Was in town by myself for a conference so sat at the bar and had drinks and dinner. The best veal Marsala ever! Enjoyed every minute I was there - tempted to go back every night I’m in town!

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.

Rosebud on Rush is a cute old school Chicago Italian restaurant. Both the ambience and service were on point with a good wine list.

The food was outstanding in terms of taste and portion size. The service was lack luster. Our waiter did not follow up with us to check on the meal, or offer us coffee or dessert. The manager was very attentive and gave us a complimentary dessert and coffee when we shared our minor criticisms. The atmosphere was very nice and we will definitely return due to the quality of the cuisine.

The food was good and there was a nice atmosphere. Our server took a while to greet us but I guess it's to be expected on a Friday night. I specifically told open table that it was our Anniversary and they brought out cannolis with a candle singing Happy Birthday loud as ever. So that sucked.

Fantastic food and service. Both chocolate cakes are a MUST try. Valet parking is also very reasonable compared to public parking, since there is no street parking. But, you pay for all the excellent food and service, very high prices.

We had a speaker blaring really loud over the top of our table. Couldn’t carry a conversation at the table with our party bc Niobe of us could hear each other. Food was good for the most part.

As always incredible personnel service (Happy Anniversary song!) food and drink. Our first choice for fine dining especially when friends are in town!
Window seats, second floor, same table every time - don't even need to request.

Consistently superior in every way. Rosebud on Rush is my favorite of the Rosebud locations. The antipasto is lovely. But what I absolutely love is their Bolognese sauce and on the perfectly prepared folded ribbons of pappardelle. You just can’t go wrong with anything at Rosebud on Rush! The service, the food, the cocktails. Thank you!

We really like Rosebud on Rush. Everyone is eager to please. The food is Superb and John the GM seems to be everywhere at once making sure everyone is enjoying themselves and that everything is as it should be. And it always is! The Caesar salad is excellent, and their chopped salad is just as good. I like chicken marsala and their vegetable plate is enormous. I think it’s the best Italian restaurant in Chicago.

We visited Rosebud on Rush a couple of nights ago. My son took a bite of a sesame seed breadstick and immediately started having an allergic reaction. We were unaware of this allergy prior to that night. The staff was excellent, bringing him a glass of milk, frequently checking in on us and even sending someone to the drug store for Benedryl on our behalf, which brought quick relief for my son. It wasn’t exactly the night at Rosebud’s that we’d been looking forward to but the manager and staff did everything in their power to help our family make the best of an inopportune evening.

This is a bustling Italian restaurant with a very nice ambiance. The food is absolutely great and the lasagne to die for. Service is quick and the waiting staff are very efficient and helpful. The prices are on the higher side but the size of the dishes make it good value for money. I would definitely go back.

It was the night before the Chicago Marathon and the place was packed. It still did not disappoint. Wonderful service, so much food, very friendly and helpful staff. We had a great pre race dinner!
