I really like this restaurant/bar

Food is great, service is great and draft beer on offer is always something interesting. Good place to drop by light dinner before theatre or concert or just to take a break. Decor is smart - it just works. Last week enjoyed soft shell crabs -- simple -- tasty -- delicious! A few days later... read more

The wait staff was attentive. We were the last table seated on a Sunday night. We were not rushed and were served graciously. Fabulous salad and just average ravioli.

We. were running late for an 8:00 concert and made it ti Tesori at 7. Big place with lots of seating so that although crowded we were seated immediately and out the door by 7:50. We were never rushed and were directed to "faster" entree's. Had the Carpaccio to start and was top notch. 3 of us each had a... More

Single lady trying to get some work done while at a conference and in need of a change of scenery. Walked around and stumbled upon Tesori. Ambiance is 5 star. Totally draws you in. Wait staff was okay, once they got rolling. Though, When not waiting tables, most servers congregated at the bar for social hour. Wine selection is pretty... More

Three of us had joined two friends unexpectedly that had already had their appetizer and first course.The waiter was helpful in making the square four person table into a round table to seat five. He explained the specials and menu and the latecomers drinks right away. When it came to ordering, I explained I needed to avoid dairy. The waiter... More

We had lunch on the patio. I had the rosemary chicken pizza with leeks. It was delicious. My friend got the beet salad which was also delicious. The service was pleasant. The patio is surrounded by a nice landscaping with some pretty flowers. It was a refreshing lunch after walking around the busy city.

Loved the menu, the service, the ambiance. Very grown up place with a menu friendly to vegetarians as well as their carnivore friends. The desserts looked amazing, but we stayed true to our diet - the Tuscan Kale Lentils were a delight, and the Italian chicken salad was a celebration of taste and heritage.

Very attactive room and a great location if you are going to the CSO. Our guest ordered the barrata as a starter. It was completely "off" and sour. What a way to start a very average meal. I ordered the salmon. I am sure they gave me salmon trout. Both the flavor and the texture was definitely salmon trout which... More

We had dinner then dessert at the bar here, with a Chicago Symphony concert in between. We had tried to book the restaurant but, perhaps not surprisingly on a concert night (the restaurant is in the same building), we were unsuccessful but arrived early enough to eat in the bar. The atmosphere was excellent, with informal conversations drifting from table... More

Food here is terrific. Beet salad and a salmon entree were prepared perfectly and covered by delicious sauces. Location for Symphony (next door) Art Institute ( a block) and loop (your in it) is ideal. Service was excellent. The large space is divided between a more casual area and a table cloth dining area, both quite attractive.
