Was there for a NYE dinner with a large group. They were very accommodating of our shenanigans, and the service was very friendly. The mussels and crab cakes are great. Average prices (there were of course no specials on NYE....) Very reliable, will definitely go back.

This is one of my favorite places in Bucktown, for dinner or lunch! The food is gourmet but very reasonably priced. I love the 1/2 price wine specials and the patio is perfect on a warm evening, tucked back off the street just enough but not too far that you miss the people watching.

Feast has been good to us ever since they were at their old location around the corner (long time ago). A good solid performer overall, and consistent. Been here about a dozen times. They always seem to find a place for you no matter how busy they are (unlike countless other similar places). The food is very good and isn't unreasonably expensive. The wine is great, they have a 3rd Wednesday of the month wine tasting -so you know they're paying attention. I love the location near the Cynthia Rowley boutique and all that Bucktown action. They have valet parking on weekends if you don't want to deal.

Pros: Good table, good service and good food

Cons: Bustling Wicker Park can be a parking challenge, but valet!

I have lived in Bucktown for almost 4 years so we have lived about 3 blocks away from Feast. Unfortunately I only started going there this past year. Big mistake. Every time I have been to Feast the food has been consitently great! From the burger, to the chicken skewers to many more dishes then I can type here, we have never been disappointed. My only complaint is that the service, although quick, can be a bit impersonal, borderline unfriendly, however, what Feast may lack in service they make up for it in quality and consistency in food, after all, we don't always need to bond with our server to enjoy our meals thats what good company is for :)

Feast is a pretty populr restaurant in Wicker Park right off the Damen blue line stop. It is comfortable and has reliably good food. The crowd can be a little precious at times, think trendy/yuppy, but the place can always be depended upon to deliver good food and good service. And the neighborhood can't be beat on any night of the week.

I went here with some friends and we had been told it's BYO. So we bring a few bottles. Some person answered their phone telling us "you'll be fine" when we inquired if the corking fee was per bottle or per table. When we got to the restaurant the waitress informed us it was indeed "per bottle". Party of 6, she did not pour a SINGLE glass for us, charged us $30 for uncorking 2 (one was a screw off top) and tacked on gratuity!!!!!! She did not apologize for whomever answered their phone telling us "OH YOU'LL BE FINE". The food was cold and the service was virtually non-exsistent. But the corking fee and gratuity was certainly something she saw to.

Food here is phenomenal - breakfast, lunch or dinner. only downside is service is a little suspect but always friendly. Atmosphere is great - especially outside in summer. Some of the best food in all of wicker park / bucktown and maybe even chicago!

Considering I went to Feast on a recommendation, I must say I was very disappointed by my experience. It was very average food and I didn't feel like it was worth the amount of money that I paid for it. The crabcakes was the only good item I ate, but were a little on the cold side (felt like the crabcakes been pre-prepared and just microwaved before serving).

I have lived down the street from Feast for the past 2 years and finally tried it this past week. The reason why we had never gone in was because the food for dinner always looked a little too fancy and expensive for our taste. However, it was my friends bday so we went over for lunch. Lunch was still a little pricey but WELL worth it. I got the chicken sandwich and my friend got the greek salad, chicken skewer plate. Both were extremely yummy. I can't believe that I have lived so close and never gave feast a shot. My ONLY complaint was that the service was PAINFULLY slow. We waited 20 mins for the check before we decided to walk up to the front to find our server and pay. Good food, slow service, but worth checking out.

We received poor customer service for Sunday brunch on 5/27. Wait staff was very unattentive. After taking our order, they did not return to our table until it was time to deliver the bill.

I had a meeting in the Wicker Park area and bumped into an old friend right across the street from Feast. After 10 minutes we walked in, last Friday night, and were greeted as if we were the super VIP's. I've never been a VIP but I'm sure that what it's like. We sat at the bar and had the best food and wine I've had since I left home (CA). Everyone is knowledgeable and friendly. Its a shame I don't get to Wicker Park more often. Highly Recommended!

I came here for brunch on a friend's suggestion, and it was easily the worst recommendation I have ever been given ever. The food here is absolute rubbish. Aside from our meals being cold (inexcusable), everything was just plain unappetizing. My "omelette" consisted of a sponge like disc, folded over top of cold and uncooked veggies. The list could go on: burnt english muffin, hard poached eggs, a staff that flat out neglected us (couldn't even get a coffee refill).

Yes, this place isn't known for breakfast, but just so you know, never even think of coming here. Needless to say, I won't be taking suggestions from Brent anymore.

In Chicago to celebrate teenage daughter's B-day and stopped here for lunch while shopping. Busy, Busy, Busy - so ate at the bar. No worries here. Had a great meal of Eggs Portifino (?), daughter had potato skins with eggs, friend had open face tuna melt. All were wonderful. Girls loved it so much, returned the next morning for breakfast on way out to airport. Pancakes to die for and perfect crispy bacon! Spicey Bloody Mary - YUM!

This has to be the best place in Chicago to start of Saturday morning, its become our ritual. The bloody marys are THE BEST IN CHICAGO, believe me weve tried them everywhere. Our favorite spot to eat and start our day is the bar where our bartender/waiter knows our names and treats us like we were long time friends. Once we walk in he makes us our drinks without asking. Hes GREAT! Not to mention the AWSOME food, its unreal. The staff is great; food is excellent along with fresh atmosphere and music.

Pros: VALET, Service food and street parking(if your lucky)

Cons: NONE AT THIS TIME:)

The food here is wonderful! Everything from the burgers to the halibut has exceeded my expectations. The staff is attentive; I will say that some servers are better than others (Beth is great). The patio is charming on a nice evening, and they have fabulous wine specials on Mondays and Tuesdays. If you are up for great food and good service, you should give it a try!

Boo! to the folks who think this isn't as good as everyone says. I first went to Feast 2 years ago and have been back many times. I've taken advantage of the 1/2-price bottle of wine and eaten a number of items on the menu. Everything I've had was consistently good. This is WAY better than the over-priced, over-hyped Meritage down the street! If it wasn't great the first time, I encourage you to give it another chance!

One of our fav local spots! The Tortilla Soup, Clams & Crabcakes are to die for....
The BBQ Salmon, Glazed Porkchop & Stuffed Chicken Breast are divine!! The Creme Brulee is superb.... and 1/2 price bottle of wine is a great deal for an excellent dinner out in the city!!!

Feast did not live up to most of the glowing reviews I had read before making reservations. I arrived with friend at 9:00 on a weeknight. Service was some of the worst I've experienced in the city. Our waiter was abrupt, unfriendly, and made it clear that we were his last table and that he wanted us out the door asap. Tried several times to take both of our plates while we were clearly still eating. As if that wasn't bad enough, the food was uninspired for the price. I will never go back.

Feast is an incredible place... offering great food, ambiance and value. I am constantly taking friends to lunch and dinner there. The weekend brunch can't be beat either. As if a great brunch isn't enough, the valet parking is free!

A friend of mine lives in Bucktown. Everytime I visit she jokes that this is the only place I'll eat. There are several great places to eat in the area, but for brunch, Feast is it. The breakfast potato skins and the eggs benedict are fantastic. I'll be back!

I tried this place for the first time a few Sundays ago. The mimosas were some of the freshest I have had, and it was diffucult to choose between all of the interesting menu items. I finally decided on eggs portabello, and I was not disappointed. This is a place I would definitely like to take someone who was visiting. Cute, cozy, and fabulous food!

I came here with a group of 10 or so people, and found the service to be very adept. The hosts were friendly and our waiter was great--very efficient and amiable without hovering or rushing. I enjoyed the food--an eclectic menu with spicy Southwestern undertones. Nice atmosphere and comfortable patio.
