Michael Taus - The Most Arrogant Restaurant Owner I've Ever Met

My wife & I live in River North & eat out literally every night. We've have been to well over 200 different Chicago restaurants over the last year, & our worst expereince - hands down - was at Zealous. All started OK when we arrived & were seated on time; however, that's when the issues began. While the restaurant wasn't particularly busy, the services was incredibly slow. After 10 minutes the very hectic, fluste... view more

On its way out?

We had an unusual experience at this restaurant, which I haven't hesitated to share with many others as it was strange. Friday night and you'd expect a line out the door, however when we arrived in the cab the first thing we noticed was that the place was nearly empty. The maǐtre d' was courteous and had no problem with our having a drink even though we were at our reservation time. Soon, however, the chef came ou... view more

Creative palate pleasing food and wine combinations.

Chef Michael Taus is a reliable crowd pleaser when it comes to this beautiful venue for creative global cuisine. Wheather it is a perfectly seared steak, fresh seafood in a red curry sauce, or a creative vegetarian offering you can be certain that your taste buds will be pleased. Most importantly when it comes to the wine enthusiasts, you can choose from a large inventory of hard to get wines. Try the 5 or 7 cours... view more

So not Saltaus

They should have stopped with Zealous. The best is the best. Great bar, drinks, food,etc.... The host was a little affected for his own good.

We celebrated our anniversary at Zealous and enjoyed our meal tremendously. I'm a vegetarian (though not vegan) and my husband is not. We were each able to enjoy a 5-course meal with wine. It's very rare that I can have a gourmet meal without limiting my order to appetizers, salads or side dishes, so I felt well cared for! We had a fairly private table next to a partition, and even though there was a large, corpo... view more

Hidden Gem w/ beautiful interior, great staff!

I came hear for a celebration and had never heard of it and walked away really impressed. In this city where there are a lot of really overpriced restaurants trying way too hard, this one was a gem. It has a calming ultra-Zen like interior. The chef came out and joined us and talked us through the menu, the waiter was very patient and knowledgeable. The food was very creative, not too large of portions, great wine l... view more

Worst service ever

My party of 10 arrived on Saturday and waited 45 minutes for a drink -service went downhill from there. I can't say I blame our waiter -the timing seemed off from beginning to end -cold entrees - long waits for everything -when I complained to the general manager, I was told that the fault was the tables -arriving on time and asking for the bill to be divided. The Chef/Owner ended up paying for our meals but was i... view more

The food at Zealous is FANTASTIC! By far, the chef is one of the most creative in Chicago. My husband and I are vegetarian, but we enjoy seasoned, flavorful food. Michael has exceeded our expectations! KT Morris-Lee

Just got back from having the five course dinner there with my mom and my sister. Having just eaten at Trio, I think its interesting to compare the two. Overall, the food at Trio is more attractive, unusual, and refined, but much less flavourful. Furthermore, dinner at Zealous costs less, and you get more food. We're all very full and very happy and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. My one caveat is that som... view more

Don't Bother

After reading the reviews on Zealous I was interested in sending my managers there for a business dinner. I was suprised at the positive reviews on Citysearch after the horrible experience of bad food and service that my manager had upon closer inspection I realized that the positive reviews are written in the same 'tone'. Obviously written by employees trying to take advantage of Citysearch. There are some amazin... view more
