  • Calamari. Very yum. So taste. Wow.
  • A great place to get that summer vibe during the cold Chicago winters. And fantastic food! The other tips don't steer you wrong. Must haves: calamari & burrata.
  • Felt like summer even in the middle of chilly Chicago autumn. Retractable roof will kill in nice weather!
  • Nice, fresh food. The fluke appetizer was great. The tacos were good too but the rice was a little under cooked.
  • Venetian Plaster Interior Finish
  • I was expecting more of theur brunch... Brunch "deserts" were amazing... In particular French Toast!
  • Make a reservation! We had one, and even we had to wait a while. It was packed even at 10 pm on a weekday
  • Voted Best Fancy Brunch by Bitches Who Brunch in 2015!
  • Burrata cheese was amazing!! Definitely share plates here!
  • Great spot! It took us a really long time to decide what we wanted because everything looked so good! Went with the tuna tacos which were really yummy! Definitely recommend! Cant wait to go back!
  • Beautiful place but service isn't attentive. Also, our table was very sticky.
  • Calamari, burrata, lobster pasta. All must eats.
  • Amazing Place! Love the atmosphere!
  • The wine list is solid and stocked with mostly California wines worth ordering, like the rich and fruity Frogs Leap cabernet.
  • The guacamole is AMAZZZING
  • Much better dinner then lunch. Calamari and warm biscuits are the best items.
  • All-around amazing! Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. Never had anything I didn't like here. Some of my faves: almost summer latte, breakfast tostadas, smoked salmon benedict. Can't go wrong!
  • The burrata was amazing.
  • Had a reservation for 830, didn't get seated until 9. Service was less than stellar, but food is worth it. Chips/Gauc amazing. Trifecta fudge cake not as described, still tasty. Cookies 2 go!
  • Great ambience and great food...calamari and carmelized brussels sprouts are awesome
