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!

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.

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 The room is void of design and style, outdated.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.

I have been eating at Rosebuds on Rush for many years. It’s a place I take family and friends for a special occasion. This visit was to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The staff went an extra mile to make sure all our needs were met. They are one of the only restaurants I go where the service is consistently great!

Met with a couple friends for dinner.
I really enjoy this restaurant! The ambiance is excellent and the food is very good too! I ordered the Veal Marsala. The sauce was reduced perfectly. The service was excellent!
Little pricey on the drinks, but walking distance from the hotel, so we had a couple. Overall a great experience!

Went to Rosebud on Rush for Valentines Day, and overall it was a great experience. Good food and great service, especially for such a busy day. My only con is we ordered a couple of signature cocktails, and we did not like either cocktail.

Really first-rate food, with excellent service. My only objection is the expense-account prices. Both special entrees of the evening were well over US$50.

Food was good. Not spectacular, but good. The unfortunate part of the evening was the treatment we received by the staff. All we wanted to do was chill and relax for our last evening in Chicago. However, we were rushed (or told ) to leave the bar and rushed to our seats in a corner. The entire evening was just plain weird. The overall feeling was that we were not welcomed.
