My husband and I were told all over the city that you have to go to the west loop...we ventured out one night and were not disappointed. We found our way to Maudes and had a great tartare, and super cool cocktails. We were happy to find such a cool, dark , and interesting place!

This place had tasty drinks and good service, but the prices were a little high even during happy hour. If you're not on a budget come here for the drinks, but there are cheaper options that are nearly as good nearby.

Came to Maude's for my borthday and safe to say didn't regret the decision. Great range of classic cocktails with a twist and a good wine list. Food was SUPERB and the waitress was attentive and knowledgable on the menu, offering advice when asked without spending the whole time hovering over us. Had the French onion soup, mussels and casoulet.... More

This was our 2nd visit, and our food and service were excellent again. The ambiance is also great, and helps us to feel as though we're in France. We had the foie gras pate, shaved salad, beef short ribs, and chocolate mousse to share. They were all excellent. The pate and beef, especially. The pate was SO smooth, and the... More

This dining experience is one for the book of memories. A small, quaint little establishment presented such dynamic dishes and superb service. If we had any issue, of which I do not recall, they would have been trivial. The ambiance of Maude's is cozy and minimalist. I love the contrast between the brick walls and metro tiles: abrasive meets smooth.... More

Had one of the best meals we have ever had at Maude's. Between the ambience, music, service, and most importantly the food, it was a delightful experience. We were there for 4 hours tasting 6 different dishes and some great French wine. Downstairs has a lively bar vibe, upstairs has a more mellow vibe with leather couches, real candles, and... More

This is a funky, fun spot for drinks, apps or dinner. Decor is fun. Put me in the mood to enjoy myself. Menu is varied with a French theme, and food was very good. There are a lot of great spots on Randolph, but this is one of the better ones.

Maude's hip name and decor makes diner's expect: a) creative French menu b) innovative drink list c) quirky good service d) all of the above In reality, Maude's wasn't spot on for any of the above. The restaurant is a " near miss" on each point, which is a shame. They are close but lacking in each area. Server was... More

We always try new restaurants when we visit our son in Chicago. Maude's is now one of our favorites!! We requested the upstairs and our waiter was outstanding. The food was exceptional and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

From the outside it is a turn off, but go inside and enjoy a narrow but darn good taste treats. Cheese and onion appetizer, vegetable (!) salad, and scottish salmon were plates we shared. My wife had snails. The bread was excellent. We got desert elsewhere. I will go there again. Ben H.
