Great dinner on a random Wednesday night out with a friend. Our server Michael was excellent and explained the food to a “T” when we had questions. My only criticism was that the wine was very pricey. But we enjoyed that too. More

Mariel was such a great server! The manager was very polite as well. I don’t leave reviews often but I felt the need to tonight. They delivered great customer service, and the food was delicious. The interior design is eye catching and their music is on point, along with all the other aspects of the restaurant. I will definitely bevback again soon. More

This is our second time at Tao and the experience was just great. What we noticed this time is the outstanding light show they have on the 24 hand Buddha which changes every 10 minutes. The drinks are very good but not so are the prices. Food is very creative and service exceptional. We will go back. More

This is a very chic restaurant with great food and ambiance. My girlfriend and I had a great time here and will return very soon. I had the mussels, she had the scallops, we shared some cauliflower and escargot. I don't have any complaints really, my only critique is that our cocktails tasted a bit watered down for the price. Will will be back very soon. More

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
