Communal tables, shared plates - avec

Communal tables, shared plates - avec truly embodies its name (French for ""with""). The deep flavors and fresh ingredients attract crowds.

Too close for my comfort

The only thing that's good about this place is that it has an interesting menu. But it stops at that. Their version of communal dinning is outrageous. The table we were sat at would normally fit 6 people. However there was 10 of us and a child in a high-chair squished in there together. I have no problem sharing a table with others, however I would at least like enough room to move my arms around so I could cut up my... view more

I love this place!

Best food in the city! Get the dates and the pizza. Wine selection is wonderful! The day we went we waited for about an hour for a table but it was well worth it!

Didn't Live Up to the Hype.....

We heard this place was unreal - especially from reading the reviews on this website. The wine, cheeses and breads were excellent, but thats where it stopped. The food was just subpar. We ordered small plates and split a salmon dish and cauliflower crustini. The Salmon was undercooked and the crostini was unedible. The lamb small plate was pretty tasty. The waitstaff was excellent and the wine and beer menues... view more

Good Mix of People, Fresh Take on Traditional Dishes

I've only been here once, and I went as I saw it received rave reviews on Chicago Metromix. Earlier reviews are dead on when they say that you have to come prepared to wait, or, arrive relatively early. I came to dinner on a Sunday night at 7, was seated immediately, but I can tell you that not even ten minutes after we arrived, there was a mass of people waiting to be seated. The atmosphere is high energy, boistero... view more

Hands down, my favorite restaurant in Chicago

Sadly, I just moved away from Chicago, but when I do go back, the one restaurant that I really crave is avec. Bustling with groups and couples sitting at the bar, the atmosphere is loud and boisterous--it's not the kind of place one goes for conversation. And reservations are not taken, so be prepared to stand when the tiny restaurant is elbow-to-elbow. The broad wine list complements the menu of small plates, which ... view more

excellent food, good wine choices, fresh cheeses

The food & wine are something to rave about, but I don't really like the sharing tables biz and I prefer to sit up at the bar since it actually feels private. I give the food and waitstaff 100% but be prepared for some overbearing loud-talking scenesters who want to be seen and heard. The cheeses and olives excellent and never had a bad glass of wine here. Blackbird is a lovely restaurant by same owner if you need... view more

What life should be all about...

This restaurant is so amazing. The food is to die for! Everything I've eaten there, and I've been 7 times, I love! I won't recommend anything because simply if you close your eyes and point at something on the menu you can't go wrong. My friends and I go often now. The wine list is extensive and interesting and they do have the service down to an artform. Hip music, chic clientele and a decor that is modern and... view more

Interesting menu

This restaurant was packed! Communal seating, so don't expect privacy. There was a wait where we took a bottle of wine to the sidewalk, which was quieter for our wait.\r \r The olive oil for the bread was the most flavorful I have ever had. I took the recommendation of previous reviewers and got the dates - they were excellent - spicy! My absolute favorite was the roasted beet bruschetta. I never would've dreamt... view more
