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 We headed here for a late casual brunch on a Sunday. There was no waiting, service was fast, food was perfect. Go for the crab cake benedict or the trout hash. It may seem expensive but the portions justify the cost. It wasn't overly noisy or crowded to where I couldn't hear my date. Jan 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was fantastic. The service was polite and prompt. Jan 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice selection of specialty cocktails. We started with cheese and meat board - great selection with prosciutto, salami, manchego aged cheddar, dried fuit and nuts - fantastic! We had the crab cakes, and Shredded port ravioli - both were excellent. We didn't have much time as we were headed to a play - wish we had more time Dec 1, 2014
