We like this place a lot. Unfortunately sometimes when the restaurant is full there are LOUD talkers like the one next to us. Oh My was she loud! And the people at the bar were talking on speaker on their cell phones. FOod very good and consistent. Not cheap but good food.
My date and I couldn’t have been happier with our Rosebud experience. The ambience was great, the service was impeccable and overall we can’t wait to return.
Great food. Got my wife and I an outside table. A really nice evening.
The Bruschetta was the best I've ever had! And the chocolate cake was amazing!
Beautiful Experience. Delicious Food. Great Atmosphere sitting outside. We felt Really Safe with Conscientious Staff offering Safe Excellent Service. We'll be Back.
Love this place! Thanks, Marco!
Outside street side is nice. Good breeze off the lake. Food is always good. Large portions. Great service!
During the Covid pandemic this was a great option for us as we had the option for outdoor seating. Staff was great, and food was amazing! Great ambience and table were far apart from each other . Staff was compliant with masks etc.
Service was great. Food was fresh. We dined outside on the patio which was nice. Can’t wait for the full menu to return. Overall we had a wonderful time.
Fun date night
We went for my sisters birthday and ate outside. We spent about $350 on dinner for all of us and the least they could’ve done was have better service!! They ran out of almost everything, iced tea, vegetables: green beans, asparagus, entree dish-I mean really?!! Needed silverware many times & food sat getting cold:( I had asked for water numerous times & never got it or lemons:( Still never got it after over 45 min waiting!! Did ask numerous times. Also they could’ve comped her dessert after we spent so much! We ordered 4/5 desserts and they seem very cheap for supposedly such a nice place! Bad experience!! :(
Not what I thought of Rosebud!!
I had a great time at Rosebud with my family. The portions are big and you get a lot for your money. We really enjoyed the baked cavatelli and the teramisu is phenomenal. Service is also wonderful and the manager was very personable and kind. We will be back!
John and his staff are the best!
The food was great and the staff was amazing.
great food and service! wonderful evening despite our constraints
As always delicious food, fabulous martinis and excellent service.
never disappoints , stuffed mushrooms and calamari to start to huge portion (easily can share) of chicken parm it was all great.
Service was impeccable.
It was our 26th wedding anniversary. We got down around 2 and were starving so we ate a quick lunch. We met our son who lives downtown and hung out with him and asked if he wanted to stay for dinner w us at rosebud at 5. When we arrived we were early 445 or so. There was not one other person in the restaurant but us and staff. When we got there we told the waiter we weren’t hungry yet but we would have a drink and then order in a little while. He was fine w that. After sitting for about 15 mins drinking waters because it was very hot and we were sitting outside we decided it was time to order drinks. We didn’t see the waiter and we waived over to the Mait’r’d and asked if he could get the waiter. He said you know you have to be out of here within 2 hours. And he said it rudely. Now- I’m 100 percent Italian and I know good Italian food and we have been eating at rosebud for over 30 years. I have probably eaten at Taylor street, Naperville and rush street locations over 200 times over the years. Never had a bad meal or service. But I thought this guy was out of line and so rude to say that to us especially on our anniversary and especially when we were the only people in the entire restaurant inside or outside at the time. And I know we were because the girl that checked us in told us no one was sitting inside as of yet and we were only people outside. We got up and walked out after that comment and we went and ate at Gibsons. You just lost a customer for life that has spent thousands of dollars over the years at rosebud and I hope this message gets to the owners.
A friend recommended Rosebud, and oh wow !! Everything was delicious ~ attentive service, without being too much. Old school feel, great street vibe & atmosphere !! We will definitely make it back on our next trip
Great visit to Chicago with a wonderful visit as always to Rosebud!
Delicious as always. Waitstaff is excellent and friendly!
Rosebud is always a great go to, good food, wonderful service and just off Michigan Ave. Ask for Fransisco as your server. He was attentive, very personable and a just a good person!
Had a great outdoor set up.
Rosebud was able to accommodate my vegan diet, and made me an incredible pasta primavera! I will be returning!
The service was impeccable; very genial and attentive. Unfortunately, the food was subpar and overpriced. I’ve always heard good things about this place, unfortunately, I wouldn’t ever go back because the food just wasn’t good.
Due to city ordinances, ALL patrons had to eat outside. So a lot of traffic noise, but it was OKAY! The host & wait staff more than made up with attentiveness & jokes. The food was OUTSTANDING!! Going again tonight! COVID-19 is not getting us down on our Chicago vacation. Not much to do, because so many businesses are closed. But lots of restaurants are being creative. We will patronize to keep small businesses OPEN and earning a living!!
Our waiter was good - not the problem. We still had 30 minutes left on our reservation time and it started to downpour outside. So I asked the manager if we could see a dessert menu. He said no because we had only 15 minutes left, I reminded him that it was actually 30 minutes, he simply said ok and walked away. I feel bad for our server because his manager cost his additional tip $$ and we def had time to order dessert and be out of there before our time was up.
Great experience except the service was terrible. Server was absent. Matre Dei stepped in.
The food and service were outstanding. The hubby thoroughly enjoyed the lamb chops. I had the veal medallions - so tender and juicy. Can’t wait to go back!
Amazing service , excellent food and upbeat atmosphere
We were in Chicago for an anniversary and wanted a great meal and experience. Was not disappointed. The service was top-notch professional with perfect pacing. The food was great as well — we had veal marsala and sea bass Mediterranean. Maybe the best sea bass I have ever had — generous portion, expertly seared, and a lemon caper sauce to die for! Enjoyed every minute and every bite! A Chicago go-to!!!
Our food was amazing! We shared some salads between the 7 of us girls as appetizers, and all of our entrees (from pastas to the filet) were wonderful. Also nice that in such a nice, upscale restaurant, they still gave us each a separate check.
Excellent Italian food, friendly staff, very clean.
We recently dined at Rosebuds on Rush for a business dinner of 4 people during a trade show. We were in the main dining room which was full; however, the noise level was low and allowed great for conversations. The service was excellent, the appropriate amount of attentiveness balanced with allowing for conversation. Food, as always, was excellent!
Rosebud has excellent service and Italian food. Rosebud needs updated surroundings. The room is void of design and style, outdated. The noise level is very high, our party of 6 could not hear everyone.
Company dinner. Excellent food and service.
Come here once or twice a year
The food is Amazing! Great taste I will totally visit again and their customer service is fast and amazing’
Four sisters met in Chicago for a long weekend. This was a favorite. Food was so good. Service was great. Highly recommend
