I took clients here for dinner and they absolutely loved it! We ordered 4 different appetizers and 4 entrees. It's a wonderful place to have taste tests - passing the dishes around. The food is very fresh and served with a wonderful presentation. They have a great selection of wines and after dinner drinks.

Went here on a date. Food was incredible. The ambiance was relaxing and calming. Cocktails paired nicely with all dishes. Great new restaurant in West Town. Highly recommend

I took my wife for Valentines Day and the place was PACKED. Our server was extremely nice and didn't have a ton of time to spend with us, but did recommend a few items on the menu. We picked two of her suggestions added two of our own (shared small plates - then two entrees we shared). Our server's suggestions... More

Food is good but not great. Pimento cheese, duck fat potato croquettes , cauliflower all excellent. Double beef burger, roasted chicken wagyu beef pot pie are good , ricotta mushroom cavatelli, not so much. Skip desserts, not a strong suit. Service very good-helpful, very attentive & good knowledge of wines. Minimalists decor but attractive. But this is maybe the loudest... More

What we've found to be so entertaining and interesting about the new breed of restaurants in the Chicago area are the unique and strange names and the curious concoctions of food. For example, whoever thought you'd be ordering Puppy Chow for a dessert? But that's the signature dessert at Two Restaurant & Bar at 1132 West Grand Avenue in the... More

Small plates are not my favorite restaurant genre (I don't like getting things in a random sequence and at random times), so my expectations for Two were somewhat muted. However, the service was excellent and the food was GREAT!! The combination of small and medium plates on the menu was very good -- duck egg fettucine, lamb loin, and cauliflower... More

Love the seasonal fresh food, informative waiters, attentive staff. Constantly changing menu which makes it a great place to go. Love Zak's in downtown Hinsdale. The owner/manager has another home run with TWO in Chicago. My sister & her family are there all the time since they live there.

Two has an inviting atmosphere where diners are surrounded by beautiful second-life decor. They offer medium and small plates to share that feature in-season farm-to-table ingredients. Although there are a lot of spectacular offerings for the carnivores in our group, there were some delicious options for those of us who do not eat pork or beef. The service was exceptional... More

We were looking for a bit of a change-up from some of the other local restaurants we have visited, and heard about Two from some friends. We decided to stop in and have a drink at the bar. The two bartenders were super friendly and funny. We enjoyed talking to them and sharing a variety of stories. As we waited... More

Had a referral from a friend that I likely can never repay. Two offers a variety of small and medium carnivorously oriented plates emphasizing high quality ingredients. At two, it's not about white table clothes, it's all about amazing food. And I'm not someone that uses the word amazing lightly. Let me help you navigate your gastronomic adventure: Duck fat...

TWO Restaurant and Bar The comfortable atmosphere, with artful second-life decor, makes it a perfect West Side neighborhood gathering place. Influenced by the quality and tradition of family run butcher shops, TWO sources from trusted, small mid-western farms. They are often the first Chicago restaurant to feature renowned items, such as the heritage Hampshire pork, on their menu. TWO chefs make all their bacon, sausage, jerky, cheese, sauces and pastas in house and are constantly exploring new and seasonal dishes to feature those ingredients.
