Had breakfast here as part of our stay at the Renaissance...had to wait to be seated although there were open tables, and service was slow and inconsistent after. Water wasn't brought over for fifteen minutes despite numerous requests, and didn't come until after our breakfast...More

A team member and I were both in Chicago, and we needed to have a long conversation over a reasonably-priced breakfast. So, I made a reservation at Great Street, because it had a central location. The restaurant was a bit difficult to find upon entering...More

For those who work in the Loop, this is a great restaurant when you want good food & a quiet, out of the way place. I've never needed a reservation and usually have great privacy due to the small number of other diners. Service is...More

The food and service was very good. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The server was very good and attentive. The only drawback was the lighting....way to bright! The lighting killed the ambiance. The food saved the experience.
