My sister and I look forward to a special dinner here every year when I visit Fargo from my home in Texas. In past years, our experience of the restaurant has been stellar: exacting and knowledgeable service; creative, mouthwatering food exquisitely presented and a welcoming atmosphere. On our visit there on Thursday night, we thought we had stumbled into a... More

I wanted to take my Wife and Son out for a nice, quiet, and delicious meal. Well needless to say we found it at the Ho Do inside the Hotel Donaldson. We made reservations for 5pm but I don't think I really needed them but it's easy to do online and you never know. The place is clean and comfortable,... More

Many selections from rich breakfast items to lunch items plus a counter of continental breakfast items with coffee, juice and charcuterie and pastries. Be prepared that with coffee, tea or juice and one brunch plus tips will be about $20 per person. Not the cheapest but nice. Service is ok but could be more attentive and more thorough. They prize...

we stopped in for a light dinner after a visit to the Plains Museum. Service was friendly and competent. Food was fresh and nicely prepared. Flavorful and not overly salted. The chocolate souffle and homemade ice-cream is delicious. And nice surprise.

This is a truly extraordinary boutique hotel in Fargo. We are here on business. Some of us have stayed here, and the rest of us want to. Each suite is unique and spectacular. Don't take my word for it. See for yourself.

This is the place to go eat if you're looking for an unusually classy and delicious dining experience in Fargo. It's not exactly cheap but it shouldn't be expected to be, considering how it is the most iconic and happening, hip place to eat and drink downtown.

Wonderful food and good service. Creative but respectful of regional taste and nuances. Well run. Casual atmosphere. A little more formality I. The service may be better.

Fargo's brunch scene was really lacking until the Hodo Restaurant started serving! The menu is quite a large menu with a great selection for anyone to choose from. I find most places in Fargo cater towards a certain type of person. (ie. those who consider iHop the best breakfast place) The Hodo does not. It's a foodie paradise for brunch... More

The dining room is awesome, and excellent menu, but I just love the lounge area, vibe and feel of the place

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at the Hotel Donaldson. What a treasure. The food and wait staff were great. The chef came to our table to make sure we enjoyed our meal. You deserve a meal at the Ho Do.
