Butchers Butter was excellent, as was the calamari and short rib risotto.

Summary based on 1 Saturday night dinner: --available on Opentable --easy walk within downtown, if that's where you're staying --crowded, but sat with essentially no wait --extensive wine list, but seemed overpriced --salad very good, mains better than average. Typically large American sized portions --friendly service --ok prices for Tourist Centraal

We were in a hurry and came right at 7 PM which is usually peak. Our server Charissa understood and we were in an out in 45 minutes; amazing. Kathy had the Calamari, best ratio of meat to breading I have yet seen. I had the Sirloin and Prawns. Prawns were delicious, sauce was delicious and good thing, that was the driest steak I have had in a long time. I love the way to leave water on the table. The crayons on the table are a nice touch and we had a classic cute kid at the next table, so I will give atmosphere points. Our total before gratuity was 40.76.

The food at Mintrio Bistro was extremely disappointing. We ordered the Mediterranean Artichoke that was too difficult and tough to actually eat. We then ordered the artichoke Raviolli which was bland, and largely tasteless. The ambience was loud and it was impossible to get near the bar to get a pre-dinner drink on a weekend night. I would recommend finding a different place to eat.

Not worth the money. The food was decent but not worth what they charge and the service is rather poor. I had the new York steak with broccoli spears and polenta which was one of the special, the steak was cooked spot on but was a little on the bland side could have used at least a little salt and pepper, the broccoli spears had no flavor at all they were basically tossed on the grill and chard no seasoning at all not even some olive oil or butter, the polenta was good however this was one of the first times I have had. My wife had the boneless short rib with garlic mashed potatoes, Peas and pearl onion. The short rib had good flavor in my opinion had better then the new York steak and it was prepared well. The garlic mashed potatoes had good flavor and texture but all in all nothing special, however the peas and onions were very poor in flavor and cooked poorly taking away from the meal as a whole. The service was not the best our waitress was very abrupt and not very personable, she gave off the impression that we were an inconvenience. I only had water with dinner, however my wife ordered a glass of wine which didn't show up till after the food was served and was awkwardly placed on the table as she reached by my wife to place the glass as she ran by. All together the two meals with the one Glass of wine cost $88 less the tip. Which in our minds was rather expensive given the quality of the food and service. The food was not bad just was not worth the price. The meal would have been good for a $55-$60 price point and the wine which they charged $13 a glass was more like $8 glass. The meal total with tip and all came to within ten dollars of the meal we had at the restaurant 1833 for less then a quarter of the quality. If your looking for a great dinner worth your time and money skip this place and head over to 1833.

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL!!! THE BEST SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD! FOOD IS EXCELLENT ALSO, BUT I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE SERVICE. ON THE PHONE BEFORE I GOT THERE UNTIL I WALKED OUT THE DOOR, THE YOUNG PEOPLE WORKING THERE CERTAINLY MADE ME FEEL WELCOME AND WELL TAKEN CARE OF. I EVEN HAD TO TELL THE OWNER HOW I FELT. I WAS CERTAINLY IMPRESSED. MAYBE THEY COULD GO ON TV AND RELAY THEIR "RESTAURANT, AND HOW TO OPERATE ONE" ATTITUDE. WHAT A WELCOME CHANGE!!! MARIE MARLAR (LORI'S MOM)

Food was very disappointing. My dinner was not completely cooked. Waiter didn't seem to care about it. Unfortunate experience.
