Carol Wallack and I had lunch at Nine last week - I'm surprised I beat her to the punch here in Restaurant Rave. I'll be as objective as I can, considering I consulted - along with my partner Michael Kornick - on some computer and financial planning parts of the project.

The room is slick - you can tell tell they spent some money. The tabletop is sharp and so was the service. (I think they're through the problems with the door and phone.) Food was overall good, though some dishes could've used some seasoning. Nice steak frites and grilled ahi, though I was disappointed that ahi was the only fish main course offered at lunch. The menu graphics were hard to read - not very user friendly.
I would definitely go back for what I'm sure would be another positive experience.

They have an awesome POS, too!

How was the service there? I have heard mixed reviews about it. Ranging from impecable to haughty and rude. Wondering how your experience was.

I heard it was rough at the beginning, too. The phones were especially bad, I know from personal experience. Overall, though, we were happy with the service.

Even the valet didn't move my seat around and change the radio station - one of my pet peeves!

Farmer Greg, Nine is in Chicago, in a Daniel Burnham building, recently developed into Randolph Place - 400 W Randolph-ish?

Very slick and still good food.

Sorry, my geekiness is showing! POS stands for "point of sale" - what amounts to a cash register is actually a very sophisticated computer database system. They're one of my consulting specialties.
