Sable has been our top 3 recommendations to anyone from or visiting Chicago. Unfortunately after our last visit this weekend, we won’t be back.

The seated portion of the restaurant in the back has since been cordoned off for private events only. The food menu has been cleaved by two-thirds and the quality was atrocious. A $40 chicken dish was ridiculously over brined and burned (see photo). First time I had brussell sprouts that were fried to a burnt crisp. Our server was apathetic and did little to show attention. The head server was a bit better, walking around tables to check on folks.

We won’t be back to Sable again.

I made reservations for the restaurant and no one bothered to tell me they were closed for private dining. We ate bar food and the service was atrocious.

The meals didn't come out at the same time. The bartender was surly and unfriendly.

Would not recognize our reservation on Open Table. The host claimed that we only reserved "space" but not an actual place to sit!

Wow this place used to be amazing. Now it is embarrassingly bad. Food not just bad, but down right awful. I'm not a complainer but this requires it. Cheese platter had the 3 smallest, thinnest pieces of cheese ever for $16. Charcuterie was almost as small and two the the items were inedible. Squash dish was a soggy over cooked mess. I've had better cheese balls from a fast food restaurant. I was embarrassed for the staff who did their best. It's clear they must have run out of money at this place and have no real chef. Until something changes just don't go.

This used to be one of our favorite spots....but chefs changed and it is now mostly a bar with an assortment of things to eat. The food was fine, but it wasn't the broad range of options that they used to have. (Whereas previously, we always had trouble narrowing down what we would order, we now had a bit of a problem putting together enough dishes.) My chicken, while reasonably tasty, we just barely recognizable as "fried chicken". The accompanying salad was strange. Moreover, the prices were a bit high for the food.

Bottom line. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't the previous Sable and we do not anticipate a quick return in a city with so many great places to eat.

Sable used to be a decent restaurant. When I reserved, I was not told that the restaurant had closed and was now a bar and appetizers spot. This was a big disappointment as well as the sub par food and service.

From the moment we walked in, the entire Sable team made us feel as if we were the only one's dinning there that day (Note, it was packed). The service, food, cocktails, and ambiance are all 5 stars!

Not the Sable as it was back in the day. The entire restaurant is closed. There is a limited menu that is served in the bar area which is now the only place you can eat in. No hostess, open seating. The food we ordered was very good however. The cocktails are excellent, but not nearly as good as I remember them when Mike Ryan was behind the bar. Too bad as this was one of the best spots in the city when Heather Terhune was in the Kitchen. The vibe is that this is a place on it's way out.
