Will definitely return! Convenient location, nice views, good food (salmon was fantastic), pleasant and accommodating service.
Only downsides were didn’t like one of our cocktails and service was a little slow but I think they are short-staffed due to the pandemic.
Not the place for a vegetarian to go. However, the experience was still great.
Outstanding lunch experience - the pre-fix menu is an amazing value. Everything I ordered was absolutely delicious!
I particularly enjoyed the Kale salad, spring onion soup, pork tacos, and smoked pot de creme
The service was terrible it took them hours to give us our food and rarely checked on us. The manager was rude and dismissive
This was a great place to go to for the price! The food was really good!
Love love love this place! Great service, great food, atmosphere, beautiful view, everything is ALWAYS perfect. Highly recommended!
Fabulous food! So great to go somewhere where the menu is different, creative, fresh and inspiring. Wonderful on all counts.
I loved EVERYTHING about Woodwind! Honestly, some of the best food and cocktails in the city. It’s truly a hidden gem...and more people need to check it out! D. E. L. I. C. I. O. U. S.
Outstanding hidden gem in the city. Woodwind offers fantastic value, delicious food and was one of the best places we’ve eaten at in awhile. Highly recommend!
Excellent food...I love around the corner and had no idea this existed. If I wasn’t moving out of Chicago, this would be a monthly visit. Chef says he will switch up the menu regularly....flavor combos are incredible and imaginative. Give this one a shot...
Hands down one of the best restaurant in the city. Food is to die for! Great view, great staff, and phenomenal food.
Woodwind is a hidden gem! Food and drinks were delicious. Beautiful views from the rooftop. Definitely recommend!
The burger and fries were awesome!
Super cute & quiet place. The views were so great & the food was so different!
The Woodwind was such a memorable time. The head chef and their staff created a warm, ambient, and fabulous food experience. All the food was high quality and so fresh and flavorful. The restaurant also gave one of the best deals for Easter brunch! I treated my mother to Easter brunch here and we got four courses for a great, competitive rate! We really enjoy the rooftop and basking in the sun with great food; that was also very creative and ingenious! I highly recommend this restaurant; a best in Chicago.
My favorite rooftop in Chicago! And all my friends now love it too! Thank you!
Stopped in for lunch on the roof. Our server was fantastic, as was the food (and the presentation!).
Great place, highly recommended
A hidden gem. Great place for a quiet lunch. The fixed price lunch was a good value and very tasty food. I would definitely like to eat here again.
The food was all really good. The service was great. They really went above and beyond. I will definitely be back.
Anniversary dinner. Food was excellent.
Overall Woodwind was great, but the service was very slow. We had to wait very long in between each course. We ended up asking for our checks before our dessert came out because it had been over 3 hours since we sat down. The ambiance and the food was very good though.
This was our second visit. Three of the four of us had the prix fixe dinner. The standouts were the house ricotta, chicken chicharron, brussel sprouts and pork belly tacos. The chocolate pot de la creme was out of this world. And the cotton candy surprise at the end is so much fun. Our server Oscar was the best. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Made my day at the hospital a great experience.
Excellent food, not the run of the mill - great waiter
and the prixe fix was quite a value !
We really enjoyed our time at WoodWind on Valentine's Day weekend. They had a prix-fixed menu with a really appropriate price tag and good variety. I felt some of the smaller plates/soup was a bit of an afterthought but overall still REALLY tasty, especially the main dishes. As a avid cocktail explorer-I appreciated the cocktail trio menu they also included as an option. I hope they continue this in the future. Flow was a bit bumpy (might still be working out some kinks), but the waitstaff was very respectful and friendly. Even though its winter-this rooftop restaurant still provides a classy, great date-night spot. Can't wait to go back when we can go outside on the balcony.
The restaurant itself is beautiful and is in an unexpected place being in Northwestern hospital. Was so happy to be going out after being inside for so many months. Service was slow and the food just was OK. Was hoping for better. I will still try it again in a few months maybe they just need time to get restarted again. They have a nice outdoor area to sit in so that will be nice in the summer months. We got hamburgers and scallops and they were just adequate nothing special. Will give it another try in a few months.
Great food & service

When you walk into the medical building you’re skeptical, but then you go to the 18th floor and Wow! Ambiance was amazing, decor was outstanding and then the food. You can tell the chef worked at a previous Michelin starred restaurant, it was exceptional. Each dish was better than the one before and the service was outstanding as well. The wine list is expansive and thought out and this is by far a superb dining spot for an exceptional dinner. You’d be missing out if you didn’t dine here, it’s memorable and I can’t wait to come back again month after month.
Food selection horrible
Good place for dinner! We enjoyed the food, the environment.
Great place to have a rewind after doctor’s appointment. Food and service were excellent. I will come back here again (even without Dr appt).
Excellent food. Very nice presentation and interesting flavors.
Excellent experience in difficult times. highly recommended.
Amazing food and drinks! Have been coming here since August, and always have a wonderful experience. Waiters are very nice, polite and make the dining experience even more enjoyable. Highly recommend this gem!
Sat us down inside during the new rules so we ending up leaving. Giving a good review since we didn’t actually experience it.
