First of all, I thought the lighting was a little dull. Was just missing some glow. Also I thought the menu didn't have enough choices. I chose something simple. The tenderloin for 42. It was small and came out room temp and for chicago competition shouldn't have a chunk of fat to have to cut off . I know it was sitting a while. I spent 250 for 2 adults and 2 kids. Just wasn't worth the 250 for food quality and portions and experience. Small changes could have made me happy. Hot steak and a little less pricey would have changed all.

This was my second visit to Allium and it didn't disappoint. Sunday was the brunch menu which was varied in choices so there was something for everyone. I also enjoyed the lunch menu where again the selections were varied and appealed to many different palettes.....guests ages 14 to 70. Just delicious and relaxing!

The Four Seasons always delivers. That being said, there are opportunities to refine - - the crispy fish tacos were a major disappointment. I haven't seen something so heavily battered in years. Our waiter was good, but not great when it came to checking in (refilling drinks, getting the check, etc.). Overall, a great experience - - simply not 'perfect' relative to the price-point.

Still lovely and festive for our annual Christmas lunch with my sister and Mom - even though we are Gold Coasters! Cozy by the fireplace for a leisurely lunch seated in deep upholstered chairs. Fabulous and timeless!

We visited for a family "Christmas" Brunch, with kids. We were seated late (had a reservation). The restaurant was quite crowded and not well staff. Our waiter was very nice but clearly overworked and totally non-attentive. The food was cold (wasn't suppose to be). Had to ask a couple of times simply just for water. The buffet line looked awful, cold eggs that had sat there for a while. The menu was nothing extensive or special. The Four Seasons is definitely not what it used to be.

On my last 2 visits, I found the service to be highly variable depending on the busyness of the restaurant. The food is usually quite good. The ambiance is lovely.

The Allium is our new favorite place to eat in Chicago! We visit Chicago to relax four times a year. This time we were in Chicago 6 nights. We ate at Joe's Seafood & Steak, Gibson's Rosebud and the Signature Room. The Allium was above the rest for it's creative food and fresh healthy ingredients. Just no comparison to the others. We ended up eating at The Allium three times this past week. Our compliments to the chefs, waiters and servers.

Very disappointed in this restaurant. We were here for a birthday lunch. The service was slow and were ignored in favor of big parties. The food ranged from mediocre to poor. I ordered the Chicago hot dog. It was over cooked to the point of nearly being burnt and the bun was stale. They tried to cover it up by toasting it. It was inedible. I should have sent it back but had already been there so long I thought we would never get out. And the price was far from reasonable. I will never go back.

$34 for two eggs, bacon, overcooked but cold potatoes and a chocolate croissant. Plus they charged another $5 for toast. I would recommend any of the benedicts or any other platter than the Midwestern Breakfast. The brunch offerings looked weak at best.

Please note this restaurant is located on the seventh floor of the Four Seasons Hotel. Two different dining environment are available, warm and cozy near a fireplace or a polished indoor patio-like setting with large windows. The food goes well beyond its description. A side of fried broccolini had outstanding flavor and texture, crisp not leaden. A beet salad appetizer split with a family member was presented on two plates, both works of art. Butternut squash soup was the best ever experienced. Halibut was a snow white, thick steak flaky like I rarely see outside of Alaska. Crispy-skinned duck breast accompanied by duck sausage and polenta was a delicious dinner special. I highly recommend this restaurant for a relaxed, quiet dinner with family or friends while visiting Chicago.

We made spur-of-the moment reservations through Open Table on a Friday night. We dined early and so weren't entirely surprised to find the wait staff a little on the light side, but as the evening went on - we left around 7 PM - it never did seem as if it were staffed properly. So our service was very slow. We found this to be the case in another hotel restaurant we dined at recently (NoMi), too. Even for a Friday night it never seemed to fill up, so perhaps that's why they staff so sparsely. Whatever the reason, service, as I said, was slow from our server himself, although dishes were brought and cleared away by other staff. The food was just OK; I had the seasonal squash soup, which was bland. The filet was very good, however, even though the sides were just OK (broccolini, which I hate due to its bitter taste, and plain yellow potatoes). The ambience is very lovely and afterwards we went out to the lounge and had some after dinner drinks, and enjoyed ourselves. All in all, if you're staying at the Four Seasons, it's a perfectly servicable restaurant. If you're not staying there, I wouldn't go out of my way to try it out as there are so many more exciting options in the area.

Food was very good. We ordered from the bar menu, it was still very expensive! Luckily the service was good and as I said before the food was good...It just was too expensive for what it was. We each had only one drink. Very nice atmosphere! Before you go there, check the menu online first.

Only issue was a single diner "yelling" into his phone while standing as his window table for at least 15 minutes that was not addressed by the staff, until we complained. He was then asked to step out of the dining area to finish his call.

Once this situation was remedied the balance of the Allium lunch experience was wonderful.

Pendant mon séjour à Chicago , j'en est profité pour allez aux restaurant Allium qui est à l'intérieur du Four seasons. J'ai adoré mon plat car les potions était génereuse , c'était très bon , d'autant plus que les serveurs sont super à l'écoute , bien que j'avais un peut froid car c'est sans doute que j'était proche des grandes fenêtres , je n'hésiterais pas à revenir très bientôt. Je conseille se restaurant à tout se qui cherche un restaurant de qualité avec des produits frais.

Unexpectedly Awesome.
Rarely a fan of hotel restaurants (especially in Chicago where you can find world class food all over), Allium is a bright spot in the city. The server (young woman with tattoos on her left arm and a ring tattoo on her right) was possibly the most pleasant and funny server that I have had in years - she was a delight. The food - fantastic - we kept is simple but were very impressed, the chicken was on par with Publican and the burger (why is there a deep fried lobster clay on top?) was flavorful and perfectly cooked. The only - and I mean the only - fault we found with the food was that the burger bun was too big. I know this is fashionable now - but if I wanted a loaf of bread and a burger I would order than. We ended up eating the burger open faced.

Beautiful place. Very good food, but menu is kind of limited. I love the fact that it's a fancy restaurant that is also kid-friendly. We went there for my husband's birthday and brought along our two kids (ages 6 and 10). We all loved the place. The children said their food was amazing and ate all of it (and they are picky eaters!). Our waitress was very kind and efficient. My husband had the lamb and said it was excellent. My sister had pork chops and was very happy with the flavor but not so happy with the amount of fat on it. I had fish (Alaskan Halibut) and found it pretty regular; good, but not spectacular.
