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.

I had the baramudi special which was delicious along with the brussel sprouts special an dh had the tacos. They don't include bread with the meal which is good for me but I was so tempted when I saw the Bavarian pretzels go by. The waitress was very pleasant and really seemed to enjoy her job. For a downtown restaurant, the prices were really reasonable.

Food and service are decent enough though nothing to brag about. I was disappointed in the ambiance: Advertised as "casual elegant." it is strictly casual; some like that, I do not.

Our food was fine, but the service was terrible. One person in our party asked 3 times for a glass for her beer before receiving it, we had to ask for appetizer plates and empty serving plates to be removed because once our entrees arrived the table was overflowing with dishes, the server could not answer basic questions about menu items. We went to Park Grill for our team holiday celebration and it was unfortunately very disappointing.

"Tried and True" describes this restaurant perfectly. The service is outstanding. The menu provides many options. Somehow the ambiance is both cozy and vibrant. With a fireplace and a seasonal gingerbread house, it was a perfect place to catch up with a friend over lunch and a glass of wine. We could even watch skaters as we dined.

The Park Grill didn’t disappoint. My husband and I were here 8 years ago and we had a great time. We’ve recently moved back to Chicago and decided to go to dinner back here again. It was as good as I remembered. Bill was our waiter and he was attentive without overcrowding us. My husband had beer and I had the poinsettia punch for drinks. We ordered the calamari and the queso with the guacamole and chips. Then for our entree we ordered the fish and chips and the New York strip. The food was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices have stayed. After dinner we enjoyed watching the skaters outside and walking around Millennium Park.

Food, Ambiance, and Service was great. Only complaint was that there are only two bathrooms and there was constantly a wait. Neither of them were very clean either with toilet paper all over the floor, garbage cans that are broken and sink counters with water all over them. Was hard with my little one.

The bathrooms are the only thing I was disappointed in, so the restaurant itself is great! I;m sure we will go again.

In town to see Hamilton. Thought this would be a nice location to take in some iconic attractions. The dinner just kind of fell flat starting with the service which was underwhelming bordering on rude. We felt like a bit of an inconvenience. Food was ok but nothing to get excited about. My daughter liked the fries and thought the turkey sandwich was flavorful despite the tomatoes she requested to be removed from the order. Great location with some views of the ice rink from our table.

Celebrating a friend's birthday brought a lovely surprise: a huge slice of a four layer chocolate cake! Shared by 6! Lunch during ice skating season was fun! Everyone joined oysters, soups, and special salads. Service was attentive.

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.

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.
