Loved the place and the ambiance!! Recommended to anyone that wants to brunch!
Food arrived at an expected wait, but service felt too relaxed and not attentive enough for the number of patrons in the restaurant at the time. We were nearly late for a show after brunch because I had to ask the hostess twice to find out waiter so we could pay the bill. The food was great and the portions were much bigger than expected. Neither of us could finish our plates. The drinks were awesome and strong. 4 of 5 Stars because not being able to leave because the waiter wasn't around to pay was very frustrating.
The food was delicious. Our waiter was really nice but may have been overwhelmed. We had to keep getting his attention for things we needed. We will be returning to try out other menu items.
Stopped by for a late lunch - we had to ask for a waiter to come serve us after waiting for awhile. It was the being of happy hour so it was very noisy - we decided to just have a few cocktails and pu-pu’s …we stop at Hub 51 each time we’re in Chicago and it never fails us - I think service was slow due to what we are all going through these days with getting good help! Next time will be a charm as there always is that next trip to CHI-town.
Great food, always solid and dependable. Service is top notch even in these tough times with staff shortages.
Serve was horrible. I waited 15 mins for a drink. And then when I asked him for a carafe for the bottomless mimosas to refill my glass, he came back 45 mins later with a drink for one of the other people I was with and didn't bother realizing he forgot mine and my other friends drink order.
We went for the bottomless brunch on a Friday with a large group - service was great and the staff were very accommodating to our large party. Mimosas were served until 3 pm. We also had bellinis and everything tasted great. It is one of the more pricey options for bottomless brunch in chicago with $28 for drinks + purchase of entree. Chose here because it was one of the only locations that does bottomless on fridays. Would return to try lunch or dinner because it was a nice restaurant and very nice atmosphere however would likely choose somewhere else for brunch because of the price!
Amazing food! I had not been here since the added the Asian food and it was amazing!!
Unfortunately the service was a bit on the slower side.
Ben Pao menu is great!!!
We enjoyed this restaurant a lot! We started with the famous nachos and they were great. It is a very large portion so its great for a group of people. The steak in the steak tacos was delicious. We would definitely come back again!
Went there for a birthday lunch. Overall was good, though my silverware was initially dirty, the server was happy to replace it when I brought it to his attention. Additionally, we got a complementary carrot cake slice when we mentioned it was my birthday which was really nice.
Awesome place to eat with great staff!! Food was amazing!!
Food was good but when I ordered a beverage the machine was down. Therefore I ordered an alcohol drink but it was available either.
Very disappointing Saturday night experience. Weren't greeted by a server after ten minutes so had to ask the host. Two of the items we ordered they were out of (server should have let us know upfront before we spent time choosing what we wanted). Tuna poke arrived without rice crisps and we were told they were out of those too.
Manager didn't seem to care either.
Won't dine here again and don't recommend.
Best mimosas in town!!
Good salads and appetizers. Fish and steaks are way too salty.
Service and atmosphere are great.
Hub51 never disappoints!
The ambiance was quite nice. The food was good, but not excellent.
The service was excellent and the food was beyond expectations. The Wagyu Burger was phenomenal. We will be back
Food off both menus was amazing
Our server Jeremy was very attentive and lively. Very much enjoyed his service as well as the food.
Everyone blames Covid, but in reality, restaurants in general, have less service and the food quality has diminished.
In addition, pricing has gone up.
Restaurants need to get their act together if they want to survive.
In the city for the air show. Needed a place for brunch and hub 51 did not disappoint!
Excellent! Always a wonderful experience and the food is outstanding!!
Brunch is very good here. Love the skinny lemony pancakes, and Brussel sprout salad and cornbread
All brunch things, miss three green bites and very thin smashed burger. Also loved the grilled meatloaf.
Great food and service.
I use to work at Ben Pao so it was so nice to experience the food again. Delicious! Our favorites are the seven flavor chicken, egg rolls, peanut noodles and the fried rice. Definitely will be back!
Great ambiance for Sunday Brunch. Food was O.K. but service was absolutely superb!
Great food. Great service. Definitely coming back.
Food was awesome. Service sucked. Tipped anyway but bad first experience nonetheless. Waited 20 minutes before waiter even approached us. Very light evening….many open tables. Waite another 15 minutes for a side of sour cream that was requested when we ordered originally. Tacos were cold by the time it got to us. Very nice waiter. Guessing last night we just caught a bad break.
The service and ambiance are wonderful. My wife and I love HUB 51, as we have been coming here throughout our five year relationship.
We were disappointed to find that they changed their menu, however. We both have dietary specifications that need to be accommodated - and in our experience prior to COVID, we were able to find that accommodation no problem. This time, however, there were no appetizers and few entrees we could eat. I have egg and dairy intolerances, while she is allergic to gluten and egg.
While we appreciated the forward nature of our server who told us - thus helping us avoid sickness - we were still disappointed that the chips are no longer gluten free. The fryer makes everything, so there’s a great chance of cross-contamination.
We will be back if they make it more amenable to those whose rating requires specifications.
Delicious food and drinks! Our server, Dylan, was wonderful and offered great suggestions. We will definitely return if we get back to Chicago!
Love the food. Simple yet delicious! Our server, Sadie, was a joy. Attentive and friendly. We’ll be back!
