Located in the heart of the theatre district in the Chicago loop, we are located in the lobby of the 70 W Madison building. Whether you're looking for the perfect spot for your power lunch, happy hour, private event or pre-theatre dining we have the perfect space for you!

We believe in the long-term benefits of good food. We invest a little more time sourcing quality ingredients that are sustainable, locally farmed and hormone and antibiotic free.

We also value the short-term result of a fabulous meal. Our chefs spent a lot of time creating a menu stacked with options so fresh and delicious, our customers have to invest a few minutes of their own to make some difficult decisions!

We know that time is money, our team is excellent at discerning when our customers want to linger with their clients until the contract is signed, or when they need efficient service so they make it to the theater on time.

The food was good as it seemed fresh, but the portions were small and from a value perspective, it was expensive. For the two of us, having a chopped salad and a cheeseburger and then one domestic beer and a glass of wine, it was almost $60 with tip. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.

Great service and food. Location is ideal for theaters in the area. We were there Tues after Labor Day so was not crowded and had plenty of time for enjoyable meal and made it to Hamilton in plenty of time around the corner.
My wife had the lamb which was very tender and tasty. I had the pork tenderloin which was somewhat dry and overcooked. However the surprise dessert they had for our anniversary celebration was very good.
Would certainly recommend for drinks and dinner before the theater.

Stock & Ledger was fun and perfect location before our show . However, the office building location detracts from the ambiance. The waitstaff and host staff were fantastic. The drink was very watered down and the appetizer used prosciutto that seemed either old or still thawing from being frozen . The entree was a little stark and a bit undercooked for my liking of salmon but the rhubarb crisp dessert made up for it. Overall it was a good dinner. We were just excited to be going to Hamilton.

We had a great experience for a pre-show dinner. A bit noisy in the main room, so we asked for a table in the "patio" in the lobby/atrium between the main room and the street, usually for happy hour guests. What a great space. Server Jacqueline is first rate, knowing the menu down to the taste and alcohol content of each of the three ciders. I went with the risotto, a longtime favorite. It was the best I've had in the US (except for maybe my Italian immigrant grandmother's!). We'll be back.

Waiter was very helpful as my teenage daughter had a very bad stomachache and couldn’t eat her meal. He was attentive, caring and even helped us get pepto bismol! She was able to eat her meal the next day-we took it with us. Food was great (my husband and I were able to eat at the restaurant) and the service went above and beyond.

We were late to the restaurant due to accidents on 290 (big surprise). I called the restaurant twice to update them about our status. They were very understanding and stated that it was not a problem, just arrive safely. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Service was great. Prices are moderate - not outrageous at all for Chicago.

The bar could not serve a Bloody Mary. We ordered the Walleye off the menu and the fish they brought was not Walleye. I am from MN and have eaten Walleye my whole life. This was a different white fish but the kitchen refused to believe me. We also ordered the NY Sirloin steak which needed to be sent back because it was extremely under cooked. Our server was very attentive and accommodating but she couldn't correct the problems with the bar and/or the food.

Stock & Ledger is a very good place for a client/business lunch or dinner. The staff was very friendly, the food was delicious and unique. It's a handsome setting with a beautiful bar area and both tables and booths for dining. We were in a bit of a rush having arrived late for our reservation and on our way to the theatre. Staff hurried our orders along which was appreciated.

Everything was decent. Both chicken dishes were very dry. Buratta was good. Old fashion wasn’t made properly but wasn’t awful. Restaurant was only 40% full but somehow still very loud.

We were various family members in town for a wedding, so different ages, relations and viewpoints. (I hope we didn’t get too loud!).

But the seating was optimal for us and the food was spectacular (the burrata of the day, and the various entrees of which the scallops and risotto were standouts).

Our waiter was INFINITELY patient and kindly...I didn’t get his name, but perhaps you can trace this back. He was very pleasant even when we had to get the bill refigured for a discount from a nearby theatre.

Also, I got there first and was graciously seated at the bar by the hostess, to wait for the others.
She was sweet and accommodating.

Thanks for all your hospitality there, kids. I will definitely return in the future!

The perfect place for a quick lunch in the financial district. Obviously at this time of day it’s very busy, but the service was attentive and friendly, and food came out
fairly quickly.

The menu is varied with something for all persuasions, including some good vegetarian and vegan offerings. My friend had a daily special vegetable bowl with farro and vegetables that she said was fabulous.

The only drawback to the restaurant was the noise level. At the height of the lunch hour it was very difficult to converse. However, once the lunch crowd cleared out it was pleasant to sit and converse. Overall, a positive experience. Recommended.

Stopped in after the theater for dinner during the week. Nice space; not too noisy as the after work cocktail crowd was at the outside bar. Server stopped by promply and took our drink order. Had the octopus appetizer and then the pork chop and walleye for entre's. All of the food was exceptional. Would definetely go back.

Nice restaurant and good food. Ordered a salad with salmon, but the salmon was the smallest piece I have ever seen when ordering from a restaurant...and I enjoy salmon often. Would have spoken up, but I did not want to cause a distraction from the table conversation. The food tasted good, salmon was cooked perfectly, but the salad I had was not filling enough for me. Service was slower than I expected, but the service people were nice. If they were not so slow, I would have had time for dessert and coffee/drinks. Convenient location and easy to locate. I enjoyed the decor.

This was my second visit to Stock and Ledger. I enjoyed it much more the first time. The menu is unremarkable. Baked Brie appetizer was overly salty. My scallop entree served over spaghetti squash was excellent. Caesar salad and Brussels sprout side were OK, nothing special. Mac and cheese was smoky flavorful. So, overall, good, not great.

This might be better for a pre-theater outing or business lunch. We came for a birthday, and though they brought a surprise treat, it wasn't the right vibe for that on a weekday night. All our entrees were very good but overpriced. Dinner for 3 with no beverages, appetizers or sides was $88. The service was tremendous, and all who worked there seemed to be very on top of making sure all was well. It wasn't very busy. I have been here before for a work lunch with a group of 6 and that was a better experience as the place was livelier and lunch options were more casual and a better value.

Stock & Ledger Kitchen was a great place to stop quick before a show. Our server was great and made sure we made it out in time out to catch the musical we were about to see. The food was very good - my two favorites were the burrata and the brussel sprouts. We also had the strawberry rhubarb crisp which was amazing. Would definitely recommend for a quick bite!
