This is one of the best restaurants in Minneapolis hands down. They have a limited menu, but everything on it is fantastic. My favorite is the chicken. They prepare it differently each week and I haven't been disappointed yet. Really nice wine list and 2...More

Wonderful meal with coworkers in this quiet restaurant. The restaurant was not busy on a Wednesday night. The service was attentive and the food outstanding. Great salads and a very good halibut. Dessert was likewise exquisite. Highly recommended.
