Diner Reviews
  • "Food was ok, nothing to write home about. Our waitress insisted on splitting the bill instead of us writing down each amount for each card to save her the trouble. I would travel a bit more to find better Italian food."

  • "Great Italian food for the whole family. My kids and husband were able to have their pasta that they wanted and I had a fabulous summer Fish salad. Lots of options for the whole family"

  • "What a wonderful restaurant! Delicious homemade pastas, service was attentive and the cannoli's were to die for."

  • "When visiting Chicago it is always a pleasure to dine at Rosebud. Great Italian dishes and consistent excellent quality. One or our favorites. And with a name like Primo Gigante I know my Italian."

  • "Loved the feel of this place, heavy on tourists (summer Saturday night) but felt like a local joint. Had a pasta and seafood special that tasted like they had prepared each ingredient individually--as every piece of fish and shellfish within the dish was perfectly cooked. Service was prompt, attentive and attractive... a good combo in a busy place where details could have gotten overlooked but didn't."

  • "We had a great experience at Rosebud on Rush. This is a solid value for for downtown Chicago. We arrived slightly early for our reservation and we enjoyed drinks in the downstairs bar. We were seated on time at a nice table. Place was very busy. We had an excellent server. Food was every bit as good as the Hill in St. Louis. Fried Spicey Calamari was outstanding! The palce was energetic and loud, but a good Chicago vibe. Bttom line- great meal and excellent service!"

  • "All of the Rosebud Restaurants seem to share a very important trait. They focus on making sure that the customer gets what they want. There is never any rush ("take your time" was repeated to us several times). When we wanted to split appetizers and entrees, there was no hesitation. As a matter of fact, our server even encouraged us to split entrees since we had enjoyed large appetizers. We never had to wonder if we would ever get any more bread or water as those items were quickly replenished. And of course, the reason one goes to the restaurant in the first place, the food, was delicious and well presented. Add in the fact that the prices are very reasonable and affordable and you have a great combination. Enjoy Rosebud on Rush."

  • "We came here so that my daughter could have gluten free pasta and she loved her entree, although it came without the chicken added as requested. (Waitress brought grilled chicken on the side once we pointed it out). I ordered the lasagne which was just ok. Waitress seemed tired and put out a bit by having to wait on anyone. Very energetic and noisy place; stereotypical Italian restaurant. With so many great Italian restaurants in Chicago I would probably try something else next time."

  • "Made reservation via Open Table from Rosebud website which was very convenient and easy. We arrived 10 minutes early and our table was ready and were seated right away. Waitstaff was prompt and friendly. Food was great and we were out in under an hour. Overall, great dining experience for our family of 5."

  • "Rosebuds was a wonderful experience for my family. Their minestrone soup was scrumptious along with their marinara sauce they had on their food. Their portions are very large-so don't hesitate to share!"

  • "We eat at Rosebud a lot and this is the first time I have been disappointed. The ceaser salad dressing tasted bottled. I had a side of steamed asparagus and received four stalks and the waiter was disappointing"

  • "First time in Chicago since 1986. Selected Rosebud from a number of recommended restaurants. Assume it was a poor choice rather than representive of Chicago."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was our second visit. The first was lunch and this one was dinner. Both times our food was outstanding along with the wait staff being very attentive. Would definitely recommend!"

    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Looking for an intimate, ambient setting for a leisurely conversation over a great meal? This is not the place for you. Hectic, "pack-'em-in/move-'em-out" approach overshadows earnestly attentive servers and better-than-average food. Loud, loud, loud. VERY crowded and elbow-to-elbow seating. Food not all that. But, given the chaos they are forced to work in, the service was exceptional."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We have visited a few other times and have always had amazing food and outstanding service. This visit was for our honeymoon and we ended up leaving early. Our waiter came by the table a total of 2 times, our drinks were never refilled, we waited well over 20 minutes for the waiter to take our order (another waiter saw us waiting and ended up taking our order instead), and not once did our waiter say anything about it being our honeymoon. I was so mad that we took our food shortly after getting it and left. The food was great, but that waiter really spoiled our experience. But we've had a great experience every other time, so we will be back."

  • "Rosebud on Rush has the charming feel of an old fashioned restaurant with great service and food. Attentive, delicious, complete are all words that come to mind in this pleasant and flavorful dining experience. While the bruschetta appetizer was very good but not great, all other aspects of the meal were quite outstanding, including some of the best salads we've had. Also great chicken Vesuvio and a tasty swordfish that was seemingly poached (not broiled), all was excellent."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Overall, it was good. The food was very good and voluminous. Only complaint was the waitress. She didn't come to our table for about 10 minutes after we said we were going to look at the wine list. Finally she comes back to take the wine and dinner order at the same time. I told her to bring the wine first as any good waiter knows. Appetizer was delivered on a tray and left near our table for the waitress to serve. She felt it was more important to move a table 5 inches for an annoying old man behind us and left the hot appetizer sitting on the tray. "

Service was slow and in order to get some parmaezon cheese you had to hunt for servers...some of the pastas were Luke warm...a little disappointing for one of our favorite restaurants for many years"

One at our table at the Garbage Salad which was very good, as well as their veal dishes are top notch. Traveling all over the US, I look forward to Rosebuds every time I visit Chicago. There are so many great restaurants in Chicago but Rosebuds has to be on my list!"
