Wonderful evening made even better by our server, Carlos. Carlos was fun, informative, and such a wonderful person. Request him if you can! The food was exceptional with a variety of flavor offerings. The building is very old, with a strange layout. The dining room is divided among several floors so be prepared to climb some stairs! Once you get over the weird building, and banquet seating, the experience was great. More

Was concerned that my ten year old would get bored but he absolutely loved the ice cream, make your own sundae. He also loved his filet minon cooked to perfection with fries and Mac and cheese. Watching him order all that makes me smile. And he enjoyed his welcome non alcoholic cocktail. Thanks maple and ash, it was his sisters bday but he had the most fun More

Our group enjoyed a Saturday brunch. We were in town for Hamilton and had an 11:30 reservation. We were seated promptly and greeted with smiles and table service. Our orders came very quickly; the restaurant was about half full. I really enjoyed the avocado chicken bacon sandwich; very fresh and tender. My friends ordered the traditional eggs Benedict, and one said it was the best she’d had. We enjoyed wine from an extensive wine list. All in all, delicious food, served quickly and professionally. Mega sports ambience, including a Big Packers wall! More

Wow! What a find. We had lunch here because we were going to the Best Buy at the Hancock Center after leaving class at the Northwestern Chicago campus and wanted to find a place for lunch on the way. They have the best grilled cheese! The restaurant is tucked in the back of a very nice boutique, so plan to shop after finishing your meal. This is on the short list of places for us to return. More

Nico was terrific. Both the scallop and stuffed calamari appetizers were outstanding. And the pasta and king crab cioppino were equally excellent. The portions were ample. The deserts were a great end to the meal. The service was outstanding, the ambience most pleasant, and, even though we were there for about 2 1/2 hours, we were never rushed or pressured to leave. I will definitely go back. More

We loved everything we got and there was very cool unique flavor pairings. The smoked beet (yes I wrote beet) tartare is a must! Go to rooftop for after dinner drinks. All around a great experience.
