    This was our second time at Chives and we were looking forward to it. Sadly it disappointed. We were seated right as we entered, great. Our waiter came by quickly and took our drink orders, great. Then things went down hill. The drink came after much time had passed and was not as requested. Instead of taking the drink back he just returned with an olive on a stick carried over his extended hand. A little odd - no plates were available? Then the wait began- it took at least 30 minutes before our appetizer arrived. Thankfully the wontons were piping hot & delicious. Then another extremely long wait, no one came to check on us, clear our plates or offer another drink. When our second course, the salad, arrived it came with our main course, the salmon. We had hoped it would be spaced out a bit. Salad had no dressing on it and the salmon was incredibly small for the ticket price. Again our waiter never removed our appetizer plates and never checked in again until he appeared with the bill. Sorely disappointed. Will not be returning .

    First time at Chives, we both had steaks. They were both done perfectly. The appetizers were very good as well. Service was prompt, knowledgeable and courteous.

    Everything was delicious! We had made reservations several months ago and had been told by friends how great Chives is and we really enjoyed ourselves. The service was perfect and we had your whitefish, which was cooked to perfection and the sides were nicely paired. Can’t wait to return, thank you for such an lovely evening.

    Escargot was excellent, very light garlic & butter taste with puff pastry, as was the whitefish special. Paired it with a really nice French Burgundy, which the server said is their ‘house wine’.

    Nice view of Lake Michigan with outstanding service. Creatively prepared Thyme Duck Frites (with a cherry sauce) and encrusted Redfish with mashed potatoes and beans (fish of the day) were very good. Total tab for 2 entrees and salad: $100.

    Unfortunately we had a really undesirable experience with the service we received. Our waiter never checked in with us, never refilled water, never asked if we wanted another drink. We waited an hour for our food, which is fine but never let us know the status. When it came time for the bill we wanted options on how to split it and he was unaccommodating and never even came back to take the bill we had to pay the barcode which only allowed one of us to pay.

    Who serves a bottle of Camyus chilled? ( not just chilled, it was ice cold) Ruined the wine. Then serves it with white wine glasses. Our waiter Dave had Zero personality, not even a greeting to the table! Just walked up and stated the special. First and last time to this special place :/

    Returned to this restaurant after discovering it last year and weren't disappointed. We tried the French onion soup, and it was excellent. For our entrees, we had the mussels and duck. Both very nice. Even the hot baked bread brought at the beginning of the meal was a winner. We followed the waiter's advice and tried the Creme Brule for dessert -- and he was right. A perfect choice.

    We were there for breakfast. The food was very good, nice selection to choose from. It was a little cold inside, but the weather was cloudy and misty so it was likely due to that and it being a little early in the season to have the heat on. I had the salmon benedict and it was fantastic!

    Spent an enjoyable evening as always at Chives. Shared a plate of 6 very fresh oysters with my daughter. Enjoyed my French Onion Soup and Chicken and Goat Cheese wontons. My husband enjoyed his Shrimps with Harissa and Chickpeas. Our daughter enjoyed her Crab cakes. We were seated promptly for our reservation and server came by shortly thereafter to take drink orders and discuss specials. Food arrived in a reasonable timeframe. Server stopped by regularly thereafter to check on us, although he appeared to be very busy. He brought dessert menu at the end of the meal as requested after some delay. Took even longer for him to return to take our order. Fortunately, the triple chocolate mousse was wonderful once it arrived! Only real complaint was length of time for dessert order to be taken and delivered. Otherwise extremely satisfactory!

    Our server was delightful and informative, our oyster and escargot first course impeccable, and my husband loved the salmon special while I loved the cold-smoked salmon with potato pancakes. And his dessert was spectacular -- too rich for me, but he polished it off and didn't even need the box he'd asked for!

    Our waiter, Carlton, was fantastic - spent a lot of time with us, was responsive, and made the dinner more enjoyable. The food was well prepared (though perhaps not quite commensurate with the price charged), however I found the menu selections a bit limiting.

    I questioned why they are serving bottles of red wine out of their cellar at the mid-50s Fahrenheit and subsequently too cold to drink. They must recognize the inconsistency of their wine service as they serve red wine by the glass at the proper room temperature. Also, I question the training of the sommelier that assisted our table as when she decanted our pinot noir she did not even tilt the decanter towards the bottle to maximize the exposure of the wine to air and to aid in the increasing of temperature. The execution from the kitchen is solid but the menu offerings are way too conservative. The kitchen needs to stretch themselves and offer a couple of more challenging proteins. Service was fine. thank you.

    Chives - Baileys HarborResponded on September 8, 2022Thank you for your feedback! We recognize one can enjoy wine at any temperature he or she prefers. Our wine is kept at cellar temperature which ranges from the upper 50's to the lower 60's. Once it has been handled and reaches that table, it is at a temperature most (but not you) prefer to enjoy red wine, between 58 & 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Tilting the decanter actually MINIMIZES air flow (hence why one tilts a beer glass when pouring beer to minimize air flow as foam comes from air flow.)
