Our waiter was amazing! So attentive and gave really good suggestions. The patio wasn’t too crowded even when full and it was a great place to bring my out of state friend. I will be back!!

Maybe because it was a Monday, but everything seemed to be a bit off — mainly, the quality of the food and a seemingly inexperienced server.

Food was great, ambiance was great. Prices weren’t bad we spent about $135 total with 3 appetizers, 3 entrees , 1 drink and 1 bottomless. The server wasn’t great tho the other servers were nicer who came by to help but ours gave a bad attitude vibe

Enjoyable Saturday afternoon late lunch/early dinner before the White Sox game. Service was prompt and pleasant. Food tasty and plentiful. Only knock was waiter didn’t indicate how high the upcharge was for the side dish swap ($7). We could have just ordered the extra side and kept the one included for the same total price.

This was our first time at Hub 51. Most of the items we ordered were very good and flavorful, however the fish tacos were bland and small. The burger, fried rice, peanut noodles, fried rice and pot stickers were very good. After not wanting a table next to the front door the hostess put us right next to the kitchen while a table 2 over from us stayed empty most of the evening. Felt like she gave us the bad table on purpose. The waiter was great. Might go back, might not. There are lots of good places in Chicago.

Service was slow. Food was mediocre. Maybe Covid recovery is impacting them because this is very different compared to pre-Covid. Fingers crossed they return to pre Covid days

Had a chopped salad with grilled shrimp and the salad was pretty good. Served on a warm plate and the shrimp were skimpy, but overall good flavor. The fish tacos were outstanding!

Hub51 was fantastic! I had the Chicken Tinga tacos and my daughter had the Sesame Chicken, and they were both amazing! The portion sizes were appropriate for the price and our server was very attentive. The restaurant has a great vibe and staff were very welcoming. I would definitely recommend Hub 51 and Ben Pao!!

We had a group of 4. We had people trying the chicken, rice, and noodles. It was all great food, although a little over priced. The waitress was kind and a bit slow but understandable. I would go back.

No service provided to us after we were seated for 10+ minutes. Absolutely no one said hello, asked if we wanted drinks, appetizers or to say they were busy (there were only 5 groups in the area where we were seated and 3 wait staff folks); If I could rate the service as a negative, I would!

BTW, as we were leaving, the hosts who were stationed 15 feet from where we had been seated, offered to get our waiter if we wanted to stay. They showed no interest as we waited the 10+ minutes at the table. Total failure at every level at this restaurant.
