Little pricey for what we got, but I'd go back for the atmosphere! It was very cozy and lively on a winter night :)

First visit to (O)Linger having been to most of all the other Chef Justin Cucci's establishments. Loved the place from the moment I walked in. Host and Hostess were super accommodating. Our server, Danielle, was also fantastic...friendly, sweet, knowledgeable and never intrusive; always there anticipating our need at the right time. Menu was so enticing and eclectic we had a hard time deciding so guess that means we have to go back! Decided on sharing the Tempura Ginger Chili Shrimp, Whole Korean Fried Chicken, Potato Masala Dosa, and Devils on Horseback. Nothing else to say but "Outstanding." I can unequivocally say I have never had a bad, or even mediocre meal at any of Cucci's establishments. Yum. Yum.

Really enjoyed our recent dinner at Linger. The only issue I have is with the portion sizes of some of the small plates. I know they are called small plates for a reason, but the chick pea plate for example had three ping-pong ball size portions on it, which seemed kind of nonsensical. Other plates were not so bad. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Motts was the best!! His self awareness and sense of urgency on our part made it a phenomenal visit.. The staff is very attentive and I can't say enough about that.. The food was KOREAN/SPANISH fusion IMO and was really good. Will definitely re-visit this spot.. I would recommend to anyone that wants try something new, yet a lil fancy, but down home all-in-one.. Linger has a great persona to it.. nuff said..

Spring rolls were very greasy and tasted like they were fried in old grease. Devils on Horseback were just missing something, the flavors didn’t really pull together. Our cocktails were good and the service was excellent!

Had a phenomenal evening with my best friend at linger. All the food was delicious. We shared the Bao Buns and Pot stickers. I also had the Pad Thai and he got the Korean Tacos. Everything was fresh and the staff was incredibly nice.

The food was really good, we have high Chicago food standards and rated it 7/10. We got an igloo on the roof and the ambiance was awesome! It was a cold night and we were plenty warm with the space heaters. Our server Chelsea was amazing and we were well cared for! The cocktails were not impressive unfortunately but wine and beer were good!

A unique and fun vibe, fit for nearly any special occasion. They do a good job with nearly all of their dishes, and are careful with gluten allergies.

I've lived here for 5+ and have never been, it was really nice. The food was very well throughout and beautifully prepared.

A friend and I probably only need 3 tapas vs 4 - but we dented our food -- No room for dessert.

Our server was extremely helpful and patient with us.

Used to really love Linger. I love the renovation and the fact they still have my favorite drink on the menu, but was disappointed with the new menu taking on the overdone "tapas" concept. It was disappointing too to see the price for items that are designed to be shared making them ultimately smaller plates. Food overall was pretty good though. The old linger interior needed a facelift so appreciated that. Service was meh overall and could have had a more upbeat server. The front of house were splendid. They do charge a recovery fee in a restaurant that packed full and extremely busy not sure how much help they need with recovery, though I understand if they didn't receive a federal PPP Loan. With the noise level, menu style, and overall experience, I probably won't be coming back.

After driving an hour to dine here, the door was locked and the restaurant was closed without any post or notice. Several other parties standing outside in the cold as well. Extremely unprofessional.

The restaurant was not even open. So many people had reservations and had to find somewhere else to eat. No one answered the phone or posted on socials why they’re closed. Just a normal Sunday when they’re supposed to be open for brunch.

We were 1st timers and dined at Linger on New Years Eve for a prix fixe menu of 4 courses, with a few choices for each one. Each and every component of all the dishes we tasted were a burst of well married flavors. Everything was cooked to perfection and I can honestly say that the team in the kitchen are Artists. From the first greeting at the door and the help with the wardrobe to the knowledgeable and attentive waiter it was a perfect evening. Thank you, Linger. We will be back!

Typically we love Linger it is our go to for a wonderful evening. On New Years they had a prefixed menu option which we opted to select. The first course was standard Linger and delish but about the size of a ritz cracker, 2nd course was also very good but we were disappointed in the entrees. Spending $270 for 2 adults and 2 children it was a rare disappointment for Linger. Service was unacceptably slow too and unique to our table for some reason. It took nearly 3 hours as we watched other tables come and go while we waited to get our meals.

We will certainly go again but will not do a prefix menu in the future.

NYE early dinner, everything terrific from check-in to hanging my coat to handoff to the professional & of Lucas our pleasant server . Hubby had the pre-fixe menu, each course had him savoring every bite —the king crab Pad Thai entree had him swooning and the torte (?) dessert left him gobsmacked. I ordered 2 small plates, delish & we ended up bringing 1/2 the Pad Thai home. Recommend, a foodies delight.

My husband and I had a lovely time at Linger! We had never been before and everyone was very welcoming. Our server was fun, happy to be at work and very knowledgeable about the menu! After our dinner, our server helped us to get two seats at the Lite Brite bar which was AWESOME! P.S. Don't leave without trying the hand pies :)

Everything was wonderful except...Linger opens at 5pm. A few of us arrived early on a freezing evening but the staff would not let us in to stand in the lobby until 5:00 on the dot. One couple had a baby.

Made reservations for Christmas Eve based on the reviews I had read and the restaurant theme, rooftop and idea seemed interesting. We were first ones there about 10 minutes early, numerous other parties came around 5 minutes to opening. Staff was very rude and for whatever reason wouldn't just seat people. Finally we were seated first and placed our orders, bartender was very nice and his drinks were well made I have nothing bad to say about him. We ordered our food and our plates were taken to some other gentleman at the end of the bar 3ven though they didn't order anything they ate them anyways. We continued to wait for our food while everyone else in the restaurant was served We finally got ours. Food was cold, quality was poor, taste was poor and overall just a bad experience. I thought the bill was overpriced for what we got especially with cold food and poor quality. We asked the bartender about the rooftop and if we could just walk up and take a look and he said of course. On our way up we tried to go up there and the hostess ladies at the front were extremely rude and said no sorry you can't go up and by the way put your mask on. As we were walking out the door. I get no one likes working on holidays but come on I really expected better quality and service. Will not return....
