Didn’t even get to eat. The waiter never came back around to ask us what we wanted. We waited 25 minutes before we got up and went somewhere else to eat. Wasn’t a big selection, wouldn’t recommend.
Wonderful food and even better bar. Classic drinks are making a comeback here. Staff knows what they are doing and do it well.
Dear Tommy Gunn, Thank you for taking the time and share your experience with us in Atwood. We appreciate the sentiment. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Atwood is our pre-concert go to before a show at Chicago Theatre. Although promptly seated for our 6:15 reservation, yet our server didn’t come by to greet us or ask for our drink order until we flagged the host who was walking by, for help 10 minutes into our visit. The restaurant was busy but it wasn’t full. It was a frustrating start that also saw food delays for a simple burger and a spinach salad.
Our entrees were tasty when they finally did arrive yet we were unable to place a drink order for a bit because our server seemed to ignore us and/or disappear again. We finally ordered another round which arrived quickly this time. Our server’s service was definitely “off”, he never apologized and addressed any of the challenges. This was disappointing and it isn’t likely we’ll be back. Too bad for sure.
Perfect spot for before theater dinner. We had the squash and apple soup, shared a HUGE salad and focaccia bread. All were delicious. The service was prompt and attentive.
Atwood is a relatively unpretentious place for finer dining in State St with sophisticated decor and a great menu.
Dear HannahK, Thank you. We appreciate your time in sharing this nice point of view and are absolutely thrilled you enjoyed the experience with us. Kindly, Debra Torres General Manager
Good food, lively atmosphere. Very nice waiter- tho he didn’t show up right away to inquire or offer beverages. Valet parking was very expensive.
Dear Lynn Z. Thank you for writing up a review. Say if you plan to return to the loop, you will find that parking with our valet is one of the best prices around. Plus waiting in our lounge is a nice bonus. Kindly, Debra Torres General Manager
The service was outstanding
Dear Cindy, Thank you kindly for the praise on our staff. We appreciate the time you took to share this review. We cant wait to serve you again! Cheers, Debra Torres General Manager
We originally had issues with our server but the manager stopped by and rectified the issue and removed one of the items that we had problems with from the bill. That’s good customer service!
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking to time to write to us. It was a pleasure to serve you. Please come again. Bests, Debra Torres General Manager
Put us at high top table in bar. When I made reservation there was no indication it would be a high top table. I would have chosen another restaurant if I had known. It was very uncomfortable loud and busy with people going by. Also we were overly bothered by people repeatedly asking if they could clear our plates before we were ready. Food and service was great but we will not return unless we have at least 6 people to avoid the situation. I did ask to change but they then only had a table behind the bar by the cash station which was not very nice..
Dear Frequent Diner, We absolutely will always try to accommodate your preference for a low table. I have noted that in your profile for future visits. Thank you for letting us know and for taking the time to write to us. Kindly, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Great strategic location in downtown Chicago. Very nice dining room/atmosphere. The food and the service are always very good. Highly recommended.
Food was delicious and service was lovely. Very friendly environment and cute spot I never anticipated to have such great food!
Dear Anonymous, It is nice to hear you enjoyed dining with us in Atwood. Please come back soon, and by summer, as we will have a new menu for more goodies to enjoy! Regards, Debra Torres
Food was just OK. Restaurant week menu was fair. Soup was very good. Veggie burger was fair and cookies were good. Waitress was pleasant and efficient and brought birthday treats for dessert.
Dear FoodLover, Happy Belated Birthday, Thank you for sharing your visit with us. Kindly, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Good for pre theater
Efficient service, beautiful location, surprisingly not very loud. Enjoyed my crispy-skinned salmon and my companion loved the burger. The bar even crafted a custom mocktail at his request. Definitely try the spinach dip; it’s heavenly.
Dear James H. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your dining experience. Thank you for dining with us, and for taking the time to share it online. Kindly, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Menu not very extensive and food is not very good.
Overall, it was a nice pre-theater dinner!
I would do it again!
Always great service and food. Good for a business lunch with quick service and a varied menu.

Dear Josea, We appreciate your support and are so glad you continue to enjoy your experiences with us in Atwood. Kindly, Debra Torres General Manager
We dined on a Monday evening. First stop at the bar with a wonderful bartender who was nice to swap out a wine that I did not like for another and help my husband discover a new cocktail. We love the small and cozy space with nice seating with views of State and Washington streets from large windows. Great Chicago location. I have to eat strictly gluten free and have always had a lovely meal with Atwood. The spinach artichoke dip came with cucumber slices for me and grilled sourdough for my husband and was awesome. I am a burrata cheese fan, but did not enjoy the mortadello(sp?) that came with it (balony!). The salmon and steak were perfect and the creme brulee was great. The service by Eric was stellar. We will, of course, be back.
Dear Pamela, We are happy to hear you enjoyed your overall experience in Atwood. Thank you for taking the time to share this with us and mentioning the serer, Eric as well. we cant wait to reward him for making a good impression. We hope to serve you again.

Birthday lunch for my wife at one of her favorite places
Dear Anonymous Thank you for nice 4 star posting and sharing that your wife likes Atwood enough to make it one of her favorites! Belated birthday wishes to her and hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
We have chosen Atwood as our destination pre-theater restaurant. The lunch menu suits all in our party. Rocky, our host, immediately greeted us with a bright smile and noted that we were seeing Mean Girls from the reservation. He was exceedingly gracious to move us to another table that we felt was more comfortable. The BLT sandwich with the batter fried tomato received rave reviews. I had the mussels with a creamy broth that was so savory. We shared a delightful spinach and pear salad. Juan, our server accommodated our request to split an entree order and made sure to brew us a fresh pot of hot coffee at the end of our meal. Atwood has a premier location and great food. I highly recommend it.
Dear Dining Diva, Thank you! We are happy to hear that your experience with us in Atwood with to your delight. We will be sure to mention your review to Juan (server) and Rocky (host) as we all appreciate it very much. Thank you for taking the time to write about it and we hope to serve you again.

Food was beautifully prepared but all of it was very sweet. Perhaps it was the combination we chose.

We went to dinner after seeing a movie at the Siskel and really enjoyed our meal at Atwood. The restaurant is casually cool with floor to ceiling windows for good people watching. Our waiter was excellent-very personable and helpful but not around too much. The chicken salad quesadilla were light and tasty plus the fried chicken sandwich was delicious—perfect for after the movie—a fun evening!
Dear RonC, Happy New Year. Thank you for joining us for a meal and part of your evening over the holiday season. We hope you will return again when you are in the Chicago Loop. Kindly, Debra Torres General Manager
I had never been there before. Brought my 19 year old granddaughter.
We loved the atmosphere... the fact that you could people watch out the large windows.Very nice.
Waiter was good no complaints. Only downside was the chopped salad I ordered was huge and way too much green stuff and not enough variety in the ingredients... it was good... just way to large..I am a foodie and a great cook... my advice ... make the salad smaller ...less green and more color in the ingredients.
Anyhow the granddaughter loved the place... and I loved the iron fretwork I could see near the elevators.
I was born and grew up in the city and rarely get to Chicago...so was fun to go to a new place. Cute spot.
No real complaints. Enjoyed our visit.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for choosing to visit the Hotel and dine in Atwood. We are quite historic and even on the architecture walking tour. It is always nice to hear when someone was pleased by the experience. Warmly, Debra Torres General Manager
Atwood was just ok. Nothing special, but it was easy to get to the theater on time from there.

Lost our Open Table reservation, but still seated us after we showed them the email verification.
Great location for before and after shows. Live music was a plus. Food and service was mediocre.
Dear Rebelmom, Thank you for stopping by before a show. We hope you will try us again on another occasion as we can surely do a better experience with you. Kindly, Debra Torres General Manager
