 (Chicago)·Dined 3 days ago

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.

We had great food so we went two night on the bounce. Our only complaints were there aren't enough staff on the front desk so there was quite a wait to be seated. Service was extremely friendly but a little slow. Overall though I would definitely recommend the food, it was great.

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.

This was a pathetic buffet. Truly, we were looking for the rest of it when we started getting our food. After going through the meager buffet, half of our party ended up ordering off of the very limited menu. The crab legs were scarce and the two scrawny ones I got had gray spots throughout the meat, definitely not very fresh. The doughnuts were stale, the steak was chewy, and it was very hard to part with the $300+ for the bill. We left and went somewhere else to eat. The four seasons used to have a notorious Sunday brunch, it was the best in the city but that is definitely no longer the case, we would never come back . The service was great and the venue is always pleasant but the food was a major bust.

The waiter was wonderful--very personable and knowledgeable about gluten free options. Food presentation was impressive. Our party was a bit disappointed in the foods tastiness. The halibut was a bit dry, as was the pork chop. A special anniversary was being celebrated, and the kitchen prepared a special gluten free cake for the celebrants.

Allium can do better. They need a new dinner menu, especially more fish and less caloric entrees. They also need to Rehaul their wine list. There are much better wines available - especially in the white category- that should be on the list.
The ambience is great and the wait staff good. It's the chef and the sommmelier that need updating.
