Sushi | Lakeview / East Lakeview, Chicago

We were looking for a casual spot for dinner at the last minute on a Friday night. Heard Yellowtail was BYOB, got an immediate reservation through OpenTable, and arrived 15 minutes later. It took longer than expected for our table to be ready—over 45 minutes, actually. But restaurant staff was extremely attentive—they made sure we had chairs to wait comfortably and brought us appetizers on the house. Eventually we sat down to an amazing menu with delicious, quality food for a great value. Everyone was apologetic about the wait and made sure we had the best experience possible. The ambience and decor were great as well. Now that we know it’s there, we’ll definitely be going back! More

Everything was great with the food and the service but the only complaint is when I asked if it was possible to place an ice cream cake in the freezer for a birthday dinner I was told that it was possible but when the cake was brought out to us it was completely melted so apparently it looked like someone forgot and just left it out More

It was a perfect 70 degree day in Chicago and we wanted to sit on a patio. Made a 6:30 reservation and the patio was almost empty. Waiter was wonderful and personable. The burger happy hour deal is an amazing deal for $18- the burger feels like a fancy inn n out burger and the frites are crispy and wonderful. The burrata serving is extremely generous. Ravioli is not large but very “foodie” and worth getting to taste. Would recommend! More

Drew's offerings are varied enough that someone with dietary restrictions have no issues finding items on the menu. Dining on a Wednesday night means 1/2 price on wine, which is always a nice treat. Last night was my second time at Drew's and I am sure I will be back anytime I need to be at the Annoyance Theater a block or so away. More

The beverages were definitely the standout at brunch, but the food was certainly up to par. Beermosas may not be on every brunch menu yet, but they could definitely catch on based on the ones served in this Wrigleyville spot. The brunch options have something for everyone - from the vegan (vegan breakfast hash), to the indulger (ham & cheese French toast), to the hungover (biscuits & gravy) - each with a unique take on classics. Be sure to ask for a bowl of mocha coffee to go with your meal! More

We were early and the staff seated us. Just an indication of their attention and consideration. Food was well prepered and portions huge.

Everything was really great except the hostess was extremely rude and short with us. She barely took us to our table- just set menus on the table and pointed to it. Gave us extremely rude looks for the duration of our visit. Besides that- our server and the other staff were great and the food was delicious! More
