To kick off the holiday season, we visited Formentos Sat night. While we were originally seated in the bar area, when we asked if we could be moved to the main dining room, we were graciously accommodated!!!! Great, cozy atmosphere and great food!!!!
Overall good. For some reason the recommended the pasta as a side dish. Pasta is usually the main course
Business dinner with a large group. Good food and served in a reasonable time frame.
Great food and service. This is a team that knows how to handle a large group before a concert at the United Center. Kudos!
The octopus was overcooked. meatballs and kale salad were excellent. the tortelloni was a little bland. the meatballs and pasta weren't hot.
Food was good but not on par with price range. Very comparable to other standard Italian restaurants at a lower price point
Formento’s website advertises Happy Hour from 4:30-6:30. When I arrived early for the 5pm reservation, I was presented the happy hour drinks menu at the bar. When we were seated at the table, I asked for the happy hour food menu. I was informed they do not do happy hour. At all. Which is not true because they gave me a happy hour menu at the bar. I was confused as Google Maps also had on their menu excerpts from their happy hour food menu. One of the top reasons I picked a reservation here was for their happy hour menu which was nonexistent. If Formento’s does not have a happy hour, I would suggest not advertising for one.
Meh. My husband has no problem letting me take the driver's seat at a restaurant...I usually pick the wine, the appetizers...but I think the waiter had a problem with him deferring to me. The food was great, the experience, not so much. The last time we came here it was a wonderful experience...but we probably won't be back.
Had a great time here from the moment I walked in. The bartender, Travis, was funny and friendly, and made a damn good set of cocktails. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Can't wait to return.
Great food and atmosphere!
It was my wifes birthday, they said happy birthday in the beginning but i would expect for a 300$ meal they would have brought a desert or offered at the end...
Kinda disappointing in a large way
It was also well over an hour before we got our main course...
Just not what i expected
Delicious food. Cocktail was a bit underwhelming but the food made up for it.
Food is extremely salty. All items very overly salted which made for a pretty unsatisfactory meal.
Sat in bar, waiter attentive, food good but pastas small portions except chick parm was huge. Problem was noise was so loud we could barely talk.
Food was outstanding. One of us had squid ink pasta and the other tortellini. Dessert good also. Highly recommended!
The staff was very accommodating to our big party and the service was great! Food was delicious
The food and service at Formento's is consistently good!
Really great experience, not too fancy but elevated Italian food. Service was helpful and quick, atmosphere was warm & family friendly. Definitely will go back!
The food and drinks were delicious. We had steaks and different pasta dishes at our table. The bartender created a new drink on the spot that we couldn't get enough of. We will definitely be going back very soon.
Seven of us sampled many of the different items on the menu in anticipation of a dinner for 40 people in March upstairs in their event venue. We all loved everything that we ate.
This was our third visit to Foremento’s, but our first without a large group. Although our meal was quite expensive for two people, the quality on all levels of our experience were well worth the price. We have been there for large parties and now as a date, Foremento’s never disappoints! Exquisite food, exceptional drinks and service, overall always a lovely experience, Foremento’s will always be a go to for a special occasion!
Disappointed as Formentos has always been a go-to Italian spot for us. Drinks took 30 mins to arrive. Food took forever as well and was cold. Server didn’t even acknowledge the waits or apologize. Won’t be recommending anymore!
Formentos, my favorite restaurant in the entire US, never fails — the food, service, and drinks always hit it out of the park.
I recommend this place to everyone and I hold other restaurants to the Formentos standard.
We thought everything tasted OK, but the portions are SO small for the $$$ they charge - especially the wine pours. And I am not a big drinker!
The food was very good. Our server was attentive, and very helpful with food allergies/sensitivities. The ambience was "energetic" so it was difficult to hear other people in our party but other than that it was a good night out!
Had to pay $10 to reserve table. When two of my guests arrived 10 minutes before me they were informed that if they sat at table the clock was ticking on a 2-hour window. Never mind any consideration for one of them being blind which I pointed out in the reservation. Then when I arrived, they were too busy seating walk ins so we were given last table available by a service area.
Waiter was very good but overwhelmed to give great service. Busboys not well trained as they didn’t clear table until I wrangled one or two at different times during dinner.
Food was excellent and kudos to kitchen keeping up with a packed restaurant.
One of my guests ordered a martini that was served in a sherry glass!!!! So wrong.
Noise level horrendous.
$800 for four guests. Ya’ll decide if worth it.
Perfect for date night or intimate dinner. Fine Italian and fish.
My girlfriend and I came in for our anniversary. I don’t usually write reviews but the restaurant and our server, Sydney, absolutely deserves some recognition. Our reservation was a little behind but we didn’t mind at all, we just hung out at the bar for a few minutes and grabbed a cocktail while we waited. As soon as we got to our table, they brought over some Prosecco to celebrate which we thought was absolutely adorable. Our server Sydney comes by and she’s fantastic. Knowledgeable about the menu, hospitable, happy, great energy and honestly, everything you want when you go out, especially for a special occasion. The meal went on and of course we took her recommendations on everything and it was fantastic. And to top everything off their somm brought us some amari to pair with our desserts that we got at the end of the night. Overall Formento’s was every bit of an amazing experience and will recommend to everyone
Loved! The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We had calamari as a starter and it was almost too much for us to finish, in fear we wouldn’t be able to eat dinner. Had to skip dessert! The restaurant feels dark in the best way, and cozy. It was pouring rain outside and it felt warm and inviting inside. Really had a nice experience.
We had a great dinner. Ambience was lively and fun. Maggie was our server and she was amazing. We were really impressed with her.
Had reservation for 8:00pm and did not get seated until 9pm
Great food service special placr
Food was amazing! Highly recommended!
IT WAS GREAT .....EVERYTHING ON THE MARK ......GREAT STAFF
The atmosphere had a great ambiance and the good and drinks were delicious!
I made this reservation for a friend. He told me that he thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Service was attentive and overall (slightly up scale) atmosphere was a great.
Great food and superb service. However, a family with a SCREAMING child was seated next to us. The noise was borderline intolerable. Nonetheless, the wait staff and food were outstanding.
