Closed as of 2018-05-23; there's a hand-written sign in the window that says "Closed for 2 weeks". Hopefully they use this as an opportunity to reset a number of things. Went there for lunch, and the service was very slow. The runners seemed confused; at the table next to us, two people ordered food and were eating it, and runners were bringing them more food. It was obviously for another table but they kept looking at the ticket in disbelief. The lunch special was "Fish and Chips"; even though we arrived at 11:15, at around 12:20 (yes, have I mentioned that service is very slow, and the restaurant wasn't even that full yet) the server comes by to say that they're out of fish and chips. Um, ok. So I order a fish sandwich. 20m later the server comes out again, and says that they're out of fish! So, I end up with a chicken sandwich at a fish restaurant.

I had been here for lunch once and it was very nice. I was so excited to come for dinner with my husband. The menu is limited, which is fine because we could still find some nice options. It took quite some time for our server to come to us after we were seated and from our experience with our server at our table and the bartenders for an after dinner coffee, we found them all to seem quite rude. Not directly but lots of indirect, subtle things. We over heard them mocking a question we asked and basic customer service qualities were lacking across the board. The guy filling our waters grabbed the glasses at our table and others by the rim, where everyone puts their mouth, sure to spread whatever lovely bugs are floating around. Food was good!

What a surprise! Picked this randomly based on reviews and location, and it turned out to be awesome! Food was delicious (we ordered off the Prix fixe) and the service was truly outstanding. All the staff showed attention to detail and really made the experience memorable. Also, nice views of the Chicago River from the back of the restaurant. Will definitely be on my list of places when I'm in the loop next.
