OUTSTANDING in every area

Three of us enjoyed the five course prix fixe menu for $190 per person. We chose the upscale wine pairing for the adults, which was worth every penny. Food, wine, service and atmosphere were all spectacular. We weren't sure how our 11 year-old daughter would like the experience or be treated in... read more

This used to be my favorite, albeit it way overpriced, brunch spot in downtown Chicago, and I also liked dinner here. However, my last visit (brunch) was extremely disappointing. A "high end buffet", the service was evasive and off-putting, not all good was or or prepared as ordered, and I will not be returning. Coupled with a bad hotel experience,... More

No words will do this place justice... it's something you just have to try for yourself. The food is amazing, the wine pairings are perfect. Asparagus foam? Sounds ridiculous and weird? Well guess what, without it the dish won't be perfect. Eating off a sand dollar? Yep, something you can do here and feel right doing it. Honestly, this is... More

If you like modern high quality cuisine based on tradition, you will be happy. The menu is impeccably cooked and presented and the wine pairings are faultless. Not only does the chef deserve his two stars (one might assume that he would already hold three, if he were French or Belgian), but the staff undoubtedly would be awarded three stars.... More

Sixteen is a first class and top notch fine dining experience. From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out everything is well coordinated.The service was really exceptional and everyone is friendly and helpful. You have only a few choices to make as far as menu items go and then everything else is on autopilot. The champagne... More

Phenomenal dinner, exquisite wine, and really outstanding food. We were very surprised by the humility and friendliness of the service. The team was knowledgeable, helpful and by no means pretentious, which you tend to face in places like this. Wine pairing selection was fantastic. Highly recommended, just don't come expecting a cheap meal ;) that being said you get what... More

Fifth time to sixteen and always been great. The menu changes which guarantees different combinations of flavor and food. The quality and service remains superb. A must if you are a local or a tourist. Definitely indulge yourself with the tasting menu.

I was there with my business team for lunch. The place offers some great food at decent prices. The best part is the view from their terrace... it's quite breathtaking !! The staff is excellent and will take good care of you. The food took just a little bit longer to arrive, but I guess that may be because the... More
