The architectural design and aesthetic appeal of 20.21 are very in line with other Wolfgang restaurants (Spago, red seven) but, unfortunately, that's where the dining experience ends. The menu is limited and isn't kept up to date online.

Excellent food with a great view of the city skyline. 2021 offers a unique menu with great service. It is located in the Walker Art Center and is not open on Mondays. Call and make your reservation for your next date night!

The view of the city, the restaurant, the plates of flavorful food and even the staff and diners are beautiful, too. YUM.

Pros: World class Asian-Modern Fusion Cuisine, breathtaking view, ambience, service at the amazing Walker Art Center. Great Parking.

Cons: None.

The food is pretty good. However, it's not meaningfully better than the food at the Rainbow or the Seafood Palace on Nicollet ave (in fact, it might be worse). I have had whole fish at those places that were at least as tasty, and certainly about half the price. (the decor and service at those places is also kind of better.) Service was ok. Nice guy, but a bit inattentive. Didn't really care though, since i was with great company. Window is very cool, but not big enough to afford everyone in the restaurant a great view. I had a great view, so i can't complain, but it would be worth waiting for a different table if you weren't near it, since the alternative is a stark white wall. That leads me to what I really don't understand about the place: the decor. The place screams corporate cafeteria. The carpet is ugly. The chairs are like from a waiting room at an airport, and the splotches of color are just sort of cheesy and out of place. also, the lighting is totally underwhelming, especially given some of the architectural interest in the room (plus, the bar is lit up with basic rope lighting which can be bought at lowes for like $3/yard. The ceiling is also very low. It's an awkward space. For it to be as expensive as it is, and for it to be in such a highly regarded museum, which itself is something of an architectural and design marvel, i found the decor to be completely unimpressive (and somewhat disappointing) and without charm or character. Certainly not the decor of a place with $30+ entrees. This is especially troubling since most of its competition are beautiful spaces (e.g., cosmos, chambers kitchen, la belle vie across the street). One other thing -- the kitchen is totally exposed, which normally is cool, but here just resulted in it making the room very hot and imparting a sort of fried food smell. I think this restaurant has some potential, since the food is pretty tasty, but I think they need to rethink it a bit.

Pros: tasty food; cool view if you are right by the window

Cons: Ugly decor, only decent service.

I have eaten here several times, for both romantic occasions with my wife and business meals. They always exceed my expectations. Fantastic food and service that is the best in the twin cities. I have eaten almost every entree on the menu although it does change and my favorite (Miso Sake Butterfish) is now some other type of fish. With the ButterFish it is quite possibly one of my favorite all time meals. So if you see it, get it. This is one of the only restaurants that I have ever tipped the waiters 30% because I felt like we had our own personal server even though he had a couple other tables. The chefs in town could learn a lot from Wolfgang on how to run a restaurant. This restaurant is in my top 2 in town, right there with 112. The desserts are also to die for so make sure you leave room. I have tried them all but my favorite is the tres leches, which is always the first dessert I try at a restaurant if they have it. Theirs may be my favorite in the world.

Pros: Food, Ambience, Service, Tres Leches, ButterFish

Cons: This place makes so many other Twin Cities fine dining restaurants look bad

Given the quality of the food we had, I would say this is about 50% overpriced ($150 for 2, before tip and with one beer). The steak tasted watery, potatoes gratin were missing their blue cheese flavor and creme brulee was average. Add to that a fried smell from the kitchen and I wasn't overly impressed; the view would also be much better if they took the time to keep the glass clean.

At the suggestion of the waiter, we ordered 2 appetizers and a dinner entree to share (just two of us for dinner) to "experience the flavors of the restaurant". Not only were the appetizers and entree expensive, they were very small in size. We spent over a $100 for dinner only to walk away hungry...we find this ridiculous. Service was fine, the downtown...more like the Basilica view was also overrated. There are much better options in and around town.

I have been to 20.21 three times: for appetizers, dinner, and brunch. Each time has been more disappointing. The food is OK but the service is atrocious. The last time I went with four friends, we left cash and split the rest on 2 credit cards. They incorrectly billed the ENTIRE amount to one card even though the slip I signed said they only charged 1/4 of the bill. I didn't see their error until I double checked my bill statement and then it took two calls to their manager before it was fixed (and no offer of a special discount for the next trip, which most restaurants would do). The time before that, they forgot to return my credit card I had to track down our waiter to find it. If you go here, save your receipts until the final charge appears on your account! Instead of 20.21, head across the street to La Belle Vie - they have amazing food, amazing service, and a bar menu for those that don't want to splurge.

Cons: Service, Service, Overpriced, Service

What is happening at this restaurant? The food used to be exciting, maybe the lack of change is growing old? It seems as though they either have new management monthly or they do not have any management? We used to visit every couple of weeks, but Wolfgang has warn out his charm with us. The potstickers are no better than any chinese take out, and much pricier, the spring rolls equally bland. There are some great entrees, but the whole experience is just not consistent. Good Luck!

We truly enjoyed this fine addition the the Minneapolis food scene back in it's hay day, great space and view, the Puck dining experience, and exceptional service...however, we left this Friday evening wondering if we would indeed be back. Sure, perhaps the food is the same, I say not as appealing now as the menu has become stayed..and yes the room is still loud..thats OK we grew to overlook that chaos..but tonights dinner service was way out the waters by any standard.

Our server seemed completely indifferent as to our what we were expecting..and soon found wishing for...knowledge, grace, charm, and PROPER service, rather than the automated coldness that we recieved. We still hark back to your opening days..you had a fine staff on hand. One gentleman server in particular...Dennis, was outstanding..and made each experience the most it could possibly be..without fail. So we ask you Wolfgang, fully realizing that one component enhances the other, please bring back your service professionals and standards and utilize the others in perhaps your mall/airport settings. Perfectly executed dinner service may even cause one to believe that this room is worth a visit.

The restaurant is a little odd...cafeteria-style chairs, long narrow room, pretty noisy--but a wall of windows over looking the cathedral. We got drinks quickly at the bar, and our server was AWESOME. She was very attentive to our large group, and made helpful suggestions on wine, cocktails and food. The potstickers and ahi tuna appetizers were amazing. The duck was very good, and the lobster rissoto was incredible! We all left fat and happy!

I met a friend for brunch and arrived early to have an incredible view of Minneapolis at a window-side seat. A mimosa, bellini or orange juice were included in the rather hefty price. There was a nice variety of the usual egg dishes, waffles and sides with two specials thrown into the mix. They were nice to try, but I don't generally crave fish on a Sunday morning (or any morning for that matter). Good selection of desserts that go nicely with their excellent cup of bottomless coffee. Atmosphere was great, the weight staff was friendly and attentive. It's rather quiet so it may not be the place to share stories of the previous night's exploits. Great place to bring a friend from out of town; the good food and beautiful surroundings are a nice treat.

Very small dining area with not much to look at unless you are in the window - although it doesn't matter when the food is this good. (Almost like sitting in an eat-in galley kitchen). Food has a great new new take on Asian flavors. Have had the miso salmon a couple of times which is excellent the first time, too salty the second. Try the beet and goat cheese salad/starter and don't miss the signature chocolate cube and cherry (Spoonbridge & Cherry dessert) -it's fabulous and beautiful. Great place to bring a group, with extremely attentive service.

20.21 - although not the newest restaurant in town, is still a favorite! The food is ALWAYS amazing and the service is great! Go with a group or on a date! Always request to be by the windows if possible - the best table is the large round table right by the window - and the views of the city are best at night.

We had 6 travelled / sophisticated palates at dinner and all were very satisfied. Service was truly excellent with a visit from Chef Scott to round off a great wait staff. One of the best items was complimentary app from the kitchen, a stunner of a Sushi grade Tuna mixture encircled by a homemade peppered ice cream cone styled cracker wrap. For the most part we stayed with the very fresh fish, both Asian Styled and the fab Butter fish. The Short Ribs melted in your mouth, but not quite as flavorful as our friends at D'Amico's. Desserts, the chocolate cherry spoon and fruit tarts were also quite tasty.

20.21...All the hype and nothing to back it up. It was so awful to look at- initially, I thought this must not be the right place!? It looks like a tiny cafeteria in an art gallery, but without any artistic qualities. "You've got to be kidding Wolfgang! Stick with the pizza!" A 20 or 21 on an 100 point scale.

I've been there for brunch and have already planned on attending again--for $25 it is one of the best brunches you can get in town, not to mention the great mimosas and peach bellinis. The food is consistently prepared using good quality ingredients with an asian focus--the chicken chinois salad is fabulous and freshly prepared. It's also a signature item. If you're looking for comfortable chairs (which shouldn't be the first and foremost concern for any foodie), this isn't your place--but there isn't a bad view in the house. Window table or not, the setting is intimate and the service is splendid. I don't try places twice unless they are great the first time around--this place only makes the Twin Cities look better in a time when chain restaurants are ruining the restaurant scene.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience at 20.21. The food was delicious (try the butterfish!) and the service was excellent. Our waitress was extremely attentive. We were a little early for our reservation and much to my surprise they seated us right away. The tables and chairs, and the ambience in general, was okay, but not bad (it's a little crowded, the decor is sparse), but that was completely ignored when the food started to come. Everything I put in my mouth, including the water - seriously, was top-notch. It's an expensive treat, but totally worth it.

I thought that this would be a great place to spend our Valentines Day (considering I am out of town the following week). Upon our arrival we were immediately greeted which was the highlight of the experience. I had made a reservation in advance to be seated next to the window. When I asked if this request had been met, the Maitre'd responded that they cannot accommodate such requests and that "these tables are to accommodate for those that have a party of four". The chairs felt similar to a high school cafeteria. I stepped away and once again politely asked if we could be seated at the table behind us which was not being used. She responded "We're sorry but we cannot do that for you". I responded by leaving. To those that expect service, please look elsewhere.

Room had a wonderful view at night, but was uncomfortably loud. Lettuce cups were reminiscent of PF Chang. Thai curry was Minnesota mild. Service and staff were attentive and inobtrusive.

The ambience was so-so, but the food was fabulous. The crispy duck was cooked tender and crispy, though I found the accompanying noodles too salty and had it replaced with jasmine rice. Calamari salad with thai chili sauce was flavorful and a great combination of textures.

Lori, our server, was the perfect combination of attentive, helpful and non-obtrusive, and made me feel totally attended too. Wonderful. I'll be back the next time I'm in Minneapolis.

I went there for my birthday with a large group of friends so we were sat at "the" table with the view of the city. That alone was amazing. The server was helpfull with our order, we told her what we wanted and she ordered the appropriate amount. We had the perfect amount of food. Everything was delicious especially the butterfish,lettuce cups and tuna tartar. I would go back in a heartbeat. All of my expectations were met. I did'nt find the price that expensive all 5 couples walked away paying about 100 dollars that included several drinks per couple( I would have been okay paying more.).Excellent restaurant !

I read all the reviews prior to going to dinner, and given that the last few were negative I was weary. However...the food was truly amazing. I highly recommend the potstickers, Butterfish (the best fish I have eaten in a very long time), and desserts (Fondant and Cherry Spoon Chocolate delight). Our waitress was excellent, and very helpful when we asked her what she recommended on the menu. The ambience is lacking, but we were there for the food. Ambience would not keep me away from going back for another dinner.

I read the reviews before our 9 pm reservation on Friday night and now I see they are all true - the food is not bad, but this place overhyped. (All of the employees seem a little overly impressed with themselves for what this place is...) The best part of the entire experience is the decor/ambience. Our server had good intentions but service was noticably slow and unattentive. The family style serving is a little awkward too. For a party of 2 she recommended 3 plates total and we were thankful we ordered 4. Hamachi was really subtle and unremarkable, steak tartare was good and presented well, thai seafood red curry ok, and the mongolian pork chops were disappointing. At least the check wasn't too offensive. We skipped desert and went up to Sebastian Joe's.

Went there for brunch. Had a reservation and was on time but still have to wait 10 minutes for our table. Our server spill water on our table and never came to clean it. Finish our meal and went to the desert table and nobody clean our table. Coffee was included but never offered. I don't like went the server is too personal but I don't like to be ignored.

20.21 could be a top shelf contender but misses on a couple of beats. The ambiance feels a little cheap in the daylight but comes into its own at sunset or later. If the weather is permits, head for the patio. Food presentation was 5 star but taste underpowered for a restaurant of this caliber. The calamari salad was the best part of the evening. The thai pad noodles and roasted pork chop had weak flavors at best. The creme brulee while presented well, was nothing special. Our server came to the table a number of times with an arm load of dirty dishes, come on. She showed us very little personal attention. Upon being seated we were brought a small dish with szechwan green beans. Nice thought but an overcooked poorly presented intro dish did not set my expectations too high. Please bring this place to a higher level.

If the weather is permits, head for the patio. Food presentation was 5 star but taste underpowered for a restaurant of this caliber. The calamari salad was the best part of the evening. The thai pad noodles and roasted pork chop had weak flavors at best. The creme brulee while presented well, was nothing special. Our server came to the table a number of times with an arm load of dirty dishes, come on. She showed us very little personal attention. Upon being seated we were brought a small dish with szechwan green beans. Nice thought but an overcooked poorly presented intro dish did not set my expectations too high. Please bring this place to a higher level.

Pros: ambiance at night, patio, presentation

Cons: food, flavor, service

We went here for our anniversary expecting that we were going to spend a little money for the quality of food we had heard of. The dinner was FABULOUS! The setting, service and presentation could not have been better. The bill was NOT outrageous for the amazing dinner and portions we received. We seriously agreed it was the best meal we had had in our whole lives. Only thing to beware of is the high priced bar drinks. That bill was almost 1/3 of the cost of dinner - for 2 drinks. All in all, an amazing place to visit! I have never experienced such great service at a restraunt! I highly recommend a visit!

Recently moved here from Los Angeles, which is over saturated with the Wolfgang Puck empire. I was resistant to trying this place...but I can't DENY IT. The food is superb, the setting in the museum is really beautiful, but it is very loud, so don't come if you need to have an important conversation. The sashimi was smooth as butter, the miso marinated fish was delicious. Presentation, service, food quality. The restaurant is seriously top notch.

I went with my brother and sister, just to try something new. It was the best food I have ever had. It was expensive but well worth it. I had the chicken and it was excellent. The server always brings out a free sample from the chef, which was a fun surprise. The only thing I had a problem with was the noice. Try getting a table by the window, it is very small and packed together, so anything by the wall will give you a little bit more privacy. I never got to go outside but I'm sure those would be great seats too. I tried to get reservations but couldn't, but we went anyway and got seated right away.

Make a reservation, now! :)

My husband and I have dined at numerous Puck restaurants and the new Minneapolis 20.21 certainly did not disappoint. The food was outstanding and also a suberb value -- we were impressed with how generous the portions were. Everything was done impeccably and presented with equal panache -- spicy caramely roasted green beans with sesame, a melt -in-your mouth butterfish (please DO NOT ever take this off the menu!!), and a wonderful flat-iron steak with Schezuan sauce and mushrooms. The side dishes were interesting as well -- we loved a vegetable saute of shitakes, asparagus, bok choy, long beans and ever so thinly sliced and carmalized onions. Wow!

The only thing we'd love to see is additional wild, eco-friendly fish like wild Alaskan salmon and halibut, and also a few great organic wines.

Great sashimi cones!!!!

We'll be back!

Wolfgang Puck's "20.21" at the Walker Art Center is a treat. Fabulous food, they recommend serving it family style, surpasses all the hype. The room with its terrific view of downtown, the Basilica, the Sculpture Garden and Loring Park, is minimalist chic. The servings are large and the service terrific. Surprisingly, the prices are decent. No problem getting a fine meal including wine for $30 each. Don't leave without trying their signature desert, Cube and Spoon and Cherry in honor of the Cherry and Spoonbridge scultpure in the garden.
