This is an outstanding restaurant. The food varies somewhat from standard Italian fare by bringing in vegetables and herbs. We started with two small plates: calamari and black kale. My wife had linguine with clams; I had spaghetti with lobster. Both were excellent. Leave room for the desserts, especially the "crunch" and sorbetto. More

I was very disappointed in my salad. It was labeled "Baby Artichoke." I assumed it was artichokes with the other items mixed in. In fact it was a lettuce salad with baby artichokes cut into very small (less than an inch) pieces and sprinkled through like the currants and almonds. It tasted good, but I never would have ordered it if I had thought it was just a lettuce salad garnished with artichokes. More

We had lunch on a quiet Monday. There was barely anyone else dining. The ambiance was nice and the food was good. The waiter was adequate. Plan ahead if you are valet parking as you have to pay at the front desk. When we were there one person was attending the front desk and there was a line of people waiting. We waited a good 10 minutes just to pay for the valet. When you are on a schedule that can be a problem. I commented that they should have someone to help her but she didn't seem to care. More

Afternoon Tea | Downtown / Loop, Chicago

Glad to have found the London Tea House. The only place I could find in Chicago offering tea service starting early, at 1pm. We were seated at a table at the window. The seating area is more of a lounge than a restaurant. The tea selection was limited to just five types. The food was good, more small bites than sandwiches. Despite having requested a vegetarian option ahead of time, the restaurant was not aware of this, which delayed our food service slightly. However, they did arrange to provide the vegetarian option. Overall, we enjoyed everything. The presentation of the food was beautiful. I would have liked more sweets.... The only bite I did not enjoy was the doughnut, as mine was very dry. We especially enjoyed the champagne! A very nice experience for afternoon tea. More

Perhaps a virgin margarita, mule or mojito would have been a better suggestion. I’m a non drinker but like to have an N/A drink when out with friends. Shirley Temple irked me but I guess it’s better than water. The mock tail list at The Cindy is amazing and Pops also has a wonderful selection and because of that I go there a lot in girls night out.
