The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
Wonderful as always
Everything was great!
Food not as good as we recall on previous visits
Excellent dining experience. The wine and all food selections were very tasty.
This was our 2nd visit. We happened to go during restaurant week. Great menu. My husband had chicken parmesan, I had a duck stuffed pasta with a truffle sauce. It was fabulous. We were more than happy with our dinners and service. We will be back again
Amazing food! I live in Los Angeles and go to Chicago every month for Business. This is the only restaurant that I eat at! Simply amazing!
It was perfect! Great service and superb food!
Excellent service and overall dining experience. Everything was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert. Can’t wait to visit again!
30th birthday dinner with my husband and it was perfect from service to food
The pasta is amazing! We shared the Potato Gnocchi and the
Ambiance was wonderful, and service was great. Food was a bit lacking: Several dishes were unflavorful, and the lobster ravioli was uncooked (super hard ravioli edges). A few simple adjustments — mainly basic seasoning and minor cooking technique changes — will make this restaurant superb.
Always a great experience. Love the Carbonara pasta dish and the pistachio gelato.
I had high hopes, and have been wanting to go to RPM for a long time. Much to my delight the food was amazing and the gluten free options were aplenty. I actually wanted to ask and make sure things were gluten free several times because they were so good. Service was fine, not too much not too little. The vibe was horrible, loud and you felt belittled from the minute you walked in the door. We dined on a Sunday night and it felt like a night club with flashing lights in one corner and clubs music playing. You've heard the drapes don't match the carpet? That's how I felt with the food and the ambiance. Italian food and club chic don't mix in my opinion. Sadly, the food alone isn't enough to get a return visit from us, had we felt welcomed and appreciated that might pull us back.
The food recommendations for portion size were good. This is my second time eating here and I enjoyed the booth seating. It was relatively quiet throughout the meal, even when it got busier. The dessert was fantastic.
It just simply AMAZING! Less noise would be ideal but the food and service just GREAT!
RPM Italian was a first for 5 of our party of 7. Our favorite dishes were the Fritto Misto, Carbonara, and Spaghetti and Meatballs. There was a nice selection of wines and the seating was comfortable. The restaurant is quite noisy, but did not bother our group. I think just one area of improvement was our waiter. I often found her talking to or at us, but looking around the room or at another waiter at another table. Just some interested and sustained eye contact can go far.
RPM is always a go-to for special occasions or out of town guests. Our server DRE was awesome - ask for him if you can. Delicious food and fun vibes - something for everyone.
The service was horrible! It took 10 minutes to get get seated and the restaurant was half empty at 5. We had a reservation. The salad came out before the appetizer or cocktails. It took almost a half hour before our entrees, pasta was served. Ridiculous!!!! She blamed the poor service on the fact that the restaurant was so busy. Really lame. We will never go back!
Our waiter Bob was excellent & the wine was on point!
Also loved the meatball
Amazing food and amazing service. Will definitely come back.
Fantastic service!!! The PERFECT amount of attentiveness (some places serve you like they are going off a checklist...brings out food, comes back in 30 seconds and asks how it was...ummm...just placed it in my mouth!). Food was great as well. Wish I had more room in my stomach!! I'm a sucker for homemade pasta & it didn't disappoint. Focaccia with prosciutto was warm, soft and 100% comfort food. Dessert...ahhhh...before the dessert menu came out, I said I would order creme brulee or tiramisu if available & low and behold creme brulee tiramisu was an option...creme brulee tiramisu!!!! BAM! Yum!!!
Incredible food!! Easily my favorite restaurant in Chicago!
It seems that RPM saves their worst tables for open table users.
RPM is always a hit! Feels like coming home again and never disappoints!
Our server was excellent. She knew the menu, made excellent wine and food pairing recommendations.
I can’t wait to try the RPM Seafood location.
RPM is superlative in every way. We are regulars there because they never disappoint, especially when it comes to their wait staff and the delicious food. We often take friends and business colleagues from out of town their to introduce them to one of the best restaurants in Chicago, consistently. It is a glorious experience.
Very nice experience - fantastic service, nice menu, good food.
Great food, great staff, great ambiance!
I was so looking forward to dining at RPM Italian as I heard so many good things. I have to say I’m so disappointed in my dining experience. First of all we ordered the wild mushroom risotto. There were no mushrooms in the dish and it tasted like pastina with truffle oil. I could have done better. The second dish was Mediterranean Branzino. It was overcooked, dry and tasteless. Sadly to say I would pass on this restaurant
Pasta dishes, prawns and brussel sprouts were all amazing. Very good service and very accommodating and knowledgeable with allergy restrictions. Definitely recommend RPM Italian.
Great service. The food was delicious. Specially, the homemade pasta and the Bomboloni.
Loved it. From the table to the service to the food. Very impressed
I love RPM! It’s a go-to spot whenever I’m in town and want great food! The crab cake bruschetta, prosciutto service and meatballs are consistent favorites. For dinner I love the lobster ravioli and squid ink pasta dishes.
Husbands birthday. Bobby was a fabulous server. We thoroughly enjoyed. Food and service was perfect. Thank you!!
Great food and ambiance. Delicious food and moderate price point.
Dinner with my neice
We sat at the bar.
Glen & Benjamin took great care of the 3 of us.
The food and service was excellent. I did not give it 5 stars for food as I save that for Stellar experiences (think French Laundry). All our dishes were right on. Caesar Salad, garlic bread, carpaccio were great. The Carpaccio was a stand out as one of the best we’ve ever had. Truffle risotto, gnocchi and short rib bolognese were all wonderful. Freshly shaved black truffle at the table on the risotto was a nice touch (that night’s special). Desert was super tasty but we were all stuffed beyond capacity at that point. Nice job RPM, a really nice experience. Thanks for bringing out a nice gelato desert for my wife on her birthday.
Dinner was outstanding!
Excellent service excellent food absolutely outstanding got us in right away with our reservation we were even a little early very clean restaurant everyone so polite and helpful beautiful menu beautiful presentation
