If you want Italian with a modern twist that will blow your mind this is he place to go. Whatever you do make sure you get the soft egg and lobster bruschetta.

This place is a favorite in the Twin Cities. Food is always great, service is outstanding and atmosphere is good. They have a great cocktail menu and I have tried many things on the menu and all are great. Lobster scrambled eggs Bruscetta are a must have item every time I go. The Pappardelle with the veal ragu is also... More

Went to Bar La Grassa with a work group of 9 people. We sat in the private room in the back. Awesome service, awesome food. We started with several of the "toasts" - the avocado and anchovy (I hate anchovy) was amazing. All of the food was delicious. Also, the "Valentine" drink is a good one! Would highly recommend this... More

Delicious Italian food and great service! The gnocchi is amazing as was the lamb meatball pasta. We also had a lovely cheesecake for dessert and a great bottle of Italian wine. We'll go back!

In my book this is what great dining looks like. The food is impeccable and the service the perfect intersection of knowledgeable and comfortable. The real win for me is that La Grassa doesn't FEEL like fine dining, it feels like a wildly upscale neighborhood bar that just happens to have the best staff, food and ambiance for a state... More

Bar La Grassa deserves its good reputation as a go-to for upscale late night dining in the Warehouse district. In a sea of bad bar and fast food, you can get an elegant meal here after hours. We visited after 10:00pm last Saturday post a charity event that was light on food. Excellent drinks, and just the right Pasta Carbonara... More

The benchmark. I can't say enough about their dishes. The charcuterie plate is great and their pastas are unbelievable. My favorite is the PASTA NEGRA w/ SEA URCHIN CHILI, MUSSELS & TOMATO. Yes, it does get loud. If you don't make a reservation, it can be a long wait. But it's so worth it...

Bar La Gassa used to be my favorite restaurant in the city. Unfortunately I can't say that anymore. Aside from it being so loud you can hardly hear the person sitting across from you, the food seems like it has gone down in quality significantly. The soft eggs & lobster bruschetta felt like I paid $19 for a piece of... More

I just love this place - I go here at least once a month when I'm in Minneapolis. The food is beyond amazing and the drinks and desserts are just great. If you are ever in Minneapolis and looking for an amazing fine dining experience, go to BLG! You will not be disappointed!
