Allium’s seasonal menu focuses on sustainable ingredients. Vegetables drive the ever-evolving menu, sourced both from local farmers and the Hotel’s own rooftop garden. Meats, one of the Midwest’s greatest culinary staples, are well represented, from dry aged filet chop to the menu’s From the Meat Locker section, featuring a selection of premium steaks and chops from Midwestern ranchers.

The price of the Sunday Brunch buffet was listed on the website as $38 per person. When I made the reservation for Father’s Day, it did not indicate that the price was $65 per person. That is almost twice as much. Yes, it was upgraded but it would have been appreciated to have known that before the bill came. Also, at that price, most brunches include a drink, such as a Bloody Mary or Mimosa, in the price.
Great quiet place but half our food was cold, the other half was spot on. I’ll split the stars. Very few dark wooded places left so don’t want to trash the tradition I like. Cappuccino cold, guests didn’t tell me till we left. Unfortunate because stay at Four Seasons was good.
Awesome. The food was incredible, the wait staff was even better than the food. We went there for our 40th anniversary, they made it very special. The lavosh is a must
We wanted a great place to eat with a relaxed non commercial environment. We had a wonderful experience and will be returning again.
Good food . Good service . Lovely setting . Nice portions . Attentive staff .
Delicious with impeccable service but extremely expensive.
It was very bad.
Being a five star hotel, it should be better. Need a Michelin star chef. Great ambiance though.
We were not sure who our waiter was since different people came and went. Not offered a second drink. Had to ask for coffee. Not told where buffet was or if we should start our meal. No bagels with lox. Small selection of food, only inexpensive options. Had to flag someone down so we could get check. Brunch buffet lacked traditional carving station. No seafood selections. Only 4 dessert offerings. We were very disappointed and embarrassed that the guest we were hosting was brought here.
The food was very good. I don't know if this was the most I have spent on a meal but it was probably close to it if not the most. I suspect that was due mostly to the location.
It was our anniversary and had a wonderful experience! Cocktails were good. The waiter was awesome and brought a special vegan menu for my wife. She loved her meal...the truffle fries were AMAZING! I had the filet mignon with fried cauliflower...delicious. Great service...great ambience...wonderful for a special occasion!
The Brunch Buffet was affordable but still not worth it-particularly if you don't like eggs or salmon. The advertised Applewood Smoked Bacon was nowhere to be found. Feels like because we ordered the buffet the server didn't feel the need to pay any attention to us. It was not what you would expect at the Four Seasons.
Change in Cobb Salad presentation was disappointing!
Service was very good!
Very nice, and classic! Good value, great environment!
Very attentive staff and great dry martinis, but the food choice for a brunch was quite limited. Having said that, it was delicious.
We visited Allium right after Valentine's Day, so it was really quiet. We enjoyed everything. Some highlights: Sarah, our server was outstanding-funny, witty, and knowledgeable about the menu. Tuna Tacos were interesting, Pappadelle was really tasty, as were the Waygu sliders. Simple, but very tasty. One highlight was ordering the Davis Bynum Pinot Noir, 2015. Very smooth and something you could drink all night long. A little pricey at $18. per glass. All the servers were polite and very willing to make sure we were happy. Finally, do try the Lavash--a sorta warm homemade cracker flatbread. It's something playful and yet addicting. We love forward to our next visit. Thank you, Sarah, for a wonderful evening.
Great breakfast & amazing service. Thank you Stacy
Sarah & Chef Jose was spectacular make the evening very memorable... and the lovely hostess Kim. Gray staff & awesome food. TJ thanks as well
We arrived at the hotel on Valentine's Day and opted to have dinner there after a long drive. We got one of our favorite tables by the window. The food was terrific as always. The service was a bit slow despite the fact that the restaurant was not full, which surprised us since we have eaten here for many years and never had service issues. We had never seen our waiter before; perhaps he was new.
Allium has a warm inviting ambience. Our guests have been looking for such a warm comfortable environment to go to in this area. They are new to Streeterville. They are thrilled about having this lobby and restaurant to come to during this cold winter season!!
The Sunday brunch was very good and priced fairly at $38/person.
we went for restaurant week and had a 3 course meal for lunch. The chestnut soup was outstanding ,the dessert very good and entrees were good.
I would not hesitate to go back next year.
The poached pear with blue cheese was divine, simple salad on the side. Our waitress was Catherine and she was simply delightful although the space was busy, she was so friendly and helpful. The Theodore and the Resposado and spice cocktails were absolutely on point, we were very happy with our choices, can’t wait to see what the spring cocktails will be.
Terrible experience. Food arrived cold. Asked for wine had to remind waiter to bring it. Asked for bread it never arrived. Really not good.
Catherine was wonderful!
AndrewM, Thank you for your feedback regarding Catherine! We will be sure to make sure she is recognized for her efforts! Warm regards, William Mitchell, Allium General Manager
We had NYE dinner here and it was not worth the cost. Food was fine but not served hot enough; we had a guest who was a vegetarian and though the kitchen was alerted to their need a month earlier, every one of her courses but one was a complete disappointment (the 'entree' was four squares of barely warmed tofu over a sloppy 'salad.') We complained about this and they brought out a plate of grilled broccolini and cauliflower with multiple cloves of garlic (at least it was hot.) Small touches were missing - like a tablecloth - despite the high price point. Will not return.
Good Evening AmyW, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable insight regarding your New Years Eve experience. I am sorry to hear that your dinner with us did not meet your expectations. I can assure you that your feedback will be shared with the team to make improvements for the future. Thank you again for your review, I truly hope that we will have the opportunity to regain your trust in Allium in the future. Warm regards, William Mitchell, Allium General Manager
Hostess never checked us in on Open Table. Burger was not quality of past visits.
I was disappointed with the holiday tea. I have experienced a few different teas downtown and this one was nothing memorable. The scone was good but all other items seemed stale.
Great service from our waiter and the food was great, nice job!
We had a fabulous Xmas Eve Brunch at Allium. Service and ambiance were fabulous, and food and drinks were perfect. They accommodated our family with two small children so seamlessly. We will definitely be back!
Went there for lunch. Mahi Mahi tacos were outstanding, as was the service. The lobby, restaurant, and even the elevator area has museum quality artwork including Warhol, Lichtenstein. Also numbered lithographs of Magritte and Matisse.
Overall experience was great.
Great setting, lovely table. Good food. Service a little slow.
Very disappointed. The restaurant was just average. Especially for what we paid. There are so many great restaurants in Chicago. Try them first.
Service was very poor. Dirty plates were left on the table until we asked for them to be removed. Food on buffet was not replaced when empty and this four seasons hotel was had trash laying everywhere in the entryway. #notimpressed
Great atmosphere and a view of Michigan Ave. The service was outstanding. Loved the rabbit potpie!
The Four Seasons Lobby was wonderfully decked out for the Holidays and the entrance to the Allium surrounded in garland. The Afternoon Tea was elegant with amazing sweet and savory morsels. The wait staff was attentive. It was a festive atmosphere perfect for December.
Birthday luncheon for Granddaughter! Very nice dessert treat for her!!
Service sometimes inconsistent as far as attention, but overall acceptable.
Pricey, but excellent service. Had Cauliflower soup and soup of the day: Parsnip soup: both were
excellent. Had lobster rolls for lunch. You get three small brioche buns with lobster meat. They were good, but for $24 I've had better with more lobster. Lunch for 2 people without drinks was $100.
Probably would try another place for lunch
Had a reservation at Allium to celebrate a birthday. The food was wonderful, views were exquisite, and the service perfection. I would definitely recommend it and had just a great experience overall.
Pretty room at a great location. Should have arrived sooner than 1:45pm. We were told that the staff starts cleaning up around 2. That comment rushed us.
