Second visit to the restaurant in 6 months and we are planning on hosting our work holiday dinner here in December. Everything was great from the service to the food. Highly recommend this restaurant. English pea soup and bouillabaisse were excellent! More

Contemporary American | Downtown / Loop, Chicago

I went for an early dinner with my mom, her friend, and her friend's son. It was quiet because we went during an off-hour. One of the people in our party is a very picky eater, but this was the only restaurant we went to all weekend where she didn't have any complaints. Other than the restaurant being a bit hard to find, I give it an A+ for having a great menu, being close to the train station, and being on the river. More

It took a little too long for our serve to come to us initially. After that the food was excellent, the margaritas were very good and it wasn't terribly expensive. Had a very good time. More

Contemporary American | West Loop, Chicago

One of the best menus I've had in the city of Chicago. The attention to detail is excellent, but it's the attention to taste that really stands out. Not only did each dish have an eclectic arrangement of flavors, the pairings with wine, beer, sake, and cider were spot on. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and look forward to going back. More

Our favorite sushi spot for the past 30 years. There's a reason Jim and Sai Cafe have been around so long. It's the best sushi in the city (and we've been to a lot of the other places). More

We're all about fun at AceBounce. But we take dining seriously. Our carefully curated menu, built by award-winning culinary artist Rick Gresh, takes heritage Mediterranean, Asian and American recipes and transforms them with locally sourced ingredients. The end result: dishes that are designed to bring people together.

Our menu is made up of easy-to-share dishes that are perfect for groups or a couple's night out. We start with materials from local farmers and artisan producers, add a nod to the classic influences of Mediterranean, Asian and American cooking, and then infuse them with fun.

AceBounce also features premium cocktails that will elevate the spirit of your visit. Our chief mixologist Peter Vestinos was named "The Nation's Most Inspired Bartender" in 2008 for good reason. The custom cocktails at AceBounce are as varied and unique as Chicago's many neighborhoods. More
