We've been here 5 or 6 times now for brunch, and each time was delicious. The menu is truly seasonal and fresh, and the bacon...good lord. Thick, thick cut. Delicious. Great spot to bring your parents for brunch when they're in town.

Perennial Virant is a must, I cannot say enough about the food, service, and management. Amazing food, local fresh vegetables, the flavors were incredible. Try the canned, in house, vegetables, part of an incredible appetizer. Enjoy!

My favorite Boka group restaurant - heck, my favorite overall restaurant in Chicago. Our server was knowledgeable and able to recommended wines based on the flavor notes we were looking for, despite the plaid shirt. We started with a medium plate of scallops and watermelons, and were amazed. The little melons were spiced with cherry bomb peppers, which sounds intimidating, but the heat was dispersed and it paired amazingly well with the seared, rare scallops. Definitely a taste combination I'd never had before, and one I want again. Next we got our large plates, Walleyed Pike for her and Young Chicken for me. Both incredible, savory dishes. The fact that everything is farm-to-plate is nice, but the kitchen could be a Syngenta laboratory for all I care and I'd still give them 5 stars. If it tasted the same, that is.

Posh, with a great location. I went there on New Year's Eve with a group of friends, and we did a 5-course pre-fixe tasting menu for $100 per person (which didn't include tax, gratuity, or any beverages). The service was good and the food was tasty and creative, but the portions were really, really tiny considering the prices. Each of the five courses was pretty much two bites each. Maybe things were different that night since it was New Year's Eve, but I thought the food was extremely overpriced.

Love the corner location across from the park. Corned by busy streets, but it doesn't feel that way as the inside feels cosy. The prosciutto beignets are an absolute must as an appetizer and I like the TBD cocktail. I love that everything is fresh and locally sourced. Great service and overall good experience.

Service is a key ingredient for any restaurant that wants to be top of the line. While the atmosphere and the scenic view are one of the best in Chicago, the service personnel need more training. Cutting across, reaching out, interrupting a romantic conversation just to take away a glass of wine, which was not quite empty just rude. We got the message that we were not welcome. My wife and I spent $200 bucks.... we lasted 53 minutes.
