The food was amazing. The 5 courses was plenty. I’m not normally a dessert person but the Frontera Tabasco might be the best dessert I’ve ever had in my life. Our server Eric was very knowledgeable and gave great direction. Amazing experience.
Thank you for a lovely lunch! We had a great time. :)
Second special family birthday celebration at this wonderful place — transporting! A very unique experience!
Wonderfully inventive and delicious Mexican food. Wish I could have gone for dinner to try the tasting menu.
Seriously amazing experience! Great flavors and very thoughtful pairing. Our server Alfredo was beyond helpful. An amazing night!
Amazing-Very good experience and wonderful service.
We tried two of the three available full menus with wine flights. The food is out of this world. The wine pairings are perfect to highlight the extraordinary flavors in the food and characteristics of the wine. Staff was outstanding. Service a was excellent with just the right explanation of the dishes and wines. Unobtrusive and extremely educational. An amazing place.
Slow service. Dry fish. Noisy. The restaurant is adjacent to a busier restaurant with connecting door opening again and again with lots of noisy interference. Certainly not good for romantic evening. The tables are too close to have personal communication. Menu items were not warm. Overall it should not have a Michelin star.
This was an amazing dinner! Firstly, it's amazing how well the door between Topolobampo and Frontera works because the restaurant was shockingly quiet considering the noise at Frontera. Secondly the service was great! Our server was Eric and he knew the menu very well, was personable and very attentive without being overbearing. And lastly the food was amazing! We tried their winter beach tasting menu which was all seafood and was very well thought through. This is a wonderful place for a special occasion.
I really enjoyed the food and service. I met my son for restaurant week lunch and had a great conversation over a most interesting meal, just right for a lunch
One of the best meals I have ever had! I would highly recommend for a special occasion.
AMAZING! I took my boyfriend for his birthday and the entire staff left him a signed birthday card on the table. Very personal, exceptional service. Would gladly spend my hard earned money there again.
I've been wanting to dine at Topolobampo for years. I could quickly see why this restaurant has been a fixture in Chicago's dining scene for decades. Every course on the tasting menu we had was absolutely delicious and filled with perfect flavors. The margaritas were fantastic, and we each indulged in a couple. Then....we decided to peruse the wine menu for a glass to pair with our final courses, when our server strongly suggested a wine they were using for one of the menu pairings that evening. We agreed. It's funny, though not at all amusing, that our server didn't mention that the wine was $36 a glass. We were shocked and appalled to find when we got our bill that we'd indulged in $72 worth of wine! I loved this restaurant, and the food was so special, but we left upset by this poor experience. When the server sells a customer a glass of wine 3x's the price of other wines by the glass on the menu... the price should be noted. This was not right.
Always wonderful! Only offers tasting menu's but if you willing to try new things then you won't be disappointed.
This restaurant offers one of the greatest dining experiences in the entire world.... great night to enjoy the best of Chicago...
