Tavern on Rush
Amazing Gold Coast GemThis was the best dining experience in recent memory. We (party of 5) had a Mother's Day reservation and I'm always a bit worried about dining out on a commercial holiday but this was an amazing experience. The service was the best we have experienced in a long time. We dine out about once a week so I tend to know the difference between fair and impeccable service. As far as the food goes, there is literally something for everyone, picky eaters and foodies alike. LOVE, love, LOVE Tavern on Rush! You can't go wrong!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI went here with my parentsI went here with my parents to celebrate Mother's Day. The food was great and the atmosphere was perfect for the occasion. The prices were a little steep ($5 for a single pancake), but good for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect dining, wife, hubby & sonSubtly elegant ambiance, superb dining and service makes this restaurant, number one on my dining list.

There is a wide variety on the menu. We love the option of still and sparkling water (free of charge) at the table...5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, love the viewWe recently dined there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and also our daughter ending her college semester in Chicago. We wanted a special night and received just that. Our waiter was very attentive and good, the food was also very good, including martinis. The best part was sitting next to the open balcony, we like indoors but since it was a beautiful night it was the best of both worlds. Can't wait to go back when I visit Chicago.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest burger I've ever had!Best burger I've ever had!

I've been here a few times and have never been disappointed. Our table had the crab cake salad, egg club, turkey burger and jambalaya. No complaints from anyone. Quick attentive service and great atmosphere. Even met an acting celeb while we were there.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMService was greatWas veryService was greatWas very disappointed in the Dover Sole3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely place and great food.lovely place and great food. Our waiter was fantastic only criticism and it is a small one was the front of house staff left us waiting around for our table for a while and we weren't really sure where to go. As soon as we met our waiter and ate our food though all was forgotten.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTavern on Rush never disappoints.Tavern on Rush never disappoints. Great service and Excellent food. Love the atomsphere. One of our favorite places to dine in the city.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Tavern on Rush, we goLove Tavern on Rush, we go there as often as we can. The food is to die for, the wine is amazing, and you have a great view of the plaza right across the street.
The thing you have to be wary of, this is not for the budget conscious. For three of us (with two people splitting a meal) the cost was almost $150. We knew that going in, and were fine with it. But the $30 price tag that Open Table puts on the restaurant is a little misleading. I would count on spending around $50 per person, if not more.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMdisappointment with hostessFood was great, service was great, my only disappointment was the hostess and maitre D, we had a 8p reservation, and did not get seated until 8:40p, it would have been nice if they offered to get us a drink or appetizer, for having such a wait at such a late hour.
b3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Long wait.We really enjoyed the food and ambiance of Taven on Rush. Our server was awesome and made the experience more enjoyable. The only complaint we have (and we nearly left the restaurant) was that we waited 45 min to be seated for our reservation. I know the hostess overheard our debate about leaving and then pushed the manager to seat us. We ended up with a great table overlooking the streetscape. However I am not sure that we would wait that long for a reservation again. But again the food and server made up for the wait3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about Tavern onEverything about Tavern on Rush is of excellent quality - except their host, who has been there forever.
He is fairly rude, obviously hates his job and smells of cigarettes.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
