The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
Aba exceed my expectations. I went for Chicago Restaurant Week and all the food I selected from the special menu was superb. Definitely will be coming back!
Exceptional service, never snooty. Food wise, the charred eggplant, leg of lamb, and brûlée pie were superb. Cannot wait to go back!
Dinner was excellent and the food was amazing. Definitely shareable sizes so don't overdo it but then again the two of us are small people so judge for yourself. Ambiance and decor is on point and the moment you walk in you feel like you've been transported back in time to a warm vacation trip that you have fond memories of. Definitely great for a date night.
My favorite restaurant. Always great food and great service. Thank you!
Restaurant Week 2020
It was our first experience at Aba and food was great! We had the Chicago restaurant week brunch special and I was surprised how much food we got for only $24 per person. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and I would definitely go back again ;)
We unfortunately had a very poor experience. We went for restaurant week and made our reservation a month in advance, still got seated 1hr after our reservation time. On top of that we got seated in the patio which we were not happy with. We informed them we had an appointment somewhere, considering we got seated so late. We didn’t have anyone come serve us for at least 45 mins after we sat down. The manager then came out to chat with us and apologized. They only comped a $10 hummus on bill that was over $250. We never got our main course and informed them we had an appointment (again). We ended up asking for the check and had to take our main course to go (Literally the main course was boxed up and was given to us at the door). While we were on our way out we informed the manager we continued to have poor experience throughout and he then said “ I am sorry, here is my card, I hope to see you guys back!”. The only positive was our waiter was nice. We will not be back considering this being our 2nd poor experience we have had with this place. We don’t recommend.
David is a fabulous wait professional. He did an exceptional job reviewing the menu with us and making fantastic recommendations. The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was upbeat, fun and engaging.
We came for restaurant week brunch. Three of us ordered three brunch sets. But one of our appetizer never came. And we left without anyone telling us, till we got home and realized never got to try the dark chocolate appetizer. We are disappointed on this. But the food overall was good. And we forgot to use reward card...
Loved my experience at Aba! Very cool space, food was delicious! We had brunch and really enjoyed all of the food and the cocktails that we ordered. Will for sure be going back and will recommend Aba for friends and family who are visiting Chicago!
One of my favorite "new" restaurants in Chicago. Just excellent all around.
Unfortunately, neither my husband nor I were particularly hungry, so we only ordered 3 dishes to share and a bottle of wine. The hummus was good, but the octopus and charred eggplant were outstanding. Most impressively, the chef came to our table to personally apologize for the fact that their greek yogurt machine wasn't working and that dessert wasn't available. Apparently, my husband had sent word in advance that it was my birthday. Overall a nice evening.
Great Food, Good Ambiance, such a cute place!!
We had a wonderful experience! Food was amazing! Service was excellent! Definitely coming back!
My favorite restaurant in Chicago right now! So good. You will not be disappointed!
Great atmosphere, the food was authentic and delicious. I would definitely recommend this place.
My husband and I went here for my 28th birthday and we had a wonderful experience. Everything we got to eat was excellent. We started with the mushroom hummus, followed by the falafel, braised short ribs, octopus and lamb kefta . For dessert, I got the creme brule pie. It was a vary tasty dinner! Our server, Brian C, was amazing! The staff was very attentive and constantly took away plates and filled our water glasses. The only reason why service got a star taken off, was because the staff doesn't make room for you when you are trying to walk past them to use the bathroom/sit back down at your seat. They tended to push past me in such tight quarters instead of waiting for me to pass first like they do at most other nice restaurants.
LOVED IT> Last minute booking -host was exceptional
LOVE the ambience as much as each plate we ordered! Can't wait to return... again!
Perfect Birthday meal. Loved the lighting and ambiance. Fantastic service and food was delicious. We will be back!
We stopped for brunch on Sunday. The atmosphere with the plants and skylight were very romantic. The spreads were delicious. Kafka meals and eggs were delicious. Desert was super. Great drink menu. The service by David and Justin were exceptional. Our new favorite place.
Great atmosphere, great food, great service.
Food and service was excellent. Love the music at Aba! It was my birthday and I got a free dessert which was lovely. Also both the front desk and waiter wished me happy birthday which was really nice. We were not rushed out which was fantastic.
The food and ambiance were perfect.
The only down side was we felt rushed.
You have to order all small dishes at once ,
They are not spaced out. Everything comes too quickly and we felt rushed
We had a birthday dinner celebration. We mentioned this fact on the reservation as well as to our waiter. He confirmed that they’ll send out some birthday dessert at the end of the dinner, nevertheless that never happened.
Awesome waiter, great food and overall great experience
Aba helps make a cold winter evening feel a bit warmer. The ambiance brings me back to summer. The food never disappoints. Love the spreads to start.
Fabulous food in a beautiful, eclectic space
