    The salmon is wonderful. We also shared the chicken entree which was just so-so. We had chips & dip which were very good and baratta which was OK. The menu is small and they don’t offer specials. Don’t offer an NA beer. But, that salmon dish is awesome!

    Our food wasn't as phenomenal as it was on previous visits (less brisket in the brisket hash - meat prices?), and our server a little absent-minded and perhaps green - all understandable given the current issues restaurants face. I love Gadabout, so will definitely return nonetheless.

    A true hidden gem in the Andersonville neighborhood in Chicago. The owners of the restaurant take inspiration from countries all over the world and apply them to their food. Definitely coming back to try their other courses.

    We went there to eat and we got eaten - venous fly trap of a restaurant. Food was unreasonably tiny portions and overpriced. Spent 170$ and left hungry.

    My partner and I had a lovely date night at Gadabout. The lighting and ambiance were just right, and the service was attentive but not overly so. We had a great bottle of wine that was reasonably priced. The meal was delicious - I especially enjoyed the chips and dip with the bourbon barrel smoked trout roe. This restaurant brings big, inspired flavors to the table. My one suggestion to the restaurant is to have a side of bread/pita/naan on the table or available for purchase for your diners. The big flavors can be very bold and it's helpful to have a palate cleanser/something to mop up the delicious sauce! We will definitely be dining here again.

    First date night in along time and it was fantastic. Started with well made drinks, dined on amazingly well crafted eats and finished with a dessert to die for. Our server, Josh, was great with his suggestions and the service was attentive without the pushy weirdness. Loved it from drinks to bill.

    I really enjoyed my time at Gadabout but I think I may have gone on an off day. The brussel sprouts with the burrata were too salty they were basically inedible.. then I think they may have forgotten the french toast we ordered as somebody came over to see if we got it yet. While the french toast was absolutely delicious, there were a few bits that burnt black. The baked eggs were amazing. I would like to try gadabout again as I really believe it was just a bad day.

    Honestly one of the best meals I've had at a restaurant in recent memory! I was very impressed by the food, and the staff clearly cares a LOT about being excellent- not just good, but excellent. Everything we ate had a very interesting combo of flavors and textures, without ever crossing the line into being absurd or gross. The ingredients seem very high quality and I was so excited by every taste. Even in the cocktails! The ambiance is very fresh and inviting, with the worldly decor, ample plants, and fun mix of seating. I cannot recommend this place enough!!

    The food is very imaginative with liberal use of unusual spices and vegetables (e.g., shishito peppers, zhoug, beech mushrooms). Service is friendly and attentive. We are always pleased with our dining experience when we go to Gadabout.
