Leisurely afternoon lunch was relaxing with excellent service from Maria. The Bloody Mary was perfectly spiced paired well with the generous Reuben & handcut fries. Easily accessible as a guest in Lowe's hotel which was not the case for us. Park in garage and take elevator to hotel lobby, the lovely hostess Marissa awaits your arrival.

Associated with the Loews Chicago O'Hare hotel, The Ashburn is a step above a normal hotel restaurant. We had lunch which offered a wide range of alternatives. The Caeser salad with grilled shrimp was excellent, fresh and tasty. It was perfectly dressed with the house created Caesar dressing, with white anchovies, of course. Other offerings looked delightful with the Chef's attention to detail obvious.

Service was appropriately attentive for our business luncheon, accommodating without hovering. For a business luncheon near O'Hare, this was a great find. Valet parking was complimentary, which was also a nice touch.

Service when we first arrived was good. After we were served our food our waiter completely ignored us. We couldn't get our drinks refilled or any other amenities.
We had to ask the busboy for a desert menu.
My wife asked for a virgin drink from the bar. They refused to make any drinks without alcohol. They finally brought her a fruit punch non alcoholic drink that we were charged $14.00 for. She had 2 drinks at a cost of $28.00 for something similar to Hawaiian Punch.
Another person in our party ordered a drink and asked to have it "on the rocks". There was a $12.00 charge for the drink and a $2.00 charge on our bill for the ice that went into that drink. I'm surprised they didn't charge us for the coasters the drinks were set on.
I ordered the house bloody mary which came in a jar and was very good. Unfortunately that was the only part of the meal that was any good. The food was over priced and bland.
The total bill for 3 people was $153.00. When the waiter brought back my change from $200.00 he proceeded to put the money on our table for about 2 seconds and then took the money and put it in his pocket without me telling him to keep the change. I had to demand that he return the money to the table.
I would not recommend you go there unless you're willing to eat bland food that is way over priced.

The host was extremely rude. We arrived with a reservation and told us sit anywhere. But there were no tables available except high tops which we selected regular tables. He was extremely abrasive and confrontational. The food was great but my experience was slightly jaded dude to the very unprofessional hit. It wasnt even busy, I will probably not dine here again to the uncomfortably the hit has presented

Went there for the first time before a show at Rosemont Theater. I was blown away by the service we received. It was like we had been going there forever. Everyone was so friendly. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the choices on the menu. My wife and I ordered different things and we both raved at how good they were. She had the salmon & I had steak . Both cooked perfectly. Finished off our meal with excellent desserts. On our way out, I had to stop by the kitchen and tell the chef "Thank You".
I would recommend for any occasion.

The food was not very good. The best thing was desert. My daughter had octopus salad that happen to have a shell in it(they made it right by adjusting my bill also apologized). While you were eating your salad they brought your main course so it sat and got cold.

Good food, good ambiance, great service, reasonable prices. Very empty on a Friday night but it's at a hotel in the burbs so not shocking. They were out of a fair amount of items on the menu though, which I found offputting. It was 6pm on a Friday, not 9pm on a Sunday. How are they out of anything that early into the weekend?

Service was awful. We were there for breakfast. After offering us coffee and juice, no one came by for over 20 minutes. We think it might have been a ploy to get us to go to the buffet ($25 per person) vs ordering off the menu (average $15 per person) as time was tight as it typically is for business men at breakfast.

Unfortunately we were disappointed with our visit to the Ashburn. Started out with no lemonade for my Arnold Palmer. Next we ordered an appetizer and a wedge salad which was never brought to our table, we were given all of our main entrees and that is all. We were offered free dessert which we decided to have. They were out of the gelato flavor my son requested, he got a different one. My bread pudding was on the dry side. Two people ordered Fish and Chips, there was a lot of breading and not so much fish.

Hard to say if I would recommend The Ashburn. It might just have been a bad night.

We dined here prior to a concert at the Rosemont Theater across the street. With the exception of the cranky woman at the front, it was excellent and we highly recommend! Our waiter was outstanding. He asked about our plans and if they included the show, and he followed by making sure our meal was served as swiftly as possible. I regret we didn’t make note of his name. My son loved his burger, hubby and guest really enjoyed their bolognese, another enjoyed his fish fry, and I really enjoyed a pizza with accommodating GF crust and held the cheese to make it vegan. I’d go back!0

It was our first visit, we wrent even guests of the hotel and we were treated amazingly well. Then the food and cocktails did not disappoint! The cocktails were great, a bit strong for me but for the price I would hope that they would be. The burger was amazing and a pulled pork special was so flavorful. The cookie dessert was perfect. Definitely a great find, will visit again when in the area!

Friends and I went during restaurant week. We each ordered from the set menu. $38 for appetizer, main dish and desert. There were 3 choices of appetizer and main dish, so we got one of each and sampled everything. The portions were very generous and food was delicious. You got a lot of food for the money. It was actually too much food. Restaurant is eerily quiet. Couldn't understand why it was so empty. Host was not particularly friendly but the other staff made up for it.
