  • This Cajun style restaurant brought me to Heaven. After wandering the city for about an hour trying to find a place to eat, and passing by this restaurant numerous times, we finally decided to give it a try. And boy, were we glad we did!

    Food: I always worry about cajun food, as my past experiences have led me to overcooked, burnt meals, that everyone reassures me that's how cajun is supposed to be. Well Heaven on Seven has showed me what cajun is all about! We went for the sampler platter that had a little bit of everything: Po Boy sandwiches, sausages, crab cakes, catfish, fried chicken, fried pork...holy crap this plate was loaded. It was absolutely delicious. Well seasoned, well cooked, and well liked by both of us.

    Services: The service was good. I don't really remember much of it, but it wasn't bad, otherwise I'd be writing about it.

    Atmosphere: The elevator ride to get to the restaurant was the moment of anticipation. Is this going to be a hit or miss - definately a hit! The decor was a mix of New Orleans canteen with stuffed alligator and memorabilia, and Chicago city glam.

    Overall the food was a big hit in a nicely decorated restaurant with southern style.If you're visiting Chicago, make sure you visit Heaven on Seven. This is definately the Best Louisiana Cookin' Outside of New Orleans!

  • Order: Sampler platter

  • The daily blue plate lunch special is a great bargain. You get gumbo or salad, the entree, a softdrink and a dessert for $12. You can't beat it and the food it great.

  • Order: The daily special

  • Heaven on Seven gets it right! Our waitress could have been friendlier, but overall a good experience worth repeating. Watch out for the hot sauces!

  • Yum!! The blackened chicken salad is great with a honey dijon-ish dressing. The gumbo was full of sausage and had just the right amount of kick to it.

  • Order: blackened Chicken salad, gumbo, crab cakes

  • I learned about 'Heaven on Seven' through one of my former co-workers. We were trying to decide where to go for lunch one day, and she told me about 'Heaven on Seven', so I decided to try it at least once. I'm happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how good my meal was, and I've been back there several times since then. I spent a little more money than I normally care to spend on lunch, but to me it was worth every penny.

  • Order: I ordered a Shrimp Poor Boy Sandwich, Catfish Dinner, and their Seafood Gumbo

  • The food was okay, but not great. Definitely overpriced for the food and for the atmosphere. Exposed wood and walls full of many different types of hot sauce make it a casual dining place, while the prices are a little steep. I doubt I'll go again.

  • Order: Catfish Po Boy, Seafood Gumbo, Bread Pudding
