We went for afternoon tea. The service was extremely slow. During that time (about 1 1/2 hours) we had THREE waiters and all of them were slow. They were also very skim with the tea sandwiches.
Great cocktails, beautiful setting. Went for brunch and food was good too.
May be my expectations were too high after reading all the great reviews, but I was so disappointed in this place. Food is below average
Worst service, terrible food. All around miserable experience. Second straight time this happened here. I’ll never go here again. So many better places in the West Loop.
It’s was amazing but I will say service not too great..
Terrible experience. We were served inedible food and the service was horrendous. I will never be back.
The ambiance was great! Very cute and trendy. Our waiter Brian was so nice and helpful. Our food was just ok but we had great wine.
Super chic! So clean. Great drink and food options!
Beautiful ambiance. Unfortunately, the waiter was extremely inattentive.
Gorgeous space, good food, great service. Afternoon tea is a must! We went for restaurant week & were not disappointed. Will definitely be back!
I liked it a lot. good food, service, ambience, flexibility,etc.
Excellence at its best!!! Thank you and yes I will return
Celebrated my husband’s birthday with daughter and son-in-law over brunch this past Sunday. It was our first time at The Allis. We had a fabulous experience from the ambiance ,service to the food. I ordered tea and commented on the beautiful teapot that my water came in . Our waitress mentioned they have tea time daily from 2-4pm. As we were leaving our brunch we saw many people having tea with delicious looking baked goods. We’ll definitely be back for that!
Amazing brunch in a gorgeous setting! Went with girlfriends and everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered (avo toast and breakfast wrap were standouts...also the breakfast potatoes were delish!). The ambience is just perfect and I would highly recommend for both brunch and afternoon tea!
Food is way overpriced. Salad is nothing but leaves with vinaigrette. I would not recommend for dinner.
We went for restaurant week and, even though the place was pretty slow, our food seemed like it had been sitting under the heat lamp for awhile. They definitely needed more wait staff on. But the half off bottle of wine on Tuesday’s was great!
Love the vibe and ambiance. We chose their restaurant week menu, which was outstanding with the exception of the pork belly, which was entirely too fatty. The octopus salad and bronzino were phenomenal!! Service was very good, although there was a change in servers just as dessert was served and we waited over 10 minutes for our coffee. Overall fabulous. Would love to go back again.
Food was good though a bit overpriced. Service was really lacking.
The warm octopus salad had a very heave sauce that overpowered all of the ingredients. We couldn't finish it. The rest of the food was okay, but generally too salty for our taste. The mixed drink menu was all of eight items with no other list. If you knew what you wanted they could make that though.
The volume of the music made it incredibly hard to have a conversation without feeling like we were yelling at eat other. This was upstairs in the restaurant area; the lower lounge area was actually pretty good. In hindsight we should have just gotten a sofa and relaxed down there.
The most redeeming part of the experience was our waiter. He was on top of his game, and kept our water (which we drank a lot of) topped off and checked in just enough to not be overbearing. That's the only reason this place gets two stars.
A casual lunch out with my wife we were in the area and had never been here before. The atmosphere was nice, the server was good and the food was very good!
Went for high tea. Ambiance and teas are amazing, but that was it. Service was slow and they seemed annoyed. We had to ask where our tea tier of food was and waitress apologized for that not being put in her order. The food was sub par. I was disappointed in the food and experience. Would not return for high tea maybe just drinks at the bar because hopefully they can’t mess that up.
Wondering if there is a new chef. Menu changed to all a la carte and my favorite halloumi and charred cauliflower was very mediocre.
An immense amount of salt in the food.
We really enjoyed our first time at The Allis and will be back! The banana bread was great and we all loved the brunch dishes we ordered. The Egg’s Benedict Royale was one of the best salmon benedicts I’ve had. The only issue was our server wasn’t very attentive and we sometimes had to ask for something (coffee, bottle of sparkling wine) twice. However the server who took over for him was really great! Definitely recommend going here!
Loved the atmosphere and set-up of the space! I had the avocado toast which was great with the added spice to take the flavor up a notch! Also, they had oat milk as a substitute for coffee which I appreciated!
The Allis is a dreamy restaurant with a great quality of food, nice ambiance and location. Love my experience as a whole.
Overall a good experience, but had to send two of the four things we ordered back cause they weren’t good. But they took them off our bill without us even asking.
My bestie and I went for brunch. Always great options for whatever you might craving.
Afternoon Tea, great atmosphere, delicious food, totally fun afternoon! Can’t wait to be back in Chicago for another trip to Allis. We saw regular food items being delivered to other tables, those looked great too!
The atmosphere was great. The food and tea were excellent. The service was also great. I would say if you
are looking for quiet ambiance this might not be good for you. It was a bit loud.
I love The Allis for its ambiance & delicious yet overpriced cocktails. The food has never been great & I’ve been going since they opened. Most recently, I brought my niece in for late lunch and we had burgers that were so salty, they were difficult to eat. Tepid fries with a sauce which was meant to be an Aioli but was all vinegar. The staff always seem overly aloof, but this visit, we had 3 different servers, all unfriendly or unhappy or just kind of rude. Essentially I’ll keep coming back for the beautiful room & cocktails, but will never waste money on their food again, and with all the new options in the West Loop, they might want to step up their game.
Always a great meal with fresh ingredients & beautifully presented in a great setting !!!
Our waiter was amazing!!!
Afternoon holiday tea
Service was very slow, food was consistent and ambiance is always nice! I recommend ensuring that tea cups are throughly washed as they had very evident tea stains on the inside, which can and should be fixed. Thank you!
I love here, so cozy.
And food was good quality.
Very beautiful place with okay food but poor service. We had to wait for our coffee about 30 minutes and for our food even longer.
Afternoon tea with my mom visiting from Canada over the Christmas holidays. Though I made the mistake of booking a 1:45pm reservation (tea service is from 2-4pm on weekends), the Allis graciously accommodated us.
Service was uninspired/spotty and while the snacks served with tea were fresh and decadent, it was weighted heavily on the sweet side (too much so we concluded). Tea service itself was lovely but even getting more hot water was difficult so we gave up and got our bill.
Disappointing because it’s a fun spot with a good ambiance and perhaps better for brunch but on this day, we left wishing we had gone somewhere else for the occasion.
My niece was in town for the holiday weekend. She had never had the experience of afternoon tea and it was great! Really enjoyed the ambiance, food and tea. I would recommend this place fir afternoon tea and will be back to try dinner the next time!
On a family getaway to Chicago and taking my daughter to her first High Tea. The Allis was so beautiful, we loved enjoying all the beautiful decor and style. The tea was wonderful and the food was plentiful! We had leftovers. Everything was wonderful!
