Conveniently located in downtown Minneapolis and inside the Radisson Blu, this is a stylish and modern restaurant. The menu was impressive and my strawberry basil Moscow mule was delightful. We started with walleye fritters which were very good -- think delicious fish hush puppies. My veggie burger was so-so ... but it's a veggie burger so it's not going to be amazing. My colleagues bison burger was hot and spicy and very good.

Located in the Radisson Blu Downtown which was where I was staying. This was a great place to eat after a long travel day that did not require getting out and looking for something close. Food and service were both great.

My wife and I like to eat an early dinner and without knowing stumbled on happy hour at the Cocktail Bar. We ordered from the regular menu but the happy hour menu was great with good prices on appetizers and drinks.
The place is clean, staff is OUTSTANDING and there is always someone there to help out if your server is occupied at another table.
Great tasting food too. We were treated and fed like royalty.
