Just a really nice restaurant, comfortable seating, good food, fast service, reasonable prices, not loud, did not feel rushed at dinner. Loved the decor and the beautiful lighting, very shooting place.

It was a cool evening and we just stopped in to sit in the bar area and have a bite. Draft beers, some chicken skewers, fried zucchini chips, calamari... all good and served by a friendly and attentive staff. The place is large... two levels and a big dining area. You're just a short walk from Navy Pier here. Cheers... More

I really enjoyed the salad I ordered. The small salad was big enough to be a satisfying meal. On my second visit I got a black bean burger, which was excellent as well.

Was here on business. Went for dinner meeting- sent to second floor. Lighting was dim, hard to read the menu. The pork sliders were quite tasty, a lot of bun remove d 1/2 of it. The chicken spring roles were again so-so, try something else. I ordered what others were ordering as I could not see very well and didn't... More

I caught an early movie at the adjoining theater and had lunch at the bar. The service was excellent and the food was quite good. The bartender told me they have a 4am license if u want a late night spot!

While staying at the attached Embassy Suites, we ate here several times...the food was always good but I woudn't categorize it as outstanding...wait staff was attentive so no complaints...most of the time the food arrived within a reasonable wait time with one exception when it was very slow and this during a time when the restaurant was not really busy...

This was very close to our hotel and we did not want to ride another taxi or walk to dinner. They do take reservations on Open Table which made it very easy. Dress code was fairly wide. Some showed up in jeans which other were wearing sports coats. I don't think that it really matters. Just like most places you... More

I was visiting my daughter and son-in-law and they had not tried this restaurant that was recommended to them, and so we went with them and my son-in-law's parents. The place seems designed to attract young people. We were seated upstairs and enjoyed it- we had some privacy off to the left. We shared some appetizers- spinach rolls and the... More

I work near this place so sometimes I go out for a nice sit down lunch with my friends and I have never been disappointed with their food. They have fantastic salads and french onion soup. I have also been with friends who have ordered pasta and burgers there and they loved them. For lunch you can get a small... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
