The prices were not only more than competitive, but the portions were more than ample. We will split a sandwich the next time we go to the Park Grill.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayI took my mom on Mothers Day and we had a great time. Food was great and the waiters.

My mom enjoyed herself aswell and was very very happy!!! #Yum :-)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for lunch, enjoy the viewIf you're fortunate enough to secure the outdoor dining and it's a beautiful/sunny Chicago day -- or if you're just inside the windows, you'll have a gorgeous view of the park and Michigan Avenue. Food is good. Prices reasonable.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMConvenient, comfortable, classy.Park Grill is so well located...near the Art Institute....on Michigan Avenue near a boulevard of beautiful flowers...and under the "Bean" in Millenium Park! Hard to beat that. Plus the food is great. And the staff amazingly friendly and competent. I'm an out-of-towner...but have been here many times. And can't wait to return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!This place was great! We were seated immediately despite being 15-20 minutes earlier than our reservation. The hostess took our coats and seated us. Our server was with us seconds later. My mom and I decided to order 2 appetizers and a salad to split. My favorite thing we had was the sausage flatbread. It was amazing! The steak salad was also superb. I liked the flavors in the prosciutto app, but it was a bit awkward to eat. They also have a fabulous olive spread they serve with the bread. If you are looking for a nice bottle of wine, you will probably find it here. They have an extensive selection. Another item of note, was they asked us if we were dining prior to seeing a show at the theater to make sure we were out on time.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMissed outdoor diningTheir website shows a lot of outdoor dining. When we got their that wasn't the case. Still a great lunch but was really looking forward to an outdoor spring lunch in Chicago5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food, well preparedReally good food, well prepared and presented, all served by a very attentive waitstaff. Great location: very convenient to the Art Institute, Orchestra Hall, and Millenium Park.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe come back many times. ExcellentWe come back many times. Excellent location, food service. Highly recommended.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food,convenient locationI picked Park Grill for a dinner with an out of town client, so that I could show him some quick highlights of Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue. It's perfectly situated for that and he loved the idea of the ice skating rink right along Michigan Avenue. Since we were there betwen seasons, neither the rink nor the outdoor cafe were set up, but with a little imagination, we could see it.
The food and service were great. We were there on a Monday night and it was very quiet, so the food came out fast - which was nice. I had the scallops and they were perfectly cooked. The butternut squash, kale and black lentils that came with the scallops were excellent, beautifully presented and a wonderful flavor and texture combination.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a business lunch atI had a business lunch at the Park Grill. The service and food were excellent, and I would go back. Entrees are pricey - but there are also less expensive options for lunch such as sandwiches and salads. I didn't expect such delicious food from a place that's practically tourist central. I had the salmon and YUM. Thanks Park Grill for the delightful experience!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur third visit, and althoughOur third visit, and although the first couple were great this was terrific. Wait staff was very helpful, friendly, personable and professional. The food was done perfectly.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was Marty. He figuredOur server was Marty. He figured out our situation right away [four old friends who hadn't seen each other for a long time] and paced our lunch perfectly.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and food. WeGreat service and food. We had the Cali Omelette and the Crabcake Eggs Benedict and both were excellent. This is a very convenient location for the Art Institute, Millenium Park and the Chicago Architecture Foundation tours. The only thing we didn't like was the loud noise level; both the music and the diners' voices were loud.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food as always,Wonderful food as always, and great friendly service !3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in Chicago for EasterWe were in Chicago for Easter weekend and went to the Park Grill for brunch. We had wonderful, friendly, attentive service. The food was delicious and plentiful without being heavy or too filling. I had crab cakes benedict, fruit and bacon. The ambience was bright, light and fun without being too noisy. All in all I highly recommend this place. In nice weather there is plenty of seating for outdoor dining. It's located next to "the Bean" so much to see in the area. Enjoy!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEnded our Easter weekend downtownEnded our Easter weekend downtown at the Park Grill which was perfect location, kid friendly and brunch food choices! The kids buffet was amazing. We reminisced about our fun weekend and watched the Hawks game with a Bloody Mary from the Bloody Mary bar. Everyone was happy! The reservation process through open table was amazingly simple.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, service, and presentationThe food, service, and presentation are getting better all the time.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHideaway in the parkThis was a great spot for my husbands 60th birthday celebration with our 20-something kids. The kids were impressed and our foodie son and his friend enjoyed every bite (as we ALL did). We coincidentally dined on Wine Wednesday, where wine bottles are half off. So we enjoyed a lovely bottle of Malbec for $26. And the total check didn't kill us. The fact that this restaurant is under the park gives it an intimate, hideaway feel. Our server was attentive and very personable. The check didnt kill us. The evening was great.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for an early dinnerWe went for an early dinner before a play...service and food were excellent.

I selected the Winter Risotto and it was Wonderful!! It was Wine Wednesday and all bottles of wine were 50% off. Food was tasty and staff was attentive and respectful of our time constraints.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a lunch meeting,Great place for a lunch meeting, quiet but still had a good energy / atmosphere. Good food, nice looking outside and seeing the ice rink.12/13/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat service and ambienceAlways a good choice, but especially nice during the holidays when the skating rink and the decorations are up. I had a great steak and my wife had equally good scallops. My mother-in-law ordered the same scallop dish and it was gritty. This can happen with scallops, but they took care of it at once with no questions asked - bravo!11/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
