    King wild salmon in the picture. Really good, tasty, well cooked, funny part is eating fish with regular cutlery, not the appropriate for fish. But, the place it is a yes! Love it!!!!

    Very retro-as in Don Draper & his crew may come any moment. Beautifully restored, like the rest of the Chicago Athletic Association.Breakfast,lunch, dinner. Great for date nights. Eclectic menu.

    Ordered the beef tartare with gouda (wow!), duck entree, brussel sprouts slaw & chocolate mint dessert (yum!). If you sit at the bar, trust the bartender to make something for you. Great mixologists!

    This elegant restaurant feels like straddling different points in history, without any windows, a curved wooden bar, and slick tufted booths. The menu boasts both craft cocktails and creative food. Read more

    The food and drinks were on point; beautiful, creative, delicious. The service was outstanding. Professional, knowledgeable, with the ability to pick up on a fun crowd (ergo not stuffy). A+

    Halcyon Rosé ($14). "Delicate but with enough funk to let you know you are still dealing with Cab Franc. Get it while you can, as only 40 cases were produced," says sommelier Andrew Algren. Read more

    Delectable beef tartar, but the place is a truck to find, look for the neon light in the back right of the game room on the 2nd floor behind reception

    Cherry Circle Room, the Chicago Athletic Association's main restaurant is the perfect spot to dance the nigh away. If you don't want to come for dinner, stop by for one of the great cocktails! Read more

    Great cocktails, service and ambiance in a really fun room. Diverse options on the menu. Most interesting take on a Caesar salad. Other dishes were also goood but consistently a bit too salty.

    Was a guest in the hotel & dropped by twice. Once for drinks and dinner. What a place. Dark paneling, great service, good drinks, and food. I could move in and be right at home.

    In Peter Coenen, Cherry Circle Room has a chef who cooks with bold assurance and sweats the details, delivering more than his modest menus promise. Read more

    If you order the leg of lamb, it will be served tableside. Just beware that when it says it serves two, they mean two hungry giants.

    Good for a night cap - the bartenders are helpful and friendly. Weekend brunch was painfully slow. The food was good but lots of young service help make it feel like amateur hour.

    The best dinner and wine I've had in my entire life. The risotto is to die for. Such a beautiful setting also.

    Classy joint. The room itself is gorgeous, the cocktails are delicious, and they have some badass matchbooks at the front.

    Best Manhattan in Chicago (ask for Buffalo Trace) if the burger is on the menu do not pass this up! Service is exemplary!

    The lack of windows, huge curved wooden bar, slick tufted booths and symbols emblazoned on everything feel like Don Draper’s supper club meets illuminati secret society. Read more

    The Egg Benedict is good, and you can also change the Pork belly to bacon.

    The decor and wine list outshine the food. Off flavor combinations. Most dishes had disappointing parts. Simple salad = bagged salad + generic bottle dressing.

    Amateur hour on NYE. It was a combo NYE and birthday celebration for our party but wished we would have stayed home. Food was ok, service was ok…so why bother?

    Ambiance is old school - which is ok. Menu doesn’t offer much choice, basically a place your grandpa would have liked back in his day... with the menu frozen in time.
