Service is perfect, but no surprise on food and my steak is over cooked.
The server was phenomenal....knew about pacing the evening and remembered all our preferences!
Ambiance and cuisine are outstanding. The service was impeccable...per usual.
I paid $35 for a burger that I’ll only remember because it was one of the worst burgers. What a joke- a pretentious place for people to escape to if you’re living in the Gold Coast
Our Waitress was super busy and for that reason we got poor service. She never checked on our table after taking our order, and we had to wave her down every time we needed something. I had to ask the buss boy for coffee after sitting at the table for 15-20 minutes. Poor service, food was ok. There are much better places where I can pay $25 for a burger and get better service. It's ok to charge what you charge for food, but at least offer the service to go with it.
Good food. Good venue. Empty restaurant. Don’t understand how this place is still in business. It seems to always be empty.
Food was good. Drinks were a bit average. Service was excellent and attentive. Nice ambiance and view.
Elegant and simple and allows for great conversation.
1. We went there for birthday. We got nada treatment. Then what’s the point? True disappointment if you are celebrating a special occasion.
2. Hostess was just careless. The hostess didn’t seem like to want to host me at all.
3. Waiter has a whole lot of attitude. He couldn’t even bother to bring us the second drink that we asked for. We specifically asked but nope.
4. Environment was nice.
5. Food was average.
Overall, if I would to choose, definitely not again.
It is always nice eating here. Good food, good service, good price, good ambience.
Had a lovely lunch for restaurant week. Only snag was my dining companion has a peanut allergy. We told our server but our white fish was still served with a pistachio garnish. Our server quickly remedied the situation butit did put a wrench in the overall dining experience.
This is my 3rd visit to Fred's. The first 2 were excellent. Great food and service, and based on that, I took my husband there for his birthday . This last visit was so disappointing. My husband's soup arrived warm and had to be sent back. My order went back because it was not cooked properly the first time, and when it came back the second time, it was still not right, but at that point, I was done. I had indicated on Open table that we were there to celebrate a birthday but it was not mentioned. We did order dessert but they were out of what we ordered so they did comp the dessert. The manager was very nice when she took our food back, but I didn't raise my concerns with her because I did not want to get the server in trouble. It was obviously a bad day in the kitchen and did not represent what we had in past visits, so I don't know what happened that day.
We’ve enjoyed lunch several times so thought we’d try dinner. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. Service was fair, food was just ok, and there was a family with several small kids- screaming through dinner.
The manager didn’t seem to be able to do anything - though when we were leaving she said she had to ask security to ask them to leave. Very weird.
She should have at least bought us a round of drinks
Won’t be rushing back...
It was great! We came in for the Restaurant week special. The burrata and zucchini chips were amazing. I have the rigatoni bolongse and the sauce and meat were well seasoned. After that course I was full and brought my dessert home.
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!
My friends gather for lunch every Christmas season. It’s the perfect place to relax and shop after.
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.
