If you have the time, funds and can get a table GO! The service flawless. The meal was stunning. Think not only taste but textures. The food presentation is really art. The wine pairing was a great addition. I have been to many great restaurants and this in the top three

Last night I had the privilege of eating at Chicago's newest Michelin 3-star restaurant. How do I ever describe this remarkable meal? Get ready for superlatives. Mind you, I'm no Michelin star novice, yet I'm almost at a loss for words. Think Gordon Ramsey on the best day of his cooking life except no yelling in this immaculate, marble-slabbed divinity...

Much better than Alinea, and better than Tru's tasting menu. Plan 3 1/2 -4 hrs for 9 courses (choose between all vegetarian or meat/fish), both come with an array of exquisite mini breads with artisan butters. The lentil english muffin was one of my favorite things in the whole meal! Not all of the portions are tasting-menu tiny, and the... More

If you are reading this, you know their credentials. Michelin 3 stars, very high end...you are not going to have a wedge and NY strip. What you will experience is a masterpiece of taste, service and presentation. One dessert course was a compote served inside a 'shell' of some type- the preparation was to spoon a mixture into a latex... More

Although very expensive it was worth every penny. Food was superb and imaginative. We had the meat/fish version of the tasting menu with wine pairings which were outstanding. What pushed Grace to the top of my list was the service which managed to be highly professional yet very warm and friendly.

Two prefix menus, flora and fauna, to chose from ($205.) I recommend going with the wine pairings ($125). It would be very difficult to choose a wine that would go with all of the courses. The four of us all chose the fauna menu which is a mixture of land and sea dishes. This was not my first time dining... More

The only other amazing dinner I've had was at Charlie Trotters over ten years ago. Though, expensive, this 3-star Michelin award winning restaurant does a perfect job tantalizing your senses from start to finish. Aroma, textures, taste, and perception all play among each other on each course. The wine pairings were spot on, and such a treat as each course... More

Grace is the nearest 3 star restaurant to our home city of Louisville and it has availability on Open Table; hence the choice. An additional bonus is that it is located four blocks from our son's Chicago apartment. It was a fascinating experience. the only choices for diners are flora or fauna tasting menus.

Tasting menu that is very unique and well prepared and presented. Excellent wine pairing for each course. Excellent staff and lovely ambiance. Each course a delightful surprise. Some courses more spectacular than the others, but very, very good all around. Must be a foodie to truly enjoy this experience. Enjoyed every moment!
