Perfect place to get that last drink or a bite to eat before heading home or to your room at the Hilton Chicago. Service was excellent, very accommodating and attentive - drinks had "kind" pours and the naked chicken wings were fantastic. Relaxing place to catch-up with friends or a date with a nice environment and not too loud.

All the food was delicious and the service was great. Is a little pricey at $27 each and there was not an option to order from a menu. You can... More

Was an overnight guest in the hotel and wanted a casual bite to eat. The pasta in the bar was quite tasty, delivered piping hot. Service was so/so - they appeared to be understaffed to handle the conventioneers. (I was a solo traveler) Overall, hit the spot and was super convenient to not leave the hotel.

The breakfast buffet offered enormous variety and delicious foods; menu items for breakfast and lunch were equally delicious. And the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable.

They really improved this bar and made it upscale. A total opposite in location and atmosphere from Kitty O'Shea's. Which is a great thing. Bourbon Selection was top notch. Loved the Ocean's Bourbon. Nice place for a pre or post dinner cocktail.

If you are Hilton Gold (or get the Bed 'n Breakfast deal) please check out the really great breakfast buffet! You can get eggs cooked to order by a friendly chef, and there is a WIDE assortment of fruit, pastries, and other items. Even dumplings, noodles, and congee!! Wonderful staff, great experience. I started the day off right!!

The breakfast buffet at the beautiful Hilton hotel includes made to order eggs and omelets, good coffee, a bounty of fresh fruit and baked goods, meats, a variety of juices (not "fresh squeezed", though) and excellent service. There was a traditional Chinese breakfast offered as well as a gluten free breakfast bar. Staff is welcoming, friendly, but not intrusive. It... More
