Always reliable for good food, huge portions and excellent service. The unexpected slab of chocolate cake to celebrate two landmark birthdays at our table was a welcome bonus.
We live in the neighborhood and this has become a “go to” when we have out-of-town visitors. Rosebud Prime never disappoints!

It was OK. Basically we were sat in a long row of tables for two, but right on top of each other. We heard every detail of the conversations that were happening on either side of us. Not that big of a deal, but still it was very cramped (the woman next to us got up to go to bathroom, and almost knocked over our bottle of wine with her backside, trying to get through). After we were seated, the waiter came and asked us if we wanted wine and if we were headed to a show, which we told him that we were at 7. We then saw our waiter sparingly after that.

The meal was OK but bland (I had prime rib, it was under seasoned, wife had Chicken Parmesan, said it was OK). For one side, the mashed potatoes, were not seasoned at all and bland, and the other, crispy brussel sprouts with bacon, was not cooked. Literally raw bacon on the plate and the brussel sprouts some were still hard and some were just mushy. Waiter came by after we were done eating entree to ask about meal, I told, & showed, him the side dish, and he said "ok" and just took them away. That was it. Then we were asked about desert, still had 30 minutes before show, so we asked if we would be able to get two irish coffees before we had to leave (mentioned that we had 30 minutes). Said it would not be a problem. 15 minutes later no irish coffee and not seen waiter. after 20 minutes, someone brings us two Jameson and Cokes?!? Huh? Said that was not us so he walked away. 25 minutes later, the waiter comes up and says he will get us the irish coffees still, we told him that it was too late and we need the bill ASAP cause we had to go. He does not come back for another 10 minutes to finally give me the bill. Needless to say we were late.

All in all, it was OK. Have had better food at other places. Was not worth the price for what you get, and there are a lot of options in that area. Probably won't ever be back.

My daughter in law & I we’re meeting for lunch before a concert. Service was excellent and our waiter Nicholas was superb. We both had the outstanding scallops and for dessert we shared a delightful Creme Brûlée. A wonderful dining experience and I know we will return.

A wonderful restaurant with a great selection of traditional steakhouse and Italian fare. The crab cake appetizer was one of the best we have ever had. The lasagna and filet were outstanding. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and personable making the experience that much more enjoyable. A great anniversary dinner.

One of our favorites places in Chicago. Great steaks and a supper club vibe. Jay was an amazing server and he even made up grasshoppers for after dinner drinks despite them not being on the menu. A must visit.

Pretty good option for a lunch place downtown but be prepared for the noise. We were there for a client meeting and they seated us downstairs in a pretty tight dining area. We kept watching our heads to make sure one of the food trays wouldn't fall on us. One of my colleague's order was completely wrong, they forgot her soup and also got her lunch order wrong. I had the salmon salad which was dressed really lightly so I asked for dressing on the side. Not a show stopping place but fine - slightly pricey.

We both had the seafood salad and didn’t care for it. Too many clams, squids and such. There was one shrimp on it.

Victor made our anniversary so so special! He was so attentive! The dining room manager was also lovely. He pointed out a shortcut to get to the CIBC theater to quickly get us there in the rain. A Chicago classic with top notch food and amazing old school service!

It was early on a Saturday (5:30pm) so noise was low. Ambience is excellent and food and service was excellent. The flavors of everyone's dinner was excellent...from fish to steak to pasta. Great job all around.

Food was fine but nothing exceptional. My brother in law had an easy dietary request that the kitchen or waiter couldn’t figure out. It took three tries- merely making veal parm without the sauce.
We did not complain, but the manager or maitre d knew because he apologized and took the item off the bill. That was a good business move. As a result, we would come back.

Husband and I enjoyed an anniversary dinner there after seeing Hamilton. Great service, the manager even checked on several times. Waiter was super friendly and didn’t rush us. Yummy bread basket, and BBQ scallop app was great to share, salads good too. We both had filet. They had me check mine immediately to make sure it was what I wanted. When I thought it could be cooked a hair longer, they immediately took everything back to ensure it was all hot and served together. We shared lava cake, which was plenty for us. They even gave it to us free, with a candle in it since it was our anniversary. Overall, a great meal!
