Herb was an amazing experience. I can see why they were featured on Michelin's Gourmand list. The flavor combinations were unique and well thought out. The presentations was very upscale and the service was exceptional. I cannot wait to go back again.

We had a wonderful meal at Herb! The prawns and soup were really tasty as was the basil chicken and the pork. It is an upscale experience because the food was so good and the atmosphere pretty. It is BYOB so bring your own beverage.

Excellent! Would highly recommend. The menu is limited to two fixed price menus (one is all plant based). There are, however, choices for entree and dessert. The flavors, freshness, wonderful presentation of the food and excellent service more than offset the limited menu choices. Pair with your beverage of choice since it BYOB.

We love this restaurant, the food is excellent and beautifully presented. Sometimes the chef will present it his/herself. The soup is truly amazing and all is healthy. If you want wine, stop at the nearby grocery, Herb will uncork and serve.

Great time and good food. I simply wasn’t aware that you can BYOB, otherwise I definitely would have! The dinner was delicious and very unique. I wish there was a little more dim lit ambiance but overall very fun date night. Big thanks to the Chef!

It was total pandemonium when we arrived for our reservation. People waiting for food outside, people waiting for orders inside. Restaurant was completely packed and it was total dysfunction. Was seated 10 minutes late and after waiting another 10 minutes at the table with no engagement, we left as it was clear that everyone was waiting more than an hour for their food. Every seat in the house was filled, too.

We had a very poor restaurant experiences last weekend at Herb. We have been to Herb before (preCovid) and loved the food! So, we were very excited to return. We had a 7pm reservation and were seated immediately. The restaurant is BYOB and we brought beer and wine. A server brought us bottled water quickly after being sat and we asked for two wine glasses and wine opener. After 10 minutes another table gave us their opener and we got up and went to host stand to get glasses. About 20 minutes in someone came to take our order. There were only two option on menu...5 courses, either vegan or not, and two options on the entree. We ordered. We saw course 1 after another hour, so 8:20pm. Rarely saw any server the entire time. Another 30 minutes went by, and no course 2. At that point we were starving and left. It was almost 9pm. Super disappointing. No clue how service could have been this bad with such a limited menu and limited seating capacity. An embarrassingly bad dining experience since we had brought another couple. We will not be back!

Probably one of the best Thai experiences I've had in Chicago. I love the 4-course menu with some Thai staples that were elevated beyond belief in both taste and appearance. The Thai coconut curry could have tasted more flavorful as it was pretty bland but I guess the menu changes so often perhaps it won't be back.

Great food, great atmosphere (perhaps a little too quiet), great experience!

Didn’t know it was fixed price menu.
Also didn’t know you couldn’t order alcohol. We saw another table byob. If we would have known that we would have brought a bottle of wine. Overall it was a beautiful, delicious meal.

The food was good but the place was full of very tacky valentine decoration. Plus they didn’t give glasses, they gave you a plastic water bottle which was very underwhelming give that they see themselves as upscale.

One of the greatest Valentine’s dates, I have had period.. it was personal.. romantic and relaxing. I didn’t want the night to end.

The food.. oh my! The food was amazing.. the owner, chef and the waitstaff was just a delight.

My only hope is that the woman I showed up with tonight will eventually be the one woman, I can experience more in life with.

This was our second Valentine’s Day at Herb. As with the first time, it was not just a meal, it was an experience. The food was delicious and the presentation is absolutely artful! Service is quiet and there is little to no ambient noise.

I definitely recommend Herb for any occasion.

Patty is amazing and wonderful. She explains the dishes, makes sure you feel safe and comfortable. The dishes make you feel like you are in Thailand! Everything is beautifully presented, from the betel leaves in the appetizers to the trio mushroom turmeric soup that makes you want to pick up the bowl and lick it cuz it's delicious. The three basil spicy chicken has the right amount of kick that makes your brow sweat a bit. I will go back and again and again. You don't feel rushed once. Bravo chef Patty and crew! Thank you!

Really beautiful presentation and all of the dishes were delicious. The menu is either 3 courses or 5 courses, with no a la carte option. I recommend the 5 course menu as you get to try more of everything, though you might be full by dessert. Staff was extremely attentive, serving and clearly quickly and quietly. The ambiance and decor are minimal, attractive, and soothing, almost spa-like. The restaurant was slower at our 6:30 Saturday reservation, however filled up shortly after, with new diners coming in consistently.
