This place is what restaurant should be! 100% focus on the customer and on the quality of their product. Karin & Tim, managers are a stellar team and the staff was incredible. The entire operation runs as a team. The menu was great, the food was incredible...Halibut, Duck and the Pasta was a nice mix. The $68 oyster pie was tasty but I don't have an appreciation for caviar, so that was a bit excessive to me. The decor was great and we went to celebrate a birthday and the entire staff signed with personally written notes a birthday card for my friend. The brought out a little cake with a candle to celebrate! Seriously one of the best dining experiences in my 27th years of eating in Chicago. I'll be back!

We had a most memorable birthday dinner. The evening began with delivery of a birthday card signed by more than a dozen waiters and staff. The cocktails were fantastic, and the food was outstanding. The sommelier is a very personable, approachable guy and provided great wine suggestions that paired nicely with the variety of meals we ordered. He also took the time to explain his suggestions and answer questions. Fine dining without stuffiness or pretension. Perfect.

Finally, a restaurant that actually lives up to its rave reviews. Our meal was extraordinary. Loved the Hawaiian rolls, chilled garlic and potato soup, house salad, pig three ways and the duck. Service was spot-on, very attentive without being overbearing. The BOKA Group has truly delivered on this one!

Such a fine addition to the West Loop. This was my second lunch at Bellemore. First was good. This was great. I had a salad with whipped goat cheese at the bottom of the greens. Remarkable. Service was quick and helpful. Lovely physical space.

Could not tell if the server was overworked or just inattentive. Had to wait for drink orders and water glasses were sometimes empty for those not having cocktails.

We talked about the service on the walk back to the office, but everyone enjoyed the entrees and apps and would go back again.

My go-to location for business lunches, I am never disappointed by the food, atmosphere, or service. Each guest I have invited to the Bellemore has been similarly impressed. The manager, Lisa, really seems invested in each guests enjoyment of the dining experience. Well done and keep up the great work.

Bread rolls considered an appetizer?! We were shocked and disappointed when the Hawaiian Rolls arrived. They were good, and somewhat better than the Kings Hawaiian Rolls one buys at the grocery store, but an appetizer they are not. Green salad, while an interesting combination of items, was dry...no dressing was discernible. Entrees (pork, chicken and duck) fared much better. All were creatively and well prepared. Chocolate and strawberry desserts were very good...interesting, not overly sweet and not overly large but good for sharing.

I visited Bellemore with my fiance to celebrate our five year anniversary and upon arrival, our server delivered a card signed by the entire staff. That set the tone for this incredible evening. The space is absolutely beautiful and our server was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and attentive. Although those are both important aspects of an experience, we came for the food and IT DELIVERED. We ordered a handful of different dishes and dessert. Everything we had was unbelievable and I would love to go back and try more. I highly recommend visiting Bellemore.
