Very nice dinner prior to attending the theater. Service was great: attentive and friendly. Drinks great. Food was very good but for the entrees (salmon) being over-done. Not bad enough to send back, but not as on-target as one would expect from an otherwise very nice restaurant.

Good place for a business meal. Not too loud. Nice environment. Good staff. Food was just ok. My salad was a huge mound of shaved lettuce on a flat plate and got all over the table. It also had very few toppings. For ~$20 I would have expected a little more going on.

This restaurant used to be so pretty - now it looks like a cafeteria. I had very expensive meat loaf and mashed potatoes and wish I had sent them back. They were dry and less than average. My husband had an amazing BLT sandwich. The wine and server were fine. Some good, some bad. This restaurant should do better.

The Atwood is a great option if you are on State St shopping or going to the theater. With its big windows, it is very airy and has a good view of outside. The menu is short and simple, but the food is good and well priced -- you can always find something good to eat. The service was super friendly.

I could not in good judgement recommend the Atwood resultant in the iconic pineapple hotel on the Chicago loop to a friend
The service was exceptionally slow
It was not the fault of the staff assigned tables but the quantity of tables assigned to the available personnel
Food arrived over cooked and dry or cold and both
The presentation was really poor and to put it mildly
Scraped together on a plate would be kinder but an honest description
The Atwood which used to be decent should be avoided
Try Triattoria No 10 since the staff menu and overall ambience are superb

We were visiting from Florida and had tickets to see Hamilton. The Atwood was the perfect pre-theater dining experience. My husband and I are both vegetarians. There were many options for us to choose from and the food we had was delicious! Very polite and professional wait staff. Excellent experience. We will definitely go back next time we are in town.

My eggs benedict was pretty poor -- too creamy but bland at the same time. Ham was thin and not tasty, eggs were even bland. On the positive side, our waiter and the staff gave us ample time together -- my friend has stage 4 cancer and we needed unrushed time to spend time together. Despite it being a busy day for brunch, they didn't try to rush us out.

The menu is very limited at Atwood and they don't have any additional specials. My salmon was good, although way over priced. my daughter got the butternut squash because there really were limited options. She did not like it. They didn't take it off the bill but brought over a $4 sorbet. The Creme Brulee was really good. Atmosphere is nice but with such a limited menu I would not go back.

I HAVE recommended it - for well over a decade. The product is still excellent - great cocktails and apps and dinner. The bar staff was snippy, the hostess acted incredibly uninformed about her establishment. The women at the table behind us were commenting that it was so bright in there that it looked like an operating room. We concurred, but were waiting until 7:30 to say anything. When nothing happened moving into prime dinner time, I kindly asked a server, then the hostess, then a busboy if the spotlights could be at all dimmed. I saw the hostess walking around looking at light switches, but not actually touching any. It remained blindingly bright until we left at about 8:45, deciding to dessert and drink somewhere else because it was too much to bear.

The beer I wanted they just ran out of. The main entree I wanted they ran out of. Another entree I was thinking of getting they ran out of. I overheard the waitress at the next table telling people who had just been seated the two entrees that they were out of, and now an additional entree was added to that list also. It was to the point where I would have said "well what do you have?".

I can’t eat onions so we had then leave them off on our pepperoni and cheese flatbread. What we got was a very sparsely covered serving that had very little cheese and not much more pepperoni. Manager took it off the bill. The Atwood burger was good. Actually 2 2ounce patties (?) on a bun with cheese. The wine was fine. Total bill for burger and two glasses of wine minus flatbread and tax was $40.
We’d go back but it isn’t at the top of our list.

What an awesome birthday afternoon experience! The Atwood has a very cozy waiting area, polite waiters and staff and most of all delicious food. The Crispy salmon was to die for! I never eat the skin, but this time -- I ate it all! Super crispy and delicious! Restaurant Manager, Mr. Joseph Swanchara was so kind and attentive to us. He came over to our table several times to check how things were. He was so sweet to offer me a birthday treat on the house, their delicious fudge a la mode. Yummy! We never felt rushed (although we did stay a bit longer due to the blocked off street for the Columbus Day Parade). Cousins will be visiting next year for the Chicago Marathon and we definitely plan on staying at the Pineapple Hotel for a few days and dining at your wonderful restaurant again.
