    We had looked at the restaurant menu on their Website prior to visiting. The menu we were given when we arrived at the restaurant was nothing at all like what we had seen, and was much more limited and much less interesting. Unfortunately, we had opera tickets and thus not enough time to search for an alternative. Our waiter noted our disappointment, and went out of his way to help.

    I thought this hotel restaurant would be a white tablecloth place. At 5:30 PM they were out of the specials! What's up with that? Service was scattered and perfunctory. Randolph St. prices ($32 per entre) with a Denny's ambience.

    Upon walking into an empty restaurant for Easter Brunch I was initially filled with worry. That was quickly eased by the terrific food, wonderful service and terrific atmosphere created by the Team @ Dine. I feel 100% confident referring anyone looking for a great eclectic brunch and a wonderful time. One note - don't look for it on Madison because it is almost impossible to find, look on Halsted!

    When our party arrived, there was no one to seat us. Literally, it seemed like no one was working here. There was one group there, so I know it was open...but I still felt pretty silly for having made a reservation. After a few awkward minutes we decided that even if we eventually got seated it was going to be weird being 20% of the people there, so we left. I gave the food a 3, but only because for all I know it could be amazing.

    I like the idea of it being scratch kitchen, but overall the food was only ok. Some restaurants in hotel overcome the "hotel" feeling. Think Fillini or the Palm, this does not. Our server was good. I was looking forward to finding somewhere new especially since it also open for lunch and close to my office. Chances are I won't return.

    Don't waste your time going here. I dropped over $50 on what was at best an overpriced Chili's (I'd rather eat Chili's). The staff did not understand the menu. My friend ordered crab dip, which seemed to just be spinach dip. When we asked the waitress if this was crab dip, she wasn't sure either and took it back to the kitchen. They told her it was crab (but then gave us a few chunks of crab to mix in - thanks). They brought lunch after having just given us appetizers. I ordered crab cake for lunch and was expecting a crab cake like I receive at other Chicago restaurants. What I got was a fried breaded crab cake that I could have gotten from the frozen aisle of the grocery store along with oil soaked fries. I would never go here again.

    I did not realize the location was inside a hote. Where everything was ok, nothing was over the moon special. With so many other great eateries in the same area this was the only option for late brunch for the time selected. The lobster roll was great. The crab cake not so great. I brought half of it home and never had the desire to finish it off. Two days Later it went into the trash. I could not get pass all the breading. Not what I expected for a 1000 point opening table selection.

    I found this place via Open Table and the overall experience was pretty lack luster. Two of us had the steak an eggs tacos and I was amazed that neither the eggs, steak, or salsa had any flavor, I have to imagine you would have to try to have that happen with all three. The french toast was leftover hamburger buns and fairly flavorless as well. The price points were very reasonable, however I can think of 10 diners with the same price points and fantastic food. Again, none of it was down right bad, it was just wasn't down right good.

    Me and my siblings attended Dine for Mother's Day Sunday. When we got there, brunch was over and we were unaware. At first, we didn't quite understand the menu because we had looked at the menu prior to going and we didn't know there would be a special menu for Mother's Day.. But, this amazing male waiter brought us out the menu which made ordering so much easier and he was really sweet, kind and polite. The service was amazing and the people really take pride in making sure their customers are comfortable and well served. The Food was DELICIOUS!! By far the best pancakes I've tasted in a long while. The prices were pretty great as well and we were given roses for Mother's Day. We will be dining there soon again in the future!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/7/2013
    This was one of the worst breakfast experiences we ever had. After being seated, we waited for over 10 minutes to get coffee and water, the breakfast bar was very limited in its selection and the first time through most of the serving dishes were empty. My companion decided he wanted something off the menu and we waited another 20 minutes before getting menus and an order taken. For the price charged for the breakfast bar I was expecting a few more options or choices or at least one or two dishes that were different and/or unique. This is not a location we would return to anytime soon.

    I wouldn't say that I was that crazy about Dine. It's in a hotel and there's no real ambiance about the place. It kind of reminded me of like a glorified diner. Our service was ok although it did take 10 minutes or so to get a diet coke and my pasta, the bucatini was VERY bland. I could have gone home and made plain noodles at my house if I had wanted.

    We had been wanting to try Dine, but didn't realize it was in a hotel (not a swanky hotel - the Crowne Plaza on the edge of 90/94). Went for brunch - menu was ok. Seemed like lots of folks who were staying at the hotel, rather than neighborhood folks, some with luggage. We ordered omelettes which were good but nothing special and a little greasy. Had to hunt our server down to place our order, but the manager more than made up for it by checking in on us and being very warm and friendly. There is lot parking bu the majority is valet - complimentary, but you still have to tip. Very few "free" spaces in the lot.

    The Thanksgiving buffet was a great disappointment for the price. The soup was good. Salad was good. The turkey OK. The dressing was inedible. Mashed potatoes mediocre. Pies were bland and obviously mass produced, previously frozen types. My waitress was sweet and obviously gave up a holiday with family to be there. I had one drink that was so strong I couldn't drink more than 1/4 of it. The meal was way overpriced for the value.

    I have wanted to try Dine for some time because a perusal of its menu listes some interesting items. The experience, however, was terrible. It was a Friday evening--before a very popular concert at a near-by venue. Even though we had a reservation, it was evident from the moment we walked in, that the restaurant was completely unprepared for the number of patrons who had arrived, nor was it even ready for people such as ourselves who had made reservations. In short, there was only one waiter for the entire establishment. Food was ok but I will never go back. These people didn't have a clue about appropiate service. Avoid at all costs.

EhThe calamari we received was ok, quite a large portion. The steaks were cooked to order. The service was fine. I guess I was expecting more. It was good, ok in price, just thought the website and reviews made it sound more exciting. I would eat here agin.
