Good food friendly service comfortable free wifi. Welcoming little spot from the cold outside. Try the egg white frittata. Yum. 16.58 not including tip with coffee so I suppose that's not cheap but really enjoyed it.More

We came to the bar for a late night snack and drinks. The bar was not crowded for a Friday night. Instruments were set up for live music that never played. The service was slow, and the bartender wasn't paying attention to her patrons. One...More

I have eaten both lunch and dinner at this restaurant in the past few days. Each time, the staff were attentive, and the food and drinks prompt. Reasonable prices too. They obviously work on satisfying their guests.

Viand Bar is a real good place to eat dinner at a reasonable price. I don't think it was their intention to compete with the "high end" locations but rather provide good food, nice atmosphere and good service. They accomplish all 3 of these. Put...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
