Over the years, I heard people rave about Mindy's Hot Chocolate and finally decided to see what all the hype was about. Well let me tell you..now I finally get it! The hot chocolate is beyond scrumptious and the homemade marshmallows complete the world's most perfect cup of hot chocolate! The entrees are also divine! I had a pepper and... More

Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate was incredible! Tasted like a candy bar in a cup!! Homemade marshmallow and ganache were sooo good in the hot chocolate mix. Pricey for hot chocolate ($7-10/cup), but totally worth it for the amazing treat! Sampled one of their cookies--unique lemon & salty taste. Not bad. My fiancé had the Mexican Hot Chocolate. He said it was... More

Great food and wonderful hot chocolate! We shared a great beet salad and the scrambled egg with duck. Both were excellent. They do a great twist on boiled potatoes. Smashed and then crisped over a flame. Do save room for the hot chocolate.

One of my favorite places in Chicago to date!!! You obviously have to get the hot chocolate with their homemade marshmallows. But the food is also very inventive and Devine.

This is a favorite of mine when in the Chicago area- we had lunch this time- the food is always amazing, fresh and flavorful. This time I had the market salad with shrimp- I highly recommend it! The medium hot chocolate is the perfect blend of milk and dark chocolate- the staff is cordial and friendly--

I had the mac and cheese starter as a main (I couldn't finish it) with cauliflower and carrots as sides. The mac and cheese was the best I've ever had. The cauliflower flavoursome but the carrots overcooked and greasy. I had a lovely pear desert with a deconstructed cheesecake. Very nice but not amazing. Had a great chocolate martini. Really...

We were two couples for dinner. The menu is not enormous, but it touches all the meat/fish/poultry/veg bases. We started with shared grilled octopus and beet salad, both excellent. Three of us had the Fish of the Day (pan grilled whitefish) and one had the on-menu Pork Chop. Again, all excellent. The desserts, including ice cream creations and the eponymous... More

Came in on a Saturday night with friends and family. Desserts were over priced and not tasty at all. Highly disappointed. Probably wouldn't try it again.

Food was good. Mac and Cheese was excellent. Service was very good. The chef would not allow a side order of rice with my dish. (It was on the menu, with another dish) Not appreciated! The noise level was difficult for casual conversation. Lots of background noise. Four of us for dinner, one drink each and 3 deserts equals $200... More
