    Fora ambiance was amazing! Live music, small noise volume, great service, spacious setting, comfortable booths!! Food just mediocre; no real WOW factors for food. A great place for drinks and conversation.

    We weren’t greeted by a server because of confusion about who had the table, and while food runners were helpful, we had to flag down the server for everything. She was spending her time cleaning behind the bar and never checked on us and never brought water when we asked. The food was ok, but not amazing.

    Restaurant is in a boutique hotel lobby across from Google HQ in Chicago. Lovely atmosphere and service. Comfortable tables with couches for booths. We enjoyed the food, we went during restaurant week. Kitchen was understaffed so food was slow, but they gave us a free round of drinks while we waited.

    I guess I’m leaving this review because the experience was so disparate from my expectations from the Open Table reviews and photos. It’s the restaurant in the first floor of the Emily Hotel. Feels more like a commercial office amenity space than a restaurant. Food was good but the vibe was completely dead - on an evening when all the restaurants in the neighborhood were packed. Was not impressed.

    The shrimp appetizer was amazing. However the chimichurri steak was not good, it was not warm a butter infusion they put on top of the steak didn't even melt. The staff was great they did their best to try to make it better but the steak was a fail.

    Fora was good for a hotel lobby restaurant, but of course not up to the same standard as all the surrounding incredible restaurants in Fulton Market and West Loop. Side note: my friend was charged $28 for an off menu buttered noodles for her 2 year old, which is why they lost points on value.

    Not great. It lives up to the "hotel restaurant" category perfectly. Service was super slow. Food was mediocre. By the time the food came, we were not hungry anymore. We had to beg for water when our glasses were empty. There was no proactive service. We had to constantly ask for help. With so many amazing restaurants in the area, I'd rather wait an hour for a table across the street to be honest.

    I recently had the privilege of celebrating both running the Chicago Marathon and my birthday at Fora, and I can't praise this establishment enough. From the moment we walked in, the entire experience was nothing short of exceptional. The food at Fora was not just good; it was phenomenal. Every dish we tried was a culinary masterpiece, and the flavors were out of this world. The staff was equally impressive. Jesus, our host for the evening, went above and beyond to ensure that our celebration was memorable. His attentive service truly elevated the dining experience. Our server, Sarah, deserves special mention as well. She recommended the spicy shrimp option, and I must say it was a fantastic choice. The dish had just the right amount of heat and flavor to make it a standout Definitely recommend stopping by

We hope to see you again!

    The waitress we had was patient and knowledgeable. The food was pretty good. However, the chicken wing was a bit of a fry from my taste, which made it dry. The decor was nice and clean tables were reasonably spaced. There’s a indoor and outdoor option and a bar with a good selection.  they’re happy hours 50% off on certain items and drinks. There is meter parking outside.

    Thank you for taking the time to review Fora. I am glad that our service team was able to provide you with a comfortable experience. We also appreciate the note on the wings. I have passed that information along to our Chef to make the adjustments. We would love for you to come back at try some of our other options as well. Just as a reminder we have a great brunch on the weekends, with bottomless mimosas.

    Food quality was poor. Pasta was undercooked. Salad came without the grilled salmon. Ordered pasta, got chicken instead mistakenly. Service too slow. Noise level too high. Promised patio but was closed off for that evening!

    It was not what I expected. It was like they piled everyone on top of each other. Had to send my plate back because it was wrong. Don’t think I would visit again. But the rooftop on the other hand was entertaining before the rooftop cinema. I will visit those two again. Just have dinner elsewhere.

    The restaurant is super cute and located on the ground floor of a very lovely boutique hotel. The hostess and our wait staff person (Lexi) were amazing. Drinks were delicious, food was great and experience was just overall lovely. Would come back in a heartbeat. FYI, the Lemonberry Drop and the meatballs as appetizers were my absolute favorite. Go for happy hour and get both of those (and several other selections) for half off.

    The service was very challenging and the restaurant was empty. The food was closer to upscale bar food than I was expecting it was good. The drinks were good and space is cute. If the service was better we would have had a much different experience!
