Do you have a dress code?

We do not require a dress code in The Bar or The Dining Room. That said, we find that most guests in The Dining Room wear cocktail / business formal attire or, as we often hear it called, "date ready".


What if I'm running late?

Please note that your reservation is scheduled to begin promptly at your seating time, and that arriving late may result in missing part of your experience. If you are running late, please contact the restaurant at (312) 600-5111 or contact@moodytongue.com. 


Where can I find parking?

Moody Tongue does not offer valet parking; using ride share, taxi or public transportation is suggested. If you would prefer to drive, there is free parking on Wabash Avenue and 25th Street immediately outside of the restaurant and there is metered parking on 26th Street.


What is the length of the tasting menu experience in The Dining Room?

The tasting menu experience in The Dining Room is typically two to two and a half hours.

Yes! To purchase a gift certificate for an amount up to $500.00, please follow this link. To purchase a gift certificate for an amount over $500.00, please e-mail contact@moodytongue.com.


Can dietary restrictions be accommodated?

While our culinary team makes every effort to create thoughtful alternatives for allergies and aversions, some restrictions unfortunately cannot be accommodated. Please send us an e-mail at contact@moodytongue.com prior to your reservation date to ensure that we can accommodate your restriction. If your reservation is in The Dining Room, please provide at least one week advance notice.


Is it possible to order a whole 12 Layer German Chocolate Cake to go?

Yes! We offer our 12 Layer German Chocolate Cake for curbside pick-up in two formats: (1) Whole Traditional Cake (i.e. a 10" round cake which is approximately 6" tall, the same as that served in our restaurant) and (2) Whole Sheet Cake (i.e. a 9" x 13" rectangle which is about 4" in height and may be easier for larger groups to share). Both formats are $125.00 plus sales tax. We typically request 7 days advance notice, but on occasion are able to accommodate shorter time frames. If you are interested in purchasing a whole cake, please e-mail contact@moodytongue.com.
