Las Mojarras
Short story: Best Mexican place I've been to in Minnesota.I feel terrible for not visiting Las Mojarras sooner. Well, not THAT terrible because I haven't been working; only went there last night because a friend owed me a drink and that was the closest place. We were there during dinner hours - 6 pm to 8 pm - and in all that time only one other table came in.Highlight: Absolutely the best Sopa Azteca I've ever, ever, EVER had. Even though my lips were burning, I couldn't stop eating it. My friend had a spoonful and said it raised her core temperature two degrees. But it's not too spicy. It is spicy, but it's mostly flavorful and tangy.Food: We had an appetizer of some kind of fish tacos (I can't remember what they called it) with a really spicy red sauce, fresh veggies, beans, sour cream, and Mexican cheese. My friend had the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, which she said was delicious. Everything on the menu looked delicious - it took us forever to decide!Drinks: Very limited wine selection, but it was only $3/glass or $11/bottle and very drinkable - which is outstanding at those prices. I think my margarita was made from a mix. I tried to ask about it, but he waitress didn't understand enough English and thought I was asking about flavored margaritas - which they don't have, which I consider a plus. Anyway, it was either very good for a mix margarita, or so-so for a scratch margarita, I'm not sure which.Atmosphere: It's hard to judge the atmosphere of an empty restaurant. I liked the decor a lot. They kept the interesting paint jobs from two restaurants ago on the walls and ceiling and added tropical fish murals on some walls. There's a tropical fish tank that could be better-placed. The music was not too loud, which I'm starting to think of as an extreme rarity.Service: Our waitress tried hard, she really did, but without her being able to understand us, it was frustrating. The menu was entirely in English, so it was kind of odd to have a non-speaking waitress. But she did make a good sales pitch for the special and told us all her favorite dishes.Price: Extremely low for the quality, but high for this neighborhood. Most entrees were under $20 but the house specialties were mostly $20-$30. As I mentioned, the wine was unbelievably cheap and good for the price. My soup was about $7. I would have paid a helluva lot more. My friend's enchiladas (a platter with beans and rice and all that) was about $12, I believe.

Ginger Hop Restaurant
My sorority chooses a different place to dine for an annual event. This year one of my sorors recommended Ginger Hop. What a great choice. This was the first time for most of us and by the end of the meal we were all in agreement that we would be coming back either as a group or other social situation. We each ordered something different then shared around the table. The portions were more than adequate for each of us which made sharing a great thing to do. I had the fried spring rolls for an appetizer. They were wonderful. I had stopped ordering eggrolls when I eat out because none compared to the handmade eggrolls my girlfriend makes. Ginger Hop's eggrolls are comprable. Crispy and flavorful. I no longer have to wait for my girlfriend to feel like making eggrolls. I like my food spicy so I had the General Tsiang Chicken. It had the right amount of heat and the chicken was tender and moist. I'll certainly go again and introduce some other friends to this great dining experience.

Dave & Buster's
We were in Dave and Busters 11/6 during the vikings game. There was a large sign that said 1/2 price appetizers during football game. I asked our waiter which apps were half price and he picked up the sign on the table and pointed out the list of 1/2 price apps. We each ordered one from that list. We were charged full price and when we questioned it our waiter immediately apologized and said he would speak to the manager, Michelle. She said we would have to pay full price. If you go in there be aware that is the kind of customer service they expect of there leadership team. The food was very good but I would be very careful about there advertising. It was a football game and we did ask our waiter and this is the sign that was on the table. Michelle thought it was worth 8.00 to leave a very poor impression.

CRAVE American Kitchen & Sushi Bar
My third visit to Crave and it gets better each time... I liked them on Facebook and received notification that they have a Live Jazz performance between 7pm-10pm on Thursdays just outside of their restaurant where guests can sit, have drinks, appetizers, and/or dinner. The food, drinks, my waiter- Stevie, and Jazz Performance were Impeccable. My favorite Crave appetizer is the Edamame Cream Cheese Wontons- Absolutely Delicious!!! I tried this during a Crave Tasting in June and could not resist ordering this dish during my visit.

Ginger Hop Restaurant
Went for dinner w. 2 friends. Loved the ambience- upscale and trendy. Menu was Asian fusion- fresh and inspiring. Shared the spicy ceviche with friends, very flavorful, fresh, exciting. I had a yellow curry dish with tofu and vegetables on rice- again, inspiring, great spices and seasoning. Service was good- but the waiter had to come back and ask twice to verify what we had ordered, a result of not having written things down when we started to order. Facilities clean. Would love to return- wanted to try friends' dishes.

Pannekoeken Huis
The pannekoenkens are very good in both main dish and dessert styles. All their other food is delicious too, especially the Split Pea soup w/sausage! Service is quick and friendly. Decor is a nice Dutch style without being overdone. They have a nice patio too. The bacon Pannekoeken was awesome! So was the strawberry-rhubarb! The Banana Cream was good too. So many choices! They are very filling!! I heartily recommend the Pannekoeken Huis!!

Royal Orchid The Best Thai Food
I went to the Royal Orchid after seeing that the restaurant had high Yelp reviews and I was not disappointed.My party of 6 ordered family style, and so I ended up trying 7 different dishes (6 would have been the right amount, but we got greedy). Every dish we ordered was great, and we especially liked the red and green curry dishes, the pad thai, and a coconut dish that I can not remember the name of (oops). I cannot wait to go again.

The Cheesecake Factory
Great food but very busy. There isn't much room in the entry for customers to wait for a table so we went out into the mall to shop during part of our 45 minute wait. I love the orange chicken and many of their salads. The menu is huge and includes everything from breakfast food to dessert. Of course the best part is the cheesecake! I don't have a favorite flavor but every variety I've tried is fantastic!

TGI Fridays
Went to Friday's with a group of 5 girls and manager Jason asked what we were celebrating. I explained my son was in ICU at north memorial and we were just taking a break. He immediately told us he was gonna send food with us "on the house". Taylor the waitress was wonderful. Such a kind gesture from someone who didn't know me from atom. Best service ever!!!! And food was great!
