The experience at Square One was the worst bar/restaurant experience I've ever had in any city. No one waited on us or even appeared to be working for at least 10 minutes. When a server did show up the service was beyond slow. My husband & I had to wait over 45 minutes to get our drinks and we were the only costumes in the place. We even had to change our drink order 3 times because the server clearly was not trained & did not know how to make our drinks even though they were right on the menu. Even a glass of wine was too difficult of an order. The meat & cheese also took a very long time to get. Eventually the manager came in appearing angry. This makes me hesitant to order groupons.

Our server Cole was phenomenal. Not only was he knowledgable about all aspects of the menu, he was just genuinely a friendly and warm guy. I think this establishment is a wonderful gem in the South Loop!

From Our Editors

Newly opened in the South Loop, Square One flourishes in its urbane environment, a simple bar-and-booth format fancied up with richly upholstered seats, soft golden chandeliers, and old-fashioned spinning bar stools. Slim bites of brie, blue, and cubeddu cheeses are sliced to order right on the bar, and the spread of cocktails named after James Bond characters employs uncommon ingredients such as crème de violette, grapefruit cordials, and a house-made basil vodka. The beer menu is similarly eclectic, favoring craft brews and ciders. Perhaps the most notable feature on tap is the mechanical wine dispenser, which loads up oenophiles’ glasses or top hats by the ounce. After its opening in August 2012, Grub Street lavished praise on Square One for living up to “the idea of a simple, first-class neighborhood place, with an eclectically chic look… a beer, wine, and cocktail program that stays away from big brands and prizes small, interesting producers, and a food menu that’s true bar food.”
