Service is terrible and food is fair. Cobb salad came without avocado & took forever to flag down the waitress to correct, she never came back with it, finally got the bus person to get it. Didn't even try to flag them down for ketchup & salt - just went and found myself. Took forever to wave down for another drink. Appetizers were pretty good; cheese steak sliders were tasty & popcorn shrimp w/alioli was pretty good. Cheeseburger was dry and flavorless. Turkey club was skimpy on turkey/bacon and fries were cold. Not worth going to - find some place else.

We tried Wicker Park as we've had many late nights here. Never eaten and wanted to be outside tonight. We got a table right a way onthe sidewalk, the wait suggested we order the pretzel/bread. It came with a cheese dip, but for 3 bucks getting 5 small pieces it was gone quick. My BF and I got 2 wraps which were okay, we've had better. The fries you can skip, but the service made us not want to return for dinner. Too many places with "bar" food to have to chase down someone to place an order.

This place is really hit or miss. I've eaten here for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes I've had great service and other times it's been lousy. The brunch is a good deal unless you want a bloody mary- which isn't included in the cost. It's $10 and served in a pint glass. They're really good but order a few of those and watch the total of your bill rise very rapidly. If you order the cobb salad, whatever you do, don't put the vinigrette dressing on the salad. It's disgusting. It' s basically oil with a few herbs that have sunk to the bottom. Zero taste.

I have ordered from Wicker Park numerous times. For the most part they have been really good until tonight. I ordered the Filet Mignon Sliders and my food arrived stone cold. When I called to complain, the manager informed me that they were tight on delivery tonight and my food must have sat around for a while and then because it is so cold out, my food must have gotten even more colder. There was no offer of a credit or even a future discount. He basically said that he would try to get the delivery guys more organized and hung up on me. This restaurant is definitely off my list for a long time for delivery which is unfortunate because the food is really good.

Called and ordered 1 Kentucky Hot Brown and an order of boneless chicken wings for delivery. Only living 2.5 blocks away I figured it would take no more than 15 minuets for delivery, afraid not... After 45 minuets I called to find out the status and was put on hold for 15 minuets. The food arrived after 1 hour, the hot brown cold, and the chicken wings as well. The wings are another thing in them self. Hard over breaded and over fried breast strip, with a thick shellack of pseudo buffalo sauce that makes a thick slug of the breading, utterly deplorable. The one good thing I can say about the food is, the carrots were fresh. I will never order from there again. Sub par on all levels, an utter disappointment on the upper eastside

I come to Wicker all the time, as it is a great place to grab a couple drinks with friends after work or on the weekend, or for a casual meal (or both). Not the place if you're looking for a quiet meal with parents or significant others, as this doubles as a fun bar hangout that can sometimes be quite loud with a largely post-collegiate crowd ranging from 22-30 yrs old. However, Wicker stands out by coupling a fantastic menu that expands from the normal bar fare with several salad choices, twice-baked potato halves, and filet mignon sliders (some of my favorites), while at the same time offering a lively bar scene. Wicker's success in offering both make this a great go-to spot on the UES, and I definitely recommend it.

So my fiance and I went to this place on a friday night. From the outside it looks like it might be a quaint restaurant with nice tables outside and a pleasant veneer. Once we got inside it looked like a 1920's speakeasy. There were twitty little post college kids screaming at the bar, douchey post college and older men trying to bang the post college girls and loud tv's everywhere. Granted it was a game night (too bad for the mets), but there are tvs blaring at every conceivable angle. So god forbid you’re trying to have a nice meal at what you thought was a decent restaurant, you feel like an asshole sitting there while semi-drunk kids scream and jeer past you at a tv. As for the food, no one there was ordering anything other than a burger or a salad. On menupages they show this fancy-shmancy menu, which again adds to the façade of this place being a legitimate restaurant. But its when you get there its effectively a bar menu with a couple of garnishes trying to mask it. A potato skin by any other name is just as greasy. The big problem is the atmosphere; this place is too loud and sports fan oriented to be an actual restaurant and there are too many restaurant-esque features to make it a decent bar. So Wicker Park effectively ends up chasing its own tail trying to be an omnibus hangout. My advice – if you want a bar there are plenty of actual bars that would make you happier; if you want a restaurant the same rule applies.
