Loved the decor here. Specialty drinks were great. The wine list is outstanding, they even have unique European wines by the bottle. I was able to order a bottle of Croatian wine which is hard to find in Chicago. Our server was fantastic, steered us in the right direction for our meal selections. The duck and swordfish were delicious.
Ridiculously good food and cocktails as well as great staff.
I truly love Sepia, so something must have been “off”: The service was absent minded & slow. They introduce us the the waiter that was shadowing the primary waiter, but it still seemed too slow, even with that explanation. I had the owner of my firm & a few clients with me, and it was very noticeable.
Will try again because the food is truly fabulous and the portions are perfect.
As always, food, service and drinks are amazing!
Waiter was super nice and helpful in making choices. Everything from our cocktail to our food was phenomenal
The food was delicious, and a good value compared to other Michelin-starred restaurants. The service was attentive, never leaving us wanting or needing anything.
Food and service were wonderful and appropriately relaxed for our group of 6. We had the 6 course tasting menu and enjoyed it all.
One of my best meals in Chicago
We had dinner as party of 9. We we’re given a beautiful private corner. The food is delicious and well presented. We ordered different dishes including the dishes in their taste menu. The service is good and warm.
Loved sepia. Will return soon. Too much to describe. Bottom line was amazing high end food without pretentiousness.
Everyone took great care of us. Helped us with food choices and wine pairings. Loved every bit of it.
Disapointed, not the same place we have visited before. Sad menu, maybe it was the day after xmas. Not much of a value for $400 for 4 people. Fish was good, other entrees were not much, as were the appetizers. Will not be back.
Menu received at the end of the night did not match the food we received. Pasta dish had something hard that didn’t belong in the dish.
Absolutely great food destination. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. However, not for spendthrips.
Wonderful service; food was amazing. We’ll be back
We came here for a work lunch. It took over two hours. I should feel safe scheduling a 11:45 lunch time when people have 1:30 meetings. I got to sit across from my boss and watch him give me the "We need to get back to work face." for the last hour. Also, fix the flickering light over that table.
Disappointed with our experience. Ambiance and service were great, but food was mediocre at best. Expectations were high, but this was OK at best. For being starred Michelin this was not even close
This was our first visit, but we will surely be back. The foie gras and paté was smashing, as was the celery apple soup, a really fine version of a classic. The sturgeon was perfectly cooked in Berbere spice, and was outstanding. Only the pumpkin risotto disappointed, bland, under-salted and essentially flavorless (though with good texture.)
Sepia is an outstanding value at lunch. The food is worth the Michelin star, though the risotto needs retiring.
Excellent food and presentation. Not so attentive service. Had to ask for water 3 times and it never came despite the apology. The previous time all was good.
We had a really nice time. Great staff (team) there. Our 12th anniversary
Wyatt was awesome.
John and Kari
Everything was great. Wished the temperature was warmer. Kept my jacket in the whole time.
Great food and superb service . Highly recommend
Food and service were awesome. Among our group, we tried just about all food options and loved everything. Only negative was that the seats for our table were really low - uncomfortably so - like being seated at the kids’ table.
Had prix fee lunch, food and service was excellent
Our first visit to this lovely restaurant. Food, service wonderful. Innovative and superb preparations without any pretension. Bet warm and friendly
In our party of two the waitress brought a wrong order. It took ten minutes for the correct order to arrive. She never wrote anything down. Annoying
We went here to celebrate a girlfriend’s birthday. And we’re given a lovely private table at the back. Excellent service with some lovely special touches for her birthday !
Everything about our experience at Sepia was fantastic; from the complimentary coat check at the door, all the service staff and of course the food and sommelier service. She helped me pick the perfect glass to go with my meal. The amuse buche was the perfect start (especially appreciated the accidental second serving), and my beet appetizer and duck main course were delicious. Same could be said for my husband’s Japanese sweet potato ravioli and tri-tip. To cap it off I appreciated the birthday message on the dessert plate and the extra mini desserts at the conclusion. I highly recommend Sepia for any occasion and can’t name a more affordable and approachable yet refined Michelin started restaurant.
Everything went well until the end: when we completed meal it took a 1/2 hour to get plates cleaned and the check. We wanted dessert but had an appointment to meet so no time for dessert
As was true of our previous visits, Sepia impressed with expert service, creative and beautifully prepared dishes and an interesting wine list. We'll be back again and again.
Great food with great presentation. We will try this restaurant again.
Sepia was delicious. The portions look small, but the flavour is big and the food was very satisfying. Our table each ordered an appetizer and a main and we shared a single desert - the food was so rich and filling.
The room is very vibrant and busy, akin to NYC Resturant’s buzz. It was sometimes hard to hear across the table, but the atmosphere lessened the formalness of the experience.
People seems a little more formal than I would have expected. No short-sleeved shirts. Mostly jacket/ no tie - a business casual situation.
Excellent food. Would recommend.
Service was late. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings and they consequently served the wine between the dishes not with. The service personnel was absent and there was a long wait between each serving. The food in it self did not seem to qualify for a Michelin star. The wine servings were disappointingly miniscule. I will definitely not be coming back, let alone recommend this place to others.
Absolutely outstanding from start to finish. Knowledgable bartender, amazing presentation and delicious food.
We had dined at Sepia several months ago and had a good experience. However our dinner Sunday was very sub par. First off the waiter was rude at best. He was condescending and impatient. The food was not up to prior standards. Three people in our party sent their plates back to the kitchen as the meat was almost raw and it was cold.
One of the best resturants in Chicago.
This place was amazing. The host and my server Kevin were spectacular. The food was phenomenal and had me feeling like Remy in Ratatouille when he puts the food in his mouth and visualizes the taste in sounds and colors. Food shouldn't just be eaten it should be an experience and Sepia did a magnificent job in providing it.
Great food perfectly paired, service is top notch
Absolutely fabulous. We were semi-regulars many years ago when they opened, and were fickle and moved on to all the new spots as they opened... but just went back (with their Michelin star) and were absolutely delighted (as were our clients). Modern, on trend, delicious food, without being so out-there-crazy-trying-too-hard ~ Andrew Zimmerman's food is wonderfully inventive and delicious. Presentations are gorgeous. Service thoughtful and easy-going. Still a beautiful room. AND bonus... we could actually enjoy a conversation WHILE we were eating! Definately you should go.
