Pre/post Theatre
Casual
Located in the heart of the theatre district in the Chicago loop, we are located in the lobby of the 70 W Madison building. Whether you're looking for the perfect spot for your power lunch, happy hour, private event or pre-theatre dining we have the perfect space for you!

We believe in the long-term benefits of good food. We invest a little more time sourcing quality ingredients that are sustainable, locally farmed and hormone and antibiotic free.

We also value the short-term result of a fabulous meal. Our chefs spent a lot of time creating a menu stacked with options so fresh and delicious, our customers have to invest a few minutes of their own to make some difficult decisions!

We know that time is money, our team is excellent at discerning when our customers want to linger with their clients until the contract is signed, or when they need efficient service so they make it to the theater on time.

The server was so inept that she tried to charge my card twice with two different amounts. The card was declined. I gave her another card that went through.
I called my credit card company regarding the first card and they said they put a fraud alert on it due to suspicious activity at Stock and Ledger in Chicago. So generally a nice place but the server was odd the entire meal.

Except for the fact that I took my family to the restaurant and they were closed everything was fine ! I guess I will need to switch to a new service. You only have on job and one service. Dropping the ball on reservations is not an option the way I see it. -MR

We dined before Hamilton. Food was delicious. Service was good and smooth, never felt rushed and got out in plenty of time to make our show. Highly recommend the baked goat cheese appetizer.

Despite our early (5:45pm) reservation, we sat for almost 10 minutes before a wait-person approached us to take drinks orders, and she was not even supposed to be working our area. Granted, we were seated in a partially-obscured back area, but that should not be a reason for neglect. Then our drinks were delayed, as we were told that the bar-person was swamped. To their credit, wait-person and management comped our dessert, but a half full restaurant should not experience these kinds of glitches. Food was decent.

Possibly because it is a little off the street, and people may not know it is there, Stock & Ledger provides a nice quiet environment for a mid-week business meal. The food is very good, and the waitstaff is very professional. The Bacon Risotto is excellent, and my colleagues enjoyed their meals as well. I'll return again soon, I am sure.

The food was good but the service was horrible. We were a party of 9 on a Monday and there were 3 other SMALL tables seated. We had to ask for every part of the meal: beverages, menu, to place our order, to get the check. It literally took one hour from the time we we asked for our check until the time we left the restaurant. 3 people didnt get their meals timely and 1 was completely incorrect. We asked for it be seperate checks but it ahould not of taken that long. You were not busy at all. We will not come back.

The food was good as it seemed fresh, but the portions were small and from a value perspective, it was expensive. For the two of us, having a chopped salad and a cheeseburger and then one domestic beer and a glass of wine, it was almost $60 with tip. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.

Great service and food. Location is ideal for theaters in the area. We were there Tues after Labor Day so was not crowded and had plenty of time for enjoyable meal and made it to Hamilton in plenty of time around the corner.
My wife had the lamb which was very tender and tasty. I had the pork tenderloin which was somewhat dry and overcooked. However the surprise dessert they had for our anniversary celebration was very good.
Would certainly recommend for drinks and dinner before the theater.

Stock & Ledger was fun and perfect location before our show . However, the office building location detracts from the ambiance. The waitstaff and host staff were fantastic. The drink was very watered down and the appetizer used prosciutto that seemed either old or still thawing from being frozen . The entree was a little stark and a bit undercooked for my liking of salmon but the rhubarb crisp dessert made up for it. Overall it was a good dinner. We were just excited to be going to Hamilton.

We had a great experience for a pre-show dinner. A bit noisy in the main room, so we asked for a table in the "patio" in the lobby/atrium between the main room and the street, usually for happy hour guests. What a great space. Server Jacqueline is first rate, knowing the menu down to the taste and alcohol content of each of the three ciders. I went with the risotto, a longtime favorite. It was the best I've had in the US (except for maybe my Italian immigrant grandmother's!). We'll be back.
