We ate late on Christmas day and found a wonderful experience. Our waitress was very warm and welcoming and the food was great. Despite being very busy we were welcomed on arrival and they apologized for the short wait for our reservation. We never felt rushed. A lovely Christmas memory.

We had a reservation and were promptly seated on Christmas Eve 2014. Table shared Shrimp Kisses for an appetizer. Entrees included Chilean Sea Bass, Mixed Grill, Stuffed Shrimp and Seafood Trio. All of the entrees were delicious. Will definitely return. Great service. Good wine selection.

We had the Filet and stuffed shrimp, and it was made with perfection! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice! We highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quality steakhouse.

My family and I visited in August during Labor Day weekend and we sat outside for dinner. The view was amazing and the food was great too! Our server was very busy with a lot of tables so the service was a little slow but he was very nice and made wonderful recommendations. I highly recommend eating here when you... More

Let me start by praising them on location, elegance and food. We had a great experience with them on Christmas Eve, so much so that we made a reservation for Christmas dinner with them. On Christmas night we showed up 2 hours early to sit at the bar and take in the atmosphere before our reservation. Not to be overlooked... More

I sat at the bar for lunch while staying at the nearby Sofitel Chicago Water Tower while my husband was at a conference. Always had amazing service.

We stopped here after chriskindelmart. We sat in the bar for cocktails and decided to have dinner. The ultimate mix which had a variety of shrimp and grilled salmon Was very good. My girlfriends scallops were quite tasty However the service was not the best Quite slow in fact maybe the dining room would have been a better choice
