A word from Tavern at the Park
Please join us on our rooftop patio, the Tavern Tree House!! It opens Monday through Saturday at 4pm. Unfortunately, we will be unable to accept reservations for our outdoor seating. Also, OpenTable points will not be rewarded for tables going to the roof. Tavern At The Park offers acclaimed New American cuisine in an upscale decor across from beautiful Millennium Park. Deep wood tones combined with leather and stone to create an atmosphere where rich Chicago history meets modern big-city style. Crain’s Chicago Business said “this elegant tavern epitomizes Chicago style and energy.” In the bar, which CitySearch referred to as “an off-the-clock cocktailers' dream”, you will find a creative seasonal drink list which offers the newest intoxicating trends as well as stylish and innovative beer and wine lists.

Diner Reviews
  • "Greeat place to enjoy a nice dinner with colleagues while in Chicago on business"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The salad was excellent, wine very good, food at best was OK. Could have been good if was hot, but at best was lukewarm. I would try it again, and hope for a better meal next time./"

  • "I treated 3 employees and myself to lunch. We arrived at 1pm, the restaurant itself was still quite busy from the lunch hour crowd, though loud, not too loud we couldn't hear our conversations. Though the food itself was decent, for the price I was expecting something better than what we received. I ordered the chopped salad, though tasty, it proportionately was much more lettuce than any other ingredient (did not equate to a 19 dollar salad). 2 of my co-workers ordered a burger and pork tenderloin special, which were quite generous from the portion perspective, but again for the price, not much else came with them. The service was quite good, when a co-worker received something other than what he ordered, it was replaced w/o question."

  • "We had a great experience at Tavern at the Park. All the dishes were outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the prime rib and mac and cheese as well as the brisket and rotisserie chicken. Plenty of food: come hungry! Nice ambiance inside although if you can get a table looking out at Millenium park that would be even better."

  • "We were able to make a reservation on a busy summer Saturday evening. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. I had the scallops, which normally would not be my favorite. They were cooked to perfection. The sauce had a little kick to it which made the scallops flavorful and delicious. My wife had the butternut squash ravioli which was so good that she was reluctant to share. We finished off the night in nearby Millineum Park and continued with a free Grant Park Orchestra concert. all in all, a wonderful evening in Chicago."

  • "We were just arriving in the city and Tavern on the Park was so convenient! The service was top-notch. The appetizer and main entree were well prepared, pleasing to the eye and worth writing about. The only disappointment was dessert. While the presentation was good the flavor was terribly bland. I was expecting a grand finale and got a grand flop. Delicious dinner.......forget the dessert."

  • "I made a reservation days before for a birthday to sit on the roof. When I got there I was put at the back of the queue for rooftop seating... what's the point of a reservation here? The guy doing the reservations had no idea how long it would take to wait for the roof. "30 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours?" His response was I have no idea. If I have a reservation for the roof from days ago and he can't tell me under an hour that's just dumb. We were seated on the sidewalk instead. Food and service were fine but don't expect to enjoy the view."

  • "Their wait staff is beyond compare. No matter how busy, requests were handled quickly with charm and attentiveness. The location is perfect for theatre goers, park attendees, and Loop shoppers. The food is very ordinary which is disappointing. Presentation of the food is uninspiring. A limited wine by the glass list is somewhat problematic although an Oregon Pinot Noir was available which made my day, but looking for a very good Cabernet by the glass was futile. That's surprising for a Chicago restaurant. The plus at this place are the people who work here- congenial and caring."

  • "Everything about Tavern was fantastic. The hostess was very friendly, the waitress, Veronica I believe was her name, was awesome and very helpful. The food was delicious and we had so much food! Although the place was busy when we were seated we didn't at all feel squished. When leaving the waitress even showed us to the train station through the building. I can't wait to go downtown to eat here again!"

  • "Our group of four ladies had an early dinner here. All of our meals were wonderful and the service was very good. I would recommend the scallops - they were large and cooked perfectly. I will definitely go back!"

  • "Good Restaurant. Great food choices, friendly and competent service. Must have reservations during lunch, or it is booked. Even though it is packed at lunch, the atmosphere is calm and one can have a a good business discussion."

  • "My service was FANTASTIC! The staff at the door , the server, the manager they were all fantastic !!!! The food was OK , I ordered the meatballs expecting a delicious Italian Treat , that was far from what I received. Other people in my party enjoyed their food. The calarmie , the veggie pasta and the steak burger seemed to be enjoyed ."

  • "We had lunch with a friend we hadn't seen for awhile. As we walked in one person in the party was wishing her a happy birthday. Our server picked up on that and at the end brought her a brownie with a candle. A small thing but so very thoughtful. Food is always very good there."

  • "The owners are very attentive to their customers. They really care about the food quality and service. The staff is friendly and concerned about pleasing customers. This restaurant is across the street from Millennium Park and offers patio and rooftop seating. Customers are invited to a comfortable, casual and business atmosphere. Always a favorite of mine to visit!"

  • "The Matradee was unfriendly, inconsiderate and an overall jerk. I had a 7:15 reservation for two. He made us wait for over 20 minutes to sit because as he described tables of theatre goers were slow in leaving. There were empty tables that I asked about and he dismissed me in a rude fashion. After 20 minutes he sat us at a table that was empty the entire time, the waiter then complained about the way the Matradee handles customers as well as service personnel. Luckily the food was outstanding but I will not return due to the Matradee"

  • "Had 3 Clients in town; their trip was extended to include dinner. Tavern at the Park was the perfect spot; great view of the park; wonderful bar service; food was terrific...impressed this quasi-foodie group from Manhattan & Boston. Host and Wait staff were terrific. All made for a terrific evening!! Many Thanks! "

  • "We were hosting friends for dinner and had a reservation for 6 PM. We had informed our server that we had theater tickets for an 8 PM curtain. Drinks were served, but by 7:30 our meals had not arrived at the table even though we had alerted a floor manager about it. We left the restaurant without having eaten. The dining room wasn’t full or even overly busy the entire time. Drinks (and the invisible meal) were comped as they should have been. How do they remain in business? We won’t be returning to find out. "

  • "My husband and I went for a late lunch. We had attentive service and great food. Our table was right in a nook by a window, so even though we were in an office building, it was intimate and had a great view of Lake Front and Michigan Ave. Could see Lake Michigan. My husband grew up with perfect home-cooked Italian pasta, and he gave it a thumbs up. We knew about the restaurant from a friend that was the manager years ago. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The drinks, service and the meals were all very tasty. The staff was very focused on meeting our time schedule and ensuring that everything meet our expectations. The waiter was very helpful when asked for recommendations."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "I've been here several times and it's the first time I've been disappointed with the food. I ordered the Rotisserie chicken with vegetables and truffles and Irish potato cakes. There were barely any chicken in the dish and I thought it was really bland. The potato cakes, which I was really excited about, needed to have more crisp to it and A LOT LESS cheese. Like I said, I've been there many times before and have been satisfied or very happy with the food - just not this time. The host the at door, our server, and the room were to mine and my friend's satisfaction though."

  • "Tavern at the Park was recommend by a co-worker who had eaten there last fall. He recommended the steak. I had the steak sandwich, which was excellent. The quality of the beef was impressive--much better than I normally find in a steak sandwich. Everything else we had, from start to finish, was excellent. We had two servers working our table, and so had plenty of attention."

  • "The service was great! The locale convenient to many activities, however the food was just ok and over priced."

  • "Opened for lunch at 12:00 and there was a line. We had a reservation so we were seated outside. The kitchen apparently never recovered from the crunch management put themselves in and it took an hour for our entrées to come. Unfortunately we had theatre tickets so we couldn't eat them. We've had good experiences here in the past. It is a great location for the Ford Oriental Theatre but give yourself lots of time and don't go if you are in a hurry."

  • "We had a reservation on the sat of Memorial Day and had brought out of town guests. We were headed to millenium park, so thought this would work well with our plans. I'd been there before and been seated upstairs which was a bright scenic space. On this beautiful day we were seated on the lower level with no windows. It felt like being in a dungeon. The upstairs was closed for a private party and while there was seating in the bar we could not get it. We saw one man being seated in a large booth alone in the bar area... Food was mediocre. I had the club sandwich, the bread was dry and dense. My $12 sangria was ok but filled with ice, so not much in the glass. The hummus we ordered as an appetizer was very good. Not worth the money!"
