If you haven’t tried Suzette’s you’re missing out!

We HIGHLY recommend Suzette's! Excellent food, great service, and a welcoming atmosphere. Oh, and the bread pudding melts in your mouth!

Yumm! Cannot wait to go back!




We went to Suzette's for our anniversary. Don't be put off by the odd location and building, the dining experience is outstanding. The service is attentive and not rushed.

I highly recommend this restaurant as would many of our friends.



The food preparation is 5 star and the restaurant a hidden gem in Jordan, Mn.

We had tournedos of beef and sirloin steak - both dinners were exellent and artfully presented. I've travelled for business for 35 years and would have a hard time finding such great food at reasonable prices anywhere else.



A place worthy for any occasion.

May it be the friendly staff, the warm and friendly atmosphere, or the fine exquisite food nothing comes close within hundreds of miles.


Cudos to the chef at Suzette’s

Nice wine and beer selection, but best of all the food was superb from start to finish.



Well worth the trip We've been driving by Suzette's for years but have never stopped. EVERY time I comment that I want to try it out one of these days. My husband wanted to do something special so arranged for reservations.

It's about an hour drive for us and was well worth it. It's a small, tidy diner style restaurant with a small shop area in the front with jewelry and other things for sale (fun to browse while you wait). The sea bass was absolutely lovely...very fresh and well prepared. We also ordered the special, which was crab stuffed jumbo prawns served with whipped garlic mash. Both dishes came with beautifully prepared fresh, crisp vegetables. The veg was one of my favorite parts of the meal.

I do have to take a minute to rave about the desserts. We ordered enough to feed a small village. Chocolate cake, tiaramisou, bread pudding with bourbon sauce (our favorite), and vanilla ice cream. All were delectable but I'd highly recommend the bread pudding.

Overall, very nice quaint, gourmet restaurant. Compliments to the chef. We'll definitely be back!

Looks can be deceiving. From the outside, you might think that you're about to enter a quaint diner - but inside are the makings of a true gourmet experience with some country charm thrown in.

Highly recommend the escargot which is ensconced in a light pastry and sitting in a decadent pool of butter. I had the salmon. Divine. My wife the mixed grill with beef, lobster tail described as "petit" on the menu but was pretty substantial, plus pork with cranberry sauce (couldn't help myself - I sampled off her plate quite a bit). My dish was so good that I even ate the garnish!!! (Radish placed atop creamy garlicky mashed potatoes). Wines were good too, pretty standard. And to top it off creme brûlée and cappuccino soufflé both great but not as completely awesome as the entrées.

This place reminded me a lot of the Scenic Cafe up north - very unassuming then - BAM!!!!! - you are hit with some of the most amazing food you've had all year.

I met a friend half way from my house in the cities and hers in St Peter. It does look like an average diner from the outside. The interior is pretty simple. BUT the food, oh my the food was amazing!

It really is an incredible restaurant! The options are the same of a really nice place in the cities, with incredibly reasonable prices.

Wow, this was not at all what I was expecting. I do a lot of driving between Minneapolis and Mankato and stop for dinner in between regularly. Suzette appears to be roadside diner, next to a car dealership on the Southern outskirts of Jordan, MN alongside Highway 169. The sign says French/Italian cuisine, so based on the location and exterior, I was expecting spaghetti and meatballs with chocolate mousse. Man was I wrong,

I stopped in with Lorae last night. Once inside it looked like a cute bistro in South Minneapolis.

The chef, a native of Cambodia, studied culinary arts in the French portion of Switzerland before coming to Minnesota. He was previously a chef at a place called Swiss Alps in Highland Park.

The menu was sophisticated French with some Italian touches as well. I guess I wasn't really expecting Chateau Briand in Jordan, MN. I ended up eating the the scallops and shrimp with Ricotta Manicotti. Very fresh and quality seafood for $13. Lorae had the crab cakes again for $13 really good. The menu ranged from $11-29, with the vast majority between $13-16. There was duck, beef, lamb, chicken and seafood options. I didn't check to see if there was anything vegetarian, sorry, that's not how I roll.

We topped the meal off with a triple chocolate cheesecake. Man that was rich, you'd better love chocolate.

They sell Cambodian jewelry and bamboo plants, if that tickles your fancy.
