    Overall it was good, but if you’re going offer reservations at 8 (and there were later reservations open) don’t push guests out who are still eating drinking. It was really off putting to be told “service has concluded” when I can’t even enjoy the food/wine i paid for.

    Had a team lunch here on a beautiful summer day. They opened up the ‘garage’ doors and had a great breeze. Staff was very nice, knowledgeable and attentive. We loved the Guinness and Black and Tan. Fried cheese curds and pretzel bites were excellent. Not a ton of menu selections, particularly for the vegetarian but the Caesar salad was good. Love the cafe and merch section! Will definitely go back.

    Everything about piccolo Santa was amazing! It was the first time to Chicago so obviously the first time is this restaurant restaurant So sad that it probably be a long time before we go back because we’re from Boston One of the thing that’s hard to accomplish in a restaurant is the ambience. You can have great food, great service, etc. but ambience is something that’s often hard to create. I felt I was at a party or a wedding. Everyone was having fun. We were out on the back patio and it was absolutely delightful on a gorgeous night and we just had a spectacular time.
