    Very attentive. Seated right away. Had the crab cake appetizer. It was excellent. The old fashioned was a bit overpriced at $25. Very good though. I had a large salad with chicken. Excellent! No complaints, excellent view of city. They even remembered my note re: my husband’s birthday. Would highly recommend but you need advance reservations!!!

    I have never left a bad review anywhere and it could have been a bad or off day but it was the worst bar experience I’ve had in Chicago! There were 3-4 other tables and it took about 30 minutes to get drinks and another 20 to get additional drinks missed in the order. There was no air conditioning and an 85 degree day, water was not brought along with drinks and the waitress was no where to be found and rude when coming to the table

    Bad service. After an hour and a half our appetizers and dinner were no where to be found. We ended up leaving without dinner and went to get wings somewhere else.

    I didn’t get a fork for over half of my meal and appetizer. Not sure what was going on but never experienced that before. Our waiter was super nice about it, clearly not his fault but I won’t be back.

    Outdoor dining, with a fabulous view??? Yes, please!!! Cocktail menu had plenty of options. Food menu was simple, but plenty to choose from for our family of four. Dinner: steak taco did not meet expectations ; salad with grilled chicken was really good; chicken sandwich was tasty; smashburger was ok, but was on the well done end of the doneness spectrum (was not aske dhow wed like it done, btw). Desert: the churros were ok; honestly, no comparison to the kind you'd get at a ubiquitous street fair. Worth the stop ... and we can see how this will be a great location, especially during the summer months.

    The views are worth it, but I would never order food here. We went for drinks and apps, and after seeing the experience of other guests, we decided to skip the apps. They were out of eggs and orange juice during brunch. We got drinks and some of the glasses weren’t clean & we had to send them back. However, the view was worth it. Very glad we didn’t plan on eating brunch there!

    Waited 45 minutes for tables then another 2 hours and never got any food. Kitchen apparently didn’t know how to many any food. This was the worst and most restaurant experience i’ve ever had in my life especially my birthday.

    Went there for Mother’s day, waited 2 hours and never got food. Kitchen just melted down and no orders were going out. Beautiful spot but service and kitchen is just a mess. Can’t recommend at this time.

    Was very disappointed with our experience on Mother’s Day. We had a reservation for 12:45 and waited about 20 minutes to be seated. We waited another 25 minutes after we sat down for a waiter to come. We finally got up and asked the bartender if we can have a waiter. He gave us our drinks and then said he will be serving us. There was also barely any people there. They originally sat us on couches even though we were there for brunch and the main part of it was so hot it was like a sauna. The temperature outside was only about 70 degrees. We ended up sitting inside. The menu for mother’s day was different than the regular brunch menu with only a handful of options. The food came out cold and they served us frozen tater tots and a biscuit. My skillet was something i’ve never experienced before. Very disappointed.
