    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.

    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.

    Monet provided great service. We were passing through town on a college tour so I reserved a table for 7 at one of my favorites. When we arrived at 7pm the restaurant discreetly informed me my reservation was same time and place a week later. They were very accommodating and fit us in without a wait. I knew there was a reason I always stop at Rosebud Steakhouse when I'm in town.

If there was one less than positive thing - there was bit a surf & turf option on the menu. I would defiantly eat here again and wouldn't shy away from a group dinner either.

    Unfortunately, the restaurant was out of the lollipop lamb chops and could not really accommodate what I was wanting to eat. However, the server was more than great and was very remorseful that my meal turned out to be a glass of wine (one star on food only because I did not taste any). The portions are huge and looked delicious. This is not a great place for a traveler who cannot eat all at once or who cannot take food back to the hotel. I would like to return with a large party and empty stomach, this is a classic steakhouse with great ambience and service.

    The food and service were both wonderful. The prices are what you'd expect from a Chicago steakhouse. My wife and I split a steak and it was just right. Our server, Michael, was terrific. When he reviewed the menu with us, he wasn't pretentious at all. In fact, when he finished explaining the daily specials and the regular menu items, he even pointed out that the burgers are terrific. As for the sides, he suggested that we split a half-size salad, and split a side of the sauteed mushrooms. All of his suggestions were right on the mark! The location is great as it is just 2 blocks from the John Hancock Building. We'll definitely come back.

    This was a wonderful experience for our daughters birthday dinner. The food was absolutely amazing. We had the steaks and shared the generous side items that were deliciously and wonderfully prepared. Our friendly server sliced up our steak and individually placed it on our plates by our table as we were all sharing the generously proportioned delicious steaks. A must recommend restraunt and we will be returning next time we are in the city.

    Took a friend from out of town to the Rosebud Steakhouse for her birthday. I have never been disappointed by any of the Rosebud Restaurants and their Steakhouse was no exception. The waiters (we had two!) were kind, informative, and made excellent recommendations. There were 3 of us and we shared two entrees and an appetizer. Accommodating the sharing was not questioned, and in fact, was recommended. In turn, we were all able to sample a few different menu items. A great night out, the way dining SHOULD be. I will most certainly frequent again!
