Our food was Great! Décor was nice. Server was also nice, but not around to order wine or to get our bill even though it was not busy in restaurant when we were there at 1;30. She was not waiting on others. She may have been helping in kitchen but she was out of sight. None the less we would definitely go back.

Loved this place! It has a great atmosphere and even better food. I had the sea bass and it melted in my mouth. My husband has the filet and it was very good. It is definitely worth returning to and will have no problem recommending it to anyone who is going to that area.

This restaurant is a classic lunch spot to enjoy the warm Minnesota seasons on their patio or the twinkling patio lights through the snow from the beautiful interiors of the restaurant. Great cocktails, salads & pasta. Their warm bread basket is a must for those who enjoy a toasty treat with their meal. The service, main courses (other than the pasta) are not what I remember. Kind but slow, with little attention to detail - missing silverware, not clearing plates when next course arrives, poor descriptions of food. Entree’s are swimming in carbs & butter and sautéed with cracker crusts unless requested. But if you are into Minnesota comfort food on a cold wet night, this is the place you would enjoy.

The food was delicious, the service was exceptional, and the atmosphere was romantic. We went there for my birthday, and overall it was an excellent visit! The caprese salad was the best I have ever had at a restaurant.

I have a business lunch meeting here about every other month. If it were closer to my office, it would be even more often! If you haven't been yet, try the walleye. If you've been and haven't had the walleye, try the walleye. The tortiglioni rossa pasta is a close second favorite of mine! The atmosphere is what I'd consider "happening busy" without being overly loud. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Well done!
