The New Scenic gets everything right except their inhospitable hostess that can't (won't) seat your party until she's good and ready to, even when the restaurant is an empty cavern. Instead, she will chat to the cooks, tidy her station, saunter over to take a...More

Since it was our anniversary we dressed up, but it wasn't necessary for the New Scenic Cafe, it is a casual place. It has a nice garden out front as the pictures show. We had the filet and sea bass. Both were excellent. We'd recommend...More

I've heard rave reviews for years about this place but found it to be just OK. I've eaten better meals on the north shore. The lobster roll special was good, but nothing special. That seemed true of the whole meal: good, but nothing special.

This is my go-to place to impress visitors for lunch or dinner. The food is consistently great and fresh. Try starting with the sashimi tacos or asparagus galette. Nice wine list. Entrees rotate by season. Be sure to save room for dessert! Finish your meal...More

Is there any dog friendly area here? Could we tie up our pup somewhere around the garden while we eat?

I believe so, but best to call them. They have a nice outdoor area and most restaurants in Duluth that have an outdoor eating area are pet friendly.
