My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. Our server brought out complementary Prosecco and cake at the end. We had a delicious meal. Highly recommend!

We went early on a Friday, and enjoyed the pace, the service and the tastes! Lovely and would go again in a heartbeat.

Outstanding. Bellemore makes you feel VERY special. We were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived we were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne. We got a card signed by the whole staff and a lovely complimentary dessert. The meal was delicious especially the pasta with truffles and the Arctic Char. Thank you Sarah for taking such good care of us.

Excellent food, great service and love that the tables are set at a perfect distance from each other and the decor is stunning, modern and sleek. This was my second time dining here and again they did not disappoint . Had several dishes that were very flavorful and when I asked about soup that I did not see in the menu the waiter said no problem and brought me soup that they serve on the lunch menu- even though we were there for dinner.
Had a wonderful dinner there. Really like the low noise level and the tables set apart from each other..... I am not even aware of the other dinners when I have been there and enjoy that very much. Able to actually talk to and enjoy the people I came to dine with !!
Highly recommend this restaurant. It has become one of my favorite Chicago places to dine.

Although service was fast, food quality and flavor was not exceptional. Had to return one plate as broth of us liked it at all. Better options in the area. Cost for two with 2 apps, 2 entrees, 2 rounds of drinks + tip = $200.

We had the prix fixe lunch, and the food was delicious, service was fantastic, and the presentation was excellent. Most impressive, though, was the value for the $24 prix fixe cost. I've had a sandwich and salad at many Loop, West Loop, and River North restaurants that cost more, and the food quality and presentation wasn't half as good at those places.

Fabulous pre-fixed menu - and each dish was better than the next. Perfect spot for a business meeting. Not too noisy, close to Ogilvie, with a ton of natural daylight. Every bite was fantastic. Pricing was spot on! A not to miss!

Sophisticated place for a date or business lunch. Food was creative, but somewhat expensive on a relative basis. Service was attentive and diligent.

Service was great but felt menu selection was quite limited and general taste / quality of food below average. We came to celebrate a special occasion but we all left hungry and not really satisfied. We were disappointed.

First off, The decor is lovely. The food was delicious. Don’t bother with you oyster pie. There wasn’t an oyster in sight and it was microscopic in size. But the rest of the dishes were yummy.

The bartender, a young guy, needs some training on how to treat women who come in by themselves waiting for a friend. I felt invisible and ignored while he chatted with the younger women next to me.

The wine list is lovely. Highly recommend the Laurent Cognard 1st cru for Chardonnay. Amazing. Rest of service was highly competent but impersonal. Will give it a secon try.

Excellent service. Wonderful ambiance. Cute decor. Knowledgeable staff. Outstanding food. Simple yet great wine list. Didn't try and upsell us when we asked for reccommendations. We are both in the industry. Only dissappointed I had was that we didn't visit sooner. Cheers Bellemore!

Ambiance and service is amazing! Food was ok, definitely on the better side of things in Chicago but wasn’t blow us out of the water. Chicken and chitarra are must haves!

Brought a prospective employee there for a lunch during an interview. He is a vegetarian. Found out that the lunch menu really didn't have anything for him but a garden salad. Need to be more mindful of that. Also, service wasn't very good.

FOOD was phenomenal, very distinct and composed flavors. I was there for a meet up with a friend and he raved uncontrollably about each course. Best meal of 2019 for me.

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?
