Located just steps from Michigan Avenue in the heart of Chicago's thriving Streeterville neighborhood, Sayat Nova is a cozy, romantic enclave tucked back from the city's urban sprawl. Since 1970, we have offered Armenian cuisine that presents a slightly earthier variation on typical Mediterranean fare.

I am a regular and have been coming at least every month for 2 years. The service is always great and the food is consistent. Keep up the great work guys!

My husband & I went on a Saturday at 1:00. There was no one else at the tables but there was 4 guys at the bar that were loud and obnoxious. We sat & ordered the sampler appetizer - it was good. But unfortunately the guys at the bar ruined the experience for us. We decided we really didn't need to hear about their big egos and decided to leave. Our server was gracious as we explained that we would come back & give the place another try. I didn't get the feeling that the guy behind the bar really cared. The guys at the bar were disgusting. If this had been a dive bar I could have understood, but lunch time on a Saturday to have 4 drunks at the bar that I don't understand. Not sure if we will go back as it left a bad taste

Wonderful ambience! Lantern lit and quiet. The food was delicious and came out very quickly. Service was a little slow but a huge party came in and it was Saturday night. I absolutely recommend it!

Having visited Sayat Nova many times I can say we've never been disappointed with the quality of their food or service. A pleasant quiet dining experience. Love the fresh flowers!

We started with the mezza sampler choosing the baba, taboule, and jajic. They were all good. For dinner I had the sarma platter. While the grape leaves were tasty there was about a quarter inch of standing water in the plate which I assume came from microwaving them. The stuffed eggplant was very dry and very flavorless.

It might be a good place for appetizers but I wouldn't eat dinner here again.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. The food is consistently good and there are a lot of choices to please everyone. The service is great, it is comfortable and cozy and not too pricey!
