Frankly, we ended up here because we were looking for a place near the train station, not white tablecloth, that would book a reservation on Thursday for eight people at 6:30 for Friday. Other than the incredible noise from the after-work drinks crowd that made conversation challenging (which cleared around 7:30), we had a good time. Our waitress, Sarah, was... More

Stopped by on a whim, just before going to the Skydeck in Willis Tower, around 5:30 pm. They had a fabulous patio, which is pretty much shielded on three sides. We were seated very promptly, and our server was extremely helpful, and attentive. We were given a dish which was not quite warm enough, and we promptly received a full... More

Very nice restaurant and plenty of servers so service is quite quick with regular top ups of coffee and water. I ordered the cheese melt and asked for well done. I hadn't realized that this chef took well done to mean char grilled. I'm sorry but it spoilt my meal somewhat.

You would think unsalted fries to be easy peasy ? Not here ? I work in the same building and wanted some fries with-no-salt to go. It came triple salted. Went back downstairs, no apologies from the server who originally took the order and guess what ? came back with super salty french fries!!!

we went here for happy hour and tried some of the beers. it was empty when we went but is modern and nice to sit at the bar. it has a business feel about it and think it would have a good atmosphere when its busy.

I enjoyed their small plates and specifically the jerk chicken sliders and sriracha calamari. It was a business meeting but the food distracted us... that is a GOOD thing. Would definitely come back.

Stopped here for a Happy Hour with work colleagues. Like the open space and the seating. Good place to people watch. Didn't get a chance to try the food, but next time.

Townhouse is solid, one of several similar options along Wacker Drive in the west part of the Loop. It's not great for a typical business lunch if you mind a little noise... the restaurant is lively and has excellent fare however so if the noise doesn't bother you I would go for it. We had a group of five and... More

They offer a daily quinoa option, and it was Thai the night I was there. It was absolutely delicious. The building in which the restaurant is located is under construction which has caused the seating area to be smaller than normal so it is a little loud but the service is excellent.
