Disappointing. They promised us vegetarian choices. They were not very willing to change anything on the menu or add to the menu. So my vegetarian friends had nothing to eat because they did not like smoke cheese

Cavatelli did not taste fresh. The venison on the cavatelli had no wow to it. The rabbit and duck were both cold. There was nothing wrong with the flavors but there was nothing great about them either

We did enjoy the wine list that was well priced. We did not feel the need to bill that is the qpr (Quality price ratio) was not that good.

Hence disappointing in a Michelin starred restaurant

The service was good and the ambience was nice. The food was all very good, but nothing really shone. The best thing we had was the rabbit--a nice marriage of flavors and sauces. The initial lagniappe was also very good.

We were celebrating our 30th anniversary!Everything on the menu looked outstanding. Our waiter Isaac suggested the tasting menu. We chose to do the wine pairing as well. The wine director Jennifer knows what she's doing! The wine was spectacular and went perfectly with the food. We're typically red wine drinkers was learned that we really enjoy white ! The crab ravioli with Meyer lemon was amazing! Every detail is well thought out. The service was spot on!! We will definitely be back.

Service not good at all. Love the Chicago nightlife and restaurant scene. Very involved socially, this was not a good experience. I was with 9 guests for a birthday celebration and the food took forever. Steak not prepared well. At the end, check issues, a fiasco.

Great food and restaurant. Decided to go on a Monday night and it seemed like there were a lot of business dinners going on at around evening time.

Our experience was perfect. The food was fabulous! We ordered duck and rabbit as our 2 main courses, and they were exquisite! We asked the staff to pair our starters and mains with wines and the choices were perfect. Our server was professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. Sunday evening is a great time to dine at Sepia because the restaurant is not crowded. This is a perfect environment if you want to relax, take your time, and talk to your dining partners. We can't wait to return.

My wife and I arrived at Sepia for a 9:15pm reservation during the restaurant week, and used the valet parking service they provide. Valet parking uses the parche app so credit is available and you can tip on there as well.

We were promptly greeted at the door by two hostesses, and were asked for our coats and promptly taken to our seats.

As we walked through the restaurant to our seats we noticed the beautiful artwork, and chandeliers in one of the most amazing dining areas. The bar was a nice cozy size, for intimate conversation.

The four course meal was impeccable, and I can not even use enough descriptive words to explain how fantastic the meal was. The first dish I had was a smoked rabbit country pate, and my wife had baby beet with bebitas habenero and white chocolate. The second dish I had was pasta allá chitarra and my wife had ricotta cavatelli. The main entre I had was cornmeal encrusted trout, and my wife had beer braised beef shoulder. Finally desert, my choice was the Meyer lemon semifreddo, and my wife’s was Paris brest. Each portion size was enough, not too small and not too big. Just the right amount were I was able to get through all of these amazing dishes and not feel bloated by the end.

Sepia definitely offers a dining experience that tops the list, and I would highly recommend this fine dining establishment to anyone.

I must say the interior decor was definitely done tastefully. However, I to be honest I am not sure it delivers with its food. Nothing tasted particularly offensive; however I would describe it as “uninspiring”, especially for a Michelin stared restaurant. When compared to comparable restaurants such as Blackbird & Boka, it lacks creativity. Also, the effort in the plating and the overall presentation leaves a lot to be desired. I thought a restaurant by Andrew Zimmerman would have more creativity.
