This is by far and away the best restaurant in the loop.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AM...just can't get enoughI know there are many places in the loop where I could host business lunches and breakfast but as they say, "If ain't broke. Don't fix it!"
That is what I feel about 312. The service is outstanding. The food and serving sizes meets is equal to the price you pay. The atmosphere is well suited for conversation as you are not bombarded with outside noise.
I've had lunches/breakfast ranging in size from 2 - 15 and I have never had a bad experience.
Kudos to the staff and owners at 312.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant mainly servesThis restaurant mainly serves the theatre crowd so our orders were served quickly.

Food was excellent service was outstanding5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Birthday Experience312 Chicago is a great place to eat and celebrate events. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and he & I had a smile since we walk in the door to the end of our dinner. Great place to eat. The food is so amazing. This was our first time at 312 Chicago and I would love to come back to experience great service. The wine was great and affordable.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA great option for theater goersOverall very good. Service was attentive and knowledgable. Food was well prepared and tasty and was presented very well. A tad pricey for the portions which are on the smaller side, but we didn't leave hungry.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Downtown Business BreakfastGreat place to take a cusotmer for breakfast and the food is superb.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest salmon I've ever had.
WentBest salmon I've ever had.
Went right after the theatre so the place went from empty to full very quickly, but they were ready for everyone and service was good.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMClose to Cadillac TheaterNot only close but right next door to the theater. It could not be more convenient than that. Our server, Eric, was terrific! Food was ok, not great, but presentation of food was lovely. I would go there again just for convenience of proximity to the theater.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA pre-theatre dinner for aA pre-theatre dinner for a party of 8. I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for a larger group. Drinks arrived a bit slow probably a function of a very busy bar. Food was outstanding.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in the theatre district!My request for a round table for our group of 8 was perfect! We all enjoyed our dining experience. The food was great, service was exceptional and the vibe in the restaurant was fantastic for a Saturday night!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA pre-theater must...Once again, this was our "go-to" spot for a nice, relaxed and creative dinner before theater. We arrived early and received our table, actually our favorite table, promptly and without a concern. The prix-fixe three course menu has been a wonderful addition to the atmosphere and this time my wife chose it and I used the regular menu, just the opposite of our last visit. We were surprised by the delivery of an amuse-bouche, a chef's small plate for each of us, with tomato and buffalo mozzarella cheese, wrapped with proscutto, warmed and served with aged balsamic, an antipasti we vowed to order when next we dine there. Service was pleasant and well-timed. This is an establishment with consistent quality and one of our favorites.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Pre-theater location!We had tickets to see a show next door at the Cadillac Palace and the wait staff and kitchen were extraordinary in getting our meal to us quickly, so that we could relax and enjoy our meal, the ambience wine and conversation, without a rush!!
I've already sent people there and will be back!!
We had a delicious meal and excellent evening.

The prix fixe menu was wonderful. I would definitely go there again when we are attending a play in the area. Petterino's is not the only place!!!! The valet parking at the Allegro Hotel made dining and seeing the show a splendid occasion.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMservers a plusWe have eaten at 312 3 times and all have been exceptional experiences.

Crowd noise was louder than I had anticipated but cannot really fault staff for that - other patrons should be more considerate. Deserts were wonderful.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect location if goingPerfect location if going to the theater. We were there for brunch and it was excellent.

Not very crowded on a Friday evening. Service was very friendly and efficient. Food items came out very fast(almost too fast!) A bit high with prices ,but it is downtown Chicago.

Ingredients were very fresh and the service quite good.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAgain, this is a regular stopAgain, this is a regular stop for us when there is downtown theater. We were early due to light traffic, but were welcomed and shown to our "regular" table without hesitation. We noted the "prix fixe" and pre-theater menu had been considerably broadened to allow choice of three appetizers, three main courses and three desserts and at a most reasonable price in addition to the regular menu and as always, with a very nice selection of wines by the glass in addition to those by the bottle. Service was nicely paced and waitstaff were diligent but not bothersome. While we did have a table of young women nearby who were quite noisy this time, we've found that to be the exception rather than the rule. It remains a favorite of ours.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI and my entire party wereI and my entire party were very impressed with 312 Chicago. The menu offered a varied selection of options. The wine menu was vast, with something for everyone. It's location close to the theater district makes it a fine choice for dinner prior to seeing a play.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENT service!

Never have to ask for anything.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing, definitelyThe food was amazing, definitely worth the price. Their fixed price offering was particularly impressive. Highly recommend the scallops and the tortellini with flour less chocolate cake.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWe always enjoy going to 312. We go at least 4 times a year.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made a reservation forWe made a reservation for brunch the morning after our daughtèr's wedding, which had been held at Hotel Allegro. It was so wonderfully convenient to be able to just walk down the corridor and have a lovely, relaxing time! Our waiter was very attentive and the brunch menu had a number of items that were unusual and appealing. The bacon, chedder omelet with white bean ragu was delicious, as was the short rib hash and brioche French toast. I would certainly go back, and also try it for lunch when I am in the loop.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice spot before or after a showServer was very attentive and the chef was very accommodating with our special request. French Toast & Eggs Benedict that were both FANTASTIC!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBooking a table for 8 throughBooking a table for 8 through OpenTable was quick and easy.

Also for our visit we needed to make the Opera and only had an hour. Go received prompt service and the seafood dishes were quick and fresh.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food, Service, & WineReally amazing food and service! Couldn't have asked for more =)3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPampered to the ultimate degreeI had the best dining experience of my life at 312 just a few nights ago, and that's no exaggeration! The food has been extensively reviewed by others, so I will focus on the component that made the experience unforgettable - namely, the service. My fiance and I were having a romantic evening, and to boot it was his birthday as well; accordingly, the staff went above and beyond to make us feel pampered to the highest degree. Our waitress - Zhanna - is the epitomy of the friendly yet unobtrusive and subtle service; she recommended the best lineup of courses, she personally chose our cocktails, wine and dessert liquer. She also brought the manager out to greet us, and we enjoyed the conversation with him as if he was a personal friend.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service.Outstanding food and service. Great recommendations from the waitress3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the service was very friendly.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every cent.A group of six of us tried out this gem for a special occasion . . . we left and talked about the experience for a solid day. The food was absolutely impeccable; not a single complaint or suggestion for improvement. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Give yourself enough time for multiple courses (it's worth the extra time and money), and a few extra minutes to give the servers some leeway when it gets very busy and can't give you their full, undivided attention. Oh, and sit upstairs! Lovely!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-theater treatGreat choice before theater, however, service is not rushed, therefore leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely dinner3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTop pre-theatre dining312 Chicago continues to provide top quality dining experiences. Convenient to the theatre district, from starter to dessert, each course has a well balanced list of choices to satisfy any taste. With a seasonal menu change, Lucca as a top chef and service from knowledgeable friendly servers (Sal is the best), you can't go wrong.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AM312 did a fantastic job of312 did a fantastic job of ensuring we had a great business meeting experience.
