    If you enjoy key lime pie, you'll really enjoy their key lime martini

    Dude. The seafood pasta is awesome.

    Don't get the flounder unless you like a lot of marine smell at table.

  • Ryan B.

    The food is definitely good, but a little too "gourmet," even for a relatively experienced foodie. It almost seems like they're trying too hard to make unique dishes.

    Friday and Saturday nights are Latin night. Dance the night away with the DJ mixing Salsa, bachata, Cumbias, merengue and Reaggeton

  • Austin W.

    The food is nothing special and way overpriced. The atmosphere isn't even that cool and neither is the bathroom (contrary to popular belief.) + it's kind of in the hood so avoid

    Tasty but small portions. Al dente

    The food isn't much, since this was designed as a cheap, fun restaurant for University of Minnesota types. But put a bottle of wine on the table, and baby, Nicole Kidman never had a prettier dinner. Read more

    Chicken viv... Was fabulous, also salads great... Very cool bathrooms. But only 3 basic dessert options so heading back to EP for pie at Wildfire.

    Sarah Johnson · July 13, 2014
  • Tami C.

    My favorite menu items are the meatballs and their carbonara! I just wish they had Muddy Paws Cheesecake for dessert :)

    Our server was very slow and made me get a different entree because he said my choice was too boring. But then the entree I ended up with was boring as well. Beautiful restaurant but won't go back.

    They serve Hopslam by the pint here.

    Don't bother with a reservation. They'll take it, but you're essentially just putting yourself on the waiting list.

    By far one of the classiest spots in Twin Cities. Every Sunday is a tango night.

    Great place for a first date - saffron chicken linguine is to die for. Free dessert on your birthday!

    Our entire table thought the food was delicious. Wonderful decor. People of all ages were eating.

  • Kola B.

    Starters were better than the entrees. Requested medium steak came out well done. They were very pleasant about the situation and offered another. Ravioli, mussels and prawns are a must!

    Bathroom's as cool as people say. Food is pricey, but you're paying for service and atmosphere.

    Took 45 minutes to get our food. The meal was so small it only took 2 minutes to eat.

    Don't get spaghetti, it's 15$ for the smallest portion.

    Food can be interesting sometimes, but the device is always terrible.

    Sunday brunch here is where it's at. Great selection of apps, entrees, and desserts and only $18.95 with coffee and orange juice included. Plus $4 bloodies and Mimosas.

    I went last year and was not impressed, my friend and I paid about $50 for our meal (even with the student discount). The food wasn't bad but the portions were tiny and we left hungry.

    Carolina · January 20, 2013
  • Cole K.

    The student discount is only 25% now (as of Dec. 20, 2012) - still worth it, though.

    Terrible, they didn't have the tickets I wanted

    The dinner time was great, elegant place,kind staff....we decided to stay for salsa and the whole place turned into mad place. College crowds, mean security personnel, cops, DJ played hiphop eeewww

    Unique and delicious food choices in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere! Located in the heart of Dinkytown, about a mile from our hotel. Make sure to ask for a student discount on weekdays!
