Fulton Market is one of my most favorite places in Chicago. The history is remarkable and the transformation over the years is equally so. We have tried many places but it was time to try Maude’s - and it was wonderful! The space is intimate, romantic but relaxed. Service was excellent. Food and drinks even better. All 4 of us had smashes - smily violet, bourbon, chartreuse and vodka. Really perfect summer cocktails. We shared plates - salads were shaved vegetable and lyonnaise. Unique and so good! Escargot was rich with warm crusty bread. Pom frites with homemade mayo. Chicken steak and french onion fondue for main done to perfection. We skipped dessert but the choices looked sinful! Perfect spot for a first date, small celebration, or a night with friends. Relaxing and refreshing!

The combination of ambience, service, drink but most of all food, is what makes any trip to Maude’s a special treat! The steak tartare and foie gras is the best I’ve ever had- hands down!

I met a friend for dinner before seeing a show on a Tuesday afterwork. It was beautiful weather so we sat outside. The service was great! Attentive and well informed and very engaging without being intrusive. We had shared the steak tartare and the mussels...both delicious. We each had a salad....one of my favorites of all time, frisée with soft egg, pork belly and light dressing. The wine selection was good too

We go to Maude's all of the time and unfortunately our service was incredibly subpar last night. We had empty wine glasses for majority of the night and were hoping to order dessert but by the time our waitress finally decided to visit our table, we had long changed our minds. I know that the Hogsalt Group highly values service and I've never had issues in the past. After hyping the restaurant up to my out of town guests, we were highly disappointed in our experience.

Maude's Liquor Bar was one of the coolest spots we've been to thus far in Chicago. A very dimly lit interior with dark leather and chandeliers all around made this a really romantic and cozy spot. The drinks and food were delicious. Perfect date spot.

It took over an our to get seated even with a reservation and they brought two glasses of warm champagne and cold french fries over as an apology. Neither which were enjoyed. All the food we ordered was wonderful but took so long to get either.

I booked a 7:30pm reservation taking into consideration that we had a 10:30pm show and didn’t want to be rushed. We are running 10 minutes behind so when we were told that our table wasn’t quite ready it was no problem. We just went to grab a cocktail at the bar. By the time we were finally seated it was over an hour after our original reservation and we were irked. We were disappointed to see the wine menu was very limited. We ordered the salmon tartare to start, which was delicious, and the steak tartare and cassoulet for a main. The cassoulet was delicious but the steak tartare was just fine and the horseradish it came with was very weak. We wanted to get the creme brûlée but unfortunately had run out of tjme and hadn’t to leave for our show. For nearly $250 it was definitely a two star experience. The decor was nice but the tables were crowded together to the point that people were physically moving them in order to get out. There was limited separation between the bar and dining area and due to the volume of people it was quite loud. It felt more like somewhere I would go to get a nice pizza than a celebratory night out.

Really disappointed with my dinner at Maude’s. The place was beautiful but the service was bad (oddly paced meal— food came too fast, they pressured us to order dessert before our dinner was cleared, when they brought dessert they didn’t bring utensils for a long time, at the end of the night we couldn’t linger over last drinks because they said kitchen and bar were closed at around 11:15). Food was overly salty and seemed uninspired (no specials). Just disappointing overall. Seems like a restaurant that was once great but is now the forgotten child of a chef who’s moved on.

This is a cozy restaurant in a great location. They have a fun menu concentrating on French fare, but with plenty of seafood, salads and an amazing looking burger. Nice wine selection. Great service.
