Fulton Market Kitchen was absolutely amazing. My boss and I went in on a Monday night and our server was so great to us and made amazing recommendations. Each bite was absolutely phenomenal. I wanted to get the steak, but since we arrived late, they were all sold out, so I ended up getting the milanese, which was so delicious, but the cut was the size of my head! So I could only eat half, but it made great leftovers. My boss got the walleye and she was in love with it. We split the prusciutto and gruyere toast, which was out of this world. For dessert, we enjoyed the milk and honey. It was so light and like a dessert I've never experience. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for something fun, new, and trendy!!

We enjoyed FMK. We loved the art concept and couldn’t wait to go. Great cool spot to take it all in and be interested throughout your meal. Service was ok but a little less attentive than we prefer. Food was really good. We selected many shareable plates and all were delicious.

Portion sizes are very small for the price. Our waiter told us they are “European size.” Their happy hour goes until 7 p.m., which I appreciated. Atmosphere was nice, but I would not return. The food was just okay. If you have any food allergies, you’re out of luck. Not many options.

Food is bland and lacks creativity. Once you factor in the price for “small plates” it’ll be an expensive bill with meh food. Service was disastorous. As soon as they put down a plate, someone comes by and asks to take it away. They filled our water so many times, I couldn’t get a word in edgewise without someone leaning in between me and my friend to put another drop of water in there. Some places, the service is MIA. Here, the service doesn’t give you a chance to eat, talk or think for that natter. Both are not ideal.

Service haphazard at best. Foi Gras app looked cool very dry. I asked that the Walleye served without broth, informed " we don't make substitutions"...stupid.
Dessert a trainwreck ( out of Sundae @ 7pm Friday) only 2 choices and they both were terrible.
Last chance...maybe should convert to art gallery and forget food.

The West Loop is a tourist trap of over-concepted restaurants that fail to deliver on their promise. Not so Fullerton Market Kitchen which delivers substantial portions of refined standards.

The service was impeccable. The wines by the glass were reasonable and well-selected. I would recommend to anyone.

We drove up from Carmel, Indiana to Chicago for 3 birthdays. We first visited the Art Institute. We had called for reservations the week before to get dinner reservations for their first sitting so we could drive back to middle Indiana before it was too late. They were very accommodating. Fulton Market Kitchen was very cool and chic. The water was great and his table assistant was very attentive. The food was fabulous. The drink were wonderful also. The bartender even made a drink for me that was non-alcoholic. We ate the Sourdough Ciabatta , Crudites, and Brussels & Burrata for starters. The servings were not huge so that was perfect for us to try several things. For dinner we ate Pan Seared Walleye, Oven Roasted Chicken, Braised Short Ribs, and Crispy Red Potatoes. For dessert we had the S"mores. EVERYTHING was delicious and presented and plated so well. We will make sure to make reservations again when we are coming to Chicago. It was a wonderful evening.

Awful service, 30+ minutes between drink orders and serving, half the main course delivered without the sides, forcing some items to be cold when it came time to eat them. Been here 3 other times and this latest experience will keep me away for awhile. Very disappointed in what used to be a favorite! On top of that 20% tip was added to bill, we had staff remove as we didn’t think it was appropriate given the service we had. Expensive dinner for how bad the service really was, impacted the night!

Loved the ambiance & our waitress was bomb. The food is more like small plates/tapas & was all so good. Maybe not the best before a night out though because we probably needed more food on our stomachs. The vibe was super artsy and even had an artist painting in the restaurant - SO COOL. Will definitely be back.

Being a showcase for artists, FMK had an incredibly eclectic vibe. We sat in the main room and I wish that I was facing into the middle so that I could take in the fantastic decor. It was a bit louder than I had expected because the main room doesn't have any forms of sound deadening/insulation. The food was great, I wish that I could have sampled a greater variety of items but my date played it safe. I'd certainly go back again.

Great food, great decor. However, kinda loud and hard to converse with your company. The seats were a bit uncomfortable too. The table was old and charming part of the decor, but it was uneven and I almost spilled my drink several times. All things considered, it was a great dining experience and I would go back again. Perhaps the management could hang some sound absorbing art on the wall ??

While there are many great restaurants in this town, this is one of the coolest places in Chicago. Great ambience, service, mixologists, and always a fun sensory experience. The bar, music. the art, the vibe and of course the creative cuisine never seems to disappoint. Did valentine’s day there (2nd year in a row) and very happy with that decision. Highly recommend.

We had a group of 10 that turned into 12 and since it wasn't too busy they were able to accomodate and move us to a larger room which was very nice. Service was good, a couple mix ups here and there to be expected with a large group. We were there on the last day of restaurant week and everything was delicious. Drink prices were a little over the top even for a downtown spot. Will definitely go back and try the regular menu in a really cool, artwork filled, high ceiling, and classy industrial atmosphere.
