    We made our first trip to Rosebud on 11/20 @ 5 p.m. dinner and dessert took two hours and our waiter, Michael was wonderful. He really took his time explaining the menu and what items could be shared. Will definitely be returning!

    We have been to Rosebud Steakhouse many times. It is always a wonderful experience. From the person at the door, to the bartender to wait staff, they all know their jobs well and make it a very enjoyable evening. Food is always great. The steaks are the headliner but there is always a very nice selection of seafood.

    There were three of us and we all had great dinners. The appetizer called lobster escargot was exceptional. Instead of snails lobster meat was used. It was wonderful. The steaks were done to perfection. The long bean as a side were great. It was the second time we were there. There is a new chef and the food was done to perfection.

    First and foremost, the food was excellent. Our party of 4 enjoyed appetizers, Caesar salad, shared the bacon and cheddar potatoes, broccoli and asparagus. The steaks (all filets for us) were cooked to perfection. Service was attentive. The only downside is they were out of the bottle of wine I selected, but it was easy to find a second choice due to there extensive wine list

    It may not be at the top of the best steakhouses in Chicago but it is definitely up there with them. I had the petite filet and you could cut it with your fork. Excellent flavor and tender, tender, tender, I like it rare and it was perfect. My guest had the bone in and it was perfect and finished it without even remembering that he mentioned he wasn't to hungry. I've been to Rosebud quite a few times and they always impress me.

    Service was wonderful and very accomodating. They couldn't do enough for us. We had Veal milanese which was presented beautifully, but I felt could have been better seasoned. It was a huge portion, especially after the fabulous "made at the table" caesar salad and interesting brread basket with cheese lavash that was thin and addictive. My husband had dover sole which was boned at the table and he said it was wonderful.A la cart accompaniments were brussel sprouts, asparagus, fabulous potatos au graten topped with slices of brie. For dessert, apple pie ala mode and a light, coconut cake. It was a special meal with too much food. They are known for their steaks. The restaurant is a little pricey but you get your money's worth.

    I called the restaurant before I made a reservation to ask if they offered a children's menu. I was told "yes." Upon arrival, I found out they did not. They did have macaroni and cheese but it is not "regular" macaroni and cheese. The food was high priced, which I am fine with for great food, but the food was mediocre. Our server practically ignored us and hovered over a table beside us because the wine seemed to be flowing at that table. The meal took over two hours and we didn't order dessert. Disappointing.

    We always book a table at Rosebud Steakhouse whenever we are in Chicago. Love the food and ambiance though it's impossible to have a conversation...too loud! Gave it a four this time as one of our steaks wasn't cooked properly...they are usually spot on! Also, bottle of wine we ordered was not the year listed on menu. Makes a difference with red wine..

    Brought my dad here while he was visiting - dinner at Rosebud is a tradition for us every time he comes to Chicago. Had the bone-in filet Oscar style - tons of crab meat and huge asparagus - the steak was cooked to perfection! My dad had the bone-in rib eye and ate every last bit of meat. The truffle tater tots were wonderful and not to be missed. We also tried the Mac and cheese this time and it was ok, not great. Tasted a little overcooked and not very creamy - will be sticking to tater tots only next time. Overall great meal!

    We have been at this restaurant many times however this time found the service to be a bit sloppy. We were a party of six. We asked for a round table near the window, it was there and ready when we arrived however we were directed to the table next to it which was set up for seven. After we sat down they took the extra chair away and put it at the table originally reserved for us! We were celebrating two birthdays which we told them about when we made the reservations. After spending upwards of 800.00 they didn't even send a piece of cake!

    when coming here you realize two things--this place is noisy and is not a bargain price wise. But you do not really come to Chicago to get a deal and the portions are large and the food is good. I had written an earlier review about an excellent experience I had here earlier in the summer. My experience was not so good this time around and it really centered on the difference in service. Waiter we had last time was really good and paid a lot of attention to us. we were not as fortunate this time around. Our waitress was not good --did not explain the fish special they had, did not offer any wine list suggestions and what was the worst was when she began taking our order, she stopped and served another table--totally unpleasant

    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.
