This is by far the best kosher resturant that I have ever been to which includes great NY resturants. But you defiantly pay for this resturant as it's quite pricey but omg they have such good food!!! Totally worth its price and they offer great service, great wine and great ambience.

The best sushi and steaks I have ever had!! Service was great as well. I come here about once a week and I have ordered almost everything off the menu, there is not one item that I did not enjoy. Everything is absolutely delicious.

Shallots has a very pleasant staff ready to make your eating experience a tasty one. The sushi menu is extensive & good. The regular menu is very good. The price for both are very high. They have a special take out menu for the weekend which is ridiculously high, & could use help in taste, which is surprising since the... More

Was in a party of five for dinner. This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant. This visit was the worst. Appetizer, soup, main course and dessert averaged $ 100 per person. Service was not good b\c they were shortstaffed. One order was completely forgotten and given at the end as take-out. A $ 40 steak was very small and... More

Shallotts offers an excellent menu with a variety of foods. Their sushi is probably the best that I have ever tasted. They offer a good choice of meat and fish. The staff is friendly and very helpful. A waiter/waitress is available whenever one is needed.

Shallots Bistro provided us with a lovely evening. We ordered one sushi roll and a very generous meat and chicken appetizer platter. Both were delicious and fun to share and eat. Each couple shared a main course. It was still too much food. They didn't charge for splitting the entree. only one of us had wine and although we had... More

We were quite pleased about both the food and the service. was the bread hard, yes. But the steak was tasty, the fish was well prepared and the citron chicken was a hit with my older kids. All in all, very pleasant (if pricey). Even Mom was happy!

I am not kosher but have always enjoyed exploring area eateries while visiting kosher friends in Chicago. This was an amazing experience; the food and service were outstanding and the variety very impressive. Even the kosher diary "substitutions" were extremely well done. I will return-with or without my kosher friends😊👍

I was at shallots tonight and was very favorably impressed. I didn't bother with the standard menu of amazing steak or fish! I decided to go tapas style and just order appetizers! See pictures! I was not disappointed! That was the way to go!

Thank Sandcmk
