Suprisingly good breakfast!

We usually do go to a hotel we're not staying to eat, but this place got really good reviews so we decided to check it out. For starters, the coffee is really good. I had the beef and cheddar omelet that has pot roast inside. It was really delicious! The service was great and the atmosphere was... read more

LOVED the live music on Sat night, that it stays open late, and easy to get to from anywhere in the city. Also, fantastic drinks, and the food is good. Get a corner booth to enjoy people watching too!

This is the 2nd time I have had a chance to eat here! Great food, changing menu's, great beers, nice wine selection! The food was awesome, we had three different apps, and drinks - service was OK, not what you would expect or what I experienced previously. (Thursday night). I would go again, in spite of the service, which is... More

I was there during the St Patrick's Day celebrations and found the place by accident. Good burger, good bar service, and the had a small quiet alternative rock group play in the front that added to the experience, yet did not distract the ability to have a conversation. I liked it very much for just a small place that isn't... More

We stayed at the Wit Hotel and came here twice. Once for dinner and drinks, and the next day for lunch. Both times we really enjoyed our food, and at lunch there was a guitar player who sang and was very entertaining. The poutine and charcuterie plate were both delicious and good for sharing.

So after numerous looks for a burger joint we stumbled across this. Definitely difficult to find during St. Patty's day weekend. Well stored away in The Wit hotel is this restaurant. The entrance is actually to the left after getting into the hotel. It is nice that if the wait is long they will text you when your table is... More

We stayed at the Wit Hotel, and opted to eat at the restaurant attached to the hotel, rather than go out. Great move. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. We sat at a table in front of a TV screen featuring a fireplace, which instantly made us feel at home. The waitstaff was attentive, and our drinks were frequently replenished.... More

Stayed at the Wit in Chicago and received breakfast vouchers as part of Hilton Honors program. Wow - what a breakfast! Saturday morning is brunch - outstanding. We had the french toast and fried chicken and waffles. What a treat. The french toast was the best my wife has ever had. The fried chicken and waffles was a wonderful take... More

Had hotel breakfast here. Really tasty food, good menu, good atmosphere. Service was slow, and disappointed in $4 coffee. But food was great and would definitely return for more meals, either breakfast or dinner.
