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.

Even though I have had disappointments at 312 in the past (mostly with the quality of the food), I chose the restaurant this time because it was convenient for the person I was meeting. Once again, the food was really bad. The bread was stale (and appeared to have been re-used from an earlier table). The tomato soup was runny and tasteless (completely inedible); to say it tasted like dish water with rubber bands (calamari rings) thrown in would be kind. I didn't send it back, just pushed it to the side uneaten, and to the waiter's credit he did remove that charge from the bill of his own volition. For my meal I had ordered fritto misto, which came out mushy and tasteless and included a big tub of some sort of aioli that I think was actually just plain mayonnaise. The service was very good, we had a nice view of the street from a second floor table, and my guest appeared to enjoy her risotto (unless she was just being polite), but I'm not sure I will give this restaurant another chance -- unless I can figure out whether any of the other menu items beyond those I have tried in the past are actually worth eating!

First time there. Sunday afternoon lunch before seeing "Cinderella". We sat at a booth on the second level. Water glass was always filled which to me indicates a wait staff that is taking care of you. Food was excellent and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. Would come here again.

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!

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
