The comfortable atmosphere, with artful second-life décor, makes it a perfect West Side neighborhood gathering place. TWO sources from trusted, small mid-western farms. They are often the first Chicago restaurant to feature renowned items, such as the heritage Hampshire pork, on their menu. TWO chefs make all their bacon, sausage, jerky, cheese, sauces and pastas in house and are constantly exploring new and seasonal dishes to feature those ingredients.

We loved celebrating my husband’s birthday at TWO. Great selection of whiskeys and the Duck croquettes were the BEST. Also, the flank steak- do it! Service was wonderful and staff very welcoming. We’ll be coming back for sure!

New Year’s dinner was great! Croquettes still rule, the courses were a great size and wine list is tremendous.

Love this restaurant as a date spot. Some of the best food I've had in Chicago. We usually get 3-4 plates which runs about $60-70 not including tax and tip.

We had an amazing waitress. She was very attentive. We told her that we got there late and we were going to a party so she made sure to tell the kitchen we wanted a little faster service. Also, our glasses were always full and table clean. As far as the food, half the dishes were very good and half were ok. The waitress recommended the strip steak, which was the most expensive item on the menu. It was cooked nicely but didn’t have much flavor. It needed finishing salt. Also the Brussel sprouts dish was not as good as it could have been because they were not cut evenly and some were under cooked. It was also extremely Loud in there. I would recommend given their great environmentally friendly practices and locally sourced food. I am just not sure when we will go back and I would avoid those 2 dishes.

I’ve been here before and it was great. Everything we had this time lacked flavor and was very generic. We absolutely did not enjoy our trip here this time and I won’t be back or recommend others anymore.

Great service, lot of space. Everything we had was delicious but the steak was a little too salty and we wish we had more of the meat in the dish. The ricotta cavatelli was by far our favorite. Would definitely recommend for a date night or girls night.

Nice place..treated us very well. Food was fresh and home made. I recommend the Brussel sprouts that were cooked perfectly with bacon. Also on the top of the list was the hangar steak. Beautifully prepared and perfect temp. The jalapeño sauce with the squash was a nice veggie dish that had just the right amount of heat.

Truly enjoy this place. Have been there many times and each time is better than the last. Used a Groupon last couple times which really was worth getting. The food is quite tasty and the service is wonderful. The type of place that you would want to try different dishes each time you go. I must say everything we have tried so far has been great.

Graham the bartender is the best in the business, mixing fabulous cocktails, and curating the best whiskeys in town. If you're fortunate enough to be waited upon by Oscar, you can't ask for better service, and the magicians in the kitchen never disappoint. If you haven't checked this place out, you're doing yourself a disservice.

I’ve had TWO on my list of restaurants to check out in Chicago for awhile and am disappointed I didn’t make it to this spot sooner. The whole experience was exceptional. Great service and fantastic food. The owner of the restaurant, Yamandu, would stop at various tables throughout the night to see how people were doing. You could tell he really cares about his guests and how they are enjoying their time there. Everything we had on the menu I would absolutely have again. I can’t wait to go back! Highly recommend.

I made a reservation but it still took them 30 minutes to sit us. The service was slow and our waitress didn’t seem to know what she’s doing. The restaurant had a Groupon deal for two people so it was overbooked. The production line to get food out was also broken, we waited 30 mins between each dish, a bit ridiculous. The restaurant was extremely loud, EXTREMELY LOUD, for a second I thought I was eating at a club. Poor experience, will never go back for mediocre food.

Awesome food, awesome service, fun atmosphere. I have now been here twice with family and friends from out of town, a total of eleven guests in all. Not one person was even slightly disappointed by any menu item. Several said it was the best and most fun meal they can remember. It’s really fun to try and share a wide variety of dishes, each with unique flavors. I would highly recommend for family special occasions especially when four or more people can order different dishes to share.

Listen to staff then they say how many dishes to share... we never can decide so we get more than we can eat, every time. It is worth it though, wonderful seasonal flavors that make your mouth water. The bread options never disappoint. The pasta at times sound simple, yet executed to perfection. The only frustrating thing is we came twice in just over a week, wanting to experience the grilled short rib, yet both times it was unavailable.

The service here was excellent. Our server accommodated our requests for some items to be "on the side" with no problem. She asked how we wanted the courses in terms of sharing. Be sure you understand that portions are small, and they recommend sharing multiple courses. The flank steak was great, but the duck egg fettuccine was tough and not tender as the pasta should be. The wine was great. Another important note: PARKING IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE NEAR THERE. CONSIDER CAREFULLY IF YOU WANT TO DRIVE THERE.

Really disappointing experience at Two. Had two good dishes, one OK dish, and two dishes that were somewhat inedible. The shortrib was so over seasoned it tasted like I was eating a can of ground black pepper. The pasta dish was undercooked and the sauce was so thin (and sparse) that we were essentially just eating cured meat thrown on top of pasta. Was there celebrating a birthday and left very dissapointes.
