The menu is limited but Oh how I wish I had a large enough stomach to try all of it. We started and finished with a delicious Vodkas Smash each and we shared the Fennel & Apple Salad. Truffle Pasta and Gunthorp Chicken. It was simply delicious. We will want to visit again!

Seriously. I was hemming and hawing about picking a great restaurant in Chicago for our one nice dinner on a 36 hour business trip. Chicago has so many great restaurants, but this will be at the top of my list. First of all, our server was fantastic, I wish I remembered her name. She was our trusty sherpa on the... More

Wonderful and varied menu, great service! Environment was a little dark, we ate in the basement, but we adjusted and enjoyed! I would definitely like to go back and sample more of the eclectic menu! Everyone in the party of 7 raved over there meals!

this place has more of an intimate atmosphere, dark and moody, I love it. The food, and I have tried at least half of the menu items by now, is always very tasty. Many of the items have a neat but not over the top twist to them. The cocktails are also very tasty. Check this place out.

We stopped in for an after business dinner and really enjoyed our food, drinks, and service. The menu is not large and can challenge those who do not necessarily understand some of your less common preparation techniques. The meal was very good and one of my guests said their chicken dish was the best they had ever eaten. The outside... More

Met a colleague for drinks after work. Small bar but great craft beer selections. Friendly bartender. The owner has several other well regarded establishments in town. Good vibe.

Knowing that this restaurant was Michelin rated gave me a very high expectation, but I can tell you that they blew away my expectations! They were one of the greatest meals ever. The Bone Marrow and the Foie Gras were delightful and the Pork Belly was the best ever. The piece de resistance was the service and the cocktails. They... More

Love this place. Service was tops, server suggestions are right on. Cocktails crafted perfectly. Best beef tartar I have ever had. The whole boneless chicken with roast garlic was great. Had one problem with an appetizer but it was replaced and the staff did a great job on recovery. Things happen. If you go walk around. And check out the... More

And boy are they great at this bar ! The bartenders really know what they are doing. Dont much care for measured pours when i just get scotch on the rocks though. Chintzy cheesy move in my opinion.
