HUB 51 is the River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago's social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.

Everything was fine except that ran out of french fries. Very disappointing at a restaurant that has a great burger.

Busy place for a Sunday brunch. Innovative menu choices and endless mimosa's or ample bloody Mary bar. Try it!

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.

Couldn’t believe the tequila was $23 plus a $2 pour. Not worth it and should have been told. Food was good. Waitress nice but was missing for a bit. Have been here several times and always good food but was a bit disappointed with what I mentioned above.

Going to try elsewhere next time.

We were fully charged for the 1/2 off happy hour sushi. When we called the next day for a refund, they only gave us a gift card which was pretty annoying...other than that, pretty good spot.

The waitstaff told us there were only 2 salmon meals left well after ordering (our table ordered 3) which wasn’t that big of a deal. Then another 5 minutes or so they came back and told us there was actually 1 salmon meal left because they were prioritizing a carry out order over our tables in dining experience. I go to the this place fairly often and this surprised me and was a bit annoying. Other than that everything else was good.

Normally I would give 5 stars but on this particular visit they messed up on our food - 3 orders of the nachos. My sister found a long strip of plastic in her nachos towards the end. Although the manager was accommodating it still left a bad taste in my mouth.

Our waitress was phenomenal, especially with dealing with gluten-free dining. Food and drinks were awesome, per usual. Love this place. Special occasion was my parents visiting from Michigan for the weekend.

We were pressed for time and our waiter made our dining experience pleasant and relaxing. Split a chopped asian salad that was to die for. Dbl veggie patty burger minus the bun was outstanding. So many flavors and just enough kick to eat. Brussell Sprout salad was exceptional. Definitely go back (and I dont do repeats too often).
