Been here a couple times and it’s been OK. Service was lacking for a large party for 10 people. The place is loud and it’s hard to have a conversation. But the food is damn good

This was my second time here and I loved it. The manager helped us get a reservation for New Years Eve and thanked us for coming in. The only issue I have is there are not enough chicken options. Chicken sausage or breakfast sausage is a must this day and age. Outside of that, this place is awesome.

Stopped by after work on a Friday. Limited menu but food was pretty good. Hopefully, the place gets livelier later at night bec it was rather empty at 6pm. More of a bar than a restaurant. Drinks are little pricey but not more than other river north places. Music fairly loud and not to my taste - they were playing clubby dance music but people were just trying to talk.

 (San Diego)·Dined on October 1, 2017

We came here for brunch, which is buffet style, food only for $40 or you can add $20 and get bottomless mimosas. The food is amazing with a great variety: omelette, BBQ, salami and cheese, waffles, oysters and shrimp cocktails, and a variety of boozy desserts! Pro tip: do NOT start with the omlette, however tempting it may be! We made that mistake and was too full to eat anything else. The price is worth it if you can eat a lot or go for the oysters or shrimp cocktail. The ambiance is very energetic, and they have EDM music blasting. Overall pretty good experience, but only if you can eat a lot!

I wouldn't recommend this place to my friends. When my party arrived we were told that we would have to be split up. We had two reservations, a table for 9 and a table for 6. Initially, I was told that this would not be a problem. Needless to say, it was. Fast forward, finally we were able to be seated upstairs after my party of 15 had been seated downstairs and had started eating. Upstairs we were seated way in the back section by the bar. We didn't get to enjoy the open rooftop that I was really happy and excited about.I thought an open rooftop, nice weather, good food and my birthday would be awesome! I was so wrong! We were charged a 20% gratuity & we barely and I do mean barely ever saw a waiter. If we wanted bottomless mimosa's we had to go to the bar & request them. I noticed that there were no African American's upstairs, besides my party whom were way in the back by the bar area. When we went downstairs all the African Americans seemed to have been seated in the downstairs area. I will say that the General manager did give my party free shots and that was really nice, but by that point and having been going back and forth with the General manager I was so disappointed. There's so many really nice rooftop spots in Chicago to enjoy and I chose this spot. Never Again!!!!

This was my second time there. Both times service was excellent. Surprised to find out that the rooftop is not open during the week. Big mistake!! The food and service are great but people head to the roof during the summer. Hope Fremont doesn't lose core business over tactical error.

Swanky environment, upscale, trendy & modern. Loved the live music twist to the Sunday brunch. Food was amazing , service was exceptional, & although it's kind of pricey (about $55/pp total without the unlimited mimosas or about $75/pp total with unlimited mimosas) for what you get it is absolutely worth it! I'll definitely recommend & will be going again soon. Books up super fast at least a month in advance

When you are paying a significant amount for your experience, that's exactly what you deserve, and it starts with the door security and we were so satisfied with it all. The entire staff was amazzzing. Kudos to the leaders, trainers, management ect. Keep them all classy and we will keep coming back!

I went here with friends and family for my birthday and, although we had dinner reservations for 10 pm, they let us in a half hour early! It's a shame I can't remember our waitress' name because she was so nice and accommodating. I ordered the sausage & smoked wild mushroom flatbread and it was pretty good The portion size was pretty big too. My sister and her boyfriend split the hot fried chicken platter and they could not finish everything; definitely something to share with 2-3 people. One of my friends ordered the buffalo cauliflower tacos and, although they tasted good, they're not worth ordering for the amount you pay because each taco (3 total) was pretty much half the size of a regular-sized taco. As for drinks, I had the Paloma and it was d e l i c i o u s; they were generous with the amount of tequila. The same goes for the Tiki Take III.
After dinner, we asked our waitress if we could go upstairs to the second floor (because sometimes there are private events hosted up there) and she said we could. We went upstairs and thankfully there was no cover charge. A DJ was playing live music and there were couches, booths, and small tables with chairs, though I'm not sure if those were reserved for people with bottle service. There was also a bar to order shots/drinks and one of my friends said the Sex on the Beach drink was good. The place didn't get fully packed until around 12 am but the ambiance wasn't a full on dance club feeling. Majority of the people (around late 20s/early 30s) were conversing with one another and slightly dancing within their groups; nothing too crazy.
The overall experience was good! I'd come back again for a more chill night of dinner and dancing.

Fremont was definitely the place to experience for Sunday Brunch this year. This was my third visit and unfortunately it fell short, prior to the previous experiences. The food and servers are the most consistent things at the restaurant. Unfortunately, they need to work on customer service standards when it comes to the their bouncers and managers. We were celebrating my friend getting her nursing degree. The brunch is fun especially with the bottomless mimosas, but now in Chicago you can find so many more options for a lower cost. Same buffet style, same donut walls, and same bottomless options. After brunch, there is the option to head upstairs to the rooftop bar. However, if you are not a hot female or have bottle service booked, GOOD LUCK getting up there. The bouncer told me and my friends that it was highly unlikely we'll be able to get up there. Mind you, I've been here before and know how it works. We waited 45+ minutes in the front of the line, as people with no wrist bands, and cute girls charmed the bouncer to go upstairs. So I walked over and talked to the host, who then grabbed a manager. The manager came off as being quite patronizing and told us he'll see what we could do. After another 30 minutes of waiting, the manager returned and walked us up the BACK STAIRCASE to the second level. What we saw was a moderate size crowd with plenty of room for more guests. This one experience ruined my entire view of the Fremont. If you're looking for the same brunch & bottomless mimosa options at a better cost I recommend trying out Highline Bar + Lounge or Steakbar. These restaurants have way better service, more of a laid back atmosphere, and you save at least $30+ dollars. I won't be returning any time soon to the Fremont.

My friends and I recently here for the brunch and we were utterly amazed. The staff are so helpful and friendly. Your glass whether it's water or mimosas never go empty. The food was spectacular! Only thing I wish someone had explained to us earlier about getting a stamp for the rooftop but we were ok with passing on the party. We were already talking about coming back while paying the bill.
