Cafe Lurcat - Minneapolis Ratings and Reviews
We loved our experience at this restaurant! We wanted to try several smaller dishes on the menu and have them brought out in a certain order. The waiter was very accommodating and had great timing for our meal (even though it was a very busy Saturday night). The food was exceptional - the steak tartare was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend this restaurant and definitely plan on going back again!
We are longtime fans of Cafe Lurcat but had not been there since they updated the menu. We were happy to see some of our favorite items had been retained. But our service this night was not on a par with the past. VERY slow with long gaps between our starters and the entrees and even longer for dessert. We were going to an event and thought we had plenty of time but ended up having to rush. And our server was aware of our time constraint. Disappointed there was no acknowledgement of the time gaps. Perhaps it was just an off-night.
Been here many times and food and service are always enjoyable. Menu has lots of options from comfort food to creative new dishes for those parties that have mixed appetites. Food is fresh and well prepared and atmosphere is lively so it is a bit loud when full (which is most typical.) Service staff is friendly and down to earth and willing to work with requests and timing. If you are in a hurry, let them know, as they let you enjoy your meal at a slower pace if you are not though they do at times tell you if there is another party scheduled for your table at a specific time.
Great use of a fantastic location. You can tell a lot of thought and effort went into creating just the right feel for the restraunt, but it does not come off feeling contrived or forced. The service is top notch, but that being said our particular server was completely unengaged and disinterested. Good at the basics of her job, but just "phoning it in" on that particular night. Over all a great experience and an excellent meal. Have already recommended it to friends and we'll definately be back.
Delicious choice for date night. We had starters, entrees and desserts from across all three of the menu categories they had available and all were great. Wine and cocktails also were good. Sea bass and pork tenderloin both good choices for entrees! Service was outstanding!
The food was wonderful, especially the miso salmon, crab cake and mini doughnuts. We were in the private room (just for regular Sat night dining with other diner), which had a nice view, but wasn't as nice for ambience as the more happening regular restaurant rooms.
After driving by Cafe Lurcat for years and being mesmerized by their twinkling lights, I finally decided to try it out. We had a birthday meal there during restaurant week. It was enchanting. The service is exceptional and the food is genuinely fantastic. It's one of those places where I'd feel confident closing my eyes and making a blind selection off the menu, because they simply don't have bad - or even mediocre - dishes on their menu.
This was my third time eating at this restaurant. It was restaurant week so it was very busy. Our table choose to order off of the menu. We ordered oysters and Tina tartar for apps. The oysters were not fresh and were very disappointing. I did mention this to the server and they did take this off of the check. The tuna was awesome. Two of the three of us ordered the scallops and we also order sea bass. The scallops were okay but not super fresh and a bit disappointing for the price. The sea bass was good. Overall this was a disappointing meal for the price. Server and waitstaff were friendly and attentive.
Restaurant Week Feb 2017 visit.
Korean Salmon entree was ordered by both of us and was fantastic.
Loved the light chile dust with the excellent sauce/puree to give it a little kick. Salmon cook was perfection as expected.
Ordered the Mushroom Brioche appetizer and it was great too.
My spouse had the Mixed Greens Salad which looked great. She's not a share-er!
Tried the multi-berry meringue dessert which was wonderful.
We've never a bad experience or sub-par meal here.
Extremely creative kitchen with great ingredients, beautiful plating and absolutely wonderful food.
The table service is impeccable too.
We dined in the bar area this time wish was very vibrant but not noisy. No plate clinkers here!
Highly recommend Lurcat.
