“the expected classical American Bar for foreigners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

In Chicago's downtown and very close of Michigan Ave. and John Hancock Center, we went there because our first option fails; and we were lucky!

It is a classic American bar for drinks and food, the service is very nice and professional and the quality of the food high.

Two of us ordered New York strip, and they were nice, but other friend choose barbecue ribs, and they were really incredible!

“A great surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Had a work dinner here so limited menu. Great appetizers brought to table (3 tiers). Had the 8 ounce filet mignon and wish I had more room in my stomach to eat the whole thing, best steak I've had in a long time.

“Great Steak. Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Our company made a reservation late in the day and they accommodated us well. I had a coffee rubbed steak. Pretty good.. NOTE: 16oz is a lot of beef. Every bite was like the first.. juicy and perfect. I really enjoyed our meal. The bar was also enjoyable. You really feel comfortable and able to unwind here.

“Interesting and tasty fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

For lunch we had kale salad with apples and dates, and artisan bread pizza; both were excellent. Service was a bit slow, but we were in no hurry.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Made a reservation here earlier in the day on a Friday. Enjoyed a nice walk to the restaurant from the L. Grabbed an outside table and got a wonderful server. Excellent cocktails poured just right. Awesome menu. We were unhurried and enjoyed our meal and service. One of the best pork chops I have ever had. My wife's prime rib was equally as good. Nice selection of sides, the mushrooms were marvelous. Can't wait to return!
