    Food is truly excellent. Wonderful flavor and display. The experience is a bit bizarre. Dishes are introduced by “top 100 soups in Chicago” rather than explaining what the ingredients are. Just sort of ruined the intimacy and made it feel campy. We were also asked to arrive 15 before our reservation for better service and then weren’t seen for 10 minutes after we arrived. There was a big party in the back room, so I think they were trying to get our order in before theirs.

    Herb lived up to the Michelin star, with absolutely exquisite food at a great price. The plating and presentation was unique, wait staff were kind and thoughtful, and we never felt like timing was too slow or fast. We definitely plan on returning.

    Food and service from the chef herself was excellent. The place is cozy. It's BYOB and only prix fixe, they don't have an actual menu to chose from but you can tell them your preferences, allergies, etc.

    The food is simply superb, and the ambiance is very nice. The service was at once personable and problematic--the owner and chef made sure to stop by the table several times, which was lovely. But the courses were rushed to us, and we felt pushed to eat quickly, which we did not want to do. Also, two of the party asked that their main course be moderately hot instead of hot, and the waiter seems to have forgotten that between the table and the kitchen! Nonetheless, this is a really inventive and wonderful restaurant, a joy to have in the Edgewater neighborhood.

    The owner chef presides over a somewhat strange operation. No printed menu. Water is served in plastic bottles! Your only option is a 5- course prix fixe costing $65 per person. The food is excellent and well prepared. The service is terrible and slow. You are presented with a non-itemized bill including 20% service charge. Overall impression is not favorable although there is plenty of scope for improvement.

    We’ve been several times before and loved it. This time we waited 40 minutes for anyone to come to our table. The service was incredibly slow, to the point where we skipped a course because it had already been 3.5 hours and our babysitter had to get home. We had to ask for our final course to go. They still charged us the full amount. The staff are super friendly, but they need to fix their operations as this was a poor experience for us. We were starving as we didn’t receive any food until almost 75 minutes after our initial reservation time.

    Best Thai ever! Loved the 5 course dinner, service and atmosphere. Chef Patty came to our table to explain the menu. It was so great to see her right away. I liked the atmosphere since was a special occassion, yet a warm setting. The food is off the charts, so delicious and a work of art!! A couple of notes for future guests: Restaurant is BYOB (without chillers), so white wine lovers come prepared. You will get bottled water due to COVID, it is ok. They will switch back at some point. The menu is not clear, you need to trust the chef and be ok with the price. It was $85/person including your 5 courses, BYOB corkage fee, tax & tip. It is worth every penny!

    DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT! This restaurant is a SCAM!!! - Scams people. -No menus and pushes to try their prefixed menu - Extra Charges and ridiculously high prices -Overpriced -Bad servers and lack of proper communication -I think Patty hiring international students who are not legal to work I should have known that the restaurant I picked would end up being a terrible experience. I thought I was going to eat at a high-class place, surrounded by fancy décor, with attentive staff and great food. But it was the complete opposite. It was horrible. I think this restaurant is a scam and one of the most unorganized restaurants. I am going to report this restaurant to officials.

    The quality of the experience at Herb has, unfortunately, gone down over the years. This used to feel like a hidden gem, a great secret due to the fair prices, BYOB status and high quality of food. This most recent visit lasted three hours due to lack of staff and attention and cost way more than anticipated. Our group wanted to be understanding with the staffing issues - we know this is a common issue and we were willing to be flexible. When we first sat down, we were greeted by the chef which was pretty cool, however, she didn’t give us a menu, asked if we had any allergies and then just told us we would do blind tasting. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the current prices and the biggest frustration was the $9/person corkage fee. I know prices were bound to increase due to current events, but our table was charged an extra $27 to drink our own wine and we weren’t even offered an ice bucket. The food was good but the menu has not been updated recently and the disappointing part was that one of our diners received a main entree that was way too spicy for him and another diner strongly dislikes mushrooms but was given the mushroom soup, both a result of the blind tasting we felt obligated to partake in. We barely saw any waitstaff and when they were at our table, it was never for long. Overall, the food was good but the quality of service and price increases/surprise corkage fee are reasons that we will not be returning any time in the near future.

    Truly a gem with booking. I can't believe it's taken me this long to visit this creative spot. The food is on pointe. The service is enthusiastic ... but admittedly a little slow. However, take the time to really enjoy everything this restaurant offers - from the fantastic plates to the warmth of the Chef. You will not be disappointed.

    Food was amazing. We had no idea we were signing up for a prix fixe menu. The Herb website is not clear at all. Cost was $85/person for 5 courses each. I see the website says $65/person so I think we were overcharged. This restaurant has no beverage service just bottled water. Food was AMAZING, however, I wish the website would have been more clear on pricing, that it is a bring your own beverage or alcohol restaurant. Service was also odd as they tried to pace us with the table next to us. Just not sure this is a repeat due to the setup. But it was the best Thai food we have ever had but the pricing was out of line, and to now see that we have overcharged $20/person ($80 total) that is really upsetting.

    If I could give Herb a six-star rating, I would! We are foodies, and dine out a lot! Somehow, Herb had never come onto our radar until we stumbled upon it last Friday, and we are so glad we did. We were treated to a beautiful, six-course tasting menu, and every single bite - from start to finish - was absolutely delicious. The service was literally perfect. The ambiance is so quaint! Our group of four left with lasting memories of a wonderful experience and happy tastebuds. I highly recommend Herb!!

    You'll go to this place for the food. The service and experience need a little care and feeding. If this restaurant would hire someone who understands how to manage and run a "fine dining" floor, they'd be unstoppable -- even as a BYOB locale. The pre-fixe menu was interesting and focused. The preparation was inventive and the tastes were incredible. Overall, the food experience was incredibly positive. At the same time, I expected a "fine dining" Thai experience based on the description. Instead, they didn't clearly denote BYOB, individual plastic water bottles were brought without glasses, they ran out of soda and with fine dining, I would have expected table cloths and cloth napkins, which actually might help dampen the noise level. Still, I'd go back. The food really was that inventive and delicious.
