The weather was Beautiful with clear skies. I wore Black High-waisted distressed boyfriend Jeans with a black ruffled arm crop top and leopard printed ankle boots; accessorized with waistbeads, choker necklace and sparkling stud earrings. .
The seating in this venue can be pretty awkward. It's a big space, there's plenty of room, but the tables and chairs are awkwardly arranged, uncomfortable, and need to be shifted around to change from a comfortable position for eating into one that's good for watching the concert. Despite the large space, the seating arrangement is cramped and needs some rethinking.
Arrive early if you want Valet. If you want to save money on Valet ($13). Use Spot Hero to find a nearby parking spot for a cheaper price, you can usually save about $4-6.
If you come a few minutes early to City Winery, you can get a free taste of a wine they're featuring. Also, if you can't make up your mind which wine to order, ask your waitress for a taste before you order.
Plenty of food choices on Randolph and food is ok at City Winery w intg apps & wine choices. Service is good.
The weather was rainy and cool. I wore jeans, boots, sweater.
Great food and cocktails. Prices about normal for Chicago
I usually find parking within a couple blocks of City Winery.
There are a lot of bars and restaurants in the area. Parking is usually easier than other places in the city. There is valet parking, also.
Reserved seating means you will be placed where the venue decides to seat you and you wont like it
You can find free parking on the side streets close to the venue or you can valet park.
The weather was Pleasant . I wore Dress capris, nice blouse and cute sandals .
This was our first time at City Winery. It's a big room with lines of tables coming out from the stage. If you're a party of 2, you will end up with unknown people at your table. Apparently you can order a full meal there or just appetizers or a drink. The seating is a little cramped but the sound system was excellent.
We had the potato wedges and the pigskin punch which was very good, although I thought they could have given you a little more, for the price!
Valet is $10 but you can easily find fee parking on the side streets if you get there early.
