    Unfortunately, my lobster was severely overcooked and given the price of the meal that was a disappointment. It also took over 8 minutes to be addressed by the wait staff after being seared which was strange given there were only about 6 other tables with patrons. It as not work the value or the experience in my opinion. P

    Had brunch at this lovely restaurant. A bit overpriced however the food was pretty good. Service was great and while its a bit fancier of a brunch option it doesn’t feel stuffy

    We decided to book a reservation for an early mother's day brunch. Service was slower than we would have liked with the kids but the issue I had was even though I mentioned that we were celebrating both on open table when making the reservation and to the server not much felt special. My wife remarked at the end of the meal that she had only ordered one drink simply because the server didn't check back on us after dropping off our food. I guess I expected more. Food was delicious!

    It's my favorite resturant in Chicago, the grand scale room, vast spaces between tables, grown up elegance that's becoming a rarity everywhere. Food is excellent, service is attentive and professional. Nothing better anywhere!
