The prices were quite high and the portions were tiny. I was in a rush and heading to a show down the street, and felt trapped into taking what I could get here and had to have a snack at the theater.
Dear Michael, Thank you for joining us this weekend. Sorry to hear you were not filled on one course due to time restraints. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
We went to Atwood pre-theater. The ambiance was nice and casual. The service was good and the food was good, though loaded with salt. I ordered the chopped salad. We also ordered the spinach artichoke dip, that too was salty and challenging to eat as there is melted cheese in the middle.
Dear Meatball, Thank you for dining with us before your show. We appreciate all comments, good and otherwise and I will alert the kitchen about the salt. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Atwood is a great Loop destination. The interior is beautiful and bright with lots of natural light. We've gone a few times for lunch business meetings and they always have plenty of great options for everyone. I would definitely go back for dinner and drinks to check out that side of the menu.
Creative and delicious food and attentive service.
Dear David Yale, Thank you kindly for joining us for a meal. It was our pleasure to serve you. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Our waiter was really great! Food was very good.
Dear Cuisinegirl, Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience. We appreciate hearing this and will let your server know. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
From the moment we walked in we were treated exceptionally well. Our waitstaff was attentive throughout the evening. The cocktail and wine selection was excellent and while the menu is not extensive it is very creative and offer something for everyone including gluten-free vegan and regular food. Highly recommend this very unique restaurant and dining experience.
Dear FoodDude, Thank you for dining in Atwood and sharing your positive sentiment. We truly appreciate it. Please come back soon when you are in the Chicago Loop! Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Our dinner on Friday night was excellent! The staff was very accommodating to my mother in her wheelchair, and we had an overall great time.
Dear Lill: Thank you so very much for dining with us. It was a pleasure to serve and your mother. we hope to see you both again soon. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Cheese platter was very good!
Dear RussellS, The cheese platter has become an atwood must on the menu. We are so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing the sentiment. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Slow service, appetizer was cold and had to be sent back. Very expensive.
Dear Anonymous, We are sorry to hear that your experience was not our normal standard and what you anticipated. Please do visit again when you are in the Chicago Loop area. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
Service and food was disappointing
Food was bland; cut of steak was terrible - full of gristle and fat, tough, and over cooked.
The food is nothing special, but it is good. I would not recommend based on the price.
Dear Mack: Thank you for joining us in Atwood, Chicago, Loop. We are glad to hear that you are happy with the value of the meal. Please join us again whenever you visit Chicago as our menus change seasonally. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
I miss the old Atwood interior so much! This is nice enough, but much less elegant, much more pedestrian. Menu limited but food pretty and delicious. Server picked up on our conversation that we were celebrating my companion's birthday, and brought complimentary sorbet with a candle! Very nice. But the "Star Pineapple" logo everywhere is so tacky, and really lowers the ambience of that beautiful Reliance building setting, and the cafe space. So not the former Atwood!
Dear DeborahW, Thank you kindly for the remarks and we are glad you enjoyed the visit, alas changes. Please come back so we can take god care of you as we do. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
My parents celebrated their anniversary and really enjoyed themselves!
Chopped salad was huge! Always a good experience at Atwood
Dear MichaelA, thank you for having a meal here with us in the Atwood, Chicago. Its good to hear you liked the size of the chopped Salad, more salad is more healthy! Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
The drink service to our table was extremely slow. And we asked for a martini— just a little dirty. It had way too much olive juice. Asked for blue cheese olives and got unstuffed olives. The table server got us what we wanted but the bar service was dry not good.
Dear MonicaK, We appreciate all comments as we strive to please. We are always willing to remake a drink to suit you best. Please let us try again to make it it perfect for you! Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
This used to be a “go to” place when I had special guests in town. I was disappointed on my recent visit that the simplified menu choices and quality of food were just average. A nice meal, but nothing special.
MTNGIRL, Thank you for the review, please stop by again when you are in the Chicago Loop looking for a meal. Kind regards, Debra Torres General Manager
I’ve been here many times over the years and always found Atwood to be pretty good. This time, however, the food was over-salted, bland and uninspired.
Dear Tcmman: We are so sorry to hear that your meal was not to your liking. We are always willing to accommodate or modify a dish. Please try us again. thank you kindly, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Service was spotty, at one point we were waiting for a dessert menu & tried to catch the waiter's eye three times with no success. Strip steak was pretty average... for $36 not the best value. Salmon is a better bet , in this diner's opinion.
The most disappointing thing was the noise level. There were not even that many people there ( 5:30 pm on a Thursday)... however all the hard surfaces and terrible acoustics made even speaking to the diner next to you a challenge.
We had " Hamilton " tickets. That would be the only reason to return here... its proximity to the theater.
Dear Midwestfoodie, Its unfortunate that your visit to the Atwood was not to your liking. I am not sure if you were seated somewhere else that it would have helped but its not always loud here. Again, our apologies for the busy sounds. Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
There is nothing on the menu for a vegetarian. I ordered the chopped salad without bacon and chicken. No discount for no protein. Then asked about substation of salmon and it would have been a $29 up charge. I would have paid more but $29 and no credit for no chicken and bacon. I have crossed Atwood off my list. The manager came over and apologized as did the waiter. Rethink your menu. The apologies were pretty worthless.
Dear Anonymous, We always make recommendations and adjustments to a menu item whenever possible, so sorry we missed the mark. Please know that we listen and learn. Your comments are welcomed in our earnest to please and satisfy our guests. Thank you for the feedback. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
We enjoyed the meal. The service and food were excellent. We will go again.
Dear Charles C. Thank you for dining with us and please come back soon, so we can take care of you again! Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Our server was very helpful and the food was fantastic. There was one mix up with our order, but it was rectified quickly.
Dear Carol R. We are glad to hear that the recovery went well and saying so. Please visit us again when you are in the Chicago Loop. Thank you for dining with us! Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Bring back the old Atwood. The menu is limited, but we both chose a chicken dish with Salsa Verdi. It was too spicy and the hash underneath had a very weird texture. They took back both dishes and we changed to steak. It was good. Service was sketchy- no water refills and we were given the wrong bill. I honestly don't think I would go back because of the noise and limited menu. Again, we have been to the new Atwood a few times, but when compared to the old menu, quieter ambiance and service, the old Atwood was a place I loved to go to- not this one. There are better choices in that neighborhood.
Dear DarleneW. I am sorry to hear that your visit was not up to par. Please let me know what kind of cuisine you prefer. We are always open to menu suggestions. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood Manager
very good food, nice service, even a pleasant trio on a Saturday nite. all is all a nice surprise. would recommend it.
Dear David C. We are glad you enjoyed Saturday evening here. Our menus are seasonal and the live music is a new addition to the evolving Atwood restaurant. We are always happy to hear any comments and its nice to receive your positive review. We hope to see you again when dining in the Chicago Loop. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager

Dear MaryW, We are so glad to hear that Atwood turned out a successful experience for you all. Thank you for sharing and come back soon! Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Service was inattentive, had to keep finding server by asking bus folks to send him to us for every step. BUT the chopped salad was super! and LARGE...split it!
Historic setting in The exquisite Reliance Building.
Dear SuzyR, Thank you for having lunch with us, and for informing us that the server was not as attentive. It is a always good to learn about both the downside of the experience and the upside. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Courteous, professional ,efficient service along with well-prepared food makes this a good choice for breakfast

Dear Thomas, Thank you for popping into Atwood in the Chicago loop. We appreciate the kind words. Much appreciated, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Portions were a bit small for the vegan dish.
Dear Anonymous: Which dish was it, Thanks for letting us know so we can improve. We appreciate you dining with us. Regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Our party of four had a lovely late (1 pm to 2:30 pm) lunch experience at Atwood on Saturday. A wonderful booth surrounded by glass made it great for conversation. Our server was terrific - friendly and very attentive, with a good sense of humor. The salads and omelet were terrific - as were the Bloody Mary's. Exceeded expectation, especially the stellar service.
Dear Globetrotter14, We are thrilled to hear your lunch visit was to your liking. We couldnt have done it without you! Please come back soon. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Great location, fantastic food, and excellent service. Such an easy place to eat before seeing a show!
We had the flat bread with pineapple, goat cheese, & chicken. The flat bread was a bit burnt. But it was yummy.
I had the Atwood buger. It was very good. The seasoned fries were outstanding. Our waitress was excellent. My friend had the chopped salad, and she enjoyed it.Had the dark chocolate gelato. YUM! The restaurant is inside a hotel and it's very beautiful. We didnt drink that night so I cant comment on that. The menu could be expanded a bit.
Dear ReneeA: Thank you for choosing Atwood. We hope you can return soon, perhaps try a drink from the beverage menu. To learn about our drink specials please follow us on Facebook or Instagram. Cheers! Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
We got there at 1pm on a Saturday and they were serving brunch only, with 2-3 actual lunch options. It was disappointing to not have lunch options.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for stopping in for brunch. We truly appreciate your notation about the limited amount of entree offerings at brunch. We are willing to accommodate special requests and often can offer dinner items earlier. This instance is a teaching moment for us. Again with gratitude, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Would have liked a table by the window and a more knowledgeable waiter. Why the pineapple theme??
Dear Dinealot: Thank you kindly for the note. To answer you question; the pineapple is the symbol of hospitality, and we embrace is it so much as to name our hotels Staypineapple. We love to show off the symbolic fruit throughout the property. Also, I am very much interested to know what you were asking the waiter? We are always improving our servers knowledge as our menus are seasonal and any input is valuable to us. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
We had an amazing meal! The service was perfect and everything was wonderful! Thank you Atwood for a wonderful anniversary dinner!
Dear Anonymous, Happy Anniversary and much Joy! We are delighted you celebrated your special occasion with us. It is so nice of you all to say so, thank you! Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
Great environment, good food. Perfect for a coffee chat with your boss.
Dear Brandon: Thank you for choosing Atwood for your important chat with your boss. We are so pleased to hear we were suitable for such an important meeting. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
I love the ambiance. It is very light and bright. The service was great and the food was delicious. I thought there menu was very limiting.
Dear Nicko4: We appreciate your feedback, thank you kindly. Please visit us again, as the menu evolves with seasonal ingredients and specials. Kind regards, Debra Torres Atwood General Manager
This was a fine hotel restaurant but there are many better options near by.
First bad review on OT. Bad service, bland & cold food. Avoid this place
