The hostess was courtesy & friendly.
The minestrone soup and the ravioli were delicious. The chocolate pudding was most pleasurable!
Server Jesus was professional and friendly, he made an excellent selection for the wine.
His assistant, Juan, professional and polite.
I would definitely dine again here!!!
Pelago is one of the best kept secrets in town. The food is truly outstanding, the service is second to none, and the ambience is perfect for a quiet conversation or romantic evening.
Everything was absolutely perfect for my mothers birthday. Frank go to the food to the ambience we couldn’t have asked for anything more thank you for making it such a special evening! We will be back again and again and again. This was not our first visit
We had a wonderful dinner
The concierge at Ritz Carlton recommended Pelago which was one block away from the hotel
It is not often we find staff, from head waiter to bus-boys, this well trained and attentive, a remarkable experience
Chef popped out of kitchen to make sure things were going smoothly and patrons happy
The risotto was perfectly prepared, consistency, flavor, seasonings. Many places overload salt, not this one
The rabbit was delicious, the sauce just right, flavorful, not ladled on
Through some waiter-water-magic, our Pelligrino was bottomless
High quality White linen table cloth and napkins (not sad polyester) and sprays of natural flowers lend to this memorable meal.
We will definitely return, and recommend to you
Outstanding service. Excellent food. I would recommend this place for a special evening or lunch
Service was impeccable. Warm, attentive service. Food delicious and the atmosphere very welcoming. Highly recommend it.
As always perfect service & excellent food
One of the very best restaurants in Chicago. It never disappoints and the service outstanding.
We have dined here several times and always look forward to returning. It is a treat to experience true old-world sophistication. The service is flawless and the food extraordinary. A true gastronomic temple.
Always a treat. Make you feel so welcome and excellent food.
A very fine restaurant with an incredible menu and chef
Poca gente por la hora y el día , pero todo el personal atento a atendernos !! muy bien
Great service, amazing food, great atmosphere.
Very good food, honest, elegant without being over the top. The pasta was perfectly cooked. The slight disappointment was their variation on a tiramisu. Not memorable, however it’s a good restaurant.
Spectacular food, wonderful service! Came here with some foodie gfs and we loved our meal and the experience. If I lived in Chicago, I’d eat my way through that menu and come back often. Beautiful wine selection too.
Outstanding and elegant restaurant with perfectly prepared food and attentive, top shelf service. Expensive but worth it. My only complaint is with the exorbitant pricing on the wine list. Excellent selection of high quality Italians but priced at over 3x retail which is ridiculous. Wine corkage policy is overly restrictive as well. Conclusion: Food, service and atmosphere great; do not understand their wine pricing philosophy. Will definitely return but will study the wine list personally before I order and not simply default to the (excellent) recommendations I received.
Our favorite place for our special occasions. Chef Mauro is a master cooking everything to perfection, especially his fish. The service is outstanding and he has the highest of standards with his staff. We always feel so welcomed and Chef Mauro absolutely spoils us.
This was the best night ever!!
We eat there often, the food is wonderful but the great thing about pelago is how welcoming they are. Every customer is treated like a much valued regular customer.
By far the friendliest staff and chef of any restaurant where we eat.
Service was appalling. Made to feel unwelcome.
The food, service and choices in wine were excellent. We always have the assortment of four homemade pastas as a starter. You cannot go wrong.
I highly recommend this trattoria.
The staff was incredible and very attentive. They explained everything well and made our experience memorable. My wife and I both enjoyed our dishes immensely. I had the mozzarella ball appetizer with an octopus risotto and my wife had the grilled octopus appetizer and the grilled lamb chops with fresh herbs. The food was fabulous. We didn’t have any of the pasta dishes on this visit, but I have before and their pasta is all freshly prepared and worth trying. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
One of the best restaurants I’ve been in Chicago. The food is extraordinary and the service outstanding. Everybody is really nice, in particular Alfredo.
Incredible service. Perfectly portioned melt-in-your-mouth pasta. Favorite hidden gem in Chicago.
Great truffle fettuccine. Perfect options, very attentive.
Fantastic! Everyone made the night wonderful!
Lovely evening from cocktails to desserts. Service on point but not hovering. Our Guests were experiencing Pelago for the first time, and we were all pleased with the outstanding food and beautiful wines & attentive service.
Disappointing. I really wanted to like the weak overpriced drinks, under cooked risotto, and toughest steaks in the city. Far too many other great options in Chicago to recommend this Pelago #neveragain.
Atmosphere was really classy, staff awkwardly loomed around like the villains in an action movie, the bread was on point tho.
Crisp and clean ambiance. Meal was great but outrageously overpriced. Server asked if we wanted another bottle of wine and 10 minutes after he served it was hovering over us to leave. So we left ... with a lot of expensive wine on the table. That was disappointing.
Sophisticated, classic modern ambiance. Attentive staff. Excellent Italian food.
Fantastic food, service and ambiance. Top restaurant.
Food was under cooked. Server didn’t get order correct. Drinks were over priced.
Thus was our first experience there, and we were impressed on all aspects. We look forward to our next dining experience there.
Pelago continues to amaze! The food is phenomenal and the team is as well. A not-to-miss!
Chef Mauro does an amazing job serving very authentic high quality Italian food
I highly recommend a visit to enjoy the food and ambiance!
Just a normal experience. Nothing extraordinary.
I have been so excited to meet an out of town friend here. To start with - we were seated in the front section of the restaurant - right by the hall to what I think was a hall to the kitchen. Not sure. I believe there was a door at the end of the hall to the alley - which was being opened constantly! This would send a huge blast of cold air into our area - and it was March in Chicago!!! It was FREEZING. I wonder why a restaurant which took such pains to mitigate the air from the front door -Enclosed awning front door plus an enclosed vestibule - would allow this. It honestly ruined the meal. On top of which - the food was just FINE. Good but not great - on a positive note - our waiter was lovely and very good - however, for the price I will not go back - especially because of the cold air. So disappointing.
Fantastic food and service in an elegant but relaxing environment. I will definitely return.
Pelago's food is out of this world. The service is almost too good. My friend and I had a 6 pm
reservation and there were not too many people there yet. We felt a little rushed at the beginning
and the staff is always coming over. As the evening got busier, it was a better. I think if they were
a little less attentive at the beginning it would be perfect. That being said, I would go again and the
food is spectacular.
Excellent service. Delicious food!!!
