We went with our family. Nice setting and beautiful decoration. Menu is the same as Cheese Cake Factory. Nothing unique. Food quality, taste and service was outstanding.

We love this place and often split an appetizer and a meal. The portions are large. Try to get a table near a window.

Reminded me of the Cheesecake Factory. Great menu choices, really tasty food and a beautiful view of the city all at very affordable prices. Nothing stuffy about this friendly place.

Service was good, my family enjoyed their food. We had the chicken Parmesan, chicken Alfredo and the turkey club sandwich. My son wanted fried calamari and the waitress said the small plate was about the size of a salad plate. Well, it comes out on a salad plate but it was about 6 or 7 calamari. They tasted good but...

We wondered around in the downtown Chicago trying to figure out what to eat and where. Having no clue we decided to ask recommendations from the locals on the street.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
