Named “Best French Restaurant, populist vote” by Mpls St. Paul Magazine, Barbette has also received "best of's" from local press for its late night dining, desserts, wine list, date spot, music, and, of course, those French fries that accompany the steak frites. We use local and organic ingredients as often as possible, presenting beautiful food in a casual, eclectic, bistro atmosphere. Says Star Tribune reviewer Rick Nelson: "I reveled in a meal that tasted far more expensive than the final tab suggested..." and, " a restaurant that can be enjoyed by diners of all ages." Tasting menus are available upon request with prior notice, and if you have any special dietary needs we are happy to accommodate when possible. We serve grass-fed beef, free-range organic pork, free-range organic chicken and eggs, all locally sourced. We pay close attention to the sourcing of our seafood.
