Very nice light dinner after Northwestern University activities. My husband and I had soup and salad with a side order of their truffle fries. Excellent food and service. Good wine and craft beer choices. Would definitely recommend for casual dining.

So this restaurant is located on the other side of The Stained Glass, although both are connected. I think this one is a little less formal but it certainly doesn't feel that way. It's not a very big restaurant but the inside is very cozy...More

We have been to this restaurant multiple times and the food is delicious. This particular evening was different. The hostess did not honor our high top seating request, which was on the reservation. I always order the lamb chops. This time they were anorexic. It...More

The atmosphere is nice. The food was just okay. The service was bad. The server did not explain the menu and how the food comes out. We ordered chips and guacamole to share, since the fried chicken said it takes a while to come out...More
