I want to start off by saying this place is AWESOME! I have been here a handful of times and have yet to have a single complaint. The food is delicious, the shakes are a must, and the atmosphere is very lively and welcoming. The staff is very friendly. Even our bus boy sparked a conversation and made the experience more fun. Our waitress was great, unfortunately I forget her name. Matt the GM is an awesome guy. Talked for a while with him and he’s a super down to earth person. Overall a great experience and will most definitely be back More

We were looking for something different and Kurah's offered that to us. The Red Lentil soup was really good, though I was surprised it wasn't red. The service was good, could have been more attentive but there was only one waitress and it did get busy. Overall, Kurah was a good place for something different, a tasty alternative to the standard fare. More

She was patient with my aunt, attentive and very personable. This was my aunt’s first time there and said it is now her favorite restaurant and the best birthday she’s had in years.

Not your typical hotel restaurant and bar! There's a variety of seating, from tables with sofas to high tops with low-back bar stools. Decor is modern and fresh. Not too loud for conversation. Menu puts a creative spin on some traditional dishes. Mostly "shareable" appetizers or full entrees on the dinner menu, but there's also a burger and some salads. Service was a little spotty - forgot to bring a glass of wine and one of our entrees came out 5 minutes after the others - and about 6 different employees visited our table at some point, felt like they were scrambling a bit to take care of everyone. That said, the pace was nice and relaxed (not too slow), and the food was delicious. It's too far to be a regular spot, but it's a great option if you're going to McCormick Place or the Wintrust Arena. More

I had over 20 people coming to have a family gathering for Pre-Christmas party. My husband had said to try Connie's and I am so glad we did. We had the best service, best food, and the best time! The waitress took the picture of our group for us and it was so much fun to be there. I will definitely go there again and have parties there again! More

One will find a vast array of eateries near the neighborhood's museums and historical areas like Japanese and Thai cuisine as well as some of Chicago’s top casual restaurants. If you're in the mood for something else in the neighborhood, you can get pierogi from a Polish restaurant or tapas from a Mexican restaurant.
