I got the steak tacos and a red wine. The wine was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly and it was delicious. Everything else was ehh. The rice was kinda dry/old. The salsa, guac, and beans were ehh. Nothing special.

Food is awful, bottomless mimosas (while a good bargain) are more OJ than champagne–hope you like pulp.

Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten; my group were all trying each others dishes. And the service was next to unbeatable!

Tried this spot during our most recent girls trip to Chicago. I highly recommend booking in advance. We ended up waiting about 10 minutes after our initial reservation. No big deal, the place was poppin'. This was a dating hotspot for sure. The "Vodka-Cucumber Bull$hit" was a great starter drink - refreshing and light. I wasn't sure how big the appetizers were, so for dinner I ordered the "Ahi-Tuna Poke" and the "King Crab California". The sushi rolls were regular size (probably couldn't have it as a solo entree). But the Poke was huge. It could be split amongst a group as an appetizer or as its own entree. Shout out to our waitress. She juggled quite a few tables and even ran out of the restaurant to give a customer their wallet they had left. Food is a little pricey, service was a little slow, but food, drinks, and ambiance was great.

This restaurant has something for everyone. Sushi to Mexican to sandwiches and don't forget the amazing carrot cake. All of these were good. We tried a bit of each.
Our waiter was great and very accommodating.
We will definitely come back here on another visit to Chicago.

Great service. Our waitress heard us wish our son a happy birthday and just brought out a cake at the end of our dinner.

The service was outstanding! Our server was helpful and very attentive. He recommended the bang bang cauliflower and it was amazing!!!!! We wish we had the recipe. On a side note, the busing staff were so efficient and on top of everything, particularly for a Saturday night.

They were told it was one of the family members birthdays and nothing special was done during dinner. Waiter never came around and seemed disinterested/ lazy. Food was soggy.

As usual, the offerings from Hub 51 were delicious. I had the filet mignon tacos with lettuce wraps. The steak was tender and juicy and just the right temperature. The dish was complemented with black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole and rice. My dinner companion had the chicken enchiladas stack and commented on how tasty her entree was. I ordered a slice of carrot cake to go, it was divine. Even though it was snowing pretty heavy, the place was packed, one taste let’s you know why.

As always outstanding service and delicious food! I was hosting a business lunch. The music was way too loud to the point my one guess thought he was back at a Led Zeppelin concert. The server did have the music turned down but it was still a bit loud for a conversation. Good music again too loud for lunch and conversation.

Went for Restaurant Week but ordered from the menu. Chopped salad excellent as always. Fish in the fish tacos a bit dry. Could have had more stuff to put in the tacos. Others were satisfied with their entrees.
