Located in Chicago's Ravenswood neighborhood, Band of Bohemia strives to offer a pairings-based experience, beginning with our rotating collection of culinary-inspired session ales brewed in-house. Our seasonally influenced menu is driven by the philosophy that one can create a unique beer that is appropriate, if not essential, to a finer dining experience.

One of the most beautiful dining rooms in Chicago. Guests are treated to excellent service, and the menu is wonderful.

Food was good. Portions were small for the price. Great setting and very comfortable. Interesting menu. Portions could have been larger. Good service.

the best two hour meal I have had in awhile. Maybe since the last time at Band of Bohemia. A very luxuriating and excellent dining experience.

Band of Bohemia is about as good as it gets in Chicago. Great food, beautiful atmosphere, excellent beer, outstanding wine service and a highly professional staff to serve you. What more could you ask for?

We were looking forward to splurging on a donut or the pecan roll, but immediately we were told they were out, plus a range of the limited menu items. A little disappointed also that they didn't have a standard brunch alternative

Have always wanted to go here, and finally decided to for my wife's birthday. The food was artisanal and delicious, the beers were great too and made in-house. Unfortunately my first choice for the beer was tapped out. Regrettably, I had the same experience when ordering food: of the 5 dishes on the menu only 3 were available.

On top of the limited menu options, service was exceptionally slow. While I received my beer quickly, my wife waited literally 35 minutes for her coffee, and only then were able to finally order food. Our servers were difficult to track down and often short and rushed when we asked them anything. Poor service in general, but especially from a Michelin star rated restaurant.

I wouldn't say the birthday was ruined, but this was far the experience we were hoping for.

Excellent food and service! We did the tasting menu and each course was fresh and innovative and a joy to experience. Courses also were timed well, so we never felt rushed or bored from waiting. Band of Bohemia is now among our most favorite restaurants in the city. Oh, and the beer is top-notch!

Fantastic overall experience! An excellent value for such a high quality meal! My wife and I both got the tasting menu and it was great. Very interesting, unique dishes and the drink pairing were on par. Service was excellent, food was outstanding, drinks were delightful, parking was free, what more could you ask for? We will definitely be returning and recommending this place to our friends!
