I have dined at Wild Rice several times in the past and had the opportunity to go again after several years. I was not disappointed! The staff was amazingly friendly and attentive and the food was perfection. (And this is a foodie talking here!) We loved the tarte flambe, the cheese plate, the scallops, the trout and whitefish and the bison. All while surrounded by that amazing scenery in a stunning room. And did I mention the lovely wine list? Just go...you will be glad you did!

The two of us were blown away last Friday evening the 10th of June as we dined here for the first time on the strong advice from friends. Such a beautifully designed building in a gorgeous wooded setting with Lake views. Such whimsical decor, bright and colorful interior, natural light, high ceilings. Huge central floor-to-ceiling glassed in Wine storage, with a wonderful selection. Food and service were top notch! Fantastic fresh & delicious taste in all of our dishes, and presentation was awe-inspiring. We eat out a lot in Minneapolis and area at some great restaurants, but Wild Rice is exquisite and has all of our restaurant haunts beat. To top off our utterly delectable meal of fine wine, smoked salmon & tomato salad, mixed green salad, fresh baked in the premises French bread, and entrees of lamb and trout....the Wine Manager gave us a surprise "cook's tour" of the kitchen & wine room. Our total experience there was Simply the Best!!

Had a wonderful experience at Wild Rice. The atmosphere is both fun and elegant. Excellent dinner music. View of the lake through the trees. The food was amazing. Definitely a great stop if you appreciate fine dining.

Dinner for four. Several choices including local white fish and trout. Service is outstanding. Atmosphere is peaceful and serene. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

Always the best in the North Woods. The staff was on top of every detail. The art and science of good cooking meet here. Had several dishes and all were winners and we would order them again.
