Beautiful room, excellent service, and wonderful food. The only problem was a reception in the room next door. Had a band, so it ruined the ambiance. We stayed at the Four Seasons, so this was perfect for dinner and breakfast.

Good burger. Food took around 30 minutes to come out when it wasn't busy, so that was a little discouraging, but overall it was pretty good.

Food was ok, but certainly not great. Steak undercooked and not hot.
Distracting table of older teens on cell phones was disappointing given the potential ambiance of Allium - very surprised given Four Seasons.
Company was out of this world.

My guest and I dined at Allium for a birthday celebration and our waitress was outstanding. She accommodated my guest's requested revision of a menu item with
no hassle whatsoever. The pace of the service was spot on, and we enjoyed our
complementary glass of sparkling wine in recognition of my guest's birthday and
that was greatly appreciated. I most highly recommend the room for a special celebration or for just a "let's get dressed up a bit and treat ourselves for no special reason" dinner out.

The service was excellent and the food delicious! However, the wait time on our food was quite long. It was never explained to us as to why. Apologies were made, but overall we felt disappointed. We've always believed in the high standards of the Four Seasons and hope this was a one time incident.

The decor is warm and inviting: reserved but stately elegance. Not a quiet retreat as patrons tend to be quite vocal. Lighting is good and there is interesting art work to see. Service is trademark Four Seasons (probably copywrited by now). Ordered the Steelhead Salmon. Although the salmon was grilled to my satisfaction, I could neither understand nor appreciate combining the carrots, kumquats, cumin and almonds with the salmon. The effect of that many flavors competing nearly destroyed the natural taste of the fish. And, where carrots should be succulent, the grilled carrots were hard and decidedly not pleasantly crunchy. The Lobster Nachos and Antioxidant Salad were both quite good.

One of the best meals I've ever had at a restaurant. We had the sablefish which was outstanding. Server was over the top friendly and service very good. Would definitely dine there again, even though there are many great restaurants within easy walking distance of the Four Seasons.

This may be the most beautiful restaurant In which I have dined. Simply gorgeous. The food is eccentric, but quite good. Service---both in the lounge for pre-dinner cocktails and at dinner---was average at best. Far from attentive and overly forgetful. Two featured cocktails and one wine were no longer available. Steaks were good. Lobster nachos were very tasty. Homemade tootsie rolls were not good---strong orange flavor that overpowered anything else that was attempting to shine through. Rave reviews for the Nutella shake. This is a pricey place ($6 for a glass of milk!), so we assumed service would be outstanding.

Overall it was a "fine" experience. For the Four Seasons, the expectations were higher. Probably won't make a point to return in a city with so many culinary choices.

Come on - peas in Paella? That does not go well at all. Yes there was plenty of lobster meat - a whole claw in fact, but the consistency was watery. Pear desert was wonderful. Good wine selection. Wings are sweet and not salty enough. Lobster nachos are good. The best dish has to be the lamb. Steelhead salmon good too. Net net..with the price we paid - it still leaves much to be desired in food quality.

We were first in the main dining area and the last served. Our entrees were ordered at 6:00 pm and we were not served until 7:10 pm. We were advised ONCE that our food would be a few minutes and actually served 15 minutes later. In general the food was good but the soup was cold. Never again!

We arrived for high tea only to be told that they don't take high tea reservations online with Open Table! So, strike one. We decided to stay to eat lunch, but it was not the special occasion we had envisioned. Food is delicious but pricey. Service was slow or non existent. Strike two. Waiters were pleasant but the whole place seemed understaffed. Hostess couldn't care less that our high tea reservation was not honored. Plus, the parking validation didn't work! Strike three.

For a city that has a lot of choices, we were very disappointed with Allium and will not give them a second chance. We knew we would be on a fairly tight schedule in order to start a tour of the Holiday Zoo lights across the street at the base of the John Hancock building at 6:00pm. We made a reservation for 5:00pm, arrived on time, and despite informing the hostess twice of our desire to have a quick dinner, we were not seated until 5:13pm. The dining room was nearly empty, although there were a few stragglers form an earlier tea service. Food that should have been prepared and delivered in 20 minutes did not finally arrive until after 5:50. The only bright spot was our waitress, who was very apologetic, otherwise the hostess deserved one star for service. Although comping us a couple of glasses of wine, it became apparent that unless we ate our meal in 5 minutes we would miss the holiday lights tour. We had a discussion with the manager and although he apologized and indicated he would "make it right" and adjust the bill after we left. No adjustment was ever made. Really was a sad ending to an otherwise great weekend visit to Chicago. Two thumbs down to the Four Seasons and their hostess staff (and manager, who I feel lied to me).

A cozy refuge on a cold winter's day. Had a table by the fireplace which was perfect. Off menu, you will find their famous handmade hot dog with hand-cut fries. Ketchsup, relish, mustard, pickles, sport peppers are included as condiments. Poppy seed roll completes the "upscale" very meaty hot dog. Other items on the menu are very tasty and healthy.

The lighting is horrible and reflects off of table into you eyes. Employees not allowed to dim the lights or no dimmer switches!?!?!?! Sometimes there is a DJ!?!?!!? Not appropriate for Four Seasons. Needs direction what Are you trying to be a nightclub?! Decor is cheap modern art. Decor used to be like a four seasons and more like a country club atmosphere. Bad art on the walls bad lighting bad music bad service mediocre food. It used to be my fav place for biz meetings or lunch or dinner. It used to be an elegant gem not anymore.
They always "forget" to check me in via Open table

With the exception of an extraordinary seasonal dessert, corn profiterole with heirloom tomato sorbet and basil meringue, the food was disappointing. Smoked salmon devilled eggs displayed flecks of pink which must have been salmon, but tasted of nothing. Lobster paella arrived with undercooked rice and lukewarm mussels and clams around the outside. There was a generous portion of sweet lobster but nothing else to get excited about.
