The staff at Oriole made our 18 yr anniversary so memorable with their amazing food, service, and thoughtfulness. Oriole is in the top 5 meals I have ever had in my life. It’s worth every penny for their set menu and they call you ahead of time to make sure they account for anything you dislike so you don’t have to worry about it. More

Aba met all expectations and was a fabulous treat! The wait staff was wonderful. Our waiter, Zach, was so nice and polite and helpful. He explained the various selections. Best to have small plates and share...which we did. Everything was excellent! This is the best Greek food I have ever enjoyed ...and I have tried many places! The rooftop setting is a must! It was a lovely evening in Chicago and this was extra special. The drinks were good too! Definitely, Aba is a keeper and a must see if you are ever Chicago. It is located in the Fulton Market district..a vibrant and "happening" scene. I high recommend Aba! More

Global, International | West Loop, Chicago

Recently visited Proxi for the second time in the last 3 months and had another fantastic experience. Every dish we tried was meticulously executed, and the attention to detail, both in concept and in practice, was exemplary. The smoked pumpkin and burrata were delicious, as they were previously; the grilled sweet potato was wonderful, too, and the shaved zucchini dish one of the nicest I've eaten in recent memory. The desserts, as always, were par excellence (the flan + the tres leches cake particularly so). Their only downside is that they set the standard impossibly high for dessert at other restaurants. (Not the worst thing in the world). Service and ambience were lovely, too. More

This was the second time we have dined there coming in from Carmel, Indiana. The service is stellar. The drinks are original and delicious. We had the Sourdough Ciabatta for starters. The bread is toasted and there is beef jus and tomatoes jam to dunk in and put on your slices of ciabatta. The candle sitting in the jus is editable. For dinner we ate Pan Seared Walleye with risotto, English peas and bacon. We also had Oven Roasted Chicken with truffle jus, fregola sarda, cappers, almonds and ricotta salata. We added a side of crispy red potatoes. OMG the food was soooo good. And for dessert we had S’mores. It is a brown butter cake, marshmallow, smoked milk chocolate ganache, and it is made in a Masson jar. When the lid is opened the smell of a wonderful campfire spills out. It tastes wonderful. Is your mouth watering? More

Discover West Loop

While once primarily an industrial district lined with warehouses, the Chicago West Loop has experienced a major transformation in recent years. Home to "Restaurant Row" and easily accessible using public transit, this neighborhood is now one of the trendiest (and tastiest) neighborhoods in Chicago. You can experience a variety of dining experiences along "Restaurant Row" from a burger and beer at a pub or upscale diner to a number of fine dining options. This stretch also includes sushi, tapas, sports bars, coffee shops and cocktail lounges. You really can have it all here. For dessert, you can always stop by a French or Greek bakery to pick up a fresh pastry, or head to one of the local donut shops.
