Service was awful. Food was late and cold. Three hour dinner!!!
Fantastic first experience with Bellemore. Food, service and ambiance were all exceptional. Not inexpensive, but really a great value for a restaurant of this caliber
Fantastic service celebrating a birthday.
It was nice but not worth the cost. I did enjoy it but not enough to make an effort to go back.
Great ambiance and delicious food with a friendly staff. Chose it based on other reviews and it didn’t disappoint. Quiet enough to have conversations but still felt lively. The rigatoni and the halibut were amazing.
Just an amazing meal and experience. Service was ON POINT
A wonderful evening out, with good food, drinks and friends!!
Extraordinary service only matched by a culinary extravaganza. My taste buds danced as I sampled the menu and Sarah delighted us with her knowledge and care. Expensive but worth it!
Third time at the restaurant and it was the best. We had a 6pm reservation on a Sunday night so we were able to
Food was good but nor outstanding. Service was very good. Our server offered us a glass of dessert wine by donna fugata
Excellent service. Thoughtful gestures of sparkling wine and a card for our anniversary. We will be back.
We tried bellemore the night we had opera tickets and we had a limited time to eat and get to our seats. The waitress Kiwi ( like the fruit she said, that’s why I remember it!) was excellent and got our food out very quick. Food is exquisite, their play on cassoulet with foie gras sausage was divine, and veal tartare hitting all the rights notes! Service is impeccable. Why don’t they have a Michelin star yet?
Very nice place. Super friendly staff, and the food is great. Ill be going there often for sure.
Great service and food. My only complaint- The oyster is overrated.
Creative cooking and excellent service. Overall an outstanding dining experience.
The place is beautiful! The decor and ambiance is fantastic. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. It’s quite pricey but I think it was worth it.
Nice food - nothing super special but good.
Food was amazing, but the best part was a server Fernando. He made us feel so special and really went the extra mile to give us 5 star service!
From beginning to end everything was fantastic! This was our second time coming in to Bellemore, and it is my absolute favorite restaurant in Chicago. Not only is the food spectacular, but the service is outstanding as well. Highly recommend for a special night out.
LOVED THE RESTAURANT. FOOD DELICIOUS. BEST, HOWEVER, WERE THE DESSERTS...OVER THE TOP FAB.
Had a wonderful time at Bellemore! Our waiter (Fernando) made sure our evening was extra special. The food was amazing--possibly the best I've ever had--and the overall environment was relaxing and beautiful.
Just great from beginning to end. Beautiful setting. Service gracious, informative, attentive yet unobtrusive. Food delicious and well-portioned. A well-selected and good-value wine recommendation. A great choice for our 10th Anniversary. Highly recommended, and we will return when back in Chicago.
Wow. Each of the three courses was outstanding. Venison, octopus, and wagyu. Service was excellent. The client I was with added the restaurant to his short list. I will be back every time I visit our Chicago office.
Beautiful space with professional service. Pasta course was exceptional. Halibut and chicken were very good. Creme brûlée was delicious. My only complaint is the list of cognacs is very limited.
Everything was amazing. The only issue was that we had a 9pm reservation that we showed up for 10 minutes early for. Not only did we wait for over 30 minutes before our table was ready, but an other party of 2 that had a 9pm reservation of whom showed up 5 minutes late for was almost immediately seated upon entry before us.
I completely understand the encouragement of customers to enjoy their time while dining, but if making a reservation is expected for the promise of being seated, the staff needs to do a better job to ensure that everyone who has a reservation time is seated in a timely manner. Otherwise, there is no point of a reservation system.
Food was amazing just like the last time! Would still go back again!
I have to say the service was wonderful, our server was a lovely woman who was informative and attentive without being overbearing or intrusive which is impressive. When it came to the food I must admit I was very disappointed. We were there for my birthday after hearing nothing but wonderful reviews and the food did not live up to the expectation. The standout item of the evening was the Venison Tartare which was quite delicious. The halibut hardly had any flavor and seemed as though it had not been seasoned at all. The short ribs were incredibly dense and quite dry and lacked the qualities I have come to expect in short ribs. I was so looking forward to this meal and I left feeling quite let down.
Wonderful dinner and the ambiance + service were tremendous. We will definitely be coming back!
Loved the halibu with black rice !
I heard small plates and overpriced... not our experience. One of the best new restaurants in Chicago. I’ll be back very soon...
My friend came into the city just to dine at this restaurant and we were not disappointed! Everything was amazing.
Bellemore is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed dinner and drink (or two) with the perfect ambiance. Everything was delicious, and the service was great. Highly would recommend the short rib -- it melts right in your mouth!
Outstanding gourmet food. This chef really knows what he’s doing! Had the tasting menu which was a nice selection and we were very satisfied at the end.
We came here for my wife’s birthday and couldn’t be happier for our choice. Our server Steven was always available to answer our questions beyond the dishes served. The tables were reasonably apart that we couldn’t hear conversations from tables around us.
I decided to try a new restaurant on a Friday night. I like the location and the restaurant design. Drinks, deserts and service were to perfection! The food needs some touch. Beet had too much marinate in it. And crab pasta was too salty.
Underrated. Easy blend of formal dress and informal service. Shared plates, a snap. Sparkling water option very thoughtful, refills generous. Nice, big, bright room. Right music, right demographic, right volume. Food excellent. Kudos!
It was fantastic! we loved the venison appetizer and also the lobster appetizer. Also the arctic char was outstanding! I really liked the whiskey sour cocktail and the white wine and after dinner whiskey was also great. We will definitely be back
Some of the best food in Chicago and a warm atmosphere with exceptional service!
Bellemore is my go to business lunch place in the West Loop, because the food (sweet potato tots, carrot toast, kona kanpachi, fire-bird chicken sandwich, short rib rigatoni, and mussels) and service are excellent, and you can actually have a conversation there.
Great place for lunch in a elegant but sheek atmosphere
I would order the muscles and salad again. I’m sure other items are good as well
