Diner Reviews
  • "Came here with 5 of my girlfriends on a last-minute reservation. None of us had been here before and we all walked away thrilled to pieces with our experience. Everything was great; from the food to the service to the sights and sounds of a warm-ish Chicago evening. Minus the wailing of a few ambulance sirens (hey, it's downtown Chicago), our dinner couldn't have been better."

  • "We had dinner and drinks here for Valentine's Day 2014--the ambiance was vibrant, server (Josh) was both friendly and knowledgable, and the restaurant was filled with a diverse group of young couples, which was just the type of atmosphere we were looking for. However, we found the food to be rather mediocre and had higher expectations based on both the menu offerings and the prices. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I'd be interested to go back for the craft cocktails exclusively (instead of ordering a bottle of wine)--perhaps the greatness is in the "drink" rather than the "food"?"

  • "We ordered from the special Restaurant Week 2014 menu. The rock shrimp, burrata, and chicken wings were all delicious. The osso buco entree was also very good. The service was not the best but I have friends who have been there before and they had good service. It is located in the Dana Hotel and Spa so I would imagine that the room service is very good. I will try it again."

  • "Very rare to go back to a restaurant twice in a week but 3 times , well , thats crazy. The flatiron steak with fries cooked in truffle oil is amazing."

  • "Freestyle is located in the Dana hotel & the food and service did not disappoint. Appetizers: caesar salad with herb dressing & rock shrimp. Both were really good. Entrees: Both had short ribs with mashed potatoes. The ribs fell apart with your fork & the mashed potatoes were very good. My only complaint is that something on the plate had truffle oil, which I don't like, & it was not listed in the description. Dessert: Both had the brown butter sundae & it was excellent! It was a blondie with vanilla gelato, whipped cream & cherries on top. It is a BIG dessert! Portions were big and I was able to try the apple pie whiskey prior to ordering a Manhattan with it to ensure I liked it. Our waiter was really attentive and very friendly."

  • "The restaurant's ambiance was excellent with modern design and great background music. Food was very good (e.g., jumping beef, sea bass). However, the boneless chicken has bones and the chicken was dry."

  • "We were there with a group and the service was excellent, a very friendly and likeable server. The food was good, everyone like their food. Overall it was a very good experience."

  • "The food was far too superior to have been served in what seemed just an appendage to the raucous bar crowd -- not many chose to dine on a Saturday night (though it was early, 6 PM). Service was outstanding, don't know if that holds true when more than 3 or 4 booths are occupied."

  • "It is dark and quiet, but a lovely little escape to a fireplace on a winter night. Good shared appetizers, good bar menu."

  • "Good central restaurant- part of a hotel. Needed somewhere quick and easy to find. Food was much better than expected- Had Egg Benedict with sauce on the side. Portion was huge and request for Fruit brought what would normally be a full portion on the side. Only downside was the coffee- we asked for a Press and the first that came was very weak. The server immediately replaced with double the coffee but even this was only acceptable- something to do with their coffee. Nice looking dining room with view over the street."

  • "This is the 3rd place here in 5 years, and they still havent figured it out. Even at happy hour prices, a meal with no booze was over 50 dollars for 2 people. This was for an order of sliders, 2 rolls, and mac and cheese. No way I would have paid the 75 plus it would be at non happy hour rates for what ammounts to bar food. Granted it was pretty good, but no where worth the prices. Plus it is just a random collection of foods, which is fine for some food and drinks, but would never pay the top dollar they are asking for food to accompany my cocktails."
