My wife and I arrived for a late dinner on a Saturday night (10pm). When we arrived on the patio there were 4 other tables taken. For anyone who isn't familiar with St. Paul, the town pretty much goes to sleep after 10 pm. This...More

A favorite spot in Saint Paul. You had better like garlic, a fog of the stuff when you walk in the front door. Not unpleasant, linen table cloths, great service, daily specials. Nice wine list and good food. Never been disappointed here.

The food isn't great, servers are always surly--act as if they are over-educated for their jobs and would rather be anywhere else--and it's too dark to even see the menu. Noisy, crowded, uncomfortable. If you make a reservation on a weekend night, you'll still have...More

La Grolla has become a regular in the rotation. Food is delicious and inexpensive, service is always good. Staff is friendly, the bar is “cool” and bartenders are fun to hang out with. Reminds me of a sophisticated NYC restaurant, yet located in the cozy...More

Oh jeez. This food was incredible. Our party had the chance to try several dishes, and we all came away with happy stomachs. The highlights for us were the bolognese sauce, lamb chops, halibut, and lobster sauce. Great service.

I think having a reservation on the weekend is a must and really wouldn't hurt any other time. But for Lunch and early dinner you might get lucky without one.
