The service was very very very slow. Ruined the experience. Had birthday dinner and kind of soured the evening. Food was good and so was the environment. Not sure I would go back for dinner.

We enjoyed our time eating here and really appreciated that the manager had one of the TV screens on a football game we wanted to watch! Our waitress, Kelsey, was attentive and friendly, which made our experience fun. We will be back!

We had never been to City Works..and wanted to try something new. It's a lovely facility. Our waitress, Victoria was outstanding. I just think it was a little over priced for the portion sizes. And the beer selection can be overwhelming, if you don't know your way around craft beers. Do some research. But, our server was there to answer all our questions. I don't know if we'd go back....maybe to entertain friends. But, we'll see.

We had the grilled chicken sandwich and the fried chicken sandwich. Both were decent sandwiches but not fantastic. Fries were good, service was good.

It is a lively, stylish sports bar setting. The staff are all friendly, professional, and considerate. The food choices are delicious! I love dining here, having a bite to eat, drinking a beer or glass of wine, and checking out the sports on TV.

Glad to see a Chicago Restaurant waking up to Vegan recipes. Wish more restaurants would wake up like like City works. Only complaint would be no vegan dessert.

Giovanni,
To sum him up, you would be crazy to let him go if not promote him to the head Server/Trainer.
Giovanni noticed I was slackin on my cocktail and could tell I didn't care for it. Offered me a different one.
10 second greet AND our 2 bite check back as well to see if our meal was up to our standards.
OUR FIRST TIME THERE AND NOT OUR LAST. Highly recommend!!!
Thanks again Giovanni

I met a friend for lunch at 1 pm, and the first disappointment was that we discovered that they have a reduced "brunch menu" before 3 pm on weekends. I ordered their chopped salad, which was described as containing grilled chicken, romaine, iceberg and red leaf lettuce, along with bacon and blue cheese crumbles. What I got was a large bowl of what looked and tasted like baby kale, and I encountered maybe three small pieces of bacon, and two small blue cheese crumbles. There was a large amount of chicken....almost too much. My friend had the Ahi Tuna salad, which she said was very good. I have had dinner at City Works and the menu has much more to choose from.

First time there and did not know that they had a special menu on the weekends before noon and there was no chicken on the menu and I dont eat fried or hamburger. They were able to accommodate me with a nice grilled chicken breast. Server was very nice also. I would recommend but its not cheap eats.

The presentation of the food was done well. The salmon dish was good however would have been better with less salt. Beet salad, roast the beets. It appeared they were from a jar/can. A manager touched our table, that was great.

Food was great. The pork chop was delicious. Service was extremely slow but they were very nice. The tables were all high with high seats or c-shaped. Not ok when you are short and can’t get up on the high seats too easily or when you are with friends at the c-shaped tables and it’s difficult to talk.

Food is salty..... the salad without dressing was salty! Who puts salt on a salad.? Earlier in the week we went to Wheeling. Impossible burger was very salty! The fries are salty! I love the vibe in the restaurant and I will try it one more time! Hopefully I can remember to ask for no salt!

Great food and great staff! Lots of TVs and a nice outdoor seating area.
We tried the Buffalo shrimp, Smoked Chicken Wings and Filet Mignon Sliders. My 6 y/o had the Kids flat bread pizza.
We enjoyed the food! It had great flavors and filled us up!
An overwhelming selection of beers, a list of cocktails and wines as well.
Definitely recommend trying it out!
