We were able to eat on the terrace and enjoyed a very good Italian influenced meal. The food was excellent and was well served. Wine was reasonable, especially as compared to the food prices.

The terrace is spectacular at night with a very distinctive urban feel. Walking through Barney's at night is not without its charm.

The service was good. The view was fine. The food was average. Not much to get excited about. No atmosphere, no pizazz, no zing.

Had a wonderful meal with an old friend on Fred's roof top terrace. The view has an amazing view of the city with Lake Michigan in the background. Service was attentive and knowledgable. For dinner, I had calamari, petite filet with mashed potatoes and green beans paired with a great Cabernet. The meal was expensive but delicious.

I would skip the calamari next time...it had a burned taste to it. If it is a beautiful evening in Chicago, why not make the most of it on Fred's terrace? I'll be back.

I love taking people here who are in town visiting. The menu is varied and quite good. The service is excellent and there is an extensive wine list. Although the view from the terrace isn't great, it's very pleasant sitting out here on a warm summer night

This has great reviews but I thought the food and service were just OK. High priced for what you get. I will skip this one next time.
