Went here for lunch right at the start of lunch hour and it was so nice an quiet. Our server was the owner and he was very nice and friendly. The food was very good and met both of our dietary needs (GF and DF). I had the house soup (chicken) with my lunch salad and it was AMAZING, I... More

I could not have been happier with my experience at Signature Cafe. Went there with my wife on a date and it was a wonderful experience. Note to those who need gluten-free cuisine: This place rocks - go on Tuesday nights (Gluten-Free Night!) First off, the owner of the place was also our host, cook and waiter. Honestly, I loved...

We enjoy coming back time and time again to this cozy restaurant, tucked in a hidden neighborhood in Minneapolis. The food is always carefully prepared and we were also pleased this last time to find that there are now a short list of unpublished kid options. I especially want to call out the salmon. Whether prepared and topping a rich... More

If you are looking for great food created by a well known chef, paired with wine from a very knowledgable wine expert, visit Signature Cafe. I have visited 3 times and was never disappointed. Our party sizes varied from 2 people to 10 people. They were always accommodating. One of my favorite nights was the food and wine pairing dinner.... More

Some nice lunch options including vegetarian choices. Loved the 5 onion soup. Attentive service. Nice wine list. On a quiet street. Worth a visit for sure.

What we enjoyed about this place was the menu choices. Menu contained entrees both my husband and I could enjoy. I had Coq Au Vin with vegetable risotto and root vegetables. My husband enjoyed a splendid pot roast. The feel of the small, neighborhood cafe however, is bumpy. Not many customers on a Friday night. Still trying to get it... More

This is a tiny restaurant with the majority of tables being for 2 and the tables are not very big. I had an 81/2 x 11 piece of paper and it took a big hunk of the table on my side. I like to feel comfortable and not cramped so the limited space had me feeling a bit uncomfortable. The... More

My husband and I lived in this neighborhood 24 years ago and dined at the Signature Café under different ownership. I purchased a Restaurant.com coupon so we thought we'd give it a try again. The atmosphere is nice and cozy. It wasn't super busy so they only had one wait person so service wasn't super fast, but it was friendly.... More

The most unfortunate restaurant experience I've ever had. The first issue was the fruit flies - we moved three times to try to get away from them, but had to keep swatting them away and looking at them on the table and glasses all through dinner. We should have left at that point. The menu is extensive, and it's not... More
