Cool looking place with attentive servers. Food was good but I gave a 3 star on food bc the menu was so limited. If you took the burgers and chicken sandwich off the menu, not counting salads there were only about 4 entrees to choose from

The overall experience was nice. The fried chicken and waffles lacked flavor, especially the chicken. Also if you are going to have suggestions posted for your mimosa bar, then I’d hope you’d have the ingredients listed which wasn’t the case as there wasn’t pear juice or purée.

Everything was great! The cheesy eggs to die for. $25 bottomless mimosas are definitely worth it, you pour your own so you know we have to make em strong with a splash of juice. Everything was great. Seen the chicken n waffles walk by after we were eating and for sure getting that next time!!

My lychee martini was super tart. Ceviche was delicious as was my Branzino. Hubby’s short rib was ok. Our server was on point. Cool vibe in there.

All the dishes were delicious, the ambiance was magnificent, the mimosa bar was nice although crowded at times. The only issue is that the food portions were incessantly small it was more tapas style and it NOT worth the cost. The steak portion was about five quarter in width and length pieces. I was left wondering where the rest of my food was, hunger definitely not averted. Burger was nice size and spare ribs were so small you received more ricotta cheese than you did meat.

This was one of our favorite places 2018/2019 but we'd not been for a while. When we came more regularly, we almost alway sat in a booth by the bar ( during that time the the seating, etc. was upgraded), We happily had the same wonderful hostess (her name was Melissa, I think?). She was superb in every way and contributed great to our 5 star experience.
This time around, I requested booth seating in the bar area when I reserved through Opentable but the hostess did not see notice that request until I asked and we had to sit elsewhere. It worked out ok. Our server was very nice and the food was very good.

My boyfriend and I were celebration our engagement there last Saturday. I booked it via OpenTable and called the restaurant few hours before our arrival to request a quiet table and a bottle of bubbly. They were very friendly, professional and offered a great table while still on the phone. They made it easy and we felt well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this spot - service, food, prices, ambiance were all great!

Everything was great, however, when we got there, the hostess said we needed to leave by a certain time in order to fit in another reservation. Besides that, the service, food, and place was amazing!

Great atmosphere and service. Feels like the neighborhood restaurant but with the west loop trendy feel. I have enjoyed a great meal and cocktail a number of times over the last year.

Such a pleasant surprise. We’d never been before, but we are definitely go back. We were greeted warmly at the front when we walked in and seated promptly. We went for Restaurant week. I had the burger with fontina cheese and fries cooked in duck fat. My companion had the Amish chicken with spinach, tempura mushrooms, mashed potatoes and mustard seeds. For the starter option, we both had butternut squash soup. And for dessert, we had the sorbet and the cheesecake. Everything was delicious. The atmosphere was modern but warm and inviting. Some modern spaces feel sterile and aloof. Our server, Emmy, was friendly, professional, helpful and accommodating. Overall, a phenomenal environment, a top quality meal and a satisfying experience.

One of our favorite spots. We always try to hit the happy hour and combine it with a great dinner. This time we had the tuna taco's and found them to be outstanding. Our service was fast, friendly and efficient. Our water glasses were always full. We are finding this to be our go to place when we want a quality meal that is a good value.

Three of us went to the Madison for a NYE dinner. We ordered two cocktails each, about $13/drink--the drinks were amazing! The Oaxacan Old Fashioned and Smoked Show were both great drinks if you're a mezcal fan. I ordered the oysters and crab cakes which were decent. The chicken sandwich was nothing out of the ordinary. I would definitely come back for a few rounds of drinks (not sure if they have a happy hour) and would definitely try their brunch!

We were seated right away as we had a reservation. The ambiance of the restaurant is unique and nice, but not stuffy. Our server Georgia was outstanding and very conscientious. She always made sure we had what we needed. There was another man bussing tables who was very aware and on top of things. It was good to see staff at their best on a holiday night. All the food we ate was delicious. I’d recommend the burrata appetizer. The only reason I didn’t give this place five stars is because I feel the menu could be a little more interesting with more vegetarian options.

The service was great but the food was just OK. Lots of noise and simply not my type of place.
