This is a top 3 restaurant in Chicago for me. The service is always incredibly attentive and kind. The seasonal menu is fresh, and their burger is to die for. If you love dirty martinis, they have one of the best. Classic Chicago restaurant. Cozy in the winter with a delightful patio for warm weather. If you're visiting Chicago and you're staying downtown, don't hesitate to book a reservation here! Gemini is a quick Uber away and back. Love, love, love.

Delicious dishes and cocktails! Mouth watering still and our dinner was 3 nights ago :P we didn’t have anything to complain about here. Sydney provided amazing service! Our meal was so flavorful, I would cry if they take the swordfish off the menu. Our espresso martinis by Mario was prefect. And Chef Ernesto is top notch! Overall wonderful dinner with great company

Good food. However, this was a poor choice for entertaining our foreign visitors. We couldn’t hear each other, despite eating in the back booth, which is supposedly quieter.

This neighborhood bistro serves the finest results of a culinary experience. It remains extraordinarily successful due to the commitment of its Lincoln Park community. I honestly feel I am among family every time I dine here.

Super great food! Tables are just close together. My neighbor spilled her red wine all over my leg on accident, which I guess was the kicker. Aside from that, it was a delight.

best hamburger ever! my friend had the mussels and more than half were not open so she asked if they could heat them up in water again and see if they opened... they came back with a new bowl and they were perfect... we were all happy. I will be back!

Love the Sunday fried chicken special! Can easily split between two. We sat outside which was nice - side street location so not busy. Service was attentive. Wine selections could use some work, but overall decent value for the cost.

My partner, friends, and I went for two birthday celebrations, one being my own. We were greeted and sat quickly, Meg (our server) was amazing and attentive. Their drinks were well priced and very tasty. The best part though is the food. This place is a hidden gem and their menu is diverse and EVERYTHING is high flavor and quality. They’ve won us over, and we will frequently be dining. Definitely make it a point to check this place out!
