    One of the best restaurants to go to eat. They have a variety of foods to choose from like different pastas to a nice juicy burger. The service you receive is good and they make you feel at home.

    I don't care that it's a chain owned by the Cheesecake Factory. The views of Michigan Ave are great, as are the snacks and the cocktails. Perfect place to stop for a bite on a shopping day.

    Nice place, lots of options and big portion sizes. If you want specific desserts order them with your entree because they cook them fresh (takes about 30 mins). Cocktails are very yummy too.

    Good service, excellent food and excellent quality/price ratio! Deco of the dinning room is stylish in a way! Home wine is really acceptable .

    Very affordable, huge portions, you always end up taking some home. The chicken pot pie is great and the salads are really good. The best seats are by the windows looking out on N. Michigan ave.

    This is a carbon copy of The Cheesecake Factory. If your from out of town, skip it. Eat in the bar to avoid the wait. Spinich artichoke dip, Miso salmon, & Molten chocolate cake were all delicious!

    A seat by the windows is a great people watching spot! We've seen so many brides taking their wedding photos on Michigan ave! And not to mention the pretty chirstmas lights :)

    Ordered a bacon cheeseburger & chicken pot pie- was good enough for two. The beignets were fantastic; they take awhile to make, so order w/ your main dishes. Overall nice time, not incredible though

    Always order the chocolate chip cookies as soon as you sit down to order with the intent to them take to go. They take 20 to 25 minutes to prepare. They are well worth it.

    On the negative side: Way too many options. On the plus side, everything's tasty. Similar to the cheesecake Factory.GLC, however is extremely modern, with beautiful decor & amazing views of the city.

    This place truly is the definition of excess! From the trendy N Michigan Avenue address to the grandeur of the design (don't forget the extensive menu) Definitely a must!

    It's a tourist attraction, so judge for yourself if that's a pro or a con. However! The serving staff is wonderful, the food is prepared from scratch, and the meals taste great. Kid-friendly.

    If you are visiting Chicago, ask for a Michigan Ave window seat.. There may be a wait, but you'll have a great spot! Also, their brunch menu is pretty good on a Saturday morning :)

    The beignets which come with three sauces (including a Jack Daniels vanilla cream) are light, crisp and beyond delicious.

    Lunch sized portions are insanely big! Try the pasta fresca with eggplant and basil. Oh and make sure to order dessert at least 45 minutes in advance.

    Buffalo wraps as an appetizer was great; just enough zing! Salmon is zesty and Awe Mazing! Oh,fresh mojitos to compliment this savory meal

    Seafood menu is good, awesome view overlooking michigan ave esp in the winter. Crowded, wait time 20mins. The floor was dirty, almost fell on my way to the bathroom. Valet parking $15 for 3 hrs.

    Portions huge, chicken Marsala is delish, all desserts, wonderful. All the smoothie-type drinks are good. Long, long wait on weekends. Make reservations if you can.

    Order the Pasta Telephono. Not cheap, but pretty standard for Mag Mile. Excellent service. Not a lot of choices for vegetarians. There will be a significant wait time on weekends.

    The spicy Bloody Mary is fantastic! If possible, get a table for two in the atrium by the window. It's worth the extra wait.

    Try the beignets! Not New Orleans style, as advertised, but very light and airy. Delish! And the dipping sauces made a nice complement.

    The fried pickles are great. The pasta and chicken with sun dried tomatoes are just as awesome. Now it's time for beignets

    The crab and asparagus omelette was delicious. Not heavy with cheese or sauce, so the flavors really popped. And great coffee!

    Hummus is incredible. Very large portions deserts most you have to order when you get your main course to be ready in time.

    Get there a little early before the dinner rush really kicks in, and find a seat in the bar to avoid long wait times.

    I know this is simple, but for some reason just their plain old coffee is very good. I did like the hummus however as a small appetizer for someone who prefers lunch over breakfast.

    The decor and service here are absolutely outstanding while your bill is actually reasonable. Ask for a seat near the window.
