Great a Happy Hour. Food is very good and friendly staff.
We made a reservation before a show at the Chicago Theatre. We grabbed a nice table in the sun by the window. We were greeted promptly by the friendly hostess and our waiter came quickly. He could have been friendlier but that is just personality. Draft beer was good. We each had the hamburger. Good food. Hefty prices...but you expect that downtown.
Very slow service, order came out incorrect. Terrible experience.
Had a great family meal with kids and grandkids. Will definitely be back!
We got seated right away with our reservation. Our waitress was amazing. Extremely attentive and was on point from the beginning to the end. We weren’t her only table, but she made us feel as if we were
Very good food. The 72 hr short rib steak was absolutely delicious. The polenta was glue-ey though. The mussels were very good, however, I think it was overkill on the garlic in the broth. We were given little flat plates to eat the mussels on, which are in a broth, so it was like eating soup on a plate. But overall, I enjoyed the meal.
Food awesome. Ambiance awesome. Service was weak for the price. Overpriced
We enjoyed our food with a friendly waiter
great convenient location for my friend’s birthday lunch
We ate before a concert at the Chicago Theater.
We really enjoyed the friendly staff, quick service and convenience to the theater district and trains.
Juan was very attentive and a great server. Overall positive experience. As a frequent “breakfast meeting guy”, I will be back.
Both our meals were over cooked. The pasta was dried out as if it was from night before. The snitzle was like leather. Plating was basic and haphazard.
Love coming here before seeing a concert at the Chicago theater!
Our server Aileen was great! Super sweet and gave us the right amount of attention. Food and drink were excellent and the ambiance was perfect!
Close to Chicago Theatre.
Great food and great service. Our server was right on top of things, even though she was very busy. We will definitely go there again on our next trip to Chicago.
Good spot centrally located for a lunch meeting. Food was great and variety on the menu. I wouldn't describe this as a 'must-eat' type place for Chicago but it was good for a hotel restaurant.
Took over 35 minutes for the kids dishes to come out.
Two of our 4 meals were frozen.
We did get the meal covered, but I won't be going back.
Waste of time and money
Went here for breakfast Sunday morning before a show at the Chicago Theater. Had our 4 and 7 year olds with us. Great service - all of the staff were very nice and good with the kids. Food was pretty good. I rated 4 stars because we did not get anything fancy - eggs, bacon, toast, etc. Would definitely go back.
Took the family out before a show. Had the roast Amish chicken and the presentation was ridiculous. “Mustard greens” was a Dijon mustard sauce on the bottom, a haphazard cut green pepper sautéed and mixed with mixed greens. Chicken was fair, but the rest of the plate was inedible. Service was quite slow, though finally picked up toward the end. This place is certainly resting on happy hour and a captive audience in the attached hotel.
Menu was a bit limited. Server was very good. Reservation was honored on time.
Food was great. Thought the portion of avocado was very small for the price.
Very nice place, good service and the food was quite good. It was a little pricey but we were out for a nice dinner in the city and enjoyed the experience.
Four of us had eggs Benedict. Great brunch where loved them. One suggestion... All the yolks were hard. If you prefer runny you might want to ask for it. The taste was great. I also suggest the ovicado toast.
Great place to grab a bite and we’ll crafted cocktails before seeing a show! I’ll be back.
Great location, close parking and near shopping and theaters. Great bartender. Menu varied enough to make a custom dining experience.
Absolutely perfect for a before theater dinner. Delicious food and drink. Make sure you leave room for dessert!!!! Wonderful staff. And great prices. Definitely will be back.
Perfect location for theatre district. Great brunch pre matinee!
Lovely place, good tunes, good food, good service!
Very attentive, funny and great server. We were in between menus so that was a little annoying. That was our fault though because of the time restrictions our small group had. Very nice place.
Lukewarm soup, over reasoned(too salty), dirty table ware, inattentive service
Dined here for breakfast. A good variety of options on the menu. Friendly service, tasty food, and good coffee.
We enjoy S&L as a go to for pre and post stops for shows at the Chicago Theatre. Every dish and drink has been great and the staff is awesome! It’s been on our regular rotation for at least 4 years and never disappoints.
Always an excellent choice.
We were going to a show at the Chicago Theater and they got us in and out with plenty of time. We all had the burger and it was delicious!
Great location good food server was forgettable
Better than average bar food in the loop. Nice atmosphere. Not too loud. Would return because prices were reasonable.
Great date night out in the city! Delicious food and drinks!
Nice place and convenient. The best service I have had in a long time. Pricey but it is downtown Chicago
