Ok food. A bit overpriced for portion size. Our table server ignored us and forgot to offer us the. Daily special. Not sure I would go back.

The half price bottles of rose on Sunday a nice deal. The homemade potato crisps tossed with a poached egg was fantastic. We loved the corned beef hash. We can not wait to go back again to try more of Bottlefork's amazing menu.

Great little spot with tremendous food. We ate early and had to fight the line forming for Frontera Grill. We ordered some small plates including Pimento Tots, Flatbread, and Brussel Sprouts. We also split a burger. Everything was delicious - the flatbread was the star and the burger was very rich (and tasty). Would definitely go back.

The salmon and mussels were really good, but the poutine was way too salty. The ribs were very fat and a bit undercooked.

Excellent service! This was our first time eating here and our waitress had great suggestions. Yummy cocktails and the desserts were delicious!
We sat at the food bar and enjoyed the view of the chefs creativity and all of the amazing food that was presented. You can't go wrong!

Bottlefork was a cute little (and I mean little) restaurant that my boyfriend and I stopped at before a comedy show! Bottlefork, along with Bottlefork's homemade chips, was recommended by a co-worker. The food, INCREDIBLE. The service, AWESOME. The prices, EXPENSIVE. The portions. SMALL. **i recommend: chip appetizer (YOU MUST), lamb ribs, lamb meatloaf and wine!!**
Great brunch spot!
This was my first time here. I went for brunch and will definitely be going back for dinner. The food was fantastic and our server was lovely. Even though it was busy, we didn't feel rushed at all during the meal. I highly recommend it!
I found this restaurant while searching on Open Table for somewhere new and fun. It did not disappoint! They have an outstanding cocktail menu, wine list ( including Turley from Paso Robles- a real find in the Midwest), the best burger that I have ever had and the desserts were also amazing! The service was stellar- our server was Eddie and the Nicholas the Operations Manager made sure everything was perfect! This was so good that I went back again two days later! This is a must visit while in the windy city!

So wonder that my sister is bring her husband this Saturday for his birthday
fantastic whiskey and meat spot
The overall ambiance fits the rustic yet modern feel with intriguing wall mounted items. Wait staff was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about all food and drinks available. Food was delicious and I can't wait to try more of there whiskey drinks! Great spot for a date or a dinner event with 4-6 people. Noise level is high, but not so much that you can't hear each other or have to yell. It is also a smaller space, but they don't cram you so close that you have to watch your elbows, it's a comfortable amount of space to eat in peace. I will definitely be back.

Chris, the manager, really took care of us. Our table wasn't ready at our reservation time so he found us a spot at the bar and got us some excellent drinks. Once we were seated, the food was amazing and at a great value. This is a place for sharing and definitely try the chips with a poached egg. Very unique place with great hearty food options. Will definitely go back!
What a find!
Delicious and trendy food! Our waiter was very good, just a little slow with checking on cocktails. However, he planned our entire meal, and each dish was a pleasant surprise. My favorite was the orechiette pasta followed by the lemongrass mussels. The "bag" of crisps and eggs was quite tasty, also, and very different. The only dish I wasn't wowed by was the tots. And the drinks! They are so amazing! Try the smoky drink special of the day. This is a great area with lots going on, and the interior of the restaurant is quite nice.

Tasty, fun for an early or late dinner. Gets crowded and there's a reason why. Was very pleased am with all the items we ordered.
Great food, tight fit
I love this restaurant. It's the second time I've been there to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food is terrific, the service is spot on, but both times I went, we were seated in the high top tables that are crunched together on the side of the restaurant across from the bar. The first time, we squeezed into the spot but it wasn't comfortable. The second time, we chose to eat at the bar instead of at the tiny table for two about 6 inches from a neighboring table on both sides that we were directed to. It wasn't bad at the bar, but far from ideal.

We had an early dinner so it was quiet. It doesn't stand out in my memory overall as outstanding food, though one of the appetizers was quite good.
This place never disappoints!
When I was asked to pick a spot downtown for lunch, it was a no-brainer choosing Bottlefork. Love the open-kitchen style, the menu is great and it's a very casual yet professional dining experience. I also like how they update the menu seasonally. Love it every time. Tip: try the tots!

Nothing special, wanted to try as I really like another restaurant they own but this was not as good.

Reservations before a show and had a fantastic time. You have to sit at the bar and enjoy the people working there. I was lucky enough to be there on a night when they had Daft Punk albums playing! Awesome time. Thanks again Chef!

Food & dishes are both amazing. We loved the beef jerky, egg & chips & the po boy!
Not worth the $$$
Disappointed because we booked the reservation wanting to get the Chefs Week menu, as it was listed on open table as a participating restaurant on Sunday. When we arrived the place was empty, they told us that the didn't start offering the menu until Monday. Food was OK, but nothing special. Took forever for a server to come over to the table.
We had Eddie for a server and he is amazing. Food was great, experience was awesome. We will be back!
They have the best French toast I've ever had! The bourbon maple syrup add-on is a must!

As always, excellent jazz! Sat at the bar as there was a two hour sitting limit for tables. The patrons, the music, the history and the vibe make for wonderful night.

Not impressed with drinks or the food. Some items were too salty. Very loud in there and hard to hold a conversation with the person right next to you. Waitress was not knowledgeable of the drinks.
