What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

Quiote is a Mexican spot in Logan Square that works for just about anything. Come for coffee, on a date, or just to have some mezcal at the bar.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

This was our second visit to Quiote but will NOT be our last! Besides outstanding Mescal choices and margaritas, the dinner menu was a fabulous succession of small share-able plates. One after the other we were blown away with the flavors and creativity. The waitress and entire wait staff were superb. Informative, attentive, unobtrusive. Our group of 5 enjoyed the heck out of this evening and spent the following day recounting the wonderful plates to one another. Great job Quiote!!!!

We were traveling through Chicago and had already done some research on this restaurant, noticed they had won an award and also they were recommended by another restaurant owner in Michigan. We booked it through Open Table as they seemed to fill up and we didn't want to miss this opportunity. Food was outstanding. Service just as good. Had an interesting downstairs that apparently was a bar with food service from a food truck parked on their property. Really a neat idea. Waitperson said we should check it out but since we were more than satisfied with our meal chose not to. Next time in time we will.

The food is amazing in that each dish has so much flavor with different tastes. Everything is delicious and in addition to their cocktails, the winds are great too.

Quiote uses ingredients and methods that are familiar to eaters of Mexican cuisine, but it may have been elevated by technical sophistication and borrowings from other (one of our dishes featured a piece of smoked fish more reminiscent of the classy Jewish deli) into something new. High marks for creativity and execution.

Food was very good along with the service but very overpriced for the portions you received. If they fixed the value (portion) it would be perfect. Unfortunately nothing was done for our friends birthday that we mentioned besides a candle in the dessert that he ordered and paid for.

Took some out of town friends here for brunch and it lived up to my expectations, having been for brunch and dinner (once each) before. The food is absolutely delicious, the bar and waitstaff are both great - super friendly, nice, and accommodating. Brunch is a little on the expensive side but worth it. Dinner is, in my opinion, a little bit exorbitantly priced. Wish I could come for dinner more often!

Service was slow. Waiter was covering too many people.
Requested an outside table and was told they were reserved already. Ate in the front area and watched a table outside remain empty for the entire hour we there.
My food was delivered Luke warm. Returned it and by that time was no longer interested in eating.

I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant and have no intentions of returning

We came here for brunch with my niece who is a celiac. The server kindly marked all of their menu options for her that were already or could be made gluten-free. Everyone was friendly and attentive but down to earth. The brunch entrees we ordered were great and portions were generous. One in my party ordered a Bloody Mary which was not bad, but on the bland side for a Bloody Mary. But if that minor thing is the only negative, then it's good. Definitely coming back to this place but would like to try dinner.

We went for a Sunday brunch. We made a reservation for 4 at 10am, but it wasn't necessary. The restaurant was not crowded. Food was absolutely delicious. The cocktails were interested and wonderful. They have a lot of Mezcal options, but a good selection of other drinks as well. I had the vegetarian tacos and they were fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. A friend and I shared the crab tostada, burrata salad, tamale and quail dish. Also enjoyed a glass of ginger beer, and didn’t even miss the alcohol! The ambience and vibe is fun, yet sophisticated. Although we dined indoors, their outdoor cafe and patio is hip, beautiful and welcoming. Don’t miss this great place!

This place never disappoints! The chef is a creative genius. The portions are the perfect sharing size. Go with a big group so you can try more! The cocktails are also among the best I’ve had at a nouveau-Mexican-style place. Definitely recommend the fried oyster tacos, the bone marrow (and I’ve never been a fan of bone marrow!), and the chicken molé!! But the menu changes periodically so there’s always something new to try!!

Had tried Quiote approximately a year ago and had a very pleasant experience. However, was very disappointed by the service this time around - dishes came out in a haphazard manner, nobody asked us for a second round of drinks, one dish never made it out of the kitchen. The food, while good, was not as meticulously assembled as on the previous occasion. There are many excellent options in Chicago. I am not sure if I would give this one another shot.
