Had an incredible tasting/alcohol pairing menu at Mexique. Service was outstanding, food was vibrant in color and left a lasting impression on the palate. Will be back for sure and will refer all our friends!

I have been at Mexique twice now and I must rate the service, the quality of the food and the atmosphere outstanding. The menu is varied although not large, but everything is well thought of, clearly very fresh and the presentation is lovely. You leave the restaurant feeling well fed and happy except for one small point, the wine. I... More

First and foremost, this restaurant is absolutely phenomenal. It was my first visit and I came here partly because it was a Friday night and other restaurants were swamped (this one too became busy as the evening progressed). Nothing fancy on the exterior, but the chef and owner does wonders in the kitchen. I had the 8-course tasting menu and... More

Let me start by saying that I always try to get to Mexique when I visit Chicago. The food at Mexique really shines. The octopus ceviche was incredible, the mussels remain a bright and shining star. The sauce/broth on both is absolutely amazing. Trout entree was the least favorite, did not measure up to the excellent duck. The squid ink... More

I found Mexique on trip advisor while looking for a new place for lunch with my wife. After eating here, her confidence in my restaurant picking skills was again validated! Mexique lived up to the others reviews. It was nearly empty at lunch but there were no weaknesses. Service was excellent, the food was very creative, featuring fresh ingredients and... More

The food was exquisite. The chef walked around checking with his guests how they were enjoying the food. Lovely atmosphere. I was visiting from Ireland and wanted to experience the taste of Chicago. The food had Mexican flavors with a lovely French Flair. Absolutely a lovely experience with excellent service.

We came intending to try the restaurant week menu but instead went with the lamb and duck entrees on the main menu. These were both delicious, perfectly prepared and well-presented. We ended with the chocolate fondant dessert which was both delicious and pretty to look at! Service was good, but not excellent.

This unassuming little restaurant was a wonderful find. The restaurant is an attractive room with the maitre d’ station immediately in front and a nice sized bar just past. There are about twenty or so tables for dinning, including a full banquette. We had reservations and we were seated immediately. Hats and coats were all swiftly rounded up and taken... More

Short business lunch here and both meals were stellar. The presentation, in particular, was a step above even fine dining standard, and the combination of flavors was creative, thoughtful, and most importantly, successful. It's immediately apparent why this is a Michelin-starred property.
