I am huge fan of Top Chef and great food, so when my husband surprised me with NYE dinner at Spiaggia, I was very excited. We walked into the entrance - which is lined with bottles of wine (very cool) - and were greeted by friendly hosts. We were then shown to our table. And this is where the experience... More

We had booked dinner here to celebrate our anniversary while visiting Chicago and since this was directly across the street from the Drake Hotel where we were staying. We knew ahead of time it was not going to be cheap, and that in the usual Italian fine-dining manner, you're kind of expected to order a first plate, pasta dish and... More

We had planned this anniversary celebration for a long time. A winter storm significantly delayed our arrival and I was very happy with having our time adjusted. We had the eight course tasting menu with international wine pairings. This is really more of en evening of being pampered and entertained as opposed to simply a good meal. At least that... More

Went to Spiaggia for the second time during our yearly Christmas/Birthday getaway to Chicago. Greeted by friendly staff who sat us where we requested upon making our reservation, great. However our initial delight quickly eroded after our cocktail order was strangely missing in action; only to learn later that the bar had no mint to make a mojito; okay reordered... More

Spiaggia at 980 North Michigan Avenue, at the corner of Michigan and Oak, across the street from the Drake Hotel, is the kind of restaurant that you call for reservations at least two months in advance, which I did. And I requested a table at the front window overlooking Oak Street Beach and Lake Michigan, which I got. And I... More

Not good . Spent too much but the food and wine pairings were not good. The wines from all over the world seemed cheap and the food was Not good.

Spaiggia offers elegant decor and a beautiful view of Michigan Ave., but that's where the accolades stop. The portions were tiny and mediocre in taste. The appetizer both my husband and I chose was nothing more than a handful of greens over some sort of squash and was ridiculously priced at $18.00. My bass entree (shoved into the corner of... More

My husband and I weren't feeling that hungry when we visited so decided to opt for a few dishes from the bar menu. We ordered a glass of rosé each and vongole to start followed by a panna cotta with crispy parsnips for dessert - all were lovely. The barman - who also acted as our waiter - was very... More

Friends and I took my daughter here for her birthday. She loves food and wine, and when we travel we like to try Michelin restaurants as well as well-reviewed local restaurants in an attempt to get a "feel" for the dining options in the city. Several reasons why we felt this restaurant fell short of it's reputation, and not all... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile.

It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
