Definitely one of the top ten restaurants in Chicago. Very tasty , very creative and very tasteful menue. Great and special atmosphere and a place to go to ! We also love the fact that they change the menue daily. The Sepia is outstanding.

Dining at Sepia was such a wonderful experience. From the wine to the presentation of the food, everything was excellent. Had reservation but had to wait a little. But the food more than made up for it. Loved everything at Sepia.
