BellyQ has turned into one of my favorite restaurants to take first time Chicago visitors who want a great and interesting meal at totally reasonable prices. Never disappoints!
Our service was excellent, the food was delicious our experience was wonderful!
So sad to see BellyQ go! Happened to pop in for dinner and drinks before a show and found out they were closing the next week. Fantastic time.
Relaxing ambiance. Small portion sizes but unique flavor. Great for a date night
Excellent Food and Service. Family style option was great for our party of 8.
WE have been to BElly Q since they opened and always enjoyed it. They recently changed the menu and the selections were limited and the food not up to their usual standard. The noodle dishes were supposed to have meat in them and the dishes were very small with almost no meat. The food in general was greasy and unappealing. It seems as though they have changed their focus from food to drink. On a Saturday night at 8:00 pm, the restaurant was half empty. Not a good sign.
Order the Thai Basil Beef; you won't be disappointed. Staff was extremely accommodating of our hearing - impaired father-in-law. Enjoyable dining experience!
My husband and I were in town for a concert at the United Center & went to BellyQ as it was a referral from friends....it proved to be a very very good referral in deed!
I’ll be back soon! EVERYTHING WAS GREAT. I tried the dessert this time, blew my mind away :)
The grill experience was exceptional. Good amount of food and quality sauces & dips to go with the meat. Can't say enough good things about our experience. Highly recommend!
Portions were a little small, but flavors were huge.
Japenese whiskey seemed overpriced. Would have enjoyed a glass of hibiki harmony which they added the word pure to it but that was 20 a shot for a $60 bottle.
the food is always amazing and fast. Friendly staff and great service.
Best Asian fusion I ever had. Savory and yummy food. Interesting menu. Server was really nice too.
It was first time at restaurant and lucked into being sat at grilling table which opened other menu options. Everyone decided to go with grilling menu which was fun if you don't mind cooking your own food. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable - I don't think there was ever an unwanted empty glass at the table. The only let down for me was the limited dessert menu.
The food was fabulous. Found the interiors and lay out to be very cold and not inviting.
Fun, enjoyable restaurant
Salmon was delicious. The shortribs were too much work. Not tender and cut with the bone in the center of each piece.
great happy hour!!
Great food! Great people! Great location! Great restaurant! I highly recommend it...you will not be disappointed!
So pleasantly surprised. Right off the bat the ambiance and decor was amazing. The service was very team oriented. The food was great, portions were on the smaller side, but price was fair I think. Will def. Return with friends.
It was my wife’s birthday weekend. Wanted to try place new and different. BellyQ was recommended. It was a good vibe and good service.
Awesome grill experience!
Good food, good drinks, good friends, good food.
The food is pricey and mediocre. Service was good.
Given the other reviews, I had expected something more interesting and of better quality. It was just okay.
I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant, nor would I ever return. The. Bar área was the nicest areas at the small seated area. The bartender was friendly and knew his merchandise. We then moved to restaurant for dinner. The booths were cold, hard and uncomfortable. The portion sizes were minuscule, food was nothing special. The waiter had no information and couldn’t answer any of my questions. The dessert menu was ridiculous, every item was served with a soft serve “Dairy Queen like ice cream.” The whole experience was a huge disappointment!!!!
Fantastic dinner date with husband before U2 concert at United Center. Valet offered to keep car until after concert which was a cost savings and provided a refreshing about five block walk to venue (big crowd walking back in same direction after concert). Host anticipated people going to concert and directed people quickly with utmost care and friendliness. Sat in bar for happy hour and stayed in comfy chairs for dinner. Don’t miss the sticky chicken wings and dumplings! Bartenders evening choice of beverage was a blood orange negroni...instant relaxation and refreshment. Tea Smoked Duck Bolo Noodle dish was on the small side but the sauce was exciting. Definitely revisit worthy.
a favorite of ours, great service while eating at the bar, and tonight extra special as Chef Bill Kim came out and talked to us, and even made us a special desert!
Bill Kim is a great chef and great host
The food was pretty good but not as great as we expected. We ordered several different dishes. Some were great and others were just ok. Portions were a little too small. Service was great. Will try again.
Awesome experience! Fried rice was the best. The rest was meh. But our server was top notch and so was the sake!
I was looking forward to another night at BellyQ since I haven't been in about 2 years. The food was just as great as I remember, however the pacing was off. We ordered a rice dish that came ~20 minutes after every other dish and we were full by that time.
It was a bit more noisy then I remember, and at times we didn't see our waitress (she must have been tied up with the big derby party)
Great dinner with an old friend. Definitely go back
There isn't anything that we don't LOVE about BellyQ and Urban Belly. The chef is outstanding creating a fusion of culture. The ambiance is perfect for any occasion and the staff is exceptional. We particularly loved meeting the Catering Director, Loren Hall. She has an incredible spirit and is so welcoming. She gave us many ideas of what to order and every one of her suggestions were outstanding.
Birthday and celebrating friends visiting from out of town
Great meal! Loved all the meat and seafood we got to grill! Everything was awesome :)
Food was ok. Restaurant had an ant problem. Won't be going back
Staff treated us very well, excellent double grill table!
One of my favorites places to dine, they switched up the menu alittle. I thrown off at, but i tried eveything new and of course another HOMERUN.......its always a pleasure to dine at BellyQ
