I do not recommend for a busy time - for example, I made a reservation at 9:30 for new year's eve and it was not what I had in mind. I had family visiting from out of the country and we were not seated until 10:00. We were told we could hang out at the bar while we waited so we did. We were eager to order a drink, and the bar tender told us it would be best to wait until we sat down. So we sat there without being able to order beverages for the half hour. Once we sat down the food was very delicious and the waiter was very helpful and spoke many languages.

A super fun time for New Year's for the whole family - very good food, huge portions and a great atmosphere. Go there hungry and share the eggplant. The lasagna was outstanding!

Celebrated NYE here. The service was incredible. We arrived half an hour early to our reservation and instead of getting a “here’s your wait time” they instead offered us a seat at the bar and then proceeded to exceed our expectations when they carried our drinks for us from the bar to our table where they grabbed our coats and seats for us. Followed by an incredible food experience. And the end of the evening allowing me to put my girls coat on for her and then the manager assisting me to put mine on. Absolutely classy move and servie. We will be going back a million times.

Rose bud changed their menu and prices. The quality of food does not pair with the pricing. Over priced for the quality. Food came undercooked had to sent back the steak. Side dishes were undercooked. The only thing good about this restaurant is the location.

We’ve been to Rosebud on Rush before and have always been happy, but unfortunately this wasn’t the best experience. Our waiter was not good at all, we waited at least 10-15mins before being greeted, then it too and hour to get our appetizers.....we had to ask where they were, and when the appetizers came to our table, they were not hot....I think he forgot about them and they sat in the kitchen. He was not very attentive and we were disappointed with the service. Food is always good. We will probably go back, but not if he is our waiter again.

Great food, but ambience definitely lacking. Sat on a rickety table that kept rocking and the food/drinks kept getting sloshed as if on a ship or boat.

Horrible!
We dined at your establishment for Christmas dinner. My husband & I have severe allergies the server became frustrated told us she is a patient person but we are asking too many questions, she has other tables, it’s Christmas and she’s really busy so we need to order!
We asked for the manager, instead she brought another server. The manager did come over and we did order but our experience had already been ruined by the other server.
To make matters worse she went to the next table said she has patience but we just asked too many questions and the remainder of the evening she joked with the other table about us.

Went for a Christmas Day dinner. Was very disappointed. The waiting staff were very attentive. Wasn’t impressed with my choice of food. The restaurant was so busy and there was a feeling of rushing to get food in and out. We hadn’t finished our starter and our main was on the table. Wasn’t impressed with the value for money. Had other meals in Chicago which were much better value. Sorry! There was a lot of food though and we took The left overs hone

Feels very crowded as tables are very close together. Street level seating was better than the very cramped lower level.
