312 Chicago proudly supports the Green City Market and local farms dedicated to community-based sustainable agriculture, organic farming and naturally raised livestock. Our chefs serve contemporary and traditional Italian dishes using seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Our extensive wine collection, featuring more than 200 American and Italian wines, is displayed throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms. At the bar, enjoy superb spirits and wines by the glass representing a duality of American and Italian varietals.<br /><br />312 Chicago is centrally located the Loop Theater and Financial District. Every room offers iconic city views including City Hall, the Thompson Center, the Board of Trade and the Cadillac Palace Theater. The ambiance evokes the comfort and sophistication of a 1930’s supper club, but the style is pure, modern elegance with rich walnut wood and dramatic chandeliers.

"I had not been to 312 for some time and thought I'd try it again, but unfortunately it was at best good...not great. We had to send one meal back once, and should have sent it back a second time, but could not get our waitresses attention. She stopped by the table once to say "everything is good, right?" ... and then left before we coudl even respond. We had also told her we were going to the theater, but she did not manage the timing properly and we were barely able to finish our meal before we had to race off before the curtain went up. There are many other choices in the theater district...thank goodness."

"Great place in the burbs! Really loved the variety of foods, the tapas style and the fact that you weren't rushed and could enjoy your evening. Definitely would recommend and definitely will go back."

"Hard to say what was better...the food or the service. Both were excellent, but our server was the best we have ever had at a public restaurant - she made us feel like we were at a private club! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAUANT!!"

FIG & OLIVE extends an olive branch to Chicago with its flagship city location, situated on Oak Street in the premier Gold Coast luxury retail shopping district. Laurent Halasz, the founder of FIG & OLIVE, envisioned an urban space embodying his origins from the South of France, and the 10,000 square foot dining destination features a variety of unique spaces that capture this essence of the French Riviera. With natural limestone and white stucco walls surrounding an open-exhibition kitchen, an expansive lounge and bar, a crostini station, and an open-air garden terrace, this location is perfect for an informal or elegant gathering.

"This restaurant came highly recommended, but fell short of all of our expectations. We had a reservation, yet we were seated in a table right across from the kitchen...a very heavy traffic area for servers and arriving customers. We waited 10 minutes before anyone waited on us, and only after I asked someone to please locate our server. The food was good, except for my white fish that was not cooked thoroughly and I had to send it back. The additional cooking worked, but really took away from the dish. So, needless-to-say we were disappointed with our visit to this restaurant....which by the way is not inexpensive!"
