We had reservations for an early dinner before a Wild game. When we were seated in the nearly empty restaurant the host was sure to mention that we had just made our reservations the day before & told us how long we could stay without "ruining someone else's plans" tonight. We heard him telling other customers that he had to... More

We are Wild season ticket holders and we dine at the Downtowner before every home game that we attend. The food and service are always great. Dan always treats us like gold! We can't say enough good things about the downtowner. The fire roasted meat skewers are all wonderful.

I have a hard time not getting the sirloin every time because it is so good. I really like the seasoning and the green peppercorn sauce. We... More

We were a party of 8. The place was very busy (after a Wild Game). Service was excellent, and the food was delicious. Will definitely return.

We visit occasionally for brunch because the environment is so unique, and the staff are always top notch. There is usually a live pianist during weekend brunch, which adds a fun vibe. The food is good, but come for the ambience.

The service is always too notch. The manager is always present and cordial. He makes sure to stop by the table to follow up. The Petite Sirloin Steak here is outstanding...well seasoned and tender. It is the only thing we ever order. The drinks are creative and always delicious!

A great combination of nice ambience, great service, and good food made for a memorable dining experience that easily ranks in my top ten. The lamb kebab and swordfish kebab plates were nicely marinated, and well-grilled so were very tasty and moist. Monday and Tuesday nights are half-price bottles of wine which was a nice surprise.
