With only 4 tables occupied the server couldn't keep up. They had changed their menu and the server couldn't explain anything from it. One dish came without vegetables because they ran out. The other dish came with carrots instead of sweet potatoes. If the manager hadn't stopped and tried to set things right this review would have rated lower. I... More

Good food friendly service comfortable free wifi. Welcoming little spot from the cold outside. Try the egg white frittata. Yum. 16.58 not including tip with coffee so I suppose that's not cheap but really enjoyed it.

We had one of the best breakfast at the Magnificent Mille during our stay there. The staff is very friendly and polite. The options are enough to choose a good start of your day.

A very good meal option on those nights when you want a satisfying meal without the huge price. The service, food and atmosphere are all enjoyable. The staff is caring and cooperative with requests. We both enjoyed our meals again and the service was good. We will continue to visit Viand when we come to Chicago and recommend you give... More

We came to the bar for a late night snack and drinks. The bar was not crowded for a Friday night. Instruments were set up for live music that never played. The service was slow, and the bartender wasn't paying attention to her patrons. One patron tried far too hard for far too long to get her attention to pay... More

I was staying at the CY Marriott and went to Viand for breakfast. The service was amazingly quick. I sat at the bar to catch up on the TV news, and the waiter was taking my order in a flash. Within ten minutes, my breakfast was in front of me. I had the fast fare breakfast, eggs with ham. The... More

This gem of a restaurant is a half-block off Michigan Avenue and may not be as well known as others, but we have visited it several times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. It's attractive, comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, the drinks are great, and the food is excellent. We're always delighted to return... More

I guess I should have expected it because it was a hotel bar but 2 amaretto on the rocks was $21.00. The nice thing is we could take it to our room and relax after dinner. It would be nice if they would have some live music on Saturday night, might be more people in there. Only went because of... More

I have eaten both lunch and dinner at this restaurant in the past few days. Each time, the staff were attentive, and the food and drinks prompt. Reasonable prices too. They obviously work on satisfying their guests.
