Better food than most 4 star full service Marriotts! Chef Taylor and staff served business travelers and locals surprisingly-custom appetizers and trendy cocktails in a hoppin' Thursday night Bistro atmosphere. The Bistro would make me want to stay at that Courtyard rather than the other way around. A short cab ride from the Loop and Arts District. Friendly staff, too!

Had a very nice late lunch. We were a group of 5 and they seated us in a private room which was great since we needed to have work conversations. The tomato soup was delicious and grilled cheese very gourmet with flavorful Brie and other cheeses. Also served with fries so great comfort food for cold day. Very nice decor,... More

The service was OUTSTANDING and the food matched the service. We had the chicken sandwich from the brunch menu with a pretzel roll bun and it was out of this world amazing. We all agreed it was the best meal we had while in Chicago! Highly recommend!!

Food was overcooked, nothing special about this place. I would suggest going somewhere else. Not a big menu selection. Food was not that great, the restaurant itself is nice though.

Great experience. This restaurant is in a very busy section of Chicago and I imagine it gets overlooked because it is connected to a hotel and not a stand alone restaurant; also there are numerous big name restaurants around. I would choose this restaurant over those again in a heartbeat. The food was excellent. I was with a small group... More

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.

Patrica, I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience last month, even though it pains us to say that with our beloved Bears having an awful season!
