Mott Street, a restaurant on Ashland near Wicker Park, serves interesting, delicious Asian-influenced food.
Great overall experience! We were seated in a timely manner, the food was amazing and the service was great!
Always a fantastic experience at Mott Street.
best coconut pancakes ever! My son does not usually eat pancakes anywhere expect at home. And he ate all of themZ they were absolutely delicious!!!
The overall experience was wonderful. We went as a group of four, which worked out well for sharing. We ordered seven dishes for the table - four small, one medium, and two large. All were tasty but the standouts were the whole fish, spicy udon noodles and the stuffed cabbage. The service was great as well. In my book, any time it’s barely noticeable that you’re being taken care of is a sign of great service. We had one friend who was eating vegetarian, and I thought our server Simon did a wonderful job walking her through the options. Thanks Simon and company! The drinks and drink options were nice - good variety across the board. The ambience I would describe as cozy. The best part was that the noise level was just right. Often small places can get unmanageable in terms of the noise but no issues here. Highly recommend for a date or just going out with friends.
We have been looking forward to eating at this restaurant since first learning about it. The entire meal was fantastic. everything we ordered was terrific from small plates to the fish of the day and dessert. A definite foodie restaurant.
Prior to our trip to Chicago I saw Mott Street's Kimchi lasagne on FB. A weekday reservation was not too difficult to come by. Ordering was a bit of a challenge as my 11 year old has a bit of a discriminating palate. She still managfed to find some brussel sprouts and pork dumplings to satisfy her palate and fill her up. The brussel sprouts (the few she allowed us to sample) were amazing - perfectly roasted and skillfully seasoned. The rice noodle soup (similar to pho) was good, but was probably my least favorite dish of the evening. The chicken wings, however, were divine. They were reminiscent of Korean fried chicken we have sampled in LA - it just seemed odd to serve them with tzatziki, but that didn't detract from their deliciousness. Then came the piece de resistance, the cabbage roll. It everything I had hoped it would be. The pork was tender and flavorful, the sticky and crispy rice was the perfect yummy texture and the kimchi based sauce added the perfect seasoning combination. It was layers of flavor that combined to explode in your mouth.
We heard the brunch at Mott was amazing and we had already experienced a couple of excellent dinners. We ended up having the buyer and the Karl I and eggs. I would highly recommend both.
This may be my favorite restaurant in Chicago.
Service was poor - hostess was unfriendly and slow. She tried to seat my boyfriend and me at a communal table when there were open two seaters by the window. We asked if we could sit by the window and she said she would have to check and walked away. Did not come back for a while and we were left to stand around in the middle of the restaurant. Waitress was extremely slow, water and coffee did not get refilled for a long time. Food is good but overpriced.
Delicious assortment of Asian themed dishes. The burger is top notch. Mainly communal style seating so don’t expect a lot of privacy
Fantastic food experience. Burger is top two in Chicago! Donuts with caramel are game changers. Fun atmosphere with the group tables. Cool spot.
Awesome food and cocktails in a great area. Music selection was fantastic and the service was incredible.
Waitress was very soft spoken and hard to understand. But overall the food was delicious!
Server recommended 5-7 dishes split between the two of us. We ordered 4 and he encourages us to get one more and we did. Too much food. Our favorite thing was the cauliflower and other items left me a little disappointed.
Great food! The burger is worth the hype!!
My partner and I were there for our anniversary and were blown away by the service. We were greeted with two glasses of prosecco on the house for celebrating our anniversary with them. The food was coursed for us and we never felt rushed. Everything we had was delicious and we definitely have high standards for food. HIGHLY recommend. We will be returning.
Great service and food was good.
Very tasty. Udon noodles were great - a bit salty - but delicious. Calamari was good. Veggies were tasty. Family style seating but we were not crowded. Attentive service. A bit noisy but fun food. Not your average menu. We would return with friends so we could try more dishes.
Great service. Delicious food! Terrific gluten-free options. And don’t even get me started on the beverage program...too good!!!
Delicious and creative food. Excellent service. Beautiful cocktails. Everything you need. Will return again soon.
Such innovative and delicious twists on Asian dishes! The kimchi udon was incredible, reminiscent of a creamy carbonara :O The goat stew with sesame leaves was so creative with new tastes I had never experienced before.
Everything was amazing. So amazing I went two weekends in a row!
Excellent service and awesome food! I had coconut pancakes, congee and dumplings for brunch. We will be back for dinner and try their handcrafted cocktails.
We tried the Chinese New Year tasting menu. Outstanding!!!!
The place was great! Servers were incredibly friendly and the food and drinks were fantastic!
Mott Street was a great experience. The ambiance of the restaurant is incredibly cozy. The food is among the best in Chicago. Seriously, order anything and you'll be over the moon. 5/5 cannot recommend enough.
Best restaurant in Chicago. Eat there tonight or kill yourself, there is no in between.
I went out to celebrate my boyfriends birthday dinner - which I told the host and waiter about. Nothing was exceptional, the food was overcooked, and we were rushed out.
Amazing meal. Steve recommended the right portions. Everything was excellent. The grilled cauliflower and dumplings were amazing but the pièce de résistance is the Mott Burger..SO GOOD!!!!!
Stellar! Must try the kimchi hash at brunch! Cocktails and hot toddies were just as good as the food.
Love the atmosphere of Mott Street. It’s casual but nice. Food is comfortable and still inventive. We have eaten dinner and brunch here and both offer amazing options. They also are great for accommodating food allergies and my kids (ages 5-9) love it here.
Best burger yet!
Loved every single thing we tried
Really cool restaurant. Great food and service. Tables are small and close together but that just adds to the lively atmosphere.
Great time. Oyster mushrooms were fantastic, the whole meal was but the flavors in the mushroom dish was outstanding. Server explained the options well, she was attentive and did not leave us wanting for anything. Would recommend anytime. I’m
Love the food. Been back several times. My favorite is the bread with the sauce on the cauliflower dish, the wings and the fish & rice & leaves dish.
We loved the food and had excellent service, but unfortunantly, the restaurant was so loud we could barely hear our server, let along each other. Pretty disappointing on a date night!
Went for Sunday brunch. Wouldn't seat us until our whole party arrived which was fine. However there isn't a proper waiting area so the entrance was a bit crowded. Service was a bit slow however the food was fantastic!
Loud room; lots of diners packed into a small space. The food is excellent though. It’s a hybrid between East Asian and western techniques.
