I didn’t know what to expect, the restaurant was picked by friends. It started off well, when the wait staff was very happy and attentive. I started with the Kadejan farm chicken liver pate. It was OK, nothing spectacular. I have a rule that I...More

Spoonriver is a great place! They offer something for everyone, including vegetarian and vegan. Try the Fig and Orange Scone - it’s light and airy and a great opener.

We were new to being vegans so our waiter made it easy, and delicious. Creative dishes, freshly prepared. Next to the Guthrie Theater, perfect for pre-performance meal. HIghly recommended if you like to try new things.

While in town for a family wedding, a group of 12 of us had lunch at Spoonriver. The menu is very interesting. It clearly is dedicated to vegan and gluten free dining, although, there are plenty of items for everyone. My wife had the omelet...More
