Great food and wonderful service. Beef Wellington was perfection. My scallops were done perfectly.
It’s great I loved every moment
We were celebrating a special occasion and had a great time. The beef Wellington was such an amazing dish - so tender, it cut like butter! The best thing I’ve ate in awhile!
It was a bit pricey, but worth every dime! Loved the beef Wellington! And the cheesecake was one of the best I've ever had!
I had a hamburger that I should have returned. It tasted like burnt bread. I was horrendously sick the next morning. My husband had chicken that he said was just ok. Our dining partners had an overpriced piece of cauliflower that didn't have much taste and a tiny salad. We won't be back.
We’ve been to Booth One/The Pump Room on 6 occasions. Annually to celebrate our first date. This was probably our best experience. They finally acknowledged the occasion even though we mention it every year, the menu was upgraded with excellent changes, the cocktails were wonderful and our service from our waiter was incredible. The staff recognized the importance of this day for us and the server delivered on all that excellently. We will continue returning on an annual basis and maybe more frequently with other guests when we’re looking for a nice meal.
So much for a romantic New Years Eve at was once a great legendary classy restaurant. Disco blasting, food just OK, smart assed waiter, no tablecloths. So damn loud I could not hear my date who was also celebrating a birthday. Ohh but wait, if we wanted more we could have had a HOT DOG on the other side of the ambassador Hotel. Who is running this place? A total joke, never to return.
The service is the best I’ve had.
We had dinner here for New Years Eve. It was decorated beautifully and menu was lovely. Can't wait to return for another visit.
Our New Years Eve dinner at Booth One was near perfect. The atmosphere was all we had hoped, the service was excellent, and the food and drink even better.
Our services was outstanding!!
Our food was Classic!
But our young man ,Levi was the best !
Great evening out !
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Booth One. The food, service and ambiance were amazing. We will definitely be back.
The restaurant is sterile. No atmosphere. The food was just ok. My seabass was delicious but the other two in my party ordered chicken which had no taste at all. Nothing interesting about this place. We had brunch there a while back and thought maybe Lettuce would dress it up a little but they did not. Very disappointed. Sorry.
The service by Levi was great, food was very good and it was great to be back at the old Pump Room, I have not been back in many years. I will make this a regular place. It is alos fantastic that they saved all the old photos from its stellar history, they are all there.
The food & service were outstanding! Everyone had something different & each dish did nit disappoint! The Confit of Duck, Sea Bass & the Steak Oscar were
delicious. We will definitely be coming back!!
Great for our Christmas dinner. Nice selection, nice price, and nice atmosphere. We truly enjoyed the entire experience.
Prix fix Christmas dinner did not meet expectations. Paid a $20 up charge for prime rib and it was so salty that it was inedible and sent it back. Did not have them bring me another piece and just shared my husband’s Wellington, however you would think the server would send a manager over to talk about my inedible dinner. The dessert was a cake that was gummy and had way too much buttercream. Obviously made days before Christmas. Beautiful restaurant but if you are paying that kind of money, you expect a good experience.
We had Christmas diner here and it was really nice! Great ambiance and service.
Returned to the former Pump Room for another Christmas in Chicago celebration and our expectations were exceeded. Booth One's prix fixe Christmas dinner was very special.
This was our second visit to Booth One and it was just as good as the first time. They give wonderful service and the food is fantastic.
Classy setting. Comfortable attentive service. Great music. Good food. A great venue to switch off and disconnect from the outside world.
We went to Booth One for Christmas dinner and it was perfect! The atmosphere was sophisticated and we did not feel rushed. The selection of options was perfect for a holiday meal. The courses were delivered at a perfect pace and the food was very enjoyable. The dining room feels spacious and there is an old school glammy dinner club vibe about the place that seemed just right for Christmas!
Special in every way. Nobody does it better thanks to Sue and her team.
We had higher expectations for Christmas Eve dinner. Quality of food was average. It all seemed mass produced. Even the seafood tower was disappointing. Lots of history in the restaurant with so much potential. Next time drinks at the bar only.
Everything about this restaurant was wonderful...the food, the service, the presentation, the ambience.....and being surrounded by its history made it so special.
Andrew was great!
We had dinner at Booth One for my daughter's 25th birthday and it was fantastic all around!
Beef Wellington and peanut butter pie were AMAZING!!!
My wife and I has an amazing dinner just before Christmas. The food was superb, nice sized portions, amazing flavours and presentation. The staff were great, on top of their game and very friendly. Thanks for a superb dinner.
Loved it. Awesome food, ambience and service. All around perfect!
We have been to Booth One multiple times and it never disappoints. Love! (And they know how to make a proper bourbon whiskey sour)
I have been to many places to eat in Chicago. This was by far THE BEST DINING EXPERIENCE ever. Great ambiance. Great service. Great everything.
This is a super classy establishment with history. We will be back
60th Anniversary celebration for us sorry to say it was a disappointment! dover sole was deboned in the kitchen and the roe was discarded! Beef Wellington was served cut in half,cold and tasteless neither dinner had any garnish on plates. We were expecting a first class establishment as it was when it was "THE PUMP ROOM" and the only thing that was first class about it were the outrageous prices.
Food and service was fine. The Cauliflower as an entrée was inedible and was returned with credit given on our check. One of your staff was kind enough to make a glass of eggnog even though none was prepared.
A restaurant of Booth One caliber should not be placing used silverware back on the table from the place where they have rested after being used
Are six of us live at Lake shore Drive and division and have visited the lettuce restaurants for years and have always enjoyed the food and the service
The service was exceptional
We had a wonderful dinner - the staff was attentive and professional. The food was outstanding - sea bass and prime rib were both done to perfection. When the wine we ordered was unavailable, the wine steward suggested a perfect alternative. Booth 1 is on our short list for all our future visits to Chicago.
Excellent food and service. We both ordered the sea bass and it was excellent. Try the delicata squash!
Booth One lives up to the hype in every respect - food and service and ambiance. Classic Beef Wellington was as it should be, that is to say authentic and delicious. My friend said that the Maine Lobster Risotto induced a "lobster haze". The lemon Napoleon was perfect.
Service was by the book - Andrew was knowledgeable and there when needed. He made excellent recommendations for both food and wine.
The beef Wellington was delicious and staff were very attentive. Great for a birthday celebration. Don’t miss dessert, it was truly notable
We were all thrilled with Booth One. The restaurant is beautiful and quiet and calm so we could chat without screaming. The food was perfect - delicious salads, chicken paillard was yummy and came with artichoke and spinach side. The salmon was also delicious. Cannot recommend enough. Great service too!
