Stunning view & strong, delicious drinks! The queso is a must try!
My wife and I had a wonderfully quiet dinner together overlooking the river toward Lake Michigan. The service was excellent, as was the food.
Saturday night slow
Saturday night group business dinner of 12. They weren't particularly busy. We were in a corner purchasing cocktails and a variety of apps from their strictly app menu. The wait was very long for the food and the quality was not good. $1,000 bill later and no one at our table was raving. It's great scenery with a hip décor. I've had much better experiences at the Trump and sorry they weren't prepared this evening.

We thought this was a good restaurant for dinner, but it does not have a dinner menu. Mostly appetizers and bar.
Trump knows how its done!
This was our second time visiting Rebar, and the experience both times was fabulous. Our seats were right up against the window with a fabulous view of the river, the boats, the Michigan Avenue bridge, and the lake beyond. The drinks are pricey no doubt, but with the flawless service and the relaxed ambience, it is well worth it. The seasoned popcorn is a nice touch (especially if you love popcorn as much as I do). We were also served wasabi peas.

Pink Affair is a must! It's usually not on the menu but it's available if you ask for it. The mother butters popcorn is addicting!

Perfect for appetizer and drinks before dinner or coffee & baileys with dessert after dinner. Great food, excellent views of the city and fantastic service! We come every time we visit Chicago.
Disssatisfaction guaranteed! First time here in this tiny lounge, and I am not coming back any time soon. Skyline view was nice and crowed was pleasant, ambiance was not as eclectic. An order of their expensive $22 savorless 4-piece dumplings took 40 mins to be served. Music played that weekend was ok. Drinks were ok, ladies drinks were ok. No parking validation nor parking discount. I expected more,.. should've just gone elsewhere.
Best view of Chicago River
We went here just for an after-dinner cocktail. It is a beautiful view over the Chicago River and downtown. We didn't order any food, but the nuts/popcorn came complimentary and were tasty. Cocktails are pricey, but good. Service is friendly too. Expect a lot of skin exposure when you come here, but what else at a swanky Trump bar?

Enjoyable as well as satisfying. Will go back for sure.
Always my go to place! My absolute favorite!!!!! Recommend for date night!!
Always is perfect
Always is perfect for every moment ! I took my mom there and she loved a lot the place and the coctels
Great View but Pricey
Rebar has a fantastic view and great food/wine but you will be paying a premium for the experience. I would recommend it for a glass or two of wine and an appetizer during the spring/summer/fall to get the most of the river front view.

Very pricey cocktails. It's very good but expensive.
Modern plush bar with wonderful views!
Sit by the windows @ ReBar & you have great views of the Chicago river. Ambiance is modern and comfortable. Drinks are a little pricey, but the ones with bourbon are easily worth it. Don't settle for just drinks though - their kitchen also serves up delectable appetizers. The lamb meatballs and the buttersquash + pistachio + sausage flatbread is highly recommended. Service is good too.
Este lugar es magico fantastico me encanta cada vez que vengo y contemplo el rio! Es mi favorito para Pasar y tomarme un trago!
Views great, food not!
I was disappointed. They changed the menu and I was very disappointed in their selections. Great view, poor food choices.
Came here on Valentine's day as an end to the evening. My date was greeted with a red rose - nice touch. We were then taken to our table, right by the window looking over the river. So far, so good. However a couple of things irked me. The music was too loud for the environment. The bar has chairs ideal for lounging in - this naturally encourages one to spread out a little. However doing so left the two of us unable to hear each other. So all of the couples were joined up close at their tables, rather than relaxing a touch more with more space. It just didn't quite fit the ambiance for romance. Our server was a lovely guy, but made a couple of mistakes - firstly bringing the wrong wine, then bringing the wrong bill at the end. OK, everyone is human, but again it didn't contribute to the relaxed, effortless mood I was hoping for.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
Go For the View and Drinks
Good spot for a before or after drink. Limited food menu for snacks. Call ahead if you have a group of 4 for a table and want to sit down on a Friday/Saturday.
Gorgeous View for Cocktails
I brought my best friend here for cocktails after work on a Friday. I made reservations so we could have a table by the window...that's the best view. I'd much rather come here than the Signature Lounge for drinks. The river is all lit up and if you come on a fireworks night you can see them at Navy Pier. We got cocktails that were great, a bit pricy but that's what you pay for the view and ambience. We ordered hummus and a flatbread. Also they brought complimentary olives and popcorn as nibbles. By accident they brought us the wrong flatbread and let us keep that one free plus the correct one we ordered, both were tasty. A great place to start your evening out in Chicago.
Since the hotel opened, we have visited Rebar or eaten at 16 on every visit to Chicago, every 1 - 2 months. On our last visit, we were disappointed to learn they have changed their wine list offerings at Rebar. Clearly, they have downgraded their Cabernet from the Jordan they used to serve. The quality of the food and service remain excellent. We are hopeful that they will reconsider their choice of house wines for Rebar.
Great night cap
A great place to end a Chicago night out; with fantastic river views and very chic atmosphere.
We were there for a drink .. Outstanding & attentive service.
Great Decor and Food
We loved everything at Rebar... from the service to the food. The french fries were the best french fries I've ever had. I don't know what they do to them... or how they do it, but it was love in my mouth. Our server was wonderful and very nice and attentive.
Lovely evening with excellent food and drinks
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves the other night at Rebar. I chose the Pink Lady for my drink and it was wonderful. I had the spiced lamb meatballs while there and they were excellent. My husband had India Ale and chose the Braised short rib sliders to eat. We both enjoyed the complimentary popcorn and olives too! We will definitely be going back soon.
The setting and view was relaxing and lovely.
The Christmas decorations in the lobby were tastefully done. The gentlemen at the entrance were welcoming. The window view was very nice. The St. Jude's elevator was well done. The drink menu was quite limited. The Margarita was poorly made. The popcorn and olives were adequate.
Ambience and view was good but the menu online showed a great line up of sushi which they apparently have not had for over a year. One tuna app only. Apps are 25 bucks and most are fried they were good but was just a totally different experience than I was looking for. Disco beat but quiet enough to talk
Relaxing Chicago River View
We loved the cocktails and appetizers at Rebar. They were very accommodating as we ordered more than could fit on the table they brought over another table. The tallegio pizza with truffle and honey was a delight. The macarons dessert featured a peppermint cookie we loved. The white bean hummus was served with both pizza and veggie strips. The toasted sesame seeds was a nice accompaniment.

Great food and drinks..breathtaking view of downtown chicago..waitress very attentive but not to a point of annoying...
It was a really nice place. The service was Outstanding! The View was breathe taking... The food was good. But make sure you take someone with you to enjoy it all. Not a real place to meet anyone new.
Overlooking the river, wow what a view if the city. Great small plates and nice drin menu. Nice place for lunch or cocktails with a great city and river view.

Drinks are unique and amazing. Went with a group of 5 and we all loved our drinks! However they are a bit pricey. I went on a Thursday evening and it was not busy at all.
Great drinks and service
I reserved a table for two for drinks. We received a great table by the window with views of the river. A great spot to watch the boats along the chicago river. Service was excellent and so were the drinks. The only issue we had is that we were seated next to a wedding party that became a little more noisey. I would definitely go back here for drinks again and ask to be seated away from large groups. This is definitely the spot to go for drinks with a nice view. The drinks are pricey and glasses not full but something we expected.

Only went for drinks not food, but would recommend it. Comfortable seating and nice views.
I took a friend here for her birthday, and we spent about $120 for three drinks, an appetizer, and a flatbread. The food and drinks were good, but not good enough to warrant the pricetag. Cocktails were $18 each, and I think I saw one that was $32. The cocktails were no better than other restaurants/bars that have a specialty cocktail program and don't charge $18 a drink. Overall, it wasn't too crowded, but we were here on a weeknight.
