Seven Lions is a modern interpretation of the classic clubhouse restaurant. Whether the occasion calls for getting together over a beer and a burger, negotiating over a power lunch, snacking after sightseeing or celebrating a special night out, Seven Lions offers the perfect ambiance, social energy and everyday fare for a variety of dining experiences. Seven Lions features a menu of both clubhouse cuisine and cocktails with a contemporary twist and an approachable wine list with uniquely grown American varietals. The 12,000 square foot restaurant houses a grand central bar, a separate dining room with an outdoor patio and three private event spaces. The restaurant provides brunch, lunch, dinner, and bar service to this iconic stretch of Chicago.

"Seven Lions is a beautiful & elegant restaurant in a perfect location (across from the Art Institute & Millennium Park). Several of us went for lunch. We started with a cocktail ~ the mixed drink Mr. Pink was delicious. We ordered the Lobster Cobb & the Burger/Salad. All of us throughly enjoyed our meals. For dessert we shared the Lemon Dessert & the Bread Pudding ~ they were both so good. Our server Amber was attentive without being obtrusive. We are looking forward to returning in the near future."

Located South of 159th on LaGrange Road in Orland Park, Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery has become the destination for award winning, handcrafted beers, quality American cuisine and friendly energetic service. Rock Bottom is the perfect place if you are looking to watch the big game in our large bar area, have dinner with friends in our dining room or enjoy a beautiful evening on one of our two patios.

"Consistently good food, beer, wine & service. We ordered a wedge salad (a little small this time), the crab & artichoke dip appetizer which is delicious & we like their fish/chips with apple coleslaw. They have a nice beer & wine selection and always good attentive service."

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.

"We tried the Restaurant Week Menu which was a nice selection of food ~ Beet Salad, Gnocchi, Scallops or Pork Loin & Panna Cotta for dessert. All of the food was delicious & presentation was fantastic. The Gnocchi was exceptional. There were some nice choices of wine & beer. The service was good but a little slow getting the second glass of wine after the restaurant filled up. We will return to try more items from the menu."

"Our server for dinner tonight was Kyle who was fantastic. We were both completely happy with our meals ~ Wedge Salads, Filet Mignon for me & Ribeye for my husband (very flavorful & cooked perfectly), Double Baked Potato, Truffle Macaroni & Cheese, Chocolate Pie & Creme Brûlée. Wonderful crusty bread is served & they have an extensive wine list. This is now our favorite restaurant & we are looking forward to returning soon."

Farmhouse is a Midwestern Craft Tavern focused on delivering warm hospitality, great beer and wonderful food in a comfortable neighborhood setting in the heart of River North. Focused on the Midwest, Farmhouse offers 28 beers on draft, 24 from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan. We feature local artisanal liquors and a cocktail program created by Adam Seger. <br /><br />The menu ingredients are harvested from local farmers and change with the Midwestern seasons. Farmhouse offers locally sourced, pastured raised burgers, cuts their our own fries and makes almost everything from scratch on premise. We are a green tavern. 85% of the building materials, furniture and fixtures were salvaged from an abandoned factory on the South Side. <br /><br />Much of the seating at Farmhouse consists of community tables, seating between eight and ten guests, encouraging a convivial atmosphere. Please be aware that smaller parties are often seated at community tables. <br />

"Great craft beer (which changes often), nice wine selection & delicious food. Our server Lauren B. was very good & Andrew D. was great helping with beer selections. We started with the cheese curds which were the best we have ever had! We ordered the short rib & the pork loin which were both delicious. For dessert we had the rice pudding & the budino. We have been here several times and we have always enjoyed our food & drink. We will be bringing friends here soon."

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.

"The food & drinks were good ~ the service not so good. Very slow. We asked for a restaurant week menu & it took so long to get it that we finally just looked it up on line. We had to ask for our appetizer after waiting a very long time ~ we did not want it to come with our meal. Then we had to ask three times for our boxed up dessert to go. Lunch dragged out way too long for no reason. Although the food was good, I don't think we will go back again."

"Three of us went for dinner. We all had the Lettuce Wedge with Blue Cheese, Bacon & tomatoes (beautiful presentation). For our entree we all had the Filet Mignon with a Double Baked Potato. The steaks were flavorful & cooked to perfection. The potatoes were good as well. The desserts & coffee are delicious ~ we tried the Turtle Sundae & Chocolate Cake. The service was very good too."

"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."
