676 Restaurant focuses on using ingredients from Midwest and local farmers whenever possible. The fare is approachable, organic and sustainable - local food treated the way it was intended. Chef accentuates the food selection with an ever changing selection of hand-made house charcuterie, honey from his own hive, produce from rooftop gardens located on the sundeck at the Omni Chicago Hotel and pork from the exclusive Acorn Edition IV pig out of Norwalk, Iowa. Chef and his culinary team’s dishes will bring back memories of fishing from the dock for bluegill, hunting game in the north woods, summers spent picking apples from the orchard trees hoping not to get caught and standing in awe at the plethora of jarred food under grandma’s basement stairs. That is the Midwest. That is 676. With unparalleled views of Chicago’s famous Magnificent Mile, this unique restaurant experience is augmented with rustic touches, communal plates and a bit of nostalgia of the foods you remember as a kid.

The Breakfast Buffett always is fantastic. I have frequented this restaurant every time I travel to Chicago even when not staying at the Omni. Always top quality of fresh fruit, made to order omelet or eggs. The prosciutto and cheese and fresh bread is great with freshly made spreads for bread ...salmon spread, corn salsa etc...
The view of Michigan Avenue is great.
Ordering off menu also does not fail to be fantastic
The staff are very attentive and professional with a smile. Thank you David for your kindness!!

Have been here several times and food and service always excellent. We were here at 11 on a Sunday which was their brunch menu but on request they gave us their lunch menu also. They don't rush you and the place is conversation friendly.

My husband, daughter, & I celebrated a long day of moving into her new apt after a cross-country move from NYC. We couldn't have chosen a more ideal restaurant. Service was exceptional & unobtrusive, the food memorable (loved the seared scallops, the 6 oz. filet was very tasty), the setting elegant & quiet. We didn't have cocktails or dessert, but I'm sure you won't be disappointed with any selection.

Food is sourced locally when possible and many of the sources are noted in the menu. It makes the quality of the food superb and the preparations are well done and nicely presented. Servers are knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The salmon salad was an excellent choice.

Yes, very nice, but not over the top. Not crowded. Food was good. A bit pricy, but not too bad. We are always looking for new area restaurants for business lunch meetings and this is close to LUC and Northwestern.

The extra charges for juice, coffee added to an entree was excessive. For the cost, the value of the meal was not worth it. Great valet and discount for parking.

Overall a good experience, Food was well prepared and presented nicely, our waiter was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was enjoyable and not too loud. Just a few distractions from our visit that prevents it from being rated higher: they were in the process of updating their menu, so unfortunately the 2 items on the menu that I was looking at for dinner were not available, and not made known until our order was being placed.
Dinner specials were offered, but not the associated pricing - making some in our party uncomfortable to ask and not want to order the specials. Aside from those critical items, I would return again for an enjoyable meal.

Restaurant week dinner, great experience. We’ve done this a couple of years now and keep going back. The charcuterie and first course were outstanding, I highly recommend the tomato soup and grilled cheese. The main courses were a bit bland, hence 4 stars. The big change this year, literally and figuratively was the desert. Huge chocolate cake slice which almost killed me. I loved it.

Very nice environment. Food was superb. Although it was Chicago Restaurant Week which offered special menu, I ordered a la carte. Deviled eggs was a good-sized appetizer with a tiny rash of bacon and salmon roe on the boiled egg (egg yolk was separately seasoned with salt and dill).

The entrees I picked the pick of the season: pheasant! Great taste and great size. Pan fried pheasant with pear which can reduce the grease feeling. What a good combination.

I eat at 676 last year for dinner around New Years and had a terrible meal and service but I would recommend this restaurant for brunch. The service was good, they have good coffee, and the food was tasty as well. I did think that $25 per plate for brunch was a little expensive. All in all this was a good experience.

Terrible “walleye” which I am reasonably sure wasn’t walleye. Terrible strange smoky flavor and gummy texture. Awful. To their credit, they credited the amount of the “fish” and provided a free dessert. But honestly awful meal. I won’t be back

Uninspired menu that still said "Spring/Summer 2017 in December??? Consider that AND they were "out" of their pasta entree which was one of the 6 or so offered makes one wonder how well they are doing? Service staff was knowledgeable, helpful and professional.

Restaurant smelled like a deep fryer (and so did our clothes after dining). The appetizers were good, we had the deviled eggs and bacon wrapped dates, but the mushroom risotto wasn't properly cooked and the smoked chicken was average at best.

And, although the restaurant was fairly empty, it took forever to get our check.

I was disappointed in what I would call a very limited menu for lunch. Hamburger, chicken salad....almost all sandwiches in a time when many people are avoiding carbs and gluten.
The charcuterie array we sampled was ok but uninspiring. I was expecting more creativity and more options. I can get very good hamburgers and chicken salad for much less money. Oh and they left the sugar cube out of my champagne cocktail ....one of the things I like best about a classic champagne cocktail is the increasing sweetness as you drink it

We had the cheese and charcuterie which had inventive selection and pairings with spreads which elevated the excellent quality. Would order again. The lamb was perfection! If you love perfectly seasoned and cooked lamb chops, Go Here! The restaurant side is more elegant and romantic but still comfortable while you can catch the game on TV on the bar side. We went early to catch a show afterwards and service was efficient yet non-obtrusive.

We enjoyed the avocado gazpacho, the tapas iberco ham wrapped dates stuffed with manchego, and the pork tenderloin as well as the beef short ribs. They accommodated my gluten free request and provided options for desert. I selected the deconstructed whipped cheesecake with strawberry jam (delicious) on the bottom. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. The window view was great with practically floor to ceiling windows.

We used 676 for a during dinner rehearsal for a business presentation we had to give the next day. The staff was very accommodating in putting us in a quiet spot and the service was amazing in how they kept the table clear of clutter so we could spread out our laptops and notes. Well done 676!! Thanks.
