The food was exquisite. The chef walked around checking with his guests how they were enjoying the food. Lovely atmosphere. I was visiting from Ireland and wanted to experience the taste of Chicago. The food had Mexican flavors with a lovely French Flair. Absolutely a lovely experience with excellent service.

We came intending to try the restaurant week menu but instead went with the lamb and duck entrees on the main menu. These were both delicious, perfectly prepared and well-presented. We ended with the chocolate fondant dessert which was both delicious and pretty to look at! Service was good, but not excellent.

This unassuming little restaurant was a wonderful find. The restaurant is an attractive room with the maitre d’ station immediately in front and a nice sized bar just past. There are about twenty or so tables for dinning, including a full banquette. We had reservations and we were seated immediately. Hats and coats were all swiftly rounded up and taken... More

Short business lunch here and both meals were stellar. The presentation, in particular, was a step above even fine dining standard, and the combination of flavors was creative, thoughtful, and most importantly, successful. It's immediately apparent why this is a Michelin-starred property.

We enjoyed a late lunch at Mexique's in October. The food and service were both very good. The atmosphere is excellent and had a great vibe. Although located on the near west side, make a point to visit. We intend to try dinner at Mexique in the near future,

My wife & I stopped in from out of town to visit this place that she had found online. As a michelin star restaurant, we were excited. We also noticed that as a michelin star restaurant, expectations were formed. SO - if I were reviewing this restaurant as a "normal" restaurant, it would have been excellent. Because of our high...

Very creative. I had a rack of lamb and it is the best rack of lamb ever and I had so many of them. My friend had duck plate and it was awsome too.

We went on a Wednesday night and the place was fairly empty . Service was great, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and tried to pair some wine. I personally did not like the Malbec they had. The appetizers we ordered were fantastic although very small. The mussels with chorizo and the chicken tinga both were very well... More
