312 Chicago is centrally located the Loop Theater and Financial District. Every room offers iconic city views including City Hall, the Thompson Center, the Board of Trade and the Cadillac Palace Theater. The ambiance evokes the comfort and sophistication of a 1930’s supper club, but the style is pure, modern elegance with rich walnut wood and dramatic chandeliers.

We were going to the theatre, as many were. Food came quickly and was delicious! Will definitely return.
The place was packed. Every seat filled. Servers remained in flustered and attentive. The kitchen delivered quickly. The food was great. I had spinach gnocchis with braised lamb. I eat a lot of lamb and this was the best lamb dish I’ve had in a very long time.
The noise was so loud it was difficult for us to talk to each other.
Good meal and service. Lunch prix-fix was a great value.
Steak was good. But potato pancake was bland and tasteless. Really detracted from the meal.
If you’re looking for some one on one time to impress a potential client at a business lunch, you could do no better than asking for a seat at the chef’s counter. The Northern Italian menu always has something for everyone’s pallet and dietary requirements. Chef Luca always sends a complimentary tasting appetizer to those who sit there.
Always a good meal! Great knowledgeable service and comfortable seating.
Excellent quality both in food and cocktails. Attentive and friendly service.
Every time we come to Chicago I eat at 312 with my wife because the food's great and it has a great ambience. It's very romantic and it's a great place to have a conversation.
We've had dinner at 312 a couple of times in the last couple of months and both times we enjoyed the food and service. We were lucky enough to have had the same server both times, Zhanna. She is very personable, attentive, friendly and helpful with food suggestions. Everyone in our party enjoyed their selections, I had the pork chop. Sous Chef Jose stopped by our table and asked if we were happy with our food and if we needed anything else, a nice touch. I would recommend eating here.
Veggie Lasagna & Black Ink Squid Linguine was AMAZING!
Fantastic food. Loved the steak and eggs!
We enjoyed unique and delicious cocktails followed by good wine selection and scrumptious seafood entrees.
Food and service was outstanding. Can't wait to go back
Excellent food, especially when combining seafood with pasta. Usually very good service. It is a bit noisy at lunchtime, however. Best to come after 12:30 when some patrons are leaving.
A good choice for a business lunch. 312 has some very nice seafood options.
Food was okay
Mom/daughter date to see Mean Girls musical.
Excellent all around as always. No longer live in Chicago but when back, I always make the effort to come back to 312.
Menu was limited
Antonio was an excellent server! He even brought me a cake for my birthday and three of the servers sang to me - it was such a wonderful meal and great service and I felt so welcome there - the manager then took our photo by the marquee of the phantom and I was very pleased that they offered to do that for me
We were seated right away even before our reservation at noon. Everyone was so pleasant from beginning to end.
My daughter and I enjoyed our brunch. Very convenient, didn’t realize it next door to theater where we were going to see play.
Perfect for dinner before a show. Right next to the Cadillac Theatre.
I have been to 312 4 times over the last couple of years. Past experiences have been great... nice food, great location, good service. We went on Saturday, June 4, and received the most horrible service that I can remember from any server. Our server Zhanna was not responsive, and did not check on us in a timely manner, but also, she was condescending. I heard her communicating with other tables in an acceptable manner, but she was not that way with us! I was there celebrating an anniversary with my significant other. I was SHOCKED by the way that she talked to him. It was completely not something we should have experienced. Based completely on how Zhanna impacted our otherwise beautiful night, I will never dine at 312 again. I will advise all I know to not visit 312. Beware...they have a great location by the Cadillac Palace Theater, but there are tons of better restaurants in the area.
Mother/Daughter outing. Brunch before a show at the Cadillac Palace.
Luis was our waiter. Excellent job and very nice mannered. Attentive to our table and needs.
The short rib hash was delicious and the French toast we had as a dessert. Both excellent choices.
We have dined here several times and haven’t been disappointed yet.
Dinner here was amazing! I went for my birthday and we had a great time! Our only con was our waitress. She wasn’t very explanatory when we asked about drinks, food choices, etc. But the food and atmosphere made up for her shortcomings. Great place to go!
We made a 5pm reservation for dinner before a 7:30 theater show at Cadillac Theater. It is literally around the corner which made the walk easy for my elderly Mother. Drinks were great. Brussels Sprouts for appetizer were REALLY good! We split the beef tenderloin dinner and salad. Perfect amount of food so we weren’t too full before the show. Everything was excellent! Highly recommend.
Great food and lots of choices! The waiter was very attentive and explained all the specials very clearly. Location in downtown Chicago is convenient. Friendly environment and quiet enough to have conversation without feeling like you're yelling!
We were early for our reservation and were still sat quickly. We had a table with plenty of space which is not always the case when it’s only a party of two. Food was great. Our server’s suggestions were terrific and felt genuine. We left satisfied and very glad we made thus decision. As we often attend shows at the Cadillac, coming back to 312 Chicago is an easy decision to make.
Lovely service, great food, lovely atmosphere and view! Perfect when attending the theater at Cadillac Palace 👍😁
Perfect spot to grab a bite to eat pre or post theatre. Have dined here several times and have never been disappointed with the menu or service.
312's staff is friendly and accommodating and its food is always good. A good place for a business lunch.
Excelente servicio y buena comida
Food was average and lighting was a bit harsh over our table. Will not return. It was just okay.
Even though we arrived at a busy time, our reservation was waiting and ready. The service was quick and friendly. We were well-attended, the food was great, and the atmosphere was lovely.
My husband and I have a standing Sunday brunch date, always my treat. We live in the Loop and have patronized another restaurant nearby until some recent very disappointing experiences. We were going to the theater this past Sunday and decided to try 312.
We thought the food and service was excellent and though a bit pricier than some others in the neighborhood we will definitely return.
The atmosphere is active but pleasant and quiet conversation possible.
We will also give it a try for dinner.
Great Chicago feel to the restaurant.
Interesting menu with affordable prices for the city. Food delicious and service excellent. Bathrooms were a bit of a hike upstairs. Convenient location near theater district. Would definitely recommend.
My mom, sister and I had a great time before Phantom of the Opera! Thank you!
