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!!!
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.
Enjoyed the food and service! Family was happy with quality
Consistently good food, service and atmosphere. Pizzas and risottos are excellent and unlike many restaurants, they usually have a couple of good fish preparations on the menu.
A hidden gem on the top floor of Barney's of New York.
First time to the restaurant very impressed with service and food choices.
We sat outside and had a view of Lake Michigan and the beautiful buildings
that surrounded the area.
Definitely would recommend for lunch
Fred’s is a delightful restaurant that we should return to more frequently. In the summer the deck has a fantastic lake view. The Oak Street salad with lobster, crab, and shrimp is excellent. My husband’s pasta always provides leftovers for another day.
outstanding service, good food, a bit pricey... not crowded at all. Sat outside on a beautiful evening.. great view down Oak St.
Almost afraid to recommend as we go here often to escape the noise and crowds typical to downtown restaurants. Conversation oasis in the midst of the noise jungle. A bit pricy but well worth it for the friendly atmosphere.
It is a great place for lunch! Nice ambiance and professional staff.
I took my granddaughter there for her 10th birthday. Both of us enjoyed the ambiance and artwork above a big fireplace. There is a small balcony to eat outside, but we didn't attempt in the heat. The cheese pizza looked so simple but it was perfection! Total yum! It was worth the price. The chopped 17 ingredient salad I had was good, but it was unnecessarily large (basically unfinishable!), and the dressing needed more flavor. It was $24 and would be best shared by 2. The waiter sweetly sent over a chocolate chip sundae and it was yummy. The bread basket was nice with a choice of 3 kinds of bread. Service was very good, as well. I will return!
Always enjoy the decor and food at Fred’s! The salads are great and the crab cake amazing! Had an wonderful bottle of wine and never felt rushed.
Best outdoor spot along Rush Street.
We went to Fred’s for lunch and there was a plumbing issue. The restaurant had an overwhelming smell of sulfur. We ordered salads which were disappointing and then had to rush out due to the smell. As we were leaving the restaurant they told us they would be closing for the day due to the smell. We still had to pay for our meal without even a discount. Was very inconsiderate and poor customer service.
I took my mother here for a late Mother’s Day dinner celebration, and it was a great experience! We had a 6:00 PM reservation on a Thursday night, and it wasn’t busy just yet. We were able to get a table out in the patio, which is perfect if you want to enjoy the beautiful Chicago summer weather. The Pomme Frittes and Pizza were very good. Great spot if you’re looking to get smaller plates, great ambiance, or just to be away from the hustle and bustle of Gold Coast.
We were looking forward to a great experience for Mother's Day...it turned out to be mediocre at best. While the food was good, the service was slow even though the room was not crowded, servers were indifferent almost disinterested, mistakes in our order were begrudgingly corrected, and the cocktails were shockingly bad (watery, only partially filled glasses).
We live in the neighborhood and we will not go back...I guess the restaurant was not crowded on Mother's Day for a reason.
Enjoyed a lovely lunch with friends. As the weather was nice, we sat on the patio with a pretty view down Oak Street to the lake. It was breezy but pleasant. Our waiters were most attentive. I had the Fred’s chicken chopped salad which I loved (note: in the future I would request no alfalfa sprouts). One friend had the white fish and another had the chicken saltimboca and both said their meal was delicious. I recommend Fred’s highly!
Had a great lunch here with my mom. I ordered the lobster, crab, and shrimp salad - but subbed out the dressing for balsamic. Very good! I left STUFFED- the amount of fish they gave was very generous.
I love Fred’s but for this visit with a friend the service was average, the drinks ok and the food below par. The food took quite awhile to arrive and when it did was not prepared as I had ordered it. I did not send it back because of timing but the salad had too much dressing, the grilled chicken was not thoroughly cooked and the croutons plentiful but not edible. Very disappointing....
I love this spot for its great space and view, and in the past the food has been good. This visit, for Easter lunch, the food was bad. Simple things, an omelette, a quiche, a dessert,—were just poorly poorly executed. The food at Yolk would have been way better. Fred’s, was your chef on Spring Break?!
There were very few tables occupied the Friday night before Easter, so it was exceptionally quiet. The service was professional and the food was delicious. My son had the greens with avocado, chicken, green beans, etc and I ordered the whitefish prepared in an almond crust. The bread and olive oil served before the meal was exceptionally good. I especially liked the bread selection which included one with raisins. Yum!
Great food and service as usual!
