    Our menus were misprinted, and the place was empty, so right off the bat things weren't great. There was one table of about ten, and there were disturbing and very loud. My stepmom got the lobster sandwich, which was chewy. I have an allergy to truffle, and the waitress was not very helpful in telling me which dishes to avoid- I almost ate my sisters burger, which would have been bad both for my health and because (according to her) it was pretty bad. Then to top it all off my cocktail tasted tequila on ice. Overall, I was not impressed. I will say that the crispy rice and my Salmon were excellent, and the decor would have been nice if I could have heard my party and they had closed the door (it was 65 outside- come on!). It could be a nice restaurant, but they really need some work on training and the food if they want to keep the prices as high as they are. I wish we had gone for tacos or pizza intead.

    My friend and I made a last minute reservation. We both live in the neighborhood. We sat indoors. Service was very attentive. We ordered 2 apps and shared an entree. Food was quick. Apps (tuna and crab) were delicious. I didn’t like the salmon but my friend had no issue with it. I would definitely go back.

    Food was meh, falafel was dry and overcooked. An umbrella would have been nice for mid day sun control. Sparkling wine way overpriced for volume. Would look for a better spot in the neighborhood next time.

    Phenomenal dinner! We ordered every appetizer and an additional special appetizer for our party of seven. Everything was fantastic and presented beautifully. We shared two salads (outstanding) and each ordered an entree. Halibut, branzino, and pastas were among the best we’ve had in Chicago. Cocktails were delish (comfortably numb is a stand out). A quiet, beautiful space makes for the perfect date night or special occasion dinner, but we can hardly wait to return for the food without any reason.

    Service was pretty bad I’m sad to say. No one even came to the table for the first 20 minutes. We had to ask for things multiple times. The server was very inattentive for what seemed to be a pretty small crowd. I think you’re paying for the location, rather than the food, which wa also fairly mediocre. Overall very disappointed.

    Somerset is a cute Art-Deco style eatery—the decor alone sold me on trying this place out. I came here with two gal pals for brunch on a Sunday afternoon, and even though it was during Memorial Day weekend, it wasn't extremely packed. Patrons have a choice to dine indoors or on the outside patio—we took advantage of eating inside with the air conditioning. The brunch food was good—portions are sufficient, but not necessarily worth the price. I got the Gold Coast Breakfast, and the Monroe cocktail. The eggs weren't anything to write home about—but the potatoes and chicken sausages were well-seasoned. The cocktail was tasty and the alcohol wasn't too overpowering. Our server was very attentive and friendly, so it made for a pleasant experience. I'd come back for another visit, but maybe I'll try the dinner options—I wasn't too impressed with brunch.

    Bartenders for our pre dinner drink were super rude and treated us like a bother, and once we were sat for dinner, our waitress basically ignored us for the entire evening, taking care of smaller tables around us but rushing by. We had to wait over 45 minutes to place our food order.

    I dined here with my mother for my birthday over the weekend. Ashley was absolutely incredible and the food and drinks were amazing. The ambiance is also very cool and has as great Chicago vibe. Everyone we talked to was very pleasant and the rooftop bar, Deveraux, was also a great experience. One of my favorite spots in the city!

    We enjoyed our evening at Somerset. The spicy crab on rice app was outstanding, as was the burrata. The short rib main was very good, as was the sea bass. It took a while to get the drinks, even though the restaurant was not crowded, but the service was generally good. The ambience was nice--we could have a conversation easily. We will go back.

    I took my family to the Somerset to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. The ambiance and food were perfect for our celebration. However, the service was atrocious and definitely not up to par for the price we paid for our meal. With so many good restaurants in the area, I would definitely choose a different location for our next meal out.

    Hostess was abrupt and rude. When asked for a table outside she said "no" and when asked how long of a wait she said "when they decide to leave". Service was poor - it began well but then declined. We got our drinks quickly but they only offered one Chardonnay by the glass which my guests didn't care for or drink. Waiter did not check to see if was ok. We had a wonderful salad with Gorgonzola and strawberries and then waited over 20 minutes for entries. We finally asked another waiter for our food; which came quickly. We also asked another waiter for our check and once again waited a very long time. We won't return.
