The Zagat Review
A creative New American menu highlights interesting meats and seafood (lamb sweetbreads, skate schnitzel, tandoori octopus) at this River North entry. Oak and char figure prominently in the lodge-like setting, with puffy ruched light fixtures adding a feminine element, plus mohair- and leather-upholstered seating, and bar with TVs and handy recharging outlets.

I was so excited with the decor when I walked in. But expectations dropped immediately after getting the good. Food wasn't even average, I could cook something better at home. We tried multiple plates and they were so mediocre that at points I didn't even know what I was eating. Small portions. Mediocre. Service was great and I hope they get their food better as the staff was awesome. Too bad.

Excellent shareable plates for small groups. Because everything is very creative, we simply asked the manager for the "best hits", and we were very pleased. We especially liked the MSG chicken, great flavor and texture.

Amazing place, especially for happy hour. Really elegant and fancy feel, while not a pretentious crowd. The wings and burgers are impressive, I have yet to venture past then to the real courses. Huge screen behind a mirror on game days.
