Great place to eat. The food was very good. Our server was attentive without being overbearing, and had knowledgeable suggestions when we asked for recommendations. We live about a block away, we plan to come back. Get the alligator roll! I was initially skeptical about the almonds, but they did a great job and it really accented the avocado and eel. More

We went for restaurant week and each of the 3 courses were a good value. We started with the baked brie (a small round) and mussels. The second course we picked the salmon and the surf and turf. They were both good portions including well-cooked asparagus and potatoes. Chocolate volcano cake and bananas foster were good desert choices. More

I told the waiter I can't have gluten when I ordered the veggie burger. He said he checked with the kitchen and told me it was fine, but it was not. I actually have celiacs disease, and was sick that night. Maybe the staff needs to be educated regarding what foods are not safe for celiacs diners ? More

Beautiful sunny cubs opening day brunch. Only disappointment was the email invite to make a reservation for opening day clearly advertised $4 organic beers, and even directed to “click here” if I wanted to take advantage of the offer, then told no special beer prices on game days. Almost felt lured in. Otherwise food and service was good. More

Contemporary American | Lakeview / East Lakeview, Chicago

I have enjoyed Grassroots before a couple shows at the Mercury. We've always received great service, stiff drinks and solid food. Here were some challenges this time. I booked a 630 rezzie before an 8pm show. We walked in a couple minutes early and the hostess said she would put a table together. A gentleman walked in and the bartender greeted him and sat him right away - right in front of us. So that just made us feel a little bad and obviously overlooked. They were pretty busy and from what I could tell, they seemed shortstaffed. Things happen, but you know the schedules of the Mercury and the Cubs well in advance. Schedule accordingly. We were eventually sat and served. Specialty cocktails were amaze, as well as the food we ordered! Calamari seemed super bread-y, but still good. Our server (the same bartender who overlooked us before) was great and really attentive during service. This was clearly a one-off and I would not hesitate to book here again! More
