Perhaps the best location on the river walk. Shaded by trees. Nice view of the Wrigley Building. But the food underwhelms. And the staff did not appear to enjoy their work.

You can't beat Cyrano's Cafe and Wine Bar for a nice glass of wine and atmosphere! I felt as if I were in France, and even got to talk to the famous Chef (very French) who owns the cafe, which added a very special touch....More

Not the best French food you'll have in Chicago, but pretty tasty and well prepared considering constraints of the kitchen facilities. Real star is the river seating area and gardens Chef Didier has been able to maintain despite being squeezed by the tour boat docks....More

I was alone and waiting for a riverboat tour. I happened across Cyrano's and was happy for a place to wait! There were few people there, it was pre-lunchtime, and I sat down and was fairly quickly attended to by a nice waiter. I ordered...More

Went here with the family for a bite before heading to Millennium Park to hear the symphony. Surprisingly, it wasn't crowded on a lovely Saturday at 7 in August... I think I know why: decent food, but incredibly stupid and/or dishonest waitstaff. Food was good:...More

As waiting for the architectural tour we placed an order to go. While waiting my two aunts in their 70s we were instructed to not use the extra chairs stacked aside near the tables, so we stood up and waited. 30 m later we inquired...More
