Experience, food and staff were all amazing. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
Everything was delicious. I just have a pet peeve about having to order side dishes separately from the protein.
Always a pleasure being at RL. Everyone is amazing.
Atmosphere even amidst pandemic beautiful and serene -
Food always fantastic
Staff over the moon with friendliness and attentive service
Celebrated a birthday and RL did not disappoint. The Dover sole was amazing!!

An amazing place during great even at the pandemic times
Great dinner...outdoor dining was very well executed!
Will definitely go back!
Great food, great service... expected nothing less!
Wonderful as always. So much appreciation for the staff.
RL is becoming our group's birthday "go to" restaurant. The food is always worth the trip and the perch is hands down THE BEST anywhere. Once we know we're going to RL, our mouths start watering for their coconut cake and we talk about it for days. Totally unrelated to the food - got a chuckle out of the blue & white striped Ralph Lauren designed face masks the staff wears...so classic. They should sell them!
We go to this place all the time and we love it! It’s a shame that with time limit of 90 min - they already started reminding us 55 min in. We were asked to leave at 80 minutes with drinks still in hand...
Amazing meal from start to
Ralph Lauren in Chicago is MAGICAL!!! we sat outside due to Covid-19 restrictions. The weather in Chicago was incredible so it was really special. The food is outstanding, the service was incredible. We will be back!!!!!
Always great vibe and people watching.
Always tentative & well-meaning service. Met the manager who is lovely.
Excellent food as usual. Everything well executed and the staff went out of their way to keep us comfortable despite it being a cold day to sit outside. They had a number of heaters which made things manageable. all in all another great experience.
The salad is so fresh and you can tell nothing is coming out of a jar it's from scratch even from the salad dressing.
Dined outdoors on a chilly afternoon. Food and service were outstanding.
The heaters need to be spaced better. It was freezing at our table, while the folks at the table closest to the heater were able to loosen their outer wear.
I can’t say enough great things about this place. Delicious food, service was impeccable. We had the most amazing table in the bar right by fireplace. Was romantic and so fun. Bartender was terrific! Will come back again and again!
Food was not hot
French fries were terrible- used to be the best in town!
Servers always great
Always a good experience, waiter was wonderful.
Great service and food. An unpretentious menu of favorites that are prepared and staged perfectly.
Food was delicious and Al, who took care of us, was great. Love to come here.
Special birthday dinner. Our waiter was a bit snooty. Menu selections not what I remembered. Love this restaurant though- the decor is so beautiful.
We had a lit experience. Maybe add a limited brunch offering.
The vibe was good. The food was excellent.
Anniversary brunch sand everything about our visit was perfect. Food, service, setting could not have been better.
RL is a must do when visiting Chicago, and we never miss.
RL is an amazing restaurant. The food, staff, service and ambiance are A+++.
Even during the COVID era—RL’s somehow manages to maintain its one of a kind ambience and classy service.
Thanks for a great meal and a great time. We will be back.
My go-to place for lunch when in Chicago. Need to try the one in NYC when I get back there.
I had the red snapper blackened it was my first time trying red snapper it was cooked to perfection ,the spinach was sauteed just right, the salad was so fresh, the juice in the Mai Tai was refreshing and the brownie was so moist this is how food suppose to be cooked.
Lobster rolls brought back fond memories of Maine.
We heard that this place was a great brunch spot, but when we arrived they do not have any breakfast items. They were accommodating and offered a create your own omelette and a few other options, but I think we really missed the good brunch experience by not ordering something from the main menu.
Our waiter was the best, forget his name...but he was just the best!
