Our server Tom was a delight! He gave us excellent recommendations and the food was outstanding. The view was lovely. After dinner we went to the roof and there was another lovely area with a fab view.

The cocktails were nice, but I was a little disappointed that the off menu drink I ordered was not created, and I instead was given a speciality drink that the bartender chose himself. If you don’t know how to make it, tell me and give me the option to choose.
The food was good, the shaved vegetable salad was amazing. I wish there was more of a chocolate or warm flavored type of dessert available (the only option was cheesecake). The service was great, and the restaurant is just lovely.

It was a Saturday evening and The restaurant, while not even half full was out of a lot of things on the menu - including some alcohol. They also didn’t offer concession until the end when one of my dinner party of 6 suggested it.
We will not be going back.

Service not great. Had to ask another server for our server, and he did not really check on us. Took awhile to get water, etc. It got better through out our time there, but it was quite disappointing.

Great brunch food but a long wait for it. Waiter did not check on us often and did not seem to know or care that we still hadn’t received our food after being at the table for an hour. The ambiance was very nice and we loved the view. Belgian waffle and eggs Benedict were some favorites!

What a great spot! Ladies night out celebrating a birthday. Fantastic food—we ordered 1 of every side and all were delicious and the entrees were also excellent. Great cocktails comfortable seating, cozy upscale sleek surroundings plus great service—we will go back for more and you should too!

A lovely atmosphere, good food, and very attentive service. My only complaint is that both of the seafood dishes on the menu contained meat of some sort and there were no vegetarian options.

Great spot, great views, great food. We had a special celebration and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The place was slow that evening so we had a special moment. The food was fantastic - who knew a biscuit could be an appetizer! Drinks were priced on the high side but they were good.

The waiters are very nice but the restaurant seems to need more of them. The service is good, but the food is super slow and the prep of the tables, etc. could use some extra non-waiters. I think they take for granted it is in the hotel and so people will eat there. Also, we had to wait 15 min to be seated when there were a ton of empty tables, but we were told there were reservations for brunch. I found it super off-putting since they were obviously not very busy. The food tastes good, but it comes out a bit cold. Definitely not what I would expect for such a high end hotel. It would be very easy to pinpoint problems if someone just sat back and watched the machinations for 30 min. We have been here multiple times and it always seems to be the same. Except for the weird wait for a table. That is a bit new.

Can’t take your drink from restaurant to bar, but can take bar drink to restaurant-fail.
Ordered a bottle of Cloudy Bay which came to $134-huge fail and way over priced. I wish I would’ve paid more attention to the waiter who just assumed we wanted the most overly priced bottle of wine ever. He also forgot one of our salads.
I will visit the bar again but not the restaurant

This is a place where you can get a decent breakfast/brunch, but just decent. For the quality of the food, it was definitely overpriced. $20 for an alright eggs Benedict and $18 for a small spinach omelet is ridiculous. The food is not nearly good enough to warrant that price tag. There are definitely better places you can go, not just in Chicago but I’m that very same area. The view was nice, though.

Baptiste & Bottle was great for our Sunday couple brunch. The DIY bloody Mary and mimosa bar was a fun addition to the awesome menu and fabulous view of the Chicago skyline. Bottomless cocktails end at 2pm, so an earlier reservation would've made it perfect.

Really great views! The menu is a bit pricey for the portion size, but everything we got was tasty. The biscuit is worth $10! The scallops were good, but I've had better. I got the NY strip, which was a pricey $55, but delicious. Can't really go wrong with an NY strip in a nice restaurant. However, the free range bison is what stuck out the most. It was cheaper than the strip but so unexpectedly DELICIOUS. It comes medium rare and believe me, you wouldn't want it any other way. The service was nice. The server didn't stop by too often, which was perfect. He made sure to provide us with everything we needed. The view is PHENOMENAL. Even on a dreary day, it was beautiful. The only true negative was that their bar cart option on the drink menu was nonexistent and hasn't been since January, according to our server. That was definitely something we wanted to try out with this restaurant so that was disappointing. We had an starter and 3 entrees between the 2 of us and our total came to about $250.00.

Recently visited here with friends. We were told that they may not have a table available but once seated there were more then enough tables that were empty. Our meal was good and we all loved what we ordered but the service was lacking. It took a long time for our waiter to come around and take our drink order and then again a food order. We would've liked to have a second drink but once our food was delivered our server only offered the bill. Not sure if they were understaffed or if service is always similar but I would not come here if you are hoping a for a quick meal.

The host with the braided hairstyle she elevated the dining experience from the moment you walk in by just welcoming you with her confidence. David Sanchez serving with grace and style. The food was delicious we will be back with corporate colleagues and friends in the future. Thank you to all the brunch staff.

Delicious entrees made with great care and imagination. Just the right amount of food and beautifully presented. I hate when I get a insurmountable mound of excess on my plate. The chef obviously cares about the quality, not obscene quantity of food. The bison steak was tender, flavorful and cooked just as ordered. They have a small menu, but each item seems to have been thoughtfully prepared. Very classy, but warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff was very accommodating to our unusual circumstances. We will definitely be back. Oh yes, the cocktails were exquisite and the bourbon/whiskey selection phenomenal! It's not a cheap all you can eat place, it's somewhere you go for excellent quality and exquisite taste sensation.
