Great for a date night. We are both foodies, and the eccentric menu suited us perfectly.

The Happy Gnome is one of my family's favorite dining spots in St. Paul. It is conveniently located, easy to find and has a large parking lot which is always useful The Cities. The menu is very creative--up scale food at reasonable prices--with an emphasis on fresh and seasonal ingredients. The beer menu is extensive and they have a nice selection of wine as well. We ate upstairs this time and...

We had a great time! Went for an early valentines dinner and it was excellent. Server was timely and friendly, the drinks were delicious, and the food was all fantastic (leftovers reheated well). Wanted to eat all the things!

My husband enjoyed his beet salad, my turkey egg dish on Surley bread was very large, but reheating the leftovers was a messy mess and ended up being toss out. One person in our party had a hard time finding something "not to spicy". This pub...
