    Excellent dinner in every way. The food was fabulous---including the watermelon tomato gazpacho, the tarte Tatin (savory) and the duck. And great cocktails too! And I can't say enough about our server, Evan. He was wonderful, gracious, helpful--just perfect in every way. He helped my 90+ year old mom into her uber to go home--what a gracious man. The ambience is lovely---not too loud, but not too quiet--just a fabulous experience in every way.

    We celebrated our 30th anniversary at Brindille with the tasting menu and suggested wine pairings. The food was outstanding, particularly the halibut and the foie gras, but it was all wonderful. Service was impeccable and the vibe was decidedly comfortable and unpretentious. The chef even came out afterwards to wish us well. We loved it and hope to be back soon

Dessert was high point with made to order multi taste delight. Everything was tasty! Went on Thursday night so quiet and comfortable. Will be going many times more JB

    Expensive for interesting food but nothing spectacular that sets this restaurant apart from the many other restaurants in Chicago. Most disconcerting was the lack of bread and when we ordered bread, the cost was $14 for 4 warm rolls that were little different from Parkerhouse rolls in the grocery store aisle. Two of us ordered scallops, there were 3 scallops served in a rather bland milk based sauce. My husband claimed his sole was good but $95 with no side dishes seemed very expensive.
