Went on a date here. Delicious food and cocktail. I tried the tequila one (can't remember the name.) We also had the tartare as an appetizer and the skirt steak. Cooked and seasoned very well! Will return!

Dined here for the first time today. Patio seating was awesome with seating spaced for social distancing. The food was AMAZING! We had the Grain Salad and Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings... creating our own tapas style dinner. The dinner cocktails were good too. The music was loud and the selection left ALOT to be desired. If they change the music to something from this decade this place would get 5 Stars all around.

It was nothing special. Overall just a simple okay. The highlight of my experience was the sangria. Food was okay but small portions; I got the salmon. My daughter eat the burger and she stated it was great.

We went to eat there during phase 3 in Chicago On Father's Day. We had a reservation and the table was ready for us the hostess with pleasant. The server was Also pleasant brought us water answered all their questions. When the food with hot and ready somebody brought it to our table we were able to get refills on water and any items that were missed on the 1st carry out. The paloma very day was an excellent drink the hamburger with all the trimmings with a media saying they have the best pancakes and bacon and hash Browns I think I might have ever had they were so crispy and delicious all 3 items. The hash Browns felt kind of leg mashed potatoes and then formed into little like a brick and then deep fried whose delicious. Over all we had a wonderful experience

Excellent place, amazing burger and fries. Drinks are great and they have large format cocktails for the table. Most of all, their seating was effectively distanced for COVID. They care about their customers. Do it. Go here.

Great brunch. Plenty of coffee, loved the pancakes, breakfast burrito, & good texture of the sausage. Didn’t love potatoes but I think that’s a personal preference.
Clean, welcoming, delicious.

This was the first place I have been to after the COVID-19 shutdown. Great service, clean, and maintained the proper social distancing guidelines. Great ambiance and the cocktails were super nice. The food was not that warm (it may be something I got) but I understand that restaurants are getting back up to speed so didn't have that high of an expectation. Cocktails were amazing- my favorite was the matcha and Gin cocktail.

Overall my friend and I truly enjoyed our meal, the ambiance and energy of City Mouse. Unfortunately, I had to rate the service three stars as one of the three servers we had was quite condescending towards my friend when she mentioned she did not care for the salmon. His response was, “well, no one else has complained about it”. My friend and I just looked at each other in disbelief. He seemed a bit put off, while anxiously hovering over us. Nevertheless, she went on to order the Avocado toast which she enjoyed very much. Everything about our meal and drinks were wonderful, once my friend ordered the Avo toast. I also ordered the Turmeric Ginger tea with a spot of almond milk and honey. I’m not sure what kind of raw honey it was, but I could eat it by the spoonful! Again, we had a really good first experience overall. I’m sure we’ll be back.

Second time in a month! Went in February for restaurant week and again for a date with a special someone. Server was Joe (he was incredible both times)! The food is amazing, the plush cushion seating is comfy and cozy. Loved it both times and will recommend to others.

My wife and I enjoyed a pre-theater dinner. The drinks were creative and delicious! The food was wonderful. Service (Aaron) was friendly, attentive and helpful. Standouts were the beet salad, squash salad, and duck breast. Space is airy and modern. Highly recommend!

Many dishes were great (tagliatelle with shrimp, country mouse, delicata squash, steak frites) but the burrata with celery and cauliflower was the worst dish I've had at a restaurant in years. Also gelato tasted like ice cream that has been in the freezer for months.

Our experience was ok, and for the price we just didn't think it was worth it. Best thing on the menu were appetizers- we had the pull apart bread, ricotta anglioti, and squash. All were very good. The mains were just ok. Steak cooked perfectly but oversalted, pork overcooked and dry, duck overcooked and chicken bland. Small portion sizes as well. Desserts were mediocre at best, we had a dry chocolate cake. Best dessert was the winter citrus posset. We were never offered coffee or tea, or any additional drinks after the bottle of wine we ordered was empty. Overall we enjoyed the company of our friends but would not go back to City Mouse for a meal- not worth the price and better food to be found elsewhere.
