    Overall it wasn’t a great experience. The noice level is extremely high - untypical for this type of restaurant. We had a table for four and we had to wait all to arrive to be seated. It’s ridiculous in my opinion as anyway they have a no show fee and can always charge. However, our friends were late 2-3 minutes after the grace period and they reseted our table and gave us only a limited time. The host was very rude so I don’t think place like that where the challenge is to make a reservation should allow that. The food was fine bit far from good or delicious. Nothing special in general and it didn’t meet our expectations. We have shared 6-7 different dishes and only the pork shank was ok. The lamb ribs were very dry and not tasty at all. And the deserts were… actually no words for the deserts - worst than ever. Not served appropriately and not tasty at all. Overall - very expensive and overrated restaurant, i don’t think I will go again nor recommend it.

    I dined with my 13yo daughter to celebrate her birthday. Overall, everything was great. Food was delicious, of course, it’s a beautiful space, and the service was fast and attentive. It felt a little rushed at times, and I was a bit disappointed by the lack of creativity around non-alcohol drinks. I loved the one zero-proof cocktail but when I asked my server about other options she seemed confused. Please consider a non-alcoholic cocktail menu, adding a few more options, or training the servers how to ask the bartender for varieties. Alcohol-free is an up and coming lifestyle, and the restaurant will benefit from being a bit more proactive and versed in the options.

    Not much has changed about this place in 4 years, except the feeling of boredom has crept in where innovation once dwelled. The only difference was that I paid a ridiculous amount for a valet service that required me to cross the street multiple times since the booth was placed in front of the now permanently closed Little Goat. What the what, GATG? When I asked why the valet booth was across the street from the place I had paid $$$ to enjoy, I was told it was a contracted company (AKA "not our fault"). I'd head to Gilt Bar instead if I were you. Their valet booth is conveniently placed for patrons and staff doesn't pass the buck if you share a concern.

    The food was incredible! We had the Chickpea Fritters, Goat Empanadas, Green Beans, and the Pork Shank. All of the dishes were delicious, but the Pork Shank was really a standout. We also tried the Hot Chocolate Mousse for dessert at the recommendation of our server and it was phenomenal!! The servers were all very attentive and welcoming too! We will definitely be back!

    First time dining here myself and all the reviews I read were spot on. We were celebrating our birthdays together and made for an amazing evening. The pork shank was fall off the bone delicious, outstanding service, and the fact they were able to make us one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever had topped off with a ten year port was literally icing on the cake for the evening. Thank you to everyone for making it a memorable evening

    Food was amazing!! Best food I’ve ate in Chicago in a while for a very reasonable price. The restaurant was quite noisy and seating was way too close for comfort. The server couldn’t even fit between our table and the table next us. She stood behind my husband and he had to do a full 180 degree turn in his chair to order.

    We tried almost every small plate and everything was so delicious - hamachi poke, bay scallops, oysters, beets, green beans, chick pea fritters. I had several custom zero proof drinks, one spicy and the other like a limoncello at the end of the meal were perfect with the dishes.

    Visiting Chicago and always wanted to try this place. Huge Top Chef fan. This place did not disappoint. The service was impeccable. The food was even better. We ordered the goat empanadas, green beans, oysters, and chile crisp chicken. Each dish was so tasty. The You Had Me at Aloe drink was perfection. Will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

    So glad I finally made it to this place! A fun & bustling atmosphere. (One note for anyone with mobility challenges: the only restrooms we saw were down a flight of stairs, so if that's a concern, I'd call in advance and see if there's an accessible restroom on the main floor.) Service was extremely attentive, hitting that sweet spot of both friendly & professional. (If you dislike having your water glass sit empty, this place is Nirvana! I've never come out of a restaurant so well-hydrated.) My family of 4 loved everything we got: naan appetizer, shrimp & greens salad, goat empananda, chili chicken, skirt steak, sticky toffee pumpkin spice latte cake. We were eating really early or we might have needed more food, but we had a show to get to and this amount was just right. Our total bill was only about $160 before tip (including one beer and one mocktail), which feels like a steal by 2023 standards. But if we'd gone later/hungrier and ordered the recommended 2 dishes per person, it would have been a little pricey. Still, for food this creative & delicious, I'll definitely go back!
