They seated our party of 5 at a table for 6, after about five minutes the hostess came back to ask us to leave the table because they needed it for someone else. We then had to wait 10 minutes after that and were seated at another table for 6 in the area with the bar. Not once did anyone apologize and I’m sure the only reason my party was asked to move was because we were all 17 year olds, no restaurant would’ve done this to adults.
I really love the openness and all of the natural light at this restaurant. I have dined here twice and have thoroughly enjoyed the food as well as the waitstaff. Dan R. was our waiter and he was wonderful.
The drink menu looked very appealing and we started out with the Southside and Ricky Bobby. While both were good, the Southside was the bomb and so followed not one, but a few more for my daughter and I.
For starters, we chose the calamari which was fantastic!!! Even as I sit here writing this review, I am reminded of how good it was and I want some more. My daughter enjoyed the impossible burger while I dined on the crispy cod sandwich. With sandwiches, you get a choice of fries or salads and we chose the sweet potato fries which were great.
For dessert, we had the chocolate chip ice cream sandwich and it was just ok. The cookies were large and thin whereas, I like smaller, thicker, and softer cookies. To make up for it, we stopped by the dessert counter and ordered quite a few cookies to go and they were all good.
The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the service was attentive, the food was delicious and we would definitely go back!
The prime burgers were delicious, but the sushi was just OK. The service was prompt and friendly. On the way out, we bought a package of the English Muffins, which were fabulous the next day with eggs. Overall, I would say this place is good, but a bit over priced.
Great . Good ambience and drinks
Went on a Saturday night for dinner with another couple. Food was good, but not great relative to the price point.
We had a great time at Summer House of Santa Monica. We had the spicy Tuna Roll appetizer and also the calamari. We loved both of them. Two of us had the Salmon which was very good and one had the trout and another just had tuna and watermelon appetizer for their main meal.Everyone enjoyed everything. Our server, Phillip was very good and attentive to us. We were celebrating a birthday so they brought the giant birthday cookie and a scoop of ice cream to share.
It was a fun place. Would definitely go back.
Nice place in the city to go with friends. Great vibe and good food.
Food was Great- loved it all. Great vibes- a lot of noise. The cookies were absolutely amazing!!
Love the big airy light-colored dining room. Great ambience. Wonderful service. Excellent salmon.
Great service as always!
Great place to go in the winter. Transports you to sunny California. Awesome food!
Amazing food. Wow! Fantastic service. Luis was friendly, fun and knew the entire menu. I asked him to surprise me with a great dish since everything appeared too good to make a decision. Will be returning soon!
Don’t get the Mahi Mahi Tacos! For $30 they were cold and tasted like over cooked and over seasoned Tilapia. The filet and calamari were great though!
The food was OK, calamari delicious! It seems overpriced for all the great restaurants you can eat at in Chicago. I didn't order it, but $21 for half a head of cauliflower (the cauliflower steak) steamed over salt water is ridiculous
Seated right away even though we were late for our reservation - very friendly staff from the front to departure. Valentine's Day was busy but they handled it extremely well. Food was excellent - always enjoy Summer House - lunch or dinner or a quick bite anytime.
We ate until we hurt, then pushed on! Haha The service was amazing and we had a blast.
It was our first night out after having our first born. Matt was awesome! Could not have been a better first night out after quite some time. Thank your
Beautiful atrium setting, great service, delicious food & fantastic bakery all in one!
Spent my birthday lunch here and it was a great experience! Try the calamari, it’s amazing.
