    For a hotel restaurant in Chicago, this place is very god in terms of price and quality of food / menu selection. I was impressed in terms of how well prepared the food actually was (including plating). Service was good even though they were quite busy and our water and coffee was consistently filled with regularity.

    When we (my customers and myself) arrived for dinner the restaurant was closed! The bar manager put us in a quiet room and we ordered from the bar menu. With that said the food was good and it was quiet. However, that does not make up for the meal and arrangements i had thought i reserved. Sally Perrin

    I had read previous poor reviews of Shor, but my group did not want to leave the convention center so we went to Shor. The restaurant was approximately 25% full, but the waitstaff appeared to be completely overwhelmed. We waited 1 1/2 hours for our food. I ordered Mahi Mahi on the recommendation of the server, and it was nearly inedible. It's worth the cab ride or walk to leave McCormick Place. Shor was not a good experience

    When doing business in/around McCormick Place the food options are unfortunately a bit limited - Shor however is a great place to go when you want to sit down with clients or guests and have a nice meal in a comfortable setting. Pricing is as expected but the food quality and the service are wonderful.

    We arrived into Chicago late in the evening and ate at Shor principally because we were staying at the Hyatt that evening. The food was quite good, but pricey, as one might expect. The service was congenial, although somewhat erratic. The wine list was adequate.I'm sure Chicago has much better restaurants to offer, but for those pressed for time and staying at the hotel, Shor offers an easy avenue for acquiring a decent meal at downtown prices.

    Food was okay, but the service was outstanding! My appetizer was really good, but the shrimp in my pasta dish were over-cooked and tasted off. However, the staff realized that I hadn't eaten it and inquired why. When I explained why, they removed the dish from my bill. (I ordered off the menu.) My husband and stepson seemed to enjoy the buffet - especially the dessert. Great ambience.

    If your staying at the Hyatt regency or attending a conference at the McCormick conference center it's a great sit down option since there is really nothing else around. My group got the dinner buffet and everyone loved it because it had a good variety of options. The buffet was $20 per person but was not listed on the menu. The service was slow because they were under staffed and if we hadn't got the buffet I'm not sure we world have made our event in time. This hotel is very nice but they struggle to serve timely. I attended an event which had 15,000+ people attending (many staying at the hotel) and felt they could have done a better job of planning for the volume of people.

    Attending a show at McCormick Place and staying at the Hyatt made this a perfect choice after a long day at the show. Nice menu. I had the seared scallops which were cooked perfectly. The mushroom risotto that it came with the very tasty, but the rice was undercooked. My server accommodated me with asparagus on the side. Excellent service (fine dining style). Nice crusty warm Italian bread with a small carafe of olive oil was a nice touch. I would certainly eat here again.

    We were at a conference at McCormick Place and wanted something to eat after the last evening event. Earlier in the week we met a friend here for lunch - good food, fast seevice - but dinner was an entirely different experience. The atmosphere of the place changes with just a few slight adjustments to the lighting and pace of the meal. Again there was a option for a buffet or you could order off the menu.. We decided upon the menu and were not disappointed. We shared the spinach dip appie and my husband ordered the chicken dish, I the steak salad. Both were nice size portions, well seasoned and excellent! Our server was attentive, very personable, and knowledgable about both the food and wine menu. We will be going back!!!

    We stayed at the McCormick Place Hyatt in conjunction with C2E2, and Shor sort of saved our lives! The company I represent has a very physically and socially active role in participating in this convention, and after a day of being on my feet, wearing about 100 lbs. of costume, and interacting happily with thousands of attendees, Shor's ambiance, service and outstanding fare were just what my colleagues and I needed at the end of a long day. Their breakfast was also excellent.
