"One of the best restaurants in the city. The bread/butter served is very good. They have a nice wine selection. We each had a steak ~ the 22 oz Bone In Ribeye & the 8 oz Filet ~ both were flavorful & delicious but the ribeye was exceptional! The sides are big enough to share. Save room for dessert ~ the Creme Brulee & lighted Bananas Foster were wonderful. Our server Mitch was attentive & informative but not intrusive. In fact the entire staff was great. We are looking forward to our next dinner at Eddie V's."

You’ve never tasted Italian food like this before. Pasta made by hand every morning; fruits and vegetables sourced from a local farmer - just for us; fresh fish flown in daily and our meats aged to mouth-watering perfection. We have taken old school Italian and added a modern twist.

"We always enjoy Osteria Ottimo. The herbed butter & crusty bread are delicious. We each had a chicken dish for dinner which we both enjoyed - Chicken Vesuvio & Chicken Parmesan. The portion sizes of both meals were generous enough that we had leftovers to take home. The wine selection was good & the service was great."

The tradition of Tuscany lives on with the comfortable trattoria featuring mouth-watering Northern Italian specialties. Homemade pastas, gourmet pizzas baked in a wood-burning oven & tender veal grilled to perfection are just a few of the Tuscan favorites awaiting you. An incredible wine selection complimented by exceptional service creates the ultimate dining experience. Across from Oakbrook Shopping Center, Tuscany is the perfect break in your shopping or a wonderful meal after work.

"The entire dining experience was flawless. The bread basket was warm & delicious. The chilled spinning bowl salad & presentation was great. We had the prime rib/lobster served with mashed potatoes/gravy along with a side of mushrooms which all tasted great. I especially enjoyed the Yorkshire pudding. The desserts were rich & good. The building is elegant, the food is perfect & the service was old school fantastic. We are looking forward to returning & bringing the family."

Step back in time when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

"We have been here many times & we always enjoy Dancing Marlin although it is a little pricey. The food is fresh & delicious and the service is good while the wine on tape is wonderful. We went with a group so we had the New York Strip (Market Price ~ rather expensive but a great piece of meat), a cheese plate, Sloppy Joseph's, Crab Rangoon, Ahi Tuna Taco's, two types of flat bread pizzas. We look forward to our next visit."

Experience Tuscan cuisine at vibrant and lively Coco Pazzo Café, sister restaurant of the more formal Coco Pazzo. Just steps away from Magnificent Mile shopping, Northwestern Hospital, Prentice Hospital and the Rehabilitation Institute, the Café offers a casual atmosphere with a sophisticated menu and multiple wines by the glass. Enjoy the warmth of the Modigliani inspired murals, theatrical flower arrangements and the copper topped bar which is available for dining. And, when the weather allows, choose a seat on the comfortable patio. Coco Pazzo Café has been voted by Chicago Zagat readers as one of the finest alfresco restaurants in town

"Four of us went for dinner. We arrived early so we had a seat in the bar & ordered a bottle of wine. Delicious Italian wines are by the glass or bottle. We were seated a the table & served a bread basket with two kinds of bread. Each of us had a salad then an entree. We all enjoyed our meals (salmon, lazagna. rizzotto). For dessert we had coffee & split a wonderful pastaccio semifreddo. The service, food, drink & dessert were all perfect! We will return again."

The newest Mercadito locations are the chicest and most modern additions to the restaurant family. Ample sized banquets accommodate large parties while smaller white quartzite tables and the soft wood floor and ceiling keep the atmosphere cozy. Exquisite details include rope screens separating banquettes, handmade pyramid-shaped copper lights illuminating the bar, and unique graffiti-style murals dressing the dining rooms. A massive bar area and lounge lets guests relax while taking in the stylish and upscale environment.

"Flaming drinks & small plates for sharing. Tables are extremely close to each other, table space not enough for sharing plates & rather loud. The food & service were very good though."

HUB 51 is the River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago's social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.
