We went during restaurant week. We were told that they were not doing the $24 lunch on the weekend. That issue was never pointed out when we made the online reservation. Very disappointing. They should not even try to do it next year

Another great meal at Rosebud. If outstanding food and solid service were routine, this restaurant would still be near the top of the class.

A wide and diverse menu means there is something for everyone. The alternate preparation methods of veal and chicken covers everything could every want.

Recommend highly the spicy calamari as an appetizer, the veal Milanese as your entree and tiramisu to round off your meal.

Everything and everyone was wonderful. Always made sure we were doing fine. From the busboy to the manager. Took good care of my family and I. Thank you.

The service was absolutely incredible. Typically, when a young couple comes into a fancy restaurant, the servers will automatically disregard us and not treat us like older customers. The server was MORE THAN amazing and completely exceeded my expectations! I look forward to coming here for further date nights!! :) PS. The food was also outstanding! They were not skimpy with any ingredients!

Excellent as always. We came in late, around 11 pm and there we were the only ones in there. They were happy to serve us after Coco Pazzo cancelled our reservation because they were not going to keep employees around for one table. Thank you once again Rosebud in Rush!

Had a wonderful table in a very crowded restaurant. Waitress of course had her recommendations of the most highly priced steaks. Our party had 6 oz. filets and a couple sides. Steak was mediocre at best and portions were very small. Very overpriced for the product. We left hungry.

My husband chose Rosebud on Rush for his 40th birthday dinner because he loves it there and it was delicious, as usual!! He got the steak Italiano style because it’s his favorite and I got the lasagna for the first time and it was amazing! Since Open Table asks if it’s an occasion when you book, I selected that it was a birthday. At the end of our meal, they brought us 2 mini cannoli with a candle and they were great as well and a very nice surprise. We highly recommend it for the great food and very nice and attentive service!

Food was great, service was lacking a bit, we would have liked a second glass of wine but no one came by the table. It was New Year’s Eve so I understood.

Wonderful experience! We went for a NYE dinner and were so impressed by everything from the food to service to the atmosphere. Our waitress was phenomenal. The food was amazing and the prices were reasonable. Not sure what we did to be so special but we were also treated to two complimentary glasses of champagne and a delicious tiramisu type dessert on the house!

Booked this place at the last minute and so glad I did. The food was fantastic. My wife had the meatballs which were some of the best I have tasted. I had the chicken Italiano and it’s the best meal I have had on this trip to Chicago. Highly recommend eating here and it will definitely be added to my go to restaurants the next time I am in Chicago.

While we enjoyed some of our food, the caprese salad was tasteless. The service was inattentive; we were seated for about 10 minutes with no server and I had to stop someone to ask for one. After that the service was spotty. We usually have better service so I’d consider dining here again but with all the other options, I probably won’t.

Our 23 year anniversary n a row dining at Rosebuds during Christmas. This was the first time I thought the service suffered. It was as if the waiter tried to be insulting to myself , my wife and girls as to how we ordered.

My daughters 20th birthday! They made her feel special and our dinners were wonderful . 2 were ordered off menu, my sea bass was the chef’s special. All were amazing!!! Third time this year we have eaten here and I live 250 miles away. It’s worth it!
