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

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

I have been to Bellemore numerous times and it has been fantastic each time. It's a beautiful restaurant and I find it very relaxing and comfortable. I eat a vegan diet and our server and the chef were very accommodating. Everything was perfect!

Would definitely recommend as a special occasion restaurant. We we went for our wedding anniversary and they went above and beyond to make it special (sparkling wine, cake, and a card). While the service was fantastic, the food is the real star. The foie gras, cod and short rib were delicious; the only problem was we had the tasting menu and wanted more of any or all of these dishes. We did the wine pairing as well which was extremely reasonable @ $49, however none of the wines were that great, and some of the pairings seemed off to us (chardonnay with venison tartar?) Might not do the wine pairing again, but definitely will be back for food and service.

This was our first visit and it was amazing. First and foremost, Fernando was an awesome host. He made sure the food was on point and our wine glasses were always full. The overall service was exceptional. The dishes on the tasting menu were creative and carefully prepared, with fresh ingredients throughout. We're looking forward to visiting again.

We had a great lunch, our server was attentive, explained the menu items we asked about, so we could chose the right meal.
The carrot toast, is awesome a must if you are eating here!

Both meals were delivered hot and fresh and very flavorful.
We had a late lunch and were the only ones left for about 15minutes, we didnt feel pressured or uncomfortable, will definetly revisit here soon!

We had a wonderful experience, in particular our server Kiwi was amazing. Thoughtful, knowledgeable and very professional. We loved the fresh Hawaiian rolls, stone fruit salad, Kanpachi , messinesi, and the
arctic char. All were delicious , and presented beautifully. Our 11 year old said they looked like little sculptures.

While still very good we were less enthusiastic about the nori radiatore ( very rich and less interesting. While the food grilled octopus was the opposite and had to many flavors that detracted from the octopus.

We were too full for dessert but hope to be back soon.

This place continues to impress and delight with each of my visits. The food well exceeds expectations - from appearance to taste to creativity and ingenuity to overall wow factor - every.single.plate is unbelievable! The cocktail menu is inspired and delicious, the wine list extensive yet thoughtful, the service impeccable and the decor just gorgeous. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Atmosphere, cocktails, food & service were all fantastic. Food highlights included the focaccia from the snacks portion of the menu, the little gem salad, the octopus, nori radiatore, Arctic char, halibut and chicken . . . and all of the desserts, which were incredible. This was one of the best meals I've had in Chicago in some time.

Absolutely blown away by everything. We were celebrating my boyfriend’s bday and got glass of wine, a birthday card, AND birthday dessert. The service was phenomenal, food was delicious, and the environment was incredible. My bf is very hard to please when it comes to food but he was talking about how great of a job I did picking Bellemore for about a week straight. He said he will come back with his family and that he could eat here every day. The best there is in Chicago!

Disappointing and wildly overpriced. “Snack” of snail “toasts” was big thick soggy pieces of bread with snails on top that had to be cut to eat, scattering snails everywhere. Octopus second course overwhelmed by many different flavors—could barely taste the octopus. Halibut was served cold. Servers arrived at the table and said who had the fish? Not what I would expect in a fine dining restaurant. Room is lovely but food needs work.

Our first time dining here. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and were offered a table to have drinks, rather having to wait at the bar. We were celebrating a job offer - and the staff could not have been nicer. Relaxed atmosphere and inventive menu. We will be back.
