I was a bit disappointed in the poached bass. Not up to the standards I have enjoyed on all my other visits.
Everything was wonderful - Sepia is an excellent choice for a restaurant close to the theatre district. They helped us meet our time while enjoying the tasting menu. Each course was beautiful to look at and delicious - the tartar with celery root and grapes on brioche, agnolotti and morels with nettle sauce, sea scallops, wagyu beef and desert. Each course was unique and brought unexpected flavors. They have a wonderful, well-priced wine list as well.
Food was really good and extensive wine list. Will definitely visit again!
I always enjoy visiting Sepia when I’m in town. One thing I’ve noticed is that the waitstaff really aggressively clears plates. Like, I’m still chewing my last bite and they whisk the plate away. It’s a bit jarring. If they just waited two more beats to let me swallow and take a breath, it would feel a lot better.
We always enjoy the experience
Food was delicious and staff was attentive and friendly. Will definitely recommend it and return
Fantastic food and service
Awesome food and service.
Great food !
Great spot in Chicago. Good food and creative cocktails. The service was attentive and helpful.
The food was well done - interesting flavors and presentation. We had a variety of appetizers and entrees and everyone enjoyed their meals. They also have a tasting menu (which was pretty tempting) but we all ordered a la carte.
Overall - highly recommended. Great experience and a good value for the experience.
Our server, Alex, was fantastic. Atmosphere was quiet and sophisticated. Food was unbelievably good - we got the salmon and the chicken. We ordered two of the cocktails and are already planning to come back for the rest. Overall one of the best dining experiences in Chicago.
Beef Tartar is absolutely superb. Rates up with Batard restaurant in NYC.
Very nice restaurant that we went to for a special occasion (50th wedding anniversary). Food was quite good, although not 10% of restaurants.
Amazing food and service. Will definitely be back.
Food did not disappoint. For the price we thought is was very much in line with expectations and we can’t wait to go back. Only downside was that it was very loud and sometimes hard to follow the conversation at our own table.
The service was just fine, but it took an extraordinary amount of time to get our food and none of us had ordered anything special. That was the second time in a row. The first time I did not review negatively thinking it was a one off.
Ambience is great, service was very good and attentive but the food was good but not ￼what I would expect at this price point. Extensive and excellent wine list.
Wonderful experience. Table for 9 and beautifully managed
Delicious meal. The set menu with wine pairings was outstanding. The wines worked perfectly with each course. Highly recommended.
I love this restaurant. I have dined here with my family and friends and I have never been disappointed.
Service is top notch. Food is delicious, ambience is quiet, and a lot of effort goes to taking care of all details of your reservation.
I highly recommend it!
Not good for a business meal. Having to order all at once for everyone is not typical for business meals. Our company is removing this location from the dinner option location.
Excellent pre fixed menu. Service could’ve been better, but still very nice staff. Food was spectacular
Outstanding food and service. Creative and innovative and simply delicious!
The server wasn’t very pleasant
We found the courses to be moderately long in between serving, and then the clearing of the plates at the end premature
The interior is a little deceptive in that the best tables are in back, away from the street. Good food and service.
Great fine dining option downtown Chicago. Well-curated wine selection and amazing dishes - beautiful decor.
Food was beautifully prepared. Burger was not the best I have had - however still a very nice meal for lunch
Second time for me. Lamb pappardelle, excellent and complex taste. Duck breast good but nothing innovative about it. Pear upside down cake was dry, nicely presented thought with ice cream and grapes. Servers seemed a bit overwhelmed. Expected better experience.
Roxy saved the day. She is an amazing server...informative, helpful and a true professional. Same for the bartender...whose name i unfortunately didn't learn. both really made us feel welcomed. the desk staff are snotty, somewhat rude and overly impressed with themselves....on the phone and in person. a class or two in "customer experience" would benefit them greatly. food was great. the artichoke soup fantastic. beautiful restaurant.
We had a marvelous dinner at Sepia. Our server, Tangela was amazing and so attentive. The scallops and the cod were definitely the culinary stars of the night for us and the wine choices of Jennifer complimented the food so well! I highly recommend just letting her choose wines for you as she has impeccable taste and is so incredibly intuitive in her selections. Can’t wait to come back the next time I’m in Chicago!
Fantastic food - service was less professional and organized than I would have expected, but zero complaints with the food.
Impeccable food and service (every time) in a lovely, refined setting. Sepia is always pitch perfect.
This is perhaps the 5th or 6th time I have been to Sepia. The food has been reliably excellent, but the noise in the restaurant has gotten progressively more oppressive since the bar scene in front has taken off. I used to recommend Sepia as one of the quieter fine restaurants where one could carry on a normal conversation. Unfortunately, it isn't that anymore. Some thought needs to be given to dampening the noise from the bar.
The atmosphere was welcoming and we felt comfortable from the moment we entered the restaurant and the hostess took our coats. Our server Paige was very friendly and not snooty. We ordered 3 different entrees and we were not disapointed. Everything we tasted was perfectly seasoned and well balanced. We ordered a pork dish, a chicken dish and a beef dish and with every bite was delicious. Beautiful presentation and great service. Great attention to detail
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Beautiful presentations, memorable and creative flavors and fun cocktails! Highly recommend!!
Our service and food quality were both incredible. Sepia is a gem! The setting is unique and gorgeous. The menu is expertly curated. The food was like artwork, unique and wonderful. Cannot wait to go back.
Service & food were average. Tables were in rough condition. Prices were way to hgh for all we got.
Overall we were ALL VERY disappointed!
