About

City Winery - Chicago is the second of its kind, following the New York City flagship’s model: It’s a functioning winery, a top-notch music venue, and a full-service restaurant, all housed in a massive 33,000-square-foot facility in the West Loop.

The wines are exceptional: Grapes are imported from renowned regions around the country, then crushed and aged on site. Wines are poured by the glass or bottle, with many available on tap.

The menu features Mediterranean-inspired small plates designed to complement our extensive wine list. Burrata, arancini, flatbreads, and hearty meat dishes are varied enough to please a diverse crowd over a few rounds of wine. Servers are happy to point you toward their favorite bites and paired wines, and with a concert next door almost any given night, dinner at City Winery means there’s always something fun to experience.

The tables are too close together. It was too many people in one place.

I have been coming to city winery for my birthday since it opened. This time the service was awful, our server went 30mins without checking in without refilling drinks. Burgers were overdone and we didn’t get the order we asked for. It was a waste of an expensive meal. I won’t be coming back for my birthday with my family next year.

I really enjoyed my experience at City Winery. We had a large party, I was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency, friendliness and excellence of the service. The food was great - the grilled salmon was delicious! I would definitely return for dinner.

If your going to a concert it’s very convenient to eat in the dining room first. Salmon was good.
I think they need better champagne choices and Prosecco choices.

It was a family dinner/show Christmas present. There were 10 of us and we enjoyed the dinner and the show. We are already talking of doing the same next year.

I love City Winery although the current menu items aren’t the greatest selections. The quality of the food is great but there aren’t a lot of items that I wanted to try this time.

Everything was great from start to finish. We were on a time constraint and our server was amazing at accommodating us. We walked in the door and were greeted and given wine samples-can’t beat that-and seated immediately. We ordered a variety of dishes to be shared. The wine soaked mushrooms were amazing! We also had the rosé and the whiskey barrel aged Cabernet which was smooth and delicious. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves wine and good food. We will definitely be back without a time constraint so we can stay and enjoy even more!! Thank you City Winery for a wonderful birthday dinner!!

The food was excellent. Pleased my vegetarian wife and my carnivorous teenager. However, the wines--particularly the wines from City Winery itself--were disappointing. I had a flight of whites and roses; I did not want a full glass of any of them.

We enjoyed the Winery and learned that they have concerts each evening. So, we are planning on attending one in the future. Great place and good wine.

The service was terrible. We were seated for 30 minutes without being attended to. After 30 minutes, we reported this to the manager and were greeted with drinks.
After our food arrived, we were only checked on once throughout our 3 hour dinner. Fortunately, the food and atmosphere made up for the delay.

Just a wonderful place to dine and hear music. The venue is well-configured and the convenience of moving between restaurant and music hall is tops.

Their computer system went down so we had to line up single file by the point of sale - other than that it was good

This is the place to go for dinner and a show if you also like to try new wines. They import grapes from various wine growing regions and make good wine from them on site. They pair this up with an interesting menu fit for wine tasting, but also for those who don't indulge in the vino. The service was very good. If I were rating the food on its own without the accompanying wine, I'd give it a B+. The wonderful thing is that they have an attached venue with various concerts rotating through. When you're done with your meal, you can continue sipping your wine next door wile listening to great music! A great place to go for a special night out!

The restaurant was beautiful and the hostess was so pleasant and welcoming. We came in for a concert and had the best time at the show. Our waiter at the restaurant was rude when we were choosing our wine. We didn’t want to ask any questions about the food after his response to our wine questions. He also had an odor. Everyone that served us our wine and food did a great job our main waiter was just rude. Overall, I would come back and hope to get a different waiter.
