The Caesar salad was the best part of our meal. We had a seat by the front door and hostess stand but it wasn’t detracting. Our waitress didn’t mention the specials and we only noticed them on a paper hanging on the wall after we’d ordered and it would have changed our choices. The food was good but not great. I expect great for the price we paid. They kept trying to deliver our food to the wrong table which says something about their service or communication. Overall it was good but with all of the amazing choices in Chicago we likely will choose elsewhere next time More

This was some of the best sushi I have had in Chicago, certainly belonging in the top echelon. The flavors were super fresh, presentation creative and atmosphere elegant Yet comfortable. The service was great, they walked us through some dishes and products we were not familiar with and made us feel comfortable. A huge bonus, probably the largest wall of Japanese whiskey in Chicago. Definitely worth a try if you are looking for a great sushi experience or a special occasion. More

This place is a hidden gem with a huge parking lot! We visited on a slow night so we were able to talk to the owner and the bartender. Everyone made us feel welcome and very friendly. We ordered the goat cheese and leek appetizer along with the short rib potstickers. They were both outstanding. We both had the fish and chips for dinner and declared them the best fish and chips we ever had! The tempura style batter was so light and fluffy. We were too full for dessert but we took some pastries home and they were amazing. The pastry melted in your mouth! We can’t wait to go back. More

We went here before going to a play at The Royal George Theater and boy was it a treat! Our waiter Matteo was delightful and made great suggestions. The Burrata with crostini (not on the menu) was great, the lentil and minestroni soup (also not on the menu) tasted like my nonna's. My entre Conchiglie del Mercante (shell pasta, sausage, peas, tomatoe sauce, cream & cheese) I had with housemade Pappardelle instead, Matteo's suggestion, and it was great. My husnand had veal saltimbocca which was perfectly seasoned and cooked. We thoroughly enjoyed our two hours there before the play! More

What a delightful experience. A friend and I decided to try this new spot for dinner. Greeted with a smile and seated. Daniel (and team) took care of us for the evening. We had the prosciutto starter/appetizer which was large slices of deliciousness. We both had pasta and enjoyed our dishes immensely. My risotto was made to order and delicious. Daniel was professional, allowed us time to talk and catch up. Staged our meals perfectly and kept our wine full. He was so kind to let us try a few testers of Italian wine prior to committing to a bottle. We will definitely be back. A superb evening. Excellent service. Friendly faces and I highly recommend visiting. More

This is my third time there. Food is great and solid, so is the drink menu and the ambiance. Service was not great the first two times there, but last time it was definitely better, probably because the restaurant wasn't as crowded as the first two times I was there, probably due to the bad weather. All in all, this is a great and cozy place and I really hope it succeed and sticks around. We need places like this in the neighborhood. More

My family and I were here last night for dinner and everything was excellent. Everyone was satisfied with their meals for the most part,however, while the salmon was cooked very well, they put it on the plate skin side down therefore the skin was very soggy and inedible. Other than that, I will be back most likely sooner than later but this time for the King Crab legs! Our waitress was wonderful and there was also another older gentleman who was just as delightful.

Creole / Cajun / Southern | Lincoln Park, Chicago

I was very surprised upon walking into the Cajun restaurant, as I expected it to have a Southern feel to it. Instead it was a bit darker with neon lights and heavy music playing. We were seated instantly and the service was prompt, only to be blown out of the water with the best wings I've ever had. They were perfectly fried and moist, a Ratatouille movie experience if you will when describing the taste. The Jambalaya was also delicious. It's a new restaurant to add to my Chicago recommendation list. More
