Last night of business - just wanted to relax. Nice vibe - not too loud or crowded. Good drinks, good appetizers. Excellent meat/cheese tray and lavosh (flatbread). Several wait staff in training but not a miss - attentive service and quick to deliver drinks/apps.

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...More
