    This place was good but I think it was a little overpriced for the quality of food being served. For the amount of money I spent, I could have went to Chama Gaucha and had much, much better quality steak. But overall, this place was good.

    Great steak, prepared perfectly but beware: this place is very, very expensive. Everything I ate was delicious but the wedge salad didn't even have bacon on it and was drowned in salad dressing. A VERY good blue cheese dressing, but it overwhelmed the lettuce. And at $11 it seems way, way overpriced. Filet was butter tender, grilled asparagus was crisp and flavorful. The decor is dated, old-school steak house; etched mirrors, chrome, mirrored walls.

    From cocktails to salad to entree to wine, the food was wonderful and the service excellent. The maitre d' overheard us wishing each other "happy anniversary" and after dinner served us a delicious and generous slice of white mousse cake. It was a great way to celebrate 30 years and we agreed we should go to Rosewood more often.

    My husband and I were in the area for a concert and the Capital Grille was booked full. We decided to try this place and we were very pleased. The crab cake appetizer and beet salad were especially good. My halibut was rather flavorless but fit the bill for a lighter meal before sitting at the concert. Wine selection very good. Most notable for us was the excellent server who went out of his way to accommodate us knowing we had to be out of there by a certain time. Other staff we encountered were very friendly. The atmosphere was lively but we could still hear each other talk and our booth very comfortable. Overall I would recommended Rosewood.

    A good friend recommended we try this and so glad we did. Husband had delicious prime rib --probably best meat in years. A vegetarian I was a little concerned at first but settled on incredibly delicious bass with avocado and salsa (want that recipe). Salads were great too Wait staff helpful without being pushy Dave had great suggestions Jim worked as diligently as anyone making you feel like a regular great find

    The inside and the outside do not match! When I pulled up I thought oh how very 1990ish then I walked into a lovely warm inviting place. The wood paneled walls help keep the sound levels low and give a masculine feel to the place. The food was wonderful I had the 3 kinds of white fish, my husband a steak and both were over the top good. We were their for my birthday and the dessert Carlos brought was so good I can only say to pace yourself so you too may enjoy it ( the banana cream pie was wonderful as was the apple bag and the cinnamon ice cream!) A wonderful gem I had been missing, glad Open table helped me find it!

    My husband and I and another couple dined at Rosewood Restaurant Saturday evening. It was absolutely outstanding!! The service is top notch and the food is by far the best we have ever eaten. The appetizers, beet salad, filets and double cut pork chop were amazing! The owner Jim stops at your table and says hello and chats for a bit, such personal attention! We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and they brought us a delicious vanilla and white chocolate cake! It was to die for!!! An absolute must if you want a wonderful dinner and evening out!

    Liked the high booth setting. The filet mignon (9 ounces) was excellent but would hope that the restaurant would offer a 6 ounce size. The rib eye steak special was great too, but pricey at $68.00 for 24 ounces. Overall, a great dining experience with a wonderful waiter. The bar was nice and spacious, and has beautiful decor.

    The Rosewood has been and will continue to be a wonderful restaurant with outstanding service with super friendly owners and staff that is matched by its fresh and delicious food. There isn't anything you could pick off the menu that wouldn't be amazing, as it is all some of the best food the Chicago area has to offer. My family has enjoyed many meals here as well as had my wedding reception in their beautiful ballroom and all of our guests raved about the food, service and decor. You cant go wrong having a meal or an event at The Rosewood!!!

    We were greeted by the owner, Jim Mandas, upon arrival. He made us feel as if we were old friends coming for dinner at his home. We held our wedding reception at Rosewood 5 years ago and enjoy dining there when we're in the area. The staff is friendly and well informed. When we couldn't decide on a wine for dinner, we were given a tasting to assist in our decision. I had the lamb 2 ways(my favorite!), my husband and our friend had filet mignon and our other guest had the fish special - all of which we enjoyed immensely! Jim came over during dinner to ask how everything was and thanked us for allowing them to serve us. We dined and chatted for approximately 4 hours and never felt rushed. A wonderful experience all around!

    The food was average for the caliber of food our group has enjoyed in the Rosemont and downtown chicago areas. We selected 2 wines that were not available but we're on the wine menu. Our table seemed to be in a contested area as two members of the table often had their chair bumped by the waiter attending other tables. Food servings were huge and we appreciated the comped dessert for our table in lieu of the wines but we had eaten so much by then we couldn't truly enjoy them

    I have traveled to Rosemont regularly for work and find The Rosewood to be a great option for business dinners. Food is first rate, and the environment is upscale but very comfortable. Wonderful grilled octopus appetizer with white beans, spinach, olives and a lemon olive oil sauce. I could have had it again as an entree! Potato gratin had more cream than I usually like, but that is just my preference. Look forward to coming back.
