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 waited for outside seating but experienced very cold service . Customer service is not good.
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.
Delicious food and cocktails. Must try the churro waffle and chicken!
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!
The good was great! We loved the small plates to share and try a variety. Enjoyed our dinner!
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!!
The food was amazing! Best French toast I’ve ever had!
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.
Enjoyed a date night sitting at the bar. Good food and cocktails
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
The food was outstanding, with perfect portion sizes and cocktails that were well balanced. The server was friendly and just the right amount of attentive.
Everything was great , we felt a disconnect with our server.
Have been at Mad several times and this was the first time we were disappointed in our service.
It was fantastic for brunch. Great food and good time.
We had a fun time and enjoyed our food and drinks. Looking forward to trying more next time!
Great food, slightly smaller portions. Not too many vegetarian options.
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.
Amazing margaritas! Nice ambiance and service was great!
Good for brunch.
Cool vibe. Impressive bar with all marble top. Felt a lot more hipster than the typical sports bar scene in the west loop. I will go back.
Place is wondeful. Food and drinks were delicious. Food was well balanced and rich in different flavors. The staff was absolutely lovely .
Love the food hear, think the music choice could be better :)
Chicken and waffles are the BEST! Great staff as well
MAD Social is a welcomed addition to the far West Loop. We enjoyed the MAD poutine and the chicken lollipops. Good cocktails too!
Too pricey... their burger is more expensive than Loyalist and Au Cheval. I would never go back.
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!
Amazing evening with charming atmosphere, great service and divine food!
Great spot in West Loop, especially Thursday happy hour with 50% off wine bottles and cheese boards. Delicious appetizers. Highly recommend.
Service is always great at this place and menu items delicious.
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.
Awesome food...shareable plates...great neighborhood...eclectic crowd...and fantastic service by our server, Jessica! Top notch!
Planned a friend get-together after eating at Mad Social a few weeks back. The staff is super friendly and the bar is a great neighborhood hangout. A very cool place to be social with great people watching. Love the location of this place as well. Highly recommend it.
SSW this restaurant on Good oaraidise and had to try it for myself. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly...it was an overall wonderful experience!
Delicious and close to United Center. Cozy and fun.
Our second visit, and once again, everything was delicious. The burger was over the top! Service was great too.
Everything was very good and our server Areial was great and had wonderful recommendations
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.
