    Food was amazing, I had the beef tacos which I would say is probably one of my favorite meals I have had in the city, would come back just to order those. My boyfriend ordered the chicken Bebe, which was delicious but wish it came with a carb. This was why I didn’t give 5 stars for value. Overall, highly recommend, good food, good drinks, good vibe of restaurant overall.

    -The brussel sprouts were awesome -Our waiter was snarky and afflicted with a compulsion to “manage” us even though we lack a disposition to stay anywhere for long. At one point, I asked him for a napkin, because mine had fallen off my lap and seized without notice and he brought me a solitary tissue he would not even have considered for his dying grandma and then made a quip when I asked for a restaurant napkin; -the restaurant is still SCAMMING customers by charging EVERYONE a 4% unidentified service charge, that when you inquire about, they report is to “assist” employees impacted by COVID-19, despite initially and reportedly creating the surcharge, by their own words, “for pick-up and online orders” even though we sat down among 1000 diners without masks and MORE. In total, it forces us to beg the question: HAS “LETTUCE ENTERTAIN YOU” become too big? In fact, so big that “defiance” is no longer distinguishable between doing what is right or making them (us, the consumer) what are told?? The entity has not even responded or justified, made evident by an aloof waiter distracted by managing us out, why the surcharge still exists. In fact, if he had been slightly more attentive to our needs than to the manager that chased around like a cat on a hot tin roof, he wouldn’t depicted in the objective and truthful representation you have mulled through here. In short, they should get it together, before losing it altogether.

    Every appetizer was truly divine, don’t even get me started on the deep fried lemons in the fries or the avocado ceviche… so good! I had the beef barbacoa tacos and the meat was truly tender and copious; I did need to ask for more tortillas but that’s a good problem to have. I’d prefer not to have been sat half at a super low couch since I felt like a kid at the table but otherwise wonderful meal!

    Wonderful gluten free options. It was a hot day and we were there for brunch. We sat inside and it was surprisingly cool even with all the doors and windows open. Highly recommend the fresh squeezed juices. My party ordered the Straight A salad with chicken, the hot chicken sandwich and the tuna poke bowl. We were all pleased. Great place overall!

    Waited 10 minutes for the sever to come to the table. Asked for ice water twice and never got it. It was super hot inside. The fish in the fish tacos were so over cooked that they were almost hard. Waited so long I ate it anyway. Begrudgingly tipped well because I know service workers work hard, but really didn’t want to.

    It was pretty empty for a 12 pm reservation but we still waited about 15 minutes after our reservation start time to be seated by a hostess. Once seated, the waiter immediately came up and asked what we want to order, not even introducing himself or saying hello or allowing us time to even scan the QR Code. I ordered the fish tacos which came out quite quickly and to my surprise I had to build my own tacos… which wouldn’t have been a problem if they stated that on the menu. They were also $25 for 3 tiny tacos I had to build. A bit disappointed in that and wished I ordered something else. The main reason I am giving such a low rating is that there were 3 birds flying around inside the restaurant. One of the birds touched my friends head. It was pretty gross. Place seems really fancy but I don’t know if I’ll be back. They also add 3% gratitude to your bill without warning.

    The place is cozy, beautifully decorated. Service is attentive and diligent. Food was awesome! We had breakfast that included: power green juice, cappuccino, lemon yogurt, avocado toast, egg, ham, and cheese sandwich, and baked French toast, as well as some pastries. Everything was delicious, fresh, over the top plates. Pricing is as expected for downtown Chicago. Will definitely go back!

    Generally speaking, this is a good dining spot; but there were a few things that dampened the experience. We found our server unfriendly, and she give us the feeling that it was our privilege to be there. Maybe that is the vibe they are striving for; but it is off-putting. our server rushed us through ordering and our meal. The espresso was cold, but the rest of the food was good. Like I said, it’s an overall good dining spot.
