It was a very pleasant experience.
The luxuriousnous of the space was appreciated.
My husband has difficulty with noisy spaces. Therefore the upholstery and carpeting, which absorb sound, was welcomed.
Service was lackluster - started with an almost 10 minute wait for the hostess to arrive to check us in for our reservation. Once our order was taken, appetizer was forgotten and time between ordering and getting served was long. Bus boy was good and attentive. Waitress was trying but seem to be foiled by the kitchen and others. Food was so-so and presented on a cramped plate or in a pan. A plate would have served us better. Nice atmosphere and quiet but pricey for the quality of food and service - $22 for an appetizer (lunch). Most likely would not choose to frequent again.
It is a pleasure to write a review for such a wonderful restaurant. It's hard to find good customer service nowadays, but when you receive impeccable service from every employee encountered and a array of fresh food for every pallet that's when you know this is what it is all about. We applaud Allium for taking such good care of us. As a vegan it is challenging at times to find restaurants who are vegan-friendly and what really touched me is when our waitress Mariana told me she too is vegan. How wonderful! Mariana was beyond good, her service was detailed, professional, relatable, a level of perfection. Allium's personal touch, delicious food, and ambiance has us hooked for life. We shared our unforgettable experience with our friends and family. They are now anticipating the great Allium experience. Thank you Allium and Mariana for everything. Blessings! (Lilia's Quinoa Muesli and banana pancakes sooo deliciously divine)
Great menu for restaurant week! Great food!
Thanks Allium! ❤️
Dined at Allium during restaurant week. Ordered from the pre-fixed menu. Each course was worse than the preceding one. Barrata was ok. Prawns were scarce. Sea bass was flavorless. I never submit reviews to anything but a restaurant like this, in a Four Seasons, fell woefully short. I travel to Chicago frequently and this is the worst dining I have experienced in your great city. Service was pleasant and timely.
It could have just been the night that we were there but it was like walking into a quiet oasis from a very noisy day. The acoustics of this place are nice and low. It was the perfect chill spot. The food was excellent, but the service by Katherine was unbelievable.
I rarely encounter her level of professionalism when dining out. She made everything appear effortless and seamless. I hope she makes a ton of money, because she made the meal a flawless experience.
Thank you Ms. K !!
As one would expect from Four Seasons, lovey meal for restaurant week. Made the price point a little more reasonable. Service was fantastic, food and wine delicious. Only negative was the dessert, a little disappointing.
We ordered from the prix fixe menu for Restaurant Week. The food was perfectly prepared and the pairing of the courses was great. Located in the Four Seasons hotel on the 7th floor, beautifully decorated with modern artwork.
Impeccable restaurant at the four seasons. While everything was top of the line and it was expected to pay $40-50 per entree, I was surprised at the cost of the drinks.- five of us, beverages at $15-20 with a $150 bar tab. Lesson would be to each have a drink or perhaps split a bottle of wine. Other that that, I have no complaints
Sarah our waitress was just great; very personable and efficient. I had the shrimp and chorizo with heirloom tomatoes and he had the steak. Both meals were superb. I’ve been here once before and the meals never disappoint. Drinks were never empty and food came efficiently. Cocktails are definitely full pours. Very clean restaurant and we are already thinking of coming again in the spring.
not many places are very expensive but worth every penny, Allium is. Drinks and appetizer at the fireplace, then dinner in the very cozy bar all handled by a delightful and engaging person, Juliette. Drinks were expensive but so well done. Wife and I had two different scallop preparations each good enough to fight over. Time and dollars well spent.
Amazing food, great service and beautiful place. Went for lunch and will go again
Upscale dining spot nearby for me to take guests. Food choices are good, but pricey for some portions!
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.
Beautiful views of John hannock great setting very relaxing
food was decent for a
Hotel lobby resturant
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.
Allium is a hidden gem, amazing. They have a great wine list as well. This Four Seasons Restaurant is definitely a must try.
