A few notches above a gastro-pub with a sports bar twist. Great place!9
The cuisine is outstanding. Great options for vegetarians. We went for brunch the first Sunday they were open for brunch and they were a little understaffed. It’s okay - who’s in a hurry on a Sunday?! I’m sure they will adjust that going forward. The coffee has great flavor and they were playing a nice mix of music - great local vibe. Definitely going back! The owners greeted all the guests which is a nice touch. Makes you feel appreciated!
Howard was awesome. Really enthusiastic and enjoyed his work.
Jerk pork chop was delish! It was a special so may not be around forever but it was definitely a winner!
Wonderful ambiance and food. I highly recommend for those two qualities alone.
The new lunch menu is fantastic! The spice roasted pork belly gyro is awesome!
We went after work not many choices for appetizers and the meat a d cheese tray had more meat than cheese overpriced for what.we got
Enteresting setting and menu options, enjoyed the blackened salmon recommendation of waitress.
Fabulous delicious food. Beautiful intimate atmosphere. Best of all, service just amazing.
Food was good, ambiance was cute but more romantic than seemed appropriate for the area. service was very slow.
Excellent dining experience
We came on Fat Tuesday so a busy night was expected. The manager Iman was super accommodating; will be back next time I’m in Chicago to taste new menu
Wonderful as always! A nice way to spend Fat Tuesday! I’d love to see more dinner/music events there.
Great atmosphere and food for business or friends. Range of appetizers is very attractive if you desire lighter fare.
Ambiance is great and conducive meeting a friend or colleague for lunch.
Charming, cozy and comfortable neighborhood establishment with excellent food, (try the shrimp toast), service and a tremendous bang for your buck. If I lived west of the Chicago River I’d be there 2 or 3 times a week.
Small but sweet and charming. Lovely interior. They had a delicious vegetarian dish that was unique. There can be a lot of redundancy for vegetarians at restaurants so it was nice to have something different and delicious. Went on a Monday evening and it was very quiet. I think they have music on Tuesday evenings in a separate room so may be livelier.
Great place for an after work gathering downtown, centrally located for events and special occasions. The food was delicious, portions were shareable and the Happy Hour menu offered great selections as well.
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!
The decor is fabulous and the live entertainment was out of this world!
Social events at the restaurant are a great addition.
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.
