Catering >Savories European Bistro
Lake Elmo and Stillwater need. more places that serve breakfast during the week. We live in Lake Elmo but we are running out of good lunch and breakfast options. I was with my sister from the other side of town and she was shocked that stillwater did not have more good choices. Food was ok but service was slow. I think they need more of a selection on there current menu.
Does not live up to its rating. After reading all the good reviews, we decided to try Savories for New Years Eve. What a disappointment. I ordered lamb cooked medium rare and it was served beyond well done - overcooked, dry and tasteless. And it was the last portion in the restaurant, so they were not able to replace it. After essentially ruining New Years Eve dinner, we were offered a $10 gift certificate that we could use on our next visit. I am not likely to drive 30 miles from Minneapolis to get a $10 discount on a meal at a restaurant that wasn't all that good the first time. This restaurant really does not qualify to be on a list of destination spots for dining. And don't believe the single dollar sign in the codes for prices - dinner is much more expensive than you would expect with only one dollar sign in the description.
they are back in the culinary "saddle". in early '04 they may not have been hitting just right but the last year and a half has allowed savories to become one of the better restaurants in the twin cities. food is great the desserts will send you to heaven. dont rely on outdated reviews!
This bistro gets it right--down to the sturdy froth on its cappuccino and the high-quality desserts..
The daytime sandwich crowd is replaced by couples and friends tasting exquisitely crafted nouveau wines at night. The soothing, soulful sounds of Ray Charles and Louis Armstrong win out over the afternoon's pop and folk. The menu and cuisine change every few weeks, but favorites include walleye fingerlings with confetti corn cakes; herb-infused roasted lamb over couscous; and extraordinary creamy vegetable risotto with herbs, balsamic vinegar and white wine.
Best of Stillwater. Savories is a great place to meet friends for wine & food. Their menu is innovative & creative, wine selection is wonderful. Desserts are to die for! I highly recommend Savories as a place to go on a regular basis. I'm never disappointed!
Great eating. Service can be slow, but it is more than made up for by the food. Ask for a window seat by the standard oil station - pretty good people watching during the summer.
I'm now a member of the dessert of the month club. I just love this place.
Bring back the plantanos. Madros es muy loco!
Quaint bistro. Great for having coffe, a yummy, fruity dessert and then reading a bit of your current novel.
The best tomato basil soup.
This is a really great place for creative foods. The best tomato basil soup I have ever had.
Really comfortable atmosphere, casual but not too casual. I like to get a seat near the window to do some people watching. They have a very nice wine list. Friendly, knowledgable wait staff. I have always enjoyed a pleasant drive over to Stillwater to check out some of the shops and now it's not complete if I don't stop at Savorie's. Oh, great desserts too!
Great Eats!. I have found the food and the service to be tremendous. Features include a very diverse menu and a wisely chosen selection of wines. The owners did not do plantains this year, which makes all of Stillwater sad. It's usually best to call ahead, but walk-ins can happen.
