Staff was rude and condescending. I asked to switch tables and was met with the condescending attitude of the staff telling me I should be happy with the table that was given to me and that I am beginning to sound ungrateful. I thought this manner of speaking to me was completely unnecessary and wrong. It seemed everything was a problem--by the end I couldn't wait to get out of there. Totally unpleasant and the staff did an excellent job at making my girlfriend and me feel unwelcome and uncomfortable.

We were looking for someplace to go on a Sunday early evening downtown. Very few venues were open at the time. We were happy to find Florentine's in the Marriott Hotel on Adams. There were very few people there. We enjoyed the salmon and ice cream. The service was spot on.

Great service.
The Brussel Sprout Salad was a little bland and the sausage pasta dish was a little salty. Cocktails were generous . Ambience ok .

Very inattentive waiter. At the heart of the lunch rush—perhaps they were understaffed? Another staff member resolved the issue quickly, but then we also had issues getting our check in a timely manner. Food was great, as usual, though.

Great spot for lunch and business meetings. I'd rate the restaurant 5 stars except when you check-in they will not seat you until your entire party has arrived. Seems unnecessary for a place with a big business lunch crowd.

We went on Xmas- reservation at 2 pm. We were a little disappointed that the full menu was not available. Instead it was the brunch menu until 4 pm. This left little non- brunch choices. Although the food was terrific- my husband had a hamburger. Not special for Xmas and we would have preferred a larger choice. Service is wonderful.

Horrible. We arrived at our reservation time at 5:30. We ordered apps and dinner at 5:45. Our apps came out about 30 minutes later. But...By 7:45 we still had not received our food! 2 hours!

We finally had to leave for an even we had, without dinner. It never came!

I had been to The Florentine before Goodman Theatre, but it was always on a Saturday evening. This visit was on a Thursday evening, and what a difference in noise levels. The noise, primarily from the after work bar crowd was so loud, we could not carry on a normal table conversation. The meal was quite good. I do wish the filet was not served on a bed of mashed potatoes. Next time I order it, I will request the kitchen to substitue a green such as the broccolini. Service was personable and the pastas were delicious.

The food was amazing. Try the squash rings. I was skeptical but they were amazing. If you are going on a night the pre-theater menu is available, it offers an amazing bargain. The food was amazing and the service was even better. Highly recommend.

We stopped in at Florentine before going to the theater. The prefix menu is outstanding! Three sumptuous courses all served fairly quickly with the idea of getting you in and out in plenty of time to make it to the show. I enjoyed the Caesar salad, the beef fillet (+ $10) and ice cream for dessert. My daughter enjoyed the same salad, the Scottish salmon which was outstanding and mango sorbet for dessert. Both of us were in gastronomic heaven! Keep doing what you do at the Florentine.

Food is typically excellent. But this visit food was really over salted. It won’t stop me from going back again, as this seemed like maybe just a one-off.

Above average for a hotel restaurant. We were there for brunch. Service was attentive and friendly when present. They have some fun Italianate dishes on the brunch menu. The brunch Amatriciana should use guanciale and not pancetta but it was tasty. The eggs with truffle and pecorino were excellent. The chai was also really good. The breakfast donuts were tasty too. Overall would recommend in this area especially appreciated a decent but quickish brunch that left time to go to Art Institute before the ballet matinee.

Was pouring rain, so wanted to stay close to where I was staying and found a gem right in the hotel! Excellent food and service. Watched a manager who looked just like my brother visit each table to add that personal touch to the dining experience. Highly recommended!

We reserved Based on menu choices online and when we showed up and were seated they said they only had a small menu that night due to the Marathon. We would have expected to get a notice or something as there were minimal choices and the portions were extremely small for the prices . Our waiter was ok but didn’t offer desert or anything to make up for our disappointing night . We had planned in advance as my son was running the marathon .

I was there for the Chicago Marathon. They had a limited menu which I appreciated. The kitchen could not keep up and the wait was a bit longer than one would expect. All and all it was fine and I got the pasta I needed for the race but would not recommend for any special occasion.
