The restaurant was packed full of people enjoying their evening and service was wonderful.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. IThe food was excellent. I was especially pleased to find that Hub 51 has an entire gluten free menu. As I am gluten intolerant, this made ordering my food a pleasure. Kudos to LEYE for being on top of things. The only negative was our waiter who disappeared at some point. We had to ask the hostess to take care of our bill.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out with the crewWe were a party of 10 (with reservation) and felt welcome immediately. Seating was easy and they were super flexible despite our group not being complete right away. Service was super nice and all the food was very good with exception of the Ahi Tuna Sandwich (bread was soggy, tuna was mediocre...). The table tried sushi, salads etc. and all of it was great.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Business LunchWe enjoyed a great business lunch meeting at Hub 51. It is an ideal location for business lunch in River North.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Carrot CakeThe food and service were amazing, our waiter was very knowlegeable about the menu and wine list.

The nachos were delicious! The portion was large enough to share for 4 or probably even more people.
The house Juice drink was equally delicious and the Cucumber drink was refreshing.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMtwo small kids at lunchWe brought our kids and an out of town guest here for lunch.

Mark S5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVED IT!!!3 of my girlfriends and I went here for brunch while we were in town. LOVED THIS PLACE! We made reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. The waitress was very knowledgable and did a fantastic job answering our questions regarding food and drink options. We had the river north mimosa's and bloody maria's, they were both perfect for brunch. The food was also phenomenal. We had the breakfast tacos, breakfast nachos, skinny lemon pancakes, baked apple french toast and chicken sausage. We devoured everything! Everything was seasoned very well, cooked to perfection and super tasty. I can't wait to go back the next time I'm in Chicago!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLively restaurant with good foodWe had a reservation on Saturday at 6:30 PM and the place was already pretty lively. The cocktails were tasty although maybe they could have been a little stronger.
The menu was very international. We ordered 2 sushi (salmon & crispy tuna) for appetizers and they were generous helpings with 6 pieces each. Both were very good. For our main courses we both had tacos and you basically had the fixings to build your own. A nice idea and both were delicious (fish & bbq chicken). The deserts were tempting but we were full.
By the time we left the restaurant and bar were buzzing. I counted 5 hen parties in the restaurant. A fun place that still delivers good food.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a very nice restaurantIt was a very nice restaurant where my friends and I enjoyed the food and environment. Service was ok.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie heaven & Chicago hospitalityWe tried HUB 51 at the recommendation of several different people during a recent visit to Chicago and enjoyed an outstanding meal, complete with a surprising variety of Gluten-free options. The only thing better than the food was the incredible service! Both our waiter and one of the hosts went out of their way to help us plan a great day in the city. Make sure to try their famous carrot cake!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and upbeat atmosphereThe guacamole dip is fantastic. Had the filet tacos and wife had the chicken tacos. We both really enjoyed dinner. The corn tortillas are very fresh. Friendly staff all around. Gluten free friendly as well.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Great AtmosphereWe enjoyed the energetic and busy atmosphere almost as much as the food. The pulled chicken nachos were amazing, so much so, that we couldn't eat our main courses. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We highly recommend this place for groups and young couples. Can't wait to visit again!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTwice as NiceThis was our sencond time dining at HUB 51, it was as great the second time around. The fish tacos were full of flavor and the desserts WOW! The crowd was energetic and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Thanks HUB, we will be back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place in Chicago, for.........Best place in Chicago for just about anything. Sat in the bar with a good size group visiting the city, they had been to many other places, but all agreed this was the best! Being a local, enjoy our time at Hub5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolute Best Desserts and ServiceWe have gone to this restaurant 3 times in the past month and each time had a different spectacular dessert. The lemon ice box pie and the chocolate pudding pie with toasted marshmallows are fantastic! Husband loved the chocolate cake too, but I found it too rich. It should be brought home and split into about 4 pieces and served with vanilla ice cream to cut the richness of so much icing. Our servers have always been first-rate. The last time we went (5/21) the server made a special effort to make sure our lemon pie that we were taking home was delivered at the very last second so that it would not melt on the way home. The savory food is great too!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch & Beautiful Day!Walked here from Chicago Theater and it was a beautiful walk over the river. Had a great window table, and the doors were open, so we were inside and out at the same time! The St. Germain & OJ is my new favorite brunch drink, the food was delicious and the server was so friendly and fun! Would recommend to everyone and will go back!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMhad an awesome meal at HUB51had an awesome meal at HUB51 and a great time. Waitress was amazing and had several awesome recommendations. Try the eggrolls as they were insanely good. Def will be back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect TimingWe arrived at Hub 51 prior to a girls night out and the timing was perfect. Great food, didn't feel rushed and energetic waiter.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI've probably been here atI've probably been here at least 15 times and have always had great service and food. Beacuse they have so many food options and are great with allergies/food restrictions, it is a great place to bring groups or people you don't know as well.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPower LunchGreat spot for lunch. The roasted chicken french dip was fantastic. Lots of business professionals from around the area.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchVERY crowded. EXCEPTIONALLY well organized. Food was delicious, service was great. A wonderful Mothers Day meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWas seated immediately, the food was great as always. We had the Chicken Nachos as appetizers, then I had ordered the Green Chili Burger which has a poblano chile, along with a side of seasoned fries, it was so delicious. Our server was Nicole, and she was great, very attentive. Then for dessert we had the brownie sundae, just one was enough for 3 people. Overall experience was Excellent, will be coming back soon. And one more thing, Mom was Happy :)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEclectic Menue Very Good FoodI was surprised by the eclectic mix of Pub Style food with Asian, Mexican, and American cuisine influences. Literally sushi to tacos to meatloaf. Everybody in our party of seven could find something on the menu that suited them. The quality of the food and atmosphere was exceptional and the prices are reasonable. It has a great bar scene and the place filled up quickly. Great place to bring a group of friends or family to hang out and have a pint and great food after a long day.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at Hub 51We had a great experience. My mom, sister and I had a fun girls weekend in Chicago. The food was outstanding! that is an understatement for how the food tasted.. I was so impressed with the Chilean sea bass it was in a horseradish broth. It was unlike anything I have ever had. I am from Southern California and am used to fresh fish so I wasn't sure when I first ordered it. We loved the selection of food because we all eat so different. We tend to be more vegetarian so it was nice to have lots of healthy choices. We had the nachos and vegetarian sushi roll for an appetizer. We will for sure be back to experience more amazing food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPlayful menu and ambianceI love the energy of this place, and the variety of their menu will please even the pickiest of eaters!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, especiallyExcellent food, especially maki creations. I had an excellent Chilean sea bass, but it was a pricey entree considering that it consisted only of a 3x3 piece of fish (albeit excellently prepared) and nothing else.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food/good valueTerrific food, diverse menu and really good service. Hub 51 is a real "value proposition". The chicken nachos were amazing! My only suggestion is that if you want a leisurly meal, don't order the food all at once, or tell the waiter how you want it "spaced out". Our food came so quickly, it reminded me of a fast food restaurant. Still, I would highly recommend it!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the eclectic menu, serviceLove the eclectic menu, service is very good, and it's just a fun time. Always enjoy coming back here when I'm in Chicago.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time Diner at Hub51I was looking for a reasonable priced place to eat with my parents that had a good selection of food that wasn't too "out there".
I was suprised how easy we got reservations - no problem using Open Table. We were seated right away and our waitress was very helpful and friendly. We tried Jerky for an appetizer, it was very tasty. We each got a variation of the make it yourself tacos. Veggies, Chicken and pulled pork - We were all happy with our choices but still a little hungry after. I would recommend definitely getting an appetizer or splitting something else if you all get tacos. Great atmosphere, fun people, awesome location.
Also they surprised us with carrot cake which they are famous for since we were new! THanks!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat's Not To LikeThe younger Melman gentlemen have done a great job of going in a different direction while maintaining the same excellent standards as their other restaurants. Nice range of choices in the Breakfast/Brunch category and there are always people waiting for the doors to open at 10:00a.m. on the week-ends. Their French Toasts are creative and satisfying as well as a range of other typical breakfast foods with an upscale approach. One of my favorites.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for a birthday dinner ..Had an excellent time. Menu is a little bit all over the place, and that is what makes it AWESOME! Sushi, Tacos, burgers and Short Rib. Great time!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food but LoudLocation is key for your seating. We were placed near the kitchen which will impact your experience. We requested to be moved to the otherside of the resturant near the window and that was great. It is a loud place so first dates should take a pass. We ordered the cheese burger and the pork tacos both are great. Place is great service is ok but location is key.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMusic too loud for lunch time.Music too loud for lunch time. Hard to have conversation with client.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night for our group of 7We reserved this restaurant because of the reviews and it did not disappoint. Great music, great food. It was a fun night for our group.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood spotEarly dinner; few diners inside; elected to eat outside; food and service were very good and enjoyed the beautiful warm balmy evening.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentRelaxed high quality environment, not overly pretentious which makes for a great evening dinner meeting venue or just a nice place to have a decent meal.
A little noisy by bar area, which is OK but if you want to talk look for a table further into the restaurant.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite, if notOne of my favorite, if not my favorite restaurant in the city. Great food, great drinks, and a great atmosphere.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been wanting to try it.Have been wanting to try it. Glad we had reservations and went for lunch. It was loud when the restaurant was half full. I imagine the noise would be challenging at dinner time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
