Very fun date night! We went for dinner and a show (the magic cabaret show) and had a very fun time. The speakeasy is upstairs on the 3rd floor, and decked out beautifully. The food was really delicious and the drinks were strong! We will visit again!

First time patrons and it was fantastic! Went for Sunday Italian Feast and thoroughly enjoyed the Sinatra music and food. The ambiance and Speakeasy decor added to the festivity and promoted picture taking. Can’t wait to try the prime rib on Wednesday!

Overall very good dinner and loved the speakeasy and period ambiance!.... I guess the only thing I could suggest would be to offer a wider variety on your menu😁

Amazing decor, style and theme. Set in the historic Arcadia theater, there are many artifacts and fun little things to discover. The night we went had a free magic show that was awesome. I would love to see them do a little more with the food, it's pretty basic. We ordered the charcuterie, mini sandwiches and flatbread. the Charcuterie needs more significant cheeses and not just deli-style meats. The sandwiches are okay, but could use some innovative sauces, or other accoutrements. Drinks were innovative and historical. Overall, it's the experience that makes the night.

We came for Magic night and had a good time. The food was tasty and Ken Mate is always entertaining. The only thing that needs to be figured out is who is there to see the show ... and who is there to drink. There was a table or two that could not care less what was happening on stage and it made it difficult for us to enjoy the show. I could tell the performer was even struggling to get control of the room. I sure hope this works out as Magic is very popular these days and there's no where in the suburbs to see some quality entertainment on a regular basis.

It was very interesting having the bookshelf opened up to a beautiful restaurant on the other side. Ambience was great. So many nostalgic things to look out. Menu was small but perfect. Started with the tomato, basil,mozzarella salad in cute cups, then the baked salmon was done to perfection. Ended with Limencello dessert was perfect touch

Great atmosphere and very fun early 20th century environment. While the food menu offers barely a handful of choices and the music volume is way too loud, I'm willing to recommend the venue for what is otherwise well worth the trip. And to concede that everywhere I like to go the music is way too loud. Lol. Great and comfortable environment. Early 20th century speakeasy is fun to look at and experience. The music is amazing, the drink menu is diverse and fun. The staff are quick and lively and the food very tasty. I will be coming back.

I’ll say that the atmosphere is pretty awesome. My bf and I got there early and we walked around saw all the different rooms and decorations. We sat down had our drinks. I had the flapper girl floozy. This was so good I could of had about 4 more. If you’d like sweet fruity drinks I recommend it. My bf got the thyme for whiskey. I’m not a huge fan of whiskey but he enjoyed it. He also got the bees knees. This one wasn’t bad it was just very lemony. The food was just ok. Nothing special like everyone made it out to be. I had the salmon. The vegetables kind of tasted like they were previously frozen. The salmon didn’t have much of a maple glaze to it. My bf had the sandwich flight. I felt like the meats were from the frozen food section it was not that good. We were there before the band began. We were seeing show in the theater so we couldn’t stay. There was a magician during dinner. He was so nice and did an excellent performance at our table. All in all we will be coming back just for performances and cocktails.

Manhattan (Jim Beam) was $12.50 or $13.50 -a very pricey and watered down drink in comparison with T&T and V&T and custom blended blackberry brandy. Chicken Wings - 3 for $8.00 and one was very scrawny but tasty - not a good portion at all - most restaurants give you about 6. Loved the salmon and my husband loved the mini slider sandwiches. Our waiter , Jackson, was wonderful as a person and very attentive to our table from our arrival at 6pm to departure around 10:30pm . The Flat Cats were a fun group but seemed like dance floor too small/crowded.

Unique place! Loaded with antiques from th Speakeasy time frame. Many rooms with memorabilia in each, and out of the way places to enjoy a cocktail! The servers are dressed for the Roaring 20’s, and ours was attentive and fun! They all seem to help each other out, and making the experience more fun. The menu is very small if you are looking for a large meal. We did the Small Plates, with a appetizer, and there was plenty to eat! The Lemoncello flute was a perfect dessert! It worked out perfect before a concert at the Arcada Theater! We will do it again!

This place was outstanding! It was much more than we expected! It was as if we walked into an actual 1920's speakeasy. There are so many items on display that I recommend a "walk around" tour of the place prior to dinner or drinks. The staff was outstanding...including their authentic attire. The show itself was great too! Well work the $10 charge. Will definitely go again.

Did a flat bread as an appetizer. All was excellent....service was great and you cannot beat the convenience when attending a concert at The Arcarda.

What a pleasant surprise, after a show, 8 of us went for dinner..We all had the Italian feast, Sausage and Peppers, Ravoli, Salad and Desert.. what a bargin.. The sauce ( not gravy) was excellent.. Service was friendly and mostly attentive but the food stole the show.. would go back over and over again.

Went here to celebrate a birthday, and to see the live musical act. The ambience is so fun, the cocktails are amazing, and the service was a touch slow, but exemplary for how busy it was that night. I definitely want to come back!

Fun atmosphere with really good food and service. The music both overhead and live is enjoyable. I loved watching the silent movies while sipping my cocktail and waiting on lunch. I like when we had plenty of time to relax before a concert but also on another occasion we were short on time before a concert and the wait staff made sure we were served timely so we weren’t late. It’s definitely worth the trip, a good 45-50 for me from Chicago but will definitely visit again. The imaginative cocktails are really fun and yummy!
