Each dish was unique but fit together to make a satisfying delishous meal.
This place is so delicious. The food, the lighting, the cocktails, everything was perfect. My partner and I came for our anniversary and they treated us like queens! Super romantic and intimate restaurant.
Food was very good. They change their menu up which is nice, it seems this time they tried to add a couple more “hearty” dishes. I felt they were good but not as amazing as their seafood dishes.
Food was excellent! Tasty! We will definately visit again
We always have a wonderful experience here. Such a nice, cozy atmosphere with great service and absolutely delicious food.
It's not a economically conservative dinner option, but offers a rewarding dining experience with a unique menu and attentive service.
It’s a jewel box of delicious smells and tastes. Honestly, we stepped inside and it had a glow, from the genuine design and the people working there. The ingredients were put together in ways we’ve never had before, like the mussels- a must have!
We have considered dining at MFK a few times prior, but it just didn’t seem to fit certain criteria (someone’s date doesn’t eat fish?). But as we found, MFK is its own, unique, lovely, delicious spot to dine. We could not think of a single complaint; every yummy bite was tastier than that which preceded it, the service was wonderful - warm and friendly without a hint of snobbery. We’ll definitely be back.
Truly amazing food and great attentive service. Perfect experience for foodies.
Beautiful food! Lovely attentive service and quiet enough to talk across the table . We will go back
Such a fun place and ambiance! the food didn’t live up to it tho.
We had to wait for our table despite having a reservation. There really isn’t a good place to stand/sit or wait in mfk. Thankfully, the waitress brought us a small glass of champagne while we waited. She was pleasant, charming, and understanding. This small gesture was wonderful and made the awkward wait more tolerable.
Food was excellent as always. Standouts include the boquerones, goat cheese and fideos. Service was very good until our waitress said she had to leave and then someone else would be taking over. But at that point service was not quite as good or attentive. Still, an excellent evening and dinner.
Flavor profiles were spot on. Every dish was exceptional.
Best seafood in Chicago. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for quality food with great service in a beautiful cozy restaurant.
This is an odd place. The food is truly excellent and the ambience is nice and not overly loud, but the service was really sub-par. The waiters were relatively clumsy and slow to respond to requests, which was surprising given that the space is no larger than an average sized living room. The service staff was trying to do the right thing, so I don't think there was any darker motivation, they were just maladroit.
I am evaluating on a Bib Gourmand scale as this restaurant is nicer and more expensive than your average restaurant. Cute place and been here twice now. The first time thought the food was so-so, second time food was good-to-great. Seems a lot depends on the menu at the time. The croquettes were phenomenal, but tapas de jamon too small for the price. The rest were hit or miss as well. Everyone was getting the basque cake so we tried it but were disappointed by its dryness. No non-alcoholic drinks on the menu. Asked the bartender to make me a non-alcoholic drink but it was straight sugar. I think it’s a mistake when bartenders substitute alcohol for sugar in non-alcoholic beverages. Dishes came out in a well-paced manner, were described well, and plates were switched quickly. Had a trendy, romantic feel. I probably wouldn’t come back (I like a good dessert and beverage) but would understand why someone would choose to.
We love this restaurant. Wonderful food, drinks and service. Love this little gem in our neighborhood. Will be back many times.
This was one of my favorite restaurant environments in Chicago. It’s relatively small, but the charm and atmosphere work really well. It’s also not overcrowded.
Food was very good as well, though not exceptional. Really enjoyed all items of the meal though. Pretty slim wine and beer list too. The basque cake for dessert is out of this world.
Overall, good time. Would definitely go back, keep exploring the menu, and enjoying the good vibes.
From start to finish, the food was fantastic. The salt-cured sardines and the trout toast were two stand-outs.
Excellent service as always.
Creative menu, wonderful mix of flavors and textures!
Lovely meal. Wonderful service. Many thanks to all involved.
You guys are best. Thanks for not making me feel awful for my awful food allergies
It seems that a restaurant that demands a credit card to hold a reservation would be more welcoming when guests show up on time (and a little early), Such an attitude from the "gentleman' that "greets" upon entering.
Our server was very good until it got busy (STO) and then she obviously wanted to push us out. We asked for a post-dinner cappuccino and were told they were out of espresso :-) Then the people next to us were served cappuccino. We then asked for regular decaf to be told "it's pressed coffee so it will take a lot of time".
Please don't overbook our restaurant and then punish your guests
MFK consistently prepares a fabulous meal. Every time I take friends for their first MFK experience they are delighted.
Great food great service. Tables very close together
Great ambiance - small intimate restaurant with incredible food. Wine list is great and service is impeccable. We celebrate all of our 'happy news' dates here.
Amazing food! Each dish had an unique flavor! We were surprised at every bite. Definitely going back! Really good, I highly recommend mfk!
We used to like mfk- our last experience was not good. The food was not as good. The risotto was over cooked and did not taste good at all. Plus we think it’s too expensive for the quality of food they serve
This place is amazing our waitress was so sweet and knowledgeable on everything the ambience was nice and the food was superb. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.
Server was not terribly attentive, but experience overall was fantastic.
Awesome food, even better service! Can’t wait to go back
Great Menu for Valentines Day!
Chef Alisha created an incredible meal for us !! She’s truly talented ! Can’t wait to go back !
We really enjoyed our dining experience at mfk. The flavors that flowed through these dishes was amazing! Enjoyed the pinchos probably more than the one main dish we split. Worthy of a Chicago Top 10 fish restaurant.
A lot of usual items were not available on the menu. Would not susbitut
We went with the Restaurant Week menu. The hors d'oeuvre were a little acidic but the clam chorizo entree was absolutely spectacular - one of the most soulful broths we have ever had. Excellent cocktails as well.
