I and my wife went here for dinner on short notice. The atmosphere was nice, the drinks and appetizer were good. However, the main course took a little longer than normal and when my wife cut into her steak it wasn't cooked enough. We spoke...More

It's a modern bearded hipster chic place. Fine. But the boubon/whiskey list is superlative, the service is attentive and helpful, and the food is outstanding. Very meat-forward menu. Don't be a noodge and come here if you don't eat meat and then complain about it....More

Had an amazing experience with another couple eating in this Minneapolis restaurant. The entire meal was as good as it can get and the service was outstanding. The steak was one of the best I've ever encountered, and the side dishes made for a gourmet...More

No official dress code, however if you're going for dinner I wouldn't dress down too much, you'll feel out of place. It's a downtown, more "fancier" restaurant, so people naturally get a bit more dressed up.
