Table Donkey and Stick
Food was delicious, service was great, overall experience was incredible!
Most of the food was delicious. Our salad was just ok. Service was excellent, but it's a little expensive for what you get
I loved the food and the ambiance but we had to wait 45 minutes for a table we had made reservations for. The host informed us we were “just waiting on the current people to leave.” The restaurant did nothing to hurry the table as my party grew increasingly agitated as we had to stand in the small hallway for 45 minutes waiting for the table. Besides a few “thanks for your patience” comments there was nothing done to address the situation.
Excellent food and service with an interesting (cozy) atmosphere. Will be back.
AMAZING MEAL as always took care of all gluten-allergy concerns & excited to go back!
Came here after reading a Chicago Tribune article saying they had the best burger in town and wow Bethany wow it was amazing. Also had the duck and a charcuterie plate. Best food and great service.
We were hugely disappointed with our first time experience and embarrassed as we hosted two of our close friends. While the ambiance and set up were lovely, the value for this entire experience was absolutely outrageous. The portion sizes are insulting and the price tag is really laughable. The table service was certainly lacking and not aligned with the high end prices. The cutlery was handed out to us rather than nicely presented and the waiter almost poked my eye out as he was turning with the cutlery from out person to another - he was standing I was seated - it was really ridiculous. To say the least, we left disappointed and angry. Not going back. Donkey and Stick should be embarrassed about their serving sizes and review their pricing.
Cosy neighborhood restaurant with interesting food and good service.
Had the Brussels sprouts, burger and char, all excellent! Very cozy spot!
I liked the food. I had counter seating. I would not recommend counter seating because i spent most of my time looking at one of the chef’s behind and it looked more like a washing station. But the food was interesting and plenty of vegetable options for a low- meat person like myself.
Food and drinks were all good. The cheese board was very good, if small. Is a good neighborhood spot for an easy dinner out.
Very intimate space. Pricier than your average. Highly, highly recommend the duck liver mousse and getting a cheese & charcuterie board.
Excellent food and service!
This has been one of our "go to" places for several years. They never disappoint!
Great food, great experience.
We had a great time catching up over wine and charcuterie! Service was great as always.
Table Donkey and Stick is probably my favorite place to eat in Chicago. Their menu is always superb. The service is impeccable.
Always great food and service!
Food, ambiance and service was amazing! Will definitely be back!!
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in friends home. I definitely would return to try the bratwurst.
The potato latkas was amazing and the smoked whitefish was super savory. The table was split on the steak – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. It was a great choice for my birthday, as they brought out a flight of dessert which made us feel special.
Great restaurant in every way.
Great charcuterie. Sat outside on patio on beautiful September evening. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.
Great price and great food! We went to the Pop up Dinner they have going on every Monday night and shared everything. Food was very reasonably priced and delicious. Great wine as well. Will be going back to sit on the patio with friends. Staff was super friendly and music was great. :-)
Great food, great wine, excellent waiter! Will definitely go back again.
I’ve dined here several times and it’s always a great experience. My only criticism this past time was in regards to seating preference/priority for reservations vs walk ins. I would expect that if I’m making a reservation, i would have preference of table over walk ins or seat me while I’m waiting for my date to arrive.
The food was late so they offered dessert on the house.
Really great place. Food and beers/drinks were exceptional. The back patio is really nice on a summer evening.
Extremely loud in the back dining area, more loud than is acceptable. Food is incredible and service is great.
Warm casual setting, but a touch unrefined. Good neighborhood destination with unusual Alpine-referenced menu. Each dish offered a unique flavor and while quantities were not over-generous, we shared nearly all of the dishes. Good bar menu as well. There appeared to be a nice garden and a small sidewalk seating area. Recommended.
This is one of the more inventive restaurants on the Chicago dining scene. Menu changes frequently, using what is currently fresh, and they aren't afraid to try unique/interesting ingredients in their dishes, which always seem to work so well with the dish. Wine list is always great, and if you aren't certain what you want with your meal, Matt is always spot on with his recommendations. Definitely a do not miss restaurant.
This is our "go to" place! A hidden gem that never disappoints. Super food and fantastic service. We highly recommend TDandS.
Small place with very limited space between tables. To be honest, decor and ambiance seem a little dingy, and restrooms have moldy/stale odor. Food was overall a 3. Appetizers were great. Loved the charcuterie board with the cold meats and duck liver mousse. However, the small plates were very salty and main dishes (we had the salmon and pork) were average. Desserts were disappointing.
We stopped in for a drink and appetizer. Had a charcuterie board recommended by the chef. Great food, cool environment.
“Meh” service paired with a 50 min wait for three burgers for our group equals something I’ll never write home about. I read great reviews of the burger and I would rather eat at Culver’s. WAY better burgers elsewhere in Chicago with wait times that don’t equal almost an hour. Byeeee Felicia.
Meh, perhaps we’re not hip enough. This is basically a hole in the wall neighborhood spot with 4* prices. Even the menus (paper) were dirty and worn. We weren’t crazy about our only view of the bank of mismatched restaurant stainless fridges outside (and through a dirty window). Definitely wouldn’t go back.
The food is delicious and the staff is great. Get the sunflower bread—it is delicious! When the weather is right, the back patio is a cozy place to dine as well!
Great restaurant with a casual vibe and upscale food. Most everything we ate was delicious and the staff was very kind and responsive. Small food & drink menu's but great selections.
Table Donkey Stick has been winning us over -- the summer menu is just fantastic. There's nothing bad on the menu and the strawberry dumpling dessert special is truly spectacular. I also appreciate that they'll make me mocktails when I can't drink.
Everything was amazing and the staff was extremely helpful.
