    Fantastic restaurant with great food and a stylish atmosphere. Everything we ate was wonderful: arugula salad, mussels, cheese sticks ( this one was very surprising), sea bass, and black bean soufflé. Shared among 4 people. Don’t miss this place!

    30th anniversary with my wife and we were looking for something new and interesting. Crasqui fit the bill with a delicious array of foods with a Venezuelan flair. We had let them know that we were celebrating an anniversary as part of the reservation process, and we were offered a complementary glass of champagne as we were led to our table next to huge windows that made the whole room bright and sunny. At our table we found a congratulations note signed by the staff and head chef/owner, along with a bit of glitter. That warm welcome was just the beginning of the excellent service we received throughout. Our server was attentive and thoughtful, willing to explain dishes and make recommendations, and then check in on our reactions, all while continually ensuring that we had everything we needed in a way that felt like we were long time favorite customers. This was our first-time eating Venezuelan influenced food was a delicious as it was diverse. We shared two excellent appetizers. For us, the Ensalada Del Sol was a delicious light tomato salad with a remarkable pineapple enhanced sauce. The second app was the Tequenos (cheese sticks with a delicious light cheese served with a cilantro aioli. Our main dishes were a delicious sea bass and a remarkable and unique black bean souffle with cheese foam. Wow. And the desserts included the Homenaje de Papa that included a fabulous dulce de leche). I want to add that the menu is littered with options for the Gluten Free/Vegetarian/Vegan focused eaters. I will tell you that we had items from each of these categories not because we are concerned about these considerations, but because each item was appealing to us. And the results were consistently excellent. At Crasqui, eating as a vegan or avoiding gluten or whatever, does not equate to settling for lesser flavors. Every dish was on point and fabulous. We will be back.

    Kind of a weird location but worth sticking it out. This small establishment is obviously committed to doing food right and representing Venezuelan cuisine as well as possible. A few of the items we had were outstanding, my favorite of the evening was a seafood empanada in in blue corn pastry that was really remarkable. Good atmosphere and very attentive service. I definitely give them an A for effort and will be back.

    This is our 2nd visit and both times we loved the food. They prepare fish perfectly. The shrimp bisque is great. I didn't love my cocktail, but liked the last one I had. The restaurant is lovely inside, but the outside tables face a noisy street.

    Our group of four shared the seafood empanadas and remolachas infused beets appetizers. Interesting and unique drink offerings. Our entrees sea bass, trout and black bean souffle with special touches were each outstanding. The ambiance and service made Carsqui a wonderful dining experience. We recommend highly and we will return.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Crasqui in June 2024. This was our third visit and it just keeps getting better. The space is beautiful and welcoming with much attention to detail in its design. The service by Samantha was outstanding! She was so knowledgeable about the menu and was great about recommending dishes. We ordered everything to share among 4 of us. Where the portions were an appetizer size, and knowing we were sharing, she recommended ordering two portions and it was spot on in terms of each of us enjoying a nice bite or two. Now comes the wow of the evening: the food! Everything Samantha recommended we ordered and could not be more delighted about the gastronomic experience we had. Chef Ramirez is cooking up beautiful and delicious creations with so much care! We will definitely be returning, and our friends (first timers) will also go back. And we vowed to share far and wide recommendations to family and friends. We want many more people to experience this amazing dining experience in downtown Saint Paul across the river on Wabasha. It's easy to get to and there is parking for the restaurant. Hasta la vista, Crasqui!

    This restaurant is a gem. The food was wonderful. The flavors were well balanced and adventurous but not out there overwhelming. Highly recommend the plaintains and the Yucca. The beef entree was a wonderful medium rare and very flavorful with the added sausage which had a nice spice kick but not blow your mouth out hot. Desserts get the coconut cake it’s worth the show and tastes marvelous. Looking to returning soon!!
