    This restaurant had great service and good food, but when you make a reservation be sure to ask for seats that have cushion backs. The table that we set at had wood chairs with metal backs that were very uncomfortable.

    A friend recommended this wonderful find. Our waitress was very pleasant, helpful and spot on with recommendations. The "helping out bartender" was unreal. He whipped me up some magic potions, off menu. He even presented it to me at the table. The lamb Tagiatelle was amazing. My husband loved the trout. My son said the flat iron was Ok, not as great as the lamb. The flatbreads are out of this world. One thing left to say...Dark Chocolate Creme brulee! Go, go now.

    The food was amazing. We didn't get too creative with the drinks though it seemed like Wine Aficionados would be happy. She had the scallops, I had the Schnitzel. The breading on the schnitzel was so great. We also had the Bruschetta for an appetizer, also amazing. Our waiter seemed to know someone else there and was a bit distracted. We had to ask him for a couple things multiple times. The ambiance was very trendy. My date and I were celebrating a special occasion and had a romantic evening. A table on the other side of the restaurant was celebrating a birthday. They were loud, but because the setup was well laid out, we weren't bothered at all.

    We visited 1kept for the first time on Saturday night (party of 4). We arrived at 8:30 (the time of our reservations) and were told that the table wasn't quite ready. This was fine - there were seats at the bar, we got some drinks. However, we were kept waiting until 9:25 - nearly AN HOUR after our reservation time. To the hostess's credit, she did update us a couple of times while we were waiting. But 55 minutes with a reservation? And there weren't any other guests waiting. The food was good, although it's not a large menu and they were out of two of the entrees. Then there was a problem with the bill (an extra charge showing up - glad we checked!). I might try it again, but I won't go back if I have another ridiculous wait.

Delicious, unique food...the watermelon and feta flatbread was great, the breaded chicken amazing!!! Plus they had a great drink menu as well. And I loved the vibe of the place. A great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night. Can't wait to go back!!!

    First time at 1kept was a pleasant surprise all-around. Service was attentive and good. Menu provides ample selection yet each dish that arrived at our table was unique -- and resulted in a clean plate. The atmosphere is exactly what we wanted for our group to enjoy our conversation in a really cool non-traditional space. I'm not a restaurant-repeater but we'll go back!

    I have dined at 1Kept several times and it just gets better and better. The beet salad was excellent and the red fish hit all the right notes. I haven't had anything I didn't love. This is saying quite a lot because we drive from the far north suburbs to eat here.

    My wife and I recently had dinner at 1 Kept Kitchen and it was incredible. We had the deviled quail eggs, the shrimp salad as appetizers. Entrees were the trout and the NY strip, followed by desert of the banana pudding, and cheese cake. The meal was outstanding and everything we hoped it would be. I highly recommend this place for dinner.

    Such a great find. Food is amazing but the service even better. I've been twice and had Corey as my waiter. He remembered my name after my first visit which was two weeks apart and even recalled the wine I like. He was engaging with the new group I brought and made the experience so enjoyable. Spoke with Thaddius who also remembered me just after my first visit. That says a lot about customer service. Also, the entire wait staff chips in to help others which is nice. I highly suggest this place!

    Four of us enjoyed the excellent food and refreshing service at 1Kept. Flatbreads are good. Venison, flatiron steak, and pork tenderloin excellent. Two of us had eaten there before and had enjoyed the scallops. If you like red velvet, you must try the red velvet cheesecake. We will go again to try more items.

    This was our first time to 1Kept. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and took note of the very cool decor. The feeling of the restaurant was laid back and friendly but with an eagerness to make our experience an unforgettable one. Kate was our server and she was beyond awesome and friendly and very helpful in suggesting cocktails and menu items. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and her recommendations were spot on. The rest of the staff we interacted with during our stay were so friendly and pleasant. We tried a variety of apps and entrees and everyone was very satisfied with their choices. We left feeling as though we had just left a friend's house after a great dinner party. We will definitely be back very soon!

    Went to iKept with 5 other friends for a Valentine's Day hangout. Had never been before, and LOVED it. The drinks menu was fantastic (apple pie moonshine thing was AMAZING). The flatbreads were great (I'm not even a fan of mushrooms, or artichokes-- some of the ingredients on a couple of the flatbreads-- and I ended up still eating them, they were so good!). The entrees were perfect-- I had the scallops, which might have been the best scallops I've ever had. And dessert was quite good-- flourless chocolate cake looks like a small portion but I left the restaurant stuffed. Embience is cool, not too loud. All in all, a great find!

    Scooby Snacks - good, but chicken was a bit dry / Florentine Flat Bread - good, but nothing special (I think the mushrooms were canned mushrooms - fresh would make this better) / Fried Yellow Tail Bits - very good! Drinks were great (nice pour by the bartender!!) & ambiance was as well! Our server was nice, but a little pushy & persistent in trying to get us to order more food. We just wanted a relaxed dinner amongst friends with cocktails & bites - wasn't out for a 5 course meal.

    Friends and coworkers raved about this place. While it is young, chic, and modern, I ultimately judge a place by the food, and it was soooo disappointing. Kale salad was just ok. The scallop dish was a complete beige bowl of under-seasoned food. The steak dish was not cooked properly, with some chewy fries, and a charcoal-burnt sauce. Did not have a satisfying meal, but if you prefer a loud and vibrant scene better suited for large parties, this is your place. Service was good; seating was fast. Plenty of people will say it is fit for foodies, but we found the found marginal at best. Will not come back.

    Had dinner with my family the other night at 1Kept. What a fantastic experience. Great food served by a helpful team that met our needs but did not hover. THey made great recommendations to two of the guests in my party that made the evening even better. Flatbreads were a great way to begin, we all had different entrées that were enjoyed by everyone and finally dessert was outstanding - red velvet cheese cake for me. Thanks to the team for a great night.

    The old Toulouse has been removed and 1Kept did a great job bringing it very up-to-date and giving it a sleek, industrial look. We food was done very well even if it was slow to come to the table. Our waitress did not seem sincere in her concern for our enjoyment of the evening, but we enjoyed the place anyway. The food was done very well and we plan to return.

    We had reservations for a party of 9 and were seated immediately upon arrival. We waited almost 45 minutes for our meal and it took our server 30 minutes to let us know that the food was delayed. We then waited another 5 minutes for one of our party to receive her entree. There was also an issue with the ventilation so the front door was kept open and the outside temp was below 20 degrees. This created a draft so it was very cold at our table. No one ever came to our table to ask or address this. We never saw a manager and did not receive any compensation for these issues with our experience. Disappointing since I had read so many great things and took so many people to the restaurant.
