This is an excellent restaurant. We have been here four times and they always come through. Norma provided us great service this evening. She did not rush our dinner in any way although we arrived close to closing time. Thank you Norma and Emilios.

Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

Locals and tourists have enjoyed small plate and freshly-made tapas at Emilio's Sol y Nieve since 1999. With regular Spanish inspired entertainment including Flamenco Shows and Wine Dinners, the lively, upscale vibe of Emilio's Sol y Nieve make it a grate dining institution to get together. And while you'll see small plates everywhere now, this tapas experience is an authentic one that focuses on helping people interact with one another.
