What's included

  • Diners can select the following from Executive Chef Mark Payne's brasserie-inspired menu:
  • Any selection from the hors d'oeuvre menu; start with steak tartare, a charcuterie plate or the chicken liver and foie gras mousse that the Chicago Reader called "as silky, flavorful, and delicate as could be" (up to $17)
  • An entree like mussels and frites served with saffron and curry, or steak au poivre with duck fat roasted potatoes; selections include nightly specialties like sole meuniere and coq au vin (up to $32, excludes only the lobster thermidor)
  • Any dessert like the lemon tart from Chef Payne's family recipe or the "deca-dent" 10-layer chocolate cake the Sun-Times called "spectacular in every respect" (up to $8)
  • A cocktail like the Pear Necessity with Grey Goose pear vodka, St. Germaine, white grape juice and a squeeze of lemon, or a glass of wine like 2009 Guigal Cotes du Rhone (up to $14)
  • Diners can choose to bring a date and enjoy dinner for two for $85, regularly $142, or purchase multiple vouchers and visit with a group of four. Those just interested in sipping some drinks at the bar can purchase a voucher for four cocktails for $35, regularly $56, and all food purchased at the bar receives an extra 25% discount.

The server was one of the best we have ever had.

The ambiance was very ordinary, just an open area in the lobby. The food was average at best. Some of the lettuce was brown. The asparagus was inedible. The onion soup was so heavy in onions and bread that I didn't finish it. The steak was very unspectacular. The drinks were overpriced and so so. We spent more over and above the voucher than we spent on an outstanding dinner the following evening. This was our first disappointment with Travel Zoo vouchers.

The food, the service, the live music and the ambiance was great!

The service was great.

The view and ambiance was great, but the order got mixed up uncoordined and the rack of lamb was cold and slightly uncooked. Salad not great. The rest of the dishes were original and good. Service was reasonable but not outstanding, for the establishment.

The waitstaff and food was great! Couldn't have asked for a better anniversary dinner.
