Love LM

Had a great experience at LM. The setting was romantic, the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. The wait staff was helpful in picking out a great wine to go with dinner. I highly recommend LM.

Eat before you go to this restaurant or plan on eating at home afterward. Portions are very small. Wine prices shown on the restaurant web site are inaccurate - expect to pay more. Overall, a lackluster place to dine. This restaurant was a one time dining experience for us. There are too many other good Fench restaurants in Chicago to... More

We were staying at Hotel Felix and needed to grab a quick dinner before heading to the airport. The restaurant was empty. Even with no other patrons, the service was terribly slow and the servers seem disinterested. When the food did arrive, it was disappointing. I had the scallops and there was way too much salt. Disgusting! Don't go here.

We discovered this restaurant by a Groupon, but it has become a great favorite with us. The menu is inventive and interesting. They make changes all the time to their menu. The chef is wonderful. The restaurant seating is close together...more NY style than Chicago, but don't let that throw you because the service is excellent. Get on their email... More

It is wonderful to have such an excellent French restaurant in Lincoln Square. The offerings include a set menu and some a la carte dishes - not too many choices but appropriate for a small kitchen. The set menu is a good deal, and the dishes are well prepared. We went during a week night and there was only one... More

Had a wonderful dinner there this week! I was surprised at how small the restaurant was; one capable waiter took care of the whole restaurant! There were three of us, and we all different dishes to get an overview, and no one was disappointed. The scallops were absolutely bursting with flavor, my veal tenderloin was delicious. The apple tartin was... More

Whenever I feel like a trip to Paris, I can always visit LM Le restaurant and feel like I have visited France. The food at this restaurant is very well prepared and I have had many meals and all was perfect. When they began in business, they used to be open for brunch, but they are no longer open for...

My husband and I have eaten at LM many times, especially before concerts at the Old Town School of Folk Music. The restaurant is owned by a couple with years of experience and their personal touch is evident throughout. Stephan, who hails from Normandy, and his staff offer delicious, modern takes on French dishes. There is always a 3-course menu... More

Thank you,Groupon,for highlighting this 'downtown-quality' French restaurant on the north side. The superb service along with the fantastic menu made for a memorable evening. A delicious twist on escargot, tempura-style was followed by medallions of fresh scallops and for dessert, chocolate creme brûlée and a cappuccino....

I can't speak for the regular menu, but we tried the "three course" tasting menu Saturday. I've had tasting menus in restaurants many times, but this one was so small, that we felt we had not eaten dinner. It consisted of a starter of what was about two spoonfuls of mouse, followed by a rather fishy tasting .5 ounce piece... More
