Brunch was good, service was very good. However I went craving their croque madame because it was the best brunch item I’ve ever had and I was so sad to see that they removed it from the menu! Please bring it back!

We had a phenomenal time at Willow room. I took two of my girlfriends here for dinner and our experience was absolutely lovely. Not only was our waiter attentive and friendly, but he was so thoughtful of our experience. Of the three of us (my two friends and I), I recommended the restaurant so there was a certain “pressure” to impress. The Willow Room staff did not disappoint. We were celebrating a birthday and they were so thoughtful of that - brought us a birthday dessert and drink and made the entire night so special. This was my 4th time visiting Willow Room and I will 100% be back again.

This is our go-to restaurant before Steppenwolf. They rotate dishes seasonally so I never get sick of the menu, and everything is delicious. I have never ordered a dish I didn’t love. The wine is also great, and on Tuesdays bottles are half off. Don’t forget to leave room for dessert!

We ordered the Burrata, steak tartare, autumn salad and then main meals were scallops and risotto and everything was incredible. We loved it all but both were obsessed with the risotto and scallops. It all has unique and strong flavors and it all went well together. We can’t wait to go back and get something new because it is al so good

Sat downstairs which was very Cozy. THeir seasonal old fashioned was phenomenal. That and the burrata appetizer were probably the highlights but the steak and scallops were tasty as well.

I had the steak, it was over cooked and tasted more like seafood than meat. Our server never checked in after we got our meal and someone else cleared our plates, and didn't mention anything about the fact that I barely touched my food.

The atmosphere was casual but sophisticated which started the evening just right. The steak was perfectly prepared for the party of five, which is pretty impressive considering we each had a different request and each plate came to the correct customer. Our server was very patient, as we got distracted with talking and not looking at our menus. It was a great choice for our short time visiting Chicago.

Wonderful Sunday brunch in which all seven of us each ordered a different item, and each of us was thrilled with our choice! We shared an order of the amazing, warm donuts - yummmm! Great service and outstanding food and coffee on a quiet Sunday morning. Thank you!

A charming place with a nice interior, artworks, and cool vibes. The service was great and our server made excellent recommendations. We got the risotto and the burger and everything was yummy! The bone marrow was a delicious and rich meal for a starter. I recommend this place for a lovely date night.

We picked Willow Room based on proximity to theater. Food was excellent, service pleasant and atmosphere welcoming. I would consider going there even if we were not going to the theater. It is 25 miles from my home.

Loved this little gem in Lincoln Park on Halsted. Super cute and fun vibe inside but laid back and nice at the same time. It's on the pricey side but well worth it! On a Thursday night, it was perfect for a leisurely girls dinner enjoying grilled octopus for an appetizer (yum!), steak for dinner (wow!) and then the most amazing s'mores dessert. My mouth is watering about it all just thinking about it!

We had the pea ravioli, lobster fettuccine, and scallops. They were all absolutely delicious. And the Burrata with apple butter was a great new combination. The grilled octopus was grilled to perfection with a little crunch where the sometimes fatty part is. Highly recommend!
