The location, views and decor were great! We waited 90 minutes for our food to arrive. The food, once it arrived, was quite tasty. A manager came by as we were eating to apologize for the delay citing that there were several large parties being served. In fact, the restaurant had been crowded when we arrived, but was more than half empty about 30 minutes after we arrived. And while there was a large party seated near us (12-14 people), they were there before we arrived. The number of guests during the Sunday brunch that were there didn't seem the warrant the significant food delay or the minimal attention we received from the wait staff.
The food is tasty and the ambience was great for a relaxing lunch rooftop taking in the Chicago skyline! If you are tight on time then skip this spot because the restaurant is part of a sports club and the check in process is not customer friendly and they charge you $35 membership fee to go eat and give it back. It's a bit of a pain and they need to fix that process to drive more patronage. Nonetheless, the food was good and its clearly off the normal path for quick dining.
Lovely rooftop setting with panoramic view of Downtown. Wine list and service excellent.
Unfortunately, the food is mediocre at best?!
My whitefish was overcooked and smelled fishy. Sent it back. My husbands Salmon was thin and overcooked in his Harvest Bowl. Truffle fries were greasy and not crisp. I am a Club member and will not return to dine here. Many other members agree that the food is not as good as in the past. Please address this unfortunate situation!
The salmon is exceptional, both in the entree, as well as the Harvest Bowl
We love dropping our 3 kids off for movies on the rooftop, while we go to Harvest with friends. Robin, the manager is fantastic. Great views of Chicago skyline from a rooftop. Few people know about this great spot!
Just okay food, poor service. Outdoor patio is good.
If you aren't reserving this as a place to eat in conjunction with your gym visit, this probably isn't the place to go. In fairness, I did not do my research on this so I didn't realize what we were getting into. The name seems self-explanatory in hindsight, but as someone who isn't from the area, I had somehow assumed that this was just a restaurant that was next to the gym, not in it. We were a bit surprised to find that we had to sign in at the front desk of the gym to get in and then walk to an old/questionably functional elevator to get up to the 4th floor where the pool area is. The restaurant is located there. If I were a member at this gym, I'd probably think this was a nice convenience with a nicer menu than the average gym offers. Unfortunately, as someone just looking to eat lunch and chat with friends, it was disappointing. The pool next to the restaurant has all the loud, normal pool noises including kids yelling and splashing around. It definitely smells of chlorine and it's humid by nature. In the summer this location has a great view of the city from the outdoor patio but this was not where I'd want to eat indoors, unless, again, I was doing it as part of your gym-day experience.
Fantastic food for club/gym food. Creative selections and nice drink and wine options. On the negative they were out of two menu items we requested.
