We visited Chicago for our anniversary and to attend Hamilton. We stayed at the kimpton allegro so we could walk to the theatre. Dinner at 6 was great and we had plenty of time to enjoy our food and then walk to the 8 pm show. Our waiter was attentive and helpful, food was delicious. Wonderful evening!

Service was awful. We waited an extended time for everything. Water, drinks, to order and then for our food. By the time we were done there was only one other table in the restaurant before the matinee. We barely made the show in time

Prior to attending the Sound of Music next door, we had a terrific dinner at 312. Obviously it was a very convenient place, but that’s NOT why we chose it. The last time we went to a play at the Cadillac theater we did pick it because it was so close. It was very good that time so we booked it again.

This time was even better. We will be stopping in, even when we’re not attending a play in the future. Everything was fantastic! Thank you.

A very good restaurant located next to the Cadillac Theater. Theater pre-fixe menu was a great value. App+ entree+ dessert $44. Add wine pairing for additional $22.

This last visit, My one friend found an eggshell in her gnocchi. That was a bit of a turnoff. Typically, we have an excellent experience

I'm more of a Quantity than Quality guy, but even so, I thought 312 was nothing special. A very small and simple menu, but I wasn't overly impressed with anything. The best part of the experience was the Buffala Appetizer... simply fantastic, actually. Everything else... meh. The location was conveinent for our show at the Cadillac Theater, and the service was friendly, but the food... not that great. I ordered a special NY Strip Steak that lacked serious flavor. It was cooked to Medium as requested, but it just wasn't tasty... especially for 38 dollars. Girlfriend has the Squid Ink Pasta Dish... she did not finish it. She said it was good, but not great. I guess the pre-dinner bread was decent, but how special is that? Sorry 312 Chicago... won't be back. I think it's you and me.

The food here is always excellent. The service is usually very good. But for my most recent visit I felt like the waiter forgot about us. We were there for a business lunch, but by the time we left we felt like we had been held hostage.

Some friends and I ate brunch at 312 Chicago this past Sunday, before a matinee show at the Cadillac Palace Theater, which is just around the corner from the restaurant. The vegetarian omelette was superb! I also enjoyed the coffee - not too strong, not too weak. The service was just the right combination of attentive, but not intrusive - very friendly staff, all around. I thought the prices were reasonable, as well.

This was my first visit to 312 Chicago, but I would definitely go back again! Overall, I would recommend this establishment to many for the food, and the convenience, if attending a show in a nearby theater.

It was another theatre date for us, a 3-hour drive into the Chicago loop for us. So we REALLY look forward to dinner and 312 Chicago didn’t disappoint again. We so appreciate a special evening - good service in a lovely setting with terrific food and wine. Carrot/ginger soup, salmon, sea bass, chocolate torte - lots to be happy about. Thank you!

My friend and I LOVE 312. We have been there several times recently, before a matinee. The location is perfect, close to both the Cadillac Palace and the Ford Oriental. Twice, we have had a wonderful booth in the corner, and our waiter was terrific.

There is always a wine special, and the food is amazing. We usually split an appetizer and an entree, and that gives us more opportunities to try different things.

Although it is an Italian restaurant, there are many lighter fare options, and wines from all over the world.

If you decide to go before the theatre, allow yourself a few hours to enjoy the experience.
