Very romantic intimate setting with beautiful views. Food was delicious. There was only 2 waiters for the entire area but ours did a fantastic job of being friendly, quick and make good recommendations. Can’t wait to eat there again some day!

Terrible Thanksgiving buffet. The food was ice cold. The pies were served in tin plates and were mangled by unruly children. Advertised menu items were absent. The hostess was hostile. A polite request to move away from a large loud table to one of several other open tables was very begrudgingly accommodated. All this for $80 a person! We were robbed. Many other patrons complained as well. The only acceptable response to this wholly unacceptable meal is a refund, an apology and a promise to substantially improve in the future. There is no excuse for this overpriced failure.

Went there for Thanksgiving dinner. Food was cold. They used overhead heat lamps instead of sterno underneath. Cost $300 for 3 people and that did NOT include tip. Awful value for what we received. Very disappointed. I will never return.

The Thanksgiving buffet had a great shrimp and crab bar and salad bar. However, the sides were just warm and had been sitting for several hours and weren't appealing. The pies were okay but the crust stuck to the pie pan. Overall, it was disappointing. Especially when the price was anything but moderately priced.

Service was terrible and the food was cold. None of the heat lamps or hot plates/warmers were turned on so everything was cold. Would highly NOT recommend

I am very conflicted on my review. Although the food and drinks were good, the service was absolutely TERRIBLE!!!! Our waiter Tim was nowhere to be found at most times. He didn't even take our food order until us being seated for over 40 minutes. We were constantly looking for him and asking other servers to find him. Very disappointing! Then the bill comes, and it came with many questions, as they served the salad we ordered last. It was the last item to hit the table, even after we were eating out entrees. Then I also found it very sneaky to charge us all for the larger pour on our drinks without asking what we wanted. I would never assume to be upcharged without being asked. I was the driver and didn't even finish my glass because it was too much. The worst part about it, is that we were a party of 6 so his gratuity was automatically included. He would have never received that amount otherwise. Nice place, good drinks, but terrible disappointed overall.

Not the coziest environment. At one point they said their credit card system was down and asked for cash or offered to send us back 20 floors down to their ATM. Food menu was basic. I had the halibut, my gf had the filet. Both were meh. Honestly, it wasn’t bad but I have no reason to go back.

I have been looking forward to trying Baptiste and Bottle for a long time. It was a special occasion so we thought: why not! Though I made a reservation and the restaurant was mostly empty on arrival, we were sat in the very last table in the back corner as if we were the outcasts of the room. Not only that, but there was a table with three children against the wall--the closest seated table near us--and they were running all around completely ruining the atmosphere (not the restaurants fault but it was pretty apparent why this table was in the back of the room and it was a bummer to be brought back there knowing the chaos taking place). We sat down and no one came over for at least ten minutes making us feel a little unwelcome. We were quickly given water and then sat another fifteen minutes before our server came back over. Not exactly the experience we were hoping for...
That being said, the cocktails were interesting and there was plenty of bourbon/whiskey brands to choose from.

To be honest, most of this review is clouded by the worst service I’ve had in a restaurant in a long time. Went for brunch, sat down and in less than 2 minutes our waitress was at the table, normally a good thing. All she said on this visit: “So, are you ready to order.” No introduction or information, just that. Told her no we’d just sat down. She then left. Didn’t return for over 15 minutes. Ordered. Took another 15 minutes to get a latte and my wife’s juice didn’t show up at all. 20 minutes later the food came and I asked the food porter for her juice. He promptly got it for us. Waitress came back about 20 minutes AFTER we were done with our food (never during our eating it) asking if we wanted anything else, told her no just the check. In the hour and 45 minutes we were here, the waitress showed up 6 times total (including once to ask for the check, bringing the check and after taking 10 minutes to run my card). She probably spoke less than 50 words to us. I nearly walked out after she brought my coffee and not the juice in a 3 second drive-by (no words or acknowledgements of thank-you’s on our end). Food was pretty good. Atmosphere was quite quiet. Will definitely never return.

Attentiveness of waiter was excellent and much appreciated. The wait time to get our food was very timely. The view and aesthetic was beautiful and classy. Bottomless mimosas price is one of the best I've experienced and there's a bar of juices and fruit to customize them to your liking.

Such a bummer that it seems like it has slipped a bit. A group of us had been here before it was truly incredible. Amazing service, amazing food, and great drinks. This time the service was awful. No hello or anything when we got to our table. We hadnt even sat down yet when the server asked for our drink order. When we asked for a minute to get situated, she left in a huff. Later when we only had 3 out of the 4 people at our table, our server asked for our order. We again asked for a minute until our party was complete. Again our waitress left in a huff. We paid for "Bottomless mimosas and bloodies" but were often left with empty glasses for long periods of time. Also the mimosa and bloodies bar is a little gimmicky, more so than the traditional unlimited bloodies. Hopefully it was just a off day for the place but cant say I would recommend it any more.

Food is mediocre and so is the service. In fact, the service was horrible! Its location on a top floor of a very nice hotel did not really provide any bonus nor value.

It was my husband and I two year anniversary, so we chose this upscale and elegant restaurant. The ambiance was incredible as well as the view overlooking the Magnificent Mile regardless of seat. The presentation was breath taking and our waiter was very attentive although he had a small crowd. Needless to say we will return.
