Great Place. Awesome food . Outstandig Service. As always
We had a business celebration at the restaurant. We told the wait staff that we wanted the chef to bring out his best meals. with a little guidance for preferences, we had the best meal in Chicago. It was busy but the service was unequaled. The food was high quality and the atmosphere was lively.
We always love this place for lunch (or dinner)! The food is good, staff attentive and ambiance lovely.
RL is always amazing!!! Great service, martinis, menu. We love it there!
One of my favorites! Old school ambiance and service but rivals today's new age restaurants.
Outstanding service, food and atmosphere. Perfect for special occasion or celebration.
Service and food were outstanding. The initial greeting was underwhelming. The greeter was preoccupied and not friendly.
The rest of the staff made up for her.
Love this place! So lush and decadent! Definitely a treat!
We love everything about this restaurant. It is an absolute must when we are in Chicago!
The Chicago Ralph Lauren Restaurant is so much better and far less pretentious and fake than the NY restaurant and the food is much better too. Skip NY and Paris and enjoy a wonderful experience in Chicago at the original RL Restaurant
Birthday dinner for a friend
The food at RL was very well prepared and very tasty. The temperature in the dining room was stiflingly hot. Very uncomfortable.
Service warm and efficient it at times over attentive. Superb atmosphere though a little compressed. Food was delicious with no complaints though my veal chop was slightly undercooked. Wine list unexciting and there is a dearth of whites. Feels good but not for the gourmand.
RL Bar is a lovely, elegant and appealing restaurant. One of the best spots in town!
Excellent ambiance, service, cuisine. And incredibly consistent year after year. A must. Feels like you are a member of a high class club in London
RL is an institution in Chicago - can’t go wrong always good
Just too noisy for a nice visit with a friend 's Birthday. Outside would have been OK except it was cold and rainy.
RL is a wonderful choice for an evening out in Chicago. It is a beautiful setting, modern but based in the best traditions of fine dining. The menu offers a nice range of plates all beautifully prepared. The service is attentive and gracious.
The restaurant overall was wonderful. The food was delicious, but the waiter talked too fast, hard to understand.
Service was impeccable! Food fantastic. Loved the Liver and Onions and the Crab Avocado salad.
Very accommodating and excellent service
Above and beyond. The entire team did an exceptional job. Lucas did an excellent job, along with the maitre'd, the server assistants, the GM and the hostesses. The room is stunning, the shellfish platter was incredible in both flavor and presentation. The arugula and pancetta was a perfect mid course. The bone in Prime Ribeye and the crab cake were a dream. Perfectly executed, elegant, gracious and genuine hospitality. I will be dining here during every visit to Chicago!
1st Anniversary , they did a great job!
Another meal that did not disappoint. This restaurant is on my list every time I am in Chicago.
Classic RL vibe. Feels like a Good food, good
Staff food ambience best in town..
My son oysters, beef tartare, filet & Tuna..the ambiance & service amazing (as always) and the company tremendous. Always a fabulous time at RL. A MUST in our City!!
Fantastic food and location!
Average food at exorbitant prices in a lovely room.
We love this place. Outstanding food all service. Very friendly. Place
My first time to RL for dinner (have been there many times for lunch).....the service was not great...not enough staff and staff was definitely the “B” team opposed to the lunch staff. Will absolutely return for lunch but not for dinner.
The food was amazing. A little disappointed that the baked brie was currently off the menu but food made up for it. Server was a bit busy but the manager made up for it by staying attentive as he seemed overwhelmed. Overall great night and good food this is always a stop for us when we stop in Chicago.
Love this restaurant and especially the bar area. The staff is amazing, Russell made our experience that much better and I just want to be a “regular” at this local spot, where everyone knows your name!
Met a girlfriend for lunch. Great ambiance and menu. The chopped veggie salad is incredible!
Much improved over three years ago. Kitchen paying better attention to important details.
I’m a fan I have been in this particular location several time before and I have been in every single one from Laris to the polo in New York City but to night at the RL Chicago was a very disappointing experience service was horrible timing was a disaster !!!
Are they losing their quality of level of service I don’t know
But is a fact today was a disaster!!!!
RL Chicago I will thing twice next time competition is hard I just a loyal customer but no need anymore!
We have been many times and always love the atmosphere, food and wonderful service. What was disappointing was our wait. We had a 7 PM reservation and arrived on time, we were not seated until 7:40 PM. It was frustrating since a table was being held for another party all during our wait, they were seated and then left within 5 minutes and we were told due to an emotional issue that happened in their party. We were the only guests waiting for a table with the bar full, not a great place to wait. Will we go back, absolutely.
A fantastic meal from start to finish. Service was impeccable from the hostess to the busboy to the waitress. The manager (I think) came to each table to thank them and check in - nice touch.
The food was divine. The lobster bisque soup gives restaurants in Maine a run for their money. The burger was buttery soft and perfectly cooked. My cocktails were excellent. The coconut cake to finish off the meal was excellent - perfectly made. The price was fair given the environment and quality of food and portion size. I can’t wait to return! HIGHLY recommend.
Great atmosphere, good food and great service. People are quite attentive to customers. We were there when it was not a full at all. It was a quiet night. A must stop when in Chicago.
