Very good! We did the bottomless deal with brunch and found it to be a great value. You could mix and match drinks. Our server, Yazmin, was super attentive and kept the drinks flowing. Food was great!

What a surprise. Very close to the Newberry Library. Came here on a chance after a lecture and was pleasantly surprised. Bar is very nice and the dining area was well decorated. My friends and I had several different things and declared to be very good. I had the hamburger because it is the test. My wife had scallops that were done perfectly. The risotto was not overcooked and mushy.

Except for the fact that the maitre d’ didn’t bother to tell my guests that I had checked in and was sitting at the bar with another of our guests so we spent 45 minutes not being seated together or knowing what had happened, it was a nice evening. Decent wines by the glass, attentive waitstaff.

The crab cakes are wonderful, not composed of filler with a minimum of crab like so many places Service was attentive, with a floor manager following up. Excellent place to eat before the theater at Ruth Page.

We were seated at our reserved time. Service was perfect. Even though it was a Saturday night and busy, we were never rushed. The food was perfectly seasoned and cooked.
Would recommend to everyone.

Flexible and gracious when called about arrival delay of approximately 30 minutes after the scheduled time due to traffic detours and delays from nasty weather.

Entrance and first floor bar that looks like an old library/smoking lounge is a very best way to enter, although a bit confusing since I did not know I just needed to head upstairs for the restaurant hostess.

Seated right away. Table location ideal. Restaurant Week Prix Fixe menu offered good choices for a decent price (although not much different than just ordering a la carte).

Water was refilled frequently. Mushroom and leek risotto was excellent. Spare rib with polenta was cooked near perfectly. My cocktail was decent. Overall vibe was relaxing and not too stuffy.

Service and food were outstanding! My husband spilled a glass of wine and the staff not only replaced the glass of wine, but also spent a good amount of time making sure our jackets and coats were wine free! Also, you can't beat happy hour until 6:30 with great tasting apps and drinks for $7. Definitely will be back!

We had a great experience at Walton St this past Saturday for brunch. Food was excellent and noise level low enough for conversation. The lounge downstairs was a great cozy environment for drinks afterward on a blustery Chicago day. Our only concern was that staff seemed a bit confused and flustered that we wanted to have drinks in the lounge. At first I wondered if this was not allowed so I asked and let them know we were fine not doing so, but they assured me it was fine. Our server was great but again he seemed flustered and I kept feeling that I was putting him out, so we just had one drink each and left.

Hosted a work event with colleagues from all over the world. I wanted a restaurant that represented a Chicago neighborhood restaurant but in a place that was easy to reach from the hotel district. The evening was lovely and our server made the evening - even topping off the night with a champagne toast. Thank you for the great evening.

This is a great neighborhood restaurant!!!

The only problem is the lack of private niches for quieter dining AND THE NOISE LEVEL IN THIS BUSY RESTAURANT TO HORRIFIC!! We had requested the only location that can be quiet but when I called to confirm the day before as to our location, we were told we could not have that spot since they were service 22-people in that area....had we known earlier, we could have selected another restaurant that would accommodate the hearing loss of on person in our party. We worked out a time that is quieter with the manager, who, along with her staff picked the table that would be on the quieter side, but shortly after we sat down they place a large party near us so there you go for a quieter spot, which did not show ultimate sensitivity. Although we went when the restaurant opened for brunch, within an hour, the whole restaurant was rocking. My only other comment that the restaurant could gain from is that both the coffee and decaf are inferior to fine restaurants...I hope that part will change for $6.

Had a great time at Walton Street with my husband. We enjoyed a good meal and excellent service. The manager was also wonderful...came to check on us a few times and spent a few moments chatting with us and answering my questions. I'd recommend the Asian salad...excellent!!!

Great spot for Happy Hour - that Lounge is great! Only suggestion would be better music, more appropriate for the room, maybe frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, etx
