Re: “Ann Sather

I have no idea why people say such good things about this place. From the dirty coffee cup to the canned vegetables in the omelet to the sloppy service, there is no reason to return here. And those cinnamon buns are ridiculous! Never again!!!

I can't say enough good things about this place. It is far better than any other sushi I've had in Chicago. The chef is very creative with both ingredients and presentation. While it seemed at first that the tables were too close together, we were glad to be able to see what everyone else was eating! Quite a show! The waiter was very knowledgable and helpful. When I was there they didn't have a liquor liscense yet, but they might by now. Can't wait to return!

Re: “Tweet Let's Eat

the food was wonderful and I will definitely return for that reason, but more than that was the truly great attention by the owner/maitre d'. Our reservation was for a different evening than the night we arrived. Instead of blaming me for being there on the wrong night, she was very apologetic, bought us a drink next door at the bar, and made sure to get us a table as soon as she could. She apologized three more times before we left. She took total responsibility, even though it might not have been her fault. This kind of treatment is very rare and most appreciated! How refreshing to have an owner actually care about their patrons! All this while the restaurant was packed with people due to the fact that they had just received a terrific review in the Tribune. I'll certainly be a return customer.

Re: “Bad Dog Tavern

This place is better than your average neighborhood bar. The selection of food was quite good and the prices were reasonable. I really appreciate that! It's a new place but didn't seem to have any crimps that needed to be worked out. There is also a nice outdoor area that I look forward to frequenting next summer.

Re: “Santorini

This restaurant is very consistant. I have been here many times and have never been anything but very pleased.
