We stopped in because we passed by and it looked interesting, glad we did. The food was great, and very generous servings. Thought we waited too long between appetizers and main meal, there was large group but still a small group should get consideration as well. Noise level not bad and the server was helpful.

We had a party of 12 for a pre-concert dinner. Great service as they were able to get us in and out in less than 90 minutes. Great pacing with the drink and dinner orders. Efficient but never rushed. No small accomplishment with a large group. Food was excellent all the way around. Our group had everything from traditional Italian dishes, chicken, pork and seafood entrees, pizza, salads, etc. We live in South Loop and Armand’s is a neighborhood gem. Vibrant atmosphere and well laid out open restaurant/bar. Again all made possible by a great waitstaff.

This is a diamond in the rough. The atmosphere and food here is excellent in every way. Delicious and authentic Italian food in very imaginative styles and ways. Chef is very accommodating on a very busy night. Don't come to Chicago and stay only downtown. Come down the South side and each some delicious food.

A group of us went with our kids prior to the Taylor Swift concert. I understand that because of the concert it was unusually crowded, but we waited over 30 min for our table (we had a reservation) and when finally seated there was some confusion over who would be our waiter. At this point we were really running tight on time for the concert. Once things got sorted the food came out in a reasonable amount of time. The food was good-was what you’d expect from a local Italian tavern.

We were seated at 6pm and no one came to our table for 15 minutes. We had to then wave down a waiter 20 minutes later to take our order. Our appetizer came out, but an hour later our meal didn’t come out. No one checked on us and it took over 15 minutes each time to get someone’s attention. We had been there for approximately 1 hr & 45 minutes and asked when our food would arrived. Our waiter disappeared again and we finally cancelled the order. Their solution when we complained was to “tell us next time what happened & we’ll comp some drinks for you,” which is lazy and impractical. They should have comped an item this time, because we certainly won’t be coming back.

We love Armands pizza, house salad and the food in general. Staff is attentive, polite and professional. However, the noise level is excessive and makes us think twice about dining there again. My husband and I sat across from each other and had difficulty carrying on a conversation. Please take additional steps to reduce the noise and we'll happily come back.

Booked while Restaurant was wide open. Seated all the way in back next to kitchen door; not a great start. Service was poor. However that said, food was great which compensated. However my side of pasta was cold. Another one brought and was barely warm. The restaurant was very noisy and hard to hold a conversation amongst the 4 of us. Beer was flat; new keg was explanation.

Overall I would recommend but let’s hope they improve in some basic areas. With Giocco now closed, this is the best bet for Italian in the south loop.

Don't bother setting a reservation because they won't honor it. Had a 7 O'clock reservation and didn't get seated until 8 after being told it would take 10 minutes to set up our table. Food was good tho.

Food was fantastic. Service was ok. One huge issue still pending at this time. The check was split three ways BUT the waiter swiped my card for my third and proceeded to swipe my card a second time for double the amount. I learned of the double swipe immediately per text from my bank. know I inquired showing him the text alert. I was uncomfortable with his explanation as to why the card was swiped twice for two different amounts. Enjoy your meal and be on alert when paying by credit card.

Beautiful bar and restaurant! I've been wanting to eat at this restaurant for a while and we decided to go on Mothers Day. We arrived and were seated at a bar table with stools. I had my 81 year old mother with me. She wasn't thrilled but we stayed put. It was busy but I felt we were an after thought in the bar. We had to ask for bread both times and the little plate they brought for 5 people was ridiculous. The waiter was rushed and rushed us. We knew nothing about the menu or food and he didn't make a great effort to help. My sons never got a beverage and later said they were not asked. The noise was bad enough that casual conversation was difficult. Turn the music down a tad. The food was good but not great for the price. I felt the bus boys and table cleaners had it more on the ball than the wait staff. I would try this place again on a Friday night for drinks not a special occasion dinner.

Don’t ever plan special dinner or book a room with Savannah... worst person to ever deal with. Never returns any call or emails. Booked a room and when we got there there was 4 other parties in our room when we were suppose to have the entire room to ourselves. She made us put a down payment for absolutely no reason because we didn’t even get the private room.

They were a little slow getting a server to us. Once they did, he was very attentive and friendly. The portions are pretty good sized, so we didn't need an appetizer...but we did anyway. Everything was delicious. My wife ordered the Eggplant Lasagna. She said it was one of the best Italian dishes she's had. The restaurant was noisy, but not loud. We enjoyed our visit very much. Definitely worth the stop.
