We were here last weekend for dinner. The service is a bit slow and there was a small mess up with the order but it was ok. The food was pretty good taste wise but the items were overpriced and the quantity was way too… ||| I am a regular at this restaurant and could not love it more! The servers are incredibly kind, friendly and just great people. The food is my favorite in all of Chicago–always such a warm, hearty meal. My one-year-old and three-year-old children also adore this…
