Amazing unique food and the cutest outdoor decorations. Will definitely be back!
Joanna was our server and made this meal EXCEPTIONAL. She surprised us with a catfish claypot and this entree honestly made the entire meal! They have funky, yet delicious cocktails. If you can, try to get a seat outside and enjoy the meal on their patio.
What a charming bustling place for a fun date night!
Friends get together
Fun delicious food. Great vibe. Helpful wait staff
The burger was def the star of the brunch. I had heard a lot about the burger and it definitely met the expectations I had built up. THe pork jowel brunch dish was also very tasty.
The outdoor seating area was nice. It was communal, but I don’t mind that sort of thing. Our server was helpful and kind, but some of the other staff that delivered our dishes were not very enthusiastic about things. No one explained what we were receiving when dishes were dropped off and people we just kind of unfriendly. The food itself was pretty inconsistent. The empanadas and bone marrow were flavorless and the sisig was super salty. The catfish dish was quite good but that was the only bright spot. Probably won’t return simply because there are so many other restaurants in the area at the same price point but with better food.
Absolutely fantastic all around. Been there multiple times. Had a group of 6 with some out of town friends so was nice try so many dishes since everything is shareable. Burger has always been a favorite and keeps us coming back every time. Can’t wait for the next!
I’m not sure I understand the rave about this place. The flavors were bland, poorly balanced and extremely disappointing.
My favorite place in Chicago.
Mott Street is one of my fave restaurants in Chicago! Great drinks, food, service. My faves are the kimchi empanadas, stuffed cabbage, mussels, burger which is why I bring groups of friends, coworkers when I get a chance.
Overall the dinner was mediocre. We sat outside on a nice night so the ambience was nice and The drinks were good. However, the food was completely bland and tasteless. The only good dish was the dumplings. Very disappointing, especially for the price. Will not be back.
Delicious! Made a reservation but ended up cancelling and sitting at the bar so that we could enjoy the burger. Highly recommend the burger, cocktails and the Boat Noodles!
Had a first date on the patio. Twas perfect. If you are able to eat it, I recommend the bread! So worth it. I cannot wait to go back to try more menu items.
Food came more than one hour after ordered.
Amazing. The kimchi cabbage roll, the broccoli and the cauliflower remain on my tastebuds. One of my favorites
Everything we had here was absolutely amazing! Of particular note are the coconut pancakes — I’ve never had pancakes that were as light and fluffy as these were and have been recommending them to EVERYONE I can think of. The summer melon and soju freeze was refreshing and perfect for the sunny day.
They have the absolute best burger in Chicago! It was actually the best burger we have ever eaten. It’s a little messy, but it’s worth getting your hands a little dirty. If you go, get the burger. You will not regret it.
Have driven by this place a thousand times and finally tried it for dinner. The food is very unique, everything we ordered came out in a timely manner and paced well through the meal. We tried the imperial rolls, scallops, Mott st burger, rabbit, udon kimchi noodles — the rabbit was by far the best thing we tried. Atmosphere is very noisy inside with the windows open so wouldn’t be great for any guests hard of hearing or where you want to visit a bunch. But liked the concept. Food was great, service was so-so. We’d finished our meal and waited about 20 minutes to locate our server and ask for the check, wish he wouldn’t have disappeared on us like that but overall not bad. Unique neighborhood spot.
We came from france to visit Chicago. Mott Street was definitely the best restaurant we went to: thoughtful service, amazing creative food based on quality products, chill and relaxing atmosphere. I definitely recommend
Service was poor. Asked to order everything at the same time and then it all came out very quickly at almost the same time and we had 6 plates on our table. Next time we won’t order all at once because it basically ruined the meal
Food is good the plates are expensive and small you have to order a lot of dishes or leave hungry. My husband was raiding the refrigerator the minute we came home.
2nd time been there and tried more dishes. Stuffed cabbage was really tasty. Didn't care for Steamed dumplings though as they were pretty hard and dry. Other good dishes included Skewers (Shrimp and Pork Belly), Bone Marrow, etc.
Food was all very good; drinks not so much. When you charge $6 for a tiny glass of orange juice, it should definitely be fresh squeezed...we weren't convinced. The Mottmosa was bland and the bloody Mary was very clumping for some reason. The wok-smoked gailan was the favorite dish at the table. Atmosphere is so charming
Best burger in Chicago! We also had the scallops and broccoli which were also fantastic. We always sit at the bar and the staff is always friendly. Mott Street is a must try!
Super awkward service that continued throughout a variety of server changes. Let’s just saw we got two plates before our wine came out... The food was downright bad (we had been before) - the rice was extremely bland and dry, the pork jowl was so salty it burned your mouth, the wings were a flat note of soy sauce and were overcooked (the meat was legit dry), the scallops were the only interesting dish were cooked and seasoned correctly. Then we had the dumplings (fine), and the cabbage that had rice on the top that wasn’t “crispy”, it was actually burnt to the point that you couldn’t chew it/ it was sharp and could cut your mouth if you weren’t careful. The meat inside the cabbage was fine if crock pot pork is supposed to be special. They did the opposite of pace the meal - we felt like we were being blasted with piling plates of mediocre food. I think their reputation has proceeded them and they’re more interested in turning tables than providing a decent meal. Used to be an awesome spot in the neighborhood that has become another Chicago “hot” place to be with crappy food and service.
Great food, absolutely horrible service. So bad that I wouldn't go again, or recommend to a friend. I also had to basically "fight" with the waiter to get him acknowledge my complaints--meanwhile, the table next to us had the SAME complaints, and were given free food, drinks, and apologies throughout their meal.
Service was slow. Many times our waitress was no where to be found, which is difficult considering the meals are not coursed and are served as they come out. White wine served lukewarm, cocktails weak. Some plates were great, while others were underwhelming.
Servers and wait staff were extremely rude and hostile
It was very good!
Every time I dine at Mott Street I am blown away by the food and dining experience! Not only is literally everything on the menu delicious, but the ambiance (out door patio) and service exceptional! Thank you, Mott Street, for a very delicious meal!
Cocktails were good - the dishes tasted very fried, overloaded with sauce - like Chinese takeout. Expected more out of this place.
My girlfriend and I shared 5 dishes, 2 cocktails, and a dessert and we were STUFFED. All but one item on that list thoroughly impressed us. The rabbit laap and pork sisig large dishes were our favorites, both very complex and both VERY tasty. The pork jowl medium dish and tofu small dish were also very good, both hitting on the sweeter notes. The Nam Prik Rita was my favorite cocktail, spicy and full. The dessert was also a very refined spin on mango sticky rice. All elements of it weren’t that special alone but with then combined, the flavor was just right. Mott St has become one of my top 4 restaurants in the city, up there with Kitsune, Avec, and Roister. Thank you Mott St and thank you Lindsey for an AMAZING experience.
Good menu recs from the staff. Food was amazing!! Bar service was a little slow but it was a Friday night and super packed. Good vibes all around.
The food was incredible. Our server was very helpful!
Incredible food and service. We loved the Mott burger the most. We will definitely be back!
Good food and setting. I was disappointed when I asked to add a person and was told there was no room and then sat at a table for about 20 people with 14 empty seats for the duration of the meal.
Love the place so calm and nice to spend the night with friends. Highly recommended
Solid as always. Their fish was excellent and well executed. The sticky rice dessert was also delightful.
