Went a little bit later on a Friday night. We enjoyed sitting on the patio outside. It was a little buggy, but it was outside... and and later in the evening. But it was a nice and calming view. The service was spot on. The Oysters Rockefeller were superb!I haven't had them that delicious in sometime. Kudos on you! But the main courses were, disappointingly, lack luster. The firstwas the Pork Shoulder with eggplant and pickled cucumber. The cucumber was succulent, crisp, tangy and wonderful. The eggplantwas also perfectly done and just delightful. But the Pork Shoulder was so tough, fatty and just chewy. I don't really recall theflavor as I was too busy chewing and gnawing on gristle. The Tenderloin Filet on the other hand was a great cut of meat and itwas well prepared. Cutting was like cutting butter. The flavor... heavenly. I won't keep going as we've all had a wonderfulsteak and this is in the top ten for me. The potatoes were lackluster. Fairly flavorless. Disappointing. The broccoli floretsweren't really cooked. Infact they weren't cooked really at all. After two bites of eating raw broccoli, I gave up. I wouldhonestly give this place two stars, but the service pushed the stars to three. It was a place to try out. Would I go again? No.Not for the price you're paying for subpar food. I hope this helps. Cheers. Read more

Stopped here to eat, staff was super friendly. We ate outside with a view of the river. Food was amazing. Cheese curds were... fantastic. The salmon so delicious. Dinner came with a salad and bread roll. Highly recommend for a night out. Read more

Beautiful location overlooking the Mississippi River. We went on a Sunday evening so it was not very busy. We were able to... request a table by the window. Service was excellent! I loved that used plates and silverware were swiftly removed andreplenished between courses. We ordered the beef tartare starter, which I found to be too heavily seasoned with pepper andsalt. Husband agreed but enjoyed it. The accompanying field carrots and wasabi sauce didn’t balance well with the tartare butwere yummy eaten on their own. Mains were Duck L’orange and Scallop Risotto. Duck was well prepared and very enjoyable.Accompaniments with the duck were baby turnips and swiss chard. Probably okay if you enjoy those but we would have preferred analternate starch and veg. Diver scallops were excellent, unfortunately the risotto was undercooked and had an overpoweringmushroom flavor. Server graciously substituted it for a plate of charred vegetables, which were lovely. Classic boulevard (ryemanhattan) was lovely. Definitely worth the dining experience and although some our selections were not cooked to ourpreferences, we were happy to have tried it. Great upscale establishment. Will try again. Read more

Friday fish was amazing! The cheese curds are a must. The menu was small, but it appears they change it throughout the year, as... well as offering specials. The bartender is a lovely lady who went the extra mile to make a couple of mojoitos for us, althoughthey weren't currently on the menu. Read more
