Diner Reviews
  • "Food was average to good. I had Mac and Cheese dish that was good but I just expected or had a vision of more bacon and peppers in dish per the menu description. My wife's white fish was good as well. Witer was good. The menu was a disappointment. There are so many good eateries downtown that I would take a pass on returning. Lyoyd's was good for a quick dinner before our show."

  • "We chose Lloyd's for its location and price point. We were between arrival at Oilgive and a later Broadway in Chicago performance. Lloyd's location was great and we didn't want to blow-the-bank on the meal. The bar was packed but we were one of four tables seated during the early 5 - 7 hour in the dining area. The decor is stark, but the food and service were beyond our expectations when we discovered the lack of dining customers at that hour. Our waitress was attentive and very lovely to us. The price/value ratio for the cocktails (on special for the evening) and our dinner was excellent and we were very pleased and enjoyed a leisurely meal with perfect timing for the rest of the evening."

  • "I don't think the ambience or food is anything special here. It's all fine, but I feel like it's stuck back in the day. Not in a hurry to come back really."

  • "I wanted to meet a friend after work that was convent to both of our jobs, and Lloyd's was the place. It's usually quiet after work, a spot where friends can catch up over dinner. We both started our meal with the split pea soup, which we have to say was outstanding, just like grandma. For our main course my friend had the walleye special and I the cedar plank salmon. Both entree's were very delicious. We would recommend either entree."

  • "Good food, reasonable prices, attentive service and non-rushed while still guiding us toward finishing with ample time to walk to the shown in the next block. I would definitely dine here before the show next time. Sashimi tuna was great as was my wife's Talapia. Server enjoyed his profession without being too comfy with us. "

  • "There's not much open on this end of the loop Saturday night for dinner within walking distance to Opera House. Next time I'd go with more lunch type food, sandwich or salad. Crabcakes were disappointing. Found them very bready, minced crab vs lump. Thought it would be a safe bet being a Catch 35 sister restaurant, maybe should've tried the fish. Service got backed up but still fine on time. Comp'd 2 cappucinos. Surprisingly reasonable prices. Entrees came with vegetable and a starch."

  • "This is a real find for those attending Civic Opera. The location, just across the street, is perfect. The food was just delicious and the service was some of the best I've experienced."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Good location for seeing a show at the Civiv Opera House, but the food overall wasn't very good. For having a 'notable' seafood menu, the seafood cobb salad was full of mediocre fish. Overall pretty disappointed with the experience."

  • "We stopped at Lloyd's before going to the Lyric opera for a performance. The entire staff was friendly and the food was good and served quickly so that we would be in time for the performance. Parking was tricky to find the lot below the first time, but was worth the discount parking for the night. Would recommend for a quick bite."

  • "If your looking for a nice restaurant near the opera house or just looking for a new place to eat downtown try LLoyds .prices are reasonable for the quality of food and a very ample wine and beer list.I noticed there were people with children and they (the staff) were very friendly to them .In all we enjoyed our evening out"

  • "When we first arrived, the service was excellent. As more table filled up, our waitress was nowhere to be found. I asked for more tea and finally had to fill my glass with water. By the time she arrived with my tea, I was over it. "

  • "I was very disappointed with the entrees. I had the skirt steak. It was thin, over-marinated, and overcooked. It tasted like liver. Nothing special about the sides, bland mash potatoes and spinach. On the positive side, we had a nice, reasonably priced bottle of wine and it was close to opera house where we were seeing a play. The wait staff went out of their to make sure everyone attending the play got out on time. My advice would be to avoid the entrees and stick to the burgers. "

  • "Our party of six was seated within 2 minutes of our reservation time. The attention we received from order taking to food service was excellent. We had tickets to the opera across the street as did many other patrons, so promptness was a must. Discount parking in the garage below was another draw. We've dined there previously and plan to do so again."

  • "Great for a pre - show dinner or drinks as well as happy hour after work! American comfort food menu. Sister restaurant is Catch 35. Our server was a little over - the - top but still a great experience. "

  • "Lloyd's has been doing a great job of serving the West side of downtown for many years. They always deliver good food and service at a reasonable price. "

  • "The location to the Lyric Opera House couldn't have been more perfect. We arrived very late due to traffic into the city. We called ahead to tell them we would be late and they held our table for us. When we arrived, our server gave us food recommendations that could be prepared quickly to get us to the theatre on time. The food came quickly, tasted great, and we made it to the show. The prices were remarkably reasonable for a downtown restaurant as well. I would definitely go back again when not so rushed to enjoy the atmosphere and the food to its fullest."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "We had made a reservation for 5:15 but due to traffic had to change it to 5:45. Staff was very gracious and accommodated our request. We were seated promptly. Food was very good and served in a short amount of time after we ordered. It's a great place to eat before shows at the Lyric as Lloyd's is right across the street. Would eat there again."

  • "Five of us had reservations at 5 for dinner before the Sound of Music at the Lyric. we all had great meals, apetizers were awesome (shrimp) and we enjoyed the key lime pie. Service was excellent, waiter was really great at making the changes to the dishes we ordered. We got seats by the Wacker St windows and had a great view of the Lyric. The noise level was typical of most restaraunts this size but we didnt have any problem having a great time and great conversation. Beer and wine selection was okay. We had a terrific time and scored major kudos with our spouses. And, five of us ate and drank for $200. "

  • "The busboys provided better service than our waiter did. He took our order (for drinks & dinner) approximately 12 minutes after being seated, another person served the food; when I asked if they could send our waiter over for more drinks, that never happened. I don't know if he was purposely ignoring us. I finally had to flag him down so we could get the check. He never checked to see if our food was okay or if we needed anything else. If you want decent food at a reasonable price and poor service, this is the place to go. "

  • "Our order came wrong and they had to remake my granddaughters dinner which she then had only 10 minutes to eat before we left for the show. We were absolutely clear on our order!"

  • "We love to dine at Lloyds before or after a Lyric Opera event. It is so convenient and the food always delicious."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We went before the sound if music, it is close to the opera, convenient and it works. Not fancy food is ok to good. Nothing wrong just a more dated place, with decent food. Price is reasonable for loop. Good choice for pre opera"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Arrived with only an hour to be seated, dine, and head to the Lyric Opera, and our family still enjoyed a special experience at Lloyd's, with plenty of time to arrive and be seated before the show began. This was our first experience there, and we'd highly recommend it, especially before an evening at the Lyric Opera House. The service was great - efficient yet relaxing, and our server was genuinely friendly yet professional. Each of us tried something different from the menu, and each dish was delicious - braised beef gnocchi, blackened shrimp fettuccine, steak and crab cake, prime rib, and a burger."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We needed a place to eat that was close to the Lyric and this hit the spot. We were short on time but they got our food quickly and it was some of the best. My wife had the Mac and cheese with chicken which was excellent. I had the cake and steak which was the best of both I have had in a long time. Service was a little slower than I liked but they got us in and out in a timely fashion so we could make the play."

  • "WE had 7pm tickets at the Lyric, just across the street from Lloyd's so this is how we picked Lloyd's. We had a 5 pm reservation and we were able to have a leisurely dinner and arrive at the Lyric to pick up our tickets at 6:30. Our waiter wasn't terribly attentive............but he was fine as we didn't NEED a lot of attention and we think he was busy and doing his best to get others dinner before heading to the Lyric. Our food was delicious and hot. We would visit Lloyd's again!! We very much enjoyed their varied menu!!!"

  • "Seared tuna was grey. Our waiter was attentive but he said he was an actor and was quite loud. Nice voice but not in a restaurant. "

  • "We went here for dinner before going to the Opera house. Lloyd's is conveniently located. We were very pleasantly surprised by the very good food at moderate prices and the good and friendly service. I have gone here for lunch and for drinks after work before but not for dinner. You will not be disappointed."

  • "We came here before a show at the Lyric. Inspire of the fact that we were running very late, they still got us served and out in plenty of time to make the show. I had the blackened salmon with zucchini and mushroom veg side. Very good."

  • "We live in the downtown area and the location across from the Civic Opera House is the only reason we eat dinner here. Everything is good but nothing is memorable. Reasonably priced with decent service. They seem to do a brisk lunch business and the dinner menu leans in that direction."

  • "Great place for after symphony dining, meeting friends. Close to Ogilvie."

  • "We frequently dine here before attending performances at the Civic Opera House cater corner from the restaurant. Service is always quick and excellent and the food is very good and a good value in downtown dining. This time there were three of us and each enjoyed his or her entrée -- cedar salmon, steak and cake, and beef medallions. Two of us also enjoyed our starting soups, the third opted for no soup. We highly recommend Lloyd's as a great place to dine before crossing the street for a performance at the opera house. Enjoy."

  • "What a great combo. Now add great service and what an enjoyable experience. We were atending the opera so time played an important part. The service was friendly and attentive offering good suggestions without hovering. The special for the evening was excellent. We can't wait to return."

  • "We were extremely disappointed with Lloyd's. The food was bland at best. Service was horrible. And the construction in the building on a Saturday night made it feel like there was a bowling alley above you. Very disappointing. Don't waste your time or money there. "
