Great brunch menu and excellent service. Will be back here.
Atop Barneys at Oak & Rush, this very intimate, quite bar/restaurant is impressive. great for conversation, attentive but not invasive service, wonderful cocktails, appetizers (vegan soup), gluten free pizzas available. small yet perfect menu for all. personally, i found it "gold coast-y expensive" yet, for a special meal, it was perfect. great for an EARLY date night as they close at 7. i also understand, in season, their terrace is a delight. great people watching - in the retail section and outside! enjoy the bartender, Clarence! a rare find!
Excellent experience. Great food and service!! Wonderful menu with great selections. It was difficult to decide what option to try. Highly recommend!!
Great food, great service, cozy and elegant atmosphere.
We were celebrating a birthday and enjoyed our experience at Fred's very much. The food and service were excellent.
The food was delicious and the views of downtown were amazing. It was also a romantic setting, perfect for dates. However, the waiter came to our table three times to ask to take our plates away, which made us a bit annoyed.
We had lunch to celebrate our daughters birthday. I love the room many windows and a big fire place.
I went for a Christmas lunch with my great friend so that we could talk and catch up. We each had a glass of wine that is free with your Barneys credit card, and their wonderful Oak Street salad with in-house poached lobster, shrimp and crab. It was delicious!
Pretty good find. Lovely atmosphere and excellent food. Service was a little slow. But....Would definately return when in town again!
Good food and variety in menu. Truffle fries!!! 😋
I enjoyed my first trip to Fred's. It was perfect for lunch with friends. Food, ambience and service was top notch.
The food was just okay. My crab cakes came out less than luke warm so I had to send them back to be heated more. I wanted to love it because it is close to our home but it was really just ok.
As always fred’s was outstanding!! Clarence was an amazing host at the bar as usual!! Food was delicious!! Thanks for a great evening!!!
Everything was perfect on a very busy day, Black Friday, not rushed at all even though my guests were detained.
Great place for lunch, beautiful room, interesting menu and great service
Always delicious at Fred’s whether in Mew York or Chicago!
We visit Freds in NYC and now in Chicago. Both my teenage boys love the food. Good variety for the parents too and always tastes great!
We love the Margaret’s pizza but only underdone. We thought the pizza was smaller this time with less cheese. We”ll try again this week.
Too a friend for her 60th Birthday. Such a great lunch spot and a great location. Everything we had was amazing except the "chocolate souffle" which was not a true souffle, kind of a lava cake which isn't my favorite. Can't wait to go back!
Salad had zero taste, service was poor and restaurant is freezing
The margarita pizza “underdone” is fabulous. Enjoyed our lunch very much.
Always a wonderful experience!!’ Thank you Carlos, Loretta and Clarence!!!
I’ve been to Fred’s 3x but never w hubbie. He loved. Great food, ambience and view down Oak St to Lake Michigan. Service well done. Thanks Fred’s.
Ate lunch twice while in Chicago. First time was actually very good, second time not so much. The difference: Took an extremely long time for drinks to arrive. Apparently bartender also was serving food at the bar and had some tables himself to wait on. The music was awful and way too loud. Asked to have it turned down ( server could not even hear us requesting that ) but it never happened. Also herd another table ask the same thing. The food was not good except for the outstanding chicken soup. Lets just say one pasta dish was flavorless while the cabonara was dry and the only flavor was burnt garlic.
Great service and the Parmesan truffle fries are delicious
Fred’s for lunch is always a choice when my business lunch is more about fun and relationship building.
Our waiter was great and very attentive.
Food was outstanding and service was great. My wife and I really enjoy the atmosphere and ease to get a table. Definitely one of our top 5 to visit when downtown.
Amazing as usual! Keep coming back!
Loved my 17 veggie salad! Beautiful ambiance and our server was great! My friend had the cheese pizza and it looked amazing. I’ll get that next time.
Love this place, the waitstaff are are all very effecient & polite. The icing on the cake is the new Assistant Manager, Loretta, formly of Neiman Marcus’ Mariposa restaurant. She is the BEST, Fred’s did themselves an enormous favor snatching her up!!!
Buffalo burger was greasy and a little gamey (compared to other Buffalo). Chicken salad was good, except chicken was bland.
Love Fred’s at Barneys. It’s one of my favorites. It’s located in Chicago’s Gold Coast a wonderful neighborhood for high end shopping and people watching. The food is delicious, I always get a salad they are amazing. My husband loves their pasta dishes and from time to time they will have scallop specials. The managers are always so friendly and so is the weight staff. They go out of their way to accommodate you any way possible. In the spring and summer I love to sit outside. And in the winter it’s nice to cozy up at the bar next to the beautiful linear fireplace.
Great date night experience!!
Server was not very attentive
Always love getting a table by the window with a view of the lake in the distance. Can’t get enough of the seafood salad...and of course the fries with truffle oil and parmesan!
Average service, average food.
Forgot the cheese to my cheeseburger. Brought the cheese to me in a plate, still charged me$2 for the cheese.
I just expected a little better.
