St. Paul >Muffuletta Cafe
User review by randystarr. We live in the neighborhood and have been going to the Muffuletta Cafe for many years now. The staff has always been good to us, with the exception of an aggressive loudmouth every once and awhile. We miss Mark. He was always filled with great stories, extra attention and an ability to make you feel special. The food has always been very, very good. A new menu is printed every day, so they can offer whatever foods are fresh and tasteful. They explain how their food is prepared so there are rarely surprises. I love their different wild mushroom dishes and their seafood. My 12 year old loves the Muffaletta Sandwich and the garlic served before the meal. Its a great place to meet friends and laugh over wine and dinner.
Hidden Date. Muffuletta is the hidden date location for my boyfriend and me. We go because the surrounding atmosphere reminds us of Europe. Every time I've gone, I've felt a little more "hidden" from the stress of daily life. Their food is great, service is phenominal, and the small town, romantic feel is perfect. And...even though they recommend that you make reservations, I have walked in multiple times and was seated promptly.
Simple and Elegant. Very nice little place hidden away in St Paul's St Anthony Park. Went there for lunch recently. Waitress was very nice and was honest about the menu and what she knew and didnt know(She informed us she was very new). Soups were above average. Salmon omlet was ok. Prices a little on the high side, but still ok. Was busy for lunch. Nice decor and layout. Many windows and a lot of sunshine which is reat for a summer lunch. I will definately go back
Great Place To Relax. The staff was very helpful with explaining the menu. The food was very good and had alot of flavor. The staff were very friendly . I look forward to go there again when the weather is nice and sit out on the patio. Its a nice place to have good food and relax with family and friends. The resturant is very nicely decorated .
Can't Get Enough. What a great place. The food was fantastic (Morocan Chicken) The atmosphere was great. Its like eating at a Bavarian Chalet. The Hostess and Wait staff were professional and kind. This is definitely a place you have to go to!!!
Just average. After reading the many positive reviews on Muffuletta, my boyfriend and I decided to try it for brunch. While the service was fine (didn't experience the horrible service many people stated), the food was just ok. And the decor didn't make up for the lackluster food. There's no ambiance, and the (much) older clientele didn't help much.
Go...try it. I visited Muffuletta Cafe for the first time last weekend. I went there on a date, and felt it was a good choice. The service was excellent. Our waters never reached half empty. I would definatley go there again.
Not Quite There. My husband and I went to Muffuletta Cafe for our first time. It was fine, but nothing spectacular. I really enjoyed the butternut squash and provolone quesadilla -- delicious!! I ordered the rack of lamb and my husband had the pork. He thought his was delicious. Mine was fine, but nothing exceptional. When I dine out, I like to have food that's better than what I can make at home and this just wasn't it. Not a bad meal, but nothing I'd need to go back for. The ambiance needs some help. We sat near the kitchen, which reminded me of a old coffee shop. Somewhat quaint, but not quite there.
Try it (again), you'll like it. I've been going to Muffuletta since 1983, on and off (more off), and gave it another try recently. What a great surprise! Everything is better: the food, the service, and the ambiance. If you, like me, were once put off by the "attitude," give it another try. It's changed...for the better.
Refreshing. We visited Muffuletta Cafe for the first time today. We took my father and his wife for their anniversary. We were very impressed with the decor.. it was a very airy-comfortable place to eat. The menu selection was one of the best I have ever seen. The service was a bit slow, but the waitress was very pleasant. The food was fantastic. My Grilled Salmon salad was superb. My wife had the egg plant sandwich and was very pleased. We will certainly return
