My boyfriend and I went to the restaurant Sat Aug 23, 2014. The hostess was great. She sat us right away on the patio. Well, we sat for 15 min and never got served. Not even water. Asked a server was he our server he said NO but would get him. When the server came out he never came to... More

The location is good, the decor fine, server very friendly, but the food was only ok, and the prices should yield better results. Nothing was terrible (grilled fish, chowder, desserts, veggies) but only our companions' crab cakes merited higher than pretty good rating, even the sorbet had little ice crystals. The sourdough bread was ok, but nothing special. We cook... More

$195 for lunch for 3 people. Mixed oysters were a nice touch, lobster mashed potatoes were awesome, filet was spot on, Kobe burger was average and eggs Benedict was average as well. Server had a good attitude but needs to improve on timeliness.

We stumbled on this restaurant walking around downtown. The menu was inviting. The service was excellent and the pike was delicious. We all loved our dishes. This restaurant is a keeper!

Excellent food and service! All four of us ordered something different (lunch) and we were all ooing and aahing over our selections. My friend who got a bowl of the New England Clam Chowder said she wanted to lick the bowl after it was all gone! I had the best crabcake I've ever had (and I'm picky about my crabcakes!).... More

We were staying in the nearby Sofitel and chose the restaurant because of proximity+bad weather+hunger. Well, we've dined there almost every day of our few days stay in Chicago, both for drinks, snacks and lunch. Very helpful service, good selection of light and more filling dishes. I particularly reccomend the oysters, which are a find for the price in that... More

This is a nice restaurant and would have said it was great if the food was better and if I did not have to wait so long for my food. What is it in Chicago with the restaurants, this was the second restaurant that I went to that I had to wait for my food. The excuse at this one... More

We now make a point of having at least one meal at M and S when we're in Chicago (and in other cities that host one). Had an early dinner. Place was almost full. The company is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a special menu and a couple of select wines ... at $35 they are half price. So we... More
