Made a visit to this restaurant on a business trip to Chicago. We actually took over a reservation that someone else couldn't use, and at the time of the reservation, at 5:30 PM, the restaurant was already completely packed. We tried to make our own reservations, but apparently booking has to be done way in advance if you don't want to wait until after 10 PM to eat.
However, the food was excellent--combinations of complex flavors and ingredients that one wouldn't normally expect, but all were quite well done. I would caution anyone that for any of the sites that assign this restaurant $$ out of $$$$, this may be a bit misleading. The reason I say this is that although most of the dishes are between $15 and $25 range, those are for small plate portions. The waiter suggested that for us, a couple, we should expect to order 4-5 dishes. For four small dishes, plus bread, and tap water, the bill was $92. So if the expectation is that most would order about that much food, plus maybe an alcoholic beverage, you would easily top $50 per person.
It's worth it if you are looking for some very special dishes that you would not find anywhere else. If you are looking to get a lot of food though, bring plenty of money. :)
