Loved finding this gem so close to the train station. The decor was great, spacious, so easy to hear. Lots to choose from on menu and great service. Great wines. I will be back.
Delicious meal and very attentive and engaging service.
Great menu, cozy interior & convenient location.
Excellent food....taste absolutely fabulous! Enough TVs and comfort to watch the game!
Our server was outstanding...that young man made us feel right at home.
Service was top notch (thanks Dan), food great and decor stunning. Music and lighting set a relaxing tone. Loved it. Highly recommend! Scallops appetizer was delish as was the Mac n cheese.
Great place to meet friends! Great food & atmosphere!
Took clients here and they really enjoyed the lunch offerings!
Food not good. I am usually happy there, but the brisket was cold, and not as described
The food and service was very good, tables are a decent distance away from each other but the acoustics leave a bit to be desired as the background noise level is pretty high - you can still hear your dining companions, it is just a bit distracting.
Hi, I'm sorry to hear the acoustics were distracting. We have taken this into consideration and will be more mindful of the music moving forward. All feedback helps us strengthen service and our offering, so we thank you. Please say hi next time you're in to visit. Best, Iman Dean
Awesome place, great food, drinks, and ambiance

The ambiance is amazing! The food was great. Service was ok, I wasn’t to fond of my server. I would go again.
Great food and service was great and the service staff were super nice

I’d like to give a special thanks to Yuchi our server and tour guide. He was the BOMB😊

This was my first visit to Taste 222, and everything about it was outstanding!
Lunch service should be considerate of one hour lunch breaks.
Staff was friendly and attentive. Knew when to approach and when to leave guests alone. Food was excellent.
GwendolynO, thank you! we are so happy you had a great time and look forward to your next visit.
Love this place, great service and food.

Rasheed took care of us again! He is a great ambassador of your restaurant
@PaulH THANK YOU for the 5-star rating! We look forward to your next visit... Best, Iman Dean - General Manager
Very good brunch. Only area of improvement I would suggest is to lower the amount of salt on the breakfast potatoes. Other than that, the French toast was great, drinks were fantastic. The service by far was outstanding! We will be back!
Greeting @TremayneM and THANK YOU for taking the time to review us! We have since shared your feedback with the executive chef and will certainly reduce the salt on our potatoes. Again, thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon! Best, Iman Dean - General Manager
The food and drinks are excellent. Everything is also reasonably priced especially for a downtown Chicago location. I've been once for dinner and twice recently for brunch. The chicken biscuit, cheese grits and the Nashville hot chicken and waffles were all very good. Sangrias and mimosas are a great brunch compliment. Great value. I highly recommend and have done so to several friends
Greetings DanaO, THANK YOU for your feedback and support in spreading the word. We want Taste 222 to be everyone's "home away from home". We look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Best, Iman Dean - General Manager
Excellent service, great food and stylish decor...what more can you ask for !!!
Greetings, and THANK YOU for the 5-star rating! Taste 222 is "your home, away from home" and we look forward to your next visit... Best, Iman Dean - General Manager
Delicious and very reasonably priced for a nice lunch near the loop. Tri tip steak was amazing!
Greetings @DebbieJ and THANK YOU for the 5-star rating! The Tri tip is one of my favorites as well. Look forward to welcoming you back soon! Best, Iman Dean - General Manager
The food was great! The server was really nice and attentive. The ambiance was really nice as well. Hopefully, the menu options will expand.
Great. Underutilized. Delicious every time. Take my money.
Ambiance and presentation was exceptional! Our waitress was also very nice. The coffee was amazing. However:
- Our frittatas were bland. It had zero salt added to the dish. Yet, the potato side dish was over salted.
- The homemade donuts appear to he fried in the same oil they use for chicken (they tasted a bit like fried chicken batter).
- When we asked the waitress what she thought about certain dishes, her response was “I don’t know, I have never tried those.” Maybe management should require taste testings...
- The Eggs Benedict that we ordered is on the menu with a description that indicated it comes with poached eggs... the eggs were not poached - they were a texture similar to a scrambled omelet.
Maybe the awesome reviews are related to the dinner menu...
Great cocktails! Excellent waitress. Definitely will be back.
Birthday dinner on Thursday evening. Great space in back with large screens for an intimate gathering
The front dining area is cozy.
There is also an outdoor sitting area
Delicious food and enough variety for everyone to be happy. Impeccable service without being overbearing. Becoming one of my favorite "go to" places as everyone enjoys it.
Such a great experience from the ambiance to the staff to the food.
The entire staff seemed to be on drugs, but the food was ok. The main dining area had a strange smell, but the entire place is decorated beautifully.
Usually love the experience and introducing new people to it. Server was C- at best, and pork belly gyro was mediocre. That’s just taste preference I’m sure as it’s probably a great seller. Service frustratingly changed experience. I’ll still be back a lot though.
I have used tast222 several times in the past 3months for breakfast and each time I have received mediocre service at best. Ambiance is nice and the food is good, although not worth the $$ paid. With lots of options in the west loop, I’ll look elsewhere for my “go to” breakfast experience.
Great ambiance and the restaurant staff are superb!
The stuffed Amish thigh was soooo good, along with the Mac and cheese. Drinks were good, loved the cocktail flight and red wine choice at happy hour. It was a perfect place for an early dinner before a show.
It was a first date ....place was empty
Server wanted to go home and rushed
The two appetizers were good drinks were good
Just empty for 830 on a Friday ....with poor service
We live across the street and love this place. It’s a hidden gem with really surprisingly tasty food. Super convenient for us! Totally worth a trip. A super cool spot for a date. Instagrammable AF. Don’t miss the pear with Brie. Sometimes the service a little slow but the food and ambience totally make up for it. Great lounge spot in the back to hang out. we will keep going back!
A really good restaurant where you can have dinner with friends and actually have a conversation that everyone at the table can hear. That alone would make it worth going to but the food and knowledgeable staff are the real stars.
Didn’t like food or drinks. Sent back first drinks. Second was not much better. Appetizers weren’t great. Ate dinner at another restaurant
This was our second time at Taste222 and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was on-point, and we love the ambiance. We’re just sad it took us this long to find this spot (it is a 5-minute walk from our home). We will be back often!
