    We went to Rosebud 4/32 anniversary. We found the service to be great the food to be excellent. The staff was very gracious and they were very kind to us. We just found the whole experience to be an outstanding way to spend our 32nd anniversary. Thanks to the staff and management at rosebud for a great evening.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Rosebud. My husband's filet was absolutely delicious. However when our guest's steak was overcooked, the waiter balked at taking it back - a big no-no! His 2nd steak was much better. Atmosphere was nice but too noise for good conversation.

    We always enjoy the vibrant but cozy surroundings of Rosebud. Steaks and ample sides are well prepared. The standout this time: our server, Marcus. Knowledgeable, warm and attentive. It's a wonderful place to stop in for dinner in the city.

    One of the more consistent steakhouse/Italian dining experiences in Chicago. Excellent, professional service. If you want to get away from the chains with your clients or family, and want to experience the "real" Chicago, it's hard to go wrong here.

    Long wait for food. Baked potato = cold . . . Steak = Poor quality . . . Truffled peas = heavy garlic. Owner approached us and we said, "it's alright", he simply nodded and walked away; he truly did not care. For quality = The Chicago Cut + Bavette's.

    The steak diane special and the the scallops were delicious. The sides really stole the show - the brussel sprouts , mashed potatoes steaming with cheese, and cauliflower au gratin made sure you didn't leave hungry. Big enough to share, and very flavorful. The restaurant gets REALLY crowded on the weekends but it is worth it. The wait staff is very nice.

    I used to frequent this Rosebud restaurant many years ago with great memories. This visit was memorable for the wrong reasons. Paying top dollar for steaks in Chicago, I expected a lot more - Service should be on point - Stiff drinks quickly served - High quality steaks and sides I will be going elsewhere as there are many better steak options in Chicago.

    We visited here during a recent trade show. We took customers in for a nice dinner, but the restaurant was so crowded, you could barely fit in between the tables. Even the wait staff had trouble serving the tables. On top of that, with the conversations and music, you could not hear people at the other end of the table. That was a disappointment. The food, however, was very good. Everyone commented that their meal was excellent. Service was also a dissappointment. They had two waiters covering the tables and that led to a lot of confusion. Drink orders missed, doubled, etc. For example, it took almost 20 minutes to get served a Diet Coke, while everyone else was served in 5. Wouldn't be my first choice for dinner in Chicago.

    Food was outstanding as was service. Timing of service was perfect- enough time to visit and enjoy cocktails and delicious salads but perfect wait time for dinner. Skirt steak was amazing and we tried the truffled tater tots for the first time and will always order them from now on. Food here has always been excellent. Highly recommend.

    I've been coming to this restaurant for years every time I visit Chicago. This time the waiter sounded good, but didn't perform. Food was late and part of the order came later and not cooked as requested. On a plus note this restaurant had the finest veal chop I every ate. Lean, tender and cooked to perfection. Forget the steaks, this is the top of my list.

    We come to Chicago about 3-4 times a year and often eat at Rosebud Steakhouse. They always have excellent steaks and first class service. Our only caveat this time was a young host who seemed a bit grumpy. We are a retired couple in our early sixties and when we go out to dinner we do not wish to be seated near families with small children, especially in expensive restaurants. When we asked to be seated at another table he reacted like we were making an unreasonable request. We don't appreciate attitude like that. There are plenty of other steak houses that would gladly accommodate our request!

    We've eaten dinner here before (our first date was here yrs ago:-) This visit was before the dinner hour. My wife inquired about having a dinner entree, & our server responded positively & relayed her request to the chef. A few sides were not prepared yet (a good sign that things are not kept warm). However, the steaks were good to go! The chef accommodated us with other side choices & we had a beautiful plate of sautéed spinach w/garlic; it was delicious. The ribeye was done to perfection & was very flavorful! We both had the French onion soup as an appetizer & it was also excellent. The 4 star rating is only because our first date experience at Rosebud was truly the high five event; that is why we return every time we visit Chicago.

    Best steak I ever had. My scond trip to Chicago and my second dinner at Rosebud. The servers were not talky, took the order, got the meal served, and didn't hoover around asking "how is everything" a thousand times. Desert was a huge serving of apple pie ala mode which, while delicious, was simply too much to eat. A wonderful experiance and I'd recommend Rosebud to every visitor to Chicago.

    Compared to the other Rosebud restaurants in Chicago, this one is is definitely my least favorite in terms of service and ambience. The food was fantastic, but the service was very slow and the room was dark and loud. The crowd seemed to be older groups and early diners; we sat down at 8PM and by 10 we were one of the only tables left. My family and I found it odd that they plated and served our side dishes which we ordered for the table. Also, the portions are huge; we ordered one wedge salad and it was more than enough for the three of us.

    Sat and had bread brought out with daily specials & wine list. Had fresh oysters from various locations including New Zealand Canada & Alaska. I ordered 2 of each w/ some amazing habanero sauce. I ordered the filet mingon black and bleu with a side of salmon and two a la carte jumbo shrimp. As I got to talk to our server Michael, I told him it was my birthday and upon the completion of my meal, he brought out a delicious complimentary chocolate cake with a candle on it for me to blow out. I must say I was surprised and very happy to feel so childlike as to blow out a birthday candle, it really made my night after all the wonderful birthday wishes I had received throughout the day.
