Our food was prepared with excellent ingredients, creativity and care. Everything we ate was delicious! This is the kind of restaurant in which one puts trust in the kitchen and simply enjoys. The serving staff was attentive and friendly, obviously well schooled.

We had a wonderful experience at Cafe Lurcat. Great food, relaxed and attentive service, excellent wine options amidst a lovely patio seating. My wife and I both enjoyed excellent pork dishes with grilled cauliflower, that was amazing.

While I had a great time at the restaurant with a group last week - I would recommend to the management and wait staff giving dinners who are so enthralled in conversation and the dining experience a gentle reminder that the restaurant is closing. My party was so into our conversation that only after a few mean glares from the wait staff did we realize the restaurant had cleared out around us. Call us unaware New Yorkers, as we're used to all night dinners that start at 9pm - I did think the staff could have been a bit more tactful in letting us know the restaurant was closing.

A return to this favorite restaurant was a bit disappointing. The food was amazing, the service was indifferent. We had to go track down our waiter to pay the bill, and he was absent for long periods. Unfortunate when paying over $400 (including Uber rides) for a meal for three.

We were visiting Minneapolis with our daughter and had dinner at Café Lurcat on the recommendation of a friend. Excellent choice. Our meal was excellent (love the sea bass), the service was unobtrusive but at the ready and the overall experience was first rate. Highly recommended for an upscale, white table cloth, foodie experience.

My wife and I absolutely love Cafe Lurcat. It never disappoints. Great service, terrific ambiance and reliable, always great food. The sea bass is melt in your mouth good. Loved the zucchini. We like to get the donuts and bring them home -- they are great warmed up in the microwave the next morning.

Great service, even better food. This is definitely a place that I would bring someone for a birthday/anniversary/first time in the city, you name it, really... The dining room is usually much calmer than the bar area, but the bar is really great if you want a livelier atmosphere. If you have any problems, the management is good about handling them. Quality overall.

While there were some good bites, as a whole the food was undercooked, over salted, and kind of a mess. If the best thing I can say out of the meal was that they have good French fries, then it was not worth the final bill. I would not go back after this meal.

We travel and dine out often. Cafe Lurcat was one of the best meals, with the best service, that we have had in a long time. Apple & cheese salad is fabulous. The sea bass melts in your mouth. Friendly, attentive staff with delicious fare is their winning combination. We give this restaurant our unconditional best recommendation.

Good experience. The menu was a little "predictable" but the execution was good.
Missed small things i.e. sharing appetizers didn't include enough crostini for one
piece per guest. Waiter was knowledgeable, and helpful. Good vibe for late night
reservations (9pm) Hanger steak was excellent.

I was in Minneapolis visiting a dear friend this past weekend and my boyfiend, a former Minnie resident highly recommended your restaurant. We couldn't have been more in heaven and thankful for the recommendation! Service was excellent (our server Tyler was awesome!) We sat outside (it was a lovely evening weather-wise so we didn't want to pass that up!)
Miso Glazed Sea Bass -- 'nuff said. Melt in yo mouth greatness!! Wow doesn't even begin to describe it.
Thank you for such a wonderful, memorable experience! I will definitely be back and plan on recommending to others who will be in the area :)

The two steak eaters at our table were overjoyed with the prep and taste of their meat! The roasted cauliflower - a favorite of ours was great as usual and the app special, octopus salad, was fabulous! We loved the Heist and the Maserati cocktails too. Service, Brent was our server, was wonderful, everyone was very attentive and had good recommendations. Not an inexpensive restaurant but oh so worth the final tab!

It was a fantastic experience! The staff was super friendly and the drinks were amazing. It's been about 4 years since I have last been there, but it definitely will be sooner this time! Definitely recommend for any special occasion!

Watch and double check your bill at the end of the night! It was 1/2 price wine night but that is not what came on our bill. Although the server corrected it, when dining with friends sometimes it is easy to toss a few credit cards down and just split the bill. Check for errors first. Food was excellent but not being able to trust an accurate bill left a bad taste. Mistakes happen and this got resolved.
