Dinner before the theater. Nothing bad. Just not fantastic. Overall good. Service good. Food good.
Both my wife and I enjoyed the 8oz Filet. Both were cooked perfectly. Also had a 2016 Trefethen Cab from their great wine list, and it did not disappoint. Since it was outperform Anniversary, the waiter brought us a Tres Leches Dessert. Perfect touch and our waiter was amazing, attentive without being intrusive.
The steaks were excellent. Wine was delicious. Side orders were average in preparation but huge in quantity. We both thought our waiter should have informed us of this as we ended up wasting a lot of food because we were returning to our homes after a vacation in Chicago, and could not take doggie bags. We would have ordered half the sides had we known.
Overall excellent dining experience. Beautiful presentation, food was very good. Kid friendly.
Located across the street from CIBC Theater makes it a perfect location for lunch before the matinee. We ate outside which understandably increased the noise but not an issue.
Perfect place for happy hour and dinner before seeing Hamilton! Drinks, food & service wonderful!!
This place is as great. Food was great
I will be brief and to the point: The special of the day Blackend wildcaught Salmon dinner was spectacular as well as my Vodka Tonic. Great pre or post show spot across from the CIBC Theatre and certainly worthy of a repeat visit. Very friendly and courteous to a lone female diner.
Great food and service. Missed our reservation time due to Chicago traffic and the restaurant was fantastic about getting us seated and served as soon as we arrived. Very impressed!
Out with my granddaughters before going to Hamilton.
Excellent food! Right across from the theater
Four of us had lunch before a matinee performance of Hamilton. The service was very efficient allowing us plenty of time to finish our meal and get in line for the play. The food was very good, and along with a nice glass of wine made for a nice experience.
Our salmon specials were exceptional! Also enjoyed the creme brulee before taking in the amazing Hamilton performance.
Went to Hamilton across the street for our anniversary. Our dining experience was great. A nice way to end a good day.
We were seated immediately and service was great. However, my steak was over cooked and had to be sent back. By the time I received a new steak, everyone else was finished and the steak was charred so badly that I had to cut the char off to eat it. I would expect more from a chop house where my steak cost $50.
Made reservations a week in advance so we were able to walk right in and received top notch service from the staff to the quality and quantity of the food. I highly recommend this place, especially with proximity to the theater!
What a great vibe! It was a perfect venue in which to eat before the show across the street. Very clever that some of the specialty drinks had names that coincided with the Hamilton performance across the street! The tuna tartare was delicious as were the drinks.
The service was very good, but the food was average at best. Had what was supposed to be a prime New York strip steak that was very tough. Not at all what i expected, especially for the $40 plus price. Many better choices in the city.
two thumbs up! excellent service surpassed only by the quality of the entrees.
Very nice- staff very pleasant-- food we had was OK (pasta)- but would go back and try something else.
Good place to grab dinner before catching a show in the theater district. Steak and lobster tail were delicious. Service was quick and polite. Try one of their signature drinks.
Service was excellent and all the food was very tasty
Took my wife and niece to eat there because it was just across the street from the theatre showing Hamilton which we were attending later that night. Food and service was impeccable. Our server asked if we were attending the show so he would know to bring our food out fast enough in time for the performance. When we felt there was not enough shrimp on my niece's plate, our server brought our more shrimp with no extra charge. The atmosphere was classy and elegant, but didn't feel stuffy or stuck up. Upscale pricing but we knew that coming in. The way the food tasted, I would have paid double.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. So handy to theatre. Loved it.
Friendly, attentive staff. Menu explained; questions answered. Everyone in party enjoyed their food as ordered.
Anniversary dinner before play. No problem getting a table and were able to sit outside. Table was small for all the plates. Bread came a little late. Drinks were very good. Steaks were excellent. Brussel sprouts were two sizes; the larger ones were a bit under cooked. The price was a bit high but as expected for downtown Chicago. Good place to eat, especially close to the theatre’s.
We had a wonderful meal at The Grillroom before Hamilton!
We had dinner and drinks pre Hamilton show. Our server made sure that everything arrived so we could eat and still make the show. The weather was pleasant so we sat outside the walked right across the street to the theater.
Server was great. We were going to a show after and he kept us on pace! Great job
Great place for lunch dining! Haven’t tried it for dinner, but I would think it is equally as great. Great food, service, atmosphere.
Great service and great food! Sat outside for dinner. Patio is really nice.
Good food for lunch, dinner and service is good. Also close to theaters
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.
The Grillroom is one of the best restaurants in Chicago! Consistent, flavorful and specials are wonderful! Whether steak, fish or chicken you can fulfill your desires for a fantastic meal!
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.
My husband and I went to the Grillroom after seeing a matinee' theater show. Our server was great, he was familiar with the current shows around town (even the ones not right across the street) and he was ready to recommend items from the menu that he preferred. We had the filet and lobster tail and it was great. We will absolutely go back.
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...
Very diverse menu. Great for lunch or before a show.
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.
Good selection onf lunch menu choices. Waiter was accommodating and all guests enjoyed their meals.
