The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
Everything was great. We selected several plates to share family style - fresh ingredients very well prepared and presented - we had a great experience!
The food was amazing and the service was perfect. There happened to be a rehearsal dinner going on in the restaurant which probably made it a little louder than normal, but our group of 8 people had a blast
Friend’s bday dinner
Overall nice experience. Food was good, octopus portion very small. Interesting wine selections. Would go back to explore more menu options.
Love this restaurant. I'm just always SO thrown off by the restrooms though. They're in the attached hotel, feel a mile away and definitely are not on par with the decorating or ambiance at Ema. It's a decidedly unpleasant journey by comparison to the restaurant.
We had a big group (8), and Ema was great. Everybody loved it!
Loved every dish!!! Always great service .will be back again !
Very good place, seemed maybe a little short staffed on the day, waitress was super nice and helpful, we just ended up going long stretches without seeing her. Food is absolutely delicious, but as others have noted portions are a little on the small side. Ambience is fantastic.
We had an AMAZING time at Ema! Loved the food and our waitress was good as well!
Flavor explosions! Amazing!
My first time at Ema for brunch. There are some really nice additions to the menu (both sweet and savory) for brunch. Highlight for us was the whipped feta with sun-dried tomatoes -- we ordered it as a starter and again after our meal as a "dessert" it was so yummy. Lovely helpful staff. Definitely will return.
Incredible service and great food!
Excellent food! I recommend any of the veggie dishes. I find the meat can be overlooked but the veggies are the best I have ever had!
All of the food was delicious and pretty reasonably priced.
We had a wonderful time. Looking forward to going again.
Took my girlfriend to lunch for her Birthday. We had a chopped salad with dates and chicken also egg white frittata. Both were delicious and plenty of food for us. Ema also sent over a birthday tart. Service was knowledgeable and attempted. Will be back.
Great server Zach, great evening !
Ēma was incredible. The food was to die for, but the plates were small for the price. For a special occasion or extra special date night, I’d go back 100%! The risotto and salmon kebabs were delicious on so many levels, but do NOT forget to get the hummus or spicy hummus. Some of the best I’ve had in my life. The warm pita they bring to the table constantly, pairs well with everything you order. Love the atmosphere as well - the space offers clean white/neutral colors with the perfect amount of greenery spread and wicker touches. Can not wait to return.
Our sever was OUTSTANDING. Good is always excellent.
The spreads are totally worth it. Try all of them.
Amazing service and very thoughtful dishes. Order extra vegetable crudite with your hummus. It is so fresh.
Brussels are a top notch item
Overall it was just ok. Food was good, but a little expensive for what it was. Liked that there were lots of veggie options, service was great.
I like dining here because the food is good and I like the ambiance and location. That said, the service is perplexing. This was my 5th time in here in the last year and the service was maybe the best I had experienced but it was because my expectations are now so low. Service is usually inattentive and scattered. Very surprising for a LEYE restaurant and a totally different from Beatrix right next door.
They have delicious food and excellent service. Highly recommended!
The staff is all excellent and our server Jessie was superb and spent extra time getting to know us and our family until it got very busy. But definitely not someone who hides in the back
Ema is a great spot for small intimate dinners of sharing delicious food
overall food presentation was beautiful and flavor was also very good. The hummus appetizer was very creamy and balanced.tuna tartare was perfect. However, the broth that the mussels came in was very salty.
Outstanding food and service - we all loved it!
Very poor service, the server dropped off the menus and were never seen again for 20 minutes until I asked another server to get our server. He took our order and was not seen again until we finished our dinner. Will not recommend and will not return.
The menu was creative with a combination of flavors from the Mediterranean. The labeleh spread, with honey and walnuts, could be a stand alone desert. The toothpick lamb was coming led in a sublime mix of spices - tastiest lamb I’ve ever had. Did not disappoint.
