Was a nice place, we were looking for somewhere to eat that was close to the Rosemont Theater and this was right next door. Prices are food, nice variety of food choices, but the host would not seat us at the 4 top table we wanted, just because it was not set up for four people, we offered to move a setting over and he said we could not, so we were sat at a larger table and had to talk louder than we wanted to hear each other. Nt even very crowded, that it would have made a difference.

Parking was expensive. We had to pay extra $18 for parking.

It was delicious! A friend and I went there before a concert at Allstate Arena. We ordered 4 tapas and each had a main dish. We shared humus and baba ganoush, greek meatballs, and falafel and all of it was great!
I had the paella, which was full of seafood and not too spicy, and my friend had steak and potatoes. Everything was perfect.
We will be going back because their entire menu looked great!

Tapas near ORD
Fresco 21 is a good fnd. Unusual to have good Mediterranean fare in a major airport hotel (InterContinental at ORD). Excellent variety of colr and hot tapas and entrees. Enjoyed the ambiance, excellent service and good pace...all at reasonable prices. Favorite dishes were the shrimp, Paella and BBQ lamb.

Limited selection but great food
Food is excellent. Prices are reasonable. Our waiter Sid was fantastic.
He recommended some very good dishes and was very attentive.

Good food, spotty service
Once our waiter discovered we were going to do tapas and not order the NY strip steak special he seemed to lose interest in us. We ended up having to order dessert from the busboy.

The ambiance was lovely, the food was delicious, and the cocktails were quite good. We decided to order from the topas menu for dinner rather than ordering entrees, it was fun to share various tastey small plates. The booths offer more privacy and our great for those wanting to converse over lunch or dinner. Hotels restaurants are not always among the best that a city has to offer, but I believe Fresco 21 is one of Rosrmont's hidden gems.

A first time but not the last time
An excellent selection of mediterranian cuisine, that was nicely presented at the table and a superb treat for the palate.

Nice find near O'Hare
Attached to the Intercontinental Hotel in Rosemont, Fresco 21 had complimentary valet on Sunday. It's contemporary in decor with calming colors. Daily specials are available and the menu is gluten-free and dairy-free friendly. Food was freshly prepared, very flavorful, and nicely presented. We ordered 3 entrées and a few tapas dishes for five and had plenty to eat. The panna cotta with candied hazelnuts is excellent.

I did not have high hopes for a hotel restaurant, but the menu looked great online, so I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. The food was wonderful and the waitress was extremely attentive and provided great suggestions as well. Great restaurant!

Great choice for a change
Great choice for a change of pace from the steaks & chops in Rosemont. Attached to the Intercontinental hotel, it's another well-above average "hotel" restaurant that has a creative menu with a Mediteranian flare. Octopus appetizer was great and for a main dish, try the paella. Intense flavors without being overblown with largess.

As a tapas-style eatery, Fresco
As a tapas-style eatery, Fresco 21 is many steps up from the majority of airport hotel restaurants you will encounter. I applaud their efforts to move away from the tried-and-true - but oh so tired - traditional offerings found on most hotel menus. Many of the tapas, such as duck confit topped with fried egg on a crispy polenta cake, are outstanding.
Although Fresco 21 would likely have difficulty playing in the major leagues against power-house restaurants in the downtown Chicago core, it has no problem holding its own in the Rosemont area near O'Hare. This small airport hotel restaurant shines.

We stumbled upon the place on a Thursday evening, which happened to be two for one on their wood fired pizza! It was the best dining experience I've had in months, for $16!

This review has no title ;-)
Went to Fresco 21 to celebrate a friend's birthday. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant and bar were not busy. This was a surprise as the parking garage was a madhouse. I wasn't sure if all of us would get a spot. Ironically I chose this place over one at the MB because I know the parking there is ridiculous.
There were a few missteps along the way but the restaurant made them right. One of them I attribute to miscommunication. The other was an overcooked steak. My date did not want to have the improperly cooked steak thrown away and was willing to eat it. The manager had a complete new dinner sent to the table with the steak cooked correctly and allowed us to take the overcooked steak home.
Modern, elegant dining room.
