Tavern on Rush
Excellent all the way around!Service was fantastic and the taste of everything was great! We had steaks (filet and NY strip).6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and delicious choicesWe enjoyed a filet, and a variety of appetizers and the service was excellent! We will return in the future. The menu was large with a great steak presentation. There was a large variety of selections so it would be good for anyone. It was a vibrant, busy, restaurant in a great convenient location.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service/great foodWe have been to Tavern many times in the past, however, our server this time made the experience one to remember. His name was Frankie and he was very attentive, knowledgable and engaging. Tavern is always a good bet but request Frankie and you won't be disappointed!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMokordered the 22oz ribeye med rare. Came well done on the first 1" in from the edges, and Raw (cold) on the inside. Sides were amazing though. upstairs is a steak house atmosphere and downstairs is a scene. Liked the spot, steak did taste great for the part between the well done and raw that was perfect.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMUpstairs at Tavern on RushWe have enjoyed lunch at Tavern on Rush in the past, casual downstairs dining with great brunch/lunch selections. This time we dined upstairs and it is a whole other atmosphere. More upscale with excellent service and a fun horse racing themed decor. The grilled fish was beautifully presented on lobster/shrimp risotto. There were large pieces of both shrimp and lobster, not just flavored. The asparagus was nicely prepared and the organic greens were fresh and bountiful. They are justifiably proud of their meat selections as well but I always order fish. Waiters were professional in both attire, knowledge and service. We enjoyed the restaurant and will return soon.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere.Outdoor seating was great, but better yet, the food was good as well.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always great at tavernOnce again a fantastic meal and superb service provided my Ashley. Always great to see Tito, Benny and Ronny. The walleye was amazing!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing 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. The flavors are complex without being overpowering. The temperatures and presentation are perfect. This is a place to go when you want to be impressed and you do not want to disappoint. Kudos to the Chef and Staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with my ladyHad a 7:30 reservation in the dining room upstairs. Overall everything was very good. Menu is very pricey but the food backs it up. Ambiance is very nice. Great location. Place tends to get busy so reservations are good. Our table was ready right on time. My gal had the veggie burger which she always gets and loves. I got the seafood skewer special which was very good but the portion was quite small. Our waitress flirted with me somewhat heavily and my girl noticed but didn't get too bent out of shape. As long as you don't mind spending some money this is a great place for higher end couples or group dinners.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were veryFood and service were very good, had a great dining experience5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat People Watching SceneThis is a great spot in River North for food and fun with friends. 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 had theirgood lunch place. I had their specialty pizza, and it was spicy, but just right. also, turkey avocado club, which was alittle dry. Their beer selections were great, and the pineapple infused vodka was superb.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMike, who took care of us,Mike, who took care of us, really did a great job. It was my first visit, but sure it won't be my last. Food was very good, and great variety. Nice option for bringing out of town people, or just a good meal with great service anytime.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTavern on Rush was one ofTavern on Rush was one of my favorite restaurants when visiting Chicago. On this particular visit the service was excellent as always but the food wasn't as good as I had wanted. I ordered the special (big mistake) which was a filet with a stuffed flounder. The filet was excellent but the stuffed flounder left much too be desired. I will return as I enjoy the steaks and of course the vibrant bar scene.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFoods were excellent, ribeyeFoods were excellent, ribeye steak, tuna avocado tartre, spinach salad, and wine..

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 AMSaturday afternoon lunchWent here Saturday afternoon and they were packed but not so much we had to wait or anything! Had a last minute reservation and went right to our table! Our waitress seemed a bit distracted and was a little slow, but we weren't in a huge hurry so it was OK. I had the BLT and it was perfect! The fries are great too. I went with my boyfriend and his parents which was a GREAT place for this kind of lunch ;)
Everyone loved their food and the price wasn't too bad for Gold Coast dining! Will definitely return!3/9/2013 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
