This used to be the South Water Kitchen which has since closed. Thank goodness. We visited for lunch, and were not disappointed at all. Service was amazing - warm, attentive and sincere. I ordered the fresh pressed green juice with cucumber, spinach kale and ginger - delicious. I was disappointed that they don't make the beet juice anymore. Our entrees were delicious - the cobb salad with poached salmon and the smoke salmon BLT - both well prepared, well seasoned and just right. What a great improvement from the previous restaurant at this location. We plan to return - it was a wonderful experience

Food was great and so was inside of the restaurant itself. Great options for food and drinks. But Paul our server, was absolutely amazing. We are from out town and he took great care of us even though we were too early for lunch and he gave us the best service and suggestions. Great conversation and suggestions for other places too. Really enjoyed it

Fisk and Co. is a very solid spot in the loop! You wouldn’t know it’s attached to a hotel. It’s Primary focus is seafood, but there are other good options for vegetarians and non-seafood eaters. The atmosphere is cool- great views and the space is well laid out and decorated. My favorite part about this place is the service. From the second you walk in to when you leave, you feel taken care of. The menus seem a tad overpriced, but the food is good. Don’t miss out on the Pretzel monkey bread! It had a crunchy top with sesame seeds and salt, and the inside was warm and doughy with a hint of honey. Overall, this was a very positive dining experience for the area.

Man, this place had so much potential and just totally blew it. Honestly, most of the food was pretty good. The curry mussels were delicious, my Salmon was very good and one person in my group got the Gnocchi which was good too. But my wife ordered the Cauliflower Salad and it was so overdressed it was literally inedible. I am the opposite of a picky eater and I couldn't stand more than a bite or two of it and she hardly touched it as well. Compound that with the fact that we showed up on a very slow Monday night and the service was so slow. We got stuck there way longer than we wanted just because it took so long in between being checked on. It was also very expensive. Now if it had been good quality all around, I don't mind paying for that. But don't serve me crap and then overcharge me for it.

The menu on Open Table bears no resemblance to what the restaurant was actually offering! Many different entrees among the small number of selections, no Prix-Fixe option either. But all in all this was a very good experience. My wife loved her mussels. My salmon was good, though nothing special considering the high price. Good location for a pre-theater meal.

Wonderful ambience! The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. She was able to make recommendations to us and was very engaging. Great location and walkable from our hotel. We were seated right away. There were sufficient vegetarian options for our party to choose from as well as traditional options. We’ll definitely go again.

Have eaten virtually every meal (brunch, lunch, dinner) there over the past two years, and they never disappoint. The frites are amazing and are served with many dishes or on their own. I've had all of their various mussel dishes and each was amazing. This month the saffron/tomato mussels were incredible.

Service minimally acceptable. Told of no seating in bar, as the lounge couches and tables were “ reserved”. So went elsewhere for drinks, only to return to find the same couches and tables empty. Service was friendly but wine pours seemed skimpy. Not enough bread brought to table, taking a long time to even get it. Mussels great as was salad. Dessert was terrible. Supposedly a “ crumble”, more like soup with a little granola. I dine out frequently and am generally a reasonable individual, but this restaurant is so out of line , price-wise , with only acceptable food and service.

We had fabulous service and could hear ourselves in conversation-a big plus with us these days. The mussels and oysters were awesome and the servers were so good they offered to bring us extra bread for the broth without us asking. They were spot on with their tasks without being intrusive. My lobster roll was delicious and they always find a way to make substitutions with a smile. I wanted truffle fries instead of regular and they obliged handily. My husband’s Haddock was just so-so but it could have been having an off night (the fish, not the chef). We would highly recommend Fisk & co and will be back.

We weren't very impressed with Fisk & Co. Our fish fries were crunchy on the outside but the fish itself was kind of slimy/watery on the inside. On the other hand, my Dad did enjoy his seafood tower.

I was staying at the Kimpton Monaco and decided to dine here 3 times because I thought I would receive IHG rewards (and elite points), but NO! Even though the appeared on my bill as Food Charges, which are supposed to be "Qualified Spending" for reward points, they were NOT considered qualified spending. After contacting IHG, I just received answers which didn't answer anything! The third night I was in town I had steak frites. At least, the fries were included with the steak at $29. I asked for a just bit more than rare steak and got one almost medium. In conclusion, if I had known that I wasn't going to receive any IHG points, that the service was average to below average (those at check-in were friendly and welcoming but not the wait staff), and that the food was not going to be anything better, I would have gone elsewhere. It's downtown Chicago, and there are many choices!
