As soon as you come inside the Loring Pasta Bar, you get swept up by the setting of old brick, exposed pipes and twinkle lights. If you're into revitalized warehouse environments and the steam punk decor, this place is a treat and the cool factor is off the charts!! After placing my order, I had to walk around to take...

This was a real nice restaurant with live music which was a real plus and very entertaining. The staff was friendly, but a bit slow. The menu overall had a good selection, but was intrigued by some of the menu items.

My Husband and I went for dinner after a show at Northrup. It was a really short walk. Have a nice happy hour every day of the week. They also had live entertainment. Service was wonderful. Food was really good! We would definitely go back again.

This venue will remain a favorite of ours as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in the Red Room upstairs. Returning here to meet friends, this night was not a disappointment. The atmosphere is eclectic but warm and inviting. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. It's a large room but intimate conversation was not difficult. Our food arrived promptly and... More

My daugher and I stumble upon the Pasta Bar while wandering around Dinkytown. It was an unexpected pleasure. Jake took such good care of us we stayed for one more drink. The live entertainment was also very good. We enjoyed our food very much. Our overall experience was awesome!

Found this gem during our anniversary trip. Great fun, fantastic dancers from beginners like us to experienced, all great to watch. Lynn and staff were very accommodating of my one-armed status from recent surgery. If they added light instruction either off to side dance area or before the general admission it would at the top of our fun meter! Thoroughly... More

Glad we found this salsa dance heaven. When dinner is finished the floor is cleared and the magic begins. Dance shoes optional with the floor a combination of hardwood and tile. Dj spinning a great atmosphere of fun. Can't wait to return.

We had a great family dinner here. The food was impressive as usual. Not huge portions , just right to fill us up. The service was top notch from valet to the waiter who helped us have a great night. His recommendations were spot on and his beer recommendations were perfect! The atmosphere makes this place a fun incredible night... More

I was really looking forward to eating here. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. The food was ok but the portions were small and the prices were high for what you were getting. Also, our server had too many tables so were were lacking in the service area. The server was very nice but he was able to cover the table.... More
