I go out of my way to always eat here when in Chicago because the food is always outstanding. However, last Sunday's dinner was extra special as I asked about specific ingredients in a dish that was particularly amazing... and he told me that he would get me the recipe. When he brought the bill at the end of the night, he brought me the beautiful Salpicon Cookbook as well. Super nice surprise on top of a lovely evening filled with amazing flavors and gorgeous dishes!

I have been going here for years and it will probably be my last. The
menu doesn't change and I need to find a new venue for Mexican
cuisine. Also very disappointed with my wine and felt it was bad but
we drink it.

Wonderful service, food authentic and delicious, cocktails terrific. Our reservations were early in evening - restaurant was quiet and yet we were seated directly beside a family of 4 with 2 very young children - crammed in together. We were away for the weekend as a couple - trying to enjoy the 'kidless' weekend together. C'est la vie!
Server presented us with a beautiful complementary Salpicon cookbook at end of our dining experience - nice touch. Clearly very well respected restaurant - within an 1 or so - the place was packed - with 'regulars'.

Enjoyed everything especially the wine and cod entree'. It is sad that Salpicon will be closing on November 30th, It will be missed. The owners apparently sold the place and are moving back to their roots in Mexico.

I have had 3 (or is it 4) fantastic experiences at Salpicón, and I am so sad they are closing at the end of November. If you haven't eaten there yet, make the effort this month. It is a treasure, and its closing will be a real loss.

Dinner for four friends visiting Chicago. Service was excellent. Everyone enjoyed our meals and wine. We were surprised to receive copies of the restaurant's cookbook as we left. Very nice touch!

The most original and quality Mexican-style cuisine in Chicago. And amazingly good Margharitas.
