Located adjacent to the Ralph Lauren Chicago flagship store on Michigan Avenue, RL Restaurant features the vision and décor of Ralph Lauren in a modern club atmosphere. Guests first enter the bar, where they can enjoy a selection of cocktails and light fare, at the bar or on aged leather banquettes by the cozy fireplace.

RL Restaurant offers classic American cuisine inspired by Ralph Lauren’s personal favorites. Seasonal dishes range from a chopped vegetable salad to a corned beef sandwich, dover sole and steaks. On the cocktail list, guests can choose from classic drinks and a diverse selection of wines and other fine spirits.

Please note reservations are for the dining room only. Bar and Patio are first-come, first-serve and utilized for waiting guests. We are an upscale establishment and require guests to dress for the occasion.

We now offer Brunch on Saturday and Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m.

Came here for lunch for my birthday. It was the perfect spot- 11am, downtown, on a sunny Winter day. I had the chopped salad, smoked salmon with dill cream w/caviar, the paperdelle vegetable pasta- magnificent For desser, the coconut cake- delish! Our sever was Jose Vazquez- excellent knowledge of wine pairings, the menu, and regular visits to the table to make sure I was enjoying the meal and the RL experience! I’d come back again and again. Highly recommended!

The steak was mouth watering good. Overall great food and even though i had a 9pm reservation and got there an hour early i was able to sit within 15 minutes so was thrilled about that. Valet parking was spot on and no long wait.

We were first time diners celebrating my daughters upcoming wedding The staff was great from start to finish. The food was superb and the ambience was what we expected for a full house on a Saturday evening. My daughter received a special dessert celebrating her visit and we thought this was the perfect dessert before we ended our visit.
Definitely will recommend to others as well as return again for our next special occasion.

Outstanding Food and Service, but very expensive! My wife had Dover Sole and I had the Skirt Steak. For us, both meals were the best we have ever had at ANY restaurant!

Valentine’s Day dinner. Our server was amazing and everyone was so accommodating. They have a server who takes care of you full and also another person who makes sure you’re always good on drinks. The atmosphere was amazing and it felt like everyone was in a good mood here! Would definitely go again.

We went for lunch on Valentine’s Day, Jesus was on top of it! Friendly, not over bearing, professional. Did not rush us, attentive just enough. Best clam chowder ever! The coconut cake was also to die for! Would certainly go back for a visit and eat there again.

I’ve lived in Naples, Fla for the past 30 years and originally from Chicago. First time I’ve been here at RL on my wife’s recommendation. Fabulous ambiance and service. Salads and apps were great and dinners were fabulous. I had the Dover Sole and Megan had the filet. My daughter who is 11 enjoyed herself as well.

Flavia and hostesses greet us in a friendly and warm way.
Aramis comes over to say hello the water snd coffee servers are always there friendly and attentive. And then Joseph The Great appears snd in his sophisticated and cultured way helps us have a wonderful dining experience. Flavia visits each table with a smile and ensures all is fine. Talk about a fun and elegant place.
That is why RL is the best place with best staff in town!
