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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Just an outstanding experience from start to finish. This restaurant delivers a high quality dining experience that you would expect for the prices that you pay. What more can you expect? A restaurant that consistently delivers the experience that you are paying for. A can’t miss choice anytime you want fine Italian dining in the Streeterville/ Northside area.

Had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Rosebud on Rush. We ordered the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer and the Sea Bass and Bone-In Ribeye from the specials menu and everything was perfect and delicious. Service was top notch, as you would expect from any Rosebud restaurant. We chose to sit in the enclosed patio area and it was very warm and inviting even at the beginning of November and still had that buzzing street level al fresco feel.
