Bread & Wine Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
My friend and I have started coming here on a regular basis. The food is amazing! Just when I think I have tried everything on the menu, the chef is coming up with something new. I usually don't venture out of my comfort zone when it comes to food, but I will when I eat here. I can't wait for my next visit which is scheduled before I leave.
The food is great for dinner and brunch. They also make awesome cocktails! They have awesome deals to take advantage of during the week too (from their front page http://breadandwinechicago.com/):

I am horrible at actually writing reviews but of course I use them profusely in deciding where to dine. Bread and Wine has forced me to add a review.
We went for a late brunch on Valentine's Day with two kids. It was bit more than half full which probably helped keep the noise level down.
The food was outstanding, as was the service! I had the classic fry up which had country ham, homemade breakfast sausage, house cured bacon, fried eggs, hash browns. Everything was cooked perfectly and the sausage had a great zing to it. My wife had the crispy semolina gnocchi with poached egg, braised cabbage, rosemary hollandaise. It was delicious. Kids went with the cinnamon roll and pancakes with a side of bacon and hash browns. The hash browns are insanely good! They are shoe-stringed with carmelized onions and perfectly crisp and not too salty. They were so good the kids ordered a second side, giving them a third chance to disappoint as mine came with hash brown side, and they were just as good as the other two. We can't wait to go back.
I wasn't sure what to expect but Bread & Wine certainly provided a great experience in terms of both the food and the wine. The menu was well thought out with enough choices to satisfy many palates. Prices were reasonable and the food was creatively prepared. The wine list was approachable with some decent values. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Noise level was high but they have a parking lot. My only real complaint was the chairs. They look cool but not so comfortable after a while. Try Bread & Wine.
I went with a eight of my nearest and dearest to try it out. We tried EVERYTHING on the menu and all of it was dynamite! Nice selection, great flavors and the service was stellar. To drink I had the #80, and I will forever be trying to replicate that deliciousness. The panna cotta dessert is delightful and dreamy goodness. So glad I tried trout for the first time there, I will probably compare all future plates to that one with parsnip blinis - yum!!!
