Took my wife here for her birthday and had a good meal. Service was terribly slow and we seemed to be a outcast table for some reason. Menu has many creative dishes from the chef. We settled on a pasta dish and salmon. Salmon was cooked a little too much - pasta was okay. Service was real slow - turned... More

Just stopped here for a beverage after a day of shopping and sightseeing. The cocktails are outstanding! We loved the art and the ambiance too. And people watching through the big window overlooking the Main Street made for a perfect afternoon in Fargo.

I always enjoy Hodo when I'm in town for business. Love the atmosphere with eclectic art - and food is delicious and creative too - everything I've had has been a taste sensation. Hodo Winter Salad and the Scallop Appetizer very good. And then there's the cocktails - always an adventure. Fun in Downtown Fargo - something you would find... More

The only mistake I made was not getting the band's name. Dinner (walley po' boy) was perfect. The french fries are excellent, and the po' boy was fresh, the hoagie just right, the veggis crisp. I'd go again and again.

Every visit to Fargo, I make it a point to stop in at the Hodo for an evening meal and a drink. First-rate food that is well prepared and presented that uses a lot of local sources is standard. A good variety of conventional and creative cocktails is also offered. People watching on Broadway is an added bonus. Always a... More

Not impressed at all. The prices were too high for the drinks and food which were average in value. Also, unless you like LGBT gender fluid establishments then you will not like the atmosphere.

This is the best food that we had the whole time we were in America. The red pepper soup was delicious as was my lobster creole with risotto. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food choices and the service was excellent. What a change from the usual American fare of steak, chicken, pizza all with fries. Highly recommended.

Some of the food combinations seemed a bit strange but what we orderd treated great. We started off with the shrimp and grits, it tasted great but the cinnamon flavor in the grits was not what we were expecting. My husband orderd the filet mignon while I orderd the pork cheeks. The pork cheeks just melted, I could've eaten it... More
