I read some of the negative reviews on TripAdvisor and couldn't understand why because our experience was topnotch. Yes, you have to prepay, and yes, it's expensive... but we have come to expect that from all Michelin 3-star restaurants. The entrance was very nondescript, but...More

Had the full tasting menu with an excellent wine pairing. Plan to spend several hours for an absolute sensory overload! Dark chocolate sauce over rare prime steak slice with a superb cab. Book early, reservations needed a few months in advance.

Expensive but yes it's a lifetime experience. It's a dinner "show" but it's more of an art at its highest degustatoty level. Will highly recommend and nobody should miss it. Do it at least once in your life!!!

Alinea is not your everyday type of establishment and that's what makes it so special. Each course is a unique and individual experience.

Alinea is not just for foodies. It is for foodies who want a delicious, unique, dining experience. Far from a shrine it is a great time with some of the best dishes you will ever have.

Flew to Chicago just to go to this restaurant; bottom-line, worth it! I'm not going to lie and say every dish was better than the next, but I had several "this is the best X I've ever had" and it clearly raised the bar compared...More
