We were a large family group including teen-agers. The menu had options to suit everyone
and the stuffed mushrooms were awesome! it was a busy night so it was quite noisy but we had
a table out of the way and tho it was a little cramped, we were able to talk without shouting. A good place for a celebration.

We went to Rosebud for an impromptu brunch on a rainy Sunday morning. We had a stroller with a sleeping child and they accommodated us accordingly. The main dining room was down a short set of stairs with no available elevator, but the host helped me carry the stroller down them. The main dining room had a cellar-type of feel to it (in a cozy, good way), as it was down some stairs with windows out to the ground level near the top of the walls. There was a good-sized main bar area with 2 tv (on with no volume). The service was both timely and pleasant. We ordered a traditional eggs Benedict and a Greek omelette. There were 2 pieces of pound cake placed on the table after we were seated. The portion sizes were on the larger size, as my wife and I both took some leftovers home. As a side not, my wife has a gluten allergy and they were able to make most things gluten-free. They even offer a gluten-free pasta. The server was knowledgeable & aware, as well. Overall, we would recommend Rosebud and enjoyed our time there. Thanks!

We had a party of 6 and 3 of the people were running late so we let the host know that we wanted to be seated and we didn't want to wait for them. 45 minutes later we had not been seated and had to go inform the host again that we wouldn't be waiting for the other party and to please seat us, we were eventually seated almost an hour after arrival. After ordering our food was ordered the rest of our party showed up and the restaurant kindly moved us to a bigger table. The waitress finally came back and took the extra orders, unfortunately they decided to bring our order out altogether instead of bringing out the food we had ordered first and we ended up eating around 945 with an 8pm reservation. One of the girls in our party did not like her food and barely ate, she did inform our waitress that she was unhappy with the food and instead of trying to rectify it they still ended up charging us for it. All in all I was very disappointed and it left all of us with a sour taste in our mouth for this birthday dinner.

I look forward to trying this place again. My food was great, but our service was terrible. We went for breakfast on a Sunday. We chose to sit inside and we were the only party in our dining area, yet our server forgot to bring our food. I had the smoked salmon platter, & by the time I got my food, my toasted bagel was completely cold. I'd go back, the place was fun and the food was good.
Just crossing my fingers for better service next time.

Noisy, sat us under the speaker for the music. Asked to have it turned down so we could talk. They kept turning it back up. Too hot and stuffy in the basement, the shrimp were too well done and the eggplant was not breaded and fried but a gelatinous mass on my plate. Rude front desk staff and did not hold our reservation.

 (Chicago)·Dined on November 4, 2017

I have been eating here for twenty years since I first took a job in Chicago and worked around the corner on Michigan Avenue. Now I am in the loop and instead of regular lunches I save it for downtoen occasions with the family. It's a great mix of ambience, with just the right blend of cozy neighborhood Italian mixed with the rush street hot spot scene. Great classic Italian food straight from little Italy. Come for lunch or a great dinner and have a glass of Brunello.

Always good and reliable. Only one critique, food portions too large in this day and age. My husband and I each split a salad and veal entree, and with half portions more than adequate. Perhaps they should consider small plates.

I was disappointed in our entree. The sauce tasted like Chef Boyardee. It was way sweet for a red sauce. the Gnocchi was gummy and not good. For the money I spent I was disappointed in the food. Now the service was fine.

Really good restaurant. Outstanding food. Got seafood fra diablo. Not too spicy. Even surprised me with a half of lobster tail. BONUS. Only complaints were from a few that had Sangria that wasn’t that tasty. Thought wine list needed a few more selections of mid priced wines. Not a big Italian wine fan and the reds from the US were very pricy. I should have thought to look into bringing my own bottle.

Ate inside upstairs, loud, very cold, very dark (could not read the menu without the light from our phones), very rushed, had to ask over & over for more bread (not a good server), not helpful with the menu, nothing was done for the birthday we were celebrating, we went elsewhere for desert, food was good but pricey - not going back.
