Food was absolutely delicious.
We were sat and told that there would be no one sitting next to us for 90 minutes. 40 minutes later there's a couple sitting next to us when the restaurant was not even 50% occupied.
We enjoyed our food and wanted to order another appetizer later and was informed by out waitress that there may not be enough time to cook the appetizer because there was "another reservation at our table in thirty minutes".
These things on top of drink prices that rival the Four Seasons shows me that I'll pass on this restaurant in the future.
Whiskey happy hour is a steal! The bartender Luis was fantastic.
They fought us to sit a 5th person yet tables empty the basically threaten us to be out at 1.5 hours. For a table of 5. When we see 3 other parties of 6. The host is a problem. Food was great , drinks great , but service and hospitality matter. No class
It was a good birthday celebration and the desserts were amazing!
It was a great first date. The salmon dish was excellent and the Sazerac drinks were perfect. The chicken dish was good but paled in comparison to everything else.
Always a great dinner at The Franklin Room. Our wait service was amazing as was the food and drinks.
Everything was amazing our waiter, food, and drinks. Great way to start our New Year’s Eve celebration.
Great food and drinks! Went on NYE with 3 of my friends and really enjoyed my first experience here. There was a slight mix up with an entree that one of my friends ordered, but the staff was extremely accommodating. They provided a free order of taro fries and mango cheesecake to us because of the mistake and slight wait on the entree. Would definitely visit again!
New Year’s Eve date
This place never gets old and never disappoints, can't wait to go back.
This a great date place. The staff was very accommodating. Our server was wonderful and gave us just the right amount of attention needed to have a wonderful time.
As for the food, it was fantastic. We had the Mushroom Tartine that was fabulous. The Asian Kale Salad, that had some spice to it. For entrees we had the Sea Bass with a potato cake. They were delicious. We also had the Scallops with quinoa and peas. They were cooked perfectly and the sides a perfect accompaniment.
The drinks (Perfect Rye Manhattan and Paloma) were spot on.
I will add this to my regular list of places to go to.
peter the bartender is dope!
Great food good service the servers was quick and efficient
We miss the cocktail and oyster happy hour!
we love the Franklin Room. we discovered Franklin Room a couple of months ago and we have happily integrated into our Chicago visits now - including buying our own whiskey bottle they 'keep' for us now :-). This time we brought 4 more folks with us and they also loved it! food is excellent and a lovely variety (best oysters I've ever had) and many plates are easy to share as well.
we will be back!
Always one of our favorite places to enjoy when coming to Chicago. Fantastic as always!!
After our truly tasteful appetizers, taro fries and lamb chops, we enjoyed 4 lovely and different meals; sea bass, scallops, chicken and steak. All were cooked to perfection. We then indulged in a bit of dessert with the chocolate crunch, which was absolutely heavenly. It was a really great dining experience and we will be back.
We went to celebrate a friend's birthday and had a absolute ball! The staff was attentive and kind. I will definitely be going back soon!
Best steak I have ever eaten! All of the food was the best
As always The Franklin Room does not disappoint. The food was amazing, the service was wonderful, our server Julia was spot on with drinks, apps and some birthday cheese cake to finish our meal.
The food was pretty good! Really enjoyed lamp chops and mussels for appetizers. The tuna appetizer barely had tuna in it but was pretty good as well. Drinks were pretty good - cocktails were just okay but whiskey was a hit! Steak was well cooked and potatoes were very good. The vegetarian dish was ravioli and pretty small in comparison to other dishes and not as good in flavor, but still quite enjoyable!
Always a very good experience at The Franklin Room
Great food. Everyone loved it snd we had a party of 8
Everything was absolutely amazing! We will be back here next time to Chicago!
The restaurant is not very big and the noise level can make conversations a little difficult. The food is the standout. From appetizers- mussels excellent- to cocktails - fall wanderer tasty and unique - to the entrees all fresh and delicious. We didn’t have dessert but probably also good. Prices are reasonable. Recommend a visit.
Awesome and unique experience! Server was outstanding and food was incredible!!!
Wonderful for my birthday celebration! Good and drinks were excellent. Great service and wonderful music in the background
Birthday and a piece of cake was brought out without even resting it.
Spent day in city seeing Holiday lights. The Franklin Room was perfect end to the day. Great food and delicious drinks. Would definitely recommend and go back.
Great environment and food. Little overpriced and service was slow but enjoyed our time/meal.
We capped a great day with whiskies here. Got to share this favorite spot with our favorite people!
Fantastic food and incredible whiskey menu. Service was spot on, too. We will be back!
The food very good and the service was outstanding! I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Great food and drinks, we had wonderful time and will be back soon
Great food and fun environment
