Levi was excellent. Very helpful with his service.
5 stars for this fine server.
This was the first time I’ve dined inside in a very long time. Summer House has been on my list to try for a while and it did not disappoint! From the sunny decor to the great cocktails and food, I will definitely return!
Consistently delicious brunch/meals. We took the family here because SHSM is consistently amazing and they delivered, yet again. Great burrito, love the brussels salad... can't go wrong with any item!
Everything was great.
Jaqueline did a great job taking care of us.
Felt super safe!
Love the food here--it's dependably delicious. Friendly staff, and not long waiting times.
Delicious and beautiful place to go, specially in the winter, you can feel the warm in the ambience! Wonderful staff!
great local place
Always love going to Summer House! The food and drinks are delicious and the desserts are even better!
Great food,service, and venue.
It was slightly cold but great experience.
Made a reservation for Summer House yet I was sat in a completely different restaurant (Stella Barra) which was practically empty except for ToGo orders waiting to be picked up. Through the course of our brunch I was able to watch, for my viewing pleasure, the staff attempt - unsuccessfully to seat others guests in the completely empty/completely different restaurant as some of the guests confused & refused to be sat there (good for them, I should’ve done the same) and I understand trying to maximize seating capacity during covid restrictions but I rarely go out and if I make a reservation for a restaurant I’m a firm believer in being sat in that actual restaurant and not the failed concept next door that clearly no one wants to be in as it’s used for overflow for the mildly successful restaurant next door. & to make matters worst I forgot the Bloody Mary at Summer House / Stella Barra is trash and ordered it in my confused state.
Had a great time celebrating daughters 16th birthday!
A friend and I made a reservation on Saturday 2/20 morning for a 9:30 breakfast. We arrived at 9:25 and when we arrived, it was bright and colorful and looked really nice (just like the pictures online). However, with a plethora of available tables open, we are sat in the back of the back room. We walked by multiple kitchens and were sat in the corner by an exit door under a fake roof where it clearly can transition to outdoor. There was a single other table in there and the vibe was dead and dark. The service was okay and the food was okay as well. Nothing to complain about. I asked someone where the restroom was and an employee told me “go into Summer House and make a big U-turn.” Was I not in Summer House? I made a reservation for Summer House and got sat in the slums of the building. When I was leaving, the music overhead changed and the actual Summer House was bustling and bright and looked like so much fun. Why would the music be different if it was all the same place? Overall, food was okay, but the atmosphere killed the whole thing.
COVID distancing and the high ceilings make Summer House a safe pick. The food is fine. Nothing spectacular, but you will leave satisfied.
Sat in the enclosed back patio of Stella Barra. The ambiance was great, warm, inviting. The food was great.
Always great food and service! The atmosphere is so nice to be in when it’s cold outside..the sun shining through in the Vitamin D room is always uplifting.
The service and food was outstanding. Everything was socially distanced and felt super safe.
Made me feel like it was summer in Chicago! The dining ris so bright and airy that you almost feel like you’re sitting outside. The tables used are well spaced so social distancing is well done. Service was efficient and pleasant and the food tasty. I had my “usual “ Summer House Cobb Salad. I requested a few items be left off and a few added. The server was obliging and my salad arrived exactly as requested. Washed it down with a delightful Rose from the Loire Valley. Can’t wait until I can actually sit outside here!
Good food and great cocktails! Food came out really fast.
Waiter was awesome!!!
Great spot. Great food, great service, nice open area for seating.
Beautiful place, love the scenery and the natural light coming through the ceiling. The staff was friendly and the food delicious. Felt safe with the covid precautions as well.
We had a great time! Food was amazing and great portion sizes! Our waitress was very hospitable and accommodating.
Great good food
good food, good setting, good staff, would definitly return.
Our server Levi was personable and efficient. With the mask mandate, he let us know up front he would limit approaching the table and made us feel comfortable addressing him when we needed something. He had great drink recommendations, as well. All of us were craving pasta, and each got a different dish and we were all very satisfied. will definitely be back!
Understanding covid restrictions but we made a reservation at Summer House. We were seated in the back of Stella Barra (the next door Italian pizza). Not happy to be stuck in a totally different area. Part of the reason for going there was the ambiance. There was none in the back room of the pizza spot. The waitress wasn’t very nice either. Guess she didn’t like walking from one restaurant to another.
Stella Barra has always been a favorite restaurant for me and now that the menu is the same as Summer House on the other side, I have far more choices while sitting at the bar.
Don’t come here for pizza. All else good
Great food! Great Atmosphere! Great location! Great service! we went there to celebrate 2 peoples birthday, they gave us a big cookie and ice cream to share. I will definitely go back there again.
