Had a reservation for 815 pm. Arrived on time and were only seated at almost 9 pm. What a joke.

Very delicious food! Cocktails were delicious as well. Only issue was our server took a very long time to get back to us with our check. He didn’t come to the table for about 30 mins after we had finished our food. He did thank us for our patience but it would’ve been nice if he noticed we were finished earlier. Otherwise, would definitely come back for a special occasion! Great atmosphere.

Food was delicious. Ordered meatballs as an appetizer and did not receive them until we were two bites away from finishing our whole meal. No apology and were also on the bill. When they did eventually come, they were delivered to the table next to us. On the bright side I walked out of the RR with a long string of TP on my shoe and a kind employee stepped on it to save me from a V embarrassing moment. Told the server we did not want dessert, but his head was in the clouds and brought us over dessert menus (I digress). Finally I thought the Rancic’s would be sharing a glass of her Prosecco with us and that did not happen. Regardless Id still like to stage a return at some point in the future. XOXO

This place is always consistent and superb for steak and Italian food. My group was very impressed. That group was several important business partners and we had an excellent meal with terrific service. The only sour note, I had asked for a booth in my reservation, and said it was a business dinner. We were not seated until ten minutes after our reservation time and then we were walked through the entire restaurant to a small, dark, square table at the very back, by a kitchen entrance door. That was so not cool, and I had to ask for another table. We had passed three empty booths on our long circuitous walk to this lonely back table. I eat here several times a year, and was disappointed that attention wasn’t paid to my request, and that I had to be in a position to ask for another table in front of my clients. Yes, this kind of stuff does make a difference to me, as you can tell.

We were recommended RPM by a colleague that lives in Chicago as a place we should eat for one of the two evenings we had in the area. It did not disappoint. At the bar we were served by David and Angela, who were both super friendly and attentive. We are still talking about how good it was and what a nice time we had, two days later. My husband had the tartar, which he loved, and we shared the garlic bread, which was a large portion. For entree we split the gnocchi and mushroom risotto, both of which tasted exactly like we've had in Italy; simple, flavorful, delicious. The cocktails, the food, the ambiance, the service, it was all great.

We had a wonderful meal. Our server was amazing and on point. However the kitchen was not. Our appetizer meatballs came out super COLD. they were sent back and very quickly we had new ones. It took 25 minutes between our appetizers and our salads. Way too long to be waiting. Our server kept checking on us and you could tell was getting very frustrated with the extremely slow kitchen service. Our dinners took awhile to come out too. They weren’t too busy. We had a 915 reservation and we didn’t leave until 11. It was just 2 of us. There were many open tables around us the longer we were there. I understand that it’s a great restaurant and there is a lot of hype about it, and we did like it. If you didn’t know the cuisine or read the menu you would have no idea that it’s an Italian restaurant. It was noises but not in a bad way. Our food was delicious. The fried olives were to die for!

First off, my sister and I always have a knack talent of having the worst service. We were pleasantly surprised to have the most amazing service by Noelle. We’re not huge spenders but Noelle made us feel like we were. She took excellent care and it just made sister weekend all the more special. The food was wonderful as usual and we left full and happy.

The Mama DePandi has changed and was not good. The noodles were much thinner and the sauce was awful. So disappointing because we usually enjoy the food.

Everyone working there looked miserable. All the shadow waitstaff with ear pieces were distracting and we wondered if they were being told not to smile through the ear piece. It used to be one of our favorite restaurants. So sad

We visited the restaurant for a 9:15 dinner reservation on 9/30. My husband ordered the squid ink pasta dish. Our complaint was that the server brought out a substituted dish rather than making us aware of the 86 and allowing my husband the opportunity to change his order.

I would have given RPM 5 stars except that booking a reservation with this restaurant means nothing to them! Our reservation was at 9:15 and we were not seated until 10pm. Many customers also had reservations and were left waiting. No explanation was provided by the hostess and they didn't really seem phased or apologetic for the extremely long wait beyond our reservation time slot. Food was very good and we liked the atmosphere, but what good is booking a reservation if the company doesn't follow it?
