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.

Viand Bar is a real good place to eat dinner at a reasonable price. I don't think it was their intention to compete with the "high end" locations but rather provide good food, nice atmosphere and good service. They accomplish all 3 of these. Put in perspective that the other two nights we stayed downtown we spent $180 & $165... More

The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was divine. And only four of us dining? It was a week night but this is Chicago-the place should have been full. Come on people-get yourselves to Viand for dinner! You will be happy with this restaurant! We certainly were. Had we had more time,we'd have returned again for dinner.... More

The food was good and I did not go hungry. The restaurant provided food for our conference. I did not eat off of the menu so I couldn't say how their regular menu rates. I would definitely eat there again.

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.

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.
