7 Plates Café

Modern European | Lincoln Park, Chicago

The food was excellent and the service warm and friendly. And the prices were a good bit lower than at comparable restaurants in the area. Each dish was well done. We had a very generous beet salad to start, then my wife had salmon and I had a pasta dish with seafood. It was all delicious. The service was attentive. The wine selections were good and included some options that you won't find everywhere, including a Roumanian white that we tried and quite enjoyed. My impression is that the family that owns and runs the restaurant is Roumanian. There was certainly a warm, family feel to this pleasant but unpretentious restaurant. All in all, we've very much enjoyed 7 Plates both times we've been there, and we will certainly go back again. More

The mussel appetizer is fantastic. Although the mussels are small, the tomato base broth is absolutely delicious. The mushroom, spinach, polenta served with the striped bass (on special) were very good but the fish was too salty. My husband loved the squid ink pasta with calamari, mussels, and shrimp. The trout on the plank was also excellent. More

We've dined at Casati's several times and always enjoyed our meals. This time my experience was different. The pizzas, made with their special dough, have been delicious. The new menu eliminated my favorite, La Bona, added some new ones, and a new category, "Crispy" pizzas. I like thin crust pizza so thought I'd try one. I understood that it had no sauce and agreed with the server to have some marinara sauce on the side. Thank goodness I did agree. The pizza was dry and flavorless. The marinara and balsamic vinegar on the table made it palatable. It's not an item I'll be ordering again. More
