We did have a wonderful day, and the Campus Club staff were very attentive and helpful. We also receive many comments from our guests about how much they liked the venue.

We were very pleased with the event--thank you! You and your staff were great to work with--everyone from Jane who I met with first to all the folks who worked the event day of. People were very enthusiastic about the food--especially the bruschetta appetizer. We will definitely work with you again!

The party was wonderful, the food terrific, and all your help greatly
appreciated. The guest of honor was well and truly surprised and touched.

I wanted to thank you and the staff for everything. The day was everything we had hoped for and more. I can't say enough for how attentive the staff was and how much the attention to detail showed through. We greatly enjoyed our day and thank you so much! From a bride.

I just wanted to send this note of thanks to you and all who helped to make our reception such a delight. There were many compliments on the food, which was delicious - please convey our gratitude to the Chefs. I especially want Nick who was on duty at the desk and saved our cupcakes from a complete fiasco. The service was flawless. From a bride's mother.

The Friday event was a big success -- please let chef Beth know that "everyone
loved the menu" and the event. CC staff all worked great. We'll be back!

We hosted our reception at the Campus Club, and could not be happier with the way that everything turned out. Our contact at the Campus Club, was incredibly helpful throughout the process. She was willing to offer advice when we needed it and was incredibly flexible and accommodating as we went through the planning process. The evening of the reception itself was incredible, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful at every turn. The food was hands-down some of the best I've ever had. Further, my wife has 15+ severe food allergies and the Campus Club was able to alter one of their menu's dishes for her and other vegetarians at the reception. The facility itself is gorgeous, from wonderful views of the Minneapolis skyline to an incredible terrace to a separate bar/lounge for those looking to take a break from dancing. All in all, this is an incredible venue with marvelous staff; we feel so fortunate to have hosted our reception here.

Our event was wonderful-- the Campus Club Staff was outstanding! I know there were multiple events going on, but all our needs were met and they were friendly and professional! We look forward to holding future events there!

Last nights event in the Dale Shepard Room was a smashing success. The dinner was fresh and delicious. The staff was responsive to our every whim.The guests were impressed and one person remarked that they couldn't remember a finer meal at book event. The chef took in account the guest of honor's dietary needs. She wished to communicate her gratitude as she understood that this was not an easy task. At 9:30, we had to chase everyone out pleading the early commitments in the morning. No one wanted the night to end.

On behalf of the Undergraduate Digital Tech Grant Luncheon, we'd like to say thank you for the great service and excellent food. Thanks also to the attentive staff and the great planning help from your Events Office.Yes, this was our last meeting for this year. We will certainly want to book again for next year.

We very much value having our meetings at the Campus Club.

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful service and menu that we enjoyed at the campus club! Everybody was full of praise!


Yes, it was a great success!! Great service, excellent food, perfect set-up, equipment worked well. Etc. ALL GOOD!!! The chicken was tasty and tender, the polenta/vegetable rag-out REALLY delicious, the quinoa pilaf w/ chick peas really a great addition, broccoli very nicely cooked. The mini-desserts - excellent!!

Thank you so much! The room was perfect for our meeting today and, as always, the food was great!

"University of Minnesota's Campus Club is really the place to go in town. Not only because of the carefully crafted haute-cuisine dishes, not only because of the amazing location and views, not only because of the serious and refined bar selection. Not just for that.
The ambiance, the decor and architecture, the people that you meet here carry just as much weight in one's decision to dine, and the affable personnel and knowledgeable staff is included. I ate here the best pork schnitzel I ever had, and I am European and am highly educated on this specific matter. Chef's creativity and repertoire are almost endless, and I don't think I have seen the same dish twice. New American at its best."


Our event went great! Very happy with the Campus Club!

Wedding Feedback: Campus Club is a beautiful venue for both ceremony and reception. At the end of the wedding, all I heard was compliments from our family and friends - delicious food, professional and friendly employees, effortless service. Seriously the best wedding food I've ever had!

Wedding Feedback: The venue space was gorgeous with views of the Minneapolis skyline and the Weisman. The staff was incredible: friendly, professional, flexible and helpful. The food was delicious, locally sourced, and displayed well. And remarkably, the price was super affordable.

Regarding a recent Chef's Special: "Absolutely fabulous. Everyone: this is the best food in town!"

The food and service and our wedding party were wonderful! The vegetarians said that was the best vegetarian meal they’ve ever had. Also: kudos to the banquet manager, who was great to work with, as well as all of the friendly staff!

We are still reeling a bit from yesterday but I can't wait any longer to tell you how much we enjoyed the reception!! It was magical. We had at least a dozen guests ask us who catered the food. The rest were too busy eating and raving about the spread to make inquiries. We also had several compliments on the serving staff. They did a lovely job of keeping tables full, passing the Asti and looking after everyone. People really enjoyed the menu. Lots of comments on the speck and melon, the chippolini, the Tagliate, the brats, the cabbage, the pork....all of it. I have to say the speck and melon was a high light for me - it was so refreshing on a terribly hot day!! Thank you for all you did to help create a lovely space for the celebration. Many, many thanks to both of you for your efforts. We could not feel better about the choice we made to hold the reception at the Campus Club.

Thank you for another job well done!!!!! Everyone enjoyed themselves - and most of all - I was VERY APPRECIATIVE that you were able to accommodate our "late" reservation!!!!!!

I have to tell you that the party couldn't have gone better. The staff was amazing and so responsive and professional. We all had a fantastic time. The food was out of this world. All the spaces are so fun and it's great to be able to walk around and experience each of them.

Everything was a wonderful success Saturday night. Thank you for all you effort and assistance!

Thanks for your great work organizing our meeting, as everyone very much enjoyed the opportunity to use the facility. Your staff was extremely helpful and accommodating and I appreciate all of their work in making our meeting a success.

Food is delicious! Great food, great view. Everyone had a great time and gave us tons of compliments. The Knot Wedding Channel.

Our lunch Thursday was absolutely delicious. It was a Moroccan dish served with quinoa - a total winner! My guest was very impressed by the club and the food as well. Thanks for doing such a great job.

Your team was amazing to work with for our last event! They were responsive to our sponsors needs and attentive about picking up used dishes quickly. Please pass this message along to them and their supervisors. I also appreciated your responsiveness and assistance in figuring out the sound and other needs. All in all the customer service was amazing. Thank you.


Just wanted to send a quick thank you for your help with the CFACT event tonight. The room was fantastic and the food was delicious(kudos to the chefs!). Our guests really enjoyed themselves. Can't wait to have another event there soon.


It was wonderful! You all made the night go perfectly. Thank you so much. We can't wait for next year's event! Thanks again.


We had a fabulous evening last night! THANK YOU very much to you and the entire staff for your great service. The food was delicious! We'll help spread the word on what a great resource you are.
Thanks again.


Thank you again for everything! One of my bridesmaids just came into my office at work and started talking about how she was craving the wedding food. :-) Everything was FANTASTIC (including the final invoice - I was holding my breath while I opened the attachment) and I hope that someday I can do something else at the Campus Club. It really is a great venue and you and the staff were amazing! You guys made planning the event from across the country a breeze.


It was a wonderful evening for our reunion! We wound up with exactly 50 people and your staff was outstanding! I heard many compliments on the venue and the food.The on-site manager was so helpful, as were the other staff members. We stayed until midnight and had the best time in 40 years!


I just want to take a moment to thank you and the Campus Club staff. Everything went quite smoothly -- thanks for providing last minute tech assistance. -- and the mid-afternoon refreshments were delivered precisely on time.

 


"Thanks to the entire Campus Club team. Our family and friends loved the evening & the venue. I wanted for nothing the entire night. Everything went so smoothly. Thanks again to your staff for coordinating all the day of plans! What a lovely day. We couldn't have done it without you!"


Last night's event was wonderful. The food was great, the staff was attentive, and they had a wonderful evening.


As a wedding planner I am so glad to thank you for making our recent wedding recpetion so perfect! All of you were so receptive to our needs. I have enjoyed working with you and hope to work with the Campus Club again in the future. Thanks again!


Thank you for all of your help with the Freie Universität Berlin anniversary event last Friday! It was a huge success. I received lots of compliments about the space and the food. Our German guests loved the food and a German expat living here really enjoyed the currywurst and German asparagus.


Our luncheon on Saturday was a great success, and I had a lot of compliments on the food. Thanks! If possible I'd like to go ahead and reserve for next year.


I heard very good comments about today's lunch in the Dale Shephard Room. Also, thank you so much for helping us out on the technical end. I really, really appreciate it.


First of all- our event on Friday was wonderful! The set-up and food was perfect and the Campus Club employee who assisted with our event, was awesome-- friendly and extremely helpful and efficient. Thank you!


Thank you for helping make our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party a wonderful occasion! It was delicious, well-run, and you were all very gracious with our guests. We will be sure to recommend you to others!

The reception flowed so well with your timeline. The event staff were all friendly. Thank you for your patience in dealing with all of requests and questions.


Thank you very much. The event was very successful, the guests enjoying the gathering. The boss was also very pleased. Best part was that our staff weren't responsible for setup and teardown.

Thanks a ton for helping us have a wonderful wedding day! I want to thank you personally for all of your hard work - it was definitely evident on our big day - everything went so smoothly. Please extend our thanks to all the staff as well - everyone was much appreciated!
"The food, the bar, and the venue itself received a lot of compliments from our family and friends. We had a great evening , too - it was a treat to get to dance and mingle with our guests without worrying about any of the details. Thank you a million times over!"


Thanks so much – your service is AMAZING. I appreciate the attention and the high quality of our guests' experiences.


Thank you again for the wonderful organization last night -- the dinner went very well and the guests polished their plates, so the food was a great success. In fact, I do have one more request -- where can I get that AMAZING focaccia-like bread? I think it had rosemary in it and the crust was very crisp and I absolutely need to buy a few dozen loaves ;> Seriously, if it's available for purchase, I'd love to get some.


I wanted to take a few days before I raved about how wonderful the Campus Club was for our wedding. The whole event was spectacular! I heard many compliments on the service, the food, the atmosphere and the venue. Even the next day, our families were reminiscing over the delicious food. Please pass along a huge thank you to each and every Campus Club employee who helped make our day better than we could've imagined. I had so much fun, due in no small part to you and all your co-workers.

We had a MARVELOUS time at the Campus Club!!!! People raved about the Flat Iron Steak and Polenta dishes on the first night and equal accolades for the pork tenderloin and roasted root vegetables on the second night. As expected, the view from the West Wing was fabulous, and your servers kept food on the buffet line and were always very helpful. The campus club provided just the right setting to foster the social interaction I was hoping to create with this new group of faculty. Thank you very much.


I heard nothing but great compliments on the luncheon at the Campus Club that we had on Friday. Thank you for your excellent service and food quality. I look forward to having future events at the Campus Club.


Thank you so much for making the surprise party for my wife a great success. We were able to get into a room for dinner that was very comfortable, the staff was efficient and friendly, the food was excellent especially the cheesecake desert. Again I believe everyone enjoyed the experience and we look forward to coming back for a summer meal on the terrace. Thanks again to you and the staff at the Campus Club for a most enjoyable dinning experience.


Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for our party on Wednesday. Our staff had a great time and your staff was delightful to work with. Please let them know that they were all very friendly and helpful!


To the Campus Club Event Staff (and all who helped with this event), I just wanted to send this note of appreciation for the great job that you did for our March of Dimes, March for Babies event. I received many compliments on the great job "I" did there, so I am redirecting those compliments to those of you who really put it together! Thanks so much.


The Campus Club at the University of Minnesota is one of the very best restaurants in the Twin Cities, both in terms of quality and value. The food is always fresh, expertly prepared and artistically presented. There is an ever-changing variety of different foods to choose from every day. I recommend everything. My favorites are the daily Chef's Special, the excellent salad bar, and the lamb burger. In the winter, I especially love their comforting soups (my favorite: steak and potato). They make an effort to use locally produced ingredients. Their portion sizes are just right--large enough to satisfy, but not so large as to tempt me to overeat. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting. The views of the Mississippi River from the bar and of downtown Minneapolis from the main dining rooms are outstanding. Every time I go out to eat at a restaurant, I find myself comparing it to the Campus Club. The Campus Club usually wins.


I wanted to thank you and the staff at the Campus Club for the wonderful event that you helped with today. The staff that took care of us were great and very helpful, even taking a group photo at the end. The food was spectacular, I was very impressed that the scones were so fresh they were still warm from the oven. My first event here on campus couldn't have gone better. Please extend our thanks and gratitude to all.


Everything went really well! The food was delicious, and the staff was all very nice and helpful, and everyone had a great time. I'd definitely recommend the Campus Club to others. Thanks!


Thanks very much for doing such a wonderful job with our event. The food was great, as always, and the staff was so helpful at every point. We really appreciate it.


We had such a great event on Saturday. Please thank your team for their efforts. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful! We would recommend the Campus Club to anyone looking to plan a special event. Our guests commented several times on the venue. It was so enjoyable!


I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with putting together last Friday's dinner. I heard many people remark at how delicious the food was, and how much they enjoyed the atmosphere there. I was thanked by nearly everyone there for putting on such a nice event, and I wanted to be sure the credit got to the right people. You, and the staff, made the planning and the event nearly effortless on my part, so thank you!


The staff at our wedding reception was PHENOMENAL. They were absolutely on top of everything. We can't say enough good things about them. Please let them know just how happy we were with everything. The event was a great success! The staff at the Campus Club is exceptional. Everything from the cleanliness of the rooms, to the food and service, the room set-up, and the way the staff worked with our outside vendors was all so impressive. The Bar Manager was especially helpful. Thank you. Thank you.


Thank you for everything on Friday and Saturday. All went well, the food was good, and a good time was had by all at the Law School Reunion.


My graduation party at the Campus Club was a rousing success. Thanks to everyone for helping to make it so.


This was the best event!! Everyone and everything was great. Thank you for the superb organization. Kudos to the chef and serving staff.


We were VERY pleased with the Campus Club staff and the event we hosted earlier this week. Service at every level was truly outstanding -- everything from questions about room reservations, facilities, to menu planning and finalizing the details, through the hosting of the event itself was handled in a timely, professional and extremely competent manner. Jessica was very helpful, prompt, and patient with changes to menu. Our wait staff was exceptional and graciously and professionally accommodated service requests from our Director that had not been planned for in advance. Everyone raved about the service and the exceptional food. I especially appreciated knowing that all details were taken care of and that I could be assure that everything from the room set up, to menu, to timing of the evenings events would be done as planned without problems. I personally have not hosted an event on campus through the Campus Club before, however I can assure you that I will definitely do so in the future and recommend others do so as well.


Our daughter recently had her wedding at your beautiful facility. It was a most delightful experience! Your staff is the greatest! They were always pleasant, patient, and willing to help with anything and everything. Our wedding guests complimented us on the beauty of the facility, delicious food and service of the staff. We only have one daughter so we won't be holding another wedding reception, so thanks for making it so wonderful.


Thank you so much for helping to make our reunion so successful. Your staff was outstanding in creating a very memorable evening for all. I received so many compliments about the Club.


Thanks to you and all the staff that made my son's bar mitzvah possible. I felt very well treated. It turned out beautifully.


Thank you for your help. The group was pleased with the outcome of the meeting, and I attribute part of that to the comfort and convenience provided that made it easy for them to focus on their agenda.


I intended to send a prompt hand-written note of thanks, but hope you will accept heartfelt accolades in e-mail form. The event was absolutely perfect in every way, and all of our guests raved about the fantastic food. You know it is not always easy to please our more mature" constituents – but you delighted everyone. Even when the group mutinied and demanded wine with lunch, you graciously came to our rescue – and, also at a moment's notice, prepared a delicious and elegant dessert. We are so happy to have such a classy spot to entertain our alumni and donors, and to have outstanding people with whom to work.


Our program hosted a two day meeting this Thursday and Friday for ten peer programs from throughout the U.S. as part of our involvement in a leadership demonstration project. All of our guests were very impressed with the food, the professional service, and the incredible facilities provided by the Campus Club. The hard work of you and your staff made a huge impact in helping elevate the stature of the University of Minnesota to visiting guests. Thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful job done. Please let your staff know that we greatly appreciate their work.


Thank you so much for making our reception awesome. It went so well and smooth. We had such a wonderful time and tons of our guests commented on how excellent you all were.
