I loved how you could get as much and what ever you wanted! The downfall was you didn't know how much was on the card until you payed

This re-imagined take on a mall food court is fun and interesting and just a tad confusing, at least to this first timer. foodlife is the restaurant and within that space are 14 stand- alone food stalls, including kitchens for stir fry, pasta, barbeque, salads, taqueria, comfort food, sushi, soup and juice to name a few. When you enter, a... More

Located on the lower level of the John Hancock (now 360) building. Many choices including BBQ, sushi, pizza, and Asian to name a few. Walk around and get something from each place if you want. An endless bowl of soup, with the option to choose from 8 to 10 varieties (one after another), for about $8 is a good value.

Foodlife is located at Water Tower Place on Michigan Ave. They have a very good efficient system which is really great if you are pressed for time. The different food is set up in different stations and you are handed a card which is swiped at each station, once you are done eating you simply take the card to the... More

Stopped for a bite at this upscale food court on our way to the John Hancock building and enjoyed some pizza, salad, and gelato. The prices are fairly reasonable. There are enough cuisines to satisfy every taste. If you are looking for a salad, be sure to check out the salad bar across from the eatery, which has many options... More

We stopped in here (myself and 7 other females) to eat before heading out for more shopping. This was a suggestion from our local hostess since we were shopping and were all hungry for different things. The concept of running a food court with a card swipe for each item and then paying at the end is an excellent idea.... More

My wife and I stopped here for afternoon tea after some shopping around Chicago. There was pleanty to chose from, from cakes through to pasta or pizza. We had a cup cake each, a German and a Red Velvet. We both feel they were probably the best we had ever had. The environment was relaxing and service was great. It... More
