The atmosphere was great - beautiful lighting and palms scattered throughout. The service was great, too. The food was pretty run-of-the-mill. I had the Tortilla Soup which was really spicy and I also had the Southwest Chicken Salad, which was also spicy. I was sweating...More

The interior of this establishment is sleek, modern and clean, which is very appealing. The service was great, but we were there on a weekend and it was for the most part empty as it is located in the business district. They advertise that they...More

The atmosphere is conducive to a business meeting (tables spaced well, high ceilings, etc.) But I was thoroughly unimpressed with the food. I had the schezwan stir fry and it was swimming in mediocre sauce. One of my companions had a drab cobb salad, the...More

Came here for some drinks. Tried to sit outside but got some attitude then we eventually got to sit there and give them our money. Good drink choices and nice please to talk. Not too loud.

Come here for work lunches all the time. Modern American food with a good tap list. Any of the apps/sandwiches I have had have been great. Price is consistent with the area, the place is large, and the staff is always very good.

Always busy during the week with the after-work scene but I didn't expect such delicious food. We went in the weekend so it was slow. The prime rib sliders were huge and perfectly prepared with arugula, sliced beef and a soft bun and jus. The...More

We have visited Primebar twice on business for lunch. While the restaurant draws mixed reviews on this site, one important fact even in the negative accounts is that it is busy - a testament that actually a lot of people like the place. Primebar is,...More

Nice atmosphere. Nice location. Not bad value but food was just ok. Not typical for Chicago so I was surprised. Our visit was 12/26 at 5pm so maybe we were just too early.
