Very accommodating and food was fantastic. Service seemed slow at a couple points when drinks were wearing thin but staff was pleasant and friendly. Could have been a few factors impacting this perception. Would certainly recommend this establishment and frequent again.

We were a table of 5 coming immediately after a Hamilton matinee. Be aware that sidewalk seating is an option, but we opted for indoor. Big difference - sidewalk is great for the hustle and bustle when weather is nice. Inside is cool, with classic music piped in (sinatra, bennett, etc). The food and beverage were delicious, service excellent. Ambiance was perfect. Highly enjoyable with good company.

The meal was over-priced, the bread was stale. Aside from the steak that was excellent, the rest of the meal was not worth $120...

The place was packed but clearly well run. Our server was great. The salmon melted in my mouth! You really need a sign above the restroom door, tho! Next time I’m in Chicago, I’ll look forward to being there again.

We had to send the steaks back twice but once they got them cooked as ordered they were wonderful. Great server. So convenient to the theater across the street.
Nice restaurant. Would definitely go again and would recommend again.

Went there before Hamilton. The location is great in regards to seeing a show at the CIBC Theater, however the quality of the food, menu selection, beverage selection, wasn’t anything notable. We are at RPM Italian another night and that was much better experience on everything, and about the same price point.

Excellent steakhouse. Place became a ghost town after the show started across the street, but overall it was a very enjoyable experience. I had the ribeye medium rare with the gorgonzola crust which was excellent. Also had a side of brussel sprouts and the wedge salad. It was good and I would go back and visit again.

Absolutely fabulous. Was a little weary trying a place directly across from the theater for Hamilton... afraid it would be cliche lack service. But it was great from the minute we arrived. If you plan on appetizers to dessert make sure to plan at least 2-2.5 hours before the show to enjoy your meal and pay the check. Such a great place and throw back to the great steak houses of the 50’s and Rat pack days. Would certainly take family and friends! Food was delicious, service top notch and perfect location for the theAter!!!

Food was fine, not the best meal I have ever had but tasty. The bill was high for what we got. Services was great. The restaurant was rather empty that felt weird. It is directly across the street the the Hamilton show. 2 stars of the show also were eating in the restaurant!

I have eaten here three times after seeing Hamilton and have been pleased each time, as were my guests. It is convenient to the theatre and quick service. I highly recommend the Brussel Sprouts, the salads and just about everything on the menu looks delicious.

The waitress was too slow. We told her we had tickets to the show at the theater across the street and it seemed like forever for her to take our order. Also, we were supposed to have received a "special" anniversary treat from the restaurant but we did not have enough time because the waitress was so slow.

Our waitress Maura was so gracious with explaining all the food options available. She also provided us with such GREAT service that I will definitely visit the Grill Room again!
