So my two teenage sons and I were looking for a nice restaurant in Eilat and decided to check out The Chicago. The waiter was very professional and went out of his way to give us an enjoyable meal. However, the prices are absurd! My son and I ordered a hamburger which was fine accept that it cost close to I think 80 ILS. I have been to many restaurants in my life from low pub fare to upscale, white glove service. Personally, this restaurant is overrated. The decor is very bland (although the name of the restaurant is Chicago, the atmosphere and setting does not correspond with the name). I know this because both my sons attend a private school in Chicago and I travel there frequently. The only plus to the restaurant was the bread the service with the three different dips. Other than that, it was certainly not worth the steep price.

We went to this restaurant with a party of 6. We chose this restaurant because although its a kosher meat place the online menu showed a halibut entree and mushroom ravioli appetizer (and we had a vegetarian in our group). Unfortunately when we arrived at the table we saw that both of the previously mentioned items were no longer on the menu and no fish or veggie option was added in their place. Our waiter told us the only thing available for vegetarian was salad. Despite the rocky beginning, the food was excellent - and the vegetarian managed to get enough to eat with the wonderful fresh bread, interesting salads, and potatoe side dish that was served as an accompaniment to the meat entrees.

The first courses are very good, main are fairly cooked, but not something to "die for". By the time you get to the end of your steak it is too cold to eat it. Desert are fair, but not excellent. Atmosphere is very good, and the service cover all the rest, well trained waters, that gives an excellent service.
