We selected this place from a Yelp article on oyster happy hours and although we missed the oyster happy hour, both the staff and the food were excellent. The bar staff was courteous, helpful and friendly, and each of their recommendations was delicious. We can't wait to return to try more items on the menu.

We enjoyed excellent muscles and the mains. The noise level was "energetic" but we could hear ourselves. The wait staff were very attentive, and moved us when the sun blinded us (afternoon sun coming in from a high window) The food was beautifully presented, and well cooked. We recommend the restaurant for pre-play dinner, and for casual dining.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. We sat down at 6:50 at a table that was very awkwardly placed behind the host stand. No one came to our table to greet us by 7:00 pm, so my husband asked the hostess if we had a server. A server comes and we order two dirty martinis with blue cheese olives and the pretzel monkey bread. By 7:20, we could see our drinks sitting on the bar and we had not been served. I went to the hostess and explained the situation. She then came to the table with our drinks (which did not have blue cheese martinis and were now watered down) and a manager comes by and asks “how are we doing?” As we explain that we now waited 40 minutes for drinks and appetizers, she apologies and said she would comp our drinks and appetizer. The pretzel bread then came out burnt. The manager was kind, and then brought us out an appetizer with a variety of spreads and tartare all of which was sub par. Our server finally comes back to the table at 7:30, and says “sorry I didn’t know we were out of blue cheese olives.”

We decided to leave, as we could not take the service and mediocre food. We know they are new, but for the price point and location we expected better service. I will never return, but I would wait if I were you to give them time to work out the kinks in their service.

A little hectic when we first arrived - there were no menus available, so we had to wait to be seated. While we waited, we ordered a nice cocktail at the bar (pretty standard ~$15). Once we were outside, it took our waiter a little while to get to us, and then was a bit aggressive in ensuring we had paid for our drinks at the bar. He asked if we were eating....duh? Then he went back in, got us place setting (which there were already 4 at the table, so it was a bit confusing). We finally got to order and asked for his opinion - he was not really having that. I get that waiters may hate this question, but no need to seem annoyed. Once the food came out everything was delicious (we ordered mussels and frites, of course, and also the oysters and Sauerkraut Horseradish Pierogi all priced reasonably to slightly expensive), but good thing we didn't need too much else - because the waiter maybe came to check on us once; just enough to get another drink ordered. Luckily the nice bartender, hostess, and server/ guy who came to clear our plates between apps and entre were all very pleasant. Maybe the waiter was just having a bad day - so I don't hold it against the restaurant, and would certainly go back!

I had the mussels. Excellent sauce and the bread to dip was excellent! The staff was very nice and helpful with suggestions. We tried the pretzel with mustard and that was very good as well. My wife had the sea bass wrapped in prosciutto. That was very good as well. They had plenty of wine to choose and a few good beers to choose from.

The food was excellent, and I can't say enough about the lobster bisque. But it took requests to two different hostesses to get the server to our table. Once we got his attention, it was fine, but we were barely on time at the theatre with this delay.

We had a great dinner. Food was fresh and thoughtfully prepared. Unpleasant diners seated beside us rattled our server. He handled them very professionally but they clearly exhausted the emotional capital of the staff and mgmt. Without this issue our dinner was flawless.

The menu could be called Belgian Fusion cuisine. There are staples such as flavorful, meaty mussels and frites, but then an octopus bolognese with preserved egg yolk (yes spaghetti bolognese is very Belgian.) Everything was interesting and tasty. Although you’d expect this to be a beer place, the wines by the glass were actually more interesting, including a Furmint from Hungary.

A group of four of us came here on a whim because it was walking distance from our hotel and WOW, were we blown away. Our server was amazing, and the food was absolutely delicious--and we had appetizers, entrees AND dessert! We loved the ambiance of the place as well as the terrific food, and I will definitely be recommending Fisk & Co. to others as well as returning there myself the next time I travel to Chicago. What a find!

Wonderful menu in pleasant setting. High ceilings, however, make for quite a bit of crowd noise, so try to get a location along the wall or windows. Not a huge menu, but a super variety nonetheless. Having just been in Brussels, seeing fine Belgium fare in the heart of Chicago was cool. Excellent waitress; very attentive staff.

Really enjoyed this new spot in the Loop. It is perfect for a pre-theater dinner. I loved the classic mussels and the frites. What I liked was that there were several mussel choices and six aioli/ketchup choices for the frites. The ice cream for dessert was also great. Don't miss it.

This new Chicago restaurant is a hit! I went with a friend from the East Coast, who is incredibly picky about his seafood meals, and we were both very impressed with the quality of the muscles. We also ordered some oysters, which were fresh & delicious. The food was incredible, as was the service. I will definitely be going back again!
