Had dinner here during restaurant week in Minneapolis. We dined from the set menu and each course was wonderful. The service was 5-Star - ask for Chuck!! Can't wait to go back the next time we are there.

This is as good a fish restaurant as you will find in the Midwest. Great wine list also to compliment your dinner. No question that this is a "five star" for fish.

Wonderful food, excellent wait staff but so loud I could not hear nor talk to the people I had dinner with. It spoiled the experience. Instead of a pleasurable dining experience, I was disappointed.
