Frankie our waiter was very good in suggesting drinks, entrees, and desserts. Bleu cheese meatloaf was amazing.

Very few gluten free options despite the advertising. The server obviously did not know (or care to know) about dietary restrictions, and only checked after we had ordered and I reminded him again. The menu is different from the one on their website, which was also disappointing. Not going back.

Let me tell you about our waiter. His name was Chuck and the experience was great because of Chuck. Super funny, attentive and he was the added bonus this restaurant needed to make Valentine’s Day extra special. We tried some food that the restaurant normally doesn’t make, surf and turf. I don’t want this review to turn anyone away you should absolutely go here and eat, but I’m not sure I’ll be ordering anything off the speciality menu again. Ill be going back as long as Chucks our waiter.

Overall , everything was fine.
Some one needs to address the lighting in the central section of the restaurant. It was painful— too bright!!!!

1st time at this place. It was really busy so I would suggest reservations, especially for brunch. A bit loud because of the high ceilings but it was a good atmosphere for 2 people or 10 people. Bottomless mimosas are always a draw, only feedback is they pre-mix I to a pitcher so it wasn’t always cold and too much Oj. Looking forward to going back to try the lunch or dinner menu

Our first visit was a very pleasant surprise from start to finish. Nice menu for carnivores and vegetarians. Friendly atmosphere and good service. The wine list struck the perfect balance between offering a range of options without overwhelming. Staff was mindful of our dining time/theater time, helping us to enjoy both parts of the evening out. We are definitely going to return. Highly recommended.

Excellent, wide choice of items. The infusion of items to the main course was just right - not too overpowering, just a subtle hint. As an example, I had the bleu cheese meatloaf. Just the right amount of the bleu cheese. Great portion size - the green beans and mashed potatoes served with the meatloaf were fresh and obviously just made.

We had a terrific business meal, Prix Fix menu was 3 courses for $23 and wine pairings were wonderful. Five hearty scientists left completely satisfied, wonderful place to have a business discussion...can get noisy at times but Wednesdays are awesome.

My all time favorite restaurant for brunch! The staff is amazing, the food is amazing and the mimosas are also on point! I’ve been here many times and today was the one time i had a slight disappointment with the food. My eggs were cold in the benedict i ordered. Other than that everything was top notch per usual👍

Having been going there for several years. It's an excellent neighborhood restaurant where diverse groups of people gather. Their New Yr's Eve special meal was the best meal I've had in years. Their special meals offered, like $5 Hamburgers, or Wine Tasting dinners, are always top notch. The creative, efficient, friendly owners and staff keep us coming back!

My few girlfriends got together here for Sun brunch. Parking was a bit complicated but we all found spaces. We loved the $10 bottomless mimosas though they were mostly orange juice. It was nice that the wait staff walked around with pitchers refilling everyone's glasses. We all enjoyed our meals but our two gluten-free friends didn't have many options. I loved my egg and bbq beef burrito and my other non-gluten-free friend enjoyed her smoked salmon benedict. The place was definitely bustling so it's best to have a reservation (which we did). Oh, and we shared the biscuits and gravy, recommended by the waiter. Delish!

Wonderful meal with four friends, quiet and nice for serious conversation and for humorous stories. Warm and welcoming with live Jazz guitar on Tuesdays, their bar is really wonderful for a chill "step up" experience over most neighborhood places. Definitely reminds me of a classic wine bar, with creative cocktails and thoughtful beer selection. Not to be missed in Rogers Park.

This is my second time here. I went to brunch with the family that was in town. The service was really nice, they were all quite nice and the food was great. The portion sizes are large and filling - my sisters and mom had the crab cakes, which they said were more "wet" than they'd like, but everything else was really good. I can't wait to return for brunch with friends!

We were a group of twelve and every single member of our group raved about their experience at Broadway Cellars. Our server handled our group like a pro and everyone enjoyed their meal and cocktails, along with the reasonable pricing. Thank you for making our recommendation to eat here and dining pleasure for all. Happy Holidays!

This was my second visit and just as pleasant as the first. We both had the special, steak and frites. Expertly prepared with a delicious glazed sauce. Cooked medium rare as requested. My sister wanted mashed as a substitute and they were glad to oblige. They were prepared just right with the perfect amount of lumps so you know they’re the real deal. I will definitely return again when I’m in Chicago.
