    As always, the service was amazing. Our waiter was on the spot and attentive without being intrusive. My poke bowl was excellent, which is why I continue to order it every time I go. The restaurant was very festive looking and a nice break from the dreariness of the outside world.

    A wonderful surprise. Quiet and great servers. The menu was slightly eclectic and really nice interpretations of pasta and seafood. Also steaks and pork. Desserts were to die for. Just a great overall dining experience.

    The service was first class and my guests enjoyed the food. Deviled egg appetizer could have been a bit bigger.

    Stopped in here for brunch before catching the train back home after our anniversary celebration - staff was so attentive and kind, surprising us with the most amazing crème brûlée!! Nice, quiet atmosphere and everyone was so friendly. Also, right across from Millennium Park:)

    The holiday decor was outstanding, the server was energetic, friendly and efficient. The food was historic Walnut Room fare. The extra touch of a fairy princess assisting my grandchild with a special wish made the experience even more memorable.
