Good before theater spot for early dinner
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Petterino’s! Our sever, Sharon, was friendly and energetic. The Milanese risotto was fabulous! The only glitch was that my wife’s Manhattan came out on the rocks rather than up as ordered, although we elected to not send it back in the interest of time. Great place to go before or after Goodman, which I’d always after for us so we can better enjoy our dining experiences.
Great service and atmosphere. Loved all the sketches on the wall and the valet parking.
Food was uneven. Terribly loud. Conversation was very difficult.
A great place for a pre-show dinner with a very attentive staff. The space is challenging to navigate and the food is average.
Not a Lettuce Entertain You anymore and you can tell. None of the fabulous food was there to make me need to go back. They even attempted to change the restroom. That just topped off my decision to back. The LYE Petterinos was one of a kind, this is just ordinary.
Heidi great server
On Bruschetta pls serve w 4 not one crostini
Otherwise fabulous evening!!
Great new menu . Manager was a real professional
Petterino’s was excellent. We had dinner before the Tedeschi Trucks Band at the Chicago Theater and enjoyed the experience. Definitely recommend for those downtown for a show.
We chose Petterino’s because the convenient location to the theater district. It did not disappoint. The gnocchi was absolutely fabulous! We will definitely be back.
I had the best steak I have ever had. The 30 day set aged strip is a must!
it was the perfect spot for dinner before a show at the chicago theatre! the food was delicious! they treated us so well and were so welcoming and always making sure we were doing well. the concierge was so so nice!
Food was lukewarm, meatballs tasted like processed frozen and reheated, I could get better pasta sauce from a jar, prices were crazy for what we received
We had a great experience from start to finish. Everyone was very welcoming, food and service were amazing! We’ll be back soon.
Good quality of food and the service was fine. Only issue was they were out of chicken picata. Since that's my wife's favorite Italian dish and she'd been looking forward to it, the dinner was a bit of a disappointment.
Food was great. We had 4 kids with us, and the restaurant was kid friendly. Excellent service!
We were looking for a place to eat dinner before the FROZEN show and Petterino's was suggested. It was my daughter's 16th birthday and the show was her present and it was mentioned in the reservation. Decor was fun and very pretty. Server was very very good! Meals and drinks were a bit overpriced, but that is to be expected downtown. 2 "issues" really irked me though. There was no recognition for my daughter's birthday. No Happy Birthday, no candle, no nothing. All that was done was that her dessert was taken off the bill. I just think for the amount of money for a plate, a simple candle would have been nice, to celebrate a special milestone. Anything. Secondly, charging $28 for the scallop special is outrageous. There are NO sides that come with it at all. They weren't even jumbo scallops. I've purchased bigger scallops at Aldi. Each of the 3 were the size of a teaspoon, and was $28. That was frustrating!
Nice family date place before Frozen on Broadway.
Always a great spot whenever we are in Chicago!! We will keep coming back
The food was delicious and the service was fantastic too. Our waiter was great and we had a great time.
Food and service was excellent
Love Petterino's! Great service and amazing food, can't wait to go back!
Happy to still see a lot of favorite dishes being served.
Perfect evening of wine,dine and show with friends began with Petterino’s
The food was great, I love the decor, and staff was friendly. We had some trouble finding someone to ask them to refill our water glasses (they were empty for a while), but they were getting really busy & I know everyone is short-staffed these days. I loved the pianist/singer! The lobster & shrimp salad was delicious.
This Restaurant is a MUST. New Restaurant Management Company. Fantastic!! Service is outstanding; front desk (check in), Bar, Bus Staff and Server along with the Manager. Highly recommend. The menu is great. We had the Gnocchi, hands down some of the BEST ever. Very tasty, sauce is delicious and the texture is unique VERY YUMMY. The vegetables were fresh, perfectly seasoned. We both had white fish which was extraordinary. Please go try Petterino's. We've been long time customers. We always will be.
Welcoming, great service and good menu and choices
Mark, the manager, was excellent. He came to our table with 2 glasses of champagne to toast my friend’s retirement and returned later to make sure we were having an enjoyable evening!
Our waitress never checked on us and we had to flag her down for a dessert menu. Then she never came back so we didn’t order dessert and had to flag her down again for the check. Ruined our time out.
Loved the ambiance and wanted to love everything else equally as much. But, the service was less than stellar. We sat for at least 15 minutes before a waiter came and that was only because we had to ask a manager for one. They never brought the salads we ordered either. Just not good service for the type of restaurant it is.
Dinner here was amazing! We made reservations ahead of time which went smoothly. The food and drinks were great. Service was the best part. Our waiter, an older gentlemen, was so friendly and gave my partner and I wonderful recommendations. We would 100% return
Had a very nice dinner here. Food was good and had great service. Really good value and had a nice dinner here.
Would recommend and I would go back again
I miss some of the classics like the Fritzel salad and peppermint ice cream. The cocktail was delicious but would prefer the pour from a shaker at the table to have the full pour, a $16 martini filled well below the top so it doesn’t spill while delivering to the table is a bit annoying. Service is really quick and food was tasty so still a great place for pre show dining. Live piano music was great!
Pre-theater dinner. Food was delicious, especially dessert. Service was incredible. Noise level was high, but overall ambience was enjoyable. I really enjoyed the live pianist. Will definitely be going back.
Great pre-theatre meal. Service was attentive and personable. Food was excellent. We were tight on time and everything arrived quickly. We even had time for dessert.
My daughter and I had dinner here before going to see Frozen, the musical at the Cadillac Palace. Very nice space, the food was good and the service was really great. We would definitely return!!
Perfect location before a show. Staff is very friendly and service was great. Smaller menu than it used to be and we had to ask for bread. The Risotto was served inside a large bone. Not very appetizing. But the other entrees were great as were the drinks.
Great dinner before a show! Nice options for all.
I've been going to Petterino's for years. The service is always exemplary. I brought my father and my niece as we were all seeing Frozen that evening. The noise level was a bit too high as my father is hard of hearing. The food was excellent. Please bring back the Blueberry Lemontini! And the Homer's ice cream.
The food and service were excellent. It got a. It noisy as the restaurant filled up but we would return there whenever we go down for the theater.
