Excellent service, near-impeccable timing on the pacing of dishes for our group of five. Service staff were present but not overbearing, and the food was wonderful. Highly recommended.

Andy was amazing as were his colleagues. We came for the mussels which were not on the menu due to the holiday but they magically appeared at our table. Thank you Andy! Our water glasses were never empty, the old fashions were delish, burgers, vermicelli, and espresso martinis made for a perfect evening!

At the suggestion of my son & his fiance we stopped by Funkenhausen to try their Restaurant Week menu. The appetizers were just okay. Kale salad is kale salad and the Big Pretzel was underwhelming. The 2nd course dishes were much better. The Spaetzle Cacio & Pepe was very good and my Knackwurst was quite good. The main courses were the best of the night. I had the Pork Loin Schnitzel and my wife had the Zucchini Schnitzel. The breading on the Zucchini Schnitzel was very light and honestly, if I saw this dish on the menu I would have taken a pass. I am glad that Funkenhausen offered this as part of their Restaurant Week Menu. The only quibble we had was with the wine pairings. The wines paired with our meals were execellent, but if you are going to offer a wine pairing with the meal, then by all means make certain that you offer a glass of wine with each dish. Slipping in a glass of milk stout with dessert is lame, especially if you don't drink beer or don't care for milk stout. Fortunately, we were able to give our milk stouts to the couple sitting next to us, otherwise, it would have gone to waste. Next time offer a wine pairing or a beer pairing for the entire menu.

Wonderful small place that is owned and run by a husband/wife Team. I love that the owners were present and serving us. You can tell that they take pride in their restaurant. The food was fantastic! Wine options are available but there are no cocktails, which threw us for a loop. Overall, I’d absolutely recommend Goosefoot to anyone enjoys fine dining.

I had such a good time with a friend at Kumiko. We were obsessed with the veggie potato salad and the cocktails were all really amazing (esp. the sea flower). We chatted for 3 hours straight and it was def the highlight of my week. The entrance was really hard to find, but it served a good atmosphere.

We should go here more. Food is inventive and all the dishes were excellent. They have a great pastry chef as well. The decor is classic prairie style and the setting in the middle of Lincoln Park is awesome. Request a table by the window for a great view of the Chicago skyline.

My husband and I visited for the restaurant week menu during lunch. Which can be pretty busy, however everything was up to part. We were served full plate’s… nothing lacked. Our server was enjoyable and extremely helpful. We will definitely be back soon for dinner.
