Loud but Lively

It's a bit loud in here for a dinner for two to be romantic, but the lamb is excellent. It may be a bit myopic of me, but I tend to order it every time. It never disappoints. The staff is attentive and the bar area is nice, albeit crowded.

pet friendly?

The parking may be a problem, unless you want to pay the valet $12 for it for no more than 3 hours. If you have a big dog, I would not recommend to bring it here, because there is very little room on the patio. The claimed dish for dogs is not given at all, just a bowl of water, unless you want to order something of the menu for you pet. The Tuesday special is just for people who sit at the bar, so if you want it the... view more

You can find better somewhere else

I came here during restaurant week with an open mind, and a positive attitude. \r
I left feeling bitter and cynical. \r
There were a few positives, thus the two stars, as opposed to one. The atmosphere is nice, thought a bit more dull than I was expecting. I was very excited to see that they served Lindemans Framboise beer. I had had it once before in NYC, for $14 for a bottle. It was expensive, but it was

Outstanding overall. Excellant food and preperation. Quality wine list and extremely good value. Ser

The meal was outstanding in every regard right down to the authentic French hard crust bread. The wine list was excellent in both quality of wines offered and value. The atmosphere was extremely nice and romantic, The only negative is the service staff. The bartender was not customer conscious, i.e. it took a while to get his attention and the waitress was very inattentive and slow. But overall we would highly recom... view more

Great for groups!

I have been to Brasserie JO on social accounts many times and loved the food and the service! I decided to host a corporate event there recently and had great feed back! From booking the room, customizing a menu to the execution of the actual night, everything was right on! My colleagues were given choices of the lamb, skate and steak au poivre as entree choices. The lamb was brought out a prefect med-rare and the sk... view more

very expensive and really not much above average

I have been here twice and I really did not find this food to be very authentic French at all, even though staff courteous and helpful. I have spoiled by living in France-Italy and this menu has been Americanized. The cuisine choices are not bad, however for the price they should be better. The atmosphere is bistro-like and waitstaff decent.

Supposed to be better

When I first arrived in Chicago, I asked some fellow French expats which French restaurant they would recommend for simple fares. One of the first that was mentioned was Jean Joho's 2nd restaurant (he's the chef at Everest), Brasserie Jo, which fares gastronomie from the Alsace region. Well let me tell you, I was disappointed the first 3 times I went to eat there and almost gave up. It finally took the 4th attempt fo... view more

Just no surprises

Average everything..service was good. Roast Chicken was nice but fries had black eyes from potatoes and tasted of old fat. Chicken mousse was a pate and tasted cheap, like store bought.\r
Still looking for a really authentic Chicago Brasserie AKA Les Halles or Orsay in NYC.\r

Don't waster your time or money

I ate over Thanksgiving 2006. Overally, I never got the impression that anyone working there was happy to have me as a customer. Service was very weak, could have been my waitress. She rarely came by, I had to continuously flag down others. Certainly she didn't know anything about wine. I asked her what type of grape the Rose was, and she said chardonnay. Hmmmm. I ordered the skate wing - it tasted like mush. It the ... view more

Cute place, but not fantastic

Went with 4 women on a Sunday night. We had heard about the baquette-in-a-bag, but they were out of them and we got basket of bread slices. Little disappointing. Great waiter, wine was very nice, menu was OK, food was very good tasting, atmosphere is fun, and desert was scrumptious. I guess when we don't get to Chicago very often, we just want the whole package, and the sans baquette put a dent in it all.
