We made a reservation based on the reviews from Tripadvisor. We arrived early for our reservation and waited on the couch at the front entrance. As we waited, we watched delicious meal after delicious meal pass us by. Once seated, we had Julio who was a pleasant waiter. We thought that it was odd that although there were a party... More

We actually came to visit last year on Halloween weekend, but I totally forgot to review Bavette. Visiting for the second time was just as amazing. This place is second to none and the service is impeccable. Thank you so much Brandon for being so amazing. We truly had the most amazing experience in October. If you do decide to... More

My Wife had tried Bavettes on trip to Chicago in June. She enjoyed her me meal so much she considered this as a must do on our return trip in July. We reserved our table about a week prior. Prime hours were not available. We however are not opposed to eating late. We booked a table for 10:15 pm. The... More

I was told that Babette's was rated the 2nd best restaurant in Chicago prior to going. I did not follow up on it and I can see why it could be rated that way. Upon entering it is very bar-like and we were almost seated in this area. The couple we were with immediately let them know that they reserved... More

Went here on a recommendation from a chef/friend. It did not disappoint. Hot goat cheese app was awesome. Crab cake was different but still very good. Bone in strip was out of this world good. Juicy, flavorful......just awesome. Too full for dessert but the choices looked tasty. Would recommend to everyone.

It's a cozy place. We were having a good time until my husband found a rubber band in his salad and you can't recover from that. The hosts were very sorry and removed it from the bill, but unfortunately it just ruined the dinner. I do recommend this restaurant because it was just an unfortunate thing that happened to us....

Perfect for a special occasion or late night food fix (service until 12:30 AM on Fri./Sat.), Bavette's has a classy 1920's feel with dim lighting, huge leather booths and lots of wood. Bavette's serves delicious food at a range of prices; from classy entrees such as the seafood tower to the $15 burger (my personal favorite). Also, the staff are... More

If you can manage to get a table (place is always slammed), you can do no wrong at Bavettes. The food is spectacular. Everything on the menu is done to perfection. I have yet to find anything that I didn't enjoy. The service staff are extremely professional, but not stuffy. Really personable and fun, but spot on in terms of... More
