Close to the Hilton Hotel, so it was convenient for convention attendees. There were six of us, and we all had something different. There were gluten-free and vegetarian options, and the prices were reasonable. The service was good. The Open Table app made the reservation process easy- even from my seat in a plenary session!

Steakhouse | South Loop, Chicago

Beautiful restaurant with somewhere for everyone: white table cloth dining room, energetic bar with full food service, outside terrace, and private rooms to accommodate any size party. The service is on point and the food delicious. I have sat in the dining room for a more private experience, in the bar which always has an upbeat vibe, have hosted a holiday party for 50 in one of the private banquet rooms (the service was beyond any I've experienced anywhere else in downtown Chicago) and have now eaten on the new 2nd floor terrace where we were treated to fireworks coming from Soldier Field. The Chicago Firehouse will not disappoint in food, drink, or service! More

I used Woven & Bound for a business breakfast. Our group of nine was seated promptly and the table setting was really nice with several pitchers of coffee and lovely ceramic place settings. Our waitress came by promptly with water and juice and kept the refills flowing throughout. I was impressed by the service, the buffet options, and the interior decor. More

Mediterranean | South Loop, Chicago

My husband and I happened to be in the neighborhood at dinner time and decided to try Kurah. We had a wonderful meal. He had the rack of lamb, their signature dish, and I had biryani, a delicious dish with chicken, lamb and rice. The restaurant specializes in Lebanese cuisine. There is Arabic music playing loud enough to hear, but quiet enough not to interfere with conversation. Both meals were extremely enjoyable, and we plan to go back to try some other menu options.
