A word from Reverie - Chicago
Born from an impractical idea that sports and great food can exist under one roof. No, we’re not just a bar. No, we’re not just a restaurant. Reverie is both. Built on the principle that good company and great service can slow down your day, even if only for a few hours. Different days call for different remedies, different dreams. Seal the business deal over lunch, catch up with your friends over dinner and cocktails, or melt away the week in our upstairs lounge. This is our daydream; what’s yours?

    We had five people from work go to lunch on a weekday. It was not crowded, we got seated right away by a very nice hostess. The service was very slow -- long time to place the order, long time to get food, and long time to get our check. 90 minutes for lunch - not good.

    The environment at Reverie is a happening bar/restaurant the really has some components of a sports bar. The food options is wide from sushi to burgers and all items on the menu are described as being produces with a top chef in the kitchen. Went to Reverie after the Bears game with my wife and another couple, the service was outstanding, food was delicious and the environment is one we want to check out for the evening crowd. Definetely returning to Reverie!

    Reverie has a good menu with plenty of healthy choices, prepared and presented with care. The vegetable preparations and the sushi, in particular, look really good. I had the burger, which was done to my satisfaction. The sauce, however, was too sweet, cloying the rest of the sandwich. The beer selection was very good. I will definitely return.

    Deafening sound almost drowned out the sloppy service. Overpriced drinks, mediocre small plates, unambitious shushi rolls. This is really just a big TV sports bar..pretending to be a restaurant.

    We went here with 7 people after my daughter ran the marathon. It was delicious. Very different menu. Also, they offered $10 bottle of champagne with fresh oj for mimosas and peach puree for bellinis. Best deal in town. We had so much fun!!

    We couldn't have been more delighted. This may be a sports bar/restaurant but the service was impeccable, well-informed, professional and friendly. The menu has options from bar appetizers to impressive entrees like Chilean Sea Bass ; with everything from sushi rolls, burgers, lobster sliders, and yummy salads in-between. The food was excellent. We loved the sliders, harvest salad and spinach-artichoke in a bread box appetizer. Our waitress Elle was so helpful, attentive, and knowledgable about the menu items and wine selection. We felt welcomed and well cared for by everyone from host to busboys. We warmly welcome Reverie to our neighborhood, we plan to be regulars!

    Valet parking was not obvious (you definitely want to valet $11) and used street metered parking (thanks for ticket for 6 min over City of Chicago)but other than that this was a great dining experience.

    I took a friend out who recently had a baby for a mama's night out. We had a fantastic time and sampled many of the craft cocktails and some of the appetizer/small plates and rolls. The food was fantastic and our server, Lauren, was very attentive and personable. Reverie is a beautiful space and a great spot to enjoy a girls night out that I plan to frequent with friends!

    I stopped in for lunch with a colleague and we both ordered the scallop special which was fantastic. The portion looked small but it was very filling and every bit was delicious. We were in and out within the hour without feeling rushed. I would definitely come back to try some of their other menu items.

    This was our first visit to Reverie. Everything we ordered was fantastic, from start to finish. The crispy brussel sprouts and kale was a real surprise. We enjoyed it so much, the chef sent us another order - no charge! We also shared the Ahi Tuna Pokstada." It was cut into four servings, but each of us would have been happy to order our own. For dinner, the Brass Monkey was a big hit. One person in our group was brave enough to order the eel dish, Crispy Rice 2.0, and loved it. The double patty burger was plenty for the men in our group. I enjoyed the Mushroom Melt - make sure you ask for avocado on yours - YUM! We split a warm bread pudding. Just enough for 6 people to get 2 tastes each. I recommend Reverie; request Scott.

    Was hoping for good local "go to" spot. Turns out food is a little more clever than really great. And those televisions do little for atmosphere. Will return to try a few more things. But not optimistic on atmosphere.

    Excellent brunch experience with a group of 10. Great variety of food (eggs, salads, sandwiches, sushi) and very attentive staff. We closed out our tab but opened another because it was such a great experience. Will definitely be going back. Often.

    First time to Reverie and we loved it. We tried 7 different small plates...tongue twister, nacho fries, brussel sprout salad, mushroom melt sandwich, etc. All were excellent. Service was amazingly attentive, friendly, approachable. There is a good vibe in the restaurant. Loud enough, but you can still hear a conversation without needing to shout. Good music. Good IPA beers. The upper level looks amazing for drinks and people watching. We will definitely go back.

    I showed up with a group of friends for a reservation at 7pm on a Saturday night. It was pretty empty with a few people sitting at the bar and a few booths filled. It was a beautiful night so we were sat a booth by the open windows which was lovely. My friends and I had decided to have a slow, family style kind of dinner where we ordered a few dishes at a time and shared everything. After our first round of appetizers (Ahi Tuna Pokstada & Spinach and Artichoke Trip, both wonderful and perfect size to share between four people) other guests started to show up, and after another half an hour the place was pretty hoppin'. Our food came out quickly, the sushi was great (Brass Monkey definite favorite) and the ambiance and service were great!
