    My partner and I spent date night here this past Saturday night. We shared three appetizers, oysters, crab cakes and the French onion soup. Oysters will forever be my favorite but those crab cakes are a close second! So much crab meat!!! For our main course I had the seared scallops and he had the salmon. The scallops are always cooked perfectly but that salmon skin was the crispiest most delicious I’ve ever had. My partner also had the patatas bravas with his salmon and those we also exceptional! After dinner we headed upstairs to Aire for drinks and dessert and were not disappointed! We had the flourless chocolate cake and highly recommend it! Will be back for sure!!!

    I went with my niece for happy hour. The drink selection and cost per drink was extensive and very reasonable. The appetizers were also varied and the sliders and fries we had were delicious. We then split the seafood salad which contained large amounts of varied, tasty seafood. It was an excellent experience!

    Wonderful food! Nice ambiance. The location is good. The bathroom is a bit far and they were out of some desserts, but a great dinner spot overall.

    Went on a Sun at 5 prior to show. Not crowded at all. Waiter was very helpful. Food came within reasonable time, and was very good. Would recommend, especially since most other nearby Loop restaurants are closed on Sunday.

    Bandol was a weird experience. We went for dinner just prior to a Broadway in Chicago show down the street on a Saturday night, and the place was almost empty. There was a guy moping up the floor, and we weren't even sure it was open. But we sat down, and saw the staff all wearing ugly T-Shirts promoting a roof top bar that had nothing to do with the restaurant. The kitchen really messed up an order, saying that they made a chicken dish atop the salmon we ordered....bizarre! The atmosphere was fine, the food was actually good, but if this restaurant is going to survive it can't be empty on a Saturday night!

    We tried Bandol for brunch this morning and walked out after a 30 minute wait for a sweet starter that never arrived. We never saw our mains, either, or even a hint that our meal was on its way. We were greeted and seated promptly, with coffees brought out in a timely manner. Things fell apart after that, likely a kitchen issue as others seemed to be waiting for food too. After bringing our coffees, our server never checked in with us again and only noticed us as we gave her cash for the coffees. Very disappointing…

    The food was not good, overcooked eggs and unappetizing soggy bacon. I would not recommend or go back. The service was fine.

    Really terrible, they never served us. There are so many options in Chicago, try something else.
