BLVD Kitchen & Bar

Reviewed By Andrew T

Service was great, staff was excellent and the food was very good! We had the Ribeye and the Salmon. Somewhat pricey but still excellent. Kelly was our waitress and she was great. It took a while to get seated so we sat at the bar and the staff there was very quick and helpful. Might be our new go-to place. The one thing that could be better is the acoustics. It's very loud. Maybe some sound absorbing ceiling tiles rather than the ceramic and solid tile ceiling. Overall 4+ stars.

McCormick's Irish Pub and Restaurant

Reviewed By Doug B - Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

We visited for a friend's 70th birthday party and he had reserved a private room. The service was wonderful, with our glasses being kept filled during the social hour, hors d'oevres delivered promptly, and the food being brought, also, on time. The manager and the servers kept checking to see that all was well--and did so in an unobtrusive manner. It was a very fine experience, and we will return.

Yum Kitchen & Bakery

Reviewed By Christina T - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Love this spot. Flavorful! Good service. We've tried fish tacos, fish&chips, salads, tuna items, seafood stew, gumbo, fries and desserts... everything is delicious. The home made chips are great. The gumbo is more the consistency of a bisque but it is tasty and has some nice heat. Great spot for lunch or dinner.

Delicious and dependable. I've never been disappointed and there's always a good selection of donuts with sprinkles for my young granddaughters. Efficient service. I've been pleasantly surprised at how they keep the line moving. Good place to stop for coffee and a treat or to carry out.

6Smith

Reviewed By JeanaF - Minneapolis

I’ve been lucky to visit 6Smith on many occasions both with friends and my adult sons, their wives and kids. The food is fantastic for all occasions...my favorite was probably the Sea Bass for dinner or the bread assortment for lunch appetizer, complete with dips. I even had my birthday dinner there with six friends. A bit noisy, but tolerable once you accept that is the situation w most busy restaurants. sometimes we eat at the bar and alwaysa have good service there, too. Summers mean you can dine outside in the lakeside area. So much fun for all. The grandkids like the small, free beach right next door on one side. It’s complete with play equipment.

Wok in the Park

Reviewed By scan1man - Bloomington, Minnesota

I had lunch here, just walked in because it was close. The ambiance was casual, the service was attentive and friendly, and the food was uniquely good. I ordered the lunch special with Hot Sour Soup (good) Spring Rolls (very good, fresh, with a house-made peanut sauce), and Sesame Chicken (clearly a house recipe, made with real pieces of white meat, and very flavorful). Even the Iced tea was well done. I think all in it was a $13 bill and well worth it.

Samba Taste of Brazil

Enjoy the flavor of Brazil in a large variety of dishes with Brazilian and its European / African / Mediterranean cuisine influences: Picanha, Churrasco, Feijoada (black beans stew) Moqueca (shrimp, fish or veggies with coconut milk and palm oil) Seafood, Pastas, Risottos, Salads, Paellas and much more. Lots of low carb, low calorie, veggie and gluten free menu options.

Reviewed By Minneapolis_MnBear - Minneapolis, Mn

We've eaten dinner here several times and have not been disappointed. The owners are absolutely amazing! So warm and friendly. We enjoyed the pastels and the Samba salad is delicious. We had one of the traditional Brazilian dishes with black beans and it was really good. My only disappointment was the lobster bisque. All bisque, not much lobster.

Redstone American Grill

Reviewed By Judi H

A cut above the rest neighborhood place to have lunch or supper - or takeout. Great burgers cooked perfectly, nice variety of plates and specials, friendly bartender, very good service, pleasant environment yet a little dark and noisy. Not sure why they moved to Ridgedale Mall from the previous perfect location, particularly for outside dining. Great cornbread and desserts.
