The food was great. When I decided to order a cup of coffee after lunch the server took the check and added it on. Certainly acceptable just not what a seasoned server might do after serving 2 full meals w/wine. Then I asked to have my 1/2 sandwich left to go. They couldn’t find it. Offered to buy a new entire sandwich. Would have made more sense to pay for the cup of coffee and I’d have been receptive. More

The meat quality was really good and the people would take note of your favorite cuts and would come around often to offer more to you. Cheesecake was also really good and the salad bar had a premium presentation as well as quality. They took time to write and give us a piece of cake with “happy anniversary” written on it.

This restaurant is the perfect place for the carnivore in your family. It is all about the meat -- chicken, pork, lamb, and beef. I wish that we had been told that the shrimp cocktail offered to us was an additional charge.. We would have turned down the 6 shrimp at $21.00. The gauchos that serve the different kinds of meat and preparations and the rest of the staff were very prompt to remove plates from the table. It is a good value if you avoid the extras. More

This is the third or fourth time I've been here for lunch, and I only have one tiny bad thing to say. Usually the food is outstanding, but they only got 4 stars from me this time because I had to send my steak back. Our server was wonderful and very accommodating, but when I order steak medium (and I do all the time), I expect slightly pink in the middle - not mooing. I had to send it back because it was nearly bloody. Our server did exactly that, and I received very well done back. The only thing that saved it from being shoe leather is that it was obviously a very good piece of meat because it still tasted pretty good. The arugula, cheese and roasted tomatoes were fantastic. The brussel sprouts were exceptional. Otherwise, I'm sad there was an event in the "library" because that is my favorite place to sit. A good experience anyway. I work downtown, so I'm sure I'll be back. More

Went there for lunch before a weekday matinee show. Made my reservation online as we drove to Chicago from about two hours away. Found that we were going to run late due to traffic issues and easily modified my reservation as we traveled. We were seated immediately at our table and our server quickly took our drink orders. She also offered advice on the beers that were on tap, and recommended one that matched my preference perfectly. Our beverages and food arrived quickly and were well prepared and very tasty. I ordered the nachos, and it was a very ample portion. The atmosphere was bustling a little loud, but it was a great place for a lunch before the theater. More

I am new to Chicago, and this rooftop was recommended to me by everyone I talked to. I was glad we made a reservation, as it was crowded even at 5:45 p.m. on a Wednesday night, but that could have been due to the fact that some of it was closed for an event. If you want table service, I would recommend you make a reservation in advance, as the staff was pretty strict about allowing those without one to sit at the tables, which was nice. The menu was a great mix of small plates and larger meals. The small plates had amazing portions. We happened to be there during the hours where there were discounts for certain plates and drinks, and that allowed us to order more than we usually would. The views are beautiful, and this was a really fun stop before we saw a show at The Chicago Theatre! More

Thai | Downtown / Loop, Chicago

Lime Leaf Thai Fusion and Drinks represents a new food and beverage concept. Lime leaves have been used as a main ingredient for Thai foods over centuries. From a spicy and sour Tom Yum to a creamy Panang curry to a savory Tod Mun, the lime leaf represents herbal flavor. The green color of lime leaves also represent the "freshness". This is the reason we chose "Lime Leaf" as our business name.

Our mission is to bring that flavor to Chicago. The exotic ingredients in our food and the fanciful presentation of our drinks will combine with a local dedication to quality and customer service to create a new restaurant that will be a hub for the community.
