Great place for dinner before seeing Hamilton . Right across the street!
Ate here before Hamilton and we’ll come back as the food was delicious and the portions are Big Mac and cheese is great
Great place, good food and excellent service.
Our server Nick was fantastic. Very friendly and attentive.
Will go again especially being right across the street from the theater.
Waiter was outstanding!
The restaurant is conveniently located near the theater and not far from the Art Museum. Lunch was a little pricey, but to be expected. The service was good. I had to wait for water refills. The salads were fresh and delicious.
We ate here before watching an evening performance of Hamilton. Great meal and fantastic, attentive service. And right across the street from the theater!
Went to see Hamilton which is directly across the street. Probably the best service I've ever enjoyed. Food was creative, tasty with great presentation. Worth every cent
Great pre-Hamilton fare!
Good ambience. Very friendly service. A bit overpriced, but the experience was quite enjoyable.
service was slow which by itself would not have bothered me. It took a long time to receive glasses of wine. we ordered soup, it was warm, not hot.
waiter finally brought entree , wrong meal for my wife. She ordered marinated steak cobb salad, she got a steak. I ordered steak, and waiting for the correct order to arrive, mine was cool by the time it finally got there.
no apology or offer to adjust final bill.
Great place to dine prior to seeing Hamilton. A little pricey but worth it. Service was great!
Great place! Really enjoyed the atmosphere and service was tops. Tim our server was outstanding! Knowledgeable, friendly, and made excellent recommendations! Will be back!
Awesome experience before seeing Hamilton - another awesome experience!
My wife and I came before we saw Hamilton. It was our first time coming to The Grillroom and we had an excellent experience. Our server was outstanding. He knew the menu very well and was able to pair wines to our taste preference. Our food was delivered in plenty of time for us to make our show but we never felt rushed. Excellent food and excellent service.
Great service, excellent food! We went for dinner before seeing Hamilton.
Great desserts and calamari. Entree was above average
We had heard great things about the Grillroom and had thought it was a perfect place to celebrate. My steak wa tough. Pasta was bland. We were disappointed in the food. Service was fine.
We were promptly seated, although we arrived 30 minutes before our reservation time. We had plenty of time to enjoy dinner before heading across the street to the theater. Drinks were superb. Our server's recommendations worked for us. The mac n cheese with pulled pork was very good, as were the broccolini spinach and the calamari. We even had time for coffee and dessert - yummy hazelnut ice cream for me, and apple crisp for my dinner partner. We will return!
Great lunch before the theater!
My 15th work anniversary.
Ate lunch before we went to Hamilton. Great spot right accross the street from CIBC Theatre.
Just take a look at the place, its amazing! The filet mignon between medium rare and medium is simply delicious adding the flowerless chocolate cake has no words.
Well paced service to ensure everyone makes it to the show on time
Food is typical American grill. Great location if seeing Hamilton. Service is very good
The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our server was phenomenal!
Just average.. One filet came out under cooked, Brussels sprouts not really roasted. Service started out great but waited 10 mins for someone so we could get the filet reheated, which of course ruined the steak.. got a mixed drink at beginning and didn’t ask or stop by until the end.
I highly doubt they actually use prime beef.. it was average at best.
The food was amazing, and the atmosphere was wonderful. It's nice and quiet without feeling like you had to whisper. The waitress we had also had a larger table of 6 that was ordering drinks so her attention was mostly focused on them since we were a party of 2 with out alcohol, we did feel a little neglected compared to her service with that table. Besides that it was great.
We were going to see Hamilton on Sunday afternoon. Since I have trouble walking long distances, I wanted some place close to the theater. Grillroom is right across the street. We had a lovely booth and enjoyed our meals.
It is pricey so be prepared.
I would recommend that they offer upscale hamburgers too.
The service and food were top notch. Will come again the next time I am in town.
I was extremely late for my reservation. The staff was very understanding and actually seated my party before I arrived which was great!! I would definitely come back.
Traveled from Atlanta to celebrate my brother's birthday after seeing the powerful Alvin Ailey dancers. Food was great!
I was a little worried after reading some Yelp! Reviews but we were not disappointed. Location was perfect since we were staying at the Palmer House and seeing Hamilton after dinner which was directly across the street. Our drinks and food (women had the Surf & Turf and men had the Pesto Salmon) were fabulous and service impeccable. Would definitely return and recommend.
The ambiance was great! Excellent service. The waiter was very courteous.
The location is perfect for a pre-theater dinner. The service was excellent and the food was good.
Had drinks and dinner before Hamilton. It was excellent. Filet was perfect. Great menu. Wonderful attention by staff. Starting with the breadbasket, Caesar salad and entrees all perfect! Strongly recommend.
Dinner before Hamilton - directly across the street. Great steak, excellent service - would recommend and visit again.
Solid lunch spot
Steaks and salad were good. Fish special was standout. Loved the lobster mash potatoes. Our server was fantastic. Hosts were great too, they accommodated our special table requests, help you with your coat, and leave bday cards on tables celebrating.
We chose this place as much for the location as for the food. It is directly across the street from the theatre we attended and is within a block of the hotel where we stayed. It was a good choice. We had the calimari and the beet salad as appetizers, and both were excellent. We went off script and had a chicken dish and a pasta for entres. The pasta was excellent. The chicken was good. The server recommended the flourless chocolate cake for dessert and that was excellent as well. Service was outstanding. The rhythm with the server was perfect and the water glasses were always full. The bill was about what I expected for dinner in downtown Chicago. The interior of the place looks very new and was very comfortable. There was a good energy, but it was still quiet enough to have conversation.
The back of the dining room was uncomfortably hot. And we are from Texas.
We had a wonderful meal! Steak, salmon, shrimp cocktail, wine, salads, fries and dessert! Everyone loved what they had. Our waitress was fantastic! Would def go back and not just bc we are seeing a show across the street!
