    Food was cold. Service was nonexistent. Overpriced. Going to Portillos.

    (Especially) If you're Indian, don't come here. The portions are incredibly small for the price, and the food tastes sweet, bland and unseasoned.

    Don't waste your time here.

    Any of the 10 dish menus are great. They give you a wonderful tour of the types of foods they serve here.

    Lentil soup is spicy and amazing! Gobi and eggplant combo entree was disappointing. Lukewarm and not half amazing as I had hoped. :-(.

    Overrated. The portions left something to be desired. I got the tilapia and was shocked at how small and flat it was. For the price this place is not worth it. However, the flan was superb.

    The Brazilian seafood stew was amazing

    The food was good but the service was so slow. We waited for 25 mins just to receive our food and when we did I had to send my plate back. Also the drinks are small and pricey.

    Decent food, but missing a certain je ne sais quoi to bring it to that true gourmet level. Fine dining prices without an attention to detail. Think Ikea does upscale. Scallops are amazing however.

    Love the pani puri margarita

    ISC Chicago · May 16, 2012
  • Ashwin P.

    Lamb shank gassi, Frankie wraps and Shahi Tukra

    Ashwin Prashanth · April 23, 2012
  • Kay L.

    The flavors are terrific. Try the artichoke pakoras. Or the juhu ki pani puri is fun, with the mint water that you pour into the shell.

    Don't miss the lamb chop appetizer and the spicy cocktails.

    Food is overpriced and drinks are way too expensive!

    Amazing restaurant. Service was impeccable. Blue corn hearts of palm were my fav. Pear and chili cocktail was to die for. Def come here!!

    Meghan Martineau · January 15, 2012
  • Gilt City

    This is an upscale restaurant where you won’t find truffle oil or coconut foam—the down-to-earth kitchen eschews molecular gastronomy for more traditional uses of bold Indian and Latin spices.

    I was going to say how awesome the ribs are but now we are killing the goat cheesecake. Truely delicious meal. Don't pass Vermillion by!

    The drinks are so different, and DELICIOUS! The food is the best I have ever had, no question. So interesting, I highly recommend it. Worth every penny.

    Try the Iron Chef menu, a little $$ but so worth it!

    Shahi Tukra dessert is phenomenal!

    Stephanie T · January 31, 2011

    Vermillion has two menus, 1 meat and 1 veggie. Worth the visit and the fusion of flavors works. Amazing. try the punjabi chloe from the street fair side of menu.

    Menu faves: Tapas - artichoke pakoras; Main - lobster portuguese; dessert - shahi tukra. All out of this world. Waiter Michael C was the perfect menu tour guide.
