GREAT TO BE BACK AND SEE THE OLD STAFF STILL THERE. THE Pandemic has lost a year plus of our lives but is VERY reassuring to see the Ritz standards are still maintained. FREEDOM!!!!

The only problem was after calling the restaurant twice before our evening and talking to the manager on the floor that evening, we were told after the validation of our velvet parking it would only be around $15 for 1-3 hours. We left under 2 hours and it was $32.
The parking people are very set and would not even listen.
We have Spot Hero and would of gone with them for $16 across the street. But I trusted your establishment.

It was NYE and very busy and very festive, but we were not rushed and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Everything was cooked and presented perfectly. Kudos to the Chef and staff.

Yes, I know it’s the RC, but $25 for a basic eggs benedict is outrageous. Overall, a basic breakfast for 2 with omelet, 2 teas and a glass of OJ for $78.

The food was magnificent, but the service for a Wednesday night was very slow to start. Once our waiter finally did come by our table after waiting a good 10 minutes and having to ask who our waiter was, he finally stopped by our table to get our drink order. After that, everything was fine.

There were two men sitting on the other side of me and the manager, chef and wait staff took an enormous amount of time with them. On the other hand, I had to wait for my salad and found that they no longer featured the entree that I came there for. The two young me ordered hamburgers and fries but the chef came out several times to make sure that they were satisfied. I feel that there is some sexism going on and that single women diners are not given the same attention that these two men were given.

This was easily one of the best dinners I’ve had in my life. The filet Mignon was perfectly cooked and the tiramisu was the most delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is in Chicago.

The room was pleasant. The waiter was attentive but there were constantly dishes that needed to be removed to the point of discomfort and having to ask which shouldn’t be the case. The food was good but not a value for the pricing.... too many others at the same price point t with far superior food.

My recommendation ... if you happen to be there and. Looking for a meal that’s fine but if you have the time seek out another locale.

Was staying at the Ritz Carlton and decided to celebrate my son’s birthday there. They seated us like we were in an assembly line. Tables next to each other and within earshot. The restaurant wasn’t even fully booked. To add to this, the gentleman providing music that night was so loud. I could barely here the conversation of my children across the table. What I did hear was conversation to the table next to me. I had to endure young adults senseless griping over someone who wasn’t present the entire dinner. I asked to be moved. The servers seem unwilling to acknowledge my request at first. To make matters worst, the pats I ordered was too salty and didn’t look fresh. The pomodoro sauce seemed like it was taken out of a can. Too much for the linguine frutti di mare. At the end of the meal, nothing to greet my son a happy birthday. Never was it acknowledged when I booked I made mention the special occasion. I was completely disappointed by our dining experience. The Ritz Carlton is known for their service. The lack of attention to detail, the tentativeness of the staff made them look less polish than expected. I was eagerly anticipating our dinner to celebrate a momentous occasion and sadly I felt shortchanged. I’m afraid to come back and try the other dining establishments in the hotel next time around.
