  • Business Dinner with Great Food and Service

    Great experience, overall. We had a business dinner there and the waiter was very attentive, helpful and coordinated a strong team of servers to provide a great meal. Their signature steak, a bone-in filet mignon, was well prepared and the sides were quite good; some were unusual, like the "Corn Brulee", which was a corn custard with toasted parmesan.

    We came downtown to see Bob Dylan. A great deal of time was spent researching various "name"restaurants and their menus before we made our reservation. Rosebud Prime's location and menu spoke to us, so it was selected for our 4:00 P.M. pre-show dinner. From the time we crossed the threshold to the time we finally made our exit, Rosebud Prime delighted us with wonderful food. We knew we had discovered and enjoyed a real slice of Heaven. Visit once and you will return again, and again, and again. Thanks to all who make Rosebud Prime such an exceptional place to dine! Five Stars!

    When we arrived, we were seated way back in the corner by the band, even though there were many tables still open........and remained open for a long time. Also, our chopped salad was drenched in dressing, so it was soggy and bland. We have no interest in returning to this restaurant.

Our server Eric was attentive and made sure that everything was just right. Next time we are in Chicago we will definitely be stopping by again.

    I arrived with a group of 8, for a business lunch. When our server asked if he could put together an array of appetizers for the table I agreed. He immediately suggested shellfish (as the only option,) at that point I was uncomfortable to ask for other options. He proceeded to choose the most expensive items from the raw bar for our table. He did not put one single "appetizer" on the plate. Less than half of my guests ate the raw bar option. When we needed to leave prior to the check arriving, I tried to hand the server my credit card but he disappeared for almost 10 minutes, only to bring me a bill which I turned around and handed him the credit card. My guests already left for another appointment and I wasn't able to walk them out.

    Steak was great. Sides way to large for 2 better for 4. Wine list out of date, had wrong year listed. Given the new and old menues and had to ask which was current. For an upper end restaurant these mistakes should not be made.

    I made my reservation in advance. I had a 12:30pm lunch time meeting. No table. No Table. No Table. Ask a question about the table... No eye contact. Finally seated 30 minutes late. Let's eat.... Ordered the Seafood Salad. The Wait Staff said it was the best thing on the menu. I think ..Great... It does not need to be cooked since I have lost time waiting for my table and my business guest has other appointments as well. The salad comes.....two shrimp...one egg....one salmon filet...maybe something else in the pile....and six pounds of iceberg lettuce. ICEBURG lettuce....all for $28 bucks... Needless to say I will never go back.

    We had a 5:30 Sunday night reservation, with plenty of time before a 7:30 show. The hostess noted that the reservation showed it was my wife's birthday. The place was uncrowded but we were offered the table right next to the hostess stand, which we declined, and then one next to the wait stand, which we accepted, not wanting to be obnoxious. The waiter took our drink order and we said we wanted to take our time. He pushed us when he served them, and then three more times before we finally relented and ordered dinner. The bone-in filets were wonderful. He forgot the birthday celebration, plopped the check down with our coffee, never offering a dessert menu, let alone the customary freebie. My fifth and probably last visit this year.

    Rosebud Prime was an almost random choice amongst the many restaurants in the Chicago Loop area - and turned out to be a good one! My steak was dry-aged for 21 days (pretty standard for a nice steakhouse), and was perfectly prepared... a really good steak. Try them for a special occasion!

    The bone in rib eye was very good. However the beer batter onion rings had WAY too much batter and grease (thin strip of onion was 3/4 inch thick with greasy, fried batter). The onion soup was poor (I am an onion soup fan and order or make it myself often, would never order this one again.). the service was slow until we complained, then it was prompt. Noise level was on the high side but not intolerable. The wine list is good with some top wines (94-95 pts range and some 91-92) but priced at about 2.5X retail, and a few low end wines that are very reasonable if you are on a tight budget. Overall, OK but would not go back with so many excellent steak houses in Chicago.

    My wife and I found Rosebud on my Poynt APP on my BlackBerry. The restaurant is warm with rich woods inside and they also have an outdoor dining area that we unfortunately could not take advantage of due to the weather. They have an ample wine list and knowledgeable wait staff. The food is fantastic, having my filet prepared perfectly with wonderful side dishes that are served a-la-cart. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Had a simple meal there....got the special which was an 8oz filet topped with 4oz of crab meat and béarnaise sauce and a glass of Malbec. Tried a piece of the steak on its own and it was average for what you'd expect from a top steakhouse, but was excellent with the crab and béarnaise. This was my first time at this restaurant so would definitely go back the next time I'm in Chicago. Restaurant had nice ambience and service was professional.

    We went to Rosebud on a Sunday night. It was less than 1/3 full. Although we were seated in a booth, we had continuous traffic as the wait staff buzzed by and set up trays next to our table as they were serving the other two tables on our side of the restaurant. The food was just okay and not on par with the prices they demand. My steak was undercooked. We were not asked if our steaks were cooked to our satisfaction when they were delivered to the table. The potatoes were uninspired. Our server went through the motions and seemed ready to bolt into the night so she could watch Survivor. The only survivors were the three of us in our dinner party. Will never go back there again.

    A group of my friends decided to go out to eat last minute and this was the place we selected based on good reviews from another person. Making the reservation 20 minutes before we got there, through OpenTable, was super easy. We walked right in and immediately received the best treatment. The food was great! My steak was perfect! We ordered sides that were served a la carte so we were extremely stuffed...lol. Our server was great! He suggested most of our meal choices of which we were extremely satisfied. I will be going back to this place really soon. I can't stop thinking about their mac and cheese.

The steaks were top rated, prepared and presented in a first class manner. The side dishes were "family style" and delicious. Our waiter was a gem.

    We had a 7:30 reservation, however we showed up at 7 and they seated us right away. Our waiter was Christopher and he was excellent in helping us choose a wine for my wife who does not usually care for red wines.(She does not care for the bitterness) He was able to find a red that she truly enjoyed. The atmosphere was excellent with live music near the bar. Ordered the Rose Buds signature bone in filet w/ wild mushrooms and the grilled steak with onions. We split the Truffled scallop potatoes. All were excellent!!!
