Food come out sporadically which is annoying when with multiple people. The sliders were hard. Pico de Gallo was bad. The pizza was cold. Drinks were forgotten. Overall food wasn’t great
Lack of service. We waited a long time for our drinks and took forever to grab the attention of the waiter. You can tell their was a supervisor going around but from sitting down and ordering food everything took a while. And it was not packed for a usual Sunday.
Our waitress was overworked with tables so she kept forgetting items and drink. The wait time for to come and check on us was extremely to long.
food was bad, came out sporadically. Didn’t receive half of what we ordered, had to get up and get our waiter to bring us plates and cutlery. We were a group of six seated in the darkest area of the restaurant and had to use our phones to see the menu and our food.
Great experience. Great drinks. Great food.
Such a fun atmosphere, great place to bring friends visiting Chicago!
Great restaurant and location. Staff was really engaging.
Loved this place!
The bartender was friendly and provided quick service. The dj was playing great music. I enjoyed the food and received it quickly. The ambiance was fun and it was a cool touch to add games for guests to play. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Security was nice. I did come across a woman while looking for parking nearby that had her window busted and her child’s book bag was taken. That was unfortunate and a risk to park on the street. Thankfully there was a parking lot across the street. However, driving a larger truck does require wider spots. Overall, my husband and I had a wonderful date night and experience at RECESS and look forwarded to coming again.
Servers where very nice, they where very busy, they seemed understaffed. Food was solid. Atmosphere was great.
Love the casual vibe and ample space so we didn't feel crowded. Perfect for a group happy hour. The food was excellent.
Food was pretty good, it was very fun just had terrible service. Not sure if it’s always like that but the service made me not really want to come back for a second time
Good service. Good food. Decent prices.
Awesome ambiance! A bit overpriced. Two meals and two (non alcoholic) drinks were $70. A bit out of control if you ask me. Otherwise it's a cool spot.
Hailey was our waitress and she was amazing! The vibe & the food was great! I’ll be coming back!
Our waitress was not really super attentive until the very end. Additionally, she forgot part of our meal and it was only when we flagged her down did she go looking for an update.
Nice ambiance, but the food was overpriced. It was not bad. I love the decorations overall.
Accommodated all our needs for our big party. Great job Zachary!! I recommend everyone to go here
Such a beautiful place. I enjoyed the vibes, food and decor.
My waitress (I think Amanda) was inattentive and seemed to be avoiding our table. She would stop by the tables around us several times and us way less.
We never got our appetizer. That wasn't at all apologized for.
We had to literally call her to get our check.
I love this place but that service was unacceptable.
Great place to hang with friends for some drinks and enjoy the vibrant ambience. I was not impressed with the food I ordered - breakfast burrito was pretty bland!
Recess has an amazing atmosphere and a really cool patio! We had white sangria, chicken tenders, a slice of cheese pizza and the hummus. A couple parts of our order got lost in the shuffle (it's a massive place) but when we told our server she quickly rectified it. All of the food was hot, fresh and delicious. The sangria was strong and not super sweet; I enjoyed it but it might not be everyone's cup of tea. I also got a free shot for my birthday. Music was great; lots of pop hits that everyone will know and like. Overall a great place to start or end the night!
Stuff was very friendly. Everything was nice! Definitely will be back!
Very fun atmosphere! Can’t go wrong with indoor or outdoor seating.
The buffalo rolls are the best! And you have to try the creamsicle pie!
Excellent vibe! A blast!
We got brunch here and it was a lot of fun. The waitress was very kind and went above and beyond to help me out. Got a slice of Bob’s pepperoni pizza, buffalo chicken rolls, & a bloody mary and it hit the spot. We also tried the cold brew with baileys and it was sweet but good.
The atmosphere was great. The also played a variety of music. The food was good. The drinks were good just overpriced.
Service was great, food was pretty amazing. We just weren’t too crazy about the prices but overall great experience!!
Love my experience! Drink and food were great! Would definitely recommend!
Perfect place for our team happy hour. Our server was wonderful and we had a great time!
Great for drinks, not so much on the food. The chicken sandwich and breakfast burrito were so depressing. Eat before!
Nice place really good food and drinks. The music was very versatile I loved it, it was just too loud!
Awesome place for bachelor party. Highly recommend
Was seated promptly. Great food, excellent service. Plenty of paid parking close by. Ambiance was fantastic. Will definitely be back!
Tremendous outdoor dining experience. Dog friendly. Fantastic cocktails
My friends and I had an after work happy hour and had a wonderful time. The drinks and food were both good all at a reasonable price.
