    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    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.

    I eat out for business and pleasure all the time. I would label myself as a foodie.. I wanted Rosebud to be great, as I was entertaining guests. I am sorry to tell you the food was very mediocre. We had scallops, Mac & Cheese, Jalapeño Hash, Cauliflower Gratin (with no gratin!), and Bone-in Filet. The entire meal was entirely mediocre...

    Rosebud restaurants are consistently good in service, food, and quality. This was a miss all the way around. Drinks took a long time, appetizer came cold with uncooked bacon, salads over dressed with aweful dressing, and food just bland.

    Was in Chicago dropping my son off to college. Chicago has so many wonderful steakhouses to choose from. Rosebud Prime must be at the top of the list. 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!!!

    We were visiting from Arizona and I had eaten at Rosebud on Rush with my husband previously and loved it. I took my high school boys here for dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate and drank. The steaks, broccoli, asparagus, chicken, wine, and salads were fabulous. Portions were big and even my two kids could not finish their meals. The service was wonderful. I highly recommend this place.

    We chose Rosebud Prime for our pre-theater dinner and were not disappointed. We always try to dine somewhere new before we see a show on State Street, but this might have to be a repeat. restaurants. Wine choices were sufficient and not overwhelming. Service was prompt and always available, yet not hovering.

    My wife and I had a great experience at Rosebud Prime on Saturday night. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the live jazz band set the perfect mood. We started with the Maryland crab cake and the bacon wrapped scallops. The Maryland crab cake was large enough to be an entire meal (perfectly prepared). We then had the filet seasoned in garlic and then finished the night by sharing the key lime pie. It was a perfect meal for a perfect night. We loved our experience. The only issue we had was there was a slight longer delay between our salad and the entrée than we liked, but it was only a slight bother.

    We wanted to take our friend out for a very special dinner after he received his degree. He and his wife had never been out to restaurant of this caliber before. We ordered the Steamed mussels and Alaskan King Crab for appetizers, the Tomahawk steaks, Delmonico steak, and Jumbo Pan Seared Scallops for entrees. Every bite just melted in our mouths. Our waiter Adam was the best I have ever seen. He was extremely knowledgable about the entire menu and he had a wonderful sense of humor. We were impressed that even though this is an upscale restaurant, the atmosphere was not at all stuffy. The waiters all wore tuxedos but made us feel like we were at home. If I ever return to Chicago, I will most definitely be wanting a reservation.

    Food is good but Steaks are expensive. My wife and I split a Tomahawk at $88. Nice piece of meat but not for that price. Waiter cut it in 2, slicing the bone onto the floor. Was reheated and brought back out. Baked potato undercooked. We were going to take the bone home. But it was taken off the table without given the option. Great location in Theater district. Overall I enjoyed my meal.

    We went to Rosebud Prime for a special occasion because the last time we dined here it was exceptional. This time we were not as impressed. Rosebud is priced as a high end steak place, so the steaks should always be perfect. Ours were overcooked. Service was OK, but not exceptional. Hopefully, this was an aberration, because we have really enjoyed Rosebud Prime in the past.
