    Nice place for a business lunch. Service seemed somewhat impersonal but I realize the challenges of staffing and the busy lunchtime crowd. Nice menu selection. Food was good but nothing exceptional. Our food orders do come out very quick.

    Although it had been more than a while since I had been here, I never forgot the service, the ambience and the food that I had enjoyed! The restaurant is absolutely beautiful (it went through a makeover) and the service is exceptional! And, the food -- well -- let me just say that it was pleasing to my eye and my palate! I had the Chicken Pot Pie and Charred Brussel Sprouts! These dishes were seasoned to perfection and were both scrumptious! My co-worker had the Texas Chili (special that day) and Midwestern Cobb salad, and she enjoyed both her dishes! Lastly, we had the Butter Tart for dessert and it came with ice cream. It was amazingly delicious! Do yourself a favor and stop by one day when you feel like being pampered! You will be able to take in the ambience, receive good service and eat well! And, while you are there, ask to speak to Piper, the Chef and Owner. She is an absolute delight and will talk to you about, all things, food!!

    Food reviews were mixed at our table. Some of us had excellent food. Others thought their food was fine or good. The cauliflower salad appetizer was great. The desserts were excellent especially the mango sorbet. The service was friendly but not always knowledgeable about the menu. We were seated in a quiet open area which was very relaxing.

    A solid restaurant that delivers a good meal for the money. Good service and well located for opera and ballet as it's right across the street from the civic opera building home to the Lyric Opera and Joffrey Ballet.

    I went for happy hour like it said on the website. Turns out they weren’t offering happy hour. The food and drink was average on top of that. Picture of the burrata: it was quite plain and needed more flavor. Maybe a fig jam?

    Good selection of draft beers on tap - especially Guinness! Appetizers reasonable selection and a good value. Their Risotto is the star - among we have eaten anywhere. Finally, the waitstaff is efficient and pleasant without being overbearing. Finally, it is right across the street from the LYRIC OPERA - do we have to say more!

    The waiter was not very attentive. And, when he did come to the table he gave us odd looks as if our request for one refill on a diet coke was an imposition. I was never asked if I wanted a refill on my ice tea. And, even though he volunteered that he would bring us two waters he never did. He also forgot to give us silverware. We both left a 20% tip, but the service did not merit a 20% tip—we are hoping he shared it with the bus staff who did more work than he did. I also hope when I return, I don’t get this waiter again.

    The service was impeccable from the moment I stepped in the door until the we walked out after dinner. The cocktail was excellent; the food was excellent; the wine selections were very good. The location across the street from the opera house made for a relaxing dinner before the performance.

    Totally disappointing evening. Appetizer (recommended by waiter) was bland, over-fried, uneaten. That fact went unnoticed. Refused to serve a side of fries without an order that included it. 3 dessert options and the one we chose was out of stock at 7 pm. No sugar or cream offered with coffee snd tea. Worst of all, I indicated on open table that it was a birthday celebration and neither acknowledgment nor question. They gave me a 10$ coupon when I spoke to a manager.

    Close to some sight in the Loop, food was expensive for what it was; my friend was talked out the chicken sandwich because even the waiter thinks it's too hot.
