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 Magnolias 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 3 out of 5 by They didnt have the pasta dish I wanted. I guess the menu chages. Not enough menu choices. No salt and pepper on the table. Not enough butter was provided. The salad I ordered didnt have enough dressing. Jan 27, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by We have always enjoyed our meals at Magnolia, however, our last visit did not live up to their usual standards. One of our appetizers came with an item that we requested be left off for dietary restrictions. Our 2nd course was delivered promptly, but one of the items was wrong, and it took awhile to make what was originally ordered, which was mussels. When the mussels arrived they were every fishy smelling. Jan 15, 2014
