Wendy's Reviews
 
In Italy, every meal is a journey… the same is true at Pazzaluna. Start with appetizers featuring a selection of bruschetta and pizza straight from our wood-burning oven; then move on to a traditional Italian dinner menu of antipasto or insalata (salad), to primi piatto (pasta course), to secondi piatto (main course), and finally a delicious dolce (dessert). Discover the truly Italian art of lingering over dinner with family and friends, making conversation, and enjoying wine in a setting that is both urban and relaxing.<br /><br />The award-winning and critically acclaimed Bar at Pazzaluna Urban Italian is an energetic and fun place to meet after work, before an event at the Ordway, Xcel Energy Center, Roy Wilkins Auditorium or just to unwind with family, friends, clients or business associates. <br /><br />During warm weather, relax on the patio and enjoy the sights and sounds of downtown Saint Paul (patio open May through September). See for yourself, you'll be glad you did.

PUBLIC kitchen+bar is located in the historic Noyes & Cutler Building, overlooking Mears Park in historic Lowertown, St. Paul. Casual sophistication in the dining room combined with the preservation of the original historic character of the space provide a comfortably setting to enjoy PUBLIC’s contemporary, American cuisine, focusing on seasonality and house made ingredients. Enjoy hand-crafted cocktails, great wines, and craft beers from our bar on the main level over-looking the open kitchen. <br /><br />Alternatively, the lower level features a 1920’s prohibition era lounge available for pre-or post-dinner drinks, classic cocktails or a separate menu of small plates available until 2 AM. The small plate menu in the lower level consists of fourteen items meant to be shared. The lounge level is also available for private events accommodating up to 175 guests. <br /><br />PUBLIC looks forward to welcoming you!<br />

"Public is a fun spot in Mears Park. The food is good and wait staff was friendly, but slow. The restaurant has a lot of energy and was very noisy by the time we left at 7:45 on a Saturday night. My husband and I are vegetarian and although we found nice choices to share, there weren't many options. If they could add a few more vegetarian options, we would love that. I was also a bit disappointed that the only bread option was the jalapeño biscuits for $6.00. They were tasty, but I missed having some kind of bread basket."

Forepaugh’s Restaurant is located in a beautiful Victorian mansion in the lovely Irvine Park area of Downtown St. Paul; a stones throw from Excel Energy Center and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts. The building itself is a gorgeous, multi-functional (read: wifi), state of the art venue disguised as a charming, quaint and thoroughly authentic Victorian mansion. The seven intimate and artfully decorated dining rooms straddle the past and future gracefully, featuring both period décor and brilliantly conceived, cutting edge New American Cuisine. The wine list is expansive and supported by a wine cellar/chef tasting room that is available for small, intimate gatherings. The bar, comfortable and cozy, --featuring the finest in distinctive liquors and specialty drinks. And the service is excellent. Join us for a big night or a cozy romantic dinner. Business groups, rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions and parties of any shape or size are encouraged.

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."

First Course bistro is a little bit of Soho, "oh so close to home", with it's casual yet chic decor and its sophisticated yet comforting style of contemporary American cuisine. First Course is perfect for a creative start to your evening or for a multi-course evening of its own. Guests may relax on the comfy sofas, warm up by the fireplace or belly-up to the bar before enjoying one of the seasonally handcrafted meat, fish, pasta or tapas dishes.

"First Course has wonderful food, but needs an update on the interior and some help in timing the food. There were four of us for dinner. Our server took our appetizer orders, brought out delicious bread for us to snack on and then brought one couple their appetizer. After they had finished their appetizer and had it cleared away, our appetizer came out. This would have been fine if we had been sharing all the food, but we were expecting those things to come out at the same time. The tuna appetizer was great. The entrees did come out together and were also delicious. However, the table was an old wood table that has a finish that feels very sticky all the time. This detracted from the dining experience."

"We went on Father's day for a special treat for our special dad/husband. When we got there, we were greeted in a friendly way and seated pretty quickly. Unfortunately, it took quite a while to have a server come. Then, when the server came to take our order, they were out of several of the things we hoped to have. Our server turned this unhappy start to the evening totally around. She brought us some side salads to munch on while we waited for our food, told us she would do whatever it would take to make "Dad" happy, and then brought us some complimentary desserts at the end. The food was delicious, but the service made what could have been a disastrous evening, a fun and happy celebration. We thank you, Todah rabah!"
