Always the best service. And the bartender Tatsy makes the best Espresso martinis. My partner always asks how he makes them so we can order them the same way at other restaurants. He said the secret is love. Useless. But still amazing.
Ordered NY Strip med rare, while cooked as requested, the piece of meat wasn't that great in that it contained a little to much gristle for my pallet. The Buttery mash potatoes were a bad choice in that the lack of flavor evened when seasoned were left in serving dish. 8.00 wasted.
Side salad was very fresh but heavily laidened w dressing of choice, l should have asked for it on side. my mistake.
Cocktail Drink was excellent. Excellent support staff, prompt and courteous.
First time I have dined here, for $85.00 + tip , expected better.
We loved it so much we went again the next night! Oysters fresh and delicious. Filet mignon and lobster tail perfect. The herb-crusted whitefish was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. Great drinks and wine. Even the mashed potatoes were special. Above all, the service—including our waiter, the busser, and the host—was impeccable: attentive, friendly but not intrusive, perfectly timed, just brilliant!
Love this place ... great spot for lunch
The wrong meal was delivered to the table for the person I was having lunch with Seems like the correct meal was then rushed because the sauce wasn't hot. My food was fine but I had to start eating alone so my fish wouldn't get cold.
Hi Stevie, I want to thank you for taking the time and providing us with this valuable feedback. It does make for a slightly awkward situation when the incorrect meal is brought out to a guest at a table. Mistakes do occur on occasion, but the main concern of ours is always guest awareness, and happiness. I will address this type of issue with my staff, and have them prerpared more on how to handle it. Ask for me directly next time you are making a reservation. My name is Jason and I am the GM
Great place, seemingly unknown, with excellent food, service and atmosphere. A regular place I'll take clients for those reasons (and value!)
Great service and the food was delicious.. The steak was cooked perfectly and had great flavor.. Our server was very attentive and the food was timely..
Such an amazing evening. From walking in the door to walking out the door everything was wonderful! The service was top notch. Very knowledgeable waiter with great recommendations. The food and drinks were excellent! The host was very kind and took pictures for us (more than once).
We ordered the tomahawk steak... asked for medium but got medium rare ... the steak was so flavorful... it was perfect. Went to the show across the street then came back for dessert and a nightcap.... carrot cake was DELISH 😋
Family stop before Hamilton.
My teenage children and i are here before going to CIBC theater for Hamilton. They were very accommodating as we had a showtime to attend to and we were late because of traffic. I love that they are literally across the street from the theater entrance and have a wonderful parking garage connected below. We did not need to bring coats. The food was amazing and so was our server-so kind and delightful! We had a wonderful experience there and will return! I highly recommend!
The Grillroom has a wonderful upscale ambiance with reasonable prices for great food! It is easy to find and the entire staff was lovely. We enjoyed our dinner there and hope to return on our next trip to Chicago!
The food and service was fantastic! Arguably one of the best steaks I've ever eaten! The wait staff was amazing, and I loved the ambience. Perfect dinner before enjoying a play =)
Good food, great service, pleasant ambiance. Excellent for a group of 5 or 6.
Overall, I enjoyed The Grillroom. My boyfriend and I went there for dinner on NYE. I had a salad and he had a steak. We were both pleased with our dishes. The server was nice and we didn't feel rushed or neglected. The place wasn't packed, but it was busy enough for a holiday. I'd go back.
Food and service was outstanding! We will for sure be back!
Nice atmosphere, especially if you sit in the back, food was de-lish-us, and our waitress was patient, friendly and attentive. Really nice night out for our anniversary. Thanks Grillroom!
Excellent: will certainly be back when next in Chicago
The Grillroom has a great menu and wine choices were comprehensive, with some really interesting options. We had oysters, sesame ahi tuna, paired perfectly with a delicious white wine. The service was professional and friendly. They are clearly used to getting theater goers in and out on time, without making them feel rushed.
If we were in town longer, we would go back and try one of the steak options.
It was a horrendous experience. We ordered a specific wine and was given the incorrect one. We waited 20 minutes for our meal order to be taken and then had to wait 30 minutes for our salad. The food eventually arrived but was cold and the waitress was unapologetic. The manager said they were short, but that did not excuse the poor customer service. I hope they just had a bad day. Having spent over $250.00 I would have expected better service. There are many restaurants in the loop, I would suggest a different one instead of this one.
Thank you for leaving this review! We are sorry that this experience with us was not a positive one. We hold ourselves to a very high level with our service and it seems that we missed the mark with your visit. We have spoken to staff to help avoid situations like this from happening again. We hope to see you again in the future.
We brought our 12 and 14 year old children for a special Christmas dinner. We were treated like royalty to an exceptional experience. Our waitress was fantastic. Our food was delicious and perfectly cooked. A great overall memorable experience.
Dinner with the kids
Ate here because of location to CIBC theatre. Food was just okay
Other then waiting for five minutes or longer for a waiter to show up at the table to ask us if we needed a drink. The experience was wonderful
Food was amazing! Beautiful place for dinner!
Great spot to go to before seeing Hamilton. Food was excellent! Great dirty martini!
Most of the food in our group of 6 was good: however, my 9-year old ordered pasta with shrimp and the shrimp was spoiled...smelled and tasted like ammonia as was the French onion soup (soured) for another person in our group. They did the usual and offered my daughter a 'free' dessert, which she declined...yet charged us for both returned, uneaten food items. Very disappointed that I spent over $400 here when there are so many other fine dining options in the area.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review, Craig! We are very disheartened to hear that your daughter's meal was not what was expected. We pride ourselves on the food that we serve and we are sorry to hear that we missed the mark with your experience. We will be sure to pass these comments on to our staff to help prevent situations like this from happening in the future. We hope to see you again in the future.
Will be back in our next trip to Chicago. We stayed directly across the street at the hotel.
Nice restaurant, especially convenient for the Theater. We were seated in a separate room with a small number of tables, it was nice, and not very noisy.
The food was delicious, the only issue encountered was the server got one of my party's order wrong. My niece ordered fish, but the server heard chicken.
The other disappointment was the leftovers leaked before we got home.
Great ambiance and good food. Definitely recommend.
Steak was great. Location was great. Service was great. Charcuterie board price vs what you get was a joke. Side dish of roasted potatoes was incredibly dry and bland. The delicious sear on the steaks saved the entire experience from what would have been an underwhelming “fine dining” disappointment.
Made reservation 2 months and and got a table next to the restroom.
Great pre-theatre dining experience. Attentive service without feeling rushed.
Are waiter didn’t say a word to us so we left after our waters
We are sorry for the experience that you had with us. We will be sure to address staff to prevent these types of situations from occurring again. We hope to see you again soon.
Pasta dish was sauced just right. Others ordered steaks and they were perfectly done. Service was not rushed and friendly.
Restaurant was good. The service was a little slow, which is surprising because It is right across the street from a theater. My wife really enjoyed her crab cake. My pork chop was good! Just nothing exceptional.
Great for lunch. A good menu and efficient service.
Good vibe and atmosphere. Food was very good, priced on the higher side, but mostly fair. Excellent spot for heading to the theater.
Christmas family dinner
Great time with great food
