Our first time there. Service and food were exceptional. A nice spin on traditional American pub fare. Portion sizes were spot on. I abhor doggy bags of any sort. For a table of 3 we ordered 2 starters, the meatballs with polenta and the burrata on cruet. Both delicious!!! Two of us ordered the steak fries. Super good... pro tip order rare and cut a bite of steak fork that with fries then dip then eat all together!!! I ordered the short ribs.... what a delightful flavor combination and the chef delivered it himself!!!!
Drinks were good, food was good, service was fair. A little pricey for food and drinks.
The salmon caesar and chicken and waffles were delicious!
I really should not have rated this restaurant since it was CLOSED!!! It was explained to me by the hotel staff where State and Lake Chicago Tavern is located, that the restaurant was re-opening soon. They stated it was Open Table's fault for taking reservations. So be careful patrons, make sure the restaurant is actually opened before making a reservation on Open Table. Apparently Open Table can take reservations at closed restaurants!
We made our reservation through open table and the restaurant couldn’t find it and made us wait. I could tell someone was checked in under my reservation bc open table said “currently dining” but the waitress wouldn’t even check or apologize or anything. Then when we were sat outside by ourselves I waited 10 mins and had to go inside and ask for a waiter. We would have been fine waiting forever for food if we could just get some water…I had to send in another person from our party another 10 mins later just for water. I know places are short staffed but at least communicate and give us water.
Saw our server twice. Ordered a diet received a regular, never brought a diet after letting them know, omelet arrived cold. Overall very disappointing.
I took a friend out for her birthday and we enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The waiter was a nice guy and he was very attentive.
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.
The food here was like bad hotel food. I was there for a business meeting and wouldn't return.
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.
