    Lobster Bisque was amazing. They served cheese cake that was frozen. They did run out of a few items. We were there for the restaurant week menu. Overall a good experience.

    The food was good but our service wasn't what it should have been. Our waiter was not very helpful. We had to keep asking for information regarding specials and prices of market items. He didn't even ask what temp one of is wanted our steaks at. We had to call him back and ask him. The timing of food was also off. We spent a lot of time waiting with no one checking on us.

    Wine is way, WAY overpriced. Laughably so. Service was pretty slow, food was okay, ambience meh (it’s part of a hotel lobby). For all of the great places Chicago has to offer, I would not go back here. The Pappy Old Fashioned was fantastic though.

    I’ll chock it up to it being New Year’s Eve, but the overall dining experience was not what we expected. The staff and service were okay. It was obvious they were short-staffed, so I have no complaints on that. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The food however, was just not on point. Outside of the Caesar salad and lobster bisque, everything we ate was not good. Our burger was overcooked, and my steak for the steak frites was tough. We were one of the last tables seated for the night, so maybe it was just a long evening. The server was gracious enough to offer a free dessert. That was a very nice gesture, but even the dessert (vanilla Carmel cake) was not good. We travel to Chicago often, and loved our stay at The LaSalle, so I will definitely give Grill on 21 another change. The staff was too nice not to. Besides, there were many patrons around us enjoying their meal, enough to make us think our experience was just a fluke.

    Great ambience. Beautiful restaurant inside of the LaSalle Hotel. Service was slow, drinks left a lot to be desired. Ordered the “made table side” Old Fashioned, but it was made at the bar . When ask about the drink made table side, we were told “the cart is too big”. Unfortunately, the food was subpar at best. We had the 21 day dry aged hamburger, unfortunately, it was flavorless and burnt. The Wagyu steak was disappointing. Absence of lobster in the lobster bisque, no char on the “charred” brussel sprouts. If you are staying at the LaSalle Hotel please plan to dine at one of the many great, nearby restaurants.

    The drinks were amazing as was the ambience. Appetizers such as the lobster bisque, shrimp, and fire cauliflower were delicious. However, the bread was frozen in the middle for the second batch and too hard to eat in the first batch. The Caesar salad was not good and taste extremely bitter like the parts of the iceberg lettuce the was used was closest to the root kind of bitter. The salmon was delicious but the side of butternut squash with pomegranate seeds was not. It was underseasoned and the pomegranate seeds weren't edible. The Mac and cheese had flavor, but the consistency was that of chef boyardee or baby food. The Brussel sprouts weren't bad, but required a little more crispness. If you want good drinks, possibly a good appetizer, and a nice ambience, definitely. But the food was a no. Service was great also.

The set up of the restaurant and the LaSalle makes it a beautiful place to unwind. I would totally return to the restaurant for the delicious food and Jake’s hospitality!!! Definitely 5 stars!!

    Birthday dinner with friends. The place is new so they’re still working out the kinks but the food was amazing. Lobster thermidor and the mushrooms were delicious. The lobster bisque was good as well, but not as great as the thermidor and mushrooms. Our server struggled a bit, but the manager helped sort everything out

    Potentially a great place. I think that the kitchen is too small and it’s under staffed. We were there in October and after waiting an hour for our entree, we had to cancel in order to make it to a play. They were apologetic. Saturday night everything went smoothly thru dinner. It then took twenty minutes to order an after dinner drink and the check. Ten minutes later our server dropped the check and said that the drinks would be ready shortly. Unfortunately we had to cancel the order. Our server was good but it looked like he had six tables which is too many for this type of restaurant.We allocated an hour and forty five minutes for dinner which should have been enough. We will probably be back, but not with plans for after dinner.

    We waited almost 2 hours for our food, though the server did communicate how busy the kitchen was; but when the food arrived, it wasn’t anywhere close to what we ordered. We were also brought the wrong bottle of wine initially, and after trying to confirm our order the first time, the manager never returned after the food was removed from our bill, and we went to eat elsewhere.

    The restaurant is well appointed. We sat in a very comfortable booth and had very attentive serum. The menu is appealing, though not inventive. Our eggs were delicious, and the coffee was excellent. It is too bad that not more people know of this place where we had an excellent brunch prior to going to the opera house.
