Somerset offers excellent contemporary cuisine in a pleasant upscale setting. Service is outstanding.
Burger is on the small side but very good but they don’t have mustard, only grey poupon.
We had a party of 8... had a great table upstairs overlooking the bar & seated below. Waitress was amazing - attentive but not bothersome when we wanted to talk - and helpful with menu suggestions. We celebrated my sister’s 50th bday & everything was perfect.
We went for Sunday brunch. We both had salmon benedict and found both dishes sub par. We have had much better food at many other restaurants. The service suburb. The one thing that was outstanding was the ice cream parfait desert which was very creative. Had different flavors, fruit, etc. It was great.
Overall, the food was not good enough to warrant a return visit.
Loved the atmosphere, very post modern decor. It felt welcoming and the staff reflected that as well. We went for brunch and the food was excellent. I would go back for dinner.
The octopus appetizer was out of this world. Also the squid ink pasta was so so tasty. Our waiter was very friendly and we had such a great night!
I had a reservation for 6. Naturally 5 of us were on time, but 1 was 30 mins late. The hostess was very accommodating and sat us right away when the last person arrived. It is a fun scene for brunch. The food was terrific!
Great experience at this restaurant! Celebrated a friend’s birthday and Somerset made it extra special with a personalized menu and dessert treat. Thank you for a great dinner!
Birthday celebration for my boyfriend was perfect.
We had a fantastic meal. The hostess was accommodating with the addition of a diner to our party, the sommelier stopped at the table to introduce herself and the best of all was Freddie our waiter. He was warm and attentive and even helped our son work out a problem with a Boka group gift card. We had a wonderful evening.
Amazing flavor combinations and attentive service!
Great for a brunch in a classy chic space. Food was good but was hoping for a bit more creativity on the flavors (I had the duck burrito). Will likely return.
Good food, good prices, good time.
bagel was great-authentic
service was attentive but not overbearing
coffee as good as anywhere
Like a neighborhood place but with great selections for brunch
Amazing food and amazing place. Highly recommend.
Overall was great but just too noisy. Very pretty space and great service as well as food.
Great food served in a contemporary setting by pleasant and attentive staff.
They have customized anniversary menu and complimentary champagne for our special dinner.
Service was exceptional and the food very good. A lovely experience overall. I liked that the tables were separated from each other and you did not feel like your were crammed in.
Truly outstanding service. Some of the best I’ve received in Chicago.
New Year’s Eve - while the food was ok (no stand-outs), the ambiance was very disappointing. A few scattered helium balloons did nothing to strike the holiday celebration mood.
Splintering, cheap wood tables were spaced much too close together; my husband kept getting shoved by waiters trying to squeeze by. No tablecloths or festive centerpieces - not even a couple of flowers in a bud vase.
For the cost of the menu, Somerset, you can do better.
Beautiful! Food is amazing, service was great, overall great experience.
Outstanding meal. Food was all excellent from starters on through dessert. Would love to eat here again soon.
I’m not a picky person and the food was awful. I feel bad because the service is fantastic, but we left thinking we could have gotten better fare at most any other restaurant.
A great choice for a special occasion. Food was great, decor was classy.
Food was excellent but pricey. Service was a little too attentive. We felt rushed for what should have been a leisurely dinner at that price.
New Years Eve
Wonderful meal with 8 friends. The appetizers and meal were delicious. Highlights were the conch fritters, mushroom orecchiette and short ribs. Outstanding!
For individuals who don't consume dairy, the menu is less than optimal as nearly every dish is already prepared with some sort of dairy (e.g., milk, butter). The value for money is OK, not great. The best thing about this restaurant is the bar area and overall ambiance.
Great chicken sandwich for brunch!
Food was average but venue was so cute!
Server was great, design is fun and the staff made my wife feel very special on her birthday with several small touches. The menu reads wonderfully but every dish was over
Great restaurant with awesome squid ink pasta and mushroom flatbread. Gets expensive with wine and some entrees but you can make it more affordable
Great food! The Som made a wonderful wine recommendation! This is rare for us. The appetizers were delish - Beef Tartare and a yummy cheese dip.
Everything was delicious! Our server was helpful and very nice. Loved the open kitchen concept!
My friends and I had a great time! Great food, drinks, and service!
Prefer the bar to the dining area. Nice service and food was quick. Wish they had a brunch menu.
Wonderful service from all staff members, great atmosphere, amazing food. What more could you ask for?
The food was truly delicious and creative. Get the smoked beet tartare - it’s incredible - even if you don’t like beets. Same with the kale and brussel sprout salad. The pastas were also wonderful as well as the chicken and the salmon. We had the chocolate cake and sorbet which were all fantastic. Our waiter Freddie was excellent and combined helpfulness and knowledge with charm and warmth.
We had some great drinks and wine (which they have by the glass and tasting size).
The decor is okay but the food and service definitely make this an outstanding experience.
~• One disappointing thing that we discovered only after I wrote this review. Although we ordered several of our favorite menu items for my wife, who stayed home to be with our sick daughter - we discovered that we had been given someone else’s leftovers and didn’t get the take out we had paid for. This was a bummer for all involved because we wanted to make my wife feel special after she missed the evening.
Been here several times. This time was just okay. Before it was really good. Just an off day
