Perhaps this was a continued bad experience from the courtyard hotel. I sat down for breakfast and the 2 waitresses were standing behind the divider that separated the dining room from the kitchen. They both saw me sit down. Neither of them came over for several minutes. No one was being served so I cannot be sure what they were... More

We had breakfast four mornings at the Viand. The "Stay for Breakfast" option was available when booking with the Marriott Courtyard/Magnificent Mile. The cooked to order breakfast had a wide variety and a buffet was also offered (skip the buffet). The service was attentive and very friendly. The food was excellent as was the presentation. Great stop for breakfast to... More

Came to Chicago this week with a group of 12 from my company. I chose this restaurant mostly because of location; but also from reviews on line. I was looking for something casual, not to spendy, but worthy of a team dinner. It turned out to be a great find. A few things contributed to this. First, we were given... More

Spent the weekend in downtown Chicago. Stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott where this restaurant is. My wife's birthday weekend and we were given a couple of complimentary drinks at Viand. We decided to stop in and pick up our freebies before heading off somewhere for dinner. We had not made up our minds on where to go yet but... More

Nice place to grab a quick bite. The service is super, the beet salad is gorgeous. Sandwiches were average, no great shakes, but it was convenient and fast and perfect because we had gotten in later in the evening and wanted to just eat and go to sleep.

Talk about a mixed review. I'm staying at the Marriott Courtyard where this restaurant is located. I had dinner there my first night. The food was original, well prepared and all around fantastic. The strange part was the butter. You would think it was gold. They gave me one pad of butter for the bread. I asked for more butter... More

Although we did have a good time at the bar late one night, the restaurant itself left a lot to be desired. FIrst of all, the Sunday lunch menu was printed on something a little larger than a 3x5 notecard and did not have much variety. The french fries lacked seasoning and the chips and salsa were served in a... More

My fiancé and I came down to Chicago for a romantic weekend and were looking for good food that wasn't over priced and didn't require a dress code as we didn't feel like dressing up. We searched forever looking for a place and stumbled on this place. We were both hesitant after reading some of the negative reviews but loved... More
