This is one of the best views in Chicago in a beautiful terrace. Service was attentive and prices are really affordable. Many people dont even try it because it assumes its expensive or fully booked and its none. One of the best brunch experiences in Chicago for sure.

I truly believe this could be the worst upscale restaurant in Chicago. First, the food. Ordered ribeye, medium. It came well-done. Sent it back. Mgr came and told us the cook told him it was cooked medium and we didn't know what medium is, and as a favor he was gonna send us a medium rare steak instead. Super disrespectful. We told him he can keep the steak for himself! and asked him to charge for the previous one and not bother. He was ok with that. Not to mention it took them 10 mins to locate the reservation...
There are so many great restaurants in Chicago. If you want to have good dinner with friends, save yourself the trouble and go book another restaurant. Just any other restaurant. Really!

Been here several times and the service us usually very friendly. Nothing was wrong this time but it was just so so. My medium steak was well done and that sucked. It seemed like it was a good cut, but the overcooking it was the issue. It was not just a little overcooked it was way way over cooked. For the price, really for any price, this should not happen.

It's great to go there to people watch. everyone puts on their best.
It's loud, but you'll be fine.

The location is great, amazing views, good drinks, but the food could really use some flavor. The steak was basically boil instead grilled or pan seared, and the salmon was flavor less. They should hire Gordan Ramsey to be featured on kitchen nightmares to be give a whole overhaul.

I had high hopes for this place due to the beautiful structure and reputation. However, the food was pretty bland and did not live up to its standards at all. For the price, you expect the best service and food but that was unfortunately not the case. The $18 drink glasses came sticky and my French 75 was not very cold. The chicken tasted like it was from a high school cafeteria. Me and a couple friends who were with me were all unsatisfied with the whole experience. The only good thing was the view and the hostess.

Service was awful, the table was not ready when check in and I was told to wait and they will let me know, after 20 mint I had to check again and they had like 3 tables ready. The waitress took forever to take the order and disappeared several times. The food was highly overpriced, extremely expensive to eat the same food you can have at home, it was nothing special about it, the burrata was just the two or three slices of bread with a regular prosciutto probably for the supermarket and regular burrata with no other ads or specials flavors to make it a 20 something dollar plate, also the filet mignon and the burger were average and we ended paying almost 300 dollar. Really disappointed, I would not visit it again. The only positive thing was the view

Food was great. Service and bill left something to be desired. Service - was slow and notes were not taken/asked for while taking order. Menu item that requires clarity on choice of meats and spreads was not clarified and order did not come out with full variety of foods listed. Bill - 20% gratuity was automatically billed (for a party of two?!) and bill initially included a separate charge for something that was part of the entree ordered and was to be included in entree pricing.

Will visit again, but hopeful better service is experienced next time (and we’re made aware of automatic gratuity for a party of two).
