They have an interesting menu with unique food. I just wasn't all impressed with how it tasted. I did like the drinks however, more than the meal.

Stopped in during Stroll on State. We had yummy gin cocktails. The bartender was attentive and fun! We split three delicious small plates. The cheese plate always shines. Grabbed cheese curds for my boyfriend. He swears they are the best.

Very cool place in the downtown area. It has great atmosphere and the food is tasty and even a bit inspiring. Great local seasonal food served with pride and a dash of courage of trying new combinations and tastes. The staff was great.

The place is fine--feels like they are trying too hard to be a hip and happening place. The food was fine but prices are totally out of line for what you get and the area. I'd rather go for a Ruth Chris steak dinner than...More

The Dinner Party is our inspiration. We have communal seating, chefs serving your food, and a group of bartenders creating innovative cocktails. Our passion is local foods; we work with many area farmers and producers to create a simple yet elegant menu featuring what's fresh from the area. Located in a historic district downtown, we have built our tables and bar from reclaimed wood that dates back to the 1850's. A warm urban restaurant dedicated to supporting local industry.
