Food was excellent. The meat sauce was unbelievable. Great selection of wine. If you are looking for a quiet place this is not it. Lots of people and the noise level is high but fun.
Pricey but in line for the quality of food and the wine. Overall experience excellent. When in Chicago I will definitely come back. Downstairs bartender gave us some great tips on the menu.

We loved it! The food was superb and the service outstanding. We don’t get to Chicago often, but when we do, Rosebud on Rush will be on our must do list.

Rosebud on Rush, like the other Rosebud locations, is a true Chicago treasure. The food is always plentiful and top-notch. The service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Management at the restaurant is present and observant. I always feel like I am having dinner at a friend's house when I eat there -- but I don't have any friends that cook that well. Truly the best Italian food in Chicago.

The food was too salty for our family, especially the onion soup. The steak was great. Service was great too. The restaurant is too loud.

We were in Chicago just for the night. We make short overnight trips by train from Milwaukee a few times a year to get away. Rosebud on Rush was recommended to us by a friend. Everything about it was excellent and a fun experience. The entire waitstaff was friendly and attentive without hovering too much and the food was amazing. Only downside was that we couldn’t finish it and couldn’t enjoy the leftovers since we left the next morning. We would definitely come back!

It was fine but not great. The food was heavy but that could have been the way we ordered. For Italian one can do better for less money.

We had an 8:00 reservation, along with a handful of other people. Everyone else was sat ahead of us and when we were sat the manager sat us without menus. We went about 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged us at all. Our server was very apologetic and tried to make up for it where she could. We were very excited for the food but it was extremely salty. Overall it was very disappointing. We were only in Chicago for one night and we choose Rosebud and it was a major let down. Next time we will stick with a steakhouse.

The special my boyfriend had was lobster ravioli which tasted fishy and he got sick later. The veal parm was good but a ridiculous portion it was so huge. The side of pasta was mushy but the Alfredo we ordered was well done but needed salt.

Went for a date night... was seated inbetween multiple families with small children...we love kids, have three ourselves but hello hostess... date night with a reservation for TWO!! Also no ambiance at all in the upstairs seating for a date night, seating was almost on top of each other.

Ordered the special lobster ravioli... it was extremely fishy, more like a crab meat or lobster claw shred, very disappointed. Extremely Over priced for quality of food we had.

Best part of this place was the wait staff, they were all wonderful. Great service but sub par food.

Rosebud on Rush never disappoints! We had the Pork Rabien special this time and it was fabulous. The ambiance and service are great as well. We visit Chicago a couple of times a year and this is one place that we always visit when we are in town.

Had a business dinner here and appreciated the excellent service. They were closing the upstairs and let us continue our discussions. The food was outstanding. Highly recommend the pounded veal chop parmigiana. Rigatoni alla Vodka was perfect.
