Sprout - Chicago
Love how they blend flavors!We were in a bit of rush to go to the reception! The service was at first slow but once we let the host know they were amazing about getting our food to us! The food itself was delightful! I've never had such great flavors blended together! We started with the licorice salad which was delicious and I got the halibut which came in the most amazing coconut broth! I'd definitely come here again!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSproutAmazing dinning expereince. I love the staff. They were friendly and not over bearing. Cocktails were amazing and selection of wines. I ordered the Rabbit and it was good but it wasn't fantastic. I think it was to many flavors and the rabbit alone tasted kind of bland. Octupus Salad right on awesomeness. choclate desert was to die for. Just my main course fell short, not to say i didn't eat everything on my plate anyways :)6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodExceptionally well prepared food with an obvious professional touch, these are not dishes you could ever hope to replicate at home. Wine pairings were good but not great. Service the night we dined seemed a little off as there were long spans of time between courses causing our total dining time to top 2.5 hours. All of the intermezzo courses were pleasant surprises, except for the "grilled" cheese which was a tad heavy. All in all, an enjoyable experience, with a few corrections this could easily become a favorite.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary DinnerWe went to Sprout for our anniversary and had a great experience. All of our food was very good; the halibut was stop-the-presses amazing. The music was a wee bit loud. Our server Lisa was excellent. Thanks Sprout!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!Had the prix fixe menu with wine pairings. Good sized portions and sufficient wine pours. Sauces were delicious and very complimentary to all courses. Flavors were well matched and balanced. Ample ingredients without being over the top or pretentious.
Our server, John, was very knowledgeable and explained each dish quite well. Nice steady pace to service.
Overall, very nice dining experience. Will definitely go again.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingSprout was great , I went there with my wife for our anniversary and it was a great experience, good food , good service at the right orice5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMone of the best dollar for dollarI've eaten at a lot of places in Chicago. though I love a good dive and a nice, simple local place, I've also been to more than my share of tasting menus. Sprout is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in Chicago in terms of value. certainly, dollar for dollar it's one of the best places to try a tasting menu. the food and service are usually both outstanding. I've never had anything less than a very good experience. and I love the atrium-like room.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good andThe food is very good and somewhat experimental. Everything is cooked perfectly. We have been there several times and it is never as crowed as I would hope - would be good to have a bit more energy. The service is very professional and friendly and it has a very welcoming atmosphere. Although the food is exceptional, you can go in wearing nice jeans / casual clothers and still feel very welcome.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchOur first visit to Sprout was a memorable one. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. On the pricey side, so more of a celebration destination. Our server was well spoken and friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMquite simply the most inventive,quite simply the most inventive, delightful food in chicago. each new bite made us giggle with pleasure.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMYum TownWine and cocktails were great and paired well with the food. The service was excellent as our servers were attentive and knowledgable, but not overbearing. The food, however, was the true highlight of the evening. It was clean, fresh, and tasty. I would highly recommend heading to Sprout for a nice night out of delicious food and beverage.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMust Try!First time in Chicago and first restaurant we tried - were not disappointed. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice evening experience, especially good for romantic evenings and special occasions. The food was delicious and well presented and the ambiance was perfect for our birthday date/dinner.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I eat at SproutEvery time I eat at Sprout I am rewarded with a diverse and exciting menu and exceptional service. My boyfriend and I have dined here a number of times since its opening, and we frequently recommend it to our friends and family. The Prix Fixe menu has something for everyone and the cheese course may be the best course I've ever eaten-- it remains the same each time for a reason. Go here. Eat. Enjoy.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMToo bad there were only 3Too bad there were only 3 table filled, but a wonderful dining experience4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful meal. CreativeDelightful meal. Creative menu that focuses on flavor and quality ingredients. The presentation and the pairings are lovely and never move off into "food theater" like so many others do. I look forward to returning.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSprout is fantastic. GreatSprout is fantastic. Great wine selection. Excellent food. Nice little surprises with the tasting menu. The only negative was their signature grilled cheese which is far too greasy and heavy to substitute for a cheese course. If I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich I'd go to a diner.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, different food.Delicious, different food. Love the 3 course dinner where you have lots of things to choose between - something for everyone. Some of the food is a bit rich, but all of the flavors are wonderful. Very fairly priced for the high level of food and experience. We were there for almost 3 hours and no one rushed us. Everyone was very nice.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved EverythingI really enjoyed my dining experience here....we had a tasting menu. The food was exquisite (separate dishes for each of us too) and every dish was explained....the salad was amazing...best ever. The dessert was exquisite. The only wierd thing was the grilled cheese and cider tasting...little odd placement in the order3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMChef's TableWe were a party of six and offered the Chef's Table. It made the experience incredible. The food was excellent and the room is gorgeous.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Plan to Return with FriendsThe dinner, wine, service and ambiance were all top notch. We took the recommendation of our waiter to have the Pre Fixe menu with the Wine Pairing, and he was absolutely right. In addition to the explicit first course, entre and desert of personal choice, the extra intermezzo present between each selection was a wonderful culinary surprise.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerhaps our expectations werePerhaps our expectations were too high. The meal was excellent in every regard but fell short of a "once in a lifetime" experience. Certainly worthy of a recommendation, particularly for the "foodie" type.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceNot only was the food delicious, but the experience was remarkable! Can not wait to go back!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe absolutely love Sprout.We absolutely love Sprout. We have been there several times before, but we hadn't been there in more than a year. It was so good to come back! The flavor combinations that Chef Dale comes up with are amazing. I wish I could try more things on the menu. We'll be back again soon.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed! We loveNever disappointed! We love this place every time we go. The creativity of the food, the flavors, and the service are all wonderful.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious gourmet food inDelicious gourmet food in a relaxed, yet stylish setting. Love the element of surprise in ordering a dish, in which you're only aware of 4 ingredients. Venison and duck were outstanding! Cocktail with tequila, mescal, and chocolate is great. Love the enclosed courtyard!1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMelegant delicious foodsmall and cozy restaurant. wonderful beautiful food. little quiet but very knowledgeable staff and friendly.11/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
