About This Place

Other Details
We are conveniently located in downtown St. Paul just 1 1/2 blocks west of the Xcel Energy Center on West 7th Street. Free parking is available for our guests. The original cafe was a small diner serving only breakfast and lunch. Famous for its Cajun Breakfast and Stuffed French toast, the Downtowner was and still is one of St. Paul’s favorite neighborhood restaurants. After extensive renovation the new Downtowner, now known as the Downtowner Woodfire Grill, re-opened its doors in August 2001. With an open floor plan, water fountains in the bar and three fire places, the Downtowner offers a charming atmosphere. The Downtowner Woodfire Grill still serves its fabulous breakfasts and lunches. A unique and exquisite dinner menu was added that is as exceptional as the restaurant renovation itself.The menu is considered American Bistro with a Persian touch. The kitchen is open to the dining room; you can watch as your entree is being prepared. The Downtowner specializes in daily fresh seafood specials and fire roasted meats cooked on an oak-burning wood-fire grill using an ancient Persian cooking style.

My wife and I go here every 3 or 4 weeks and find it to be one of the "best restaurants" in the twin city area for many reasons. For one thing it's not that expensive. The food is great and the...

I go here every now and then, and I discovered the happy hour most recently. It is amazing with 3 dollar martinis and tap beers, as well as, 3 dollar personal gourmet pizzas. I only knocked off a...

Went on Valentines Day which wouldn't be my first choice of days to dine anywhere, but I was in from out of town and needed a place to eat. Food was OK, nothing special at all though really. I...
