So Classic They Named a City After It. Business or romance, lunch or dinner, casual or upscale, The St. Paul Grill is many things to many people. This Saint Paul icon features a classic, yet surprisingly diverse menu ranging from prime steaks and thick-cut chops, to succulent poultry and fresh seafood. The Grill is known for its classic bar offering the Twin Cities' finest selection of rare spirits and wines, served by friendly and experienced bartenders who know how to mix the perfect cocktail. From the incredible food, generous cocktails and outstanding wines, to the impeccable service and unrivaled location overlooking Rice Park and near the Ordway Theater and Xcel Energy Center, The St. Paul Grill has a reputation that spans generations. It's the kind of place that has regulars, and makes new ones all the time. Read the reviews, or better yet, ask anyone who has spent time in the Twin Cities and you'll find The St. Paul Grill is "A Favorite on Everyone's List."

Relax and take your time sampling our seasonally spontaneous food and extensive selection of wines and beers. We support local farmers and artisans, ensuring that we serve the freshest produce, meats and cheeses possible. Our stunning bar boasts 40 wines by the glass, served from a temperature-controlled cuvee system, and more than 100 wines by the bottle. We are here to make you feel at home, so sit back and lounge near our fireplace, belly up to the bar, or enjoy a leisurely evening in our dining room. Make a reservation by 4:00 on the day you plan to join us and receive a special treat from the chef!

"Dined on a Friday night and enjoyed the experience. I particularly enjoyed the cheese flight option and my waiter was very helpful and knowledgable. I followed with a nice house salad and pan-seared duck; both portions were very small. I don't think a big heaping plate is appropriate or even appreciated when quality is what brings you into a place like Sonte's but even I was surprised by the small portions. But it was still worth the price charged and I would defiantly return the next time I visit Med City;-)"

"We dined the evening after I ran Boston, so flavors often seem off to me. But not the steak - we each had the 8 oz filet, and the flavor, tenderness and preparation are what any good steak centered restaurant should be capable of. Like those other establishments, MOOO is an ala carte experience and although portions are to share, they are still quite pricy and given the whole, I'm not sure that a well-prepared steak is so clever or brilliantly imagined to deserve the high prices. Our meals added up to $238.00 with two glasses (each) of mid-priced wine and no dessert. We had far more creative meals while in Boston; with amazing confluences of flavors and textures to savor at half the price. Not a unique thought but it's my reality!"

"We were in town to run Boston and stayed nearby. We dined at Rustic Kitchen for one evening dinner and twice at lunch. We enjoyed both menu's - the lunch menu is actually quite interesting and varied as compared to others nearby. All of our meals were quite fabulous and we went away content each time. Great service, fair prices (we think) and nicely crafted menu options. We will return next year!"

"Crowded and tight on space but big in ambiance and lush with Italian influenced menu. We enjoyed the experience went away quite satisfied with our meals, the wine and the service. We always look forward to dining at Grotto the night before we're in town for the marathon!"
