Description: Sable Kitchen & Bar: Classic Era Atmosphere in Chicago's River North Neighborhood Step into Sable Kitchen & Bar. Discover what you've been waiting for: A new American gastro-lounge that artfully reinstates the cocktail to its rightful throne, a place where you'll lose yourself in a menu of Chef Heather Terhune's soul-satisfying social plates of delectable hors d'oeuvres, fresh fish, meats, sustainable selections from the farm and garden, alongside a collection of hand-crafted brick-oven flatbreads. Adjacent to Kimpton's Hotel Palomar Chicago, Sable is a refreshing update for today, where the glamour of the 1940's mingles effortlessly with modern industrial touches. The effect is undeniably chic and immensely comfortable. Exceptional Food to Match Exquisite Drinks For some, Sable emerges as the spot of choice for dining any time of day. For others, it becomes a much-needed chance to revel in the purity of handcrafted cocktails and a chance to sample a diverse selection of wines. But for all, Sable surfaces as a dining destination in Chicago's River North neighborhood on par with the city's most acclaimed restaurants. Drop in for a very special drink. Share a plate or two. And enjoy Sable's special blend of contemporary class and soothing Chicago hospitality.

This is a great restaurant for tapas and wine. We had several plates for sharing and highly recommend the seasonal heirloom tomato & peach salad, steak tartar, bacon wrapped dates & pulled pork sliders. We also had the trout and were not overwhelmed with it.
The service was slow but our waitress apologized for forgetting that she had a table on the patio! the busboys were very good, frequently filling our water glasses & clearing plates.

You can't go wrong at Sable! It's the coolest atmosphere and the food is out of this world! Chef Heather really knows what she's doing. The cocktail and wine selections are top notch (try the Jack Rose; Humphrey Bogart's fave cocktail!). The service is perfection. Although my friends and I like to try new places, we always make time to return to Sable. Also, if you can, ask for a booth on the kitchen side. It's an open kitchen and it's really fun to watch the food being prepared!

Went here after dinner... And got some desserts... Cappuccino, Strawberry rhubarb handmade pie with cream cheese ice cream... Dark Chocolate Souffle Cake with salted caramel ice cream and Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake with vanilla ice cream!!! Sooooooo delish!!! All the ice cream was paired up nicely and the cream cheese ice cream was really good!!!! HOWEVER.... Our waiter kind of ruined my experience there.... Obviously, He didn't want to work.. Didn't care.. Checking his watch..!! When I eat dessert, I want to chat with my friends and enjoy each bite but I felt rushed :( I think I took two bites and he brought out the check!!! Eeeeeeeekkkkkk... I might give this place one more chance tho bc of their desserts!!!

Couple dinner. We got there at about 4:30 and had a nice window seat. The wait staff was excellent and very helpful in recommending items from the menu. The watermelon, red pepper and mint chef's bite was wonderful. Ordered items to share and we enjoyed every last bite.

It was loud and lively - we sat in the bar as we hadn't made reservations for the restaurant. The service was great and the food wonderful. We had the Mac and cheese, beet salad and short rib sliders all excellent and perfect for sharing. Nice drinks menu as well.
