The service and the quality of everything at North Pond was spot on. The drinks were well-made and some of the cocktails were quite unique. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff were very nice.
We loved the generosity of the accompaniments served before and after the meal. The four-course meal itself was delicious and each dish was unique and carefully prepared.
The only grouse we had about our meal is that we were still a little hungry after our meal and a couple of us still ended up having a late night snack to supplement.
A lovely experience, an ideal place for special occasions.
Nothing too extravagant but all very good. Very good food, great service and nice place.
One of the best meals I’ve had in a while — delicious food, top-notch service, and beautiful ambiance. Loved every minute of it.
We dined at North Pond for our 1 year anniversary and they treated us to such an incredibly special brunch. The food was wonderful and service impeccable. They even created a menu with "Happy Anniversary" and our names on it that we got to take home. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Food was delicious, service was great! We can't wait to go back!
A truly unique restaurant with amazingly inventive food, beautifully presented. The service is impeccable in a space and setting that makes the dining experience remarkable. It is one of the best celebrational spots we have ever found.
Very nice good and great service. Enjoyed the park and indoor ambience!
Honestly, there are other restaurants with a great views and delicious food too; however, you will not find any better staff and service than those at the North Pond.
Simply amazing experience from the ambiance to the staff to the meal.
Beautiful setting. great service, outstanding food an wine. I especially loved the savory creme brulee with truffles that comes with the cheese dessert.
We are so pleased with our experience at North Pond. The food was phenomenal, the service was personalized and responsive, and the ambiance was perfect.
Will definitely return for future celebrations.
Memorable meal. Wow!!! What a treat!
The service, the food and all the extras because it was my birthday -it was the best birthday present ever.
Absolutely spectacular service, food, and ambiance. The price was well worth the experience, especially compared to other similar places. If you have a chance, definitely go!
Went for brunch -- menu was reasonably priced and creatively conceived. Food was good but service was exceptional. Truly some of the friendliest and most helpful staff anywhere around!
Great service, atmosphere and food
We were greeted and seated immediately. Our waitress came soon thereafter with menus and gave us plenty of time to make our choices. All the food was delicious. And, thankfully there was no canned music, just the hum of people having conversations. We could actually hear each other! Overall it was a lovely experience and I will go back again and again.
Absolutely amazing venue. Impeccable service. Unique and delicious food and wine pairings. What a memorable special evening!
My favorite restaurant experience ever!
Food was amazing as was the service!
North Pond is a very special experience! The prix fixe menu has great variety, high quality local ingredients and service with a beautiful presentation.
A beautiful evening with great food and company. Staff was excellent!
Jeff made the entire night, request him!
Second time we've been here this September. Food was spectacular on both occasions. Both times there was a bunny hopping around on the patio where we were seated. This time a couple of chipmunks scurried about as well. Gorgeous setting for fine dining.
Very nice. We stayed and talked for over four hours.
Service and add on dishes were fantastic! I really appreciate the efforts to make the night special.
A very special experience, superbly executed from start to finish!
Outstanding! The food, wine, service, and atmosphere were all top-notch. Highly recommend.
Wonderful anniversary celebration! Thank you.
I went with friends and had the tasting menu with wine pairings. One of my friends is a gourmet chef with her own highly-rated restaurant in Michigan. We ALL enjoyed the food, esp. the creative and sophisticated layers of flavors. The wine pairings were delightful with none of the usual suspects. The wait staff was thoughtful, professional, and knowledgeable while still being friendly. Very nice ambience. Not stuffy. The only thing I would prepare people for is the bill. This is an expensive place. Worth it, in my opinion, but dinner for four -and two of us had no alcohol- cost me $750 with tip. (Great service should always be rewarded accordingly.)
A lovely evening! Excellent food and service. Conversation friendly noise level. Highly recommend for a special evening.
Wonderful food, great ambiance, fantastic service. An unforgettable experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. The food was creative and delicious, and our server was attentive and very pleasant. We enjoyed the wine pairing with dinner, and thought the wines selected were great matches for the food. We were concerned about the short walk from where we parked, as one of us has difficulty walking, but it was not bad, and we wouldn't let that stop us from going again. We're very happy we chose this restaurant for a meal during our stay in Chicago.
North Pond was the perfect spot for our anniversary dinner. The personalized menus for us to take home were a very nice touch. Each course of our meal was delicious and the wine pairings fit perfectly. We enjoyed every bite and sip.
We enjoyed our visit. Food was good, service was excellent
Wonderful venue. Best view in town. Outstanding food and service.
My two children and I came to Chicago from Mississippi to celebrate my 60th birthday by eating at North Pond. It was everything and more that I was hoping for.
One of the best restaurant experiences my wife and I have ever had. The staff were incredibly friendly and dedicated to their work. The ambiance both inside and outside of the restaurant was beautiful. The food and drinks were out of this world. If you are looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion or an upscale meal, North Pond should be top of your list.
