    My bill for two people was $126 which I would gladly pay for has the steak not been dry and flavorless, and my lamb been less than 95% bone and cartlege. The didnt trim the fat on any of the lamb. We brought all of this to our servers attention and were never asked once by any staff, including the manager walking around if our food was ok etc. this is a first for me at any restraunt in my life. I left hungry and would not recommend. Lastly, it is so insanely loud there, you can't hear a word someone is saying sitting right next to you. Overpriced fancy looking bar food.

    Brought a group of Chicagoans here over the weekend and they loved it. Very crowded and we had to wait, even though we had a reservation and checked in early. But the host sent over some sparkling wine where we were sitting at the bar and we were having a hood time so we didn't mind waiting. Food was outstanding.

    Went there in a Friday night at 730pm and got seated right away (had a reservation via opentable). Table for two was good size and not right on top of other tables. Server was friendly and knowledgeable but not an over-sharer and never felt like she was interrupting us too often or chatting too long about a dish or drink (which can occur sometimes at these foodie/hipster joints). We had the pork chops and the chicken - both dishes were delicious and both plates got cleaned spotless. We then ordered the "market" desert which was a chocolate fudge/soufflé with graham cracker crust and whip cream - again, that late for cleaned (perfect size desert, about 4-5 small bites for each of us). Total bill w 4 drinks overall: $100 w/o tip

    I've been to Eat Street Social a number of times and it never disappoints. The food is amazing. It's a great place to go with a group of friends for cocktails or a night out with your parents before going to the orchestra. The house-made bitters are equally as good for cocktails as they are for the non-alcoholic fancy-pants sodas. My only complaints are that it can sometimes get noisy and the booths are a bit claustrophobic. Very easy obstacles to overcome with the delicious menu and beverages.

    My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time this weekend. It was nice and we had a good time. The service was excellent and the food and drink was really good. We were seated next to a couple where the women's voice was loud, annoying and she was commenting to her date about a past relationship (we felt sorry for the guy she was with) but that was not the fault of the restaurant. I would certainly recommend you give this place a try.

    First time at Eat Street Social, and we've just added another "have to go again" restaurant to our list! We were super impressed with the wait staff's knowledge of their cocktails and food. The owner, Sam, came over and introduced himself. Their inhouse bitters and liquors were wonderful, inhouse sausage, amazing! I had lamb, my partner had halibut....both were excellent. I can't wait to go there again. Thank you !!!

    Server was polite but very rarely came by throughout our entire experience. We'd be ready to order with drinks and wait until forever to order another one. Same with the food-we'd be ready to order and he'd be gone forever again. Food was definitely mediocre-which was a real disappointment bc everyone has been hyping it up and all of these great reviews. If I'm going to drop over $50 on brunch for just myself, I'd hope that at least 1 of the 2 things are met, which is 1) Great food or 2) Great service. If I get both, that's fantastic, but if I even just experience ONE out of those 2 things, I'm easy to please. I was choosing between Libertine or here for brunch and after this experience, I was regretting my choice of Eat Street Social.

    I was disappointed in the value. We had the Shrimp Gumbo appetizer, it had nice flavors but the sausage was a little tough and off-putting, the shrimp were cooked well. I had the Amish chicken dish, it had a delicious polenta cake and the Brussels sprouts and bacon had a nice flavor combination. The sauce was a little sweet and savory. I would recommend this dish. My husband ordered the lamb medium rare and it came out rare, pretty much equivalent to raw with a sear. The lamb portion that was cooked to order was good. The amount of hummus was overwhelming. He was not in love with this dish. The bread pudding was decent. We would not go back for dinner, we enjoy other places much more for less cost, such as Rinata. Our bill was $78.

    Expensive but unique $10-12 cocktails. Arugula salad=good but had a lot of kick (probably more than necessary for an opener). My date wanted his lamb "medium"--however, our waiter (who had a fair amount of attitude~) talked him into med rare. It literally came burgundy/clear (wiggling) in the middle. When he sent it back, they brought back 1 tiny 1.5 round medallion sitting in the middle of a large white plate. The flavor didn't even hold a candle to my sister's grilled lamb chops. I ordered pappardelle but gnocchi was brought to me. It took a LONG TIME to get my correct order. My date was finished eating when my food finally arrived. It was flavorful but 2 garlicky. My date left hungry. No attempt 2 "correct" the entree mistake was made.

    3rd visit to Eat Street Social, a lovely venue with a nice outdoor patio in a nifty urban neighborhood. Our server, Tom, was friendly and attentive but even he couldn't salvage the experience. Ordered Miller Lite, but received Miller High-Life; no big deal; Server described Soup du jour as split-pea w ham, but I rec'd chickpea (garbanzo bean) soup w ham instead---no problem, as it was pretty good. My entree of papparadelle w feta, olives, & cukes contained blanched arugula which rendered the entire dish inedibly bitter. Spouse's soft-shell crab po'boy was OK, tho not served on brioche, as listed on menu. After noting my bitter pasta dish, Chef graciously treated us to a shared creme brulee. Overall, a disappointment.

    OK, I've eaten at this place's sister restaurant, Northeast Social, and have always enjoyed it. But this was a whole new experience. Totally different menu and TOTALLY different quality of service. We will be back!!! Service was quick and friendly throughout the meal. Our waiter made great suggestions and was able to answer all our questions. Cocktails are funky and tasty. Great little patio on the side for outdoor dining. This is a winner.
