I've eaten at Vie a few times, and Perennial Virant didn't pale in comparison. Had dinner here on a very busy Saturday night, but we had no problems whatsoever with having our table ready or the service, which was excellent. With the exception of my...More

It was easily the best meal I had in Chicago and I didn't have a single bad thing. We were there for the Second City Prix Fixee and the choices were abundant and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful meal at Perennial where the specialty is in-house preserves and pickled everything. That may not immediately sound enticing, but the combination of perfectly-prepared seafood (in our case) with a variety of surprising, delicious veggies and fruits was a great taste adventure....More

There are no words only analogies that can describe our dining experience. Your first O, your first kiss, your wedding night, the birth of a child, or your first successful marathon. The service is great, the food is so unique it cannot be described. I...More

We had wonderful meals here, in an upscale atmosphere that was elegant but not stuffy. No one in our party of 7 was disappointed! The wait staff was very attentive without hovering; the menu accommodated both vegetarian and gluten free needs. Every dish was delightfully...More
