I thought the place was going to be pricey and the food over rated. Shocker, the prices were reasonable and the food amazingly delicious. I had the Green Living Rice Bowl. What an amazing flavors. It was like an exotic blend of various ingredients that just complimented each other without overpowering any of the flavors. I order mine with shrimp... More

I met a friend here for lunch and was impressed with the selection of good foods available. I ordered a french salad Nicoise and the tuna on top was perfectly seared and the little potatoes in the salad were cooked nicely. I was also able to get a beautiful Aviation cocktail. I had been wanting to try one for quite... More

In town for a ski weekend. This place came recommended by a friend. The place was full on a Sunday morning, seemed like mostly locals. Interesting, yet simple menu. Wife and I both had eggs Benedict. Awesome! Best I've had anywhere. Prosciutto and Gruyere on toasted herb focaccia. Maybe something you would expect to find in California wine country. Can't... More

The restaurant was beautiful. Downtown Duluth exposed brick with a lot of cool art on the walls. Best whiskey list I've ever seen. Service was professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. Menu was pretty basic but was prepared well. Will return.

I ate at Zeitgeist in mid-December with my family and we had a wonderful meal. We ordered the pretzels as an appetizer, the aioli sauces are very tasty. The Niçois Salad is incredible - fresh, perfectly cooked tuna. Very recommended! We also tried the French onion soup, a pork belly carbonara, and the duck pot pie. Everything was wonderful. Half...

Saw pictures and reviews which looked very good so decided to try. Young crowd but anyone welcome. Small but nice craft beer draft list, local and a variety. Menu is small but sandwiches were great. Better than any franchise and nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will return again!
