    This is a terrific local favorite; very good comfort food and wonderful brunch options. It's a little too noisy when you're dining inside for easy conversation which really isn't a problem if the weather is nice and you're dining outside. I'd definitely recommend this spot for getting together with friends.

    We just moved to the area and wanted to give Feast a try. Although our food, drink, and the ambiance were great the service was severely lacking and not even handled well by a manager. The bartender was the only person in the establishment with any sort of hospitality. Unsure if we will go back due to this experience...

    I love Feast but the services this past time was terrible and really left me feeling like I wouldn't return. Sad because they have a great menu, but the service was terrible. We waited almost 30 minutes for anyone to come to our table and then another 30 to get our drinks and then another 45 minutes to get our food, which came out wrong. The restaurant was not that busy so there really wasn't an excuse. I am hoping that the service get's better, but till then, I won't be going.

    My wife and I tried feast for the first time and were quite happy we made the visit. All our food was really tasty. We loved the hot dates and the calamari appetizers. The ravioli and the chicken entrees were also excellent. The service was friendly and professional. Sitting outside on the side patio was an added treat. We will definitely return and will recommend it to our friends as well.

    My friends and I ate here during a recent trip to Chicago and we had wonderful meals! The wonton, guacamole, and goat cheese crostini appetizers were to die for! The mussels had mixed reviews. I ordered the chicken breast with gnocchi and goat cheese for dinner and loved it! The steak tortilla salad and black bean burger entrees were OK according to my friends. The butternut squash ravioli was also a favorite. Overall, I had a very good experience here. It was slightly pricey, but worth it.

    My husband and I visit Chicago often. He goes there monthly for his job. We had been trying to have dinner with our niece and her husband for sometime now. This was the first time it worked out. We went to Feast on their suggestion, and were not disappointed. The menu had a good selection. We were also able to take advantage of purchasing a bottle of wine half off. That was a bonus. I would definitely go there again.

    We were 3 of us and ordered bruschetta to share, butternut squash ravioli, maple glazed pork chop, blackened fish tacos. The portions were big and he food tasted good. But there was no oomph factor which will make me go back again, specially given that it was expensive. For instance, the pork chop was nicely seasoned and beautifully cooked and moist from inside but it was served with standard sides. There isn't much to complain, just didn't seem so exciting after all. My taco filling and sides were very nice as well, but the tortillas were drying out and becoming hard to eat. Maybe it would be better to serve the tortillas separately. For dessert we ordered a red velvet cheesecake - big portion and divine. Also the zinfandel was amazing!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We started with a special, the scallop appetizer and a beet salad to share. Both were a great start. They were both tasty and fresh. The scallops were particularly good and very original. I ordered the butternut ravioli, one girlfriend ordered the pork chop and the other the salmon. The pork chop was a bit overlooked but was super tasty. It came with a side of sweet potatoes that were way too sweetened too eat. I didn't try the salmon but my friend liked it. My butternut squash ravioli was way too sweet. It was drenched in maple syrup and seemed more like something that should have been served at brunch. I couldn't eat it. The server was very apologetic and brought us a free dessert. Even she could see the irony in that.

    Wonton appetizer was to die for! The group of us enjoyed the ambiance and the energy of the restaurant. Quite a few kids running around which was a bit distracting but that isn't the restaurants fault, more the parents.. however the restaurant shouldn't hesitate to speak up if it's bothering the other diners. Large portions so feast is a feast. We walked away stuffed but it was delicious from start to finish. Great food, great wine, great service.

    We arrived at 2:45 and were seated right away. The menu was inadequate for a brunch but we did decide on the lamb which is one of my favorites. We were then informed they were out of the lamb so I decided on some breakfast food which I could have had at any corner restaurant for a lot less. As we were eating our breakfast not only did the employees bring out their own meals, they sat all around us and to my surprise at least half of them had lamb on their plates. When I questioned the waitress she said it was the scrapes of the lamb they couldnt serve. It was clearly nice slices of lamb and not scrapes. I will never be going back to that restaurant again and I will never recommend it to anyone I know.

    We went fro Easter Brunch thinking it would be more of a fine restaurant serving brunch, but it turned out to be just a casual brunch place. The food was alright but not worth the $20 pre fixe price we paid for the holiday (essentially eggs and coffee with free rolls). The omelette was rubbery and filled with chopped sausage links. Seemed to be missing some chef's pride. Spinach and asparagus side was more tasty than the seafood cakes it came with. Our server was peppy and friendly and the crowd was polite and eclectic. Looked to be very kid friendly, but we were just two adults. Felt like someone else's party. It was simply more casual than I was expecting.

    Feast never disappoints -- whether we go here for a pizza at the bar on Fri nite or for Easter brunch, it is always excellent. Service was good, the food was excellent (I had one of the brunch specials, a phyllo egg dish and my husband had the short ribs / potatoes dish), and the food also came out quickly. We had reservations for our brunch and we were seated immediately with service from out waiter within 5 minutes of sitting. I am always impressed with Feast and so glad that it's in my neighborhood!

    The Chicken breast was divinity and the chorizo-stuffed dates were delicious! I could barely stand after eating, I was so full but because I basically wanted to lick my plate clean. The service, I believe Emma, was really good at keeping her cool (it was 9 on St Patty's day) but the restaurant was fairly calm and not too noisy. My partner enjoyed the pork chop and we both loved sipping Racer 5s (great beer selection). I hope we can eat outside here soon, we'll definitely be back.
