Fulton's on The River
Great service and river dining!We had an amazing night dining at Fulton's! The view on the river was second to none and the service made it a great experience.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable Mother's Day brunchexcellent view, service and chefs table for Mother's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectThe Mothers Day Brunch featured a lovely setting with quiet music, attentive waiters, roses for moms, and a selection of health foods. I especially liked the crab cakes. Plus the white sangria.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMclose quarters but great food!It was a great night Justin was an excellent waiter......food to die for! But it felt tight and confined....and I did not like the view of everyone walking into a wedding reception.....I would still go back, but I felt like I was bumping into servers and steak platters more than I'd prefer.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceI enjoyed Fulton's on the River. Is a great place. The food was very good and the service was phenomenal! I would definitely go again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunchI went there with some girlfriends for a nice leisurely lunch where we could actually hear each other talk. The fish tacos were fantastic as was the salad with salmon. It would be a great place to eat either before or after the Chicago Architectural Boat Tour!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance! Made us buy food:(Great view from the patio! It was the first warm night in Chicago and grabbing a drink on the patio didn't disappoint. However, Even though we were just there for drinks, they made us purchase a food item to sit on the patio! WHAT?!? I've never heard of such a thing. Other than that this is a great spot.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location for great steaks!We visit Chicago yearly and are always trying out new restaurants when we go there. We wanted to try one of their steakhouses and Fulton's did not disappoint! All the food we had was excellent and the steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Might be a little pricey for some, and important to note that if you want to dine out on their patio (right on the river with a gorgeous view of the city) you will have to book your reservation directly through Fulton's, not on OpenTable. But Fulton's is always high up on the list as one of the best steaks in Chicago and I highly recommend dining there to find out why! We give it a very high recommendation!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOverpriced!! Ala carte steaksOverpriced!! Ala carte steaks priced in the mid $40s but of only average quality and preparation.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad it been a little warmerHad it been a little warmer we would have been on their outdoor patio but just sitting by the windows still gave us an excellent view of the river. The restaurant was not crowded and while the waiter was very nice, service was a little slow. I had the cornish hen which lived up to its beautiful presentation. My nephew had the halibut and thought it one of the best he has had. The banana cream pie is a must for dessert. A good choice if you're looking for a nice, leisurely, relaxing dining experience.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding DiningMy mother and I were visiting from Michigan and took my youngest son to dinner. We had a delightful dining experience from the start. Our waiter, Jack, was very attentive, very knowledgable about the menu and had a nice sense if humor. We started with the deviled eggs and Mac and cheese appetizer delicious. We ordered the salmon, lamb porterhouse, and bone-in 22oz ribeye, creamed spinach, sautéed mushrooms, and asparagus each dish was prepared tp perfection! My Mom ordered the bread pudding for desert and my son ordered the carrot cake, unfortunately Fulton's did not have the bread pudding, so they graciously substituted a chocolate desert at no cost, very nice touch! Both deserts were over the top and we had a wonderful evening.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and outstandingExcellent food and outstanding device. Highly recommend!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was not preparedThe food was not prepared as well as they thought. The plating was poor and yet the service was excellent.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for lunch with a friendNice for lunch with a friend or business associate. Quiet enough to have a conversation. Food and service offer a real all round value.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife loved the quiet atmosphereMy wife loved the quiet atmosphere but it was early, 5:30 PM. I prefer more places with more people but that's just me.
Over all the dinner was great. The sever was very personable and answered all our questions thoughtfully and never pushed us in any direction. He did make our meal better though. My wife was curious about the Pimm's cocktail and he did encourage her to try it. Now she has a new drink favorite.
The mushroom side is amazing. The halibut special was perfect.
My only regret was not being able to handle dessert. The carrot cake may be famous but the portion is ridiculously large. No one needs that much cake. So it was wasted. I feel horrible about that.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location. ExcellentGreat location. Excellent steaks and fish. Wonderful service. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Fulton's is where it's at. Check this place out!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall a fabulous experience!The food here was absolutely outstanding! I enjoyed the delicious salmon and a twice baked potato while my daughter enjoyed a fabulous filet and garlic mashed potatoes. The dessert, A Heath Chocolate cake concoction, was so delicious that I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven. When we first arrived, the service started off a bit slow but eventually the staff more than made up for that. The views were fabulous and the interior was upscale and quite possibly even a bit swanky.... which I enjoyed. Overall, this was an experience I hope to repeat with my husband or with a group of friends.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall our dinner at Fulton'sOverall our dinner at Fulton's was very pleasant. The staff were very professional and provided good service.
We had a friend as our guest who lives in Chicago and had recommended Fulton's. We enjoyed our evening with her in this very nice setting.
We all had the salmon dish which was presented well, but my husband and I thought it was slightly undercooked so it was a little mussy instead of flakey.
The ambiance in the restaurant is perfect for pleasant a pleasant dinner.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent...and the views were gorgeous...however, the restaurant was very empty for a Saturday night at 6 pm...guess that meant we just got the best service...and again, the food was wonderful!2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFulton's On The River is aFulton's On The River is a very good restaurant. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was excellent, and the drinks were good as well. My steak was well prepared, and it didn't take forever for the food to come out to us, which I liked. The ambiance was quiet for a Saturday night; I believe that Fulton's is probably more popular in the summer because you can have dinner outside overlooking the river, but I was fine with the quiet ambiance. I recommend this place.1/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
