The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
Absolutely adored the waitstaff. Great recommendations for the amount of food and specific plates to try! Will definitely be returning to this lovely oasis in River North.
Always the go to favorite place!
We went to Ema as a group. When we walked up and saw that it was attached to the Hyatt Place we were worrried that it may not be a great place. It turned out to be wonderful. Excellent food and excellent service. The portions were a bit small for the price and many required at least 2 orders. I will definately go back next time I’m in Chicago.
Great food and service, will be back. Highly recommend.
Excellent meal!! Great service!!
Great spot in the river north area. The food was really good and a nice switch up from the steak houses that dominate the area. Highly recommend.
Remember what you order for the table, we had to remind our server we were missing items.
Great place for a weekend brunch with my husband. Everything was fresh and tasty. We loved the charred eggplant and fried chicken sandwich. The flavors were good and textures complementary. The basmati and beluga lentil salad was good too, and the bread pudding French toast interesting. The whipped cream with the French toast was super light and tasty. We left very full and satisfied.
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
I love Ema. Whenever I am in Chicago I try to go there. Food is exceptional and service is excellent.
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
