They didn’t have our table ready when we arrived for our reservation. Waited maybe 5-10 minutes, which was during a lunch interview. I made a reservation so I wouldn’t have to wait for a table. The table we received was right by the front door, and the table itself was not adequate for 3 people (too small) and appeared to be broken. I will not be going back, despite working very close by.
Waitress forgot a large entree we ordered (catfish). 30 minutes after 2nd dish asked us if we wanted dessert. Had to remind her of our order. Catfish was my least favorite dish.
They brought the salad appetizers and main dishes all that same time. When I mentioned to the waitress she laughed about it. I had to ask them to take back the steak and salmon because it wouldnt fit. One app we ordered didnt come though I asked about it. The food wasnt very good either. Horrible valentines day experience
LOVEEEE this restaurant. The vibe is casual, yet upscale. The food and cocktails were superb. This is my favorite restaurant inn Chicago, hands down.
The after work crowd in the back room was a little loud but they were just having fun. It would be nice to see half of the TV screens with fireplace video when no one is watch the games.
Unfortunately they ran out of the beer I ordered after 1/2 glass then didn’t have my next two requests from the beer list.
Food was prepared to perfection!
The staff was pleasant and helpful.
Overall we enjoyed the experience and plan to return.
As always perfect 10
Our first visit. Loved it. Beautiful space. Service and food were very good. We will be back very soon.
Always love my experience here!!!
Great lunch spot walking distance from the office. Food was great and they were very accommodating to our group.
Went here for a quick lunch. The food was delicious. It was a chilly day, so I suspect it was slower than usual and much more quiet than usual. Overall, this was a wonderful choice and will certainly go back.
Great food! I had creole shrimp great dish but they need to at least give 3 pieces of shrimp instead of 2
A lovely restaurant. Exquisite food. Relaxed atmosphere. Great for conversations.
Great food. Great ambiance. They even had a wonderful selection of teas. I went for lunch but can’t wait to go back for happy hour so I can try their cocktails.
Great menu, interesting space!
My date and thoroughly enjoyed our experience there!
Social events at the restaurant are a great addition.
The decor is fabulous and the live entertainment was out of this world!
Such a hidden gem! The ambiance is great, the staff is friendly, and the food is priced great!
Great little place with a short menu but delicious food. I like the decoration.
This is not our first visit to Taste 222. We have enjoyed each visit. Will definitely return.
Great spot for business lunch. This is my 3rd time visiting Taste 222 and it has wonderful vegetarian options.
Nice warm atmosphere, casual but sophisticated. Attentive service, good drinks, excellent food. My wife and I really enjoyed a mid week dinner out and will definitely return.
I heard such great things about dinner I had to try this place. The food was good except I specifically asked for something to be omitted and it wasn’t. It wasn’t a huge deal but the server seemed very busy and I didn’t have time to wait for another dish to be prepared.
I ordered fish tacos to go and only 1 has sauce on it.
I’m giving this feedback in hopes that it would help improve because I want to see it stay in the area.
What a welcoming place! The ambiance is totally Chicago. Iron paned windows. Intimate dining. Feels a bit like you’re in someone’s library. Open view of the kitchen. Food and beverages are delicious. Waitstaff is attentive without fuss. Love this place. I will return.
Great spot for some delicious cuisine. Small plates are wonderful. Great cocktails and service. Try the ribs and lamb chops. Everything we ordered was delicious.
Perfect service. Great food and comfortable, cool atmosphere.
Great atmosphere and great staff!!!
Ate here yesterday for lunch. First experience with this restaurant which is 2 blocks from where I live. Wonder why it took me so long to drop in? Food was great. Prices were more than reasonable. Have since booked two more reservations and recommended it to my husband who intends to go there,too.
We tried the fried chicken sandwich and shrimp and grits. Both were outstanding. Our waiter, Hank did a nice job. The ambiance is lovely at Taste 222. We have been there twice, and would highly recommend.
