Visit 8pm on a Tuesday night. Nice vibe, although only about 8 tables with people at them. About the same number of servers appeared to be working, but none of them actually attending to customers. Our server (Brooke) disappeared for 15+ minutes at a time. Never offered refills on water even once in our 90 minutes at the table. Steak... More

My sister and I went to Bonfire on Grand Avenue before the TSO concert on Dec 10th. I made reservations for 6pm. Got there, a waiting line and the hostess said guests were hanging around longer and weren't leaving. 10 - 15 minute wait to get a table. I asked at 25 minutes, the hostess went to check on tables...

I have been to the Grand Avenue location twice, and once to the sister location in Eagan, Minnesota. The food was good, but the service was SLOW during my three visits.

I'll cut them some slack, as it was a busy Saturday lunch - so the service was slow and checking in on us was sort of lackluster. My husband had a breakfast burrito entrée and I had the shrimp flatbread. Both were tasty and serving size was generous. Prices were completely appropriate. The booth was oversized for generous comfortable seating.... More

had the classic burger; it was okay; burger was burned and since it took a long time for the burger to be made (35 minutes), I did not want to complain about it

This is all about accomodating folks and generating good will! My boyfriend and I stopped in to ask about holding a table -- for EIGHT -- for 45 MINUTES. They said YES. Minnesota really is the home of nice. We enjoyed soft drinks and local beer (BOGO); steak (one was initially overdone and was replaced -- TWICE), lettuce wraps, bbq... More

Sunday afternoon we were surprised to find Bonfire nearly empty since it is located next to Cafe Latte and on a very popular corner on Grand Avenue. The five of us were immediately seated and the server greeted us with a smile. She made several trips to our table just to help us with beverage selection. When we asked about... More

This review would have been rated poor but my husband's breakfast was very good and mine was terrible so my rating came out average. His breakfast was a spicy Walleye and eggs and was delicious. I ordered their Mexican quesadilla. It came with a very small amount of scrambled egg's, a little cheese and a half of piece of bacon... More
