About

Reverie is a must for all things drinking, dining & socializing. This River North hotspot is where sports and food coexist in a way that is innovative, upscale and approachable. Created by a local group of dedicated tastemakers and an investor lineup of top Chicago sportscasters that includes Lou Canellis, Ryan Baker and Kip Lewis, Reverie aims to bring to life the “impractical idea” that food and entertainment can bond in a way that is fresh and sophisticated. The eatery offers gourmet, regional American fare cultivated by Rodelio Aglibot (aka the “Food Buddha”) and a top-flight mixology program.

Made my reservation for Reverie on OpenTable, received confirmation of my reservation. Arrive at Reverie on a Wednesday at 5:30PM to discover the restaurant was closed with no explanation. Call their number and get their "we are currently closed" message, but the message goes on to say that their regular business hours for Wednesdays is 3PM-2AM. Went somewhere else, won't try to come here again.

This was the single worst dining experience that I have ever had. The staff was incredibly rude after our large party waited for over 1.5 hours to receive our food and some not getting their food at all. The staff tried to shift the blame on our party that they had "brought out all of the food, but someone else at the table must have eaten it." The manager was even worse. When I discussed the situation with him, his immediate reaction was "let me get you a shot." Assuming that free liquor would smooth over the situation when the entire bill was $300+ and the food was not only untimely, it tasted bad. I had high hopes for this place, but needless to say it left me wishing I had gone to the hot dog stand down the street. Would highly discourage anyone from wasting their time at this place.

Always great for watching a game and eating good food that isn't bar food. Good menu.
Thanks.

Had high hopes for Reverie, yet it felt like a cheap sports bar. The food was average at best- greasy and fried. In the salad I had, the onions overpowered any other existing flavor. Service was pleasant, but sometimes hard to find. For dinner, I would not return. For a beer and to watch a game, I'd consider it.

Terrible vibe. I most likely would never come back to this restaurant. Maybe Saturday night is an off night but this place was lame, and was led astray by a favorable Yelp page.

The service here was embarrassingly bad. Pathetic. They were out of almost every single beer too. They have a lot of taps but were completely out of everything. The staff was not accommodating in any way and it look 20 minutes just for our server to bring back our drinks.

Great upscale sports lounge for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Fantastic food & not your average sports bar or restaurant.

Waitress would not answer questions accurately. She gave vague answers like she didn't have a clue as she was walking away from us. There were three bartenders while the bar wasn't too busy, none of whom came out to help her when she got a "little busy". The food was not worth coming here to dine again 👎

I specifically ordered through opentable so that I would get a good seat for the Empire viewing. When I arrived with my party, they had an outside table waiting for me which was far from a good view of the TVs. I complained to the manager and he said it is based on availability. I thought when you order in advance and you hold a party, people should have inside tables to view the screening. He did say my party and I could stand at the crowded bar. I was able to find a nice bus boy to help me find two bar stools. It was very noisy and the food was not noteworthy. In addition, there were not many specials for food or drink.

Some of us enjoyed our food; others did not. We asked for a specific football game to be on and the staff could not find the iPad that controlled the TVs. One wait staff even suggested we walk upstairs to find the manager as he probably had the iPad. Good place for appetizers.

Reverie is so fun! The atmosphere is brilliant if you are looking for an upbeat happy hour spot. The drinks are a little pricey but absolutely worth it. If you're there when DJ Uneek is playing, you're going to have a great time!

There are a few gems at Reverie, we tend to look for them when we arrive. One waitress in particular "Elle" is our "go to" person. We know that she will be knowledgeable of the specials, the ingredients and she knows how to enter/handle special requests or dietary requirements.

There are also two bus buys that are outstanding, friendly and observant. I wish I could remember their names but they are failing me now. Our group is a regular for lunch, maybe two to three times a week and they remember us and our particulars - great quality.

Then there is a particular waitress that is lacking personality. Her attitude is that we are bothering her; like it is an inconvenience to ask specifically for what we want. She is never flippant or mouthy, it is definitely her facial expressions that give her away. If we see "Elle" and another newer waitress (can't remember her name at the moment either), we will ask to be seated in their sections.

Overall, great place and the bartender BJ (I think) is outstanding!

We reserved a big table at Reverie for a hockey game. The food was very good - I had an excellent skirt steak, my GF had a salad, and we had chicken nachos (good, but small and not enough "stuff" for all the chips) and artichoke appetizer. The service was pretty good, but there were times when the waitress was a long time between visits - In addition, there wasn't a bourbon list, so we had to guess / ask from memory one by one to find one we wanted. Everything seemed a little overpriced; I dropped $140 on two smaller apps, two decent dinners, 6 beers, and 2 whiskies. Not the price I would expect.

Love this place. I can get sushi and other fun options while watching the game. Feels like an upscale neighborhood place. Prices are a little on the high end, but still love it.

This is the chef that opened my favorite restaurant, Sunda - so definitely have the brussel sprouts salad! Menu is interesting, food is very good. Tuna poke and lobster slider are excellent! But this is primarily a sports bar. There are even tv monitors in the booths. Atmosphere and menu are a mismatch.

Asparagus temporary okay but wouldn't reorder, kale Brussels sprouts salad great, must try. Mahi mahi and grilled shrimp salad very good. Would reorder. Too full to try dessert
