    Wine-vinegar lollipops arouse the palate for plates like venison tartare, lamb loin, or strawberry-goat cheese macarons.– Green Guide Editor

    Wow - incredibly technical, delicate and beautiful food that will leave your mouth agape long after the last bite is gone. More words won't do Graham Elliot's food justice.. reserve a table already!

    They play a lot of Arcade Fire

    Get the drink the Freebird: tequila, lavender, honey and a dash of maraschino. Delicious and not too sweet!

    The dining experience was AMAZING and I highly recommend Chef Graham Elliot's take on s'mores. The sweetness of the graham, ganache and chocolate really was the highlight of my visit. ;-)

    The Chef's Tasting Menu is a unique experience. It is a must do.

    I ate here two years ago and wasn't that impressed. I came back last night and was blown away. Definitely deserving if the second Michelin Star. Loved the tasting menu and music.

    I only got good vibes from all the servers, and I totally have a crush on the sommelière.

    Great food. Great chef. Even saw a man get down on one knee and propose to his girlfriend. She said yes.

    If you can, go for the full progression in the repertoire menu. Food this ambitious and seamless can only be found at a few restaurants in the city: Read more

    Inspired flavors and textures keep us coming back, as do new-to-us ingredients such as marsh samphire and dishes like Colorado lamb with pea cannelloni and roasted Jidori chicken with carrots. Read more

    Absolutely delicious, fantastic service. Not worth leaving hungry after spending over $400.

  • Stuart W.

    Kentucky mai tai is a thing of beauty. Great mixologist on staff.

    Try the Wagyu Beef With Aerated Bone Marrow And Poached Egg Sous Vide - Ohh Emm Gee

    My happy place. If you like it here we can be friends.

    Save your money. Portion size is two bites per course

  • Robert M.

    Very disappointing first visit to this restaurant!!! Food has the makings of innovation - unfortunately overshadowed by very poor customer service

    Robert Mullen · September 21, 2011
  • Sharon H.

    Very expensive and absolutely not worth it

    Sharon Haft · September 20, 2011
  • Marco H.

    The food is good but you'll have to order a lot of it. The portions are ridiculously small.

    Marco Howell · September 15, 2011
  • Jessica Y.

    Go here for a special occasion (or any day if you're a big spender) and definitely go for the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food and service are some of the best I've ever had.

    Jessica Young · September 15, 2011
  • Tina N.

    Everything was delicious and wonderfully presented. Great atmosphere, great service, great experience.

  • The Feast

    Since dropping his last name, Graham Elliot is now one with his eponymous restaurant. Elliot throws rules out the window, leaning towards playful food like truffled popcorn and sweetbread empanadas.

    The Feast · June 9, 2011
  • Aaron M.

    The foie-ly pops may not be on the physical menu but they'll still make it for you if you ask.

    Aaron M. · May 17, 2011
  • ShoeHefner

    Love the complimentary truffle popcorn...

    Don't miss the foie-ly pops, foie gras rolled in pop rocks all on a stick. This is haute cuisine that looks like junk food. -- Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods Read more

    Perfection. Every time.

    Frank Lizzadro · March 2, 2011

    Go with a group to enjoy the 10-course feast. The food was beyond compare, and the service was impeccable.

  • Bullfrog & Baum

    Graham Elliot's bistronomic restaurant has a contemporary american cuisine influenced menu. The butternut bisque has toasted coconut and pumpkin seeds that make each better than the last.

  • Laura P. R.

    Chrisas Ale Manhattan made by Alex (Alecs?) is incredible!

    Laura P. Ramirez · December 31, 2010
  • GourmetLive

    It’s hard to notice the casual subtleties, like waiters in Converse or the comfortable décor, when there’s a root beer–glazed pork chop topped with corn nuts and watermelon sitting in front of you.

  • Dion H.

    Try the Foielipop

    Dion Hinchcliffe · November 17, 2010
  • P. Griffin B.

    The ice cream they use for the indoor s'mores is incredible. It tastes like a campfire. I can't think of any other explanation than that. It's a smoky marshmallow taste that compliments perfectly.

    P. Griffin Baron · October 20, 2010
  • Jessica P.

    Try not to fight over the truffle popcorn - it's hard!

    Jessica Perry · August 31, 2010
  • Epicurious

    This eponymous restaurant from a rising culinary star does not disappoint. Its small-plate offerings, like a gigantic buffalo chicken wing with Budweiser foam, are a joyous, delicious laugh.

    Epicurious · August 23, 2010
  • ShopTRACY B.

    amazing cocktails - a must!

    Great food. Smoke monster cocktail + they play album sides. Win. Win. Win. @FIJIhunt

    Leyla Arsan · July 24, 2010
  • Joshua H.

    $$$$ But good. Ask for the Foie gras lollipop with poprocks coating. Trust me, it's good.

    Joshua Hernandez · July 4, 2010
  • Alexandra I.

    Arguably one of the best-rest of Chicago...truffled popcorn and perfectly prepared lamb, nom.

    Sure to win over the table, the scallops here are glazed with maple syrup and seared, then served with oatmeal and whipped butternut squash. Read more

    Amazing food (scallops and tuna tartare). Service was great and the music selection was amazing.

    Do The Experience tasting menu. So amazing, but takes a long time for ten courses.

    Have Michael Simon tell you all about the pairings. Very entertaining and not pretentious.

    Ben Foster · April 4, 2010

    if the Foielipops with poprocks aren't on the menu, see if the kitchen can make them for you!

    Claudine Co · September 12, 2009

    eat here.
