I really like this breakfast spot even though they don't really know what you mean when you say "cheese eggs." Lol. The french toast is perfect and the sausage is outstanding. The price is fair for Chicago and the setting is contemporary and clean looking. Always a must for a restaurant. My wife loved the beef hash, potatoes, and pancakes... More

Fine, everything is fine. The best part of this place is the slogan on the tshirts. Needs an upgrade; was better three years ago.

Nice atmosphere, but they aren't able to repeat the quality of food. Ordered 2 steaks well done, but only one was well done. Service was fast.

Went looking for a Yolk after friends recommended it and the food was worth the trip. Alexandra looked after us and it was the best service we got in Chicago. A lot of fun and good food.

Yolk was packed on a Sunday morning around 9:30 and there was about a 30 minute wait. They took our number to text us when our table was ready and we took a walk around the block. Despite the crowds they texted us in 15 minutes and our server was with us shortly. The Eggs Benedict with grilled tomatoes, pesto... More

I had been disappointed with some of my dining experiences in Chicage, but Yolk redeemed my breakfast experience. The menu is comprehensive and the waiting staff were friendly. The place was packed, always a good sign, and I would recommend a visit.

At the recommendation of the hotel staff where we stayed, we tried this place for breakfast! The food is delicious, fresh with many different combinations. Go early, as we did, otherwise you will have a long wait!

This is the Yolk that I know from Fort Worth. The food is fresh and tasty and the service is great. We didn't have a long wait, the order was accurate, the temperature in the restaurant was perfect, no complaints at all. Having reviewed 3 Yolk restaurants (this one, dallas, and fort worth), I'd rate this one 1st, Fort Worth... More

This is our second time to eat at Yolk but the first for the location on the West Loop. I highly recommend it!!!! The location near Navy Pier is great but small so the lines are longer. At the West Loop, not far from the Willis Tower we waited less than 5 minutes for brunch on a Sunday at 10am!... More
