Body shops in the city? (chicago)

Got caught in a hailstorm a while back... about 10 quarter sized dings. Was going to take it to Perillo's bodyshop (I live in the city), but Yelp has some pretty scathing reviews for them..

thoughts? insurance is footing the bill, so I'm more concerned about quality than price.

I have been to IND and they do great job, but it is a little far for sure from Downtown. I did my bumper at Simon's Shine Shop. They are a renowned car wash but they actually do bodywork as well. They fixed up my bumper perfectly.
