    Enjoyed listening to live music - Sundays 12:00-2:00pm. Excellent breakfast foods. Quiche was good but unfortunately burnt on the bottom. Lovely place to go before a Sunday performance at the Goodman Theater.

    Celebrated our anniversary with a dinner here (and show at the theater). The cocktails were incredible. The Noble House came out with an applewood chip on fire sitting on top of the ice cube. The burger and the walleye were both cooked well and tasted great! Server was very friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought out a hand-written card for us and a free small pour of champaign.

    This was my first time here, and I only chose it because I was going to The Goodman. It turned out to be a very good experience. Our waitperson was personable and attentive. He did a great job of describing the food. The oysters were some of the best I've even had, and the Halibut was outstanding. I really never order dessert, but the Root Beer Float Cake was just too enticing, and it did not disappoint. My only complaint would be the noise level. It was not conversation friendly, but that may have been due to the large group of rowdy guys seated next to us. Will definitely return.

    Food was underwhelming. Not bad but not what we expected. Limited menu which is fine but when you do that the meals better all be good. Probably will try other restaurants in the area the next time we go downtown.

    Great service, excellent for conversation in a bustling area, the street noise stayed outside. The balls of prosciutto and cheese were an oustanding appetizer. Very good wines available. The salmon in broth with veggies was served at perfect doneness, with an interesting “hat” of paper thin crispy dough, a real winner!

    I got there and was able to be seated without my entire party being there which I loved. My friend ended up being over an hour late but the staff did not rush me to order nor did they bother me about the time which I thought was so gracious for a restaurant downtown Chicago. Once my guest did arrive, they served us immediately. The food came out really quickly and was amazing. I highly recommend the truffle fries, Chicago fried chicken, and brussel sprouts.

    We were excited to try this place after finding it on open table. The food was good but what could have made this better was the service. our waiter was s.l.o.w.. if we need napkins or straws it took him 15 minutes. We ordered delicious wine but was never offered any refills or even if we wanted another glass . Fries were cold and after waiting another 15 mins, I was able to get his attention. Fries came after the rest of my food was completed. I asked for a cesar salad they gave me the salad of the day. I told him and he said ok I’ll bring you a cesar I told him not to worry about it because i didn’t want to wait another 15 mins. When I got the bill the salad was on my check.. I had to ask him to remove it because I didn’t eat it. GOSH

    The food and service were excellent. Even though I was a solo diner, I was treated well, seated promptly, and given a nice booth. The steak was cooked perfectly and the martini was made exactly what was asked for. I would definitely come back next time I'm in town.
