Intimate spot inside Four Seasons. Great service and food. Bigger portions than I expected. Balanced ambiance (we could have a conversation but there was a dj playing in the lounge area).

From the host, to the server, the manager, everybody where extremly nice. Food is an experience you have to try, is not out of this world, but the different techniques used are worth it

Lots of drama initially to change my table. "We have already assigned all the tables." Yet for two hours later no one arrived. Sat for a VERY long time. No one came to ask about a beverage, etc. Then a manager came. I asked menu questions, he didn't have a clue. Bread course was okay. Nice seeded cracker and sour dough. Pita was weird. Supposedly food is cooked to order. For the brussel sprouts, I don't believe it. In addition, they were just leaves. Steak was good, well cooked. Fries were soggy due to steak on top. It was supposed to include Gem lettuce. Nope. Once again, Four Seasons Chicago Food & Beverage is disappointing.

Adorn is an upscale restaurant in a luxury hotel. That's pretty much it. Nothing more, nothing less.

On a Saturday around 1pm, I was looking for a place to grab something to eat and really wanted to dine somewhere with a nice view of the city. I read on Thrillist that Adorn "offers sweeping views of the Mag Mile and downtown skyline". It does not. It basically has no view, just of the neighboring buildings. My sister and I were pretty hungry so we decided to stay even though it didn't really have the vibe we were looking for. The price-point matches the fact that the restaurant is in a Four Seasons, but the food was just ok, which left us a little underwhelmed.

Maybe their dinner service is the real highlight. I could see it being a good option for hotel guests looking to have a fancy dinner before a show.

The first bite we had was a Ratatouille and Chèvre stuffed squash blossom and it was absolutely delicious. The Yellowtail Crudo, Bread Service and Brussel Sprouts were also delicious. Entrees fell short.

Service was great and it was such a surprise when Chef Sawyer came out.

We went here to celebrate a birthday. The food was ok, nothing knocked our pants off. The best thing was the brussel sprouts. The waiter sold me on the fish saying they did it with tropical flavors, but there was nothing tropical about it , it was pretty standard black cod. The server was fairly attentive, but there were some lags and we had to ask for a few things like another glass of wine, apple juice that he had forgotten. So, overall it was a nice night out, but sort of pricey for what you get , I dont' t think we'll rush back .. although we did see a certain Speaker Madame of the House on the way out , so there was that .

Their Caesar salad is the best thing on the menu. Not many entree's to choose from and so I selected a small plate. It was priced like an entree, but very small and in my opinion even less than an appetizer.

Don't think I would recommend for dinner, although I have a very nice lunch there last week.

The service is excellent. Stacey is great and super attentive. Coffee is good also. I believe they use a home brew. The only complaint was a slew of add-on taxes. I received 20 dollars extra in taxes that made no sense. I was taxed for a N/A beverage. So I was taxed for water. HUH??? I understand the pandemic and I understand there is an extra need for paying staff. But just include it in the price. I gave a generous tip (over 20%) to the server. But come on. There were four extra taxes after the city tax. Just be honest. I don’t mind paying but don’t lie.

A lovely room for an elegant brunch. The quality of the ingredients and plating is superb. However, the kitchen and the service were off pace. Spilled champagne on the table, coffee had to asked for twice to get it to the table, accompaniments to the entrees not as ordered. But it was a Monday holiday morning, so the "A" team might not have been working.

Adorn has one of the best branches in the city. The chef makes a biscuit that is really like a semi sweet cake, as fluffy as they come. The biscuits are to die for. And their omelettes are very good also. Actually, anything you order is very good. And the service is excellent. I have many of my business meetings here and every single person who works there is excellent.

Used to love eating in precious restaurants in this space. Seasons was one of the.best ever. But I don’t think this one has figured things out yet. Appetizers were very good. The Brussels sprouts were fabulous — bright and fresh with chilies and mint. Caesar was different and good. The tomato tart was lovely. But something went wrong between these flavorful, interesting appetizers and the less impressive entrees. The fried chicken was pretty good but that was it. They were out of our first choices (including French fries which figure prominently on the menu. Really? Odd thing to run out of.) The service was great, they addressed the issues quickly, but it just wasn’t a fabulous meal. I thinks they have the potential to be better and I’d try again, but not there yet.

Great vibe. Good eclectic menu. Waiter very knowledgable and kind. A martini was 27.00 I mean come on. I regular sized martini. Just really over priced and not great value when you can buy a bottle of grey goose for 27.00. To be honest, was not fair in value and is the number one reason we won't be back.

Service and food were amazing. The renovated space although much improved and updated was lacking ambience. We sat in the side room where the bar used to be and i felt like we were in a nice cafeteria. They need to add another layer of warmth to the decor.

The new restaurant in Chicago’s recently renovated Four Seasons Hotel is outstanding. The menu is creative, and our dinner was delicious. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, especially our server who worked with us and made excellent recommendations for our vegan diet. We enjoyed the entire experience and will definitely be dining here again!
