My Fav Chicago Restaurant right now
Loved everything we ordered and we licked each plate clean. The atmosphere is fun and lively while they weren't completely full so it was nice to not be squished next to a random table of people.
I cannot wait to go back!

Went here for a night out
Went here for a night out with husband and sister. We had a fantastic time! The bar in the front was great. Happy hour free appetizers are awesome. The pull apart bread was delicious. The prices are reasonable and the ambiance is nice. Loved it! Will return.

I went in this restaurant for the Chef Week. This restaurant knows how to make a usually common dish taste delicious and gastronomic.

Gold coast Gem!
Very pleased with my experience last Tuesday night. The hostess was extremely friendly. Service was prompt. Food was great. The caramelized Sea Scallops were delicious. The GM Matt came over & checked on our table twice. This really impressed my 2 guest. All in all a great time was had in this little slice of Gold coast heaven :)

The food was very good. We were there for Easter brunch which required us to pick 4 dishes for a party of 5 and they would size the portions for your party size. I felt there was not enough food, as we ordered the poutine for 5 which came with one egg on top of the dish for 5 people to split. In the future perhaps you could top it with 2 or 3 eggs to share. Otherwise it was a great experience

Had Saturday brunch recently
Had Saturday brunch recently with a friend. Enjoyed the chiliquillas (sp)- a large portion with great salsa seasoning and a perfect fried egg on top. My guest loved the sausage gravy rolls. I've had lunch there (the lobster roll and fries are to die for) but not brunch. I would recommend both. The waiter was very knowledgable and helpful.
This also is a good place to go alone. The bar was full of singles enjoying lunch and having a good time. Prices are very reasonable for the neighborhood.

We were three for dinner and
We were three for dinner and our experience was relatively pleasant after we were seated. We were originally offered a small banquette end table which would have barely held three dinner plates. We asked for a booth,instead, and were shown to a booth at the far end of the restaurant near a service area and back door. Indicating our displeasure with this location, we were told all other booths were for larger parties. So we settled for the booth near the back exit which resulted in cold drafts every time the door was opened (about three times during our dinner).
Otherwise the food and service were very pleasant though relatively expensive.

A Great Addition to the Neighborhoo
This relatively informal(for a Gold Coast neighborhood) and reasonably priced (ditto), is a great addition to the area. A reasonably priced wine list, rare in this area, and lots of charming small plates. Our winner was potato gnocchi with a crab meat sauce. But there is lots to choose from and most just a step better than commonplace and not too exotic. Service was unbelievably top-notch. The staff made one feel very welcome and the pacing was perfect.
It will become our informal go-to place.

Great service and food
This was our second visit to Little Market and we will definitely be going back. The food is very good, but what stands out the most is the fantastic service. Our waiter, Carlos, was excellent. This was also my experience the first time I dined at Little Market. It's great to see a restaurant that has such a great atmosphere and that also has great food and service. The outdoor space in the summer will be quite nice when it opens.

Second time's a charm
I must admit, this was a last min choice for Mother's Day brunch for my aunt and her family. I knew I needed to pick some place that would accommodate 5-6 people, that they had never heard of before, so wouldn't be able to complain about it before we got there. Let's just say...my aunt & uncle are a tough crowd to please. My 1st visit was right when they opened--a brunch treat after an early morning Sat yoga practice. I ordered a coffee, and the chilaquiles. Not bad, but not great. So I definitely had my fingers crossed when I led them into the restaurant. My smile only kept growing from there, when course after course of PERFECT food came out, and made it to our bellies. 6 satisfied ppl, HUGE smiles, and a thumbs up from my uncle! BRAVO

A few friends had visited for brunch and raved so I thought I'd check it out for dinner. There were four of us and we sat outside on a lovely warm May evening. The service was a little slow in bringing drinks and coffee but it didn't seem to matter as we were outside all enjoying the conversation and each others company plus our server, Carlos, was truly wonderful and engaging throughout the entire meal. The food was an interesting mix of classic American comfort food but nicely done and very satisfying. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect For A Chicago Summer Night
Heard about this place from friends who live in Chicago and since it was less than a ten minute walk from our hotel decided to take their advice. Got a table outside where we could enjoy the evening and the street parade and our wonderful waiter, Markham offered to bring us a tasting menu of the restaurant's signature dishes: deviled eggs, mushrooms on toast with marmalade, ceviche, an amazing risotto, perfectly done scallops. Everything was delicious, as were the drinks. We left smiling, satiated and not stuffed. A great night.

Great little restaurant
They offer shall shares and large shares. The selection is great and the specialty sodas are awesome and I advice trying them since you can get them as a soda or with your favorite spirit for a kick. We had the gnocchi which had great flavor but was a touch tough, the poutine was good but could have more curd (a personal thing), and the roasted chicken with couscous was moist and full of flavor. Save room for the lemon curd dessert. It's excellent.

My New Favorite
This is my new favorite restaurant. I think the food is delicious and the service is superb!

Visit to Chicago
The grilled cheese sandwich is a "must to try" - it is fantastic, the best I've ever tasted - fried egg, bacon and Sriracha sauce is absolute brilliance! Try the charged sodas, too - the cucumber lemon was very tasty and refreshing - it was non-alcoholic, but it liquor can be added to give it an extra zing. The chopped salad wasn't the best, however, it was fresh...but...eh, something was missing and it just tasted bland. Perhaps a difference dressing would do the trick? Overall, a great lunch spot and definitely worth another visit for their grilled cheese sandwich and sodas.

Food is of a high quality and interesting. Different than places I have been before. We went for our anniversary and they treated us great with a free appetizer and a free desert. Would highly recommend the deviled eggs and the All-Day Grilled Cheese.

Great problem to have
So hard to decide what to get on this menu. Right now I'd recommend the trout and risotto. For brunch, the Green Machine cocktail is outstanding!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bloody Mary's were great!
Everyone was fairly pleased with their brunch choice. The favorite was the smoked salmon on top of a hash brown log. The music in the background was a nice touch.
I am happy to have Little Market on the neighborhood!!

Little Market Brasserie was an unexpected pleasure. It is an unassuming location that was perfect and the food was great.

Exceded my expectations
We had a wonderful experience at Little Market. The food was outstanding and the service, although tough to guage at first, was fantastic once we started getting settled. They have a very nice patio but next time, I would love to eat inside. The decor looks really impressive (My wife wanted to set outside and it was her birthday. She won that one.). We had a variety of food from the poutine to the smoked ricotta salad to steak and frites. Everything was great. Perfectly seasoned and enough for 4 people to share. I would definitely recommend Little Market for anyone looking to have a nice, easy going night out.

Quaint, tasty and good service!
We sat outside and had some delicious, refreshing cocktails until the drizzle turned to rain. We were shown a perfect date table where we shared a romantic and tasty dinner with very good service.

We love this restaurant and send Many customers here because of it. The food and service makes this restaurant worth coming back over and over. On a fabulous tree lined street a block off of Michigan ave. Michael and Fiona are always right there to take care of you. The Hostesses always have the perfect place to seat you and the ambiance is very well done. Thank you for being so close to my home and sooooo yummy.

Get the lobster roll!
The food was delicious and the lobster roll was outstanding. Our server was polite and efficient. The restaurant was perfect for a business lunch and we were on our way back to the office in an hour.

This Place Should be More Popular!
We figured a restaurant in an upscale (albeit perhaps slightly fading) hotel wouldn't be anything remarkable...but we were surprised at the diverse menu and the excellent food delivered by the kitchen at reasonable prices. The bread was delicious, the salads were fresh and perked up with some interesting ingredients, and the entrees (great hamburger and fish dishes) were just excellent. It's hard to see why this place was relatively empty one recent evening while just a few blocks away some overpriced and mediocre joints on State and Rush Streets were overflowing. Go here instead!

Cool Atmosphere Fantastic Food
I tried the pull apart bread, the shrimp cocktail, the lobster roll, the market salad (surprisingly good for such a simple salad). All delicious. Loved the decanter light fixtures and the textured ceiling. The lighting was a little dim for my taste, but it added to the ambiance for sure.

Great option in the area
Myself and three friends enjoyed a great dinner at Little Market on Friday evening (reservation was for 6:45). I am often looking for an easy and delicious restaurant for dinner in this area and am so thrilled to have found Little Market.
The food was outstanding, especially the risotto small plate and the filet oscar. We ordered it medium and it came out pretty rare, but the manager and server were very attentive regarding the issue. While I was surprised they took the plate and simply cooked the meat a bit longer (it had some sort of a creamy - not Bearnaise - sauce and crab on top, which they must have scooped off to cook meat longer and then put back on to re-serve it to us), it tasted wonderful.
Very pleasant evening - will go back.

Nice brunch spot
Bright room, great casual vibe, nice cocktails make this a great brunch spot. We were there at noon on a Saturday and the atmosphere was great. Live music was a good touch. I had the grilled cheese with bacon, sriracha and avocado and it was delicious. Cool enough for a date or group of friends, but also laid. Back enough I wouldn't hesitate to bring my 8 year old.
