Checked in at 3, walked around town and decided to go back to the hotel and have a coctail at Bank, sat up at the bar, me and my fiance, asked for a drink menu, bartender kinda gave us a up and down look and brought a menu, we sat there for 10 minutes and he never returned, went on... More

We ate breakfast here because it was included in our room rate......little did we know we'd have to get that fixed after leaving the hotel. The food was ok, nothing wrong with it, but no wow factor either. There didn't appear to be enough staff working for the size of the restaurant so service was slower than you would expect.

We had breakfast here before going to the Viking game. We had a reservation and arrived 10 minutes early to a virtually empty restaurant yet the hostess asked us if we could wait until our reservation time and gave us some menus to look at. When we came back at our reservation time she put us off again to do... More

A beautiful restaurant in a restored bank building. I was with a midsize business group, that had a special menu. I had the salmon with carrots. The salmon was slightly over cooked, but the carrots were very overcooked, and frankly tasteless. The service was very good and our server was exceptionally knowledgeable about the facility.

The Bank Restaurant has a better reputation than their performance. The food was ordinary, the service was inattentive and overall, it was disappointing.

I've eaten at the Bank Restaurant a number of times because of the convenience, but every time I feel the same way after my meal. The food and the service are very average. I have no specific major complaints but the service (even when they are not crowded) is consistently slow and/or halting and nothing about the food is outstanding... More

The breakfast buffet had average offerings. The scrambled eggs were very dry and the bacon was fatty and chewy.

The Westin Minneapolis is a recent addition to the Westin "menu". I'm figuring the property opened in 2008 after a HUGE and impressive renovation of the old Farmers and Mechanics Bank. Hence the name of the superlative restaurant "BANK". I enjoyed the pan fried walleye and the quiet and impressive surroundings of the very old bank. Matthew (our wait staff)... More

Very nice breakfast buffet. The staff is helpful and kind. Very quick to pick up from you mid-chew. I think they could give people a bit more space.
