My wife and I dined here to celebrate our anniversary. It's a hidden gem as we had the main dining room to ourselves for most of our meal on a Friday night! However there are nights when they're booked for a private event. All of our courses were delicious but the Caesar salad stood out as one of the best we've ever had. The service was excellent and you can't beat the view from the 80th floor.
Thursday night they have a Vibe trio, which was a fantastic addition to the view and the otherwise occasion-ambiance. The staff was very pleasant, and the meal was paced as a good meal should be.
I’ll return here for business, or for special occasion, if ever I am in the neighborhood.
Great food! Great server (Jerry)! Views were awesome!
I would not recommend this restaurant as there are so many better options in Chicago
Food was average to below average. Service was very informal. Not a good dinning experience
Wonderful atmosphere with breathtaking views! Our server was attentive and helpful. We had theater tickets and the restaurant was able to rush our order without sacrificing any quality. The pricing is on the high side, but not unreasonable for the quality. OpenTable users may experience a little trouble getting badges at the security desk in the lobby, but that too was quickly resolved.
Opentable never explained that there were two types of restaurants at Mid America.
A pub and the other formal dining. It was not clear that I had an option.
Mid America sat us in the pub for our anniversary! They knew it as I specifically told them. It was not even busy.
The wait staff was adequate but not great by any stretch. The wine menu was taken from us without asking if we wanted any wine then we had to ask for it back to order.
I asked for an after dinner cocktail chilled and it was served warm. I then had to walk over to the bar and get it chilled. The place was almost empty.
Luckily we made the best of it.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
DIDN'T WANT TO SEAT US BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAST RESERVATION OF THE NIGHT (LEFT US IN THE LOBBY HOPPING WE'D LEAVE), FOOD WAS BURNT/EXTREMELY OVERCOOKED, AND SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE (BUT THE VIEW WAS NICE).
RESTAURANT DIDN'T HAVE US ON THE SECURITY'S LIST IN THE DOWNSTAIR'S LOBBY. LOBBY CALLED SEVERAL TIMES WITHOUT ANSWER. I CALLED AND THE RESTAURANT ANSWERED & CONFIRMED WITH SECURITY. ONCE WE GOT UP TO THE RESTAURANT, WE WERE TOLD TO WAIT WHILE THE HOST CALLED THE MANAGER AS THE KITCHEN HAD ALREADY CLOSED AND STARTED CLEANING. AFTER WAITING AGAIN, I WALKED INSIDE THE RESTAURANT TO SEE THE HOST SOCIALIZING WITH A GROUP. AFTER 45 MINUTES THEY FINALLY SAID THEY WERE READY TO SEAT US. OUR RESERVATION WAS AT 8:30, WE FINALLY OFFERED AT 9:35pm. THE SERVICE WAS POOR, THE APPETIZER WAS BURNT, MY "MEDIUM RARE" SALMON WAS OVERCOOKED AND BROWN ON THE BOTTOM. WHAT A WASTE OF $150!!!!! THE HOST (WHO ALSO SERVED US ALONG WITH ANOTHER WAITER) ACKNOWLEDGED THE OVERCOOKED/BURNT FOOD BUT OFFERED NO REMEDY OTHER THAN THROWING AWAY THE APPETIZER & THEN RELUCTANTLY OFFERED TO RECOOK THE SALMON "IF SHE COULD CONVINCE THE COOK"...
I WILL SAY THAT THE BARTENDER WAS VERY NICE, SHE DESERVES TO BE WORKING ELSEWHERE... I THINK SHE'S THE ONLY REASON WE WERE EVENTUALLY SEATED FOR "DINNER".
For my Chicago vacation the Mid America Club was a twice must do venue. Soaring high views. Greeted with exceptional courtesy right from stepping off the elevator. Experienced a generous portion of Windy City fine quality cuisine. A turkey burger loaded with avocado. A sinfully delightful chocolate cake slice a la mode for the exclamation mark!
This is one happy vacationer!
The Mid America Club is a phenomenal dining experience. The one spot that makes my Chicago trip extraordinary. Ultra high rise views atop Aon Center. Generous servings of fine American cuisine. I was greeted warmly by the hostess for a fabulous first impression. There's NOTHING in my home state of Texas that's literally th high up!
Perfect burger, cocktails, and cake!
Though a Security check in and badge were required in the lobby and there's a dress code, the quick ride to the 80th floor took us to another world. Elegant, stunning view, attentive and friendly staff and great food. One feels special at the Mid-America Club. Everyone at our table was surprised at the quality of the experience and we can't wait to return. If you want fine dining in an intimate space where you can talk to you guests and feel "special", this is the place. Thank you for a great experience.
Nicest dining spot in Chicago. Has to be experienced to be believed... Don't miss out on this!
Everything was wonderful, from the initial greeting to the final farewell. Our table was lovely, fantastic views. The staff always addressed us by name, placecard set on the table, nice touches. Food was excellent, service superb. We regret not having more time to enjoy the experience and will definitely return when not on such a tight schedule.
Staff and quiet atmoshere made for a special occasion dinner before Wicked at Oriental theater.
Very quiet, staff were welcoming and encouraged us to walk around and see 80th floor views from all 4 directions.
Easy 3-4 block walk to theater afterwards.
Food was good, Flat bread and calamari appetizers were excellent!
Not rushed at all.
Great if you have guests and want to impress.
80th floor of the Aon Building, should have unbelievable views of city, unfortunately windows are so small and tables are so poorly spaced it seems that there is no view.
Long having searched for an opportunity to see the view from the Aon Tower, pleased to have found that the public is welcome at the restaurant in the Mid America Club on the 80th floor. Reservations and photo ID required for access to the building, hampered by an apparent lack of communication which caused a slight delay in our being admitted. Once past security, a gracious atmosphere on the 80th floor, spectacular views, very good food reasonably priced. Not a lot of people there for 7:00 on a Saturday night, apparently because information about the restaurant's not easy to find. Look forward to sharing this experience with friends.
We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The service was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The personal service was attentive yet offered the privacy most people want. The food was excellent with some very tasty specials from the chef. The view was everything you would expect from the 80th floor and the restaurant has rooms that face all four points of the compass. The regular prices are at the upper end of the spectrum so some kind of deal is suggested for the average diner. I think we got our money's worth though...even have some nice leftovers. Bear in mind this is a private club but our deal included temporary membership for the restaurant.
Food was very good and the view was spectacular. We appreciated being seated right at the window for a view of the city. Service was perfect. All in all a wonderful, if pricey, meal.
This is a very elegant restaurant. I would have never known about it if it were not mentioned to me by someone I ride the train with. I will come back again. Everyone was very friendly. The food was great. I will recommend to friends and coworkers.
We had such an amazing time at The Mid America Club! The service was exceptional and the view was breathtaking. We were treated like VIP guest the entire time we were there and never felt rushed or out of place. The staff was what made the experience the best. The gave 120% customer service with a smile! We will be going back more often!
Beautiful view, excellent service, good food and you can splurge with a full meal or get a couple of appetizers and enjoy the view. Nice stop after walking around Millennium Park.
My date and I celebrated Valentine's Day at the Mid-America Club this past weekend, we are both only 18 years old and had a wonderful and very memorable time. For past Valentine's Day celebrations we have dined out at the Eagle's Nest at the top of the Hyatt hotel in Indianapolis, IN and the Skyline Club at the top of the One America building also in Indianapolis, IN. Mid-America rivals the Eagle's Nest for the top spot, only because the Eagle's Nest ambiance was slightly better and the 355degree rotating glass-paneled room is hard to beat. The noise level, food, and service was all definitely better than either of the other two however and the view out of limited windows was jaw-dropping. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Everything about our visit was awesome - from the food, to how they made me feel extra special for my birthday! The view was great - we looked out over the lake and could see Navy Pier! Indoor parking for a reasonable price just added to a great experience! If you have a special occasion coming up - this place is a no brainer. Can't wait to go back.
I was here before for a group event - they had a buffet and it was amazing. Decided to go to celebrate valentines day (the saturday after) because the views are spectacular and it seemed classy. I made a reservation and was asked between the dinning room (jacket required) and the grill room (no gym shoes) - we opted for the grill room, but it seemed everyone was being sat in the same area when we arrived. People near us brought their kids, and that made it a bit noisy, but it is what it is. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. Drinks were very good. The dinner menu is fairly small. We ordered the steak, which was just steak and fries. Great steak, but for a fancy place and the price, could have been something other than fries.
Service was elegantly top notch and food was exquisite. Views are breath taking and ambiance was perfect for a romantic night on the town.
We opted for the "Formal Dining Room" and had the place (with it's great northern view) to ourselves. We got the prix fixe valentine's day menu and loved it. Got out for under a $150 for two. Any fears I had about being treated strange since we weren't members were baseless. We enjoyed great attentive service from all involved.
Good food, amazing service, great view and a very romantic ambiance. We felt very comfortable and spent quite a bit of time enjoying the evening. It was memorable..
I read reviews of most restaurants on Open Table before I try them out.
I even use the negative reviews as a tool to address/ call the restaurant to not repeat
The same. My Wife and I enjoyed the attention, the ambiance, and the food. Just like movies reviews,
I learned to be my own judge. In this case, I'm glad I did.
The food and service were tremendous. Our server was very friendly and quite helpful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Great food & great view. A little pricy, but I expect that from a place like this so it's no big deal.
80th floor of the AON tower with a great view of the City. Simple but well prepared and presented food and outstanding wait staff.
Had a great time. Service was excellent.
We will never dine here again; one of the worst dining experiences in a long time. When arriving at the building, you're essentially searched similar to an airport TSA screening, complete with ID presentation and purse search. Upon arrival to the 80th floor, there's no hostess, you have to wander around to find the restuarant. The website says 360 degree views, but only one side of the restaurant has windows. The food was well priced and average, at best. Not worth the hassle of getting in just to feel like you're eating at Friday's.
Decided on a whim to try. Reserved thru open table, the restaurant promptly called back asking which if we wanted the formal dining room or the casual area. I asked for a window view, the representative commented that there are window views in both rooms, so she put is in the casual room. We were not seated by a window, although the place was practically empty, and there was a table by the window available. The menu was lacking selection. The salad was excellent, the other food, steak, lamb chops was just ok. Service was nice, but extremely slow. Took over an hour to receive our main course and 20 minutes to get the check. For nearly $100 per person, you should expect more. Should have went to a great steakhouse. I won't be back.
Great view of the city. Food was not memorable.
The setting is on the 80th floor of the AON building in downtown Chicago. This, naturally, leads to scenic views. Unfortunately, our table was no where near any window so no view. It would have been nice to have been given a choice. The service was on the slow side. The wait staff was pleasant but lacking a bit in professionalism. The food was quite good. It's a shame, however, that the wine list did not live up to the food. The list itself is quite sparse for a restaurant that ascribes to being upper echelon. Even worse, the two bottles I ordered were 3 years off in their vintage compared to what was written on the list.
The place is on the skids. After much talk about a dress code, there were men in blue jeans with shirts out and no tie. The server was very nice. The desert was not edible. It was burned black and was hard as a rock. The server took it away, but what restaurant sends something like this out to customers.I would not go again or recomend it to anyone.
