Great experience, there is nothing like it, and a real adventure. We enjoyed our evening, surprise after surprise. Downside: their wine pairing as well as their wine list doesn't reach the exceptional level of their food, way off, by far.

Brought my mom here for her 60th birthday. She was super excited and they delivered. The food was hands down the best food we have ever ate . Will go again and worth every penny.

Alinea has been on our list of "must dos" for a long time, so we finally committed to making the trip to Chicago primarily to dine there. With the long list of accolades and awards, we fully expected the restaurant to be exceptional and it...More
