"The décor was interesting. We ordered Kobe Beef Lasagna, and tortellini stuffed with spinach and cheese with chicken and creamy garlic pesto sauce. It was very good and good portion size and priced right. Service was fast and friendly."

""Late-night" burger menu?! Both of our burgers were inventive, perfectly cooked, and paired well with the selection of red wines on their wine menu. But if spirits are your thing, you are in even better hands. The selection of all flavors and colors of liquor at the bar is a sight to see, and great mixology is on the menu if you don't drink it neat. Bottom line, the News Room is worthy of a good write-up in any publication."

"The food is reliable in that it is always amazing. anything I order is great. This time around went out for lunch with co-workers and the food was great but the service was lacking. It was relatively dead and we had to wait for drinks and service for quite a bit of time through out our meal. Very strange for the news room as they are usually very good with service."

"When they changed their main cook our party decided to check this place out again. We were not disappointed, their food is amazing. All of us got different dishes and ended up trying each other's, loving every bite.
Our server was attentive but not lingering and very helpful!
I love the newspaper decor, pirate bar ship, and the bathrooms.
Great place to go before a show at the Orpheum!

"Our server was AMAZING with our large group. Picked the location because they were able to accommodate our large Bachlorette Party group. The food was really only okay and would probably be priced much lower if it were anywhere else but downtown. We did love the cocktails - well priced and great selection."

"My husband and I and another couple came here after the 7:00 show at the Dakota. The location was perfect for us. The server was quite surly and short. We tried a salad, the meatloaf sampler, two appetizers and the lasagna. All were completely unremarkable. The glass of wine I had at $15 was way over-priced. We had other restaurants to choose from that were just as close. Next time, I think we will try another one."

"Had a late night dinner here on a Saturday night. They were very busy, thus, noisy. However, the food was better than average for a restaurant of this type. Had a great flatbread! Service was a bit slow, but, as I mentioned, they were very busy and it was just starting to slack off."

"Nice restrauant however looking forward to trout from reviewing the menu on website. No longer offered. Waitress commented the menu is never up to date.
Appetizers came fairly quickly, however signature cheese curds we had two orders. While enjoying the order some guests waited and after 10 minutes we were told "bad news" out of item. Guest disappointed and no substitute offered. From this point it took nearly an hour for the six entrees. Three steaks, dinner salad, two pasta dishes. Nothing special. Many options in downtown for dinner. Probably will not return.

"My wife and I ate there before going to a Timberwolves game. It was just far enough away to be a little quieter than the loud 1st ave scene, but close enough to walk to the Target Center. They had a very creative specialty drink menu. The food was fantastic. I had the meatloaf flight. The distinct kinds of meatloaf with side pairings. My wife had the chicken cordon blue. Very creative with the filo dough shell. Extremely good. We will definitely be back."

"When we got food, it was very good. Unfortunately the kitchen was apparently backed up, a fact that was not related to us until after our drinks were ordered."

"We went for a little dinner date before a concert at Orchestra Hall, but it was a lot more of a vibrant bar scene than expected. Lots of TVs took away from the awesome newspaper wallpaper in the room we were in and the service was understandably a little slow given the large group of people behind us, but otherwise the food and wine were great! Would definitely recommend!"
