    Took 30 minutes to be greeted after being seated. Found a black hair in the cup of rice. Food tasted good but had no appetite after finding hair in our food. They turned off the music at 9 so it had an awkward silence the last hour of our dinner. Very interesting night, will not be returning.

    Food was excellent but service was slow. They have a 5 course pre-fix menu. We had to wait for over 40 minutes for dessert and check.

    The owner/hostess gave each table the same long explanation of the 'food as medicine' concept. It got to be annoying after you heard it repeated verbatim so many times....like a script. The food was very good. We chose the $65 five-course menu, then received our bill for $85, which she explained included tip and tax. I do not appreciate having the restaurant decide what my tip will be. We had no choice in the matter at all. Will not recommend to others.

    Food is truly excellent. Wonderful flavor and display. The experience is a bit bizarre. Dishes are introduced by “top 100 soups in Chicago” rather than explaining what the ingredients are. Just sort of ruined the intimacy and made it feel campy. We were also asked to arrive 15 before our reservation for better service and then weren’t seen for 10 minutes after we arrived. There was a big party in the back room, so I think they were trying to get our order in before theirs.

    Food and service from the chef herself was excellent. The place is cozy. It's BYOB and only prix fixe, they don't have an actual menu to chose from but you can tell them your preferences, allergies, etc.

    The food is simply superb, and the ambiance is very nice. The service was at once personable and problematic--the owner and chef made sure to stop by the table several times, which was lovely. But the courses were rushed to us, and we felt pushed to eat quickly, which we did not want to do. Also, two of the party asked that their main course be moderately hot instead of hot, and the waiter seems to have forgotten that between the table and the kitchen! Nonetheless, this is a really inventive and wonderful restaurant, a joy to have in the Edgewater neighborhood.

    The owner chef presides over a somewhat strange operation. No printed menu. Water is served in plastic bottles! Your only option is a 5- course prix fixe costing $65 per person. The food is excellent and well prepared. The service is terrible and slow. You are presented with a non-itemized bill including 20% service charge. Overall impression is not favorable although there is plenty of scope for improvement.

    We’ve been several times before and loved it. This time we waited 40 minutes for anyone to come to our table. The service was incredibly slow, to the point where we skipped a course because it had already been 3.5 hours and our babysitter had to get home. We had to ask for our final course to go. They still charged us the full amount. The staff are super friendly, but they need to fix their operations as this was a poor experience for us. We were starving as we didn’t receive any food until almost 75 minutes after our initial reservation time.

    Best Thai ever! Loved the 5 course dinner, service and atmosphere. Chef Patty came to our table to explain the menu. It was so great to see her right away. I liked the atmosphere since was a special occassion, yet a warm setting. The food is off the charts, so delicious and a work of art!! A couple of notes for future guests: Restaurant is BYOB (without chillers), so white wine lovers come prepared. You will get bottled water due to COVID, it is ok. They will switch back at some point. The menu is not clear, you need to trust the chef and be ok with the price. It was $85/person including your 5 courses, BYOB corkage fee, tax & tip. It is worth every penny!

    DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT! This restaurant is a SCAM!!! - Scams people. -No menus and pushes to try their prefixed menu - Extra Charges and ridiculously high prices -Overpriced -Bad servers and lack of proper communication -I think Patty hiring international students who are not legal to work I should have known that the restaurant I picked would end up being a terrible experience. I thought I was going to eat at a high-class place, surrounded by fancy décor, with attentive staff and great food. But it was the complete opposite. It was horrible. I think this restaurant is a scam and one of the most unorganized restaurants. I am going to report this restaurant to officials.

    The quality of the experience at Herb has, unfortunately, gone down over the years. This used to feel like a hidden gem, a great secret due to the fair prices, BYOB status and high quality of food. This most recent visit lasted three hours due to lack of staff and attention and cost way more than anticipated. Our group wanted to be understanding with the staffing issues - we know this is a common issue and we were willing to be flexible. When we first sat down, we were greeted by the chef which was pretty cool, however, she didn’t give us a menu, asked if we had any allergies and then just told us we would do blind tasting. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the current prices and the biggest frustration was the $9/person corkage fee. I know prices were bound to increase due to current events, but our table was charged an extra $27 to drink our own wine and we weren’t even offered an ice bucket. The food was good but the menu has not been updated recently and the disappointing part was that one of our diners received a main entree that was way too spicy for him and another diner strongly dislikes mushrooms but was given the mushroom soup, both a result of the blind tasting we felt obligated to partake in. We barely saw any waitstaff and when they were at our table, it was never for long. Overall, the food was good but the quality of service and price increases/surprise corkage fee are reasons that we will not be returning any time in the near future.

    Truly a gem with booking. I can't believe it's taken me this long to visit this creative spot. The food is on pointe. The service is enthusiastic ... but admittedly a little slow. However, take the time to really enjoy everything this restaurant offers - from the fantastic plates to the warmth of the Chef. You will not be disappointed.

    Food was amazing. We had no idea we were signing up for a prix fixe menu. The Herb website is not clear at all. Cost was $85/person for 5 courses each. I see the website says $65/person so I think we were overcharged. This restaurant has no beverage service just bottled water. Food was AMAZING, however, I wish the website would have been more clear on pricing, that it is a bring your own beverage or alcohol restaurant. Service was also odd as they tried to pace us with the table next to us. Just not sure this is a repeat due to the setup. But it was the best Thai food we have ever had but the pricing was out of line, and to now see that we have overcharged $20/person ($80 total) that is really upsetting.
