Magnolia Cafe is located north of downtown Chicago in the newly revitalized neighborhood of Uptown. Beautiful pictures of Magnolia flowers line the walls of this intimate American Bistro. The atmosphere is cozy and conversation friendly with lively jazz music playing softly in the background. One can enjoy many of the unique cocktails served at Magnolia's bar or indulge in any of their small production, boutique bottles of wine. Steak and fish dishes are prepared with a stylish twist and choosing one dish from another is quite the challenge. Since its opening in December of 2001, owner and chef Kasra Medhat thrives in delivering his recipe for great service and a delightful culinary adventure. Neighborhood regulars all describe Magnolia as an incredible dining experience and a warm and inviting place not to be missed when looking for a truly memorable dinner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by the halibut, shrimp, reduction, spinach, hot pepper conbo had a bit too much going on. Once I hit the heat of the pepper full on in my mouth I could not taste anything. It was good up until I was hit with a real hot spot. Aug 13, 2014
