You'll be tempted by the tapas at this Streeterville eatery, from the team behind Emilio's Tapas (other location is in Hillside). Our name means sun and snow, and we serve a wide range of hot and cold Spanish choices, including grilled shrimp with garlic lemon butter sauce, baked goat cheese in tomato sauce, paella, among other fabulous tapas. The wine list features more than 60 choices, many available by the glass. The restaurant features colorful murals, tile mosaics and iron light fixtures. During summer, the patio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy great tapas and sangria.

Generally good experience, but they need to let food rest before serving it. A couple dishes were WAY too hot. Bacon wrapped dates burned my date's mouth. Also got the order wrong, which is a bit frustrating. But it was resolved quickly. Food tastes great, though.

Very authentic Spanish food, delicious, fresh, beautifully prepared and presented. The calamari and shrimp were cooked just right and seasoned lightly, just to enhance their natural flavours. The potatoes dish, the chick pea dish (a delicious version of houmous) and the cured meat and cheese platter were all fabulous, but the baked goat cheese was the star. Would definitely recommend this place.

We went to Emilio's for our New Year Eve's dinner with friends and family. Our table was ready, service was outstanding (thanks!!), the food was really good and the waiter even helped us get some "custom" drinks made. We had a great time and for sure will go back there when visiting Chicago.

We always enjoy our visits to either the two restaurants, Hillside or Chicago. This time was Sol y Nieve in Chicago. The food is excellent, service and the ambiance are great. The only drawback are the prices, but its about the same everywhere else you go.
Excellent restaurant!

Food was fantastic. Service was horrible. Waiter never asked if we wanted more to drink. We asked for water 4 times, finally after the fifth time he came with a pitcher. We were done eating and every glass had been empty for 45 minutes.

Great food and wine,great service,what else to ask for for a restaurant. A little pricey but worth it. The place is next to parking area, if your driving to downtown Chicago.

We just happened upon this restaurant--very empty during a Saturday lunch. But the food was excellent, the sangria good, and the service fine. I will definitely go back.
