Very cool vibe here, it's like an old English pub. Food was great, I ate here 3 nights in a row while staying at the hotel. I had a different bartender 2 of the 3 nights, and were both very helpful and friendly. The only feedback I would give would be to make some of the sandwich and burger offerings... More

Just OK. With so many restaurants around this hotel, I would call it a fall back on place. Not bad, not good. The workers try their best but nothing is memorable. Salads, soups the best of the menu. Drinks seem overpriced even for a hotel, and no happy hour.

Handy when traveling with older generation. Easy access to restrooms nearby and comfortable seating.

In Minneapolis for business and ended up eating here twice, enjoyed both times. There was some remodeling in progress, not sure exactly what was being done. The decor was very old school, almost to the point of being kitschy, but it wasn’t really a distraction. We had both lunch and dinner, and both were excellent. Sandwiches were generous and tasty....

The entire first floor needs interior decorating including the restaurant.. Looks and feels used and old. It could be turned into quaint by redecorating with the same European look. Our party of ten ate there Thanksgiving day 2016. They simply did not put out near enough food. Myself and guest both felt like had to take little portions so there... More

This restaurant has a menu that is old-school, with a fondness for French-influenced flavors. Wonderful, attentive staff. Quiet dining room. Good, unexpected choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

It smells like an old folks home, and the food is uninspired and somewhat reminiscent of a retirement home too! It was pretty tasty, despite the mushiness. So in essence: fine for taking grandma out for dinner, but not for a romantic first date or a fun night out with friends.

Great food. Friendly staff. Fast service. Clothe napkins. The bar directly off the restaurant is great. Is new as they are remodeling the old one. Has a huge screen tv. Very sports oriented and Zach the bartender is awesome. Food a bit spendy but delicious.

Usually hotel restaurants are OK at best. When we checked in a woman exclaimed they had just had dinner in the Normandy it was "Fantastic with a real Chef." We chuckled and decided to go in. The food was excellent. We've eaten there several times now, and the chef's specials are wonderful. Smoked Pork Chop with smoked, red, cheese grits... More
