This has always been our favorite restaurant in Chicago. We went for my wife's birthday. We arrived a little early and decided to have a martini at the crowded bar while we waited. Shortly, our table was ready and we sat down and ordered a bottle of wine. Now, the wine. List categories is not like anything you have ever seen before, but I knew that. But, this time I was only able to find a decent bottle that we liked for $160. Must more than at previous times. It was a great bottle, and we both had the sturgeon plus appetizer. I paid the bill, and as we were putting our coats on at the door, the bartender stated that we had not paid our bar bill. He produced a dinner check for $250. I told him that it was not mine as I had just paid $350 plus a $60 tip for $410. I told him that I would have to back to the table and view the itemized bill that I just paid. The manager finally told me not to bother. The need a new bartender that is able to communicate with the waitstaff to insure correct transfer of charges. Accosting patrons at the door negates the entire experience. I'm sure that if Billy Lawless was there that night, and not been out of town, this probably would not have happened. Unfortunately, it is no longer our favorite place in Chicago .
