Extremely bad customer service... first time there & my last

I just waited over an hour for a pork chop at MATILDA-babyATLAS that the waitress told me was dropped on the floor and had to be remade. The group I was with finished their meals about 20min before my food was even ready, so I had to have the new pork chop made to-go. The waitress only offered me 25% off my pork chop, and I told the waitress I didn't think I should have to pay for it since it took about 40min longer than it should have and I wasn't even going to be able to eat it at the restaurant. Then, she brought over the to-go bag after and literally dangled the food in front of me and said, ""We'll it's right here if you want it for 25% off."" Extremely bad customer service? my first time there and also my last.

Best Bar in Lakeview

One of my favorite bars in Chicago, even with the treacherous stairs leading to the bathroom! The eclectic atmosphere, fun jukebox, and mind numbing martinis add up to countless nights of fun.

Wow

I can't believe what I saw. First, I thought my buddy had ditched me, however, I noticed my friend being dragged outside. Little to be known, my friend is a martial artiest and could have made an embarassing scene, however, he choose to be led out. Why the doorman did this, no one knows, he didn't even't want to let us know he ""kicked"" our buddy out. I have always had a good time at Matilda's previously, but I doubt I will ever be back.

Overall
great deal with a real neighboorhood feel

My friends and I love Matilda's! It's got really great food and a jammin' jukebox that is updated frequently. The atmosphere is eclectic, yet hip. You can enjoy playing pool or darts in the upstairs, with the added bonus of not having to fight smoke. Or you can make your way downstairs where you can dance and light one up. We actually rented a part of Matilda's out for a birthday bash! The bartenders were very friendly and efficient, the atmosphere was intimate, and we were able to bring our own iPod of music to listen to. Matildas is a great deal with a real neighborhood feel! Check it out!

Lovely lovely Matilda

Matilda was the first bar/restaurant I became familiar with when I moved to Chicago over two years ago, and its still one of my top three favorite places in the city. Because of the cozy/quirky atmosphere, friendly staff, and great juke box options it has the feel of a comfortable neighborhood dive, without actually looking like one. Its a classy place with top-notch food and drinks, and a fun place to hang out for a solo drink after work, a casual date, or with a group of friends.

Great Neighborhood Bar

I live nearby and I consider Matilda to be the only worthwhile option in the neighborhood. The food is delicious, the music is always solid and the staff is extremely friendly. The beer selection is diverse, ranging from PBR (value), to something really German with an impossible to pronounce name (quality). Best of all, the environment accommodates both quiet conversation and rambunctious dancing. Matilda is always a great night waiting to happen!

Overall
Matilda = excellent service, food, & fun

I have been to Matilda's many times and it is an awesome bar. I have comments about two different types of experiences there, regular visits and private parties (in Baby Atlas).

First thing that stands out is the funky atmosphere and the sign saying you must be 23 to enter. The decor is visually interesting and inviting. I've had several menu items, including the flatbreads, fish tacos, and wings. They are all excellent. The staff is a huge plus, extremely friendly and really add to the experience.

I have also thrown several parties in Baby Atlas. If you have a group of say up to 50 this is one of the most fun places to have your party. The $25 / 3 hours is totally reasonable and you can bring your own ipod for music if you want. I don't know how it happens but by the end of the night we're always dancing like maniacs.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better combination of fun, service, and value than Matilda's

best of all worlds.

My favorite bar in chicago. The jukebox is incredible, food is affordable and tasty, and the staff's friendly. Somehow the place has managed to divide two entirely different atmospheres; lounge upstairs and funky dance dive downstairs. Surrounded by the neighborhoods of lincoln park, lakeview, wriggleville, and boystown the crowd is always diverse.
