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
  • "We had hoped to eat outside, but there was a long wait, and our kids were hungry. The hostess suggested we eat inside, and come back for dessert. It was a great idea. Once happy hour ended, the rooftop bar became less crowded, and we were able to get an area with couches...perfect for our group. Service outside wasn't great, but it the weather was nice, so we were happy to just hang out and take in the view."

  • "The service we received was poor. It took our waiter 10 minutes to come to our table. During the order process he was asked about the grilled vegetable salad and he raised his voice and said he didn't know and that he was a meat eater and if she wanted to add chicken or salmon to the dish. She said no and then went with another option. At no point did he come back and ask how our meal was. If I return and get the same waiter I will not stay. He was not a marvel at customer service."

  • "I have been to Tavern at the Park several times and each time I have enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We had some friends over from Indiana to meet us for lunch and they enjoyed the place just as much as we do. We were a party of six and they gave us an upstairs room with a minimum amount of people, so we were able to really talk and hear each other as we enjoyed the food. I will be back again."

  • "As expected, the view was great due to the location near Millennium Park. Unfortunately, had the worst service that I have ever had in a restaurant. The server did not come take our drink order for nearly a half hour, even after asking other employees to find out waiter. Once the food was ordered, we did not see our server the rest of the evening. The food came out after an hour wait and after another server checked to see if anyone had come to see us yet. Then nobody brought us our bill and we were forced to ask the host for our bill. The food was average at best, but the service completely ruined the entire experience."

  • "DJ our server was very attentive and knowledgable. Manager stopped by. Sliced Ahi Tuna Appetizer to die for. BBQ Beef Brisquets and Mac and Cheese great. Special Snapper with Pineapple Citrus glaze great!!! Key Lime Creme Brulee excellent. Berry Bread Pudding serving could have been smaller, more concentration on moistness with more sauce. Yum!!!!"

  • "Luisa was my waitress on Tuesday and she was fantastic!!! She was very knowledgeable regarding the different items on the menu and wanted to ensure we had a wonderful experience. She was such a great waitress I would recommend the restaurant and request that people specifically ask her for any day of the week!"

  • "This was my first time to the roof deck. I made a reservation, but it did not specify that they do not take reservations for the roof. I got there early anyway to ensure a great spot for me and my co-worker, but they would not seat me and both hostess were rude and seemed very young and discombobulated. As I sat at the roof bar and patiently waited for my friend I saw many INCOMPLETE parties sit down. Finally when we were a complete party of TWO I asked for a seat by the glass. She refused and said they only had availability on the other side of the bar even though there were clearly open tables. So angry at this point I decided to leave and I will never suggest this place to colleagues. We do a TON of entertaining. Just lost our business."

  • "Food not good, service was not great, management terrible. Two meals were inedible. The manager came over and agreed and said to choose another entry. When the bill came they charged us for the more expensive choice instead of just keeping the price of the original selection. When we left and complained all he could say was I'm sorry. We will never come back and definitely not recommend it to anyone."

  • "If you are looking for a good place to take that special client, then look no further than the Tavern on the Park. The upstairs location is a great place to discuss whatever you want and still be heard without shouting, unlike most other Michigan Avenue area restaurants."

  • "Perfect place for those going to a show at Cadillac or Oriental theatre. We informed our server of our limited time window and he was very good at getting back to us and getting our food in timely manner. Enjoyed the meal and ambience. Definitely will go back."

  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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./"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 ."

  • "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!"

  • "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"
