Amazing as always
Lovely outdoor patio. Attentive waitstaff. Excellent food.
The bone in rib-eye was amazing. So much better than the one I had at Chicago Cut the week before. All the food was top notch. Service could have been a bit more attentive, but good overall.
Love this place, the food is awesome!
RL is consistently excellent.
Took my mom out for an early dinner this past Thursday. Great experience overall from the warm greeting by the hostess to the great food. Joseph, our server, was phenomenal - he provided great wine and appetizer recommendations for us to start. The main courses - Dover Sole and Chilean Sea Bass were prepared perfectly along with our side of Asparagus. The outside ambiance along with the great food and phenomenal service made for a wonderful evening!
Lovely dinner. The food was very good and the waiter was very helpful and patient.

One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. Perfect outdoor dining experience with Covid protocols strictly adhered to
Absolutely loved everything about this place! Thank you for taking incredible care of us!
Not the same steak was tough and service terrible in the main dining room
Our waiter was phenomenal! I didn’t catch his name but his humor and great service will definitely bring me back! It’s our new fave spot! The food is phenomenal too!!!! Everything’s phenomenal!
Love love love RL! So quaint and cute and the food is always amazing! We try to go at least once a month. Can’t go wrong indoor or out! One of our favorites in the city!
The food and service is always great.
Great service and ambiance. Noisy with traffic near.
RL is beautiful and elegant, however the grilled salmon was blah. It had no seasoning, semi-cold, semi-raw and with bottled marinara sauce to add on top with “grilled” tomatoes. I say “grilled” because the cherry tomatoes served had been no where near a grill. Very disappointed.
We went during COVID and everything was amazing! We felt very safe and the food was so good!
Seems like the restaurant isn’t staffed to handle the re-opening and crowds yet
Enjoyed our experience at RL restaurant and definitely recommend this place to anyone
Never had a bad experience or bad food. One of my favorites restaurants in the entire city.
Every experience at RL is top notch.
Thought it inappropriate for the host to make an assumption that we hadn’t booked our reservation w high chairs for our children. We did, and this host (Michael) could have been a little more customer centric—and not jump to the assumption that his customers had made a mistake, when it fact the issue was on the restaurants side.
Perfect, and warm patio seating even on a cold day in Chicago.
We live this restaurant! Best burger and fries in Chicago. Bistro like atmosphere very cozy. Service is always excellent!
RL is always great and everyone there is extremely hospitable.
The food and drinks are always great.
Lovely atmosphere, yummy chicken Milanese, creamy potatoes AND coconut cake to die for!
We were celebrating my daughters 33rd birthday. We brought her 4 mo.old son and everyone working in the restaurant displayed professionalism, sincere kindness and superior service. RL is without question one of the top five restaurants in the city. The staff and the food are consistently outstanding.
Excellent as always.
As always, a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Thank you.
Birthday dinner was superb
