The Resturant is hard to find Almost at end of pier. Manu was very limited. Food was just average. Place is probably nice in summer when outdoor seating is available. Drinks very expensive and only fair

Excellent Nashville chicken sandwich with delicious fries. Very disappointing and expensive fall salad. Good service and welcoming atmosphere. Fantastic views of the Lake and the city.

Great location, great environment. Service was very good. Food options are limited and the quality / quantity of the food varied tremendously by item ordered. The raw oysters were minuscule, and filled with shards of the shell (sloppy shucking). However, the salmon poke and tempura crunch rolls were excellent. During our visit there were some issues with the taste of the cocktails (perhaps stale mixer coming out of the bar gun?), but I believe this was likely a one-night issue and not a chronic scenario. Overall, great place for location, vibe, drinks, and bar food - but not a fine dining or full dinner contender.

Terrible service! We sat for almost thirty minutes without even having our drinks order taken and the place was empty. Went down hill from that!

Initially very bad. Check in process was hectic and then with a reservation for dinner they seated us at a couch with a low small table totally unsuitable for dining. A waiter came with water and then did not come back. We were considering leaving when we ran into a staff member who asked if all was okay. We said no and she then seated us at a table. From there dinner went fine. We had service and the food was very good.

Atmosphere is loud; wine list is limited but what we chose was good

Special drinks were great. Wine options ok, but not extensive. Appetizers very good. Hamburger ok. Salmon good. Ice cream mediocre and coffee sauce or whatever it was should be on the side. Room is spacious and tables well spaced. View is great but it was dark at this point. We will definitely come back.

Scenic location at the far end of Navy Pier. Limited menu, but the food and drinks were very good. Great place for a drink. Very casual, which can detract just a bit from the dinner experience. Lots of glass and good ventilation; not sure how warm it will be in winter.

The cocktails were good, but they need to work on their menu. Our sushi did not taste fresh, so we returned it. The interior can get quite loud, but the view is great.

Our visit started off poorly. The giant windows were open and we could get them closed. We were not served for 20 minutes. We decided to leave and management offered a second chance. We sat at the bar and had drinks and delicious dinner and were provided some compensation for our rough start. Very classy joint.

I celebrated my birthday here on Saturday, Nov 6th. The view was Beautiful and the drinks and food were Delish. Drinks are pricey but delish. There needs to be something that pops up when making reservations to let you know that you have to Valet Park in order to get the discount of $20. I called and confirmed everything before we came so I'll make sure my guests knew what was required when it came to parking. The only thing I was told was to make sure I parked in the East garage because it's closer and bring my parking ticket up to get it validated. That was incorrect information. I should have been told to valet park so you can get parking for $20 with validation. Our parking was $37!! This was the only thing that irritated me.

This is a good spot but could be great. The view and location cannot be beat. We were there for a sunset going down behind the skyline--fabulous. One, they need to lose the plastic glasses, not classy and the ones for the water--not environmentally sustainable. Two, expand the wine list. Three, add a couple of more entrees to the menu. Four, lose the patio style chairs. I know they want to keep a casual vibe, but that doesn't have to spell cheezy. Also, where are the bourbons on the menu? They are up there on a shelf at the bar but not on the digital menu. We all had the burger and it was very good, a step-up for what you might expect on Navy Pier. We would definitely go back, especially to enjoy the outdoor area in the summertime!! Although the firepits in the fall look like a good option too.

Great view, BUT- the place was cold, sterile, loud. Service ok but staff seemed disinterested in waiting on customers - no smiles, greetings. Their attitude as cold as the environment. Pizza was thin and limp with scant amount of pepperoni - obviously defrosted and reheated in a microwave. No pepper flakes were available to add a bit of taste to a tasteless piece of pie. "Crispy fries" were anything but. Soggy with way too much reheated Velveeta cheese on top. Save your hard earned cash and eat somewhere else.

Friendly staff! Carlos was amazing as our server. The food menu is quite limited but the food is excellent. The outdoor area is nice and cozy with the fire pits and the amazing views, but the indoor area is extremely noisy. They should look into doing some acoustic treatments on the ceiling to help combat that. Was bummed that there was a huge group of high school students that kind of trashed the outdoor area. Overall, a great place for drinks and appetizers with sunset skyline views.

This site has a no-lose view, for sure, and if the weather cooperates then sitting on the patios is a must. It isn't cheap, but as a downtown Chicago bar it is in line with local pricing. Staff was very friendly, the facility is very clean, and while patrons need to make the effort to get there, it is very much worthwhile. Great place!!

Drinks and food are quite expensive considering the menu is pretty limited and the quality isn’t great. Generally everything felt cheap, the silverware was plastic, and the bartender didn’t know some basic drinks. Seems like they’re mostly selling the ambience of the space, which is quite pretty and has a nice view.
