At fourteensixteen, we strive to provide our guests with an experience that is unique and eclectic, while still approachable and fun.

The craft beer selection highlights microbreweries found in Illinois and throughout the Midwest. The artfully crafted cocktail list is fueled by exquisite spirits and handmade by artisans whose commitment to the quality of their products is unmatched. The wineries we work with are small, often family-owned, and dedicated to sustainable farming and traditional vinification methods. Like our drink menu, our food menu showcases local farms and regionally sourced products. This, mixed with our talented cooks, creates an environment where food, drink, and atmosphere make for a perfect evening out.

Please note: Our upstairs terrace is first come, first serve... no exceptions.

The pre-fixe menu was fantastic; I’ve had venison many times and have never craved it before; I crave the venison from your place! Keep up the high standards. Will be back soon 😊

Lively atmosphere and good food. Lots of variety but not the same old thing. Had the lamb nachos, the bass, the burger, the cioppino, the tasting menu and a dessert trio. The burger was good but had no toppings except carmelized onions which didn’t give much of a first impression.

Fourteen Sixteen was not quite what my wife & I expected. The service was very good but the restaurant was rather noisy. The food was good but not exceptional. This is a trendy restaurant good for socializing or a date night.

We went for brunch and while the menu is limited, the choices are all perfect. I had beignets and they tasted better than the ones at Café Du Monde in New Orleans. Much lighter and placed over caramelized walnuts. They were lightly dusted with powdered sugar as opposed to being saturated New Orleans style. My brunch friend ate every scrap on his plate and he does not often do that. We went on one of the coldest days of the year and it was worth the trip despite the frigid temperature.

Arrived after a frustrating day of wedding dress shopping and were greeted at the bar by super friendly and fun bartender named Jim(?). All went uphill from there with his recommendations on wine and appetizers. Then we went to our table for dinner which was delicious! Made the day end on a high note! Thanks! We will be back!

I think that the menu here is one of the best in town. I almost always have some kind of vegetable flatbread which is always excellent. Far superior to other flatbreads in the area. At this particular dinner, my friend ordered the roasted chicken plated on a bed of shaved brussels sprouts and she was enamored of the dish from first to last bite. I took part of my flatbread home , saving it for lunch the next day, and it was fine even being heated in the microwave. I wish 1416 would do daily lunches, but I am grateful for their presence on a street packed with Italian fare.

Wife and I did a New Year’s early night out and went to fourteensixteen after a movie.

I wish I could offer a more positive review. Overall OK, but just OK. The waiter was attentive and definitely concerned about us and we appreciated that. But he couldn’t overcome some things.

The pricey fixed menu for NYE was interesting but mixed in terms of execution. Dessert was a key lime pie and was terrific. The sea urchin selection was also good. And the duck preparation was well conceived and tasty. The Wagyu beef was disappointing ... small piece and a good 1/3 of it was solid fat. Maybe four edible bites. Lobster was fine, but also quite small given the overall price for the dinner.

My wife is a pescatarian and we asked for just one possible deviation to accommodate her ... even a simple small salad or something veggie and simple ... and while the waiter did go to the kitchen and try, evidently they would not budge ... so she omitted a course and they did not make a price accommodation for it.

Service ... as noted the waiter was a plus but they rushed the courses ... one time bringing out the next one before we finished the dish we were still working on. And it isn’t like we were pressing the limits of the seating times ... had plenty of time. Again, the waiter was mortified and apologized, but just about the time I took the final bit of the current dish the next one showed up again.

Wines were well selected and good. Ambience is good and the place did have a comfy, not too frantic feel. You could tell lots of regulars come here and we really liked the set up in the bar area and the restaurant in general.

So mixed, but not completely disappointing. My advice to the kitchen and management is don’t get out too far over your skis and be a little more detail and customer focused. We may try it again on a non-holiday date.

We went to 1416 for a Birthday celebration the week after Christmas. We went fairly early ( 5:45) and were sat in the up stairs deck area, which had great ambiance with the torch heaters and snowflakes falling in the background. We were also the only ones sitting up there at the time, so it was a wonderful setting. ( The deck did fill up by the time we left) The food and service was great. There were three of us and we all had something different. The food is both fresh and decadent so that you don't need overflowing plates of food. It also leaves room for desert. I would recommend this place to anyone, special occasion, or just a great nite out.

Ordered tortellini. There was a tiny pile of 6 pieces in the bowl. I was hungry but this entree was more like a small appetizer. It was shockingly small. Luckily the sauce was good. My friend ordered chicken. It was a large serving, 1/2 a chicken. It was very greasy. My dinner was gone in 6 bites, she had leftovers to take home. Server was not pleasant. Overall, not a good experience.

I enjoyed my meal at 1416. My Snake River steak was excellent, our flatbread appetizer was tasty, the salad was interesting with squash in it. The red wine, a blend from Miner was excellent too, and a decent value. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back

This is probably the fourth time I've been and the food was the best I've had there yet. Black bass was cooked perfectly and ravioli and sauce was cozy and very nicely done. Scallops only came with 2 for $17, which was a problem for 4, but burrata appetizer was nice to share. Key lime pie was refreshing with coconut sorbet. We will definitely return for that bass again!

A great celebration! A snafu with one of our party being very late was handled with grace and good humor by our server Tim H., which helped me de-escalate my own stress. We ordered and got our guest to the restaurant by Uber! Great appetizer of scallops with polenta “toast” to kick it off! Sublime, with the peppers and pork and the sauce.

House salad was terrific with a great dressing. One order of the butternut squash soup, which my son said was very nicely flavored and rich. My husband enjoyed the Special of the aged steak which was cooked to perfection, well presented on a wooden board, and accompanied by fingerling potatoes. My mother in law had the Cioppino and loved it, taking some home. For my order, I went with a seasonal dish of venison with roast beets and sweet potatoes. Sublime. And the order of Black Bass was well seasoned on a bed of zucchini and leek making it a milder dish.

A few of us piled into the left lime pie....

Great selection of wines. We had a Mendocino Pinot Noir. Yum.
Overall a wonderful experience on a casual atmosphere which was lively but fun. The food is very good.
