Italian
Our chefs serve contemporary and traditional Italian dishes using seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Our extensive wine collection, featuring more than 200 American and Italian wines, is displayed throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms. At the bar, enjoy superb spirits and wines by the glass representing a duality of American and Italian varietals.

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.

This is always a reliable place for that pre-theatre meal. We were a bit late and appreciated their holding our table. Good food and the wines are very nice and reasonably priced.

I love 312 Chicago. I eat there whenever we go to the opera and it is consistently delicious. The customer service is always impeccable. Everyone is always so solicitous and you can tell they really enjoy the food they serve. The delicious food and the fabulous customer service keeps me coming back.

WE were lucky enough to enjoy their restaurant week menu - they extended it a few days because of the extreme cold the week before. The brussels sprouts were amazing! Desserts were exceptional - cheesecake with amarena cherries and a flourless chocolate cake. The appetizers and the desserts served as perfect brackets for the entrees of roasted salmon with lentils and N'duja rubbed chicken breast. Service, as always, was perfect. We have never had a bad experience at 312.

We enjoyed our dinner for 6 at 312 Chicago. The food was excellent. The service was good. Our group lingered for a long time and no one bothered us or seemed to mind. The restaurant was fairly full and therefore loud but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other.

We went pre-theater for my birthday. Did not like the first seating assignment, and they were fast to move us elsewhere. Service was VERY good, the food was very good, and we definitely will recommend to others. Best yet, the restaurant was a quick 3 blocks to the theater--just enough to walk off dinner for a comfortable show!

Overall a good meal. We did the restaurant menu deal which was a good way to get a generous amount of food for a decent price. The service was a little bit slow at first and although we initially mentioned we had to go to the opera by 7 we were a little time crunched at that end of our meal. The chicken entree and the tortelloni entree were both fantastic and the chocolate cake was decadent as well. Old-fashioned left something to be desired.

The food for restaurant week was incredible! However, I will say the service could have been better. Our hostess was more attentive than our waiter. He served us our wine and continuously refilled when we were low while we only saw our waiter when he brought out each course.

I wish I could remember our servers name because he was great, very personable and full of recommendations. We had breakfast on a Sunday morning and were treated two very large portions that were as simple as a Crossaint breakfast sandwich and as fancy as a Caprese omelet. Coffee was bold and yummy. What I appreciate it most is that the table was never left with sugar wrappers or unattended coffee or creamer the entire time. The ambience was simple, tasteful and the window view was fun to watch people outside. Would definitely recommend.

The location was great, as it is next to the Cadillac Theater. We were impressed with the home made potato chips. We got the Chicken Panini, the chicken was excellent, but the bread was disappointing. The bread was too hard, so took the chicken out. The atmosphere was great, as was the staff. We had a great Bloody Mary and Mimosa. Will think about going back, but may need to try something different.

My wife and I came downtown for a long weekend for our anniversary and this was our one planned dinner reservation for the evening as we were staying at the Hotel Allegro. I indicated in my reservation it was our anniversary and they had a table already decorated and ready to go for us.

The food was tremendous - my wife got the risotto special and I got a pasta dish. Both were of a great size and we didn't need an appetizer or salad. They gave us a complimentary dessert as well.

Throughout the meal, managers came by to check if everything was going well and if we were having a good time. I cannot recommend 312 enough for the quality of food and the staff.

Our food and cocktails were excellent. Our server seems to care very little about us or our needs. She ignored our table most of the night. When it came time to see if we wanted dessert, she checked her phone, and announced oh I’m sorry doesn’t look like you’ll have enough time. We had tickets to see a musical next door (Kinky Boots). Over all 5 Star restaurant and food. 2 star service. And I’ve dined there many times.
