Yes, their food is delicious. However, I have to confess, it's the upside down apple pie that has hooked me! It's a must. I have mine with the icecream on the side.

Visited here during CRW February 2017 for dinner. Me and my daughter had reservations and were greeted warmly and quickly upon arrival. Our waiter was very attentive in the beginning but as time passed he quickly became distant and I literally had to walk to the other side of the restaurant to ask for my bill. This is unacceptable in... More

They serve the most tasty delicious small dishes between 4-7pm weekdays (prices ranges between $3-$9 a dish). Friendly staff. Great location. Nice bar. A must every time a visit Chicago. Thank you!

I went to their bar to watch the Bears Packers game. Great service, a really wonderful choice of food and the service was top drawer. A peaceful pleasant afternoon.

We ate here again this Christmas day evening as we had enjoyed last years meal so much. I am glad to say that this experience just as good as before--the food excellent, service friendly and we were not hurried in any way. Tried the bread pudding as a Christmas treat though we thought we were full--it vanished quickly and completely... More

With the many restaurants to choose from,this incarnation of this chain needs to step it up a bit. We have visited this chain in 2 other cities,and this restaurant needs to bring their A game. It was too dark to read the menu,but our food was good. We would go elsewhere next time,and spend our dollars giving another restaurant a... More

I expected more for the pricepoint. The portions were fair to generous. The atmosphere was consistent with a Las Vegas hotel dining room with taxidermied fish on the wall( the chain is owned by a casino owner). The staff were pleasant but a little stiff for no good reason ( not a 5 star Ritz dining room). The experience left... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
