Great Fish, Great WaitstaffMy friend and I had not seen one another for a couple of years and needed to catch up. We sat and were never rushed to order or to leave. Our meals were delicious. I had the lobster thermador and she had halibut. The wine selections were varied in both price and origin. The best part was we were unaware they closed at 10pm on weeknights. Not one person said a thing about us leaving until we noticed everyone else was gone. We were still there at 11pm. The waiters all said for us to finish and not worry about anything. We of course left a large tip and apologized for the delay. I have been there before and will be back again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAs expected...SUPER!Wonderful food and fabulous service...what more can you ask for?6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendGreat food, and wonderful service!

In a category dominated by chains and tourist traps, this restaurant continues to offer an authentic New England experience.
Food was very good though the Halibut doesn't compare to the Dover Sole.
Service was first rate and professional.
We've been customers for 30 years and hope to be for many more.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis venerable Chicago spotThis venerable Chicago spot was extremely convenient for a quick dinner on our way to the opera, and having told our experienced server of our timeline, we received excellent and efficient service. We ordered appetizers and sides, not main courses, and the quality of the food was quite good. If you think the charm of the place is in its old-fashioned feel, then you will be happy to return to a spot that has changed almost not at all in more than 30 years. That said, it (and its menu) could use a little freshening up to be more relevant.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA HomerunWe have been coming to the Cape Cod Room for years. We live in Los Angeles and make a point of dining at this fine spot every trip to Chicago. We especially enjoy the oysters but all of the food is excellent. This particular trip happened to fall on our son's 18th birthday and he requested dinner at the CCR to celebrate. As luck would have it, our trip from the airport was delayed and we arrived just as the restaurant was taking it's last kitchen orders for the night. The staff graciously welcomed us and made the night one our son will always remember. Thank you Cape Cod Room!! Your entire staff is fabulous. See you in the fall.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMREADING ABOUT JULIA CHILD...in Bob Spitzs' DEARIE, I decided only Dover Sole Meuniere would do and I knew the Cape Cod Room would do it Juliias' way.
