The best thing was the service— excellent and impeccable. The drinks were very good and strong. Looking forward to coming here in the day, also in the summer when the rooftop is open.

Very disappointed. I made our reservations MONTHS in advance to celebrate a special evening there. We drove over 4.5 hours so imagine our disappointment when we had to wait an 1.5 for our table. Between the very long wait and the extremely loud music this made for a very unpleasant evening.

Terrace 16 was amazing. The service was top notch, the food was prepared to perfection, and the portions were huge. We had so much food, that we actually took some back to our suite, and ate it again the next evening. Definitely a 5 star restaurant. A bit expensive, but I don’t mind paying extra, when it’s that good. We will be back.

It was embarrassing to see how disorganized this restaurant was. Long wait, to the point i had to go ask for service at our table. Not a pleasant experience, in particular with a customer present. A 15% deduction was made but it left a sour taste. I would have appreciated to speak with someone in charge.

Table 16 was just OK. I expected a more formal restaurant with stunning views and super delicious food. The restaurant is quite small, just a few tables and it feels more like a cafe. There were no views at all, first because we got a table right in the middle and second because the views are blocked by the terrace which is not in use in the winter - and 16th floor is not high enough to get good views anyway considering that it is located among lots of very tall buildings.
The food was so so. We got the rib-eye steak for two which was pre-sliced to make it look bigger and a bit dry. The bread / spreads were delicious and the veggies were tasty. Drinks were ok. We didn’t have desert.
Service was outstanding, everyone was super nice and very professional.

This was our first trip to Terrace 16, and it most definitely wont be our last. First allow me to clarify something. If you are looking for a cheap meal, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a dining experience that will leave your taste buds begging for more, you are looking into the right place. My Wife had the filet, I had the pork chop, and we shared the crab cakes. Hands down the best filet and chop we have ever had the pleasure of dining on. This was a remarkable experience from the time we arrived, until the time we left. The staffing was absolutely phenomenal.

Small, intimate dining room with incredible view of the city, rooftop overlooking the Chicago River. The hostess called the afternoon before our reservation to ask if our party had any allergies or was celebrating a special occasion. Dinner is exactly what you pay for, the crab cake was excellent and by far, the best steak in the city. We will be dining here again!
