Tongue in Cheek 989 Payne Ave, St Paul American • $$
989 Payne Ave, St Paul

“This is one of my favorite brunch spots in the Twin Cities! All of the dishes on their menu are so delicious and well-balanced. I especially love their teasers -- each small bite is packed with flavor and is a delight to the taste buds. I definitely recommend trying the full flight of teasers as an appetizer, it's such a tasty and fun experience. Their cocktails are great too, and in particular I love their Bloody Mary: they garnish it with pickles and a cheese stick, which I think is awesome!Not only is their food delicious, but the atmosphere is excellent as well. Great decor and overall vibe, I really like the assortment of art on the walls, and the cool mirrors behind the bar. Plus their staff is great too---friendly, attentive, and able to help with recommendations if you're having a hard time choosing. I highly recommend checking out Tongue in Cheek for brunch, it is a must whenever I'm in the area! I hope to try them for dinner soon as well, I'm sure they'll be great at any meal. (-:”

“Amazing food, super friendly staff - a must try! I ordered the O.G. wings, Naem Khao (Crispy Coconut Rice), Noakeo's Eggrolls, and Garlic noodles. My favorites were the wings and noodles. Both had a perfect balance of sweet and savory and even a little bit of spice. The rice was good, but crispy rice isn't my favorite thing. Delicious flavor and generous servings. We ate next door at wandering leaf which had lots of seating and I highly recommend digging in there. On Wednesdays, they have a deal where you can get 3 pieces of chicken wings instead of 5 and $2 off a beer for a reduced price. It was a little pricey, but I'd give it a try at least once.”

“Very clean and nicely put together place! Immediately and the whole time we were there the man taking orders was friendly, silly and super helpful. Ended up finding out he was the owner. He was nothing less than amazing and a complete sweetheart. Now the food, price point is very fair, flavor is top notch! We tried 4 appetizers and would get them all again. Hush puppies, edamame(omg the flavor on these!) Calamari and the spring rolls. Then the main course, we got the $150 large family meal and combo A to include more shrimp and crab clusters. We mixed all 3 sauces and we were fully satisfied with out tasetbuds! Best crab broil hands down I've been to in the twin cities. We will be back! This place is a hidden gem and the owners energy matches their food, they take pride in what they serve and treated every customer the same. This place deserves all the recognition for a great dining experience and flavor.”

I love sitting at the bar--the bartender is soooo nice and will make you a delicious custom cocktail for your specific tastes if you ask her! She's very busy though, I don't know how she does it all.Anyway, the place is beautiful. The chicken teriyaki is so simple yet so delicious. All the shrimp sushi rolls are incredible. I wish there were more non-spicy options as someone who hates when spice covers up flavor in sushi (I like heat! I don't like not being able to taste every aspect of the roll).”

Hope Breakfast Bar - St. Paul 1 S Leech St, St Paul Breakfast • $$
1 S Leech St, St Paul

“Went for Easter Brunch. I've been on the hunt for good brunch spots in the Twin Cities as a college student who often needs a Sunday afternoon rally. After all the places I've tried, Hope may just be the best the city has to offer.Hope, simply put, has its ducks in a row. The service is snappy. The 1-hr cap on dining time seems daunting, but you'll come to love it--it's a great way to keep customers coming in when certain types start sipping a little too slowly on their Captain Crunch cocktails. Being from the South, I'm used to brunch taking eons due to these types of tables. That's not an issue here! They're no-nonsense. Server was friendly and gave great recommendations. Every course was delicious and surprising.We started with the Captain Crunch cereal milk Rumchata cocktail and raspberry lemonade--both of which were divine. Very strong flavors that taste exactly as advertised. Not too sweet despite what others have suggested. I got the pimento cheese scramble with bacon and baby monkey cakes--good lord. Everything was out-of-this world. The peanut butter syrup on the monkey cakes is like crack--again, I'm from Louisiana, so plate-licking dishes are a high bar for me. My boyfriend got the chicken and waffles with the incredible jalapeno syrup (great dipping option for the bacon, too). He's a chicken and waffle fanatic and has gotten it at every brunch place we've been to--this is the best!We will be coming back. Very reasonable prices considering the quality and inventiveness of the food as well as the excellent service and atmosphere.”

“I thought I had written a review for this place already, oops, my bad. I love, love, love this place! Came here on a weeknight and it was packed. I did not make reservation but we got lucky by snatching two chairs at the bar. It is small inside but worth the wait. The staff was super efficient and friendly, there were two girls and one guy. The guy helped us with drinks and ordering our food. I am so sorry I forgot his name, but you could tell how hardworking they all were. We both ordered Potsticker Duet (highly recommend): *shrimp, Angus beef, chives *tofu mushroom kale *dill pork *kimchi pork My favorite was dill pork, it goes well with old godmother hot sauce. Honestly all the potstickers were amazing and their list of dipping sauce was great too. A female chef (we think she is the owner) came out of the kitchen and asked us how we are doing, and she gave us some kimchi she made the same day for samplings. Everything was delicious and the drinks were top notch, of course I always get my favorite drink, old fashioned with Japanese whiskey. Superb place.”

“Ok listen..I was fully prepared to not like the food here. I’m a very basic person. Burgers and fries are my go-to. One might say I have the palate of a 12 year old. I’ve accepted this. However, this location was chosen for a business dinner. The drinks looked cool, the atmosphere looked even cooler, so I figured “what’s the worst that could happen?”Yall.As a group of 4 during Saturday dinner rush, we were greeted by two different people and sat within a few minutes. Amazing already!Our server was very polite and knowledgeable (I can’t remember their name - tall, slender, dark hair and a mustache). Our drinks and food came swiftly, even with others helping run food/drinks, seat spots were spot-on, so there was no shuffling of anything around or auctioning off items.And the food. Lord have mercy. I ordered the meatloaf and potatoes, which I was fully prepared to swallow down with my best “MN Nice” smile because I was lucky enough to have a boss who was generous and kind enough to cover our meals as an appreciation dinner.When I tell you this was the best G-D meatloaf I’ve had in my entire life (don’t tell my gramma, lmao) I’m not kidding. The seasoning? Immaculate. The slight crisp? To die for. (we’re not gonna talk about how I thought brûlée meant I got a crème brûlée.) The potatoes??? Can I order them by the gallon, please??My only regret was eating a small meal before I left because I ended up not having room to finish it, haha! (I’m sorry I ever doubted you ) Although that was not much of an issue - our server boxed up my leftovers for me and we were good to go!If you’re like me and you’re wondering if this place is “too fancy” for your taste buds, JUST DO IT. Give them a try! You won’t regret it.”

Staff were setting up for the evening, so it took longer than usual to put in our order, even after my husband went to the bar to order. At 4:30pm, the patrons are considerably older and there were lots of regulars. Mr. Mancini made his rounds getting them. The food was great, as always. I had the pickled herring and crackers as an appetizer, then I had the petite filet and my husband had the regular filet. Thank you; we'll be back.”

“ATTENTION: Please be patient with the staff. They're a very small operation but are incredibly busy and trying to keep up They've got a small space to work and and can barely squeeze by each other when cooking so that combined with the number of orders is reasonable justification for longer wait times. I'd suggest ordering 30 min to 1hr before picking up to save some wait time during peak hours.With that out of the way, their food is so good and worth the wait! Portion sizes were plenty to be full too! The team is kind and watching them work I could tell they were clearly do the best they could! I would love to see them expand later! There is a small dine in area, but if it's peak meal times it can be a long wait, but it's understandable.Thank you to all the employees there!

However, what really peterbed me was the front desk manager. My client was of the elder, and the bathroom light would not come on. She asked to see, and the lady said, "It's been that way, (rudly), and to figure her way around it." She came out tripped, trying to find her way to the stall. This is a story I would not make up. Moreover, she was my client. I took to dinner over a 100k contract. Get your act together. Or don't charge that kind of price. Seriously.”

Myriel

Myriel 470 Cleveland Ave S, St Paul Salad • $$$$
470 Cleveland Ave S, St Paul

“My experience at Myriel was overall positive, and my biggest impression was that this establishment is built for dates because of the atmosphere. It is a small space that contains several 2-people tables, with pictures on the walls and a dark light vibe, and has a menu that changes everyday almost emulating a tasting experience. In some ways, the vibe and the unique dining setting may have overshadowed its food taste aspect.Since the menu would be different everyday, I will not make an effort in recommending a specific dish since whoever reads this may not be able to see the item anyway, but overall the food has small portion and can be easily seen as overpriced because one has to order a lot of food in order to be full, which is another reason why this place may be built better for dates rather than to satisfy cravings. But it does seem like the menu finds a good balance between appetizer, salad, legume, and meat entrées, so there is something for everyone, but once again, expect to walk out of there not entirely full. I also think the meat entrée I had, which was a confit duck and pork belly cassoulet, tasted a bit weird, almost like the different kinds of meat combined to create a weirdly meaty flavor. But everything else was good! The beet salad, lentils, dumpling, desserts, everything was good quality!Overall like I have mentioned, perfect place for dates and for two people to strike a conversation while slowly enjoying food which shouldn't be the biggest priority, but not where one would want to go to be full.”

However we all felt that the food and presentation was a three star. So take that into account if you are reading this.I know they are going for the diner/dinette vibe but the shrimp cakes in a cardboard box isn't ideal. The French fries also were good but look like something you would get next door at CHS Field.I had the duck pasta with ricotta cheese and it was a major letdown for me. I should have ordered the burrito. However the menu isn't that large so your options are limited. The pork belly was tasty but had way too much spicy sauce all over it.Will I go back? Honestly it is unlikely. I hope they can improve the food and expand the menu because the location is beautiful and historic. And our server was prompt and took great care of us.”

There isn't an insane amount of wait time, so order ahead and your order will be made within 15-20 minutes of your arrival & your call is taking promptly, even at 5pm on a Saturday! I am very appreciative of good customer service when I encounter it and feel kind words are better than a tip in instances so others can experience the same when looking for somewhere new.

“I went here on a Sunday night with my wife and two kids 7 and 11. The food, service and atmosphere was excellent. The prices were reasonable or to be expected. We had shrimp tacos, birria tacos and a chicken taco from the kids menu. The birria was super filling. We had also ordered chips and salsa and guacamole to start. The portions vs the price were not crazy but nonetheless reasonable and we could hardly finish everything anyway. I would just suggest maybe 2 or 3 adults per chips salsa or guacamole order. We also loved the drink selections, alcohol drinks seemed very appealing and a great selection but surprisingly many delicious non alcoholic drinks that we were very happy to try. We also ordered dessert which was excellent, the key lime cheesecake I believe? And the bread pudding with apple. Everything was perfect and I would really like to thank our server and wish her a happy birthday today.”

“The food here was delicious across the board, down to the bread basket they brought to the table. The atmosphere was very nice and cozy, had a retro sophisticated look to it, along with great golden era music. If I am being completely honest, the service could have been better. Our waitress forgot my husband's beer and we had to really flag her down to get a 2nd glass of wine ordered after that. She was a little pushy on ordering, although we were barely into our 1 1/2 hours of reservation time allowed per table. The wine was quite pricey and a less than modest pour. My total take away is, we will definitely come back for the wonderful food and atmosphere, but avoid the alcohol to keep the bill down a bit and hopefully get a different waitress. We will go back though for the wonderful food. I encourage anyone to give this place a try, you will leave full and happy.”

“It was St. Patrick's Day. It was pretty busy but you could still move around. The dj played a good variety of current and older stuff. It was loud enough to dance and sing along but you could still carry on a conversation without too much trouble. I did NOT have to ask everyone I talked to, to repeat themselves 100 times. Which was Very Cool. You did have to lean in a little to hear/be heard which can also be cool (wink, wink) I got my drink at the bar relatively quick. Considering it was St.Patrick's Day, the bar was full. 2-deep in some spots. I'd say I got bartender attention faster than I had anticipated when I first approached. Drinks seem reasonably priced. I had a better whiskey with juice tipped a couple bucks and still had $6 back out of $20 so not too bad. Less than I would've guessed. It was good. Atmosphere was good. I'd like to give it a try on a regular, non-holiday, day of the year”

She loved every bite.I ordered the Linguini Frutti di Mare. Lots of shrimp, mussels, and calimari. But I noted that it was a little flat on flavor that I remembered from past visits at the other location. When I got home I checked the menu and noted what was missing. Your chef needs to review his recipes. The dish was missing the crushed red pepper (which gives it it's distinctive flavor).I'll just figure that as an oversight. We'll be back. Welcome toSt. Paul!”

“Nestled in an older part of St Paul like a frontage road.Imagine walking into a step from the past like old town Italy. A pungent aroma of fresh garlic and you have arrived. Decor from the past and picture memoirs cover the walls along with red and white checkered table cloths and multiple dining rooms with round, square and booth- like tables.Greeted by hostess and a table right away.. a booth. They were very busy.. prom night attendees. As I looked around all ages, large families and smaller parties. A low light atmosphere with multicolored Christmas lights strung everywhere like a village patio. Barleys of silk flowers placed throughout and candle sticks on this quaint entry table as you walk throughCarpeted throughout.Full bar drinks, an assortment of traditional dishes served family style. Meaning a small dish serves two to three and large 5-6. The idea is you order and share bowls and plates of pasta just like homeRecommend reservations during peak times but we were lucky to just walk in.We had eggplant Parmesan and spicy chicken rigatoni. Delicious. We sldo had antipasto chopped salad ( small ). All too much to eat but the salad 10 stars. Packed with salami, Parmesan and feta, olive variety, red onion, perfect Italian dressing served with crispy bread and so good.You get big spoons in the bowls and tongs to manage serving salad.Good service, delicious Seven Daughters Moscato and a warm experienceMenu is at $27 and up for small entrees and $37 and up for large. So for two it was $137 with three small entrees including the salad and two glasses wine. Plenty of take homefor us.They gave less expensive lunch menu on back of menu,Child friendly and inviting.The parking lot packed and small and many cars parked on the street.”
