We frequently dine at Mad Social and its always enjoyable. The only reason we didn’t 5 Star it is because if it’s busy then it’s not only difficult to get into the door but it’s just too crowded.

On our way to take our daughter to camp at the University of Notre Dame, we stopped in Chicago. Since it was Father’s Day we looked for recommendations for the best brunch and we found MAD Social. We made a reservation and headed there. As soon as we arrived the service was friendly and welcoming, and the servers looked like a close knit group of friends. We tried the SHORT RIB BENEDICT
(braised Korean style short ribs, toasted pretzel buns, brussels sprouts kimchi, togarashi hollandaise, house potatoes). If you like eggs benedict you will love these! We also ordered pancakes, which were amazing. If you are in Chicago this is a keeper.

We had supper here while we were in town for a local conference and it was wonderful!!! Everything we ordered was fantastic and our server was fabulous. Highly recommend the chicken and waffles - best I've ever had! Would definitely come back next time we visit Chicago.

Small but mighty menu! Many items for sharing, helpful recommendations from wait staff. Brussel Sprouts were awesome, and MAD Burger was perfect! Music is loud and 'electronica', pretty annoying!

My hairdresser recommended this restaurant today when I told her we were going to a concert at the UC. She actually made the reservation for us. I have to say my husband and I loved it!! The food was amazing as well as the service. I can’t wait to go back!!

Our server, Keegan was not good. We were there for 2 hours - he never refilled our water. He gave me the wrong drink on my second order (I ordered the same drink as my first drink). We asked for separate checks (there were 2 of us) and he said "ok so you just want me to split the check down the middle?" Plus, he couldn't remember what we each ordered. He didn't seem to have a clue what was going on! Due to the poor service, I will not go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I love this place, but was disappointed that the air was not correctly wasn't informed of this before we sat down. Sunday was one of the hottest day's we had, so it was miserable. Overall the food is great and they have great customer service, just the air was a downer, especially since we weren't informed until I said something, once I asked for the check.

Overall, a great experience. The food was solid and well presented. The portion sizes could have been a bit larger. The service was good, but the waitress did forget a cocktail order and the water for the table. She got it to us on the next ask. So overall a good experience

Food and service was good. However, the booth we were seated at was not appropriate for a party of 5. We were very crowded and uncomfortable which ruined the dining experience. One of my friends ended up standing up and leaning over the side of the table once the food came because there wasn’t enough room.

We met up for brunch sadly just at the tail end of the bottomless mimosas, but we ended up doing bottles and had a great meal after all. Would like to try again with the brunch special or possibly for dinner. Great location, street parking was available. All the servers were wearing chambray and had similar haircuts, but overall a great experience. Didn’t feel rushed at all!

One of my favorite spots, but really disappointed by the service this time around. I ordered short rib benedict, and eggs were boiled hard - compounded by small amount of sauce - dish was super dry. I pointed it out to the waitress, she thanked me but did not offer to replace or resolve in any way.

Service was sub par and food was not memorable and overpriced for what you get. The octopus was my favorite dish and would be the only that I’d recommend.
