Thai | Downtown / Loop, Chicago

Went there on a snowy night in January, and despite the crazy weather, the service was very attentive. Great place for basic Thai Food at a good price. Each of us really liked our meals which came with generous portion sizes (definitely enough for leftovers). Would have been better if they served alcohol, but their fruity hot tea hit the spot. More

Steakhouse | Downtown / Loop, Chicago

Food was delicious, however disappointed at the end. I was initially told they had a special 837 member pricing for a bottle of 2014 Resonnance Pinot Noir. I was told it was $30 off the regular price. I asked how much the regular price was and The waiter initially said the cost was $115. So I assumed it would be $85 after the discount. After the bottle was brought to our table, but before opening, I was informed the regular price was $135. So again I calculated the discounted cost would be $105 after the member discount of $30. I wasn’t happy about the price increase but agreed to go ahead with the wine. When the bill arrived, the wine was listed as $135. Upon inquiry, my husband was told $135 price was after the $30 member discount. RIDICULOUS! More

We celebrated Valentine's day at P.J. Chang's. The food was great, the service was great and they had a Valentine's special 4 course meal for $25 per person. This was an outstanding value. A touch that really impressed me was in the men's restroom they has a basket with blank Hallmark Valentine's card's and a stack of P.J. Chang's ballpoint pens. With a note that if anyone forgot to give their Valentine a card feel free to take one. Nice touch. More

We have dined twice in the last 3 weeks at Free Rein, both times before attending performances nearby. Both meals were outstanding! We we given a tasty amuse bouche before the meal; it was beautifully fried and presented on a small spoon - very enjoyable. On both occasions, we started with raw oysters. these were from New Brunswick and were perfect - ice cold, pristinely fresh, with a touch of brine. We both had loup de mer for our main course; it was cooked medium rare, just as it should have been! The chef clearly knows how to handle fish and seafood! Bread service included 2 options with butter. We indulged. Service was willing and professional. We will return again soon. Thank you. More

Afternoon Tea | Downtown / Loop, Chicago

Overall experience was good and fun. I wish it was on the rooftop or at a higher level than the lobby, so I hope that they’ll consider that in the future. My few negatives were the fact that there was not enough filling in the macarons (the two halves should not be touching as pictured); and that the tea selection is fairly light if you don’t like black tea. I generally avoid black teas, especially Earl Grey, but the Earl Grey was fantastic. In a big picture sense: these are very very minor details. More

The name RAISED, refers to many conceptual layers: the iconic bascule drawbridges that line the Chicago river, the river locks that raise the water for passing boats, and the elevation of the urban rooftop location. The name also draws inspiration from the urban gardener and the DIY hop grower, brew master, or wine maker with the notion of raised garden beds, hop plants and grape vines.

With an industrial aesthetic, eclectic style and raw finishes, raised welcomes locals and guests to enjoy the indoor/outdoor bar, open roof deck and private outdoor areas overlooking the scenic downtown Chicago River view.

Discover Chicago Downtown / Loop

Chicago's downtown Loop district is a bustling center of commerce known for its historical scenery and unique urban culture. Located between Chicago Street and Harrison Street, the Loop is also home to numerous eateries that draw inspiration from across the world. Visitors to the Loop regularly enjoy Chicago-style deep-dish pizza and hot dogs. While these classic offerings have earned a reputation as Chicago's most popular foods, foodies and culinary experts are impressed by the Loop's hip restaurants that are revolutionizing the dining scene. Many small restaurants in the Loop offer upscale New American fare. New American dishes often consist of traditional American dishes that are fused with foreign flavors. People in search of romantic dining environments can enjoy upscale steakhouses. Small family-owned Southern and Eastern European restaurants are also popular in the Downtown/Loop area.
