Went on Saturday evening with my wife and our daughter's mother-in-law. Drew was there to welcome us. Knew right away this was going to be a great experience. Service was excellent without being hovering or too personal. Menu is creative, with everything from fancy appetizers to imaginative sandwiches to wonderful dinner entrees. Great ambience that manages to be elegant but... More

We visited Drew's on Saturday night during the big Cubs game when they won the spot into the World Series. So it was a rather raucous, fun crowd with much cheering any time a run was scored! Despite the revelry, the restaurant had a very elegant, reserved feel to it. The food was excellent - shrimp & scallop cerviche was... More

Drew's is one of those restaurants that you finally go to and wonder why you hadn't gone before. You find out how awesome it is the minute you walk inside. Initially my family came here because they had a great deal for parking during the NLCS at Wrigley. For $5 we parked until the game was over. Well, that wasn't... More

From the outside Drew's may not look like much. However that food was fabulous. My husband had the Diver Scallops. I had the Devilesque Linguini (featuring fresh fish, shrimp, scallops and Calamari), and our teenager he the Duck Confit. Everything was prepared to perfection and very fresh. Reservations recommended.

Was visiting an ol' High School friend in Chicago and had plans to catch a performance of The Blue Man Group just a short way from the Drake Hotel...on a Friday evening, no less! A dinner/show package was available and we gladly added it to our itinerary. We arrived 15 minutes early for our 6:30 PM reservations. Having picked up... More

Went out to dinner before Pearl Jam show at Wrigley Field. The hostess sat us early when we arrived a bit before our reservation. We had the best table, right on the corner. Our service was fantastic (including a replaced martini when I spilled the first one). Dinner entrees from my party included the pork chop (the sweet potatoes were... More

My daughter and I ate here before Blue Man Group at the Briar Street Theatre, which is less than a block away. The food and service was excellent - a friend of mine and I shared the duck confit entree and scallop entree. My only complaint is that my daughter's flatbread had a large pool of olive oil on it....

Stopped in on a whim and had the shrimp and scallop ceviche. It was delicious and is perfect for any dining on the patio. The duck confit entree was fall off the bone delicious. And Hakim, our server was a great guy and a lot of fun to talk with. I definitely think this is one of the better spots... More
