It’s a nice option when you are visiting Millennium Park. With that said, the food was average but the service was terrible. I think that they only had 2 waitstaff and 2 bussers for the entire restaurant during Saturday lunch. The waitress we ended up with was the slowest of the two, very inattentive and very unfriendly. We will never return.

Food has improved since my last visit a couple of years ago. Waitress was very acommodating, as my guests were arriving late due to a traffic accident, and we had a concert to attend at 7:30pm. They arrived at 6:30 and waitress was very attentive and assured us we had time. Food did come out quickly and was very tasty. And we made the concert in time!

Server told us her name and then did not return for 20 minutes. (Note has abundance of servers in restaurant just seemed to be quality of server with little supervision). Menu was limited and was focused more on sandwiches versus entrees. Was Friday in lent and offerings of fish/vegan was extremely limited. Had to ask server questions (about specials, various wine sizes, type of soup, etc. ) which we knew that they had from previous times we were at Park Grill.
The food was served by delivers but server only came late in our meal (we had almost finished) to see if we needed anything. Service and menu options has severely been reduced since prior times we have. One to Park Grill. Given restaurant options in area makes a return trip unlikely.

Restrooms were clean, but the overall restaurant was dirty. Windows dingy, furniture worn...just dated. We hosted folks from Ireland here for the weekend and wanted them to have a grand experience in the Park. It was ho-hum at best. Food was fair to average at best. Wait staff were good and friendly. One step above a TGI Fridays. At least, a good deep cleaning is in order. At best, a complete remodel.

I eat once a year at the Park Grill, with my students, during our time in Chicago for the ACHE Congress on Healthcare Leadership. The atmosphere is friendly and attractive, the service is excellent and the food is superb, with choices for every appetite. I look forward to returning again next March.

Great location. We are from out of town and was touring the city, visited the Bean, and had dinner at this restaurant. Great view of the city and skating rink. Impossible burger was good. Pasta with shrimp was delicious. Server Anna was friendly, personable and attentive to our needs. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

My primary complaint is that in our group of 5 people 2 were vegan and one was vegetarian and it was a struggle to find something other than the usual black bean burger that would be of culinary interest. The menu was just overwhelmingly meaty in the standard American diet sense and needs an upgrade to a more varied and wide-ranging and interesting level.

We decided on Park Grill because of it’s closeness to the Chicago Symphony. They brought our drinks and meals very quickly as they knew we were going to the symphony. My boyfriend and I both had the rigatoni with shrimp and the sauce was delicious. Our friends had salads and they said they enjoyed them. The place is a great spot for having a meal after a skate, or sitting on the patio in the summer. Ambience is a little lacking, not the most romantic if that’s what you’re looking for and more on the casual side.

Though we had enjoyed the food in the past at the Park Grill, this time when we brought our children, no one's food was up to par, from the brown lettuce in the salads to the flavorless sandwiches, none of it to very good

I am once again amazed at the quality of the food.
Excellent appetizers, salads, and pub burgers. Even the French fries are excellent.
A great place to meet for business lunches and certainly family friendly at lunch and dinner.

Overlooking the Millennium Park ice rink Park Grill has delicious food and excellent service. The diverse and accessible menu is more casual then formal, but it always feels special when you dine there.

So much better than expected for a touristy place by the ice rink. The food was legitimately good (and we are food snobs), and the service was great with a nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend. Lots of food options for kids. Mac n cheese was one of the better that we’ve tried as well.

I’ve been to the Park Grill for New Years Eve before but things have changed. The restaurant was empty except for a few scattered families. The service kept looking at their watches and clearly did not want to be there. We were left without drinks and with menus for a long time and then told the kitchen would close in 15 minutes. We had the feeling immediately that we were not really wanted (at 9p on NYE!) so we ordered a drink each and an appetizer and made other plans while paying the bill. We were happy to leave the negative energy of the place and would not recommend to anyone.

We hadn't been there in years, but remembered white table cloths, good food and views of the ice rink. However, the table cloths were gone, it seemed much more crowded and casual than remembered. And most disappointing-the views were obstructed by plastic outdoor igloos. Ambiance was totally different than remembered. We won't be going back.

Server was just OK. She certainly had customers willing to order adult beverages but couldn’t speak to any offering on the menu. Fries were like salt sticks and cold. We’re local and will be back but this wasn’t our best experience.

I've been to this venue several times. In the winter, it is directly off the Millenium Park Ice Rink, which makes a nice view. The food was good, better than I expected, however skimpy on vegetables. Price was reasonable, service has something to be desired. Excellent presymphony/concert dinner venue. Menu not too fancy not too plain, with choice of fancy or not fancy. Convenient parking in loop garages.
