The place looks very hospitable, low lights, not too noisy, lot of dark wood paneling, a great tinted glass wall with a beautiful representation of a Chicago evening landscape. Everything welcomes you warmly. Service is OK - looks like they are doing an effort to be friendly but do not fully succeed with that. Salad was OK, and filet au poivre was just OK; meat was cooked properly, but a bit chewy (would expect much more from a filet). Wild rice was very good, Mushrooms and asparagus sides were OK. Creme brulee was excellent, other dessert was so so. Wine not too pricey, decent selection. The Malbec was good, but not memorable.
