About Us

The best fine dining experience in the Twin Cities

At the Downtowner, our meats and vegetables are prepared over an oak-wood burning grill, following ancient fire-roasted cooking traditions. The oak wood imbues our food with a mouth-watering subtle smoke that enhances the flavor of everything from savory boneless leg of lamb to center cut swordfish and sirloin steaks. Working in concert with the grill is our oak-wood burning oven. Burning at a 500 degree temperature, the oven cooks our homemade pizzas and flat-bread to perfection. Thanks to the visible kitchen, our guests are able to see the cooking process as their meals are fire roasted or oven baked to their satisfaction.

Downtowner is always a great meal. You can have your choice--lots of variety. Drinks or win if you choose. It's warm, cozy, good food and excellent service. I have recommended it to many friends and they all feel the same way--it's a great choice!

We have dined at the Downtowner many times, and have without exception found it to be a good choice. Otherwise we would not continue to go there. It is perhaps our favorite place to dine with friends.

We received a gift card for the restaurant for Christmas and decided to use it to take a couple of friends out for lunch. We were greeted at the door and seated immediately. The wait staff was great...very helpful and on top of it; quick to greet us and take our drink orders and allowed us to take our time with the food orders. They served us 2 huge yummy popovers which we shared. Each of us ordered a different entree including grilled shrimp, salmon, walleye and steak. The food arrived hot and tasty. All enjoyed their meal. We shared 2 apple/pear crisps served hot with ice cream for dessert. We’ll be back.
