Salty, salty, salty! There were six people in my party, so we were able to share about 10 different dishes (from starters to mains). Aside from the beats starter dish, everything was VERY salty. Mediocre food, at best. Plus, the lighting was way too low. We couldn't even see what we were eating half the time. Service was good, and wine was good. But left something to desire for a $700 meal.
Good experience. A bit expensive but not the worst. Great service and plenty of room between tables for conversation.
Tried almost half the menu... everything was incredible! The risotto is one of the creamiest, most flavorful dishes I’ve had. Dumplings were awesome, wagyu skirt steak with mushrooms was prepared flawlessly. Arrive hungry!
DELICIOUS! Get the sturgeon dish - it is soooo great. I hope they keep it on the menu forever. My husband loves the burger and the duck fat fries are just fabulous. Highly recommend this lovely neighborhood restaurant!
Love this place! We were running about 10 minutes late so I called and informed the host and he was totally cool about it whereas some places can be curt and love to remind you that they will give away your table if you're more than 15 minutes late.
Shortly after being seated we were greeted by Kelli G. and because HH was due to end shortly, she took our drink and HH food orders so that we could take advantage of the great prices.You can't beat $5 glasses of wine and $6 food options. We chose the beets, squash arancini balls, and duck fat fries. All dishes were good except the beets and I really love beets, so that was a bummer. The monkey bread was on point, you can't go wrong with cacio e pepe, but the Amish 1/2 chicken....Whoa! I see why it's their #1 ordered dish. For dessert, we chose the caramel sundae and the pb cookies with cremaux. The cremaux was salty and the least favorite.
The ambiance is great here, it felt very cozy and comfortable, the service and food were great. I can't wait to come back.
Sunday night dinner for a birthday celebration. Service was amazing from start to end. Everything we tried was fantastic - Porchetta, cacio e pepe, mussels, fries (we had more dishes but these stood out for me) and we shared 3 desserts. We could have licked the plates clean. Round of cocktails and a bottle of wine kept us happier. We will be back
The experience, from start to finish, was great! The service was perfect, food was delicious, and I felt like it was a good value.
Better to do a few apps and share plates
enjoyable experience....enjoyed duck experience and wine pairing
This is such a good restaurant offering good menu and tasty food.
We enjoyed having mussels, wahu steak and mushroom tagliatelle.
All were superb.
We will be back again soon.
I also love the fact that they take reservations for brunch so no wait is necessary.
Solid brunch food, the Tuscan kale salad was very good. Quite noisy.
Delicious food and drinks! Great service
Food was great and service was amazing! The raviola and monkey bread were delicious and drinks were great too
They no longer served the dishes we came to enjoy.
The atmosphere was wonderful, quiet, low lighting, good for an intimate meal. The servers were friendly, fairly knowledgeable on the drinks and food menu and were helpful. They ask about allergens before sending your order to the kitchen. The food is prepared fresh and takes some time to arrive- which is great and rare to find a place in Chicago which doesn't try to get you in and out in under an hour. The ingredients appear to be good quality and the flavours are well matched, very rich and quite salty but tasty. The portion sizes are good, not too huge like a lot of places. The B-sides 3 course menu is great, and the regular a la carte is also good. You can get good deals on drinks and starters during happy hour too. The bathrooms looked nice and were clean.
Great food, nice atmosphere, good cocktails. A lovely evening out.
This was where my girlfriend and I had what we describe retroactively as our first date. We came back to relive that night and create new memories. Everything was great as usual.
Amish chicken and basque cake were awesome!
The Bristol had great food and great cocktails. Great place for a date or girls night.
The smoke salmon platter is so good!!! The bagel is toasted perfectly.
The food is good, but I was very, very disappointed with the service. We brought a cake for our friend’s birthday. The staff told us it was a $1.50 cake cutting fee per person, which we thought was a little silly, but we were fine with it. When the time came, the staff came over and asked the entire table whose birthday it was rather than being discreet. It was so odd. Then they cut the entire cake and put a candle in a slice, rather than bringing out the cake, which had something written on it to the birthday girl so she didn’t even get to see it. I cannot believe that they would charge a fee for that kind of service! They should be embarrassed. I will not be going back.
This is our 3rd visit and we are really loving The Bristol. Nice ambiance. Salad with endive and peaches is great, but the sturgeon entrée was to die for good. I hope it stays on the menu for a while. Seems to be a well managed place.
We (3 long time girlfriends) were there celebrating all of our birthdays and the manger Charles made sure it was special! Our reservation was during the last 15 minutes of happy hour and we were able to take advantage of it! I would have paid the regular price it was so good!! The drinks, I had the “that’s my jam” was outstanding and refreshing! We had all four happy hour appetizers and one was better than the next! Still thinking of the duck fat fries - they are a must! The entrees were delicious and we shared them all!! It was like having a tasting menu of wonderful food!! Cacio e Pepe was fantastic, as was the Amish chicken and the fennel-garlic sausage! I can’t say enough about Charles making sure everything was perfect for us!!!! Can’t wait to go back!!!
The Bristol went above and beyond to make our experience special and surprised us with champagne for our anniversary!
One of the best brunches around. Really enjoying the menu and kids breakfast.
Fantastic experience here. Ambiance was terrific, food and cocktails were exceptional and service was over-the-top great. We will come back here every time we visit Chicago.
We had an 8pm reservation for 4 people and weren't seated until about 9:15pm. As frustrating as this can be, the entire staff was extremely apologetic and we ended up getting a couple rounds of drinks, appetizers, and even giftcards on the house. Unfortunately, one of the entrees we were planning to order was sold out by the time we were seated. The pastas here are delicious but cooked very al dente, which isn't for everyone. While we appreciate the effort made to remedy the situation, I don't think I'd come back here except for when we redeem our giftcards.
AMAZING. Food was very good and the Happy Hour deals until 6:30 during the weekend are some of the best in the city
Overall experience was great. Service was quick in beginning but resumed to normal pace throughout the remainder of the meal. Would definitely return and recommend the Edive salad, monkey brad, and muscles.
The food was amazing
One of the best meals I've had in recent memory. Not only was the food extremely delicious, but the flavors were so varied and different than other restaurants in the city. Cannot recommend this place enough!!
Tremendous dinner! Well thought out and balanced dishes with excellent service! Will be back soon
Limited choice of entrees.
The starters were fantastic, and so was the pasta and corn risotto. Very friendly and helpful service. We’ll be back.
My husband and I are here to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance is perfect for date night. It's dim but not dark. We started off with the monkey bread and then ordered another round of monkey bread with our dinner because it was so good. I ordered the corn cappelletti and it made me dance in my seat. I also ordered the "Not Carrie's Cosmo" and it was delightful. 10/10 would eat here again!
We had a lovely time, the staff was very accommodating and the food was absolutely delicious!
We came as a party of 7. Service was outstanding. Food was very tasty.
Best service we have had in Chicago in a very long time.
Crystal our server was fantastic. Best food we have had in years.
