I had very high expectations for Seven Steakhouse
. Unfortunately, it did not quite live up to them. I’m certainly not saying it was awful – the taster ordered an awesome steak that was absolutely delightful. The meat was perfect, done to perfection and the honey bourbon sauce with crab was the icing on the cake…or the steak I should say! I didn’t post any pictures because, let’s be real, meat is not very pretty.
Onto the other eats:
Beef Carpaccio arugula, parmigiano reggiano, extra virgin olive oil & sea salt
This was pretty good, I think the arugula was my favorite part though! A fun dish to try for sure!
Spicy Tuna Roll tuna, chili, oil, japanese mayo, leaf lettuce, kaiware, avocado & asparagus
Usually spicy tuna rolls are some of my favorites! This one just wasn’t very spicy and/or flavorful so I was a little disappointed. Probably not the best place to get sushi, but they had a whole sushi menu so I thought I was set… and WHY does no place in Minneapolis use brown rice?!?! If anyone knows of sushi with brown rice in Minneapolis PLEASE fill me in!
Sashimi Salad sashimi over seaweed and cucumber salad
This salad was a nice break from the white rice rolls but I think I was expecting the seaweed salad to be a lot more flavorful than it was. It actually came out without the seaweed salad initially so I sent it back because that was half of the reason why this salad sounded good to me. As for the cucumbers? They were no where to be found. It was however beautifully presented and obviously very healthy – I just needed a little more flavor!
The service? Meh. That is what really did it for me. All around service was nothing impressive and when the food is pricey I definitely expect exceptional service.
Would I go back? Not immediately, but I would certainly give it another shot. They have a nice roof-top patio which is always fun and it is in walking distance from the apt – just go for the steak, not the sushi.
Question for you: When you have a not-so-great experience at a restaurant do you ever go back?
