Bang-Bang Crispy Cauliflower
tempura battered, spicy mayo, togarashi
Brussels Sprouts Salad
medjool dates, almonds, manchego cheese, mustard vinaigrette
scrambled eggs, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo, cheddar & oaxaca cheeses
Not only has the price of the fish tacos gone up substantially, but they took away the guacamole that came with it and they replaced the black beans with cheaper Mexican rice. They think regular customers don’t notice.
And they still have the covid surcharge on the bill.
My only complaint was that there were fruit flies that hovered around one of the meals orders (a salad) and they would not leave the meal alone. When asked the server about it, she apologized, recognized the situation and handled it with class and elegance as well as comped the meal. Otherwise, a great meal, value and enjoyed the company.
Good was just not close to what it used to be. Manager did try to right it which we appreciated. Pleasant staff.
Jeremy was a fabulous server. Attentive and sweet!
The food was delicious as it always is. We started with egg rolls and the bang bang cauliflower for the table and both were yummy! The bang bang cauliflower is so delicious and flavorful! Everyone enjoyed a different salad with protein for dinner.
The food and the service was GREAT!! Nick really rock !
Food and drinks were wonderful. And our server was great.
Great experience- our server Lee N was the best. Food was terrific. Highly recommended.
Birthday - slow getting drinks but food was good and server was nice
Great food and drinks! A little pricey but that’s to be expected in Chicago. Good ambiance and very nice staff!
Great ambiance and food was delicious
🙌🏻 everything was great
Good food, service ok
Went with my family and the place was fairly empty. Food quality was very poor and the server was very good. He tried to make it a good experience. We are very loyal Lettuce followers. We I’ll not be going back.
My daughter and I visited Chicago for the first time and when we visit places we like to sit and rate the food and restaurant, we are foodies. I can say that we gave this place a 9.5 out of 10. We tried several dishes. The bang bang cauliflower was amazing. Very addicting and a large portion. We also tried the spicy tuna crispy rice. We took off half point for this dish. Crispy rice bed was good but the tuna could have had more flavor. We tried the steak tacos and the steak was soft and cooked exactly how we asked, the rice that comes with this dish just isn’t it lol; This was another reason for the point deduction . The potstickers were great wish the sauce was sweeter. The chicken sandwich was amazing. The star of the show was the waygu burger. IT WAS HANDS DOWN GREAT!! no need for ketchup or any other random stuff you might want to put on it. It was cooked perfectly. It was seasoned perfectly. The presentation was of it with the bread was on point. This one does not disappoint and when I am in Chicago I will return.
We went there for brunch. I ordered a 3 egg brunch with hash browns and white toast. The chicken sausage was delicious and the eggs were average at best. The toast I received was wheat, not white. The hash browns had the consistency of mashed potatoes. It was really busy but the service was great anyway. Needless to say, I probably won't be eating there again anytime soon.
Def would recommend this place. Seating was super quick and food was delicious.
I was so disappointed in the food. I use to go to Ben Pao and was excited to try their new menu. Most food was deep fat fried. One of our guests left the whole steak on her plate. Burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. Spinach dip was good. Can't believe this is a Lettuce Entertain U restaurant. Server was incredible though. She needs to go work with a better cook.
Food was delicious, service was excellent.
Great lunch spot in downtown. From the service to the food, everything was good. I liked the menu because they have a little bit of everything, so everyone can find something they like.
Inedible. Panda Express seems like Michelin star worthy compared to the meal I was served (I’m guessing because I don’t normally eat food known to be junk). But, it was beyond awful-the texture, & the taste had very little to do with the description of what I ordered. Not to ordered ever again. Yuck!
Food came out piping hot and delicious as well as the service was first rate!
The experience was amazing! First time here and will definitely be back many more times. Our server Jeremy was spectacular!!! Looking forward to many more unparalleled experiences.
Very slow, good food
Great peanut noodles, outstanding service!
I really like this place and food!
Brunch. Food was good and plenty of it!
Good service and excellent food
Food is outstanding. Issue with sitting in bar at high top when reservations made several weeks ago
More than half the menu is gone. Drinks and food. Makes it pretty boring

I came here with my friend and the food and ambiance was great! Loved everything, will definitely be coming back and may even bring a bigger group!
Good food, drinks and vibes. Our server was nice and patient, didn’t rush us. Enjoyed!
Delicious. I brought friends there for dinner. Everything was wonderful.
Great place for a work lunch meeting! Food and service are always great and it is never too noisy!
Ate lunch with friends....three of us had salads and one nacho's. All enjoyed their food and service. Amble amounts of food and nice presentation of meals.
The food was very good for its price point. I was genuinely surprised that they had American and Asian food, both of which our party had no complaints with. I would definitely go again.
If you are someone who is trying to watch their carbs or calories they had a lot of different options for you themselves for you to not feel Like you were eating something you shouldn't. Their Ceasar salad....chefs kiss!
Such a fun night. Great food, sushi, drinks, apps! Excellent service.
Great brunch spot - Grace was amazing!
