Never a bad meal here, this is our first choice to go to before a Wild game or concert at the Xcel. Outstanding service.

I read some mixed reviews but the restaurant is very convenient to The Saint Paul Hotel so we gave it a try. So for the good and the bad. The atmosphere is boring and uninviting. The server came right away for our drink orders and...More

They have a fantastic Bento box, sushi, sashimi and apps at fair prices for the quantity and quality of the food. I came here in June before the Iron Maiden show at the Xcel with some friends for dinner and it was fantastic. They also...More
