Service wasn't good on a Sunday when they were empty. I couldn't understand why the servers were taking so long to come to our table or do anything. I doubt I'll be back but thankfully the food was good.

Service and ambience was very good. Loved the burrata shareable plate. Not impressed with the grilled octopus as it was a portion for one person. Overall the food items were tasty and the drinks were perfectly made, refreshing and well balanced cocktails.

Went for Mothers Day brunch and must say the food was amazing and at a great value. Staff was very tentative and friendly. It is very family friendly but also has a great bar and live music. Wife and I will be back for a date nite next time!

We had a nice time after a surprise scheduling that we needed to do for Mother’s Day. We read some of the reviews that showed that there was some trouble with the atmosphere and service, but went for it anyway. We didn’t have any issue aside from it being a little chilly in the place. Food was good service was great. Was a nice place to drop in quickly and grab a meal.

This wasn't the restaurant I thought it was - it has a very similar name to another restaurant in the area. Still, the drinks were good, and even though the food menu felt short, the food was tasty. I only wish that they'd closed the giant patio/garage doors or turned on heaters... the place was near empty on a Saturday night, and we had our coats on through the whole dinner.

Visited on St. Patrick's Day for lunch and the place wasn't very busy at first but picked up as the day went along. Not sure they were expecting a sudden rush and were maybe a bit understaffed. With that said, the food was great especially the chicken wings. The space itself has a nice casual but upscale vibe given the decor. Will definitely go back again.

The food was good and the physical space was really cool. However, our family of 7 people were one of ~4 groups dining at that time and so we expected quicker service than we received. The food seemed to take a very long time to arrive and our waiter was not very helpful in communicating what was going on. Overall it was good, but not excellent.

The place was empty and we were told to pick a table of our choice. My friend and I waited at the table for 15 minutes before someone brought us water. I ended up going up to the bar to order my own drink. Then, the bartender didn't come back for another 10 minutes. At this point, my friend and I decided to try Fulton Market Kitchen.

I booked this restaurant/bar by mistake for a group of my friends. I thought I was booking Fulton Market Kitchen. We were seated next to where staff was exiting to smoke cigarettes. It was like they were smoking right at our table. So horrible for non smokers. Due to this we didn’t end up staying for dinner. We had a couple apps and some drinks and had to leave due to the smell of smoke.

Do. Not. Go. Here.
It took 20 minutes for someone to come around and take our drink order. Close to 30 minutes after that we still didn’t even have the waters we ordered and ultimately got up and left.
Terrible service.

The atmosphere of the place was amazing and very chill. The food was absolutely delicious! It was a perfect place to try new things drinks and food. I highly recommend getting a flight of beer because there were so many to choose from that it helped me narrow the choices down to 5. I will definitely go there again!
P.S. The music selection that played while we were there was on-point!

We had a great experience! Great on a summer night with the huge windows being opened. I saw some bad reviews due to the construction in the area (but obviously that is not forever) so hopefully people will take that into account and venture out :)

While they were definitely understaffed, service was not great. We walked in and were one of two tables and saw our server a total of two times in the 1.5 hours we were there. We had to find her to get the check and at one point had to order drinks from the bar. In addition, I’m not sure they should have opened yet as the floor to ceiling windows were nonexistent and instead covered with tarps. The hummus was more of a chickpea soup than a hummus, and we (a table of 4) ordered the dates which came as an order of three. Other tapas places typically let me know that information upfront and offer to add additional items so each guest can have their own bite. Finally, the menu prices were not on par with other tapas places around the city, especially when you consider the quality was not great. It seems as though they’re using their “trendy” location to up the prices, but when the restaurant has only two tables filled at 7 PM on a Saturday night, they should reconsider their ridiculous pricing.

Good experience- the restaurant did not have many patrons, probably due to construction they were doing on their front windows. The windows were covered with plastic. The restaurant was a bit cold due to not having windows installed at the time. The wait staff was really friendly and welcoming and the food was really good! I would definitely return on a warmer summer night where I could enjoy the open window concept.

We ended up ordering 5 plates to share, and would highly recommend the mini lamb burgers and lobster risotto. The cucumber martini was delicious, perfect spring/summer go to.

It took about 15 minutes for anyone to even come to our table with water. Then they asked if we had been helped, clearly they didn’t know who needed to wait on us. We ordered beer and an app right away. About 30 minutes later we got our entree but still no appetizer (mussels). We ordered a Greek salad and all it was chopped up cucumbers and tomatoes. Additionally, we ordered a $17 pizza assuming a pizza for that price would be a decent size. They came out with about a 6” pizza as big as my hand. Not a good value at all, service was poor, and food was mediocre. Would not recommend for dinner, maybe for drinks.

I was expecting a bit more for a restaurant/bar in the West Loop. We brought friends from out of town thinking we could not go wrong with an place in this area of town. Menu was quite limited and was pretty so so for being located in this area. Not a good fit for what we were looking for but worth checking out if you are wondering by.

It was a very erratic ambiance. We stumbled across this place as it was a last minute decision. It was the only place that had availability for 4 on a Saturday night. It was odd. they kept dimming the lights and turning it back on...this happens at least 3 times. The sliders and burgers come in 3s...the waitress told us the manager cannot add on an extra slider even for an extra charge(what!!!!!?). We ended up getting garlic shrimp instead. The beers were free with a yelp check in for each person...that was a super nice perk. We tried the grilled octopus which was good but tad over done. The mussels were pretty amazing....ask for extra bread to soak the spicy garlicky broth. I think it was the game broth for the gambas al ajillo. I personally didn't care for the artichoke dip....it reminded me of sour cream onion chips too much. I love lays sour cream onion potato chips but won't want that flavor it in a nice tapas style restaurant. Service was spotty...it felt like more of a bar than restaurant.

The vibe was great -- we were the only ones there on a Wednesday night. The food was excellent, but a touch on the expensive side for small plates; I went with three coworkers and between food and drink we each wound up spending ~$60. Definitely a great beer selection -- we'll absolutely be back!
