Bordeaux Lounge by Turquoise
AMAZING service and I truly cannot stress how delicious the food was. We ended up drinking more than expected so we were rather full (really recommend the white blend) but for the table we ordered the Mezze platter - holy cow we will be BACK!
Nice little quiet intimate date night spot.
I was frustrated when we arrived as I booked my reservation at Bordeaux Wine Bar and when we arrived we were told that was closed and we had to eat at Turquoise which has a completely different menu. We stayed but felt like it was a bait and switch. The service was a bit slow, but otherwise had good wine and apps.
Same mediocre food as Turquoise, and hard to believe, service was worse. With all the great restaurants in town, no need to go back.
We enjoyed the food and setting. We especially loved the love music!
Went to Bordeaux Lounge with my wife for Valentines day. Unfortunately they were completely under prepared for a large crowd. The restaurant was packed, but they had 2 servers for about 25 tables, which did not bode well for any kind of good service. Took about 15 minutes to get water and our drink order taken. With that the server forgot one drink order, which arrived in 30 minutes. Food was stale and felt like it sat in the window for some time. With Chicago being a food mecca, I cannot recommend Bordeaux on both food and service to anyone.
We had a very nice Valentine’s Day dinner
While the food was good, the service was very bad. We waited 30 minutes before we were even greeted by a waiter to take a drink order. It took another 30 minutes for the bottle of wine to come. After the waiter took our order, we never saw him again. We had to ask the bus boy for to go boxes and the check, but even then I had to walk my own check up to the bar to pay. Pretty terrible.
While dinner was good service was very bad. They were either short staffed or very unattractive. We got the final bill before we got the desert. Dishes were not explained to us and came out in weird. Food tasted good but it was not worth the experience.
We had a wonderful New Years dinner at Bordeaux. The food is always excellent!
Lovely restaurant interesting cuisine great host Stephen & Ali
Hidden gem! There aren’t enough wine bars to begin with, so thank goodness for this spot. Prices are reasonable for the volume of food, bread and carrot hummus is given to start and wine selection is excellent. Great for a date or friends’ gathering.
There was a jazz band that was just lovely. The wine selection was good. The food was mostly great. The service however, was not good. We placed an order and were told to wait on ordering an entree. That would have been fine, but the waiter was completely frantic and nearly impossible to track down. Our first bottle of white wine was delivered without an ice bucket so it got warm. After watching the waiter blow past our table about 30 times at a frantic pace, I was able to flag him down to order more food. Turns out we were correct in how much food we wanted in the beginning, but we had to get aggressive to get the waiter’s attention. He took our food order but we were undecided about a new bottle of wine. Once we decided about wine, several attempts were made to flag our waiter down. We got our second round of food and we had no wine. We asked the food runner to send our waiter so we could order more wine, to no avail. We were nearly finished with our 2nd course by the time the waiter arrived to take our wine order. We decided on another bottle of white. At this point I asked for an ice bucket and he did oblige. Overall, it’s a lovely spot, but our waiter’s obvious stress and overwhelmed state did not allow for us to enjoy our meal and relax as I’m sure was intended.
the live music was the real highlight. the ambiance was nice and service slow but pleasant. i would recommend for wine and snacks.
The menu, the wine list all great. Staff attentive but a little scattered. Live musicladt nite too!!
Great service. Knowledgeable staff. Good value for wine tasting!
The food was wonderful and the wine selections available were very good. We will be back!
They / Steven provided excellent service and a fabulous wine list, my salmon was extremely salty and the only reason I did not give them 5 stars on the food.
The atmosphere is wonderful they had live music which was also an unexpected delightful surprise.
I'll go back.
Went for bday dinner. Wine list is excellent and would bring us back for sure. Food was okay. Id probably lean toward apps over entrees. But, like I said we would go back for the extensive wine list.
We picked Bordeaux on a whim with no idea of what we were walking into....the listing shows french, but there is a very strong Mediterranean selection. Everything we ordered was flavorful, lots to choose from, big portions and very well represented from a GF and Vegetarian selection. Service was great at the beginning but had a misstep after two large parties hit the restaurant. Overall we will certainly be in again.
