Recommended to eat. Good and in very convenient location. Friendly staff, clean tables. We welcomed the 2018 there with a very good friends and the restaurant staff were so familiar. They offered Champagne at might night. Very good place.

Had dinner here solo on a Monday night. Place was pretty quiet but service was excellent. Had a Caesar salad which was grilled and excellent. Also had the Chicken Quesadilla which was made with smaller thicker pita type bread with mushroom, very good

We chanced upon this place after watching the Blue Man Group. Not too many people on a Sunday evening. We had the Arugula and Prosciutto Pizza for starters and that was good. I ordered the Halsted Street Burger (Canadian Bacon, Maytag Bleu Cheese, Arugula, Mardi Gras Slaw) which I had with Parmesan Truffle Fries. Burger was Certified Black Angus 10 oz on a Brioche Bun. The burger was excellent! The pork chop, though, was unexciting.

Had brunch here with friends. Food was mheh, Service was terrible.

Every order was messed up. Half the food we ordered didn’t show up and we had to ask again. Water glasses never refilled. Never asked if we wanted a second cocktail. For a neighborhood place one would expect a higher level of service and attentiveness.

Got there early for dinner (pre-show). Bar service was very slow although there were only two of us at the bar initially.
Seated with group of 8, so this is a challenge, but it took a long time to get our order and some details were missed on delivery of food.
Food was generally quite good, from fish to other entrees to appetizers to salads. Interesting salad choices.
