Our party had a mix of adults and little kids. They put us in a great spot so the kids could enjoy bocce and the adults could chat. The food was delicious!

We had just arrived in Chicago and were still in our travel clothes with kids, two 16 year olds in tow. Our server rolled her eyes when our two girls just wanted to order small items off the kids menu. I ordered one of the most expensive items on the menu. Our server paid very little attention to us. Our plates were never cleared we were never offered refills and we had to flag down the manager because our ordered was cooked wrong. My wife and I are veterans of the restuarant industry and frequently tip 25-30%. We tipped 15% for only the second time in 23 years. Dont judge a book by its cover.

A favorite spot for lunch. Great patio dining venue but inside also comfortable. Shout out to hostess Evelyn who quickly spotted a view rings on the table left from glasses while she was seating us and quickly had the table perfectly clean.

Always great. One of our favorites for chic casual lunch in great urban setting. Fantastic patio dining. I love the burrata salad and my husband goes for the open faced salmon sandwich.

Had some friends visiting from Cape Town, South Africa. It was a great experience. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet Dale. The staff was very accommodating! We sat outside, the weather was perfect, Raymond Goodman was playing the saxophone. The ambience could not have been any better. They had a wonderful time. Even though visitors to Chicago wants to try pizza, we wanted them to experience something a little more contoured to the Table Bay Area in Cape Town. Pinstripes was the place!!! Always bring or recommend my friends to Pinstripes!

Service was very slow, not to mention the server was RUDE. We did not get our appetizer for nearly 20 minutes. When asked why the server obnoxiously informed us ‘that food needs to be cooked’.

We ordered Hummus platter and a dish that is prepared beforehand and does not need to be cooked. Basically, she yelled at me for asking her why the appetizer was delayed. When we finally did get the Hummus we could not even stomach eating it after such an abhorrent conversation with the server.

It was a horrible evening.

We kind of felt rushed by our server. He didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert and we did. When we went bowling the server was really attentive. That made the experience worthwhile.

Pinstripes is a local favorite, a big reason for reserving the restaurant. We'd hoped for a space on the patio overlooking Ogden Slip, but the weather didn't cooperate. It wasn't a problem. It's always fun to be there. This was the first time we'd gone there for Sunday Brunch, and we weren't disappointed. People had lots of options for a mid-day meal: a large omelette station, an area serving roast beef (yum!) along with shrimp and salmon. Other areas served pastas, bagels, fruits, and desserts. Guests also had a complimentary mimosa--nice touch! Although Pinstripes was full, it's clear staffers had spent time figuring out how best to present the food so that there were no lines. Our servers were attentive, cleared dishes quickly, and checked in that everything was OK. Brunch was a positive experience, and we'll be back!

The salads were great. The calamari was fried so hard it was inedible. The service was slow and sloppy. The restaurant was loud and smelled of liquid smoke.

Love stopping here for lunch. Too hot this time to sit on patio but inside is always comfortable in an urban chic setting. My favorite is the burrata salad with grilled chicken and my husband loves the open faced salmon sandwich. Food is always presented beautifully. Service was attentive.

We always make a point of hitting this brunch when we’re in town, with kids or without kids. The food is really good. The ambience is nice. The service is good. And if we’re with the kids, we make a one hour bocce reservation, as well. We’re not into sports but it’s just enough for a little fun and family laughs. We’ve had the food and desserts here when it was NOT brunch, and we were not happy. But the brunch?...Good stuff!

Nice brunch spot. Food was pretty good but could have been replenished more frequently so it was fresher. I enjoyed the mini waffles but the server was really stingy with the syrup. The view on the patio was really lovely.

The food is always delicious and fresh! My favorites are the salad with the vinaigrette dressing, the grilled zucchini, and the sausage and waffles! This is one of my favorite Sunday buffets. Amber was very attentive! Always refilling water when needed. Always asking if we are good! Thanks Amber for being at our service! Hope to See you next time.

We had issues with our bowling lane and they comped us an app
My friend had dietary restrictions, and our waiter went above and beyond to get her a special meal prepared since she couldn’t do brunch.
