Sat outside which was nice. Covid precautions were excellent. One issue: service was a bit overly attentive in that they were constantly trying to clear our plates from the table. We felt so rushed that we were unable to calmly finish our appetizers, entrees or deserts. Food is above average, but not sure if we would go back.

October 2020 Rosebud in Rush is a favorite anytime I visit the city! Service was very quick (maybe too quick?) and everyone was accommodating and friendly. It did feel a but rushed. I had the rigatoni alla vodka and as always, the flavors were incredible as was the pasta. My kid had tortellini with marinara sauce (he's 8) and he loved it. The pasta portions are easily enough for two adults and I always feel guilty leave a bowlful bc I couldn't eat it all.

Covid precautions are taken very seriously in the city and Rosebud was no exception - Individual oil and parm for bread for example. Everyone in masks unless seated.

Tradition runneth over at Rosebud and it was, once again, a delightful experience.

Tables near the host stand and waiter station are never good and this one was no exception. It was also the route to the bathroom. They could not move us so we had no choice.

Food was very plentiful but a bit bland. Waiters were nice though.

My boyfriend and I decided to try this place for our 1 year anniversary. The food was good, desert was even better!

Not sure if he was the manager or the owner but he was awesome! He sat us, made convo with every table throughout the entire night. And even came over at the end of dinner to personally sing happy anniversary to us. That part made my entire night. Thank you all for a great experience!

Great food and good service. We ate outside on the patio and it's noisy! The warning signal from the garage door at Saks kept blaring all night long and muscle cars paraded past out table. But it still was fun to eat outside.

The service at this location was something to be remembered...waiter and host were always checking up on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Food is moderately priced except if you get additions like chicken and shrimp but well worth it! My wife and I will be back again.

Their covered patio is an excellent place to enjoy their Italian specialties - spaghetti and meatballs and square pasta. Portions were generous enough for us each to take some home. Service was attentive including bringing water for my dog.

No fault of the restaurant but the street traffic was aggressive and the GARAGE BUZZER across the street on Rush was non-stop. Went off continually during our entire dining experience (a combination of malfunctioning and going off too much for each opening / closing). Rosebud ALWAYS great. Thanks

We have dined at Rosebud on Rush for many years. We have noticed that “things” have been slipping for the last few years... from the food to the service.
Recently, we dined outside due to the Pandemic.
This is an Italian iconic Chicago city restaurant! We have noticed lately that the bread they serve has gone downhill from a nice basket of tasty breads and crackers to just some “nice” warm bread. However, this night we were served 2 hard cold nearly stale rolls. Unacceptable for a five star Italian restaurant .
We also noticed that the chopped salad which used to have a large shrimp across the top along with hearts of palm, simply have been removed. I understand cutbacks but they significantly raised the price too!
The wait staff seem disengaged and disinterested in provided the level of service we are accustomed to receiving.
These may sound like petty issues to most but it’s annoying and sad to see the quality of this restaurant decline due to mismanagement!
