I expected hotel prices but the food was bland and uninspired, making it a poor value. The coffee was terrible, very acidic. I asked them to make a fresh pot. That cup was equally undrinkable. I asked the server if I could have a cappuccino instead and why, and she said “I know. We gets lots of complaints. I can get you a cappuccino from the café next door.” That was nice of her. The cappuccino wasn’t great either, but drinkable. The outdoor seating was nice, and actually why I picked this place to meet a friend, but I won’t be back.

The server was so rude. He only talked to us to take our order and never checked on us till he gave us the check. He then gave an attitude because we needed the check was split. The other workers were so nice there besides the server.

We went for breakfast based on a recommendation from a friend. My son said “These are the BEST pancakes I ever had.”

A busy Sunday morning clearly stresses a staff that seemed a bit understaffed. Food choices and menu were reasonable especially when they allowed you to improvise a bit.
A comfortable place perhaps on less busy days.

Disappointing breakfast. The waffle was great. The omelet was pitiful. It was thinly cooked scrambled eggs with boiled spinach and we had to hunt for the slivers of avocado. Really disappointing. They forgot my sausage too.

Went to Miss Ricky's for Mother's Day brunch while in town for our daughter's college graduation. We had a reservation and sat down immediately. Waitress wished me a Happy Mother's day and we were served quickly and accurately. She even recommended the Eggs Benedict bowl and it was fantastic! Would love the recipe for their potatoes. They had rosemary and lemon I think and were just delicious! A place I will return to for brunch!

I sat in a booth and sunk so low, my chin was even to the table.
The items on the online menu may not be available in the restaurant.
Friend preferred a salad and the chicken was dry.

Our server was fantastic. I wish the bathrooms were closer though, you have to walk up to the second floor lounge of the hotel, it’s quite far. Food tasted great but was a bit pricey.

Food was very good and we were with a sizeable group all were served accurately. My only complaint was I was with a disability person who could not use the stairs to get to the washrooms on the second floor and the elevator to floor 2 was locked without a room key. Maybe lock from floor 3 and up for hotel guests but allow access to restaurant/bar floors? Thank you!

always consistently good:
tried something new this time.
avacodo toast with poached egg

with yummy sauce.
depending on what you order
can be alittle pricey.

Stayed in the Virgin hotel and ate here for breakfast. Had the American breakfast, simple, but very good. Will come back here next winter if they offer the elf dinner! Missed it in 2018.

This is our go to spot for Christmas morning breakfast and it never fails to be great. They offer some unique breakfast items, but you can also just get standard breakfast items. The staff is always friendly despite having to get up and work on Christmas morning. We are very grateful that they are open on Christmas, as while visiting Chicago every Christmas we are pleased to find a gem like this open.

We came for the Elf Spaghetti, and loved everything that Miss Ricky’s had to offer! The staff was incredibly hospitable and we enjoyed everything we had from the menu! The Power Protein bowl was a delicious balance to the sugar bomb of the Elf Spaghetti! We had to indulge, though.... We would definitely visit again!

Worked well for an impromptu business lunch. Wasn’t that busy and service was good, but I felt like it could have been better (more attentive) due to limited customers in the restaurant. My dish was the eggs benedict bowl which was fantastic! Would definitely go back.

There is no kids menu, which would have been ok except the servers had zero interest in making our family comfortable or adjusting to our needs. Small things like enough forks and straws for everyone seemed like a bother to our servers. The food tasted good, but wouldn’t go back.

The diner was cold. The waiter indifferent...our food sat under lights for 10 minutes and arrived cold; waiter had walked by our table several times and did not pick up the food (I could see the orders, but didn't know if they were ours). They did remake the orders and a different server brought them. Bench seat was too low for the table height. Food was ok, nothing special. A disappointment overall.

Ordered the Cobb salad for $20 (with chicken). Not much flavor and serving size very small. My guest had the double burger. It was ok for a fast food type option but expected higher quality meat at these prices. I assume grade of meat not best because they don’t ask how you would like it cooked - just cooked it well done. The positive was the service. We were seated by a very pleasant hostess and had a very nice waiter. Food was only negative.
