I ordered the Greek Salad topped with chicken. The Greek Salad was excellent however the chicken was so dry that I couldn’t eat it. I had to push it to the side. I expected better from Rosebud Prime. Otherwise the service and ambiance was excellent.

Rosebud Prime was delicious! Everything was prepared perfectly. The service was outstanding.
That being said, the restaurant is pretty expensive. A small 8oz filet is $60.
I would recommend having lower priced wines on their wine list. When a couple is paying $120 for 2 filets without sides, a $60 bottle of wine puts the total bill over $200 before tip.
There were no bottles of wine under $57.

Really, really nice and friendly staff! Be forewarned, portions are huge. Food was delicious. But I wish they had mentioned the size! Apparently it's a known thing, but as visitors we had no idea and had no way to take go-boxes, nor did we want to, as we were doing a pre-theater dinner. Downgraded on 'value' because while you get what you pay for, if you can't eat it, it doesn't seem like good value, it seems like a waste.

Food was great. Environment was nice. Servers were a little bit zealous in their effort to serve us. They kept interrupting dinner to fill our water classes, to ask us how we were enjoying our experience, etc. The interruptions were a bit too frequent. The wait staff did serve me a complimentary cannoli to celebrate my birthday and that was very nice.

We went to Rosebud for dinner prior to attending Hamilton. The location was ideal, however as soon as we arrived for our 5pm reservation, the restaurant manager quietly whispered to the hostess to seat us at a table in the center of the restaurant. There were maybe 5 other tables seated in the entire restaurant and the rest were empty. When we asked to be seated at a table not in the center of the restaurant, we were told that the manager specifically said not to seat us at one of the other tables. After we insisted, the very rude manager, (A), finally agreed to seat us by the kitchen! The wait staff was very kind and accommodating but the entire experience from the beginning with the manager ruined the whole experience. Even though the manager made an attempt to reconcile by giving us free dessert, the experience was ruined from the beginning. While this is a reputable restaurant, we did not enjoy the food and found our experience the prior evening at Jeff Ruby’s to be far superior.

We had such a different experience at Jeff Ruby’s in Louisville, Ky. Even though we were not dressed nicely, we were seated at a nice table, the wait staff (especially Adrian) and manager were amazing. Extremely attentive and even brought cake and had the piano player play happy birthday for my daughter. Jeff Ruby’s was incredible.

I will never go back to Rosebud in Chicago again. We were treated terribly and I still do not know why seating was such an issue for this manager. If you are looking for a great place to dine before Hamilton, don’t go to Rosebud unless you enjoy a pretentious experience.

Looking for a Chicago steak on a Saturday night...and they are everywhere. This one won out as it was close to our hotel. And it was great. I’ve been to other Rosebuds but first visit to Prime. Bartender was great, poured martinis and gave the menu overview. Our third arrived and we moved to a table and the service continued to be excellent. Apps were good as was the long awaited steak. Everything was great.

Very overpriced. Oysters Rockefeller ok, too much spinach. Worst Caprese salad I have ever had...butt of an onion actually put on my plate, tasteless hard tomatoes, little basil or balsamic. Petite filet just eh...no flavor. Won't go back. Service good but bad food trumps it considering $158 bill.

Our waiter was not helpful, condescendant and sexist!

We were celebrating our anniversary and meeting friends. Sat at the bar for a quick cocktail while waiting, and we were greeted by a great guy, Nic. Nic was both a bar tender and a waiter, so he had amazing insights on the menu and gave us a sneak peek. The conversation brought us around to our anniversary and then our friends arrived, so we were on our way to our table. The atmosphere and friendliness of every member of the staff we experienced was bar none. A great find for a cozy evening for incredible food and a comfortable ambiance. At the end of our stay, we were offered the dessert menu, which - of course - we could not pass up. The perfect ending to a wonderful night… or so we thought. The cherry on our evening came as a simple, burning candle placed in our dessert and several wait staff congratulating us on our occasion. Nic, as it turned out, couldn't quite keep a secret and made sure to end our experience as incredibly and nice as it began. Thank you to Nic and the whole staff at Rosebud… we cannot wait to return!
