The term "labor of love" gets thrown around a lot in the culinary world, but for Between Boutique Cafe and Lounge in Wicker Park, it's an accurate description. The small plates spot was opened by actor and food industry buff Carl Anderson as a way to pay homage to his wife Lu Lu. Given its creation as a sort of restaurant Taj Mahal, it should come as no surprise that Between's decor exudes a feeling of warmth, or better yet, sultriness. From the magenta seats and booths to the crimson curtains, the setting provides the perfect atmosphere for seduction. That said, this isn't just a place for hot dates. Groups of friends looking for good food, wine and conversation will feel right at home in the sophisticated digs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by some of the best ceviche in the city Feb 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Service is totally SLOW!! We receive the menu right away, but no one ever took our order, nor did they bring water, folks plates nothing no one ever came back!! We had to get up and go to the cashier and aggressively express our concerns. Terrible service overall Jan 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Went on a Thursday so there were only a few other diners. The service was attentive and very accomondating to my vegan friend.The food was great. The classic ceviche is not to be missed. The seafood was very fresh tasting and delicious. Serving sizes for the entrees are plentiful allowing for a doggy bag significant enough for another meal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by We were seated and not given menus. A couple of minutes later the waitress asked us if we had decided what we wanted. That is when we asked for menus. She gave them so us...and then she didn't stop at our table the rest of the night. We literally waited at least 35 minutes since we were seated for someone to take our order. It wasn't the original girl who had asked us earlier when we did not have menus, it was a gentleman. Very kind and polite. We then waited another 10 minutes before we received our drinks. It was also not busy. And we saw our original waitress walk pass us numerous times but never stopping at our table. I am not sure what happened, but that definitely ruined our experience and any chance of coming back despite how good the food was. Nov 15, 2013
