Sophisticated fixture for seasonal, contemporary American cuisine plus fixed-price wine dinners.- Google
"Seems to be something for everyone regardless of food preferences."
"The warm spinach salad was soupy with dressing and limp."

My husband and I have been dining at the quiet intimate little piece of heaven for many years. With the many ethic and great dining in Iowa City area, it continues to one of our long time favorites. Seems to be something for everyone regardless of food preferences. Do not miss trying one of Iowa City's great dining experiences.

i would only suggest this place for wine pairing dinners (special occasions/events) their normal menu is nothing i'd crave for or rave about. regular menu is overpriced for iowa city.

we had visited Linn Street Cafe before and were delighted so wanted the same experience but were sorely disappointed. The ambiance is intimate, the wine list interesting and the service superb but the food left a sour taste. The warm spinach salad was soupy with dressing and limp. The only vegetarian entree option was mac and cheese which I prepare better at home by doctoring up Annie's Mac n Cheese. The $25 seared scallops were salty. The bread was warm but soft, doughy and white - we were hoping for something more substantial. The desserts were exquisite - the pear brandy bread pudding and pumpkin cheesecake with praline crust - yum. Will we give them another chance? Hard to say with a $115.00 bill - I expect much more.
