My company and I went to your restaurant and I just wanted to get a warm salad that goes with you tuna steak, but your (sorry to say), obscene waiter Carl-Johann forcibly made me get the whole dish, WITH the steak that I did not...want, claiming that you have such rudimentary systems that it is not possible just to have the side dish and make it with a separate checkout in your systems! We are living in the year 2021! You have very ancient cash register systems, for such a large company! And then on top of all that, he brings that carcass to me, as a VEGAN, to look under my eyes while I eat my plant-based dish. That dead freaking body I didn't want to eat in the first place! I can imagine how he made fun of my mockery and forced sales to his colleagues, etc.! I'm not the most "gentle soul" vegan and I'm vegan more for health reasons, but the mockery that he forced me to buy that bs and has the guts to bring that corpse under my nose to look at while I'm eating (that's straight spitting in Vegan's face !!!) completely crossed the line !!! I hope that 18.50€ was worth for Your restaurant and to Carl-Johann to get the title and the reputation "THE MOST VEGAN UNFRIENDLY RESTAURANT IN EUROPE if not in the world!!!" I have traveled quite a bit in Europe and all over the world and I have NEVER been treated like this before!!! I'm usually a really calm person and barely ever get pissed off by service or write any negative ratings, but this was very bad service and unprofessional activity by Carl-Johann and if this is the policy of your restaurant and how you train your people, I feel very sorry for your business!!!More

Poor and slow service, there were at least 3 employees who didn't pay attention when we arrived and waited for the menu way too long. Rice in risotto was raw, waiter couldn't recommend any drinks than most common Mojito and Aperol Spritz.

Price for the lunch was reasonable, under 7€. Basic stake with vegetables from the menu 24€. Quality of the food was ok. Service was ok.

Fantastic little find. Very authentic and would recommend to anyone. Especially if there is an act on.

Walking around hoping to have a small bite and knowing the place, however it has been relocated we were unpleasantly surprised. It looked like the staff were preparing for an event later this evening yet we were sat down and our order was taken within...five minutes since the kitchen works non-stop. We have received our drinks and were waiting for over 35 minutes for our dishes. I was in a company of a chef who runs his own restaurant and he was furious about the service. He asked several times about the order and his patience ran out when he saw the kitchen staff sitting in the restaurant and eating their lunch I presume. At the mark approaching 45 minutes waiting time, the waiter told us five more minutes which turned out to be 10! We were told that there was a miscommunication between the bar and kitchen. However, in my opinion to serve a table of two when the restaurant is empty and the kitchen should be open round the clock it is unacceptable In the end we simply left 10€ for the drinks that were actually served promptly and left. Cannot say anything about the quality of the food since none got to try anything besides the bread, but the service and attitude was woeful.More

Delicious food and drinks, polite staff. However, if you hire 1-2 more waiters in the evening, it will be perfect!

We came for drinks. It seemed bit unsure whether we would get in for just drinks (?) but eventually we did. The staff seems a bit out of place? Something a bit strange about the whole place... but I’m not saying anything. Hmm.

We enjoyed our time at Chicago 1933, the atmosphere was nice and relaxed. The Bar In the middle of the restaurant was cool. We went for a snack midday. We ordered Crispy Garlic Bread, French fries and two Chicago1933 largers. We enjoyed our snacks and...beer. Service was friendly. We will return when the band is playing!More
