“Delicious Pre-theater meal”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner with family before a show at the Pabst Theater which is next door. You can access the theater from the Intercontinental Hotel which houses the restaurant without going outside. The restaurant is on the second flour of the hotel.
All staff was extraordinarily pleasant and attentive beginning with the hostess. The manager stopped by on two occasions to make sure our dining experience was to our satisfaction. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we had the benefit of ordering from the Pre-theater menu or the regular menu. All of our selections were delicious and well prepared. None too salty or oily as can sometimes happen. Portion sizes were reqsonable and a good value. The drink or Juice menu as they call it, had a selection of specialty cocktails along with wines by the bottle or glass and beers.
Decor is on the modern side with orange as an accent color. Large windows and a spacious, fresh feel.
Would definitely return.

Went there for brunch.....awesome! The oatmeal with apricot compote was divine, and the California Benedict was delicious. Everything from the decor to the service was perfect. Lovely dining experience.

I only had breakfast here, but the service was very good, the portions were generous, and I couldn't believe the bill wasn't more!

Reviewed April 5, 2013

A tremendous meal, highlighted by superior service from Lindsey. Attentive, responsive to questions, helpful. Nothing negative at all. The trout was tremendous and short ribs tender and delicious. We're sure to return.
