Rosebud on Rush
What a nice eveningThe food was awesome, the service was great, and we enjoyed our evening at Rosebud. The outdoor dining just added to overall ambience of the evening. Can't recommend this place any higher for a night of fantastic italian food.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good foodYou won't be dissappointed. Anything and everything on the menu is fantastic.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSoo much food!Great dining experience just know the portions are hearty so share or prepare to take home leftovers! The marinara was amazing as well!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWow what a cheesecake!An excellent dinner choice after work and before seeing a play at the Looking Glass Theatre just a few blocks away. Excellent service and a pleasant outside/covered seating area. The food was excellent, even for vegetarians like us. What's not to like? Cheese, Pasta and sauce - delicious. Lavazza cappucino and splitting a delicious enormous cheese cake for after. The cheesecake was so big, we thought there was some sort of mistake and they brought us the whole cake instead of just a piece! Overall this was a very pleasant experience at a reasonable price!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Dinner at RosebudWe truly enjoyed our meal at Rosebud on Rush. Dining with our teenage son can be interesting, but he immediately found a few menu items that interested him. We started with a double order of the seafood linguine and had the waiter divide it between the 3 of us as a 1st course. It was absolutely delicious! Actually, there would have been plenty for 4 or 5 diners as a primo piatto. Our salads and entrees were tasty....hard to go wrong with the extensive menu and great chefs. My only issue was the lighting, which was so dim I needed a candle to read the menu! We even requested a flashlight (which they could not locate). Felt like an old timer at that moment (which I am not!) but it really would be nice to have better lighting.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service; good foodWonderful server (Elden?). Chef prepared grilled calamarie by request and it was delicious. Everything we ordered we enjoyed and had more than enough for another meal each. Very generous portions to fit the price.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYum YumWow! What a pleasant surprise, came here for the first time last night with my dad (who's never been to Chicago) and we loved it! Great Italian food and atmosphere, I really don't know what some of these negative reviews were talking about... it's definitely worth checking out! Portions are HUGE, you will get what you pay for. Will be back :)4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early and theyWe arrived early and they were able to seat us right away. Food and service was excellent.
We would highly recommend.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Honeymoons!I made this reservation as part of a honeymoon trip that I planned for a friend. I sprung for three dinners at some pretty nice places around town and they said that THIS was the one that they liked the best. They absolutely loved everything about Rosebud on Rush. They loved the atmosphere and the special treatment (though I did advise the restaurant through the OpenTable comment section in the reservation process that this was a meal that was part of their honeymoon...so maybe that helped!). But they REALLY loved the food. I knew that this one would be a success as Rosebud is pretty much a Chicago tradition. Thanks, Rosebud, for making this meal the highlight meal of our friends' honeymoon!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSara from north carolinaWe choose at least one night at Rosebud on Rush every visit ti Chicago,it is predictably good and waitstaff is attentive. It has been very busy every time we have been there,,,and they use every square inch of space. I guess you could have a romantic spot...but we go mor for the food than the ambience. Highly recommen4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Meal on a Business TripThe service was impeccable; the food, delish. This was a treat after eating around downtown Chicago for a week while in town for business. The table-side house salad service was a great suggestion from our waiter, and my entree of ravioli was divine.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable dining esperienceMemorable Dining Experience. With early reservations we scored a great table with a round window view looking over the street. Food was top notch as was the wait staff. As we left the restaurant had filled up and I can see where it may be loud in some areas. For us... perfect dinner night.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Veal Parmesan was theThe Veal Parmesan was the best my husband has ever had and that's saying a lot because it is his favorite dish. Their caprese salad was fantastic, the balsamic was unsurpassed. Our only complaint was unavoidable - a very large loud group mad discussion over dinner nearly impossible.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI always like going to Rosebud.I always like going to Rosebud. The brick chicken is my favorite. I just wish they would get a bigger bourbon selection.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent and reliableAlways consistent and reliable for a great Italian dinner. The Alfredo sauce is second-to-none and I love the Eggplant Parmesan which can be hard to find. The portions are massive which can be good or bad depending on if you're really hungry or able to take it home - we were visiting and felt like we wasted a lot of food. The servers are attentive and knowledgeable - we love going here and consider it a neighborhood gem.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Italian BasicsGreat place to get good Italian food with a great red sauce. Ample serving sizes, good service, nice wine selection. We hit it most of the times we're in Chicago.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRosebud on Rush is a must!!!!The food was outstanding. The portions were big and very filling. I had the chicken parmesan and was delicious. My girlfriend had the lasgana and was better than mine. The lasagna was a big size and recommend it. The waiter gave us great service and was very very friendly. MAke reservations because it can get packed.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy children do not let meMy children do not let me go to Chicago without eating at Rosebud on Rush. Of course, they aren't dragging me. Always delicious and service always very good. Tried some new dishes this time and was perfect.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was great but quite noisy-food was great but quite noisy- second time being there- first on the lower level/bar area and this time on the upper inside dining area and both were quite noisy- notices it is a hard ceiling- they could stand to add some noise absorption material4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMust do Italian experience!Traditional Italian done right. Rosebud on Rush is a bustling, vibrant restaurant that lives up to expectation every time. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable and attentive (but not over bearing). There is no urgency to hurry you out the door, we had a leisurely relaxed meal that enabled us to take the time to really enjoy the quality that is Rosebud on Rush. Will definitely dine here again. P.S. reservation are highly recommended, as Rosebud hosts locals and tourists alike and gets busy).4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch service...? Hit or miss.It's rare to encounter awful service here, although I hate to say it but the last time I was in that's just what I got. I immediately got bad vibes from my server for brunch. The way he spoke to my brother and I, choice of words, flat out rude, I was embarrassed I took my out of town brother here to experience that?!... I hope that guy got replaced because I've been here plenty of times and he did not belong there!! Anyway this time around I was more at ease enjoying brunch. I will be back!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinately go there....the service was unbelievable! Extremely large portions, took home both appetizer and entre in a doggie bag (2 of us split an entre). LOVED the calamari appetizer. The lasagna was good, not amazing.
At first, they sat us in the lower level corner table... I was not very happy about that, but the service was so outstanding, that it didn't bother me after about 10 seconds.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways the place to go whenAlways the place to go when visiting chi town! Only sad part is where is the Parmesan cheese that goes with the bread and olive oil we had to ask for it...everything is better with cheese! Don't cheap out on the starting dish3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is to die for! TheThe food is to die for! The veal marsala melts in the mouth. Tiramisu was light and delectable.
