Service was a little scatteredService was a little scattered but the food was excellent. Small, unusual menu but if you are up for an adventure and trying new tastes, check this place out for sure!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing foodEvery time I'm to Chicago dinner at Storefront is always a must. The food is some of the best I've had in any city and the ambiance is great. Everything from the cocktail list to the desserts is amazing. Highly recommend Storefront. Company.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEasily the best service I'veEasily the best service I've ever had in the neighborhood. Try to get a seat at the bar with a view of the open kitchen. When you order from the bib menu you'll receive your food directly from the chef with a brief explanation of the dish. Everything was delicious, perfectly proportioned and served with great wine pairings. We will definitely be going back soon.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Our second visit was just like the first...everything just terrific.
It all starts with the friendly greeting when you arrive and continues with the attentive and informative dining room staff.
The food is creative and tasty., we simply haven't sampled anything we didn't enjoy. The wine list is modest, but well chosen selections are aplenty.
This is simply one of our favorite spots in Bucktown.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall portions but extremely tastyAlso, very well presented and served with attention. The wine list is small and wines are expensive (eg not a single Cabernet Sauvigon under $100). Everything else, perfect. We just came back from 6 yrs in Europe (Madrid) and this place is par to the best ones over there.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly a dining experienceWe went to the Storefront Company on a Friday night and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff was charming and informative and they worked seamlessly. There were five of us, including my 60-some parents, and we sat in the back nook - the ambience was upbeat yet you had no trouble hearing conversation. It would also be a lovely date night. The food was truly a dining experience. Innovative parings, melt-in-your-mouth morsels of food. I cannot wait to go back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCocktails -- Good varietyCocktails -- Good variety and the bartender was very knowledgable & helpful. Food -- Wonderful. There was 6 of us for dinner and we tried to order different dishes so we could try them and every single one was amazing. Service -- One of the best I've received in a very long time. From the greeting by the host/hostess to the bartender to the wait staff, we were treated so graciously. Ambiance -- The restaurant is on the smaller side, but it doesn't feel small. The decor is very modern and clean, but warm. If you get the chance, sit at the bar and enjoy the show of the bartenders making interesting cocktails to the view of the open kitchen & what the chefs are doing. We would definitely go back again!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was surprisinglyThis restaurant was surprisingly more like a Michelin star restaurant than a bib gourmand. We did the chefs tasting menu. You must sit at the bar counter if you would like to do that (so if you're interested, request to sit there when you make your reservation). They had run out of a few things that had been listed on the menu and made substitutions (we were only informed of one ahead of time and the 2 occurred). The foods were well presented - delicate and ornate. Some parts were hit of miss. The make shift items seemed sort of thrown together rather than the composed dishes one expects at that level. The desserts were well done and creative. I loved cracking into the meringue to get to an ice cream center.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMStorefront Company...um, yes!Impeccable service and delectable dishes in a creative, urban chic ambience. Great libations and quality, reasonably priced wine list.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat staff, friendly. TheyGreat staff, friendly. They remember you from time to time. Great treats on the way out.

The service alone is worth a visit.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and good serviceGreat food and good service made this night one to remember.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly pleased with StorefrontHighly pleased with Storefront Company - would most definitely recommend! The food, service and ambiance were exceptional. Highlight items: lamb meatballs, european cheese plate, kabocha squash, antelope. Will definitely be going back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinner. It was notLovely dinner. It was not very crowded, but enjoyable for a Tuesday evening. The Arugala salad was terrific, and the rolls are yummy.
Their wine by the glass is a small pour, but they have nice choices.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing and reallyFood was amazing and really enjoyed the overall ambiance and black and white decor with the pop of red flowers on table and colorful food. The only downside was the unusually slow service when it seemed to be sufficiently staffed and not overly crowded. Will definitely be returning!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWell Done!Had a great experience on all levels. Food was amazing and the service friendly and attentive but not over done. Looking forward to my next dinner here! Well Done!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved how attentive andI loved how attentive and helpful the staff was. As soon as you enter, they make you feel welcome and cater to you. The cocktails are great and pair well with the menu. All the food was top quality, well prepared and presented. It is great if you are feeling a little adventurous and willing to try new things. An excellent fun night out.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time we'veThis is the second time we've been there and have been truly impressed each time. The dishes are inventive and have a lot of flavors coming together in a very balanced combination. Great job!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a Gilt City voucherI had a Gilt City voucher and we could pick one item from the "share" section. . we chose the deviled eggs -- unlike any deviled egg you've had and so absolutely delicious!! Then my husband had the egg white omelette which he liked very much and I had a lamb ragu dish on polenta with a fried egg on top. . .all melted together into a very yummy dish. I also ordered the pork belly side but I didn't really care for that --- wish I had tried the cheddar biscuits! Next time. . .plus I want to try to ricotta and lemon pancakes and about 10 other things. The decor is also really interesting. And Jenn, our waitress was spot on perfect! She was great with suggestions (like the blood orange mimosas -- OMG!) and always there for us.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
