RL is an awesome restaurant with great ambiance and terrific food. The Lake Perch is the best in Illinois. Whenever we're in the area we love to dine at RL.
Unbelievably rude waiter that drops food on your table without so much an an enjoy. Burger that was send back two times for being undercooked by at least two levels. Bad bad bad.
From Jesus, the valet parking guy, to Camille the hostes, Aramis our server, Angel at the bar (who is just the nicest guy you’ll ever meet) to Misael, the busboy, all provide a high quality, professional service. Polite, funny, attentive and professional. He food is really good; nothing extremely fancy, but well made, good quality food. The Old Fashioned is one of the best I’ve had (none of that muddled fruit awful thing). I highly recommend this place.
We love this place Always friendly with good food and service. Elegant environment too
The bagpipes for St Pats were unexpected and a lot of fun!
Great spot in the city. French martini are really great. Food is very good
Always good, always consistent! One of my neighborhood favorites!
A very friendly staff on a busy Saturday afternoon. A bit overpriced for a burger with average fries. Just wish when I ordered “Medium Well,” it had not been overdone and dry.
Great martinis, best burger in town (and yes, that’s a fabulous combination). Staff is friendly and attentive. Top shelf.
Always a great time when we eat at RL. Wait staff is great and food is always good.
As usual the food was delicious but the service was poor - very surprising as I usually have great service. Two menu items were not available for a 7:00 reservation.
Very relaxed environment even though the restaurant was packed. Delicious food, fabulous ambiance- so Chicago!
Great atmosphere, great service, tables nicely spaced. One of our favorite places to have a date night in Chicago. Great drinks and nice, fairly priced wine list.
Always a treat - polished glasses and silverware-excellent service a consistently reliable excellent food
Ordered the lobster bisque soup. It was cold. I sent it back. It came back Luke warm.
Service was ok. They barely checked in on us. I likely would not go back.
Food was terrible. Dressing on house salad tasted like straight vinegar. Cauliflower soup was over salted. Crab cake was ok. Made reservation but despite being empty was sat next to kitchen door. I’ve been here several times and the quality has dropped off significantly.
Always fabulous, always consistent great service and great food.
Great service. Food was amazing. Disappointed that they were out of the Diver Sole. Hope I get to try it on my next trip. Would definitely recommend.
Never disappointed- great food and great service!
Best lunch spot in Chicago.
Wonderful place with excellent food and service. Very elegant and friendly
I had gold coast Benedict. Little bit overcooked.
This place was ah-mazing! After a long girls weekend, this was the perfect place to wrap it up and tie it with a bow!! Everything was delicious from the coffee to the mimosas to the crab cake Benedict and French toast. Can’t go wrong here!
True blue. Consistent.
Love love love
The atmosphere was lovely and the shrimp cocktail was delicious, however my soup was a tad on the cold side and the service felt rushed.
Love everything about RL. The buzz, food and ambiance!
Always best in dining and always perfect service.
RL is very consistent. Service is always great as is the food. The staff always makes you feel welcome. If you can’t get a seat by the fireplace in the bar, it makes for a nice respite during cold weather.
First time to RL. Ambiance was warm and inviting. The table set ups were tight, I would not want to go if they were full, the back of my chair was touching chairs from 2 other tables. Service was perfection from the Hostess, Maitre D', server to the bus attendant to the back waiter. Menu is not exciting, reminded me of a high end country/city club menu. Everything was prepared simply with fresh high quality ingredients which were beautifully presented on the plate. All meat temperatures were prefect. Pricing is quite aggressive, but that is expected on Michigan Avenue.
Excellent Dover sole! Our server Natalia gave us great service.
It is always a great day if you are in RL. The good and atmosphere are wonderful The service is outstanding. It is a lovely place.
Seated right by the kitchen door. Ugh
Very busy very crowded but always good food
Great food and wonderful service
Favorite Restaurant! Absolutely the best. Food, service, ambiance.
Christine made for a memorable meal! She's one of your best servers (and they're all great)!
I had a reservation at 1. They made us wait 20 minutes. There was no place to stand where you weren't in the way. The place was over crowded and our meal felt rushed.
We went for my wife’s birthday and even mentioned it in the reservation and the restaurant did not have a clue...
I had the carpaccio with potatoes and argula. The potatoes amounted to 10 pieces (half inch dice). Granted, it was a starter and I had it along with roasted brussel sprouts. Everything was delicious; however I wish I had ordered a side of pommes frites! The value wasn’t there.
