I make a point to go to Rosebud on Rush every time I am in Chicago. It is a gem. And it doesn't hurt to get special attention from Frank, the manager. He knows how to make you feel welcome and right at home. Food is amazing.

I was visiting Chicago for a weekend of fun and baseball with friends. I was craving Italian food and Rosebud on Rush came recommended by a friend. As soon as I walked in I knew this restaurant was an authentic Italian restaurant. I'm Italian and from NJ so to see the manager walk around the restaurant asking each table how their meal was brought back to my childhood.

We ordered a bottle of Rosebud Rose. The wine was amazing. We each had something different and shared with the table. The food was awesome. We split a piece of their chocolate cake. It was light fluffy and so good. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Chicago and want italian food.

Reservation made on open table and ready when we got there. Waiter was attentive in beginning of visit, but went downhill after apps received. Calamari was very good. Bread was empty quite often and it took 5 requests for butter to finally be delivered. Main course fair. Very bland tomato pasty sauce. Reservation was made for a birthday celebration and had to remind waiter that he was to deliver bday dessert. On the good side, the waiters assistant was meticulous about clearing dirty dishes and water glasses full. Asst staff far superior to head captain. Noise level was extremely loud. Will not return next time to Chicago.

a bit disappointed with the freshly made pasta - maybe it was sitting in the kitchen too long before bringing out - it was not al dente anymore (it was overcooked)

It was our 30th wedding anniversary and my husband was wheelchair-bound, two things the restaurant was told WELL in advance. They never bothered to tell us there was no elevator to the more elegant basement seating until we arrived for our dinner (tho I provided an email address for just that purpose). Patio seating was all that was available, and tho at least five (I got up and counted them) other tables were available where a wheelchair would not block the very narrow space between tables, we were seated right in front of the entrance beside a bus table. The maitre de insisted, lying to our faces, that this was all they could do, as we watched others being ushered to the tables we could easily have taken. Our server was delightful, the meal was delicious, and we made the most of a thoroughly demeaning, outrageous situation caused entirely by the maitre de. I frequent Rosebud restaurants almost weekly, but NEVER NEVER NEVER will we return to this horribly managed location.

A classic old favorite - generous, tasty portions with quick, efficient service in a packed, noisy space. Always good but will plan my next trip when (hopefully) it will be a little less noisy to make conversation easier.

This was our second time to Rosebud. The breakfast quesadilla is our favorite for breakfast/brunch. Our kids had the cinnamon french toast which was amazing! Tasted like a churro! I would suggest you split an order for two younger kids. I had the Greek Omelet. It was huge and I could only eat half of it but it was great! Mimosas are the perfect addition! Cozy place!

We had a reservation for 8, but only 7 attended. We received 6 waters and had to ask for the 7th. We asked for bread plates and only received 5. One of our orders was incorrect and while we ended up making it work by splitting another meal, we were still charged for the wrong order. Service was slow. Noise level was high. Love the food but hesitant to return.

We’ve always loved this restaurant but this time we were blown away. My mom is in a wheelchair so we were nervous, but the manager and another man swept in, carried her down the stairs, and made light of it. That was amazing and so helpful in taking the stress out of the situation. We love Rosebud and will continue to eat there, as well as recommend it!
