Anthony is a great server. Very attentive and knowledgeable of the food and the different selections of alcohol! Will be returning next week! This time will be sitting at the bar! Time limit on table seating but host will work with you if they are not too busy!
Amazing steak and great bourbon selection. Wait staff was on point. Highly recommend.
I do not recommend outdoor seating. This is under the L, on a bad sidewalk with tiny tables.
Amazing experience and food was unique and phenomenal!
Usually when I book a reservation in the “bar” at a restaurant, that means a table in the bar area…not a seat at the actual bar. Apparently here it’s just a seat at the bar—just a heads up!
The food tastes good, we waited almost 45 mins to get our food, most of them came out cold. Probably won’t go back but it was a cool vibe.
Very good meal. Apps were great along with entrees. Highly recommend.
The ambiance and the service make it a perfect place for a meal with great friends!
Took my boyfriend out for his birthday and everything was outstanding. The host found us a spot inside even though we were booked for outside. Drew, our server was fantastic, attentive, and funny. Made some good recommendations. The food and drinks were phenomenal, I will definitely be returning. 10/10
We’ve been for cocktails and oysters before and love this place. Our first time having a full meal here. The food was incredible! Oysters, cocktails, and service were top notch as always
Amazing! The service was great and the food even better. The plating of the food was beautiful with nice bright colors and tons of flavor that came together. I can’t wait to come back.
Everything was fantastic! I will be back and would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Nice ambiance, food was great, our server Jeanne was terrific!
We dined here on a Saturday night with our teenagers and loved everything! The food and atmosphere was lively and delicious. Our entrees took a while, so the chef gave us three complimentary desserts. Highly recommend this classic Chicago spot!
The ambience, food and service was amazing! We loved everything we ate. The mussels are phenomenal. The steak is superb. Mango cheesecake is tasty. Cocktails are so well balanced. Highly recommend.
Helpful staff , good food a little pricey
We had such a fun time and amazing drinks!
The food was interesting and incredible had several small dishes (including oysters and everything was fresh and delicious.
We love this place! The service is impeccable, food is delish and can’t beat the vibe-so cool!
Great food,ambience and service
Amazing service and best ribeye I’ve had.
Overall great night but was disappointed to find out the happy hour specials ended and they used to be featured everywhere, even recently. Our waiter was great though and we still had a good time. I got double points which was nice but I would’ve preferred to have just had the regular
Overpriced. Mussels and steak tartare were good but nothing to write home about. One rib-eye was overcooked. Drink concoctions were total misses. At over $400 with tip. Not worth it.
Do not pass on the taro fries! That being said, this is a pricey place. Be prepared!
Incredible food and such good service
The only thing not to love is the occasional train noise
Birthday dinner was lovely! We got mussels, sea bass, and steak. They gave us complementary dessert! Made the evening very special. Our server Julia was wonderful.
I was here to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends. I chose this restaurant because I alive speakeasy and city-tavern vibes. Also, we all flew into Chicago to run the half marathon. So I wanted to pre-celebrate, since we all live in different states.
Our seating was nice, hostess was pleasant and waiter was kind. From the appetizers to our entrees were all delicious. Although, I thought I might have got a complimentary birthday dessert. But that didn’t happen. I wished we had more of a view of the nice bar at least. But it was spaced out for Covid reasons so that’s understandable.
The music was our vibe too.
Anyhow, overall pleased and would love to come back & grab a drink at their bar.
We had a delicious meal. The mussels were a fantastic starter and we enjoyed tbe steak and scallop dinners. Just note, the "patio" is the sidewalk tables and the El runs right overhead but it honestly just added to the experience of eating a good meal in Chicago.
Outside patio is right under the El tracks so good luck having a dinner conversation. The drinks were not what you would expect. Manhattan tasted like a grape juice or whiskey punch (did not enjoy). Oysters were sub-par and due to rain we were unable to eat anything else as they had no room to accommodate us inside. If service was a little quicker, we may have gotten at least one more course in before the rain.
First time at the Franklin room for my birthday last Wednesday, and it was a treat! It was a vegetarian paradise, and the wait staff made me feel very special.
Very good setting with outstanding food. I’ve decided to go there again
Absolute gem of a restaurant, the service was awesome and the food impeccable. One of the best meals of my life and far surpassed many more expensive meals. Truly a great chef and a great meal.
We celebrated our friends birthday on the patio. It was a beautiful evening. The food is absolutely fantastic!!! Service was excellent. Yes the brown line runs next to the patio iso if that bothers you eat indoors. We had a lovely time with some of the best food we have had in the city.
