  • judy_mcmullen reviewI have been in Chicago on Business since January of this year. I eat out every night and can honestly say that my dining experience with Ben Pao has definitely been among the best I've had (if not the best). Not only is the food exceptional, but the staff is by far superior to any other restaurant I've visited. On June 25th, our waiter was Paul B. and on July 9th our waiter was Robert. If the rest of the waiters in your establishment are as exceptional as these two, then you have a winning combination between the food and the service. I can't say enough wonderful things about Ben Pao's. And by the way, I heard about your restaurant on a bus tour of Chicago-the tour guide announced that Ben Pao has the best Chinese Food in all of Chicago! Thanks again for a wonderful dining experience and I look forward to my next meal at Ben Pao!Judy McMullen Fort Worth, TX

    55555 by Kat M.


  • Jim J.Bill's budino!!!!

  • Cedric A.The wild boar radiatore is AMAZING. However, there is nothing that I had that I didn't like...

    55555 by Cedric A.


  • MakedaSmall plates. Between two girls, we had 6 items and spent $32 each with tip. Start w/ meatballs, Brussels sprouts, pizzette then get cavatelli with beef and pork ragu, the lobster risotto and tortufo

    55555 by Makeda


  • MakedaThey should just call the truffle garlic bread just "garlic bread" because there is no hint of truffle in what we ordered. Very salty though.

    22222 by Makeda


  • MakedaIf they have the Pizzette with heirloom spinach, fontina cheese, 600 day prosciutto, GET it! Very small portion so get two for the table.

    55555 by Makeda


  • MakedaBrussels sprouts are very tasty and very well prepared. Good veggie option for all the cheesy, carb-y menu.

    55555 by Makeda


  • MakedaArtichoke is nothing special. Too greasy and the aoli isn't that flavorful. Ditch it!

    33333 by Makeda


  • MakedaThe smoked ricotta cavatelli with pork and beef ragu is so hearty and well flavored you'll lick the bowl. Must get.

    55555 by Makeda


  • MakedaThe meatballs are a big draw at this trendy spot. The marinara sauce is light but flavorful. Ditch the truffle garlic bread, tastes nothing like truffles.

    55555 by Makeda


  • Rishad T.Pepperoni Pizette and Garlic Bread to start. Brazinno ( for two ). Hazelnut Sorbet in Chocolate Shell!

    55555 by Rishad T.
