Awesome patio. Pleasant Servers/Wait Staff. Awesome ambiance. We stopped here for dessert and drinks after dinner, and wish we would have chosen here for dinner too. Their outdoor patio was perfect.

W.A's patio is probably the most beautiful in the state. The food was good and the service professional albeit a bit slow. Great place for relaxing conversations.

This is by far my favorite spot for outdoor dining in St. Paul. The umbrellas, flowers, couches, and climbing vines provide the perfect backdrop for enjoying great food and drink.

This is a terrific place to meet friends for drinks. The bartenders are always great and historic downstairs is charming and well worn.
