This restaurant has reaped much praise, but was not at all to my liking. The food was pretentious, they seasoned perfectly good popcorn with something with rosemary in that was dreadful. They then served French fries with ketchup mixed with something so weird it was inedible for me. The prices were outrageous. $27 dollars for sausage? I wound up paying... More

We've eaten at Wild Acres several times and have enjoyed each meal. The menu is somewhat limited, but the entrees are very tasty. My husband had the chicken and I had the pork sausage. The chicken is served with a bacon kale slaw (that had a nice tang) and BBQ potatoes. The pork is served with fennel noodles and vegetables... More

We stopped in at 130pm on Sat. For lunch. service was slow, tho it wasn't crowded. I ordered egg sandwich, friend ordered burger. We had a v long wait for food to arrive. Once arrived, food was good. Not exceptional but indeed, very good. Got the check but waiter never returned after that. We have now spent over 1.5 hrs... More

Corner of 53rd & Nicollet, across the street from their garden supply store. They feature many home-grown foods from their nearby farm. Ambiance is interesting as this is located in what once was a Standard Oil filling station and garage, and they retained some of the porccelined (sp?) steel wall panels. On their Sunday brunch menu try the French Toast... More

Their french toast which we had, was very good - but VERY RICH! I could only eat one of them. Their fruit cup was $5 and contained oranges and blueberries... The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, and you're given a choice or sitting inside or outside. We were disappointed - though, because we thought it was a vegetarian/healthy food restaurant... More

This is a cute place. We ate outdoors on a hot evening but it was a nice setting. The dinner menu is very limited. There is one beef item - skewered beef with think cut bacon for $29. The pork item is a combination plate consisting of a pork sausage, a pork patty and a pork medallion for $26. My... More

While traveling we love to go to local places that offer farm fresh ingredients. While that phrase is often overused, it really means farm fresh here. Most of their ingredients are sourced from a farm they own. The CSA hash was delicious as the vegetables were cooked perfectly, and he best bacon I have had in a long time! Thick... More

I wanted a salad and this was a great place to get one. Really fresh, really tasty, and I liked discovering one more new veggie each time I turned the bowl. Although I was in the mood for vegetables, the bacon slab and pickled egg were more than welcome. Dressing was fine, not memorable. Not sure why the obviously not... More

Selected by my old college roommate for a Sunday brunch. They do not take brunch reservations, but at 11:00 a.m. we waited less than 15 minutes. An eclectic menu offers traditional dishes with a twist and tout their farm to table emphasis. Our choices included the hash offering, the egg sandwich, herb scramble(2), fruit cup and carmel pinwheels. Coffee and... More

I can not find a farm to table in Chicago (where I live) as fantastic as Wise Acre. We were told we had an hour wait when we showed up for brunch, and that was PERFECT. It gave us time to browse the gardens across the street, and see what Wise Acre was all about...before being seated and hearing what... More
