We really enjoyed the experience here as it was right next to the ice skating rink. There was a bit of a misstep with seating and our reservation but once that was sorted out, things went smoothly. The service was good but a little slow at times. It is very busy during the holiday season so we were understanding.

Our waitress was slow to bring our drinks and very fast to bring our dinners. I had asked for a quiet table (one of the group is hard of hearing.) They seated us right by the bar which was very noisy.

Sadly, our dining experience wasn't great... They forgot one of the three pretzels we ordered. They forgot to get my wife a refill on her Pepsi. And they left full uncracked peppercorns on our steaks, which tasted like they had been bathed in salt... Needless to say, this restaurant's great atmosphere is wasted.

My first but not last time dining at the Park Grill! Food was so good, fresh and delicious. The hostess was great answering all my questions, very professional. I met friends and we had a lot of catching up, we lingered at our table and we‘re not rushed to leave at all. Elevator takes you right down to grant park garage. I’ll be back:) !!!

Was really looking forward to our evening at Park Grill and came away less than impressed. Service was far from great. Restaurant seems to be more about the location than food or service.

Right in the heart of Millennium Park - great place to enjoy a good meal while watching the fun outside, especially when the skating rink is open. Nice mix of entrees, sandwiches, and burgers, and a comprehensive wine list. Portions are generous. Highly recommend the pretzel appetizer! Service on a Saturday night was quick enough to get you to the theater.

We stopped in for mid-afternoon snacks and wine, as a break between shopping and looking at Macy’s holiday windows. The staff was very friendly, and all went out of their way to be helpful. The wine list was robust, and there was a good selection of starters/salads. We had four starters - one with hummus/seasoned sauteed vegetables, one with guacamole/specially seasoned large crisps, one with hot pretzels/two dips, and a unique “chopped salad” (we added chicken). My descriptions don’t do justice to the food, so I recommend checking out the menu. Nothing was “ordinary” - each dish was unique, nicely seasoned, and beutifully plated. Each had a modest amount of food (think tappas), so the four starters together were the right amount of food for a light afternoon snack for three. The venue is festive year-round, but especially charming during the winter months when you can see the ice rink/skaters right outside the front windows of the restaurant.

Great meeting point to bring out of town guests - watch the skaters as you dine and then see the Millenium Park Christmas tree. Don't forget your skates : one rink and a skating ribbon to enjoy.

Also no problem sitting a large party. Loved the cozy fireplace.

We had 7:30 tickets at the Auditorium Theater and we should have told our server that we had a time line, but also servers should be aware that the Auditorium isn’t far away and, maybe, could ask if that’s a consideration.

The bartender didn't know how to make a French martini, it was terrible. Last time we were there, they were good. I wish we were told he didn't have ingredients or didn't know how to make one-Google, anyone??- and I could have switched to something else. Anyway, my crab cake was lukewarm, the side salad was, meh. It was close to work, and was not busy. There was a small group of people at the bar watching the Bears game. One woman kept screaming and yelling. Other than that, it was quiet.

Food was pretty good, but the service could have been better. For reasons unknown, it took a long time to get sweetener for my iced tea. I was looking at a dish full of it on a neighboring table, and I should have just gotten up and asked the party there if they could spare a few yellow envelopes..... for that is what the waiter did after I asked a few times for it. The overhead heater was going. Took a bit for someone to figure out how to turn it off. But the food was pretty good.

Got there 530p and no problem getting outdoor seating, was a beautiful day. We had our adult kids and 2 year old grandson with us, outdoor seating was perfect for both the weather and a small child, would not recommend the quiet indoor seating if you have kids with you. Our waiter was great, made recommendations with his personal experience of having a toddler, much appreciated! Food was good, though Ahi Tuna rub was too salt/spicy, burger was great, roasted cauliflower was excellent. Met our needs perfectly for outdoor dining after day at the Shedd!

IT WAS A LADY'S DAY IN CHICAGO AND WE HAD AN EXCEPTIONAL WAITRESS, VERY FRIENDLY, HELPFUL AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, VERY EFFICIENT. THE FOOD SELECTIONS WERE GREAT FOR LUNCH, HOWEVER, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE BASIC SANDWICH SUCH AS TURKEY. TOO DIFFICULT TO EAT COMFORTABLY AND TOO OVER POWERING FOR A SANDWICH. SOMETIMES, LESS IS MORE. ONE OF THE PARTY HAD THE CRAB CAKE AND ABSOLUTELY RAVED ABOUT IT, ANOTHER THE WHITE FISH (HOWEVER COMMENTED TOO MUCH TO EAT FOR LUNCH) AND WAS TAKEN WITH THE PREPARATION AND FLAVOR. SALAD WAS EXCEPTIONALLY WELL DONE, CHOPPING THE LETTUCE IN A MANAGEABLE SIZE MADE IT PLEASURABLE TO EAT AND VERY TASTY. WITHOUT QUESTION ANOTHER FUTURE VISIT IS VIABLE.

We often come here after events at Millennium. Given how crowded it can get, it is amazing how available they are. The outside is much more crowded but given that this was a hot summer day, inside was fine with us. The food is very good and not overly priced. Given the location, this is our go-to place for a drink or dinner.

Live less than 5 minutes away and have eaten here numerous times. VERY disappointed this last visit with server. When an item for which a condiment may typically be desired, server should ask patron and then assure condiment is on table prior to or with food served. On this instance server rushed off before I could ask for mustard to accompany hamburger (not an unusual request), hardly visited table, had food delivered by another employee who also rushed off, and then patron had to ask 3 times before mustard was provided. When server rather ceremoniously finally appeared with the mustard, I was half way through eating the burger. When I commented, served chastised me, saying I should have told her. Better trained servers know to ask, know to check up at table served, and know not to try to place blame on patron for their error. Though a neighbor, and previously quite pleased, Park Grill will be off our list for now.
