The restaurant serves good, solid fare as the salads were excellent. The service was very good as well. One problem: the tables we ate on could be cleaner; the same for the place mats on the table. Provide a better environment instead of a sticky...More

This was our 1st time at Muffuletta's. We had received a gift card from my cousin and his wife one Christmas and decided to use it yesterday (6/2/16) for my guy's 61st birthday. We had a wonderful time! Everything is homegrown, homemade, and very flavorful....More

I remember this place from 20 years ago when it had great brunches. Went back last Sunday and sadly it now looks and feels very dated. It was dark and depressing inside despite a sunny Sunday morning. We opted to sit outside. Weather was great...More

This used to be one of my favorite spots to join friends for lunch or dinner. My most recent lunch experience was a disappointment. My hamburger was tasteless and dry. How can you mess up a burger?...Muffuletta figured out how to do it. The sweet...More

The ambiance is an old Italian house with wooden floors and tables. The attention to the flavor of food was evident. The portions were not large (couldn't share a meal).

"Chef Matt Ellison ... showcasing some of the best local farmers and letting their beautiful Midwestern products make his contemporary cooking arguments for him." Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl - The daily-printed menu, filled with irresistible flavors and tempting aromas, is truly a feast for the senses. The wine menu is hand- picked by the Sommelier and also changes to reflect the seasonal and ethnic influences of the cuisine. - Jeremy Iggers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes the restaurant as "a candle-lit chef-driven bistro with an imaginative globe-trotting menu."
