Florian Opera Bistro

Florian Opera Bistro at Lyric Opera of Chicago

Conveniently located on the third floor of the Lyric Opera House, the Florian Opera Bistro is a casual and chic European-style bistro with a new menu by Jewell Events Catering. Complete with a full bar, the Bistro is the perfect place to enjoy a light pre-performance meal, a glass of wine during intermission, or a post-curtain cocktail or dessert.

You’re welcome to pre-order beverages or food at the Bistro prior to curtain time and pick it up during intermission or after the performance. For matinee performances, the Bistro will be open beginning at 11:30am and for an hour after the performance ends. For evening performances, the Bistro will have reservations available for a 5:00pm seating.

Reservations are available for first seating only, but not required. Please arrive within 15 minutes of your scheduled reservation to be guaranteed a table. Walk-ins always welcome and encouraged.

Please note that the Florian Opera Bistro is open only to patrons who hold tickets for that day's performance. Entry to all restaurants is through the Lyric Opera House after presentation of tickets
