Restaurant Week: seared scallops with roasted corn and squash, Bolognese and lava cake delicious. Tuesday night super quiet and the drinks were definitely worth it!!
Food was really poor
Wish it was better as live in the neighborhood
Cozy little place, good food and very attentive staff.
They accepted the reservation but informed me upon arrival that the kitchen was closed. The whole point in using the app was to find food nearby when I arrived late on a flight to ORD.
The Seafood Risotto was divine! The shrimp and scallops were perfectly cooked and the the flavor was excellent. The Ceasar salad was a pleasant surprise. The dressing was not cream based but very light and flavorful. I truly enjoyed this meal.
Excellent food fired pizza in an old world setting
Our server, Solomon, was excellent. He served my husband and I in the bar and then moved us over to the restaurant for our dinner with friends. he did a great job.
The service was excellent, but the food was only 'OK'. I'd never been to Chicago before, I had higher expectations of the pizza. And they don't have a pepper grinder - what's with that? Just regular old ground pepper in a shaker on the table.
We enjoyed our dinner with long time friends. Attentive service and good food.
We shared the appetizers and deserts.
Not a good experience. Ordered a Caesar salad and it was served with no dressing and pickled anchovies.
Will not be back.
We visit Chicago once a year and go out of our way to eat here. This intimate restaurant is located at the Whitehall Hotel but you can toss out any preconceived notions about this being ordinary hotel food. It's reasonable prices and interesting menu present a far better experience. Choose anything on the menu. You can't go wrong. Don't skip dessert either.
This is a strange restaurant in a hotel and it was empty even during restaurant week. Our waitress got every course wrong and argued with us on what we ordered from the restaurant week menu. A 20% tip was included for a party of 5 and the service was terrible.
Thos waa one of those rare scenarios where the service was top notch and the food was even better, but the relative anonymity of the restaurant and chef provided a more intimate dining experience than we could have hoped for in one of the more popular areas in Chicago. I dont think it will remain this way for long.
Food was awful. We ordered the arancini, meat & cheese tray, pizza and shrimp pasta. I sampled it all and chose to drink a coke instead. Wish I would have read the reviews before eating here.
