    Overall, this restaurant is overrated and the prices are ridiculous. The parking directions are not clear and the parking sucks….

    The Chemistry restaurant is a Hyde Park be seen place. A younger crowd with a wide array of fashion statements. Waiting for friends to arrive had a double shot of Hennessey VS ..$34..that told me a lot. For appetizer,the salmon strip were okay,nothing out of ordinary and no dipping sauce. A regular lettuce salad. The Chilean Sea Bass was cooked excellently on a little bed of rice and greens. Stress little. Very high priced for moderate return. Expect at least $200-$250 or more dinner tab to start not counting cocktails.

    We sat right next to the bar so it was very busy and heard a lot of profanity and arguing amongst staff
