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.

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.

We came here for our wedding anniversary. It was a bit chilly and we chose to sit outdoors, but the heat lamps kept us warm! Our server was fantastic and they so kindly provided us with champagne and dessert to celebrate with us. Food was delicious and seasonal. It was great!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 !
