We were waited on by the bartender and were neglected most of the night. It took forever to get waited on, checked up on, exc. We had to walk to... More

My Husband and I (male couple) were visiting Duluth for the first time and was recommended to try this restaurant for our anniversary. It was the first time we've been in the restaurant of this type, with the slow spinning room. Our waitress, Cindy Lou, was one of the best, personable, and fun people we've encountered when dining out. She... More

We truly enjoyed out dinner last year, so this year, we decided to go back. the views were prettier this year after the big snow fall. Watched the lights at Bentleyville. It was a lot of fun again this year.

The atmosphere in this place is amazing! It's beautiful! The service, not so much. Our waitress kept walking around but always managed to walk on by us. Very rarely stopped in to check on us. The food was good, but very expensive!! $10 for a side salad. . . I got the stuffed meatloaf and puréed potatoes, absolutely delicious! My... More

We ordered risotto and osso bucco along with a bottle of wine. The food is moderate. It is fine but not spectacular. The risotto was tasty but taste like soft rice mixed with cheese than risotto. I had better risotto before this. The view in the restaurant is pretty and its atmosphere is relax and romantic. It is a revolving... More

Disappointed in service and food. Great view though. Food was blah and expensive. Our waitress was crabby and kept rushing us through our meal. Just disappointing. Will choose elsewhere next time.

My husband and I had our final dinner of our trip at JJ Astor atop the Radisson hotel. The restaurant rotates 360° for a view of the city and Lake Superior. Both of our meals were outstanding. My only regret was that we didn't have desert. The restaurant was low lit and not at all noisy( unlike many restaurants unfortunately... More

so, off season - end of september. We stayed in the hotel and always like to eat and drink close to the hotel (and, as for the Radisson, room 1515 is wonderful). We like to have a cocktail hour around 6pm to figure out what we do each day. An excellent manhattan at the bar with a very good bartender... More
