Wonderful for lunch and a good glass of wine. We have eaten here for dinner, not as good as so busy, however the restaurant side is outstanding

“The best thing I ever ate...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

This was our first visit to Fargo. After doing some shopping we decided to head downtown to have a nice lunch. After parking our car and walking a few blocks to find somewhere nice, the large window with "Stay Classy Fargo" painted on it intrigued my husband and I so we headed to the "HoDo". First impression~very friendly staff. We walked in and were immediately greeted. After finding our place in front of one of the many huge windows we were greeted by our waitress, Ashley T. (atleast that's what it said on the bill), who was amazing. My husband ordered the pulled pork sandwich & Fries off the lunch menu and I ordered the Lobster Bisque and Salt & Pepper Fried Calamari. I wish I could eat that every day~I can't even begin to describe the amazing flavors I tasted. The food is absolutely worth every cent. We WILL be back, even if we make a trip to Fargo JUST for the HoDo!

“Gorgeous decor, fabulous food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

It's a well decorated restaurant. The service is friendly and efficient.

My meal was delicious: the famous lobster bisque, main of lamb and a fabulously decadent dessert.

This a very popular restaurant and is the kind of place you could spend several happy hours. Highly recommend it.
