The dinner took a very long time to arrive, we were going to a show, and since it took so long we had to skip dessert. Worse, I had phoned ahead a told them we were out for my daughter's birthday (25) and they did nothing for her or even recognize that we were celebrating. I'd give them another chance, but if it were like this again we will not return.

I've been here twice. Once for a working breakfast meeting. I had the cheese blintzes with blueberry sauce. OMG so delicious. Just went again for dinner with a friend. We ordered and shared the baked feta and the avocado tacos. She is vegetarian and enjoyed both dishes. As a non-vegetarian, I also enjoyed both. We also had some of the seasonal cocktails and enjoyed them. They also validate parking from the Lowe's hotel parking garage.

Lunch with a friend and our daughters after cheer competition! Our waitress was very well versed on the menu. I was thinking the fried avocado tacos (which is an appetizer) she immediately said it would suffice as my meal. She was right! They tacos were delicious and so filling I was able to share with my friend. I also had a bite of the pizza my friend ordered - Ashburn Classic - which was just as tasty as the tacos! The waitress even suggested getting the giardiniera on the side because they would become even spicer when heated on the pizza. Our girls were very satisfied with the kids options - definitely kid friendly!

We sat in the bar and had Martinis before dinner - they were served in margarita glasses which was a bit odd and on the bar counter right in front of us there was a huge slab of bacon and a head of lettuce - unwrapped! When we inquired why this was the bartender said it was for Bloody Mary garnish... (move it off the bar - unsanitary.) Our bar tab for 4 cocktails was almost $50 with tip! After cocktails, our party of 4 was seated at a huge round table in the main dining area that made conversation almost impossible without yelling. (The table could easily have sat 8!) Our waiter kept pushing the 3 most expensive items on the menu, then he started rushing us to order because “the kitchen was busy” - we were there at 7 pm, no where near closing time. When we didn’t follow his menu recommendations he seemed annoyed. Two of our meals were wrong had to be sent back so we ate in stages, awkward. The food overall was mediocre especially for the price. This was our first visit and we’re not in a hurry to return.

Service was wonderful! Place was super cute and had great ambience. Unfortunately, the food was not great. A few of us ordered the chicken and was so salty that we could not even eat it. Very dissatisfied with the food overall which is a shame because would have loved to visit again.

My companion and I were there at 11 am. It was pretty dead in there. It’s nice that they validate your valet parking ticket. So that is free besides tip. I had the burger with fries. I didn’t care for the seasoned wedge fries. They didn’t taste that great. My friend got the breakfast buffet. It was $23 but it’s an upper tier hotel restaurant near the airport. So, I think it’s a standard price even if we don’t consider it a great value. Our server was very pleasant and appropriately attentive. Very nice women’s bathroom too. I’d be inclined to try another restaurant in the area before returning to this one.

The space is nice. Aviation themed. Food was pretty good. Enjoyed the appetizers better than my entree salad. Burger and pasta better. Service was spotty at best. Surprising, as it was practically empty when we arrived. Better price point than the Capital Grille next door. Overall, kinda forgettable.

The ambience, aesthetic aspects and even the restrooms were lovely and remarkably pleasing. The drinks were wonderful and the food tasty. The service was wonderful-at first. The busboy/man was so conscientious, capable and attentive. "Sid" the other server present eventually came to our aid. The problem was that "Maria", our server DISAPPEARED, midway through the meal! We were done with our entrees and anticipating the ordering of dessert and after-dinner drinks. Our server was no where in sight. She had 4 other tables in the process of completing their meals. She had vanished! We asked about the additional server, Sid, and we were told that "She was on a BREAK!!!!" In the middle of dinner service-on a Satuday night!???Who does that?!?! When she returned to the floor, approximately 20 minutes later, she never returned to our table. The alternative server, Sid, presented the check. I gave a 30% gratuity- 10% to the busboy/man; 10% to Sid and 10% only to Maria. I spoke to her and shared some advice about how she could have better handled the situation. We shared our concerns with the hostess, her response, " Yes,yes, She was on a break." The mystery of this management decision to allow any breaks during dinner service and in the middle of so many people's meals is confounding!! Unfortunately, this unexpected turn of events negatively impacted and colored our whole dining experience. We would certainly not rush back to this restaurant. There are too many options in this area. Very unfortunate.

We enjoyed a nice evening with our out of town friends who were staying by Ohare. So we thought we'd check this place out and we were so glad we did. The food was delis with good portions and plenty of choices. The mussels, flatbread and short rib were outstanding! Wine selection was good and we like our cab.
Although we didn't spend time in the bar section, it was large and they had a full bar. Hope to be back soon.

We ate here while staying at the Loews before an O'Hare flight. What a pleasant surprise. The food was FANTASTIC--cuban sandwich, burger, portobello tacos all highly recommended. Would defintely eat here again over one of the high-priced chain options also available at the hotel. Staff were friendly and service impeccable.
