The only possible complaint about this place is that it is usually packed unless you go in mid-afternoon or go in late.The food is excellent and the beer selection superb. Its a real comfortable vibe. the place is usually filled with neighborhood people and anyone else who has the patience to wait for a table. the wait is worth it.

Casual/upscale, great neighborhood feel, really excellent food. The bar is fine if you can't get a table or a booth. Good tap list -- I've enjoyed Saison Dupont, Deschutes Hop Trip, Old Raspy among others. Best of all, you can go for a stroll at Lake Harriet before or after.

We loved this place and if we're ever in Minneapolis we would go back for sure. The atmosphere was casual but upscale. They have a kitchen bar you can sit at and watch the food being prepared. Old building in a very nice neighborhood. The quality was excellent. Service was very good. Our waitress was Lauren and she was very helpful and kind. Beer selection was very good. The food was fantastic, I had a spinach salad that had the best dressing with bacon in it that I've ever had. My son had a potted meat dish that he loved and my husband had a clam ravioli dish that was delcious. We also ordered two side dishes that were really good. Value was very reasonable.

Stopped by for dinner on a Sunday night, 2/12(whihc i recommend, as they dont take reservations). Waited 45 min at 5 on a sunday - i hear you can wait as much as 2 hrs at the same time on Friday or Saturday.

Very small and cozy with limited seating. Where it lacks in abundance it surely makes up in its creative food offerings, tap list, and general uniquness.

They must have had 24-30 taps with a huge focus on midwest locals, belgian imports, and a few huge seasonal beers. I had two hopslams and an ABT 12. Other current notables included Founder RIS and breakfast stout, NB La Follie, Fulton, Harriet Brewing and more i cannot remember.

We ate at the kitchen bar where you can actually chat with the chefs and watch the preperation. I highly suggest the potted meat and the Tagliatelle. Cant wait to go back.

Enjoyed brunch here after hearing good things from some friends. Pretty small place which means seating is tight and you are pretty close to neighboring diners. We were seated at the kitchen bar which overlooked the busy chefs. Quite entertaining and cool spot to dine really. The food was awesome. Very well done dishes. Even after eating our meal, we watched the preparation of other dishes and were really tempted to order more. Service was terrific. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.

As for the beer, a pretty impressive list of 20 taps. Some quality staples such as Summit Oatmeal Stout and LaTrappe Quad. Some seasonals and specialties also such as Goose Island Dominique and New Holland Charkoota Rye. As for pricing, I kind of go back and forth between two and three dollar signs. Some of the higher end beers were priced very well, but the lower end ones were priced higher than what I have typically seen elsewhere.

Overall, this is a nice little neighborhood eatery with awesome food and a great little beer list. I would go back for sure.
