The decor is from the 90's. Based on food quality they are overpriced. They arent the only restaurant with a view so thats not a good reason to come back.

First time visiting was very excited about the dinner. Was seated right next to the kitchen and our window was the only window that was filthy dirty so our view was awful. Our waiter took our food order and never saw him again. Not even a check in or if we wanted a second glass of wine. The food was mediocre... nothing to ride home about. We had the salmon and the short ribs. Had to ask 5 different random people walking by if they could help us and the only person that helped was a young man and it was his first night working. Got hazelnut chocolate cake and it tasted burnt and couldn’t even finish the first bite. Even after that we got no sympathy or help and couldn’t wait to leave.

Charged $400 for a 5-course meal. I admit, I did not read the fine print, however, not a value for the full $650 paid for the experience.

Went for Valentine’s Day. One server for about 15 tables. Preset menu, yet the meal somehow took over two hours to be completed. The music kept having random stops where the whole restaurant would fall silent. The food was only okay—not worth the $400 charged. My medium steak was bleeding like my heart. I’ve been here before on a a normal night and if it was pretty good. Likely not coming back after this experience....

Had the ABSOLUTE worst Valentine's day experience. Had prepaid reservations at 8. We were seated at 9:10pm. No one took our order until 9:40. Food started coming out at around 10:10pm. We left the restaurant at 11:45pm. The food was not nearly up to the quality of what you would expect for the price range. It ruined all of our other plans we had for that evening. Horrible scheduling and management by the restaurant.

We went here for Valentine’s Day dinner - we were seated where you couldn’t see the view (yes you still pay the same price), they forgot to bring our 1st and 3rd courses, took 30 minutes to get a drink and the food was mediocre. Believe every table around us was complaining about the service / experience which made the night rather unpleasant. Will not come here again and will advise others to do the same.

It was a little to hectic for my wife and I being it was Valentines day. First our bill was $0 then they say we owe $107 on a $51 Moscato bottle. I was a little confused. Made the best it, but I would ONLY return were there is not a set course meal and we are able to order our own likings on the menu.

Terrible manager in the front, I don’t normally leave message. The waiter and everyone was fine , he didn’t say single thing when we were leaving and when we came in. Also, he was so rude when he was answering the phone too, basically I wouldn’t recommend to anyone who lives in Chicago. If you are from somewhere else, maybe you can just go to look around chicago.

Amazing view. Not pretentious,but still very nice and classy ambiance. Our server was great,not intrusive nor pushy. The food was ok, not the highlight because I feel you can eat filet mignon and rack of lamb like the one we got at most places downtown.

This was such a great restaurant with a wonderful view! Go when the weather is clear from clouds. I ordered the duck and it was absolutely superb!! The flavors for the glaze and purée contrasted beautifully with the duck and the chef did I wonderful job cooking the duck it to perfection. My mouth is watering just thinking about how good it was.

Beautiful place if the weather was better but the service could of been better the food was ok. I came for restaurant week and the waiter was a little cold when asked about it. I wasn’t impressed with non of my dishes started with lobster bisque soup was watering and not appealing so they replaced it with salad that was tasty. The salmon was cook a little to hard for me. I don’t eat meat and I didn’t eat all my salmon either. I would try this place again hopefully better service and food

I saw a poster that said ... DINNER FOR TWO FIVE COARSE MEAL FROM JANUARY 20th to FEBRUARY 5th ..$50 EACH PERSON . we were there JANUARY 22nd ... our bill for two was over $325 I get it .... but why did our waiter not mention this I would of saved $155 and a bigger tip for him... seemed like they worked on commission ....

I went to this restaurant for my Birthday and I have to say it was not at all how we thought it would be. I made a reservation for 10 and then they asked us to come in early. We did. We were basically rushed by the manager to put in our order for dinner. Didn’t give us to really look over the menu and decide what we would like, they came and picked up our platee last like 15-20 mins after we got our food. This for me was the worst experience for my birthday in a restaurant that wasn’t even full or really busy. I will probably never go there again and honestly wouldn’t recommend it. ( I do have to include trust true server that we had for the night , being that it was his first day was superb he gave us exceptional service but the Manager on the other hand needs a little more training on Customer Service. Especially when it’s a special night such as someone’s birthday... pushing to close early than expected and rushing customers is not cool at all.)
