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

I’m a huge fan of Brunch restaurants. I love pancakes, omellets, toasts, skillets all the brunch stuff. Yolk is one of the famous brunch place and I was really looking forward to visiting here. I ordered Red Velvet French toast and California omelet ‘to go’ I’d been waiting for 30min and they still didn’t call my name and I saw... More

Large menu of both breakfast and lunch items available at breakfast hours. Server and kitchen easily accommodated alterations to dish as described on menu. Truly outstanding potato pancakes. They don't take reservations so expect a wait, but tables turnover quickly even though no pressure to vacate them.

The food was good comforting breakfast food. The service was outstanding and the food came out very quickly. The highlight of the meal may been the strawberry-orange juice.

Don't get lunch food here. Just don't do it. I don't care if it's 1:30pm. This is the place where you get a make my own omelette if you don't know what to get. Their potatoes are very good. Pancakes are huge and French Toast is delicious. In and out. No BS. A wait? Yeah it's good food, so weekends... More
