We understand that there is a labor shortage, but service was truly underwhelming for the caliber of this restaurant. We go often and were disappointed. We will be back because we love the food and the wonderful location. Hoping the service can get back to what it used to be.
Went for brunch, everything was delicious and the service was amazing. Everyone in my party was extremely satisfied. We went for a birthday and were given dessert and a small celebration. It was great.
Had a high top table close to the open window wall. There was a continuing annoyance--a pigeon or two crawling around under our table or flying around!!! Staff said it happens "all the time" and were trying to shoo them away with serving trays! I have been going to Tavern since it opened--sat outside, inside in first floor bar area (where we were last night) and upstairs. NEVER experienced this distraction in any previous visits
Gorgeous night, dining al fresco. Lots of fresh air. Great service, solid food. We split the tomahawk ribeye. Fantastic!
We had a great table outside. Our server was great and the food was wonderful.
Great service, food is always great, outdoor experience superb
Tavern on Rush is one of Chicago’s best experiences for food, service and ambiance. So fun!
Always a great meal and amazing service!
Food was cold and overcooked, waiter was patronizing when I complained. I’ve been here before and enjoyed it, but not this time.
Remarkable waitress, excellent food!
All very good
Great outside dining experience.
Without a doubt excellent.
We got sick off the salad. We sent it back after a few bites because the lettuce did not taste right. Very disappointed!
I came with high expectations. The food was okay and not more then that. The stake qa good. The place is dirty and the service was not attentive. Will not recommend .
Great food and service
Extremely slow service and was not impressed at how a few things were handled. Would not go back if it weren’t for the location.
Amazing as always!
It was so noisy outside and tables so close it wa very hard to talk. When I reserve they say you cannot request outside. Then when we get there they say we should have asked for outside. A wonderful young lady Tamara found us a table, remembered we needed a band aid. She was over the top helpful.
FAV RESTAURANT IN CHICAGO!!!!
Great food, great service, best steaks in Chicago! We order off the menu all the time and its a never a problem.
It was a little dark in there, but the food and service was amazing!
Great dinner on the patio at Tavern on Rush. Great crowd on a Monday night!
We were able to enjoy the outside table setting on a beautiful Chicago early fall day. Jesse was our waiter and did a fantastic job. He was professional, pleasant,and a joy to get to know.
We had the lobster roll with french fries and the whitefish lunch entrée. Both were fantastic I would highly recommend them.
We look forward to enjoying future lunch or dinner.
The bees were bad while we were eating dinner and the customer was extremely allergic.
All other aspects of the dinner were very enjoyable.
I wish I could remember our server's name as she was OUTSTANDING. It was a very busy Sunday afternoon and she worked SO HARD to keep all her guests well taken care of...not just our table but the surrounding tables. We needed to get a table switch, mid-meal, as there were a lot of bees around our specific table (which was outside). She handled it like a pro and was beyond gracious and professional. A true example of a great employee. The brunch menu is excellent and the food came out hot and delicious. I highly recommend.
Waited 30 -45 mins before we could order appetizers. Even that we had to ask who our waiter was because no one showed up after we were seated by the host. The waiter was nice, but very loud. Kept screaming like we were at a ball park. Appetizers are small and very pricy. So is the meal. Overall ok experience, nothing memorable other than the loud server and food being over priced.
It was a great way for us to spoil ourselves on a fancy date night. The food was excellent, the service was great!
Outstanding as always.
Great lamb chops!
Great outdoor seating and outstanding service. The food was very good, but not outstanding.
The food is always outstanding and service great. Wait time is short , food temperature is excellent!
A great afternoon enjoying fresh air and sunshine along with a bottle of wine and food. The lobster bisque was awesome!
The service to start wasn’t great - we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside and once we decided told us we couldn’t choose. But once we sat down everything was great! Pasta dishes were incredible!!
Jacob was a great server. We tried the mussels appetizer which was delicious as was the tomato soup. On the menu we miss the ribs and the jambalaya - please bring them back!
Food was mediocre Calamari was very tough.Sam the waiter was excellent!!
Everything’s good 😊. That’s why we’re here almost everyday.
The staff was very attentive and accommodating. They allowed us to select the best seat in the room. It was a fabulous experience. I recommend it to anyone who visits Chicago and enjoy fine cuisine and service.
This has always been one of our favorites when visiting Chicago. Appreciated the outdoor dining but it was very crowded & loud.
