Incredible wine by the glass program with flights available, and some phenomenal American tapas including bacon wrapped dates and such up to game and local produce prepared in an open kitchen and the vibe is so relaxing verging on hipster. An experience, and so memorable. Billy the server is great!

Have been there several times and have yet to find anything bad to say. Excellent food reasonably priced. Excellent wine selection also.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining here for dinner during a recent getaway to Chicago. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. The wait staff were attentive, helpful and worked together as a team to make sure we were well taken care of. And then there was the food. I do a lot of gourmet cooking at home and it takes quite a bit for a restaurant to impress me. This is easily one of the best food experiences I have had anywhere in the world.

On a Living Social coupon- greeted at the door by our waiter very cordially. Given our choice of tables. Seated near the fireplace.. Nice after a subway ride and chilly walk.. The waiter was one of the finest we have ever encountered and the menu was intriguing. He led us through the choices but never pressed us toward particular items. Hash?? As an appetizer?? With pork belly and chorizo?? We ordered, guided by the waiter and everything proved incredible. I am at a loss for words at this encounter. There was not one item, not one turn which was not pleasing. We left here on a cloud.

We attended a rehearsal dinner here, so we got to sample allot of appetizers and the dinner was pre-ordered and served tapas style. Not sure if that is always the case, but we tried allot of different dishes and each one was better then the last. The dessert, which was a small chocolate truffle with warm chocolate center was divine.
