Rosebud on Rush
Unfortunately, reservation requests for the outdoor patio cannot be taken online.
I asked a couple of Chicago PD’s finest about an old school Italian place for dinner and the suggested Rosebud. I’m glad that I listened to them. The service, food, and atmosphere were all fantastic!
The service was excellent. Everyone who checked on us was friendly and professional but with a sense of humor. My veal Parmesan was tender and flavorful. My wife’s pasta dish was also very good. The sausage in the pasta was some of the best I’ve had. Portions are huge and we both took quite a bit home. The wine list is a good assortment of Italian wines. And what liked was the number of wines available by the glass. It was a fun night.
Seriously amazing Italian food! I ordered the eggplant parmesean which was outstanding with a side of rigatoni alla vodka. I would order the same thing again! Good atmosphere, will absolutely go back next time in Chicago.
We love to visit this place when we come to the city. The service is always great and the food is absolutely wonderful!
Food was excellent, but the place was packed and very noisy. Could not carry on a conversation due to the noisy dining room. Tables are really too close to each other. Would prefer a restaurant atmosphere a little less crowded & noisy for the price you pay for dinner.
Had a great time as always. Francisco was just awesome! We’ll be back.
The food as Rosebud is excellent and the service is wonderful!
Amazing delicious food as always. I highly recommend the Cavatelli!
We arrived early but thanks to our OpenTable reservation we were seated promptly. The pappardelle wasn’t on the menu but our server had it made with vodka sauce. Johnny made sure we were well taken care of. Always looking forward to our next visit!
My husband and I visit Chicago once a year every December. The Rosebud on Rush is always a must for us. This year is was even better than we remembered! The food was exceptional! The service was great. We will go back everytime we are in Chicago.
My daughter and I take an annual shopping trip to Chicago, and this is our favorite spot to have cocktails and relax before dinner. Having to be gluten-free is not a problem here, I love the Chicken Vesuvio, although gluten free pasta is available if you prefer a pasta dish. My daughter's favorite is the Baked Cavatelli, which is always delicious. I only wish we could go there more often.
Food was great. Service was okay!
Rosebud is always my Italian “go to”, I know the meal is going to be excellent and the service level is always very consistent.
We had a wonderful meal. Service was excellent. The only downside was the volume of the music was too loud. So between the music and people it was difficult to hear people at the table.
My table (2 people) in the upper level was cornered in a bad way too close to the table behind me. It feels like it was not suppose to be there.
Our favorite Italian food restaurant in the Windy City
Always amazing !! Service, management and the entire menu is above all others in the market. My main restaurant each trip to Chicago without exception. Thanks so mich!!
nice food, ambience, drinks, service. the place is a bit cramp.
A great evening with wonderful food and truly professional service.
The servicers were very attentive. We were early for our reservation but were taken in right away.
The ceiling was dripping water. They shouldn’t have sat anyone in that section
Great service and delicious food!
We were seated early which was great. We were in town shopping and finished a little early so really ready to sit and have a drink. Our waiter was very accommodating even separating the checks after they had been run together. Food was delicious.
The food was not up to the expectations from the “really good” reviews.
Wonderful Italian cuisine and I especially love their veal dishes.
Enjoyed Italian food there several years ago.
Thanksgiving dinner was very bland. Turkey was good, but dressing and potatoes were mush, but the carrots were so hard could not cut them. And NO pumpkin pie! Pumpkin cheesecake - poor substitute.
Stick with their Italian menu and you will have a great meal.
Coming from CA to have dinner with granddaughter and family, I picked the restaurant. Bad choice on my behalf.
Very nice for Thanksgiving lunch - great food and service.
We had a reservation for dinner and ended up being seated in the outdoor section which we were told was heated in the very cold Chicago weather...however it was absolutely freezing! We couldn’t even enjoy our meal. The service was ok...nothing special but the ambiance was very disappointing. The food itself was average. The ‘brick chicken’ which is their specialty was dry and flavorless. Costco’s rotisserie chicken has more flavor. Won’t be returning! Oh and our chairs were almost broken, wobbly and we felt like they would collapse at any moment.
Great food and service. Enjoy every visit. Great for family and friends!
We keep returning because it is always a great dinner experience. The special ravioli was wonderful - we were filled but no overstuffed! My husband cannot veer from the veal and my brother-in-law loved the sea bass. I've never had a meal here that was less than excellent!
Terrible host and manager. Food was good waiter average however they place too many tables together and people are always running into your chair!
Arrived and was placed in the family section. It was just my wife and I on our anniversary.
Area was very loud and didn’t meet our expectations for a nice anniversary dinner.
Service was good and waiter was very pleasant and attentive.
Another waiter bumped into our table twice which we found a bit odd.
Anyway, left satisfied but have had better experiences.
Service was great! Food was fantastic (as always)
OMG. Perfect!!!! Great food and amazing service to say the very least. We could not have asked for a better lunch. We highly recommend hands down. One of the best places to eat at in Chicago!!!!!!
Perfect place to dine, love it
We can’t wait to go back
I really didn’t know how to start this review. The atmosphere and the service is amazing, however, the food was not that great. The bread is WAY too hard and the salad was okay, but not special. The eggplant parmesan had no eggplant taste and tasted smoked. Actually gave off a sausage flavor. We asked about it and they took it and made another one, new and bigger however it tasted the same. My daughter is a vegetarian and the taste made it taste meaty, so she could not eat it. We were polite and paid for it because the service and waiter was absolutely amazing and attentive. We left it on hotel room however. We won’t be back, it was very expensive and just not good enough to spend the money on that. If you don’t cook much then maybe you would be okay with it? Not sure.
Excellent Italian food! Great experience. Delicious cocktails.
Best Italian food and service in Chicago! Hand down.
