I has the BLT — the bread was so hard it actually hurt the roof of my mouth!
We did not expect such GREAT salads and sandwiches!
This is a great place to eat before opera. The food is excellent, servers are very good.
We were late because of traffic but the hostess was lovely and was able to accommodate us and got us out in plenty of time for opera.
Always enjoy eating here.
Team dinner and we had a great experience. Server was top notch. Scallops were delicious
I had a friend in town that many friends wanted to see and we had a very short window of time to make it happen. One North came through like a champ for us and we had a leisurely dinner and visit with our friend in the one short hour we had. I’m grateful the food was good, the service was good and they accommodated our unusual requests brilliantly! Thanks, One North! We’ll be back!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad that you enjoyed yourselves and had a great experience. Looking forward to seeing all of you again very soon!
Our table of 9 dined outdoor at One North Kitchen Bar. The menu was versatile and had enough choices to make everyone happy. We all enjoyed our meals and our waitress was friendly and attentive. I would definitely return when in Chicago.
Ordered a medium rare burger. It was well done, I would say borderline burnt…. I did not complain about it to the server so cannot to hold against them to correct the issue. I did not want to wait around during rush lunch hour.
Attentive service, great reno, inventive menu - try again!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed yourself! We will be sure to let Efren know how happy you were with his service. Hope to see you soon!
It's a bit loud but reliably good
They do a nice job. Really loud though for a business lunch.
Not until they re-open after renovation. They were short on a lot of items listed on the menu because they were not re-stocking at this time
Food was delicious and great service!
Loud and slow service food was jsut ok but waiter was generally very nice
We used to like to come here as it was across from the Opera House. Last visit we had steaks that were over cooked and grossly, stale bread, tasteless and dry apple pie and a chocolate martini where there was little if any chocolate. We probably will not go back. A shame, it used to be great!
Dinner was delicious; the wait staff was most accommodating.
The cosmopolitans were awful -- too sweet with hardly any alcohol. We asked for better ones, he brought the same ones back with an extra dash of lime juice. Really? The grilled asparagus tasted like propane was spilled on it. The whitefish was so overpowered with sweet potatoes, squash and other sides that it got lost -- and you could barely taste it. We did like the dessert of mango sherbet and fresh fruit. Our waiter was excellent -- it wasn't his fault about the food and drink.
Great experience for my staff team - food and service was great!
Great pre opera dinner choices. Very good service
One North Kitchen never disappoints. We enjoy a quick meal there before the opera. The food is great, the servers are attentive and aware of the need to get out in time for the downbeat. Service was especially good on our last visit. I highly recommend this place.
Service is good. Burger is a pre-made patty; not my favorite. Everything else was fine.
We have eaten there many time before going to the opera across the street. However, this time the service was poor, the food was mediocre and cold when served
Our waiter didn’t seem to be concerned
I doubt we will return
I had a reward that I had earned through Open Table that I wanted to use at this place. I was informed by our waitress that the manager on site, Erica, would not honor this reward (even though this establishment uses Open Table). When I asked why she would not honor the reward, I was not given any answer. I have been to this place several times but due to this atrocious customer service from their manager Erica, I will never be visiting this place again.
Directly across Wacker from the Lyric Opera, this spacious restaurant/bar serves appetizers, sandwiches, salads, soups, and entrees--all guided by Laura Piper, formerly chef at Trattoria No. 10. The "happy hour" at 1N extends from 3-8 pm, including reduced prices on drinks, flatbreads, and other small bites. My wife and I enjoyed our dinner (turkey chili, rigatoni with brisket ragu, berries with mango sorbet) and Claudio's very patient and friendly service was exceptional.
Nice place to host lunch with office visitors
Solid restaurant. The food is delicious as is the service. Never a disappointment.
After several visits the service and food have been inconsistent.
This has always been a go-to lunch spot; I thought I would try it for pre-opera dinner. I was disappointed that the lighting was more like a sports bar than pre-theater restaurant. The food was okay, but not as flavorful as it could be and the service was out of character. The waiter was very polite, however the team kept trying to take our plates away, even when we were clearly still enjoying the meal.
I'll go back for lunch but would not recommend it for dinner.
We ate there om an opera night. The menu is limited, but the Steak Medallion Salad was good. There is no bread basket as a starter & I would have enjoyed a roll w/ the salad. My husband had clam chowder & a cheese burger which were fine. The wine menu is a little pricy as there are no house wines. Service was excellent.
Great place to get a quick lunch however service was somewhat slow in getting Waiter and servers attention.
Dinner and the service were exceptional. I have food allergies which the chef acknowledged and prepared a top notch entree. I love this place.
Good spot for dinner after Lyric matinee opera.
Food was good. They were very responsive to my dining companion's dietary requirements, which was great. We were there on opera night and despite a full house the food arrived promptly and we made it to Lyric without any issues. From my point of view, the only problem I see is that the opera night menu doesn't include any vegetarian entrees--I wound up having an appetizer and a salad instead, but an actual entree would have been nice.
I’d recommend before opera for sure. Not sure why i didn’t get open table points for this reservation.
Excellent service and food
This is an wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent. The service is outstanding: Both times I’ve been here, the wait staff has made me feel as if I am the only customer there when the place is packed. I highly recommend it!
Delicious food and drink and delightful wait staff!
Had a great lunch. Salad was fabulous and would go back again.
This was like going to a very overpriced Applebee’s. They give you no bread with the soup or salad, which are pretty basic. The burger was so charred, I felt like I was giving myself cancer right then and there. The only redeeming thing was the service. Our server was absolutely delightful. Overall, major thumbs down experience.
