Impressed! – It was a great experience. The staff was well versed in the menu and the extensive wine list. The lounge area is a great place for a drink and appetizers. Predisposed to not like calamari, I was converted by their deliciously prepared version. Someone in kitchen is very talented. The menu options were carefully thought out and the dinner was excellent. If you are looking for a burger and a bud you'll be disappointed, but if you want a superb dinner in a great atmosphere give this place a try.
Excellent food in a great space – Sapor offers a menu that is both comforting and eclectic. My favorite entre is the wasabi salmon served on top of a bed of potatoes and mixed veggies. Outstanding taste combinations abound on the menu. They also have some of the tastiest calimari in town. This is probably not the place for anyone with boring tastes that wants simple steak and potatoes, but it is for anyone that enjoys creative and delicious food. The service is always pleasant and the space is big, warm and inviting. We go here often, and I can't wait to get back again. Highly recommended.
Vertical Food in Minneapolis – Initially the service was slow, but our waiter made up for it with wit and knowledge of the food. We ordered two appetizers. The first was a lamb special for the night and it was fantastic. A little morsel of lamb perched on stacks of delicate phyllo with black beans paste holding it all together. The second, an orange flower salad, had great dressing, but the greens were bitter. The entree we selected first was sold out, but the lamb that we ended up with was very good. We had a fabulous little creme brulee topped with an orange flower mousse for desert. Top all that off with a great bottle of wine and an digestif near to Port (called Monastrell) and we had a great night of food.
Hurry!! – Sapor was everything we expected and more. The restaurant is beautiful and we never felt hurried. I was entertaining a large group from out of town, some from Boston. They raved about the quality too. One word of caution, if you cab it there from a hotel or other venue, remember to ask them to call for a cab shortly before you are ready to leave. Our cabbies don't even know Sapor is there yet and definitely do not cruise for fares in the immediate neighborhood.
Northside delight... – Sapor is casual, eclectic dining at it's best in the Twin Cities. After work, Jon and I decided to have a bite. I drive by Sapor everyday on my way to work and have always wanted to try it. The moment I walked in the door i was greeted with smiles and hellos from the bartender and hostest. I sat to wait and had a glass of the featured zin. Ordered some tapas and after Jon had arrived, made our way to the patio. The tapas were spicy and got me appetized. My arctic char special and Jon's aged beef were spectacular. The wine list was short and sweet with some exotic listings. The service was above satisfactory and ambience fun and striking. Try it.
One of the Cities Finest! – Sapor has become one of our favorite Mpls restaurants since it first opened its doors. The ambience, the flavor of the food, the extensive wine and beer offerings and the attentive wait staff make us keep on coming back. We can honestly say that there hasn't been a dish we haven't liked ... the calamari is excellent; the salmon entree can't be beat ... and the desserts are wonderful - just the right touch to end the night.
