The Zagat Review
With its "romantic" , "European" -inspired setting, complete with chandeliers and a fireplace, this "beautiful" West Loop champagne specialist "hidden" behind sibling restaurant Nellcôte is "great for date night" or just when you want to "feel luxurious" ; its "extensive" bubbly list is paired with French bistro fare and raw-bar options, and summer brings a "gorgeous" patio.

My boyfriend and I decided to go to this restaurant because it was listed as one of the most romantic restaurants in Chicago. We made a reservation and we’re a bit late so I think they gave our table away. We ended up waiting 30 minutes for a table. The hostesses were very kind though and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne for the wait. My main concern is that this is dubbed one of the most romantic restaurants in Chicago and its just not. I felt that the pictures online were not an accurate portrayal of what the restaurant looks like. It was very dark inside, and on top of that the music was so loud we could barely talk. It almost feels a bit like a night club because they have the bass turned up. The restaurant is also quite small (and popular) which made it very crowded. There was no where to wait except the bar area, but that area had tables in it as well so you end up being uncomfortably close to couples trying to enjoy their meal. Overall the experience was fine and the food was good. I just wouldn’t recommend it if you’re looking for a romantic date spot.

Visited this place with clients. Very dark inside (not an understatement, I thought I was wearing sunglasses at first) but this does make quite a nice atmosphere. You think it's more of a champagne "bar" from the description and website, but it's more of a restaurant inside. Also, being European, I was astonished at how expensive the champagne was! It's not cheap in the UK, but this felt particularly expensive!

Sat at a bar area table on a Tuesday night in the winter. Interesting, intimate atmosphere. Great selections of bubbles and other drinks. Food was excellent and prompt. Service in the bar area is a little inconsistent and chaotic. You'll need to advocate for yourself and flag down the bartenders. I can't speak for the seated area.
