“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Bold favors, very creative and varied menu.

The place was packed, but the food was worth the wait. Would definitely reccommend.

“Great small plates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I loved the reasonably priced Spanish wine list and the multiple small plates to share. The group seating was a bit awkward for business conversations.

“One of the best in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

You can't go to avec without having the dates - simply beautiful!!
Go with someone who likes to share so you can get the variety of flavours!
The only down side is that you cannot book so often have to wait - which I must say is well worth it!

“Beautiful room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Rotating menu of small, shareable plates in new american style. The country ham and whipped brandade are great. The dates/meatballs (don't know what they are really) are excellent. Saw Anne Burrell here last night, and a guy fell off his chair (probably because of the delicious food), so it must be good. Also, the all-wood room is very cool.

“A foodie's dream come true.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Service is great and it doesn't serve any mediocre dishes. The chef(s) here understands flavors and food textures and how to put them together with exceptional results. This is a small restaurant that squeezes so much into their little space that it is amazing how efficiently it is managed.
