The Savoy brings a globally inspired seafood concept to Wicker Park in a cozy yet chic nautical themed space. The menu ranges from raw bar items such as East and West coast oysters to Alaskan snow crab. Coconut red curry mussels and a crab cake with smoked jalapeno sour cream serve as exotic beginnings. A variety of inventive fish dishes await you as entrees. Pork belly, Berkshire pork chop and a bone-in ribeye are offerings from the prairie. The Savoy also offers an unparalleled beverage program that ranges from a vintage cocktail list inspired by pre-prohibition era cocktails as well as modern selections, an eclectic wine and beer list and a wealth of alluring absinthe and spirits. The space itself is built for destination place guests. The restaurant opens into a wood laden raw bar then eases into a main dining space that gives way to a bar that glows with the warmth of soft Edison lighting. And if that's not enough, a low lit lounge awaits you in the darker recesses of The Savoy.

"I was surprised by the online reviews on Yelp and elsewhere as well as the fancy website. Unfortunately the food was a major disappointment for the prices they charge. We ordered several appetizers, fish and chicken dishes. My fish (black cod), was barely 3 ounces, tasteless, and was put on top of some noodles floating on watery cream sauce. It killed my appetite. The full size of salad of kale, cauliflower BURRATA & CRISPY VEGETABLES, was awful with no taste whatsoever served in a small appetizer plate. My friend's chicken dish ROASTED POUSSIN was so overcooked that it wasn't roasted anymore. I do not recommend this restaurant. Overrated and bad food!"
