"My boyfriend and I came for brunch and had the Vegetable Benedict (amazing—the chipotle hollandaise has a great kick!) and the Breakfast Poutine. Both were delicious, but the latter was a bit too rich to finish in one sitting (it's just as good as leftovers, though). The Bloody Mary Bar has at least 5 different mixes and a ton of skewer fixings. Pomosa has a really nice flavor. Service, as always at The Happy Gnome, was excellent. All in all, an extremely solid brunch spot."

"This is the first time we've gone for dinner since we don't live in St Paul. My wife really liked the Angus Burger and I thought my Sausage and Bacon Wrapped Tenderloin was outstanding. My only complaint is that it was a little slow for finding our server to get and pay our bill because I think she had a lot of tables.
A lot of people feel they're known for the awesome patio and one of the best beer lists in the Twin Cities, but don't underestimate how good the food is."

"I don't know why I haven't discovered The Happy Gnome until now! Lovely service, great menu, terrific food (and plenty of it for lunch the next day too!), reasonable prices, and not so noisy that I couldn't converse easily with my dining companion."

"Food here is always interesting and I personally have eaten there many times. I think our group of 7 generally enjoyed lunch. The Breakfast Sammi was very good but had a little kick. I heard someone say the chili had a little kick also which she was not expecting. We did not take time to enjoy cocktails that day but I love the beers choices."

"Awesome restaurant. Our server was a great help choosing drinks from their vast array of beer. The game burger and blackened salmon sandwich were both awesome. This would be a great place to bring out of town guests to experience some local brews in a quaint atmosphere."

"I love the Happy Gnome. It's one of my favorite spots for a casual delicious dinner. Usually the noise level is fine, but this time there was a larger group who were a little loud for my tastes. Not a complaint, just a general observation, and by no means the restaurants fault, or the groups' for that matter!
I'll definitely be back because I adore the food and the service is nothing but wonderful.

"Get used to an empty glass - and not because the beer is that good. I go to this restaurant all the time because their food is awesome and the beer list is great. The trouble is, once your server drops off your first round and takes your food order, you will never see anyone ever again. You have to track down bus boys and ask them to get your server if you want more drinks or the check. It's a recurring problem that has happened to me literally dozens of times with many different members of the wait staff. If the food weren't so awesome, I'd never go back to the Gnome.
Clearly management needs to step up training at this restaurant, or they need to hire more people. Until they do, it will remain a huge pain to get a second drink here. Please fix this problem and you could be one of the best spots around!"
