We were lucky enough to receive a gift from my brother and his wife to dine at this Chicago hot spot. We had heard the Obamas come here from time to time, and thought it might be too trendy or preciious, and we were pleasantly proven wrong! The ambiance is warm and quiet, with enough soft materials to dampen the brick and metal within the decor. The food was tasty, and filled with interesting flavors and brilliant presentation. The duck breast and the lake trout were our delightful and filling entrees. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Would return for sure.

This restaurant is a class act. The food and service are outstanding.
I wish I could afford to dine here once per month. I would certainly do the 5 course menu next time.

A wonderful meal. Everything was fresh, and you could taste the purity of the food. The amuse bouche (sp?) was a great start. The salmon crudo melted in your mouth. The crab agneloti were good but not out of the park. My fish was fresh and tasty, and an incredible wine list with a friendly wait staff!

Everything we ate was outstanding except the chicken, which was just fine. Many of the tables are very close to each other and inadvertent eavesdropping is unavoidable. Still highly recommend for an outstanding meal. Service and staff was great. Our server Jose was perfect combination of personable without being intrusive.

The food was excellent. The service was flawless: unobtrusive and attentive at the same time. Our server answered our questions and provided good advice. The ambiance was outstanding. Great decor, nice lighting, and great jazz playing at the right volume. Our table of 7 had a wonderful dining experience that couldn't have been better.

Simply amazing! Visiting Chicago for my husbands 70th birthday celebration, Sepia was a must! All of our guests were from out of town as well. Our waiter was incredibly helpful & knowledgeable. The food was incredible, none of us went home disappointed in fact we all talked about how blown away we were with all of our dishes. We are sure to return. Thank you for making our evening so special! ❤️🧡💛💗💓

My wife and I have been to many Michelin rated restaurants and this one was better then most. We had the Prix fix tasting menu with the wine pairing. The Salmon dish was the best I have ever had. The Pasta dish was my favorite and so good, great texture, venison ragu, mmmmm. The wine pairings were the only thing of the whole experience that was just good and not great. We would highly recommend and definitely go back.

I was very disappointed in the quality of food and portions for the prefix Easter Brunch. I felt ripped off. I've been to Sepia before and frequent other restaurants in the group. It was a huge disappointment on a holiday.

From start to finish, a perfect pace, presentation and thoughtful service made for an exquisite dining experience. Not a morsel left on the plates, wine in the bottles, or hunger in the belly. While not inexpensive, the meal was a fantastic value. 5 different appetizers all complimented beautifully together when they were expected to bear different notes. No one wanted to share their main courses lest they be left with less of them - true sign of great plates. We will definitely return!!!

Were were seated promptly at a table for two. The row of tables for two were rather
closely spaced, but the noise was not excessive. We did end up having a conversation
with the table next to us, since it was impossible not to hear much of what was being discussed,
and we were familiar with the college under discussion.

Food was nicely done and presented. The wine list was typical of a place that makes
considerable profit on wine. Bottles from little or unknown wineries, and with known
impressive wines the profit margin was also impressive. Still, the wine was good , the food
excellent, and it was a pleasantly memorable experience.

We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings. This was after enjoying a cocktail and their cheese sampler. The meal was wonderful, the wine pairing was well done. Our server, Jason, did a nice job informing us about what we were eating and drinking. We would return and recommend others to give it a try.

This restaurant is lovely, and we appreciated the ambience, the calm pace, the not-too-loud for conversation noise level, the excellent service, and the delicious food. We had the tasting menu and it was excellent. I was visiting from San Francisco, and noted that the price for a comparable testing menu in SF would be substantially more, so this meal was a very good value. Overall, a really special restaurant and dining experience.

Sepia provided an all-around perfect experience! Our server Kim demonstrated a perfect balance of warmth and professionalism. Her knowledge of the many menu items is extensive and she made excellent recommendations. She also suggested wines that paired beautifully with the courses we selected. Her timing was perfect and we lacked for nothing. The menu items we selected were superb. A frisbee salad with an egg fried with panko was novel and delicious. Both main courses (bass and rabbit) were perfectly done. On this particular Sunday night, the restaurant was almost filled but the noise level made it easy to talk to each other. In all, a total pleasure!

We had a spectacular meal at Sepia from the Amuse Bouche to dessert, every dish was an A+. There are so many dishes on the menu that I would like to go back and try! Our server was excellent and kept us right on schedule since we were going to the theatre. We would go back in a heartbeat!!

Overall experience was nice, but our server disappeared for about one hour during dinner. I had a cocktail prior to dinner. But he offered no wine suggestions for dinner. He never returned so I wasn't able to order a glass of wine with dinner. After the meal, he suggested wine that would have gone well with my entree but that's a little late. This type of lassitude is frankly stupid. It tarnished the evening.
Valet parking was convenient. Host was pleasant.

Great ambiance, modern but not slick. Very courteous and accommodating staff from entering to table services. I had the boiled cod and it was delicious with a great presentation in a bowl. Portions were good, perfect for lunch.
