Everything we ordered was delicious, and the chicken liver pate on the charcuterie menu was fantastic. Great wine list, friendly and helpful staff. On my list of favorites on the north side now.

Our experience was ok. In the beginning, it felt weird because it was kind of empty and no one paid attention to us. Then, the waiter came 15 minutes later and he was really nice. The food wound up being great. It was a bit pricey for what it was and how non busy it was. But overall the food was great quality and the portions were good. We will go back

Perhaps I expected too much, but the quality of the food did not measure up to my expectations. It was good, but not outstanding. Definitely not worth the high prices. The service was excellent. I found the chairs to be very uncomfortable. The music is too loud.

Outstanding food with great service! We had the GF chicken fried chicken, the grass fed burger and streak frites. Everything was delicious. For dessert I recommend the Salted Caramel Popcorn Panna Cotta. Oh. Em. Gee. I wanted to bathe in it. Outstanding!

We went on a Wednesday night and sat outside. Wasn't too crowded. They were out of the first two wines we ordered, but the cocktails we ended up with were good. Food was delicious, but options were very limited for non-meat eaters.

Our first visit since the executive chef and kitchen staff changes and we loved it as much as always! Thanks for always delivering spectacular food with an easy neighborhood vibe.

The food was excellent. The service was very professional. Our server was knowledgable about the menu and wine list and made excellent recommendations. We will definitely go back to experience the next season's menu.

I was there for brunch this time and it was fabulous. I had the seasonal omelette. My husband had the chicken and pancakes. We both cleaned our plates. We will definitely be going back soon.

I've been here several times and they never disappoint. Be sure to request the Chef Table/Counter Top so you can watch the chefs while they prepare your food. You can have a free show while you eat! The chefs are extremely nice and as long as they're not too busy, they're happy to answer questions. The menu is always changing so be sure to come back during different seasons. They make almost everything in house but it's not too high brow. Great spot for people who prefer quality food and are willing to spend a little more to help a local establishment.

Had reservations for Sunday brunch on 5/15. We were seated promptly however I wish I could say the same about the service which was slow, non attentive and lackadaisical . The menu is limited and food is fair. There are too many other great brunch places in the city to waste your time at Bread and Wine.

This place is off the beaten path but one of the best restaurants in Chicago. It is the stuff of dreams. Free parking a bonus. Truly remarkable
