From start to finish Bistro 45 got it right! We were there celebrating our elopement and were met with so much love. I had the rack of lamb which was seasoned to perfection (I'm a picky Chicago foodie and I know good food) and cooked the perfect medium. My partner ordered the mussels and stated that she wanted sop up the broth because of its yummy goodness. We also had wine and dessert which was comped once we mentioned our nuptials. Allen, our waiter never missed a beat. He even introduced us to the owner on the way out who graciously invited us to return. Guess what? We will!!!
Cozy, Warm And Fun!! A Great Atmosphere And Location. A Special Place In My Heart. I've been there for romantic dates, and after a hard week with some grilled shrimps and linguine and a scotch on the rocks, and even for a few Super Bowls hanging out in the bar area. I will never turn down an opportunity to go there!!P.S. They filmed "Father Of The Bride" there with Steve Martin...:-)
My family went out to celebrate my wife's birthday recently at Bistro 45.  We simply looked up the restaurant and easily made online reservation, all through Yelp, within 30 minutes prior to our arrival to the restaurant.   We were greeted with a friendly smile and immediately were sat down after one of the staff verified our reservation.   For dinner, we had the mussels and clams, though they were out of the clams, and the calamari for appetizers and then to the main dishes - chicken pizza for the kids, some steak for my wife which was perfectly cooked and my devil chicken that is cooked at 800 degrees! The food was amazing but what really moved us was the level of attentiveness and the gracefulness of the waiters as they were helping us pick our food for the night.   We started with some cocktails, but we ordered the wine that the waiter recommended to go with our chicken and steak.  Their wine list is extensive and expensive, but the waiter picked out an excellent tasting wine at around $80.   They also knew what my children wanted even before we placed the order, as they were listening and bringing us immediately the "wish list" of food that my children wanted to have.   Again, I simply can't say enough for the amazing people that work here and of course, the food was great too.  What was surprising was that the restaurant followed up with us after a few days to ensure that our experience was great.   If you ever have a special occasion to celebrate, I would definitely recommend this place.  Things just can't go wrong here! I will definitely be back!!!
