Great service and timely delivery of food
Was visiting Chicago for a weekend and looking for a nice place to grab dinner with my wife. Found The Grillroom and was able to get a last minute reservation .
The restaurant was terrific. My steak was perfect and the sides were delicious. My wife ordered scallops and was wowed. Great Chicago steakhouse. Will definitely be back.
Took 25 minutes for the waitress to come to our table after being seated. Other than that everything was delicious
Great location. Fabulous food. Booth was a little bit squishy. My chest was 2 inches away.
It wasn’t what I expected. Drinks were ok. Food was just fine but nothing interesting on their flavor or unique. They didn’t have two of the cuts that we wanted. N
The food was fantastic and our waitress went above and beyond. We will definitely be returning.
My husband loved the steak. I love salmon and honestly I was a little disappointed. This may sound funny but it tasted way too fish otherwise everything was excellent.
We enjoyed a lovely 4 course Valentine's Day dinner featuring oysters Rockefeller, lobster bisque, pistachio encrusted halibut, and chocolate covered strawberries. Each course was delicious. The service was excellent and the ambiance suitable for a romantic dinner or any other type of dinner. The location is very convenient to Chicago Symphony Center and the Art Institute.
Not amazing, we were not impressed at all beginning to end. The gentleman who initially greeted and sat us seemed annoyed. It was not busy at all but our server kept forgetting simple items, like straws after we asked. We would’ve excused that but the food was also mediocre. We came bc online the menu said lamb chops, which we wanted but they didn’t actually have any. We decided to split a ribeye and lobster tail—the ribeye was quite small and overly salted, the lobster tail was cold and overcooked, very rubbery. The best part of our meal were the crispy brussel sprouts.
Everything from the greeting to the farewell was a pleasure.
Accommodated our large party very well. Food was spectacular and the service was above and beyond. Highly recommend! It’s almost like a hidden gem.
Excellent menu offerings - extensive food and wine list
Food was excellent they have a nice wine list not huge but a very good variety of selections and well priced. Steak was very good quality and done as requested. Very fresh oysters also excellent.
Tasty efficient meal. Always a pleasure to dine at the grille!
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.
Good food and quick service for a business lunch. Have not dined for anything else other than lunch but would imagine it would b good or dinner being that is close to the theatre district. Definitely recommend it for good food and service,
Wonderful from start to finish. Dining room was a bit quiet but our server was perceptive and friendly without being either overbearing or non-existent. Always there when we needed him and had great suggestions. Support staff was equally as attentive. Bar was quite busy. Seafood appetizers were fresh and steaks were cooked perfect. We will be back!
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.
Hi Mike, thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable feedback from your experience. I do apologize that it was not 100 % what you had expected, and I will use your notes as training tools to improve on in the future. I hope you dine with us again someday soon, and please ask for me personally. My name is Jason, and I am the GM
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
