Would have been an easy 5 stars for the food alone... but... waited 20 minutes for our drinks, which was strange as three people came to the table to see if we were helped... when we asked for salt and pepper we got some small old creepy salt shaker that was all clogged up.. no pepper. And since we were still waiting on drinks no one was around. I went to the hostess and she said, and this sounds SOO affected, Well we really don't DO salt and pepper.. And the lovely lovely bathrooms, with such nice soap, had no toilet paper! All that being said the cauliflower was simply delicious, the salmon was perfect, the pizza was very very nice. and they did comp the first set of drinks!

My first time going to Nellcote, I was very put off by the idea of them charging me $3 for bread, but honestly, it is money well spent. Everything at Nellcote is fresh and hyper local which ends up giving you a very pleasant dining experience. You can't get much more from scratch than milling your own flour in house or churning your own butter. The Robuchon Potatoes are the best incarnation of a mashed potato that I've ever tasted in my life. Eating those smooth rich potatoes pretty much ruins every other preparation of mashed potatoes that you can imagine. They were definitely the highlight of my meal and are something to be ordered every time you go. The servers are very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu, which is laid out in such a way that it denotes everything that is vegetarian, making it easy for the meat free people in the world to navigate the menu. They even suggested a couple of dishes that we could modify in order to make meat free. The server I had was so friendly and helpful, that I almost felt like a longtime friend was serving my food. She was friendly and attentive while not trailing into that creepy overbearing type of region. For pizza, I went with the spicy n'duja. It had just the right amount of spice so it hit you and didn't overwhelm you. The spinach on the pizza stood up so well among the spices providing this wonderful deep grassy notes alongside the meat. The crust was thin and tasty and gave you just enough structure to hold on to. For dessert, we took the advice of our server and went with the Chocolate parfait. When asking her what was her favorite, that was her suggestion. I almost completely dismissed it not being a fan of chocolate, but that would have been a huge mistake. Sometimes dessert can bring a meal down a bit, but this one dish didn't just come together and sing in harmony, it created a full five act opera in your mouth. Nellcote, with it's amazing service, dainty romantic atmosphere, and incredible food and drinks supplants itself as one of my favorites in Chicago.

Brunch. Interesting decor is entertaining. Menu is normal food strangely named. Servings small but are well done. Service was poor.

Beautiful decor (high ceilings, great decor and crystal chandeliers all add to the effect). Great wine list, and nice assortment of options on the menu, My scallops were amazing,and gnocchi pasta course was great as well; the pizza we ordered I would give a "good"... Overall portions seemed on the small side given price. Lastly our table location detracted from the experience (on the balcony level) as we felt a little left out of the vibe and view downstairs. Overall I liked it, and am likely to return (but request a table on the main level next time.) Definitely worth checking out.

This place has a very chic atmosphere and the food is priced well. Most of the dishes that I have tried were great, but I did have a few that were just okay. My favorite dish on the dinner menu is the sunny side up egg organic pizza. If you have not tried a fried egg on a pizza yet, this is a great place to do it! I have enjoyed myself every time I've been here however would say that their brunch menu is stronger than their dinner menu. If you go for brunch, make sure you get the pot of creamy polenta speckled with sausage and poached eggs. It is unreal and unlike any other breakfast/brunch dish I have had.

I can think of about 100 things I need to improve on... but for Nellcote, none. The restaurant is large but the seperated seating areas make it cozy and help keep down noise. The ambiance is very classy and fancy, though one of the hostesses was wearing a cheap looking hunter orange stocking cap with her dress, so maybe more come as you are? We came for restaurant week and thankfully were persuaded by our waitress to order off the regular menu which saved us some cash. Me and a girlfriend split a pasta, veggie and pizza for around $40not including tip and it was perfect, as in, not a bite left! Everything was amazing, almost impossible for us to pick a favorite. We loved the Pickled Cauliflower at $7. Flavor explosion. First bite I said salt, second bite was honey, then I got pepper. Half the dish consist of Arugala which was a surprise, but a welcome one at that. I will be attempting to recreate this at home for sure. The second dish to come out was the Chestnut Agnolotti at $15. Homemade butternut squash ravioli with braised duck, brussel sprouts and goat gouda. The flavor was very complex and I put my fork down to savor each bite. With about 8 double A battery sized ravioli it would be hard to split between more than two because it was so good. Yes, I just compared their food to a battery, hereby crushing my dreams at ever becoming a real food critic. Last but not least we had the Fennel Sausage Pizza at $11, definitely the most hearty and filling. Hen of the woods mushrooms, parmigiano, tomato sauce, mozzarella. Their homemade crust was fluffy yet chewy and perfect to soak up the two glasses on wine I had consumed. I want to try everything on the menu, other that the foie gras and clam pizza, but I don't know if I could try something new as our dishes were all so complex and delicious! Hands down, I recommend Nellcote to everyone, also recommend the bartender to develop a heavier poor with the wine!
