    An absolutely phenomenal experience start to finish. We are still talking about the food (days later), and the atmosphere was perfect for an elevated, but casual night. If we ever find ourselves in Chicago again, we will definitely be back.

    This is my second visit. I liked the well appointed room with tables situated far from each other that conversation is possible this is very RARE. The decor conveys harmony. Patrons were of all ages. No one was loud, yet all looked happy with their food and drinks. I came back with a guest last night. The fried calamari was exceptional. The shaved vegetable salad which they prepared a cheese-and cream free version for us was very refreshing as is. Fish tacos on corn tortillas were very good. Our server was attentive, friendly, not overbearing or condescending. The price with a glass of good red wine per person was reasonable for an exceptional dining experience. I'm afraid with good reviews the place may lose its charming laid back atmosphere food may decline in quality or servers may lose their enthusiasm. I hope none happens.

    The holiday decor was outstanding, the server was energetic, friendly and efficient. The food was historic Walnut Room fare. The extra touch of a fairy princess assisting my grandchild with a special wish made the experience even more memorable.

Discover Chicago

Despite what some believe, Chicago's nickname of the Windy City is attributed to noisy politicians rather than the lake breeze. No matter where the wind is coming from, visitors should be ready to enjoy some amazing local food. From vegan to carnivore, if you eat, Chicago will thrill. A visit to the Second City will call for a second slice, so be sure you show up for famous Chicago deep-dish pizza with a large appetite. This world-class city is a whirlwind of things to see and do and features foods from all over the globe. Fans of spicy Thai food will revel in the many choices available, and fans of coffee will be delighted with the many shops that serve fresh-roasted cups of joe.
