Friends brought us to the Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant for a Sunday brunch that really brightened a gray, rainy day. The Inn itself is charming. We had a window table so we could watch people from the neighborhood enjoying their Sunday morning-- walking their dogs, jogging along the water. We enjoyed terrific service and delicious food. I especially liked the tasting menu for brunch, which lets you sample a range of savory and sweet plates that suit your appetite. I see why locals book their holiday brunches far in advance.

Came in at Valetines day and even though the food and service was very good, was very surpised that we only had one option of a meal and it was 100 dollars apiece. The meal was good but could get the same at another nice reseraunt for 50 dollars.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I'm staying in downtown Minneapolis. The location (right on the river) is excellent. The service was top notch on the most recent trip we made to Nicollet Island Inn. There is definitely a romantic atmosphere in the dim dining room overlooking the river. We had a variety of dishes including the Walleye, Salmon, and Pork Tenderloin. We also tried a number of the desserts and they all were top notch. This restaurant is a MUST when visiting Minneapolis and looking for a nice dinner.

The team at Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant always ensures your dining experience exceeds expectations! We made reservations, asked for a table by the window as we had an out of town guest, and when we arrived, we were seated in a private area overlooking the river. A beautiful setting, absolutely scrumptious food, and fantastic service. The menu has so many wonderful items, it's hard to decide on just one. The atmosphere is wonderful and this is one of my favorite restaurants to bring special guests or clients.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary having dinner at Nicollet Island Inn. Very romantic and beautiful setting. We shared the mussels (see picture), absolutely delicious. For our mains we had the scallops which were perfectly done and then the lamb (spot on). We also liked the fact that the meat was ethically sourced. We prefer boutique restaurants and this did not disappoint.
Zero complaints except we were thinking it would have been good to stay the night in the Inn, the rooms look cozy.
We definitely recommend this restaurant.
