Wonderful Ribs

We were looking for a place for a nice quiet dinner. We happened upon Chicago Bistro. It looked great and we went in for a meal. I had a steak stuffed with feta and spinach. It was wonderful except for the slice of processed cheese that was put over the top. It was not melted and totally... read more

Chicago have a really good choice of food avaiable on their menu, the food is reasonable good and it is a very convenient place to eat after you have done your shopping . The only let down was the service which is slow

Chicago's is a really nice bar/restaurant and has a number of really good dishes on offer. They have sushi on offer too but my sushi tasted a bit stale. Its safer to go for locally sourced food. they have a god assortment of drinks as well so something for everyone. It's on the pricey side as well so not somewhere... More

The Chicago Bistro is a great place to start off for the night. The drinks are a bit more expensive than at other places, but the atmosphere and the available cocktails are definately worth it.

Chicago's a great place to go to, if you are a very patient person and are trying to kill time. Of course it's situated in great location and a great spot if you looking for some night fun and good music, but don't go there to eat if you are too hungry- the service is terrible!!! The drinks flow quicker... More

This seems like a chain restaurant, and you sit upstairs overlooking a shopping court. It's an unpleasant atmosphere. The service is perfunctory and the food quite ordinary. I'd look for other options.
