5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014 via mobile

Booked the private room for 12 people. Everything was outstanding, plating was beautiful, flavors were complex but not over the top. Wine selection was strong. Service was very professional. The attention to detail certainly warrants the ratings it receives. Definitely top 5 in Chicago and compares favorably to the best in NY

I made our reservation when Grace had 2 Michelin stars. And it was a very pleasant surprise to discover that Grace received 3 stars right before our scheduled date. We arrived 20 min late, which I am embarrassed to admit. But the staff greeted and made us feel welcomed with professionalism and poise. Service involved a complex rehearsed choreography of... More

We went to this restaurant under the recommendation of a friend. Food was good. Servers are very professional and all over the place. Does it worth the price? Very frankly: No. The restaurant has no windows and the atmosphere is very heavy.

I expected nothing less than one of the best meals of my life since this restaurant has THREE Michelin stars. I was right. Each course was served and arrived looking like a work of art. It was a shame to eat them :). The food was amazing. The ingredients were odd combinations by reading them, but worked perfectly. The dinning... More

Wine pairing was phenomenal, just like the service and attention bestowed upon us. Can't wait to go back ! Make sure your ray the Rosemary gin... More

We were looking for a special restaurant where my husband and I could celebrate his very big birthday. The "Flora" and "Fauna" menus made my vegetarian, gluten-free presentation equally as important as the non-vegetarian. The evening lived up to our expectations for a meal that was well beyond the food itself, which was superb. Service was amazing and the food... More

We literally had a small team attending to us during our meal, a new person presented each of the 9 courses. For the price and as far as Michelin rated establishments go, I have had better food. Some dishes came out very salty and it seemed that they had a group of sous chefs "photo copying" the menu. Everyone's dishes... More

Let's start with the positives: the service was quite good. The room is quiet and lovely. Now that we have that behind us, let's deal with the real issue, the food. Grace is a poster child for much of what is wrong today in many high end restaurants. The chef confuses great cooking and what can only be called "plate... More

The service was very professional and met my every needs. The Fauna first six choices were were playful in their presentation (I ask and was correct in thinking the chef had worked with Grant Achatz at Trio and Alinea) and exciting pleasures to senses of sight, smell, and taste. Although the desert courses were OK, they where underwhelming when compared... More

We went here for an anniversary dinner and the place is all class. Our taxi had a little trouble finding the place.....just look for the silver door. The venue is modern, small and very personal. At 2 michelin stars the food was as amazing as expected. Where this place really stood out was in the wine pairing and service. At... More
