"My husband and I shared several dishes as part of a pre fixe meal. Most were satisfactory but not particularly creative or memorable. One was inedible. We ordered a wine pairing with our meal but the wine did not come with the paired food course - had to remind the waiter to bring the wine to us. The ambiance was nice but would not go back for the food or service. There are too many better places in the Twin Cities for foodies."

"We spent a sweet Christmas Eve with another couple and ordered from the pre fixe menu. Although items were a little delayed, hey, it was holiday time, and we were sanguine. Our waitress was warm and professional. We sat by the window with the white lights of the park sparkling, but the spot was cold. You win some beauty, you lose the heat. Oh well.
The tenderloin in a crust with blue cheese was out-of-this-world delicious. The FACES' take on carrot cake was far too fussy and sugary. The only carrots were little bits. At least forewarn the guest that this cake is a very different take on the beautiful carrot-rich one most of us favor. Choose creme brûlée.
I'd definitely come again as I myself appreciate second chances."

"I wanted to love this place. I wanted to spend some good money on a nice restaurant for my mom's birthday. But the food was just OK (not bad, but nothing that really wowed me).
My brothers got the burgers, which were fairly priced, and they said it was the best burger they have ever eaten! I should've saved my $15 and gone with the cheaper burger, because my risotto was soupy and over-spiced.
The restaurant was basically empty, but yet it took us 2 hours from start to finish. Our waiter was not very attentive, and was very uncouth. The restaurant was drafty and poorly lit.
I really hope that this was a fluke and I hope that it is actually an amazing restaurant because it has such a beautiful view of Mears Park.
Please, re-do your menu and figure out if you are a fancy restaurant that can support the high prices, or if you are a mid-scale restaurant and make your dishes a little more affordable. It really didn't surprise me that your restaurant was nearly empty when we went on a Thursday night."

"I have never been disappointed in the food at Faces Mears Park. The seasonings are outstanding making the food - whether a quick bite during happy hour or a leisurely dinner - mouthwatering and memorable. I don't know what David Fhima does to his pot roast, but it is levels above mine - almost melts in your mouth. I've not been disappointed in a single thing I've ordered here. And that's amazing."

"The food was outstanding, however, the waiter informed us that the prices on the menu were not accurate. The prices had gone up and the owners did not want to reprint the menus...We ordered a salad before dinner and entrees and the salad were delivered at the same time. It was not very busy, so it was confusing. We would go back, however, just a note if you go...to ask about prices and availability of items. Many of the items had been removed as well."

"Our evening was wonderful –
The seared scallops in caper sauces was outstanding. We especially liked the Cajun twist on the paella!
Please let Chloe know that she did a great job keeping an eye on us. When my wife introduced herself, Chloe actually seemed to light up – Chloe made us feel like we were welcome guests, instead of just ‘customers’.
We will be stopping by again, for sure!"

"We dined here before the Opera. What a horrible restaurant. It took forever for our drink order to arrive. We sent one back because it was not as described on the menu. The replacement drink came as we were paying the bill. Half the items on the menu were no longer available. The specials were mundane. Food was way too salty. Service was odd. Seems like it was an effort for the wait staff to be present. We will never go there again. Make this a "last resort" option if you have to eat in downtown St. Paul."

"I brought my date to Faces for a late dinner on Saturday night. Thomas was our server and he did a wonderful job. I wanted to order an item that was currently sold out, but he helpfully suggested an alternative. We had quite a few questions about entrees and desserts, but he was very knowledgable about ingredients and preparation. Food was delicious, ambiance was great, and the service was excellent. I look forward to visiting again, hopefully in the near future."

"The restaurant was empty when we arrived, but when we requested a seat by the windows the hostess said no and was not very diplomatic. The waiter seemed very distracted the whole time, and food flavorless. They were out of quite a few things. Odd for a 5:30 reservation. We will not be back."

"The food is amazing! My husband & I took my sister & her husband for their anniversary. We shared 4 meals because none of us could decide on just one. The lobster mac & cheese is delicious. The pot roast was so moist & unique with a touch of maple syrup. We also got a seafood dish that had a little bit of everything in it. So good! And finally we had a delicious perfectly cooked grass fed hamburger. We rounded out our meal with a chocolate mousse cake. I wasn't a huge fan of it because I was expecting more of a whipped mousse but it was more of a crumbling mousse. Everything else was to die for. It's a little bit too dark but other than that has a really nice ambience. We will definitely be back!"

"Wonderful meal with LEG OF LAMB TAGINE, KEFTA TAGINE, SICILIAN RISOTTO, RISOTTO MILANESE. The tagine's were wonderfully spiced, giving the almost roasted like vegetables, subtle flavors. The lamb was fall off the bone tender. The risottos, creamier than the classic italian risottos, were perfectly prepared with wonderful flavors. The wine list is extensive and well balanced with respect to price, style, and region. The restaurant is a little outside of the area of the Ordway and Xcel Energy Center, but well worth the inconvenience. The service was knowledgeable and discrete."
