Some call it a bar with great food, others a great restaurant with plenty of bar seating. Some say its a place for beautiful people, others say its kinda loud. But they all say the food is outstanding, the service great, and the overall experience ONCE you have been seated. Try for a weekday lunch coz weekends can be a... More

Enjoyed a dinner for three there, and loved the Hanger Steak, which is a steak lover's cut if you like your beef. We had a young diner with us who has an interest in cooking, and they generously gave him a quick tour of the kitchen. This unpretentious place is accessible for just about anyone. They offer imaginative food done... More

This is one of my favorites in chicago! Always fresh seasonal ingredients and the best kept staples like the sausage wrapped in dates. Awesome wine selection. Fun communal or bar seating. Best foccasia bread. Must get this!! Always surprised at the combinations and how much I enjoy them and would never think to pair certain foods that turn out so... More

So I'm torn with this place. As a tapas style restaurant it's better to have more people in your party to share and try more dishes. The only downfall of this is that the place is small and hard to get a spot for larger parties better as a group of 2. That out of the way. The food here... More

Very good surprise. An innovative and Mediterranean fusion kitchen with a warmly and attentive service. We follow the recommendation of the Wallpaper City guide. Nice atmosphere just a little bit noisy but it was Sunday at brunch. And last but not least, super good natural wine from Europe and USA. Coup de cœur !

I visited avec restaurant in January 2017. I really like the interior design, the wood makes me warm and cozy. The food is great, and I love the idea to share the table with other guests.

The food at Avec was good. The portions were for the Large Plates were adequate and the Small Plates were what one would expect. Be warned: This is all about food sharing. The dishes you order all come out at separate times in no apparent logical order. I could live with that. But the atmosphere is terrible. The place is... More

We came here for Valentines Day and were very impressed. A small space that does a lot with it. We began our meal with the oysters....fresh & tasty! Next we tried the brandade (salt cod & olive oil), again very tasty. Then it on to sea urchin bruschetta that we found to be the highlight of our meal. And then... More
