All good, nice atmosphere, good food, attention is just about right.
Well we had a reservation and they tried sitting us upstairs against the wall and it was so HOT so we asked and they re set us downstairs . The portions were very small, I had the sea bass 38.00 with risotto and it had two bones in it . It was cooked properly but very small portion . My sister had the lobster Mac and cheese and said it was good but wouldn’t order it again and my mom had the lobster ravioli and said it was delicious . She got 6 on her plate for 17.00 and she would get it again
Solid choice for type of foodie. Shrimp and Cod tacos were very solid choices. The Charred Brussels were amazing!!
Dinner was ok, but the server wasn’t the most helpful. He didn’t have much to say re: the menu. No help at all, luckily we made great decisions independently. We wasn’t aware of a gratuity charge for 2 people dining, so that was a surprise. Love the atmosphere though!
Great food, great service, but a bit on the pricier side. Hope prices can be controlled so that we can go here more often.
Great waitress,great food glad they had the packers on t.v.
Excellent service and food. Nice atmosphere. I highly recommend it!
First and chips were very good
I come at least twice a month for work travel. Theres a large selection.
The food is good and the service was fine. What costs this restaurant points is the fact that it is cold indoors when the weather outdoors is cold. The two entrances set up a wind tunnel through the ground level space.
The grilled octopus was the best I've ever had anywhere. Good service, good food and nice environment.
Juan was our sever, he was awesome .we will definitely return
The Kale salad was awesome, however the short ribs were terrible. I have had better short ribs at gastro pubs. The drinks were strong and delicious. The wine menu was very limited. Chicago has so many awesome restaurants that I feel like I would never need to eat here again. The waiter was trying to rush us to order and did not seem to be interested in explaining anything or providing quality customer service.
Dinner out with our son!! Great staff! Great service! Food was good!
We went after movie for dinner we ordered our appetiser and main course together ,not realising that waiter will not have that the common sense of not bringing everything together along with our drinks.This of course crammed the table resulting in spilling of wine and then nobody came to offer help to clean up. It was all mess.we picked up napkins from neighbouring tables to clean up. Luckily the food was saved.we were hardly done eating that waiter was there with a check without enquiring if we wanted coffee or dessert etc.looked liked they they just wanted us out.
Unfortunately they have already included gratuity in the check or I would have given nothing.food was fair
Everything was just okay.
Always a great experience coming here. It’s never too busy and the food is always solid. Service has always been great too.
Beautiful restaurant. However our dessert was cold. The cake crumpled and cold, you could tell they had the chocolate cake in the fridge before they have it to us. They could have atleast warmes it up a few seconds before bringing to the table. Short walking distant from our hotel and other nearby places. Great selection and decent prices.
Great, overall menu for reasonable, casual dining. Open very late and right next door to AMC theatre. It’s become our Go To place when we come out of a film.
First Time There, was very pleased, will definitely return.
We split the grilled calamari and the prosciutto flatbread. The calamari was amazing! The flatbread was good, a bit salty and could have used more balsamic. The service started off good, but then it seemed that our waiter got lost and never came back. When he did he brought the wrong check. Luckily a manager noticed and was able to help.
Service was great! Tasty food.
Our experience was below par
Service was very slow
Our Server was constantly doing a disappearing act
We were celebrating a birthday and had written it on our open table reservation- mentioned it again to the hostess who sat us.... made mention of it to the server when asked to see dessert menu but there was not even a happy birthday congrats or a candle on his dessert. We even sang happy birthday but no staff acknowledged the occasion.
Next special occasion will not be celebrated there!
Place for tourists.
Weekend trip to Chicago for fall break
Food took a ridiculous amount of time to come out (like 1h) during lunch rush. Ugh!
I came here for a meeting with my family to discuss out future plans and just to talk and catch up. We had a great time and experience. The amount of food given was great for the price amount. We ordered different things and did a food share. The waitress and maybe manager was great. We spoke with them about the food items and the waitress was very caring and nice. It was a great experience and I would definitely be going back and recommend to others.
We had a great time and the food was good. Lobster Mac n cheese, cool feature having goldfish crackers. Fish and chips with very very good cole slaw. And the spinach artichoke dip with warm pita is delicious.
ended up here because I had a business meeting at Embassy Suites; did not realize that Bellwether was actually part of the hotel. Regardless it was a nice clean, contemporary place- had the lamb burger which was excellent, my guest had the chicken sandwich which was so big he didn't finish it. all washed down with a nice local IPA (Face Melter!! best name yet)- waitress was great!
Food was good, but lunch menu nowhere near as nice as the dinner menu. Love the place otherwise though!
Love everything about this establishment. Perfect for any occasion.
Found this fantastic gem! I was told by a friend to visit this place. It was fabulous every dish I tried (which was a little of everyone’s) was exceptional. The staff is so helpful and attentive, they really created an experience. Great Vibes! We will for sure come back.
Great place for a nice casual meal in Chicago. Reasonable prices and good food selections.
Food generally very good. Green beans with spare ribs nothing special. Scallops very good and well done as we requested. Server very good. Would have preferred a more recognizable wine list but was ok. Would go back.
We loved this restaurant. There was a nice variety of food on the menu and the prices were very reasonable. The beef tenderloin sliders were to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant!
I would recommend Bellwether to anyone who wants a nice dining experience with a variety of menu options to fit most dietary types. At our most recent visit, our appetizers arrived extremely late and were immediately followed by our entrees. I am sure this was a timing issue due to the busy start of dinner hour.
I LOVE the spring rolls and the Stella burger ! A favorite and a must have everytime !
Always delicious. Fair prices.
Bellwether was amazing. My boyfriend and I went there for dinner for a date night downtown. Food was great, ambiance was amazing and it was decently priced for it being downtown. Definitely would return again.
Great service, made my daughter a plate of spaghetti even though it wasn’t on the menu. Thanks
