Went to Bar La Grassa with a work group of 9 people. We sat in the private room in the back. Awesome service, awesome food. We started with several of the "toasts" - the avocado and anchovy (I hate anchovy) was amazing. All of the...More

Delicious Italian food and great service! The gnocchi is amazing as was the lamb meatball pasta. We also had a lovely cheesecake for dessert and a great bottle of Italian wine. We'll go back!

In my book this is what great dining looks like. The food is impeccable and the service the perfect intersection of knowledgeable and comfortable. The real win for me is that La Grassa doesn't FEEL like fine dining, it feels like a wildly upscale neighborhood...More

I just love this place - I go here at least once a month when I'm in Minneapolis. The food is beyond amazing and the drinks and desserts are just great. If you are ever in Minneapolis and looking for an amazing fine dining experience,...More

The food was a little disappointing not bad just not exceptional. Our table was also overcrowded. They were clearly trying to maximize the table sizes and move us through to get to the next check. The service was very good, however.
