Dined here again as I was given a $400 gift voucher (and if you've read my previous review, I would not have if I had to pay out of my own pocket). The food was mediocre compared to similar 'fine-dining' restaurants around i.e. Oriole, Grace,...More

And this is what one expects from a 2* Michelin. Indeed, service is accurate and professional, the food is very good and the wine list appropriate. The decor is a tad inpersonal, and not very upscale, but it's certainly OK.

I usually eat in the bar and I can't imagine a better "bar-tasting" menu. The other items "a la carte" on the bar menu are great as well. The chocolate soufflé alone is worth a trip.I've only eaten in the dining room once: it was...More

I truly love tasting menus - it is wonderful to get a progression of delightfully flavored and exquisitely plated bites paired with thoughtfully chosen beverages. And I understand it is not main stream and it can be expensive. I have been privileged to dine many...More

For a 2 star restaurant this was incredibly disappointing. It was over rated and over priced for what it delivered. The snails wrapped in fat were the worst thing I've eaten in a very long time. Service was stuffy and borderline rude. Music was random....More

The experience was good times. The booze and food paired well to the point that I was mesmerized, wait maybe a little drunk. The fact that they had some whiskeys that are hard to find I was very impressed with their collection. Food wise the...More

Celebrated our anniversary at Acadia and was underwhelmed. The best part was the cocktail, The Rich Gamble. Probably the best cocktail that I've ever enjoyed. Unfortunately, that was the high point. The stark modern decoration keeps your focus on the food and service but is...More

Service is spectacular. Food was exquisite!! Ambiance was comfortable and quiet. The presentation of each course was very creative and all of the dishes, boxes, bowls, etc. tied together elegantly. The wine pairings were perfect complements to each dish or was it vice versa? Our...More

Chef Ryan McCaskey's delicate creations and thoughtful presentation is an experience you will cherish forever. Worth every penny. Unique!! Surely deserving of more than just 2 stars.

From the moment we stepped inside, the Acadia was a fantastic experience. We had the five course and will definitely do the ten course next visit. The taste and presentation of each course is beyond words. This is a must do restaurant.

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

Pretty much have to call them ahead of time, they will have to rearrange the table for a large party. Space is big enough for sure.
