Marin Restaurant & Bar is an inviting combination of Northern California and Minnesota influences. It’s a showcase for inventive, health-conscious cuisine with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients served in a beautiful and refined urban setting.

"This sister restaurant to Mill Valley Kitchen, located in Le Meridien Hotel, is smart looking with very good food to match. Overlooked, for some reason, but busy enough with lots of good food and very good attention. 5 oz steak was delicious and accompienments excellent."

Coalition Restaurant combines an inspired menu with a casually sophisticated setting in a historic downtown Excelsior main street building. The menu takes its inspiration from classic American dishes like beef, lamb, pork and walleye, creatively prepared, vibrantly presented, and influenced by cuisines around the world reflecting the global, sophisticated, expanded palates of today.

"New restaurant in Excelsior. Excellent food, great ambience. Borderline too loud. Bruschetta with Edamame as an appetizer was a winner as was the Cheese Curds and Broccoli. I had Roast Pork and my wife had the Walleye with Maple Fried Rice, both top rated. This place will shortly be a tough reservation to get. Service a tad slow but our server kept us informed of the progress of our dinner."

"The Lamb Chop special on their seasonal menu is hands down the best lamb dish I have ever had...and I love lamb. So tender they don't even give you a steak knife...easily cut with a butter knife! Fantastic Martina's, classy service, rich atmosphere especially at Christmas. Our most visited restaurant."

"Not over the top great like some other reviews have claimed. Pretty restaurant, nicely appointed. Menu was very interesting. Pork chop was excellent. Osso Buco was good but not exceptional. Award winning Cioppini not award winning. Old Log Old Fashioned was excellent."

Salut Bar Américain is the brasserie down the block. Warm and welcoming, with an urbane wit and urban sensibility, it’s an afternoon hangout and an evening refuge. It’s your neighbor with a French accent. The setting evokes a classic Parisian bistro/restaurant. The service is spirited, confident and capably executed. And the cooking captures the freshness and hearty flavor of French cuisine. It’s the vibe inside that sets Salut apart from bowing maitre ‘d’s and sniffing sommeliers. From the welcoming wine list, to the playful décor, to the genial buzz in the dining room, Salut celebrates the French restaurant’s essential qualities while dispensing with the exclusionary ones. It demystifies French food by making it accessible and rewarding while poking fun at the stereotypes that surround it. Salut gives French dining a shot in the arm – while giving the French a gentle kick in the derriere. In this sense, Salut is a dual citizen: Authentically French – but proudly American.

"Food was spot on. I had a steak and my SO had the trout. Drinks exquisitely prepared. Great atmosphere. Not really "French" but I'm ok with that."

"Rotisserie Chicken the very best in the Twin Cities. Cornbread is out of sight good. Lemongrass good but not great. Drinks and wine list are excellent. Very cool vibe. Good service."
