Best restaurant in Chicago! Impeccable service, wonderful atmosphere and amazing food and wine.
Wait to be seated was annoying when there were tables available, but server was great. Great food with unique, cozy vibe
The food was amazing!
I had the 6oz steak and it was perfect.
A friend had the duck, it was served cold so he was worried about it... well once we tasted it, OHMYGoodness!! AMAZING!
The drinks were great! I highly recommend his restaurant
Bavettes is THE best steak place in Chicago. Period.
The steak was overcooked and not seasoned week
We always love Bavette’s. They have changed the menu a tad. Best burger! Was able to get the salmon the way we like it! Brussels sprouts were amazing. The broccoli was not good and usually a fav. Will skip it next time. Also we sat downstairs and it was hard to hear everyone at the booth and a cold draft kept blowing on us.
The overall experience was okay. The food was great the atmosphere was great, but the service was unprofessional. It was my birthday I was turning 29 and I had a party of six black females. Upon ordering our food it went well one of my friends didn't have a liking for the chicken ,but because the kitchen was closing I'm assuming and they weren't serving anymore hot food had we were told; she wasn't able to reorder anything. Also a woman came out and asked her would she like to take the food home also saying would you like" hot sauce" with with it to go. A very unprofessional comment I guess assuming that we were black females we like hot sauce with our chicken. I don't think I will be returning to this place although the food was delicious and savory I will not be coming back.
Great service. No better steak in town!
Incredibly impressed with both the ambiance and food. A lot of times many restaurants will provide one or the other really well, but this one provides both. The food was incredible and the restaurant is top-notch. If you’re ever in Chicago, I would highly recommend this place. The pictures of the restaurant online are good, but still do it justice as to how amazing it is inside the place.
Server was amazing. Food very very good. appetiter steak tartare was delicious. Rib eyes best in long time. Overall worth a visit
Great all around. Ben was attentive and his suggestions were spot on and professional. Definitely recommend.
Outstanding food, excellent service. Noisy but that's to be expected in a large house. Expensive but not more so than most Chicago high end places. Worth the visit.
One of my favorite spots!
Amazing every time!
Best date night ever
Quite honestly, one of our best measls ever. Dry aged NY strip and bone-in filet were amazing, as was the corn, and home-made bread. Fantastic house-cured bacon tomato salad with arugula. Best chocolate creme pie in the world! An absolutely amazing experience. Can't wait to return.
My wife and I went here on a recommendation that Bavette’s was one of the best places for a steak. I received a text that my table was ready and arrived about 3 mins later, yet had to wait another 15 mins for a table. We ordered a bottle of wine while waiting but they didn’t offer to carry to the table. Little did we know that we were only going 5 feet to the worst table in the place. Not sure if this is a Chicago thing or not, but we ordered a $80 bottle of wine that retails for $25. That’s one hell of a markup!
Ordered garlic shrimp as an appetizer which was good. We shared the large ribeye and a couple sides. The steak came out cold and undercooked. If a steakhouse can’t cook a steak right that’s the only reason I need to never go there again. Ordered medium rare and got rare, cold red center. Steak was very tough and gristly, with very little flavor. Sides were good, but way too big and expensive for 2 people. Dessert was not good either. We ordered the chocolate cream pie. There was nothing creamy about it! It has a very hard thick texture and was so rich we couldn’t eat it. They were so kind to give us the dessert for free $7, to make up for the steak mix up.
I normally don’t review unless it’s really bad or really good. Well this place was really bad. The atmosphere and the look of the place was really nice and we were supper excited to eat here once we entered the space, but it went downhill from there. The place was full and not easy to get a reservation, so they must do something right but not sure what that is.
The best steakhouse in Chicago.
Pricey not much options for food. Service was awful.
Very nice place! Food & service is top notch.
Our first time, we found Bavettes to be lush, lively and romantic. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable and personable. A definite new favorite for my husband and I.
Awesone food, the best steak, nice service, good cocktails all are simple delicious!! 100% recommended!!
One of the best restaurant atmospheres in Chicago. Amazing food, great drinks. Service was perfect. Will be coming back soon.
The service and food at Bavette’s was indeed good. I feel as if the menu is definitely over priced. The ambiance downstairs was a little cramped in the beginning of our dinner as I wasn’t sure what to expect....I requested a romantic booth in my reservations. I made reservations about 5 weeks in advance and we still had to wait about 20 minutes before being seated. The server did a great job of answering our menu questions and added a great touch to dinner by bringing out a birthday treat desert. Overall I would recommend Bavette’s to a friend.
Easily one of the best meals I've ever had every time I go.
This was our second time at Bavettes and it we loved it even more this time. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. The crab cake as an appetizer is a MUST get for anyone who comes there. Our server was very friendly and overall an amazing experience.
everything was amazing
We love Babette’s! We had another great meal. Can’t wait to go back.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING..... Best Steak (Oscar'd) I have ever had. Everything was on point and delicious. I could cut my steak with a fork and let the melting flavors take over. The ambiance sultry, classy and very quiet. You were never talking loud over other people. Would return 100 times again. Thanks Chicago for this amazing jewel
Wonderful birthday dinner.
Superb service and delicious food.
Very good experience. Our only compliant was one server who reached across our guest to serve water on the opposite side of the table. Not good service etiquette.
Other than that: great food, great ambiance, good service.
We had an amazing time at the Bavette’s. From cocktails to the last bite. Highly recommend.
Bavette's was 5 stars - the ambience was gorgeous, low lighting and candles everywhere. Jazz music in the background (couldn't tell if it was live or not). There were four of us, and we chose 2 steaks, salad, fries & corn to share, in addition to the thick slabs of hot sourdough bread that we were served. Our server was knowledgable, helped us choose the steaks, and was attentive. Every bit of food was amazing. It took us many tries to get a reservation here, and we weren't disappointed!
We had a lovely evening. Our waiter was engaging and knowledgeable and the meal was outstanding. The restaurant is very dark and somewhat noisy but other than that, a wonderful choice.
One of the most delicious meals I’ve ever eaten. Steaks were cooked perfectly and the wine recommendation was incredible
It was greag
Nick is a superstar host
If you’re looking for a good steak, this is a place to have on your list. We both had the petit filet - it was cooked perfectly, but did not necessarily stand out above the other top Chicago steakhouses. What did standout was the crab cake and their sourdough bread. Both were fresh, memorable and delicious! Our experience was diminished a bit by our table - there was barely any room between the chair and the table and was right by the front door.
Worth the wait to get in this place. Dry aged steak was amazing!
Seemed very expensive this time
Must have been the drinks
Will be more cautious the next time
