Spanish | South Loop, Chicago

Mercat a La Planxa is a solid place for both intimate or group dining experience. The food was really good. The service was attentive. Price point is a little high for what you get. We ordered a salad, 3 seafood tapas, 2 small bites and a pork tapas and the bill comes to about $140 without any drinks before the tip. The scallops and octopus were our favorite 2 dishes. Bacon wrapped dates were tasty as well. More

Seafood | South Loop, Chicago

Great experience! We had lobster, steak and sushi! All were amazing. Had the chocolate cake and ice cream. The chocolate cake was extremely dry and the ice cream was crystallized as if it had been in the freezer for a looong time. However the week Prior I had their tiramisu and it was SUPERB! will never get the chocolate cake again! But will definitely come back because everything I’ve had at this restaurant has been superb (with the exception of the choco cake and vanilla ice cream) More

This lobby restaurant is set up a little confusingly, but once one moves past the coffee shop, the restaurant is nice. The staff is excellent. It is loud, but they are efficient and with online reservations, this is a great business lunch location. My colleague's lamb burger was apparently very good. My kale caeser with salmon was competent but was fairly bland and unimaginative (and also didn't have any traditional ceaser features like anchovies). Overall, it fits the purpose - quick business meals - very well. More
