Adorn Bar & Restaurant
A very pleasant experience at the new Adorn Restaurant in the newly remodeled Four Seasons. Food and Service were excellent as to be expected at the Four Seasons.
Beautiful new contemporary space in the Four Seasons Hotel. Chef Jonathan Sawyer's menu is much different from the the previous Allium concept. Really good Caesar salad, gnocchi and steak. Knowledgeable service and a decent wine list. Bar seating will soon be available to make the space even more welcoming.
Outstanding service and meal! Thank you Adorn for making this a special night!
I wasn't planning on going to Adorn but thought I would check it out when I saw they had an opening at 7:30 on a Friday night, I am so happy I did. The food was amazing and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our night, as well as our fellow diners, was a steller experience.
The room is beautiful, elegant, and inviting. The crowd was diverse and the opposite of stuffy. My partner and I had such a great time people watching that we stayed after dessert to have another drink.
Adorn was a great experience! I can not remember having such a good dining EXPERIENCE in the "time of covid". Thank you to all the staff, from the hostesses,to the manager and waitstaff especially Stacy and Lucien for a great night!!! I plan on returning soon! What a great addition to the neighborhood!
For years have enjoyed dining and staying at the Four Seasons Chicago. We heard about the renovation months ago and were excited to see it in person. When we arrived we could not believe the stunning and beautiful updated version. We were very excited to experience Adorn Bar & Restaurant as it was highly recommended by local newspapers and entertainment critics. We also knew that Chef Sawyer’s is a James Beard award recipient so we were looking forward to experiencing some amazing food which we did. We had a variety of tastes gnocchi, Caesar salad,
salt baked halibut (truly the best we have ever tasted) and an amazing bistro steak. We were not disappointed in any of the items we ordered.
The cocktails in the beautiful and modern/chic lobby bar area were perfectly done. The atmosphere was comfortable and well appointed with a contemporary feel without being stark and antiseptic. The bar itself is amazing just to look at. It’s a great space to stop by for a cocktail and small bites which are offered on the menu or go all out for the full dining experience.
With all of that said no dining experience no matter how great the food can be successful without a great host/hostess, bartender, and wait staff. Everyone we dealt with that evening went above and beyond to create a fantastic experience for us! Highly recommend!!!
Kibbytare, Thank you so much for your very detailed review of Adorn! We are so happy to hear that you love the new restaurant space, Chef Sawyers food, our cocktails, and the service team! We are equally excited about our new restaurant space & our food/drinks! We look forward to welcoming you back to Adorn very soon for another fantastic dining experience! Cheers, William Mitchell General Manager
I am not impressed. Maybe I’m too used to the old venue.
Service was lovely (!) and on point. No shortcoming there.
Menu was a mix of small bites and casual fare. Difficult to match up small bite with casual item to build a starter and entree.
Friends used to host parties here. I can’t see this venue being conducive to that for those of us in the neighborhood. Just good for quick bite.
Food was good, but very petite portions. One of my table mates sent a burger back because cheese was not melted. Pandemic kitchens seem to all not be at their best.
The old bar area disappeared (not just temporarily it seems) so a pre-dinner or post-dinner drink not going to happen.
I love the Four Seasons but this renovation feels cold and lacking. The restaurant echoes that feeling, for me. Others might disagree.
the career of such a notable chef from my hometown. Needless to say, I was excited to hear that he was bringing his talents to Chicago, and Saturday night my wife and I visited for an anniversary dinner.
First off, the service was exceptional. We have been cautious due to covid, and no restaurant has made us feel as safe as this one. Despite the distance, there was no lack of warmth from the staff. Everyone seemed genuinely excited to assist us from the moment we entered until the moment we left.
On to the food, there's really not much to say other than it's phenomenal. Chef Sawyer's elevated and technique-focused takes on comfort food are a little bit subversive for the posh Four Seasons space, but that makes it even better. The 3-day process to create the chicken wings comes through from the first bite, and the truffle poutine is as good as poutine gets.
Being a steak enthusiast, I was please to find the harder-to-find Picanha cut on the menu. It was butchered, cooked, and presented beautifully. My wife's Halibut was rich, sweet, flaky perfection.
It's a challenging time to be opening a restaurant, but if you want a safe place to get out and enjoy the work of an incredible chef and team, you can't go wrong picking here.
We had the most wonderful experience at the brand new Adorn restaurant. The staff was so attentive and accommodating to every last detail during our meal. The overall ambiance is BEAUTIFUL, drinks and food were top notch, and customer service was A+ all around. This place is a must go to!!!
So impressed with the knowledgeable and friendly staff. The ambience and energy of the restaurant was so refreshing and lively.
Thank you so much for the great feedback about the Adorn Service Team! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the energy of the new restaurant, we are all loving it too! Cheers, William Mitchell General Manager
I’ll be interest to go back in a few months to see how things have developed. Worth a try but go in knowing this has opened during COVID and probably isn’t in its final form.
Felt very safe and comfortable here from a Covid standpoint. The staff and service was outstanding. Bebe was our server and she explained the new menu to us and had the bartenders mix up a spirit free drink for me. The bar has Seedlip which I’ve been searching the city for! The food was amazing as well - some of the highlights included the bread and candle service, poutine, wings, and tomato tartlet. Will be going back as soon as possible to try out the breakfast and lunch menus.
Service was lacking at best. There were three of us and each of our orders came 10-15 minutes apart. We should have all been served at the same time. Then our server messed up our bill big time. He charged us $90 more than the bill should have been. When we brought it to his attention he argued with us. When he brought back the corrected checks, they had been charged to someone(s) elses credit cards. Very bad for a four star restaurant. This is the second time we have been since they reopened. The first time the service was flawless. This time horrible. The first time we told many of our friend about the restaurant. This time I would not reccomend. I will not be back in the near future.
EdwardIII, I am terribly sorry to hear that you had a poor experience with the timing of your meal and during the payment process. I can assure you that we have taken the necessary steps to correct these issues moving forward. I hope that we will have the opportunity to show you a vastly improved dining experience in the near future! King regards, William Mitchell General Manager
We are so happy that the Four Seasons has reopened. The renovation is gorgeous and the food was fabulous. There were four of us and we shared a bunch of items. Standouts were the tomato tartlet and the chicken wings. The wings are apparently a specialty of the chef and were amazing. (btw I really don't like wings) They seem to be handling Covid restricitons very well and we really enjoyed our evening. Of course the service was perfect!
TimC, Thank you so much for your great review of Adorn! We greatly appreciate the kind words and are ecstatic to hear how much you enjoyed Chef Jonathon's food. We are very happy to know you were pleased with our attention to COVID precautions, our guest's safety & comfort are our top priority Best, William Mitchell General Manager
Loved everything but have the chicken wings!
Amazing service and fantastic menu. Server recommended cocktails that were so good. Nice atmosphere - will be back
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our food, cocktails, & service! Thank you for the great words about Adorn, we truly appreciate your feedback! We can't wait to welcome you back to Adorn! William Mitchell General Manager
We had an overall excellent experience at Adorn. The newly renovated bar and seating areas were stunning and made us feel like we were being swept into a glamorous Tomorrowland as we were brought to our seats—safely spread out with more than enough room to comply with COVID guidelines. All of the cocktails had a fresh take on old classics and the wine list was impressive, ready to please those of all palates. As for the food, would definitely recommend the Crispy Confit of Chicken Wings and the Leche de Tigre—two perfect starters to share with a uniquely balanced flavor profile. The Picanha Bistro Steak was also excellent for an entre. However, the best part of this experience had to be the Chocolate Pot de Crème we had for dessert paired with an espresso martini made to perfection. Overall, everything we tasted was excellent and you truly cannot beat the ambiance. Can’t wait to come back again and try the rest of the menu!
I’ve been twice this week. Incredible food - I recommend everything but the bread and wings are to die for!!! I care about sourcing and the new chef does too. Can’t wait to go back.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary. The staff was so happy for us. We had delicious starters and steak. We had a very special time and everyone there made it a beautiful memory for us. Our sincere thanks to all of you. The remodeling is so beautiful
DeiraC, Thank you very much for your kind words, we are elated to hear that you enjoyed your Anniversary dinner at Adorn! Best, William Mitchell General Manager
It was my birthday celebration and Chef Sawer and his team did not disappoint. So glad The Four Seasons brought him on board. We had a beautiful bottle of wine, I had Oysters and my husband had the filet. The filet was the best I have tasted in decades!
Be sure to order the candle! It’s underpriced and I’m figuring out when I can come back and have this again soon!!!
A must-do in Chicago! The ambiance was a bit sterile but I’m sure that’s due to Covid. But the place was clean and the service was amazing!
Wonderful experience overall. Amazing service and outstanding food - Chef Jonathon Sawyer is certainly rising star and this place will be impossible to get a reservation at when COVID is done. Tuna tartare maybe the best we’ve had anywhere.
My husband & I moved to Chicago from Cleveland years ago, and when we heard Chef Sawyer was opening up a restaurant in Chicago, we knew we needed to be one of the first to dine because we missed his wings & more. We had dinner on the first night of opening at Adorn - October 1, 2020. Adorn does not disappoint! Sawyer's signature dishes have been "adorned" to an elevated state. The wings! The frites! The steak! The fried chicken! And some new favorites we discovered tonight! All dishes were served in a very timely manner, even on opening night. Service was spectacular - as one "expects" from the Four Seasons. Highly recommend, Adorn. Highly recommend!
