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 had a very nice anniversary dinner.
We enjoyed meeting the owners and learning about the history of the restaurant.
The food and drinks were outstanding.
I will go back very soon. It will be in my regular rotation.

We have been frequent diners at TWO over the past five years and it remains our favorite dining spot in Chicago. You are warmly greeted by Shamandou, the owner, service is exceptional, and the food is phenomenal. We highly recommend the charred cabbage, grilled octopus, salmon, and their trademark Cheeseburger and fries which is a step above Au Cheval. It was a bittersweet dinner for us as we will be moving to CA in early January and we will sorely miss our dining experiences at TWO.

Drinks were fine , but food was something I could make In my own Kitchen if I needed to throw stuff together with various ingredients. We almost asked if something was wrong with oven, veggies were steamed not charred/broiled and they said they were out of the burger.

Without a doubt the best restaurant in the West Loop/West Town. Think I'm exaggerating? Then you haven't been here. This has been our "go-to" place for years. The service is terrific (thanks, Oscar!) the food is always wonderful and the kitchen really knows how to pace a meal! The menu changes frequently so, there's always something new to try. Nice wine list, too! We've never left disappointed . . . and always look forward to our next visit.

Two is amazing. We live in the neighborhood and it has become our go-to for celebrations, out of towners, and any time we just want a really delicious meal.
The food is spectacular, and the service is always prompt, considerate, and friendly.

Amazing Spirits selection. Would have liked more beer selection too.
Food was amazing and it’s the 3rd time going here and it’s always been great. Burger is one of the best around and the pastas were similar to an upscale Italian spot.
Could be my go to spot.

One of the best dinners we've had recently. Every dish we ordered came out perfect, as was the pace in which they came out. The cocktails were great, and the service was even better. We tend to sit at the bar, over the dining area, as we like to chat. Questions were answered, and the recommendations were spot on. Definitely a great spot.

YUM, wow was this a delicious meal. Food is layered and flavorful, the cabbage dish was truly remarkable and SO incredible but we loved every thing we tried. We went early and it was easy to talk although they got busy. The restaurant has a lovely feel too and staff were great and friendly. HIGHLY Recommend

We were a half hour early for our reservation, and were seated immediately. Our server, Zoe, was knowledgable and friendly. She gave a quick description of the restaurant and highlighted some menu items.
We opened with the duck fat potato croquettes and grilled broccoli. The croquettes were crisp and just melted in your mouth. The broccoli had a beautiful char and was seasoned perfectly.
I ordered the grilled octopus as my entree, and my wife went with the cavatelli. Both were outstanding- the octopus was tender and its flavor was allowed to shine through.
As my Proposition Joe cocktail was hitting hard, we ordered the pork sausage and homemade naan bread. This may have been my wife's favorite course within the meal.
To finish, we shared the cheese cake and the yellow cake. Both were delightful- the yellow cake would be perfect with a giant glass of milk, but was still excellent with their coffee.
Strongly recommend for an upscale casual experience, or in a group where you can share plates

My wife and I enjoyed our visit. Our server was exceptional. The food was way above average. I had the cavatelli and my wife has the spaghetti. Really nice work on those dishes. We will be back. Hopefully to try the burger next time :)

Not one of my regular hangouts. The service was outstanding! They don't filter their water and you can smell the chlorine. This is the main reason I don't frequent this restaurant. About a year ago, I asked our waiter why they don't filter the water and he said it's because the establishment wants patrons to purchase bottled water. Not thrilled with the response. I assume that all of the food is rinsed and cooked with non-filtered water. Also, are the ice cubes in my cocktail unfiltered? The food is pricey, but I would still recommend this place (not highly) as the food is good.

Loved the variety and taste of everything we ate. Finally, a place that doesn't think adding "heat" to everything makes it taste good.

The chef needs to get over himself. We asked to sub a side starch for a vegetable on a dish and he refused. He wouldn’t modify ANYTHING. The place felt like a dive bar. The poor waiter didn’t even feel comfortable asking the chef to serve broccoli instead of potatoes with a fish entree. We ended up leaving disappointed. Will not go back.

From the first time we went to Two (years ago), the waiters, bartenders, kitchen staff and managers have been perfectly attentive and extremely friendly - outstanding service without exception! We always feel welcome and relaxed, and have a glass of wine (nice selection of wines by the glass) before dinner. And The FOOD! We go for the food !! We share as many dishes as we can each visit in order to taste everything! Appetizers are so tasty. Croquettes are always melt-in-your-mouth, as is the grilled octopus (!!) every time we have it. Pasta dishes are fantastic, and well, Pork belly -- we always have to order two because neither of us wants to share that! Top fave (in the top five!) restaurant!

We have dined multiple times at Two and it remains our favorite dining spot in Chicago. You are warmly greeted by the owner and Oscar is a terrific server. We asked the owner for his top recommendation and he suggested the charred cabbage. We gave it a try and it was fabulous. We also had the grilled prawns, grilled octopus, and duck fettuccine which were excellent as well!

Chose “Two” for after theatre dinner-someplace new. I had the walleye that was bland but not fishy. Potatoes chips on top???? My friend had the burger/fries. She asked for ketchup and was told the restaurant didn’t carry it?? She didn’t like the burger-ate a quarter of it.
No bread is served($9 on menu). More like a coffee shop atmosphere but not as cheap!!

Excellent as always. There were 5 of us for dinner. We pretty much had 80% of everything on the menu. Everything was delicious. Grilled octopus, prime hanger steak, PEI mussels, double cheeseburger, roasted chicken, curried cauliflower, bread with edamame hummus, duck fat potato croquettes (my favorite!), puppy chow, & honey cheesecake with raspberries. Delicious wines by the glass. Great service!

Wonderful Food and Service
Recently had a delightful dining experience at Two. I had bought a Groupon for a "chef selection dinner" of four shared courses (starter, seafood, pasta and dessert plus a bottle of wine). It was expiring within days so we were there early for dinner on Sunday. We started with a couple of their tasty cocktails -- I had the Lady T. (whiskey, sake, vermouth and cardamon bitters) and my husband the Eleven thirty TWO (bourbon, heering, rhubarb bitters and cherries). All four courses included in the chef selection were innovative and delicious. The bottle of wine turned out to be one of my favorite Zinfandels, too. We were both pleasantly surprised considering it was a Groupon. Oscar, our server, was attentive and on point, up to and including sharing plates and new tableware after each course -- on par with any fine dining establishment. Check it out. Street parking is fairly easy.

I’ve already told a couple friends about Two! Me and my husband went there for his birthday, I had previously bought a LivingSocial where you get the 5 course chef selection. The 1st course was bacon with cous cous and pesto, it was absolutely delicious! Second course was a walleye that was spectacular, my husband doesn’t even like fish but he thought this was the best fish he’s had. The third course was steak which was perfectly done. The fourth course was duck pasta which was absolutely delicious, it was our favorite dish, the duck was melt in your mouth! The fifth course was raspberry cheesecake which was good, especially the graham cracker crust. The staff was so friendly and informative! The host and the waiter were the best! We can’t wait to come back!
