Casual dining with great food, great wine and drink choices, and excellent service!!! Four of us sat outside in the back for an early dinner. Great server explained the approach with everything from starters to medium to large shareable plates as well as some mains. We chose to share everything and it was worth it. Great charcuterie to start followed... More

Lovely staff - helpful and attentive. Great little patio in back - especially great if you don't have a reservation! My son picked this place for the charcuterie, and I believe he was happy! He had schweinkopf with pickled asparagus and sage;beef tongue pastrami with candied coffee bean and sauerkraut; and the duck rillettes (shredded duck). My wife and I... More

An imaginative menu which is executed with skill. The cocktails are varied and service is very good. Not much room for all the custom they have but a good vibe and ambiance.

We just stopped for a drink and were very excited by the wine- beer-and drinks offered. Here is a menu of cheeses and charcuterie that are varied and just creative. The menu may be small but very ambitious and cohesive,as we had to try the cheese and the in house made oatmeal bread blew our taste buds away.

We visited on a Friday night - the place was busy but we never felt neglected. My husband and I split the duck liver mousse, the gravlax, the polenta and mushroom, and the wienerschnitzel. All of them were truly delicious and the house made bread was great. They have a great selection of beers and wines and the cocktail menu... More

We almost couldn't find this place because the front is so nondescript. Inside the atmosphere was a combination of rustic and urbane. Understated but composed, with an eclectic soundtrack. From the time we called ahead to hold our reservation because we were running late, the service was ultra friendly and helpful, yet unobtrusive. The food (which I'm told features a... More

This is a restaurant with a personality. A hole-in-the-wall with outside dining (weather depending), Table, Donkey and Stick, offers a limited menu that is high on originality, quality, and taste. The establishment is as renowned for its wide range of unique alcoholic beverages as for its limited menu of food items. Originality reigns when it comes to their food offerings... More

From the moment we walked in the staff was so welcoming. Reminds me of so many great Chicago restaurants with that neighborhood feel. B Great drink menu and wine and beer lists. That's just the start...food is so fantastic! You could easily do small plates and appetizers and then enjoy dessert. We did small plates, appetizers and entree. No room... More

If you're visiting Chicago, you wouldn't just stroll by Table, Donkey and Stick and walk in. The restaurant is located in an unassuming street front building, but once inside, it has a nice feel. Not a large restaurant, there are two large shared tables, several twosome tables and a nice patio in back with a fire pit. The cuisine is... More
