A word from Grand Tour
Grand Tour originally derives from the rite of passage young gentlemen embarked upon beginning in the mid-1600's. Today, Grand Tour provides the opportunity to experience similar international fascinations through the culinary, beverage and entertainment programs. In addition to the regular brunch, lunch and dinner menus, each month, Chef Roger Herring will take diners on a tour of a different country, by way of a prix fixe menu. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I recently enjoyed Grand Tour's July French menu. The mussels were outstanding, the steak frite juicy and tender, and the dessert was amazing. Can't wait to get back there!"

  • "In a neighborhood of been-there-forever corner bars, this bar/restaurant strives to be much more. The food selection of mostly small plates is high quality and ranges from the familiar to the exotic. Everything was good, but I particularly enjoyed the beet and goat cheese salad. There is a large selection of beers and some interesting wines and cocktails."

  • "Went here for a birthday dinner. The small plates we had as appetizers were amazing - beet salad, pretzels (omg so good), bulgogi bao buns, flatbread. Our server told us to ignore the labels small plates vs large plates and just think of them as apps and entrees. Apparently their original intent was to be a small plate/tapas/sharing kind of place but that "confused" their customers. Not sure I understood that. The entrees we got were good too. Scallops- delicious but not much food. Burger- really really good. Fried chicken - great sriracha honey dipping sauce, but my dad said the chicken itself wasn't that special. Got one of each of their desserts too- pretty good! Beer list was decent. All in all, great neighborhood place - check it out!"

  • "The beer selection was top notch. There's was possibly the oddest menu I have ever ordered off, but the food was fantastic! We started with the Pretzel, worked up through a shared portion of Gnocchi, and then on to the Fried Chicken. It was eclectic but wonderful. The featured meal was of Mexican variety and we only indulged in the dessert from that menu. We had the good fortune of being there during Game 6 of the NHL Western Division Finals, and were thrilled when owner Jim Cornelison himself was on hand."

  • "It was nice to try this new place near Welles Park. Great decor, good vibe, great food and drinks. A little pricey, but worth it. Great 70s Folk/Rock band on Saturday night around 9 p.m."

  • "Celebrated my birthday at Grand Tour on Saturday with a group of 8 people. The food was excellent as were the cocktails. We also had excellent service including a visit by the chef. I will definitely go back again to sample more of the selections on the menu."

  • "What service! We arrived a little late in traffic but the hostess kindly held our reservation. Each mom was handed a red carnation -- nice touch. Our server did an awesome job throughout the meal: explaining the eclectic menu, suggesting items, offering individual plates to split the popular french toast we couldn't resist, keeping drinks and food coming. Attentive but not hovering. The drinks were delicious. The flavors of each dish were subtle and wonderful together. It's obvious this restaurant takes great pride in baking their famous pretzel bread, curing their meats onsite, and creating unusual dishes from around the world. They lived up to their name and reputation. We enjoyed a seat by the open windows on a beautiful day. "

  • "The bar has a great atmosphere and is great to watch sports. The food still needs some work. The foie gras was unsalted and came with hardly any strawberry preserves to break up the fat. The gnocchi was delicious but the accompanying sauce had NO seasoning whatsoever. If you're charging a lot for small plates, they need to be perfect. The restaurant also changed the menu (still not reflected on their website), and the server seemed to remember better what was not on the menu rather than what was. I would also recommend the restaurant give you more than one plate - after waiting a few rounds of small plates, I don't want to keep eating on a dirty dish. Servers were very nice, but need a little training. "

  • "There were 4 of us for an 11:00 Easter Sunday brunch. The hostess gave us only 2 menus. 2 of us ordered drinks and they were very slow to arrive. One server brought another tables order to us. The televisions were way too loud. I asked for the volume to be turned down and they did. Food was good, but they need to clean up their act. One does not expect loud sports on for Sunday brunch. "

  • "This is a food-centric, chef-driven restaurant just West of Lincoln Square. Fantastic service, nice ambience. I think the chef is working a couple links out. Innovative, interesting dishes, but many were a hair nunbalanced, as if there was something subtle missing. Still, a great addition to the neighborhood, and someplace I'd definitely return to."

  • "Grand Tour refers to the menu: once a month a country is featured, such as Greece, and a special price is offered for the meal. Diners are given a passport and for every tour your passport is stamped and there are rewards for your travels. We tried the Greek Grand Tour and it was lovely. Lamb, red snapper, potatoes, green beans and other Greek specialties plus a yummy dessert. I can't wait to go back! The staff was super friendly and the clientele was young--we were the oldest people there but didn't feel out of place."

  • "Everything we ordered looked intriguing on the menu and when it arrived exceeded expectations, in both presentation and taste. I'm definitely excited to go back and try more. I'm not quite sure why everything was labeled as "shared plates" (large or small), since they were the size and presentation you'd expect for standard first course/second course individual servings, but fine. My only complaint is that they need to refine the pacing. It took forever to get all of our food, which came out a plate at a time (fine, since we were sharing). For a date night or dinner with friends, this would be okay, but it was 6pm on a Tuesday and we had a toddler. He did great, but a two-hour dinner is a LOT to ask."

  • "Fantastic experience at this gem off the main strip of Lincoln Square. I recommend dining at this restaurant with a group of friends that will enjoy sharing the variety of delicious small and large plate items."

  • "Great draft beer selection, plus waitress was a trained Sommelier. Ecletic menu by design. Well executed despite the inherent challenge of offering food spanning numerous cuisines. Looking forward to going back for live music."

  • "I've been to Grand Tour twice since they opened and this place is fantastic. Specializing in new presentations of worldwide cuisine, there is something for everyone here- Bangers and Mash, Octopus, or a half a Pig's Head! They have a great beer list, however they have been waiting on their liquor license so it's been BYOB on both of my visits. Please go here! Grand Tour has the ambiance and dining you'd expect from a Lincoln Park restaurant, and somehow I lucked out and it ended up in my neck of the woods. Give Grand Tour a chance so this neighborhood gets more awesome places to go to!"

  • "Wanted to really like this place since it is in our neighborhood, but it left a lot to be desired. The food was good, don't get me wrong, but they are still working out the kinks. The service was by far the area needing the most improvement. Our server took initial orders for "sharing" plates and then pretty much ignored us. We asked to keep a menu in case we wanted to order something else. She took all of our menus. We wanted to order dessert and she was nowhere to be found. We eventually flagged down another server to get our bill. They had a lot of managers there standing around, but that's the problem - they were mostly just standing around. It is a new place and has a lot of potential, but has a ways to go on service."

  • "Was hesitant to go to a brand new restaurant, but it did not disappoint! Party of 6 and we probably tried half of the menu....not one bad dish. Everything was delish!"

  • "Been following Roger Herring on Facebook and had to check out Grand Tour. My friend said she read it was a sports bar so she had to be convinced to try it. Pho Salad was light and healthy, and the fried chicken was delicious. Lots of foodie options and it was cool that the big screens were not blasting out sports during prime dining. A welcome addition to the North Center/Wells Park."

  • "I have already dined here twice & am extremely impressed for a new venue still in soft opening. Chef Roger Herring (formerly of Socca) is such an immensely talented chef and the menu here is outstanding. From adventurous foods such as a pig's head to comfort food like fried chicken, truly something for everybody with their international tapas style menu. Quality is high & pricing extremely reasonable. The space was completely renovated and looks stunning. Staff is warm & friendly but expect the occasional expected misstep as is the norm for a new venue. Has the ambiance of a vibrant, upscale yet very comfortable pub. I anticipate dining here very frequently in 2014. Such a great addition to Chicago's dining scene & well worth a visit."
