  • For anybody who suffers from restaurant fatigue, the notion of a cocktail on a specials menu is irresistible, even more so when its described as a blend of pear-infused vodka, plum wine and sake.
  • Chicago is the epicenter of the urban gardening movement, and its leader is this eco-conscious establishment with a certified organic rooftop farm that produces beets, okra, shallots, beans, and more.
  • try one of the drinks made with home-infused liquors...
  • Always a delicious meal at this restaurant. The scallop risotto was heavenly.
  • A bit pricey but the good is local and organic. Kids meals are $5-6, which is pretty average. Plentiful seating that isn't too cramped. The interior is really pretty. Service is spotty.
  • Great wedding venue!
  • The Sweet Potato Fries and Goat Cheese dip were great, even as left overs. The Cheese Burger was one of the best I've ever had... the texture and flavor profile was just right.
  • Order the huge Uncommon Chopped Salad and get a taste of Farmer Dave's rooftop crops. - CBS Chicago
  • Ordered the bad apple: vanilla infused jim beam, apple cider, caramel torani, cinnamon. YUM!
  • Great food, great beer, even better happy hour specials.
  • The food was good but the service was so slow. The waiter was nice but absent. We had the flat bread, salads and chicken sandwiches and everything was good.
  • Food is great, service is horrible. Horrible.
  • Get a spot by the fireplace.
  • Monday Night Martini Special. Try Lemon/Ginger Martini
  • This place has a very small menu, the wait staff is super snobby. the food is decent but not worth the price.
  • one of chicago's ecofriendliest restaurants. try: organic Granola & Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes w/ sweet & tangy organic concord grape syrup & Sweet potato fries+goat cheese fondue are also very tasty!
  • Brunch was yummy. I recommend the breakfast melt. Coffee and hash browns were also great!
  • Take the tykes for a tour of the rooftop garden to see where the restos tasty ingredients grow.
  • Just down the street from the Leather Archives & Museum, a great place to grab a bite after your visit to the LA&M.
  • Always great.
