I had a late lunch at Octane after it was recommended by a client. The menu was pretty expansive and had a good range of seemingly flavorful dishes. I ordered the Twisted Mac n' Cheese, which comes with chicken, along with an almond creme soda. The drink was really good - if you like creme soda, you'll very likely enjoy... More

Great food, very uptown kind of feel. I recommend making reservations as it does fill up fast when there is a concert in town. The BMO Harris Center is within walking distance and there is a parking garage 1/2 a block away.

Octane has outstanding food selection in a hip artsy setting. Friendly staff, but a bit slow during lunch rush, but a great evening place to take a date or friend. They also have a great beer section.

We walked in, by chance, before a show at the Coranado Theater with 45 minutes to eat. We were seated immediately and everyone was wonderful. The server Josh was really personable and great at his job. The food was amazing. Everything was fresh and tasted like it had been prepared with passion for food. The burger my boyfriend got had...

We have been visiting Octane for several years and have enjoyed our selections. We have sampled a wide variety of the menu and its nice to see the menu change over the years with new additions. The Saturday brunch is yummy and the service is generally spot on. Thumbs up!

Great little restaurant only two blocks from the Coronado theater and the BMO Center so a perfect location to get a creative tasty meal before a concert or sports event. Their flank steak and chocolate nachos are my go to choices. Sean at the door and Josh at the table make sure you have a great experience and are on... More
