We had to send our meal back twice. The walleye was burnt and the chicken and dumplings were underdone and rubbery. It was simply awful. We have eaten at HoDo many times and the food has always been wonderful. Later they told us the chef wasn’t working Thursday night. My sister-in-law and I finally went to JL Burgers for dinner. The guys had given. It’s so sad to see such a wonderful place go down hill.
We were greeted enthusiastically by Mathias, seated promptly as requested when making the reservation. We were the first dinner guests of the evening. Water followed as well as an offering for beverages. Mathias was delightfully personable! Our server didn't have a name tag on nor did she introduce herself. She seemed a bit out of sorts. We've all been there. She was prompt and the food was delicious. Loved seeing Reina Del Cid in the lounge! Great ambiance in both the restaurant and lounge. Thank you!
The Coq au vin was very basic. I would change the recipe to something for a restaurant of your caliber. Nate was a phenomenal server (as always). Friendly, welcoming and professional.
The deserts were outstanding ( from presentation to taste). We had the bread pudding and the chocolate mousse duo. The choco mousse looked like a piece of art.
Pretty good meal, although not as strong as in previous visits. In the past, there were very nice house-baked breads, but not this time. The dishes had some very nice ideas, but execution was a bit off.
Food was great. Drinks were also very well done. Service was a bit slow/scattered, but this may have been due to very large party that was dining at the same time.
The meals are overpriced. The carrot cake was just out of the freezer. It could have been so much better.
Good wine though.
Very friendly staff that was helpful with food choices and wine. Food was very good, some of the best I have had and I have worked in some very nice restaurants myself. I will go back when I stay in Fargo again.
The food was good especially the BLT salad and the prime rib. The only concern was that the expensive red wine was alledgedly served at room temperature which it was not. They could improve their wine storage. Red wine should be stored at 16-19 Celsius and allowed to warm to room temperature.
Ordered the filet mignon, which came with an interesting (in a bad way) sauce drenched on top. Anyways, after my unsatisfactory meal, I threw it all up. $40 plate wasted. Too expensive for how drenched my food was in sauce.. it should be good on its own. Crab cake and dessert was delicious however.
First time on the roof patio. Excellent experience and good service for a busy evening. Would recommend this especially on a nice day.
