We visited Atwood on a whim after our anniversaty date at the Chicago Sympony Orchestra. It's easily within walking distance and we avoided the post-show gridlock in the parking garage. The ambiance was perfect for discussion and the staff was friendly and attentive - the perfect environment for creating a special memory!
Wonderful atmosphere. Attentive service. Great cheese board. Interesting panna cotta.
We enjoyed our pre-concert meal at Atwood. While the food was good but not extraordinary, the service was friendly and attentive which means a lot. Relaxed and spacious dinning room and it was not too loud.Food is on the rustic side, well prepared and nicely presented just not mind-blowing. If you are in that neighborhood, it's a good go!
A friend recommend Atwood as a good place to dine. We had a 5:45 reservation, (but would have preferred 6:30) and upon arriving at 5:40, the restaurant was only about 20% occupied. It didn't start filling up until after 7.
The service was excellent except the server checked on us a little too often in my opinion, disrupting our conversation. (But that's better than not checking enough.)
The pork chop my date ordered was tough, but they did take it off our check. The salmon I had was very good and so were our salads. The wine pour I thought was small for $15 a glass. Also the Coke came in a very small bottle (maybe 6 or 8 oz) and we were charged separatly for each bottle. The chocolate cake dessert they serve is delicious but enough for 6 people.
Amazing as always
We had lunch there prior to a matinee. Our server, Jeff, was excellent. Excellent location for lunch prior to any matinee in the theatre district.
Our meal started with some Beet Toast and pumpkin soup. For dinner we had Amish Chicken and Brussels Sprouts!
Beet Toast with pistachios/goat cheese had nice flavor profiles with 2 kinds of beets. Pumpkin Soup was savory and had pumpkin seeds in the soup! FANTASTIC!
Amish Chicken was extremely moist/flavorful along with the puree of potatoes matched perfectly with the Brussels Sprouts which were sweet and crisp at the same time.
Every item was unique and memorable with along with lighting up the taste buds.
Great food and cocktails. And he cake is CRAZY !!
Maybe is what we ordered but the food isn’t that good. Maybe it’s what we order, don’t order the salmon or the mushroom dish.
A small group of 4 of us went to Atwood prior to seeing a show. The waitstaff was very helpful in gently encouraging us to place our orders so that we would not miss the show. Only real negative was the description on a few of the small plates from the waitress. Portions were much different than what was explained/expected.
