Great culinary experience
Staff was so incredibly genuine and kind - it was clear that character is a part of what RPM considers in their team. Incredible food that was made better by the amazing service.
We’ve been coming to town the last five years for the Marathon and each year we choose somewhere different to celebrate this spectacular occasion. We were finally able to make it in after all these trips and it did not disappoint. From the service to the ambiance to the food- wow!! We will most definitely return!!
The staff was robotic and aloof. Not warm or welcoming. No greeting when checking in with host stand. Just started at and then shown table. Sloooow service. When food was brought to table, or we asked a question we couldn’t hear responses. For the record, we mid 30s without hearing problems. The music was just too loud. Food was ok. Nothing I would return for with the service received.
Amazing food! The atmosphere was great! A must visit while in Chicago.
Great food. Great service. Lovely atmosphere. Music at time a bit too loud
Excelente experiencia. Restaurante acogedor. Buena comida. Servicio rápido y amable. Muy recomendable
Went with my mom. Had a great time! Looks like a fancy restaurant and it is, but is welcoming to all customers. We were dressed in casual wear and were treated like royalty. Thanks for the great experience.
Ambiance was phenomenal . The food delicious, well presented and very tasty .
The waiter was very nice and did not rush us out .
It was my birthday dinner so I got a free dessert with a candle .
The service was excellent. Food was very good. I would highly recommend it.
Wonderful meal as always! This place is beautiful and the food is delish!
Overall fantastic. I have been here twice and tried a large portion of the menu. Everything is delicious. Even items that I do not typically care for, such as meatballs, are delicious at RPM. Best Italian food in Chicago.
Great vibe. Wonderful fresh made pasta. Would definitely return again!
Outstanding from the moment we walked in, food was exceptional!!
The atmosphere was classic, the personel were friendly and professional and the food was delicious.
Fabulous... one of our favorite nights on our trip! Food was amazing
Delicious dinner, very beautiful restaurant, a little attitude from the hostess
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
Our server was wonderful and provided a great dining experience for us.
Great meal! Wonderful sommelier- helped us pick a delicious Italian wine. Gulianna’s salad, the octopus & gelatos all my favorite.
RPM is always fantastic, we never come to Chicago without dining there. The eggplant parmesan is the best I've ever had.
A bit pricey for smaller dishes but overall pleased with the food. Felt a bit rushed by the bussers/food runners as they kept coming up trying to clear plates while we were still working on the appetizers while talking. Might have been trying to turn the table for a busy Thursday night but overal, would recommend and visit again.
Excellent food and service! Fine dining experience!
Amazing food with great service in a lovely atmosphere! The homemade pasta and sauces are wonderful. Love the truffle garlic bread appetizer and the prosciutto tortolini! The bombolini dessert is out of this world good!
Fantastic food and service. Highly recommend
Best Chicago dining experience ever! So, so good - can't wait to go back!
Great! Would come back again !
Service was fun and prompt. Food was excellent.
Jason, the manager, provided exemplary hospitality during my dining experience. It was an absolutely delicious dinner and great wine! I hope to be back soon- maybe tonight!
Bad Service, tasteless food, a waste of money
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.
Really slow service and food not warm
Awesome dinner celebrating our 30TH anniversary! Great service and great food!
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!
From the beautiful decor, to the impeccable service, to the delicious food, dining at RPM Italian was a wonderful experience.
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.
