In town for the weekend with our children. We’ve been to The Palm Chicago before but it’s been several years. They recently completed a renovation - beautiful ceilings and fun light fixtures. Our meal was amazing - lobster and filet all around. Steaks were cooked to perfection and enjoyed by all. The sides were especially yummy too - creamed spinach and whipped potatoes. The Manager deserves a special call out - she overheard my ten year old commenting on the half and half side and even though we didn’t order it, she brought out a plate of it for us to share. That alone will make certain we have a return trip soon. Well run restaurant - and we won’t skip the half and half next time! Great service, great food. Can’t ask for more! More

The Breakfast Buffett always is fantastic. I have frequented this restaurant every time I travel to Chicago even when not staying at the Omni. Always top quality of fresh fruit, made to order omelet or eggs. The prosciutto and cheese and fresh bread is great with freshly made spreads for bread ...salmon spread, corn salsa etc... The view of Michigan Avenue is great. Ordering off menu also does not fail to be fantastic The staff are very attentive and professional with a smile. Thank you David for your kindness!! More
