    Terrific and inventive food...hostess was bubbly...GM was attentive and thoughtful...service was spot on, plates came quickly and timing between courses was good...would most definitely go back again and again.

    Had a great visit at the bar. Their happy hour is an incredible deal, and the regular menu offerings were impossible to pass up. Our bartenders were friendly and both the service and food were impeccable. If I lived in that neighborhood Split Rail would have all of my money. Go there asap.

    We went to celebrate a birthday, they were very kind and service was really great. Both drinks and food were very delicious and everyone had a great time. It's a fun spot, casual and nice change for us. Our vegetarian friend also had plenty of options. Would definitely go back!

    We tried this place because it showed up on a list of restaurants having gluten free options. It’s basically a big bar with unexceptional bar food. House nachos were OK. Crab dip tasted old to me. House-made bratwurst was juicy. Falafels were outstanding and flavorful. They never brought our steak tartare, we realized later. Cocktails and mocktail were good. Difficult parking and street construction. So we would probably not return.

    Redemption has been achieved! This was our second visit after what I felt was a disappointing experience just after opening. I can't recall exactly what the turn-off was (and, yes, I understand that new restaurants need a little time to work out the kinks), but I was in full-boycott mode and finally gave-in because my GF (who lives around the corner) has a huge culinary girl-crush on Chef Schor; so determinedly wants a cool, local place to be her regular hangout. I'm glad I finally relented...and extracted my head from my rear-end...because things have changed for the better! The GM, Michelle, is running a nice tight ship. We sat at the bar for dinner and the bartender, Greta, was awesome! Well-versed in her craft, a fellow Japanese Whisky geek and dispenser of gastro-mixological-andragogy; the drinks were great, the food fan-girltastic and an excellent value overall!

    Nice neighborhood place. Wish the menu was broader and the food better. Not bad not surprisingly good. Slow service and ran out of certain foods during the middle of brunch. No food or bread on the table while waiting for delayed brunch food was not appreciated.

    Food and service were great. The loaded baked potato gnocchi was my favorite! Restaurant was very loud, difficult to hear the person across the table.

    We had a great experience at Split Rail. Started with the Maryland Crab Dip, then the Leafy Green Salad. Both delicious. Got even better with the Potato Gnocchi which was unique, amazing and delicious. Then had the Reimagined Fajitas for a final dinner course before sharing the Bread Pudding with a beautiful sherry. Service was excellent from McKenzie.

    Food was fine. Wine, not great. We asked our server twice if we should stagger our order so that our food wouldn't come out too fast. She insisted that she would pace/course it. Of course listening to her was a bad idea and all courses came out rapid fire. Highlights were the potatoes and... honestly I forget because everything came out at once. Glad I went once, repeat trip unnecessary. Also it got progressively louder so I couldn't hear my friends talk 2 chairs away.

    Went with another couple we hadn't seen in while - ordered seven different dishes, 3 desserts,3 cocktails and a bottle of wine. The bill came to$110.00 a couple WHAT a deal. Our waiter was very good, the food was tasty and there was a lot of energy in the room. Our favorites: loaded baked potato gnocchi, green leafy salad, beef tartare, fajitas and the cheese cake. I live in Streeterville so it was a bit of a trip.. The quality of the food and the price was so worth the trip.

    High marks for drinks, fritters with carrot humus (outstanding), fajitas, and chocolate tart. The salad was over dressed. Just be forwarded - very small portions.

    The drinks were great, the food was disappointing and overpriced for the quality. Im not quite sure what they’re going for but it seems to fall short. It’s a bar without any beers on tap in Chicago...
