Got a deal from Travelzoo and went there with a friend. We had to wait for another 14-17 mins for our sandwiches after we finished our appetizer (salmon sandwiches which are not that hard to make right?) The calamari is pretty good. The waitress refilled our water only once.. I was really thirsty after the meal... probably will not go... More

Went to IPO for breakfast today. We were staying in the W Hotel so it was convenient (inside the hotel). The service was really slow but there was also a large group near us so perhaps that had something to do with it. The food was ok, but not worth the price. It was a typical hotel breakfast. We went... More

Stopped in here for breakfast while staying at the Central Loop Hotel nearby. Had the HUGE fried egg sandwich, which they were happy to include egg whites only for me. Great service, food was delicious, will definitely be back.

Smack in the centre of Chicago's business district is this ultra-cool restaurant (part of the W Hotel). Great service and delicious food. The tables are spaced far enough to allow serious business talk while still feeling the energy of the room. Highly recommended. Do book a table. They made me feel like a VIP!

We've eaten at this restaurant once before and found the food good as well as the service. The ambience is hotel restaurant ambience but fine. We booked a lunch here earlier this week for today, prior to attending theatre. Got a message from them yesterday telling us the meal would have to be taken in the lobby or bar as... More

The title tells it all as we really enjoyed our experience with the IPO restaurant. We love to eat breakfast and this was a great breakfast. The wait staff was excellent and the quality of the food was wonderfulo.

Food was pretty good, but would have been nice if we had a waiter who wanted to come over and explain the dishes as I had no clue what I was actually putting in my mouth. My fiancé and I had both one drink each because the waiter didn't want to come ask if we would like another (we were... More

My wife and I have eaten at some good modern youthful restaurants with diverse but quality menus as this restaurant attempts. Unfortunately they seem to have spent more time paying attention to their decor than their dining experience. We went to Sunday Brunch yesterday. Well, it was really breakfast because it ends at 11:30. It seems this is more a... More

Very convenient if you are staying at the W Hotel. Staff are very friendly and the food was exactly what you would expect. This is a small restaurant with a limited number of seat, but I never saw it full during my stay.
