Diner Reviews
  • "I had heard amazing things about minibar's brunch, "the food is great, atmosphere is fun, bottomless mimosas, great Sunday brunch spot"! 4 of my friends and I went there & the food was mediocre at best, the mimosas were never refilled (+ my first glass had black floaty things all the way through it), we were there for about two hours and had only three drop by visits all from a different servers, the food all looked like different colored mush, it took us about 30 min to get our check (while we sat with empty champagne and water glasses) and when it came it was all wrong but nobody could fix it for us because out "server" dropped it off and went directly out the front door and didn't come back for 20 + minuets. Very disappointing experience"

  • "I went for my birthday brunch this past Sunday after church. The reservation was originally for 10 but I had 14 show up and I was afraid some of my friends wouldn't be able to sit so I asked the server if we could get a few more place settings to squeeze in a few more and he said, "if you have more than what your reservation says then that's too bad because we are too busy to change your reservation last minute." I told the manager about the extra people and he promptly set about making space. So thank you for helping to make my birthday guests feel welcomed. The server however was slow in getting refils, didn't give us mimosa carafe replacements unless we asked multiple times and acted like we were a problem not his guests."

  • "It was nice and easy. The service was polite but sometimes difficult to keep up with the customers request, like maintaining water glasses full,etc. but overall it was a great experience. I would def go back."

  • "Been going to mini-bar brunch for several years and loved it. This was my first time back since the renovations which I found very dark and bland. I liked it better before. The noise level was way much higher than usual and we had to scream to talk to one another. When we went up to the buffet half the food was gone and took forever for it to be replenished. I have always loved this place and I am hoping this was just an off day for them. I will give them another try."

  • "Food was great, big variety for brunch. Mimosas kept flowing. We were seated in the basement, which felt like a dungeon, but was nice to get some stair activity every time we went for another plate of food :)"

  • "We were informed about Minibar's brunch at the spur of the moment, so we made a reservation (a quick and simple online process) and had a wonderful brunch. Staff was friendly and attentive. The music was fun and energetic. We will surely be back for more when we return to chicago. Thanks Minibar."
