After several visits to their O’Hare location I was able to meet with friends at their Fulton Market location in Near West Side. It’s a very popular area and the restaurant is amongst multiple other restaurants which makes parking impossible so valet is only choice...More

My husband and I love this place for early dinner before a movie night. Usually late afternoon early evening spot, not to busy and good service. Love the cider/perry selection on menu. We love sharing the half chicken with sausage and fries. Great light meal...More

Another shared plate dining experience in the West Loop. The neighbourhood is trendy and lively. Great selection of craft beer. We ate outside and it was lovely. I would recommend the clam tagliatelle! The oysters are also delicious.

We were visiting Chicago with one of my sons and his wife. He is a chef, and suggested this restaurant. He warned us it will be expensive, but we trusted his advice (so far he has never let us down). This is, without doubt, one...More

First, I really don't enjoy dining at refectory-like tables, where you are elbow to elbow with other patrons. The last time we ate here, we were at a small table on our own. Second, the noise level was through the roof, from both other peoples...More

Nice, developing neighborhood, ok food, ok service. But for European ears unbearable noise. A visit to a Oktoberfest tent at the best time is quiet compared to this restaurant. Americans seem to like it though... Besides putting noise insulation under table I would recommend to...More

West Loop
Fulton Market, Randolph Market, Jackson Boulevard and
Greek Town make up the West Loop. The neighborhood is
best known as the location of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo
Studios, but this downtown neighborhood is also an

sub-neighborhoods within West Loop make this a unique
neighborhood to visit. Dotted with factories and
warehouses, West Loop is packed with various types of
