I met a friend here for lunch and was impressed with the selection of good foods available. I ordered a french salad Nicoise and the tuna on top was perfectly seared and the little potatoes in the salad were cooked nicely. I was also able to get a beautiful Aviation cocktail. I had been wanting to try one for quite... More

In town for a ski weekend. This place came recommended by a friend. The place was full on a Sunday morning, seemed like mostly locals. Interesting, yet simple menu. Wife and I both had eggs Benedict. Awesome! Best I've had anywhere. Prosciutto and Gruyere on toasted herb focaccia. Maybe something you would expect to find in California wine country. Can't... More

The restaurant was beautiful. Downtown Duluth exposed brick with a lot of cool art on the walls. Best whiskey list I've ever seen. Service was professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. Menu was pretty basic but was prepared well. Will return.

I ate at Zeitgeist in mid-December with my family and we had a wonderful meal. We ordered the pretzels as an appetizer, the aioli sauces are very tasty. The Niçois Salad is incredible - fresh, perfectly cooked tuna. Very recommended! We also tried the French onion soup, a pork belly carbonara, and the duck pot pie. Everything was wonderful. Half...

Saw pictures and reviews which looked very good so decided to try. Young crowd but anyone welcome. Small but nice craft beer draft list, local and a variety. Menu is small but sandwiches were great. Better than any franchise and nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will return again!

I had only been here one other time, as I live in Duluth, and we went back last night. It was even better than the first time. The atmosphere is great, 1/2 off wine on Tuesdays, I mean who can beat that! Had the chicken coconut curry bowl, which was amazing and full of flavor. My fiance had the grilled... More

We tried this place on a recommendation - and it was AMAZING! We had a large group (10) on a Saturday night without reservations, and after a brief wait, we were accommodated. While we waited, we saw (and tasted) how skilled the bartenders were! They have a great drink menu and very deft bartenders. I had a few of the... More

I tried to get a picture of the dessert, but I wasn't quick enough! My god this meal was good! I had the Rosemary Chicken. If you've ever imagined what the best chefs in the world would do with a classic chicken dinner to make it "upscale," this is it. And it works! Dessert was creme caramel, which is basically... More

I ate at the bar. The menu offered and an interesting range of unique options - not your usual limited bar menu of burgers and sandwiches. Kyle is a terrific bartender. Also, the Monday night 1/2 price bourbon/whiskey deal (not sure if this is year round or just in the off season) offers a fun way to try different brands... More

Best fries in town — share a small plate with drinks before a movie or play. These folks are huge supporters of the arts community in Duluth, so we'd come here even if the food wasn't as good as it is. Great salads and you can't go wrong with their specials. Wonderful weekend brunch. A bit pricier than the few... More
