    Food was outstanding, and our waitress was great. However, Mother’s Day brunch was a bit of a nightmare. Long waits for the food from the kitchen - seems like they were very short staffed for such a big day. We’ve been before and had much better experiences, but a very rough outing this go.

    Food was good. Service was horrible - took us 10-15 mins for our waiter to come by the table to take our order. Same with getting our final bill. Had pre-paid on OpenTable for a pre-fixed brunch menu. Unbeknownst to me, this does NOT include any coffee or the complimentary glass of Prosecco as advertised online, which makes no sense. Ended up spending another $25 for one drink and a cup of coffee. Not worth the hassle and terrible service.

    Thanks for the feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the food at Cira, but we're sorry to hear about the service issues you experienced. We understand how frustrating it can be to wait for service, especially when you're looking forward to a meal. We apologize for the confusion with our pre-paid brunch menu and the unavailability of coffee and complimentary drinks. We will certainly look into this matter as we did give out complimentary Prosecco during brunch. We strive to provide a better experience and we're sorry that we fell short this time. We hope you'll give us another chance to serve you better.

    Cira is a must try. The food, atmosphere and service is 10/10. Chef Pat Sheerin is one of my favorite Chicago chefs. Love he is there and bringing his creative dishes. All the food was fresh and creative. Loved the hummus, carrots, octopus, chicken, pasta primavera and the baba ganoush could be my full meal and I’d be happy. The dining room is gorgeous. Staff is so friendly and they have valet! What else could you ask for?! Love this place.

    Cira in Chicago's vibrant Fulton Market district offers a Mediterranean culinary experience. While the ambiance is warm and inviting, some dishes like the brown butter hummus with chorizo verde and grilled octopus may fall short. However, the housemade pasta stands out. Cira excels in upscale breakfast and lunch options, making it a suitable choice for a relaxed meal without pretension. It may lack fireworks, but it delivers a reliable dining experience overall.
    CiraResponded on May 13, 2024
    Hi John, Thank you for your feedback. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our Mediterranean cuisine and our housemade pasta. We're sorry to hear that our brown butter hummus and grilled octopus didn't meet your expectations. We appreciate your comments and will use them to improve. We're glad you found value in your experience and we hope to welcome you back soon. Best, Cira Management Team

    Joined a group of friends for dinner. Perfect to order a bunch of things to share and explore the whole menu. Really enjoyed the dips, octopus, and pastas. Nothing beats handmade fresh pasta! The combination of flavors for the walleye was exceptional! Can’t wait to go back.

    We got the cinnamon roll, shakshuka, and mortadella sandwich to eat. I also got the golden hour cocktail, which was delightful. The DJ was playing some cool house-vibe music. Service was fast. And they take reservations! I would definitely go back.

    The server was extremely nice and friendly however the service was so slow. We had 5 people and our dinning experience was 4 hours and it wasn’t just all of us catching up. They were out of some things and if they were short staffed never let us know or maybe that’s just how services there is. We just waited a lot to place orders and our beverages were empty including water, a lot. We still really loved the food and server was friendly but with service not great that’s just disappointing.

    This was my second time at Cira. We were a group of four and we tried several different items, all vegetarian. The food was very good to excellent, interesting and not overly rich (oily). The desserts, on the other hand, were only good. The chocolate galette, for example, was not very chocolaty. The service was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive.
