    I was unimpressed with the service. I was seated for over 10 minutes before first approached, and the restaurant wasn’t even busy, at all. The server wasn’t alerted by the host that I was seated. And twice after my food was delivered to my table (by someone other than my server), I had to seek out my server to get further assistance (like to order a glass of wine). The food was good, but the overall experience lacked.

    Good burger, and well-made cocktails. Service was slow, one item never arrived, and we had to beg to have our water refilled, which happened only once the entire meal - as we received our check. The ambiance is nice but uninspired. Overall, the meal was sufficient, but not at all special and noticeably mediocre service.

    It is not listed in the website that it is an interior hotel restaurant. That was my only gripe. We wanted more of a romantic view and not an inside restaurant. Food however made up for it and the waiter was amazing.

    We came here for Valentine’s Day. The food and overall atmosphere was great - loved the Valentine’s Day prix fixe (winter butternut squash risotto with truffle starter, filet with two jumbo shrimp) and my boyfriend was able to order calamari and steak for himself. The service was very strange and frustrating. It took 30 minutes for us to get served our wine, and this was after we had ordered and already eaten the calamari appetizer. Our server was MIA when we tried to get his attention. Other than that the meal was wonderful and they gave me a send off rose with two bags of three yummy Valentine’s day themed cookies.

    The food was not as good as we expected - and the scallops were a bit undercooked and cold when they came out. But we thought the cocktails were all very good (although one of the ones I had was more of a shooter than an actual cocktail) and the service was nice. A bit overpriced, but I would definitely recommend for drinks - or if you’re staying in the hotel.

    I’ve been to the Rooftop Bar before but never ETA and we were not disappointed. I was looking for a restaurant near the hotel for in town coworkers and ETA was a great location. The food and service was amazing. It felt like a personalized experience as I was greeted by name when I arrived and left the restaurant.

    What an outstanding experience. I won a “Dinner for 4” at an auction. From the moment we sat down, our waiter Wade, was excited to explain our food journey and said it would be a lot of food. I under estimated him. We had so much food for leftover too.

    The setting for the restaurant was great and right in a hotel lobby. It was dark and not overly noises. However, the prices were way too high for the food options. The menu was very small and needed some more selections.

    I wanted a quiet place with great food for a quick business dinner and I found it at ETA. What great food, quiet and great ambiance. Enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed the braised beef. Looked as great as it tasted. Ate every bit of it and the bread was exceptional too. Afterward walked down to the Navy Pier which is quite close. Bonus. I shall return again when back in Chicago.

    I can usually be skeptical of “hotel based” restaurants, but this place was outstanding. The service was spot on from minute one, highly attentive and amazingly professional. The drinks were superb. The food, wow. So well done. Our steaks were of a “fine steakhouse” comparison, and the sides were a delight. You MUST get the crispy brussels! I will definitely be back.
