Went to celebrate a birthday. Menu was well explained by the staff, and they were so courteous to us! Enjoyed all we ordered, across multiple sections of the menu. They even surprised us with cake and champagne for the birthday boy. Thanks to Bellemore for a lovely night out

What a neighbor gem, way under rated. Our dinner was excellent from appetizer to dessert. The creativity behind the culinary talent is very impressive and every dishes are done with a great focus on details. I will recommend the pork 3 ways with amazing pork belly and a out of this world foie gras sausage. The best part is the finish with desserts, what a talented pastry team.
We will definitely promote Bellemore and will come back. Thank you for such a great evening.

Amazing food and ambiance, the staff was super friendly and eager to give you their recommendations. We went for a NYE dinner with another couple and we both left super satisfied, the drinks are also on point!

Highly recommend for a romantic date and or couples dinner- just be aware that it is pricey, but well worth it.

First time at this restaurant. Based on other reviews was looking forward to trying out what I thought would be a great meal/experience. But, what I had/experienced was just very average. It was not bad nor great - Just ok. That's not what I wanted. If I wanted an ok restaurant I'd go to a chain. I was hoping for something more but not the case.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed out evening at Bellemore. The food was delicious and prepared perfectly. My wife and I both had fish dishes, (I had the Artic Char) and both were excellent. Our sever, Kiwi, was very professional. This was our first time at Bellemore but we will definitely be coming back for more. The restaurant is not noisy and allowed for a nice, quiet conversation. Great ambiance also. We loved it!

One of the best dinners I've had since moving to chicago. Came off the recommendation of my friend cyndie. Ordered everything she advised and more and it was wonderful. You could tell how much the front and back of house worked for a terrific dinner service. If I could go back in time to experience it all again fresh I absolutely would. I'd also like to thank my server and the chef, alex, for coming out so I could thank them for an amazing time. Please keep up the great work!

I love this place for lunch, especially a birthday lunch. The salads are great. I love the ambiance and the dark navy and pink color scheme. If it's your birthday, they bring you the cutest and yummiest little piece of triple layer chocolate cake with a candle. So cute and so good! I love going here for lunch!

The food was innovative and exquisitely prepared. I especially appreciated the relaxed and knowledgeable rapport of our server, Kiwi. The most impressive note however, was the staff accommodating us when a member of our party was an hour late. We were apologetic and the response was, “No problem, the table is yours for the night.” We’ll definitely be taking all our friends to Bellemore!

Just didn't cut it.

I am a huge fan of the group that owns Bellemore, Boka is hands down one of my favorite restaurants but Bellemore just doesn't have the wow factor.

When you first walk in the decor is fantastic. The service is also amazing, however, the food just doesn't cut it. We ordered almost $250 worth of food and only the spaghetti with truffle was amazing.
The Hawaiian bread was good but nothing special. The parmesan dumplings lacked a richness they deserved. The brussel sprout toast was a bit too salty. The shrimp and scallop dumpling was good but I was not blown away by the flavor or sauce. The steak was tender but also missed the wow factor.
My favorite dish was the pasta which was perfectly prepared.

It's an expensive restaurant and I think we gave it a fair chance but they really need to step up the game. I wouldn't return when there are other better options like Two and Boka delivering that wow your looking for.

The food was delicious, the server's recommendations were helpful and on point. Food came out quickly, plates were cleared quickly, water glass was always full, server checked on us frequently without doing so too often. Ambiance was amazing, the entire staff was welcoming. Can't wait to come back.

The service was excellent. We really appreciated the recommendations made by our server. The food was exquisite! The oyster pie was to die for! The Arctic Chair and Wagyu Strip were perfectly made. We will definitely come back and recommend to friends. And a great place to spend a birthday! Thank you for the toast and dessert!

We chose the Bellemore to celebrate our wedding anniversary and couldn't have been more pleased. We were welcomed with champagne and that was just the beginning. Every course was delicious! I highly recommend starting with the Oyster Pie, the Broccoli Salad and for the main course, the Butter Poached Shrimp and Scallop Dumpling was amazing! Many thanks to the staff and servers for making us feel so special!
