This was opposite the Sofitel where we were staying so we used the bar quite a lot, and ate there on the last day. The bar staff was very friendly, the drinks reasonable if not cheap, and the food very good when we ate in the restaurant. The only odd point was they had no rose wine on their wine... More

A group of 5 had dinner in the bar area. They weren't terribly busy but we had very slow service, even had to wonder if the waiter got lost sometimes. My friend and I ordered a hamburger and fries. Sounds simple, but they mixed up our orders and never got it right. The waiter saw how upset I was and... More

We have has several yummy meals here lately, but it is not a welcoming environment either physically or socially. Our server, a woman, seemed clinically depressed and quite phony in her cold politeness. There is something odd and off about the arrangement of the tables, where people are always getting jostled and bumped. They do a very uncomfortable selling of... More

Didn't really have any expectations since my heart was set on deep dish pizza but surprisingly this place hit the spot. I just ordered a burger and it was GREAT! Cooked to absolute perfection!!!! Burger so good makes you wanna slap somebody!!! Service was excellent, never had to lift a finger. Definitely enjoyed my time here.

To celebrate my 74th birthday, my wife and I decided to dine at three different restaurants in three days over the Labor Day holiday. We had never been to Bistro Voltaire before. We had been to the Libby at the Peninsula Hotel for breakfast and lunch but this was our first time for dinner. And to top it all off,... More

My husband took me to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. We weren't too familiar with Chicago seafood restaurants so picked this one via the web. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the ambiance was nice. Was not told we'd have to park in the Loew's hotel parking for a fee, but they validated it so we only paid $5.... More

This was my first experience eating here, and I loved it. I love an elegant atmosphere, but frequently you have to forego taste for style. Not so here. I loved the elegant dining room but lived my dinner just as well. It was served with class and was very tasty.

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
