Went for supper after the Ice Fishing Show, and really expected a great experience. The decor had that "this is going to be elegant" vibe to it, and the bar was reasonably stocked. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the promotional packaging. The Bourbon Old Fashioned my partner and I had was terrible, and the Cuba Libre one of... More

Stopped for lunch at about 1:20 on Monday. Love the decor, and the wood fireplace smelled wonderful on a cool Nov. day. Had a lovely booth where we could see the fireplace and watch people/traffic outside. I ordered the Cajun chichen sandwich with Moe's fries. Bun was dry and grainy. Chichen onions and pepper mix of the sandwich was perfect... More

I ordered out for lunch one Saturday afternoon to try this place because I never had. I ordered the lunch Sirloin. It came with mashed potatoes and veggies. Not a bad price. I would go back and eat in to try it again anytime.

The Downtowner Woodfire Grill proved to be a warm refuge to prepare for a chilly early winter evening in Saint Paul. We made reservations using Open Table because we knew we were going to eat prior to attending a Minnesota Wild game at the nearby Excel Energy Center. The restaurant proved to be an ideal starting point and very popular... More

Had breakfast after the Monster Dash & got right in. The food was great. Omlettes & pancakes were delicious. Not too greasy & portions were just right. Service was friendly. There's parking behind Burger Moe's across 7th Street.

Great fireplaces. Nice pizza appetizer that had fresh tomatoes, basil, and cheese. Lamb kebabs very good and the salmon and mashed potatoes.

From walking in & seeing the great atmosphere of the place, we expected the food to be top notch. However, although not the worst meals we ever ate, the food was simply average. We had a group of 9, & had a variety of entrees from pizzas, sandwiches, & salads. The overall consensus was the salads were the best. The... More

Our waitress was very nice and attentive- my husband had a pasta dish and for the price we thought the amount of the food should have been more -otherwise it was very good. We went to the Minnesota Wild hockey game and if you do this make sure you have a reservation! We didn't have a reservation, but we went... More

My husband and I dined here Wednesday night before a concert at the Xcel. Our table we had reserved was ready when we arrived. We had the Tomato/basil/mozzarella appetizer, generous portion and delicious. We both ordered steak. My husband had the tenderloin filet, I had the sirloin. They were both prepared perfectly and were so juicy. The meals both came... More
