Beautiful place to sit by the river and have a few drinks. If you’re looking for a nice restaurant with good service, maybe look elsewhere. You have to walk up to the bar to get the drinks and food.

It’s a perfect location with great views. The food is average so i would say best to just go for a beer or wine.

I loved how you have modified the experience to align with the CDC guidelines for covid. I felt very safe and really appreciate the thoughtful changes you have made. I will be back because of that specifically (and the ambiance of course). The only thing I would suggest (if possible) is to bring tables cups for water and a carafe to fill water ourselves. I had to get up multiple times to ask for more water. Other than that, I was incredibly pleased with the dining experience!

The food was ok. Nothing to brag about. The only thing great was the view being on the river walk. But the river walk was closed. Could not walk it I’m assuming because the whole pandemic but every one is walking everywhere else so that made no sense. But that’s not the establishments fault.

Food was good, however, they were skimpy on the turkey meat for the sandwich. Elote was top notch.

With the weather being a little spotting with rain but had cleared up in time for the reservation so we headed over (this is after calling the restaurant twice to confirm they were open) since we didn’t hear anything from the restaurant or opentable we had assumed they were still open and taking guest. This was not the case. Got there and completely closed. No call. No text. No email. Nothing! So we ended up wasting our time in energy going to a place that we clearly confirmed for which knew they were going to be closed and no sort of communication to the customers. Real bad taste left in my mouth after that.

We had a great time sitting outside by the river for Father's Day. Food was good and decently priced. Drinks were a bit expensive, but as a Chicago resident, it wasn't anything too shocking.

Our nacho appetizer took a long time to get to our table, and by the time they did get to us, they were really cold. Due to COVID though,I don’t want to be too harsh. The scenery is always amazing and the table were spaced well, drinks were good and staff was very friendly!

Ronaldo was a great host. There was a long line of people waiting to get seated but he followed up with us regularly to let us know when our table would be ready. I really appreciated his attentiveness. Ambiance is always on point and you all did a good job with providing canned beverages and paper supplies during the covid pandemic.

They were overwhelmed and refused entry even though we had a reservation. Waited 45 minutes though we had a reservation.

Had a 4:45 reservation and waited 15 minutes and hadn’t been seated yet so we left. Seemed like they scheduled way too many people for their capacity as a lot of people had to wait for a long time

We had a 2pm reservation but they didn’t seat us until 2:30. They kept seating parties ahead of us that didn’t have reservations. Not very organized and not very helpful. Had to remind them of our reservation a couple times.

Customer service was terrible. We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation. There were multiple 2 person reservations for times after ours that were seated first. I talked to the host on 3 occasions asking for updates and he never gave a definite time and never apologized for the poor service. I understand the difficulty of covid, but I expected much more from a place like this. Stick to city winery next door for a better experience.

Took a while to receive food. When we did, one sandwich was missing and instead of immediately going back to get it, the order was placed at the end of the line.
By the time the last sandwich finally came, everyone else was done with their food.

They blamed it on only being opened a few days, but they weren't a brand new restaurant, so it wasn't new to them.

They said we would receive a refund for the sandwich, but not sure if my friend every did receive the refund.
