I went there on New Year's Eve and had a 4-course fixed price menu. Everything was delicious and the place was charming. Feels like a pub with more high end food. Would be a great place to take visitors from out of town because you...More
We stopped here for dinner over the holiday . I must admit , I have mixed feelings about the restaurant , although I would not rule out going back .
The restaurant is very small and tight inside . The tables are right up on...More
We had a pleasant dinner here before going to the ballet. The ambiance is warm and cozy and the staff are attentive without being overly so. They had run out of one of the vegetarian entrees, but accommodated us by making another. They also were...More
We used to live downtown, but have since moved to the burbs. This is one of the few Chicago restaurants that we all agree is worth fighting the traffic to come downtown for. Had dinner here with my husband and two young daughters. We opted...More
This was our second trip to Acanto, and it didn’t disappoint. The owners stopped by with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine to start off the meal. My husbands duck breast was the best he’d ever had. The suggested accompanying Pino
Nero went with his...More
This is a lovely spot for dinner and a bottle of wine. The restaurant has an extensive wine list (with an excellent sommelier) and the food was absolutely delicious. The room has a very nice vibe and I’d go back in a heartbeat.
We weren't able to be seated at our original reservation time, which created a short time frame for our meal since we had theater tickets. One of the managers, Nechelle, proactively took our appetizer order as the table was being prepped so our dining wouldn't...More
A cozy spot for a cold Chicago night, accommodating waitstaff, interesting wines by the glass. The octopus starter was absolutely delicious. The pastas were very good but pricey for the small portion sizes. The bread was good but we had to ask for it. Meal...More
Offering one of the most extensive wine lists I’ve seen, along with a knowledgeable sommelier, makes this the perfect place for wine lovers. They also offer a few beers and cocktails. Dinner was fantastic. I highly recommend the tuna tartare as a starter. It’s a...More
Food was outstanding starting with the steak tartar appetizer, followed by the multiple entrees we ordered. Lasagna, Pork Chop and Salmon were all great and each had a unique presentation. Extensive wine list, limited beer on tap. Great service, no offense taken when wine ordered...More
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
