Such a cute spot. Terrible service. Waitress came over to take order, bring food, never saw her again until we had to track her down for check. There for 2 hours.

Had a reservation at 8:30 that we made on OpenTable. Arrived and the hostess said no table was available, and that we would have to sit at the bar. No bar seats were available. The hostess made no other accommodations.

The place is very beautiful, I loved the ambiance and the DJ. Service was not the greatest, although girl tried to fix things - and she did. Flatbread, brussel sprouts, steak frits were really good. Don’t order tartare - it has nothing to do with real tartar. All in all, I would come back.

A fun - but very loud - spot. Great ambiance and delicious food/bubbly. The music volume was more "late night at the club" than "upscale, trendy dining with friends" and was really the only thing I didn't like about dining there.

The service was great! We were greeted right as we sat down, didn't wait too long for our drinks, and always had refills once our glass got too low. It was a great dining out experience, and the food was amazing!

This has been my favorite champagne spot for some time. As time goes on though, I feel like the service has declined slightly. Hoping it doesn't continue. We had reservations at 9pm for two and we arrived about an hour early to see if there was any chance to get in early. We were told no and that it would be at our reservation time, no problem! Never hurts to try. We come back right at 9pm and were then told that they are backed up due to large parties being there and that they don't know how long the wait would be till' our table is ready and in the mean time they can offer us to sit at a side table near the entry door and they will bring us some complimentary champagne for the inconvenience. No problem with us! We ended up sitting at the side table and never got anything complimentary. They eventually moved us to our table. I of course ordered my friend and I a bottle of champagne because it was her birthday. It just annoyed me about offering something complimentary for inconvenience and then not giving it. Not my style to inquire about it when it's not given. Wish they could keep up on the good service they used to have because I really love this place.

So disappointed as I heard such great things about RM Champagne. Tables are so close together that when you move your chair, you bump into another table or chair. It's very loud. Service was bad (but it was busy). I had flatbread (horrible) and brussel sprouts (average). Husband had chicken (so-so). Drinks were really good. Maybe it was an off night for everyone/everything. The one positive is that staff is really nice.

This place was rated one of the best date spots in Chicago, and maybe that’s the case some of the time, but definitely not on a Friday night. The music was so loud you could barely hear each other talk, and the bass was pumping loud enough for us to wonder whether this turned into some sort of club later at night. On top of that it was extremely crowded to the point where the bar area was completely full and people were bumping into/crowding the tables next to the bar area. I will say that the food was very good and the hostesses were very kind about the fact that we had to wait 30 minutes for our reservation. I would recommend the place, just not if you’re looking for a romantic date night on a Friday.

The ambiance of the restaurant was great. Loved sitting at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. Service, however, was spotty. Old fashions were very sweet but other drinks were good. Great seafood and flatbread.

The food was adequate - had a few flatbreads and entrees. Much of it was bland. Drinks were good. Service was incredibly slow and at one point our server forgot about us for 45 minutes - plates had been cleared drinks were finished but nobody came asking if we wanted another drink/dessert/ the check. There are a lot of similar places that have better food and service. I went a few weeks ago and had the same issues with slow service and adequate food.

Had a wonderful dinner of delicious french inspired food and creative cocktails until our waitress disappeared when it was time for more champagne and desert. After a half an hour, we had to flag down another waiter to pay our bill. Disappointing after such a great meal! Despite this, I would still recommend the restaurant.

This place is a hidden gem on Green Street (really, it's kind of hidden). The wine list is extensive, with a large focus on bubbly. Limited menu, but the appetizer and entrees I tasted were all very good (and the creme brulee was to die for).

So upon arriving actually on time for my reservation I had to wait a over 30 mins still for a table. Then once seated with three people at a table that could barely fit 2 8 in pies on it everyone was a little frustrated and uncomfortable. Thankfully the the front desk obliged when we asked to be moved to a more spacious table. Now here is the problem after waiting so long for food probably little over an hour all we could do was scarf down the mediocre dishes that we were served and call it a day because had plans elsewhere. I have made better food at home and it would not have taken that long nor would it have been so lack luster. I would definitely not return unless it's during the summer when the patio is open and only for drinks.

The coc au vin and the steak frits were very good. As was the steak tartar. The table was nice. My wife was on a wall seat with lots of pillows, I had a chair. The decor is cool but the scenery walking around the place was great! We were having fun people watching.

The service was a little slow, but looking at the place, slow was expected. The only down side, and it was a big one, they brought the steak tar tar appetizer with our entries.

Overall, we liked the place, but the service glitch was bad. At least we know to ask first.

The martini's were quite good, though.

First, it was a little difficult to find the entrance of this place. When we did, either the doors were accidentally locked or extremely hard to open. The hostess did not care to help, we waited until the next guest left to go in. We were seated and had to wait about 20 minutes for our server to take our drink order. Shortly after getting our drinks, she took our food order and then didn’t see her for a good 45 minutes after that. Our water glasses were empty, no one asked if we’d like another cocktail or even asked how the food was. Luckily the food was delicious. We expressed our concern to the hostess and were very disappointed when we left without a visit from a manager or front of house supervisor. Extremely disappointing. Probably won’t go back.

Second time we have been here. Great drinks, but still a bit over priced. The bass seems loud for the small size of the room. The tables are crammed in there so tight its really not possible to get up and out. That all being said the table right in front of the fireplace was great! it was a cold night so the fire was very nice. I think this is a better than most places to get a drink, but not great.

Solid drinks (bartender made a pretty good version of a Wisconsin Old Fashioned) at a price comparable to other West Loop options. Came on a Tuesday night for drinks after a dinner date. Fun moment when a couple of belly dancers came out and did their thing through the restaurant. Had a great seat next to the fireplace. Only downside was the blaring music that made conversation difficult. Too bad because the vibe in here seemed to be more of a cozy date spot, and bumping club music doesn't really jive with the setting on a weeknight.

Service was great: friendly, fast. They allowed us to move to an interior table after initially sitting us by the window where it was super drafty. We were sat quickly, no wait with our reservation. Food was good too! Very rich. Came out of the kitchen quickly. They were bumping hip hop, though, which isn’t an issue just different/interesting given the setting/decor. Don’t remember it being quite the party spot it appears to be now.

Nice ambiance, but super noisy, even on a Wednesday evening, can hardly hear a person shouting in your ear. Food was good, except for the main course - signature coq au vin - that was too salty to eat (sent it back and replaced with another entree without a problem). Also, skip the dessert - the mini pastries are actually micro and not all that good.

I thought the drinks were great and the fries were incredible. However, I made a reservation for my birthday and we got there 8 minutes late. We ended waiting around for an hour before they seated us. It felt very frustrating that they didn’t hold the table for at least 10 minutes.. and that we had to stand around for an hour with a reservation.

RM Champagne was the worst night out that I've had in the city in a long time. I made a reservation for my girlfriend and I in celebration of our one year anniversary. The reservation was for 8PM but we didn't get seated until 8:45. It appeared that our reservation made no difference and that they were seating people first come first serve. As if that weren't enough, they ended up seating us in the bar and not in the restaurant itself. From there, they proceeded to screw up our orders three times. They brought half an order of oysters, not the full order as requested. They completely forgot to bring out the brussels sprout appetizer. And our server said he was going to comp us for one of our dirty martinis because it took so long to come out, but he left it on the bill anyways. We could tell that some of the workers there were trying to make up for their mistakes by comping us free drinks, but it couldn't make up for the litany of screw ups that we experienced. These free drinks must have cost a pretty penny. Five comp'd drinks in total. SMH. Will not be a repeat customer.
