I'm a vegetarian and I went
I'm a vegetarian and I went with two friends who ate meat - I had a fantastic meal - was not a problem at all that i didn't eat meat and my friend who does eat steak loved the grass fed steak and she has previously never liked grass fed meat. Was a great meal for us all!!

This was my second time dining at Grass Fed and it was even better this time. I loved the lunch (1st outing) but I was more concerned with the decor of the space (thus not focusing on the food as much...big mistake). I wanted my husband to see it, so I booked dinner. We barely noticed the room. The space magically became more intimate in the evening hours, the service amazing and the food...wow. If I could have ordered four entrees I would have! The whole simple concept of using locally owned products (meat, veggies, etc) shines brightly here. The interesting combination of ingredients is insightful (roasted chicken with bratwurst) and so delicious. Seriously, how can a cheeseburger be that good?!

If you haven't been here yet, you are missing out. The food is absolutely amazing. This is one of the best kept secrets in Chicago. Everything our great waiter recommended was perfect, definitely go for the Caramelized Onion and Buttermilk Biscuits appetizers or Crispy Duck Confit and get the Grilled Grass Fed NY Strip Steak with fresh made gnocchi. Don't skip out on dessert either the Butterscotch Pudding is great.

I was so surprised by Grass Fed! The food was outstanding and the service is what really made the whole experience just so special. I loved the biscuits, the great wine selection and the options for meat and vegetarians alike. I saw the brunch menu and can't wait to go back to try it!

Try the burger
If you are disappointed by all these new burger places... Try Grass Fed's burger, it was actually worth it, something special
Beer list could be improved.

The food is FAB!
Everything about our experience, from the prompt greeting to the outdoor patio seating in back was the best and the food was even better. It was so good in fact that I have only one small complaint: the chairs are hard and very uncomfortable. C'mon guys! Spring for some chair pads for the iron furniture on the patio. You got everything else perfectly right!

Steak and cocktails
The food at Grass Fed is really good. They do steak very well and the burger is one of my favorites in Chicago. What I love the most about this place though is the bar service. Their bottled cocktails are the best in the area and the infused liquors are all interesting. I recommend ordering a Sazerac with their orange Rye. The Jalapeño Tequila has great bite as well.

Would do better without that
Would do better without that type of music. Will come back, but will enjoy it even better without this "out-of-place" background.

Simple and Delicious!
My husband and I have been to Grass Fed several times for dinner and brunch. We have never had a bad meal! The menu may be simple with a limited number of items, but everything is delicious! And they do have something for everyone! We recently had the Beef Tenderloin special and it was by far the best I've ever had! So tender and full of flavor! Grass Fed is the only way to go! They have fantastic creative cocktails and though the wine menu is strictly California, it pairs quite well with all of the dishes on their menu. A quaint atmosphere for a romantic date while a fun time to be had for brunch with a bunch of friends! Definitely check out Grass Fed!

Simple but consistently good
The food here is simple but consistently good, Service is always friendly and attentive. The menu is small and as you might expect focused on local meats and fresh produce. I do wish more people would try this place as it is a charming local place with great burgers and steaks and a warm friendly atmosphere. Cocktails are very good but warning, they are also pretty potent!

This was our second trip to Grass Fed. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our steak, but I only wish they still had those gnocchi on the menu! They were amazing. I ordered the strip which came on green beans and pearl onions -- it was good, but I needed some kind of starch with it.

We really enjoyed Grass Fed. We took our two teenage boys who also enjoyed. The decor is nice-love the chandeliers and the emphasis of white everywhere. Our server was great, cocktails were yummy and the menu is well balanced. Everything was very good-we had the burger, steak and several salads. The garden salad was delicious also! We will definitely be back again.

Great Food Bad Service
Had a wonderful meal with friends. We liked the limited choices on the menu as the food was executed perfectly. The drinks were amazing and great play on classics. I loved the Frisky Sour. I do not typically enjoy a sirloin as they tend to be lean, but tasted the difference at Grass Fed. My wife's chicken thighs over grits was delicious. Trying to enjoy the last few days of good weather we sat outside. Not sure why but we had horrible service. The server was nice, but it took way to long to get a 2nd beer (bottled) and he was very un-attentive.

A little piece of Greenwich Village
Grass Fed was adorable and the food was well executed! We felt like we were in Greenwich Village by the classic charm and look of this restaurant. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious and we will be returning! We wish we had a Grass Fed near Old Town!

One of the best burgers around
I was just looking for an easy mid-week spot to dine with my mother and we chose this place based mostly on convenience. The chopped salad and butternut squash soup were good, but the burgers are phenomenal. I asked for the burger medium-rare and I ACTUALLY GOT a medium-rare burger. The pretzel bun, the arugula, the fries--were just the perfect balance of "extras" and burgers. Too often I find all the "additives" put on burgers force you to lose the actual taste of the burger, but this place knows exactly how much to put on the burger.
The presumed owner/server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I would easily go back for another burger tomorrow.
