This was our first and most likely our last experience at Sepia. The food quality was outstanding. The prices were overpriced. There were four of us for dinner. We made a reservation, the table was not ready when we arrived. The told us to wait in the bar. We ordered our drinks and stood there for about 20 minutes (after the reservation time). The bar was also the main thorough fare for the servers to get through the place. They were extremely rude and pushy. Our server was ok - she could have taken personality training. When you are paying almost $150 per person, you would expect a better staff.

I am sad we did not see Sepia as everyone else had. The service was borderline bad, very very slow, and inconsiderate. We even had to talk to the manager on duty for the lack very slow service. Nothing comped at our complaint. Sepia is very pretty and the layout is great making each table feel comfortable and private. The food is very pretty also, but unfortunately the taste is no better then "good". Wish I could have liked it more, the ease to get into the place and the elegance would make this a restaurant gem for us and anyone wanting a great meal out with friends. I won't say we will never be back, but we will steer clear.

My husband said he's never had a better pork chop. The pork pate with fig jam and the flat bread with bacon and bc were wonderful. While the restaurant is attractive, it's too loud for my taste. The service was competent, but not polished. The food is the draw.

Don't get me wrong, Chicago has WONDERFUL food, but none of my experiences have even come close to Sepia. They had wonderfully thought out dishes and great drinks to complement. The portions were much more practical than comparable restaurants such as Avec or Blackbird but the dishes were no less well-thought out. It's a little expensive, but worth EVERY penny. Just a head's up, get a reservation well in advance or you won't get in!!

seriously, if you write a book, do you think anybody has time to read it?

Who has time for such a review (see below)? BTW, the food is very good.
