I had a reservation for Saturday for my birthday party never received any notifications that they were closed SMH very disappointed
The food was outstanding, from the beef tartare and the cauliflower fritters, to the diver scallops and the duck confit cassoulet. The flavors worked well together and there was a great deal of care put into each of our dishes.
Service was top-notch. We never waited long for anything, and every person with whom we spoke was friendly, inviting, and made us feel comfortable.
Lastly, were the cocktails. My wife's favorite is a pisco sour and it did not disappoint. We would recommend this spot for a fun night out, or a romantic dinner for a special occasion. We were there for our anniversary and would go back again, without hesitation.
I took my wife out for her birthday dinner. They treated us so well; they had a nice cozy booth reserved for us and some really lovely extras. The pisco sour was very delicious as was the octopus and the main courses of the scallops and the tenderloin. The service was attentive but also did a good job of not being too intrusive. Thank you for making this evening so wonderful.
A really nice place in wicker park. The staff and food are just superb. One of the best places in the neighborhood. I am definitely coming back
We've been there before and liked it. We brought friends this time. They liked it.
The place is cool with the bank vault right there with you. The food is imaginative and new. Once they got the right order, the drinks were good. The wine list is short and efficient.
Early, the place has moderate sound levels. As the evening goes on, the DJ starts playing quietly, but it gets louder as the evening goes on. It looked like they were clearing the room for dancing.
You could share appetizers. They were the best! They were an improved twist on some comfort food classics.
Limited menu, but good choices. Unique atmosphere. All parties at our table enjoyed their meal. A bit noisy if serious conversation is your goal.
Food, especially gnocchi was delicious. Interesting choice of craft cocktails. Swanky setting.
Went to dinner before the theatre and was running late. They were very nice about it our tardiness and it was appreciated. We were able to order quick and our food came out in a timely manner. I had the baked chicken and it was very moist and tender. My wine was very good. The manager and our waitress checked on us which was very nice. If I had more time I would have ordered more food and wine. I would definitely go back when I have more time. Trendy hot spot.
Very cool place with great ambience. Just went for drinks which were very good. A little pricey but a good date spot
Plates are very small; even smaller conpared to "small plates" restaurants. The staff lacks prioritizing tasks; more focused on grabbing towels then bringing the check to the customers. Not worth your time. It was a huge disappointment, I mean it was traumatizing. You will leave the place hungry, that's what the bedford guarantees!
Came here after being recommended by a couple friends. It's a great date spot, perfect lighting, great music, great drinks, awesome service and overall an amazing experience.
A wonderful experience. Great atmosphere, service and food. Would definitely go back again!
Great menu. Did the special Wednesday prix fixe menu and it was fantastic in terms of taste and price. Delicious flat iron steak cooked perfectly. The mussels in broth were to die for. Good oysters too. Service was perfect. Highly recommended.
Beautiful restaurant with wonderful foods. Not a large menu but there is something for everyone. The appetizers are especially good. The atmosphere is lovely, cozy and warm.
Cocktails $14 a piece!
Food very rich and expensive! Everything I ate tasted strange and I actually got very sick afterwards.
Pluses were excellent service and great ambiance.
Will not be back and will not recommend.
This is a great location, like most other restaurants I go for a social evening out to talk with friends and end up fighting with the in house music system! What is it with all these restaurants that they think I want to shout at the top of my voice all night. I don't want to listen to your bloody music!
Beautiful restaurant with an upscale but relaxed atmosphere. Service was excellent, food was delicious... overall just a wonderful experience.
Great meal in terms of taste, but plates are small!
I have been to the Bedford multiple times and this place never disappoints. We had the steak tartare, mushroom and octopus appetizers which were all delicious. Great drinks and ambiance, too. It was a cold February night and the fireplaces were perfect.
Good drinks, good food, good atmosphere...But best part was DJ and music. Made the overall experience great!
We had the greatest server who was authentic and provided great conversation. The food was fantastic and drinks were on point.
Amazing Service !!
Must go place!
The ambience was fantastic! Too bad the food didn't mirror up. We started with the cauliflower app. which was essentially fried batter and not much cauliflower. Then for the main course, I had the duck, which was extremely salty (and I'm one to use plenty of salt) to the point where I almost sent it back. My girlfriend had the scallops which were pretty good but the three they provide were extremely undersized- app size. On a positive note, the drinks were fantastic.
Wonderful cocktails. Unbelievable food. Our favorite place.
The restaurant itself was great. Loved the decor and the service was exceptional. The food, although rather small portions, was very tasty.
Food was undersized and overpriced. Ambience and decor were classy. Hostess was very helpful setting up reservation and water server was both timely and consistent. Good option for a intimate engagement. Definitely would recommend even if my experience wasn't wholly pleasant.
The service was great and the ambiance was wonderful. I truly wanted the food to be enjoyable as well. Unfortunately both my sister and I had a hard time finishing our meal because it was overly salty. It was almost inedible. Luckily the service was so great that our water cup was always full.
Slight hiccup with dessert, but promt apology and fix by waitstaff and kitchen. Great place to grab a bite to eat and drinks. Good for small groups and big groups alike.
Went for Restaurant Week dinner with a friend-had never been there. Will definitely go back! The bar is great, awesome lounge in the old vault, food was delicious, service exceptional!
I had a wonderful time. The restaurant itself is an amazing place. The decor is really unique and has a timeless feel while also creating an old school feel.
Went here on a whim for restaurant week, very creative menu, a nice wine pairing and what a unique venue in an old bank vault! The dining area is separated strategically fromthe bar so talking was easy and we didn't have to tell over the music playing in the other room.
My husband and I went to The Bedford for Restaurant Week. We did the wine pairing with our meal for an extra $17 each, which was a good value. The portions were small but very filling. The only thing I didn't like was that I felt like I had to yell across the table to my husband. It was hard to hear. Other than that, great experience!
Food quality and amount is good, the vault is really unique and interesting for drinks and small bites.
Service is good.
Had a nice, impromptu dinner here after a musical. (Only reason we were able to do impromptu was because it was only 6pm.) Vault room is a fun place to sit and get a drink either before or after dinner. Although were early birds on this night, I imagine the vibe picks up quite a bit as the night goes on. Definitely recommend for both food and ambiance - and service was great.
Will definitely come again!
Food was excellent, service was awesome!
Food was fair. Service was slow.
The charcuterie tray was half edible. The Brussel sprouts tasted like they were cooked in an ashtray. The main courses were fine, but there are far too many better restaurants in the neighborhood. We will not be returning.
Food is incredible. Everything is delicious--appetizers, mixed drinks, entrees, desserts--yummy! Service was super attentive with one misstep-our waitress charged us for extra desserts which we did not order or receive. So check your receipt really carefully.
