Prices are reasonable, food consistently good and the service is fast and friendly. Parking is a potential problem and it is difficult to get in when there is a function at the XCEL Energy Center.

I have eaten at the Downtowner three or four times since I moved to Saint Paul, and all of them have been great. Delicious food, excellent service, beautiful atmosphere. Lots of food for the reasonable prices. Highly recommend.

I always enjoy this place for getting together with friends and for dining before performances at Xcel Center or Ordway. It offers fun, reasonably priced cocktails at Happy Hour, and consistently good food. Nice options include everything from burgers and pizzas, to full entrees, and...More
