Great food and atmosphere
My husband said his chicken was really good--especially moist. The service was great. Tables were very separated and nice high ceilings. Hopefully, we can open the insides of restaurants again soon and this would be a good choice for dining.
One of the few restaurants that are taking covid seriously. The place is clean, welcoming, and overall a nice atmosphere. I loved the food and our server was nice. Will def come back!
Had the hamachi tartare and radiatore pasta - both delicious!
When Bellemore first opened, I thought it was the best meal I had had that year. I dine out quite a bit, and almost every dish (and we ordered just about everything) was really good! I have not participated in a lot of COVID patio dining, but I have to say that this was one of the best meals that I have tasted. Many restaurants have simplified their menu as well complexity of the dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed the Hawaiian Rolls, Seared Scallops, Pork Collar, Grilled Carrots, Garlic Fries, and Raditore Pasta. We enjoyed other dishes but the Scallops, Pork and Pasta were outstanding. I also really appreciated the service...the manager that night was more than accommodating to our needs to dine outside despite the 40 degree temps. She kept us as comfortable as possible and was just wonderful on the phone and in person.
We live in the neighborhood and had a fantastic experience at Happy Hour! Servers helped by having a great mask protocol to ensure a fun and safe experience. We will be back and can’t wait to experience dinner.
I have never been here before this time and we went here for my friend's birthday and the service was absolutely impeccable! They even wrote a sweet birthday card for my friend. It was a very unique and wonderful touch. The precautions that the restaurant took for this time was also very much appreciated and part of the reason we chose this restaurant to go to. The decor is also amazing so there were many fun Insta moments! I will definitely be back to support and show off for other wonderful small gatherings.
Lovely, we could not have had a better meal and service it was a great evening.
Wonderful ambiance and food! Service was outstanding.
We had a great experience at Bellemore! We felt very safe with the variety of Covid actions in place: temperature check, face masks, distancing, and barriers. We enjoyed the Hibiscus punch and old fashions to drink. The order of the garlic fries was great to share in our group of 6. Each of us ordered our own entrees and it was a good size of food. I really enjoyed the radiatore pasta and my husband liked the firebird. The ambiance was great and it could almost be a "regular" night out. The only reason for the 4 stars for service was due to my entree missing for 15 minutes while the rest of the party was served with no indication that it was coming or to ask our server where it was. Once it arrived, it was delicious! We were celebrating our anniversary and Bellemore made us feel special with the extra touches. We look forward to the next time we dine at Bellemore--definitely for happy hour and $1 oysters!
This was my first visit to Bellemore and I would definitely recommend it!
A very nice night. Charlie was great and Jimmy came over and spoke to us. Great food and a level of service above most.
Best oyster happy hour around! Beautiful restaurant with outstanding food.
Great adapation for Covid. Strongly recommend you visit
Took my hubby here for his birthday. It was was a great experience, the staff made us feel safe during these uncertain times. The ambience was beautiful, the food was incredible, the service was amazing. We will be back!
Great happy hour deals!
Sat outside with a heat lamp. It was nice!
The food here was fantastic. I especially recommend the Big Wis burger. Our server was Sarah, and even though it was a Saturday night, she was very attentive. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and was able to recommend items for us. I will absolutely be going back.
Thank You team Bellmore.
From the greeting at the front desk to the Bartender ( which he was our waiter as well during our dinner ) to the Kitchen staff with Cheff Jimmy , the whole team made our dinning experience unbelievable.
Thank You for the Congratulations Card that was given to us, that was a nice touch from you guys.
First time here and it was great. Nice food options and excellent service.
It was a great experience
We went for my wife’s 30th birthday dinner, and it was the best dining experience that we’ve had. We highly recommend everyone try this amazing restaurant!!! Chef Jimmy was great, and we will most certainly be returning!!
Go to Bellemore right now. The food has never been better; the service is attentive and professional. Charlie was our server. Two thumbs up. And in these pandemic, closed-down times, our favorite restaurants and the workers there need our support. The reason I gave only a middling review to ambiance is because we sat outside on the sidewalk where we watched three moving trucks across the street load and unload cargo. Sitting on Jefferson St, which is pretty busy, isn't a downer, btw. Please support Bellemore.
Great time for happy hour. Firebird sandwich is 🔥
Super cute place, great for date night. They did really
Great with the new Covid restrictions!
The food was delicious!! We got a few appetizers and each got something and shared. There wasn’t one bad thing that came out! Our server was amazing and we felt very safe re: covid.
Celebrated a birthday at Bellemore. They actually gave a card signed by all staff members and a piece of cake! They went above and beyond to make the birthday boy feel special! The service was fast, staff were professional and very friendly. The food was amazing!!! Such unique flavors and pairings. Great, romantic ambiance. We will definitely be back!
Outside-COVID 19-impacts our review
They went above and beyond for us to celebrate safely for our engagement date night! Thanks for making us feel so special with champagne and an appetizer! Xoxo
Everything we ordered exceeded expectations. It was delicious! And the service was excellent.
Lettuce wraps and happy hour snacks are amazing. One of my favorite restaurants in the city, taking all the necessary precautions at this time. Thank you.
Fantastic experience - we were celebrating our marriage with my parents (wedding cancelled due to COVID) and Bellemore made the dining experience so special. The food was excellent, service was the right amount of attentiveness and the tables were *actually* at least 6 ft apart. Great value for quality and quantity of food.
I looooove this place! It’s my new fav restaurant in Chicago. The food was amazing, drinks and bottles reasonably priced, service was great. The only negative was a man was soliciting people for money (we were eating outside), and management didn’t do anything. I think that should’ve been handled differently. Otherwise, I loved it and will be back.
Great al fresco happy hour. Oysters were fresh and wine was refreshing. Bib lettuce salad was the star.
Growing pains but great food. Service is all over the place and guy walking around can be annoying
Came for some happy hour oysters, but couldn’t leave without the shrimp lettuce wraps. Also had the tomato salad with some of the best focaccia ever. The Jerk chicken was also delicious with just the right amount of spice, and the sweetness of the coconut rice and crunch of the cabbage balanced the dish. Thank you for an amazing evening.
Our meal was delicious and we were well taken care of. They do an excellent job relating to Covid safety!
Outstanding - everything is simply outstanding . We go out once a week for date night and are certified foodies last time we were at Bellemore was for my birthday in February.
! I can’t tell you how many times we have been disappointed by other restaurants with the excuses of mediocre food and service on new covid procedures . Yes Bellemore takes your temperature , yes the menu is smaller BUT everything at Bellemore from the hostess greeting us , to the wait staff to the food was outstanding this past Saturday night.
Skip the other popular spots and go to Bellemore - I know we will !
Besides the great food and service, Bellemore plays a terrific music mix every time we are in.
