This is our favorite restaurant in Chicago! Benny the Maitre D and Jason our server have taken great care of us for years. From the moment we walk in we feel like family. As I have always said, the food is spectacular and is only outdone by the service. This time was no different. Dry aged Bone in Kansas City Strip was spot on. The steaks I have there are better than all the other places I have been and I have visited all the well known places in Chicago. Jason was awesome again. Took care of everything and his recommendations are always great. I know it is sometimes tough to know whether you are being sold or if you are getting a good recommendation. With Jason it is always a great recommendation. Trust anything he says. Wine recommendation was superb! Next time you are there tell Benny and Jason hi from Tim!
The regular Mac and cheese was rather cold. But the steaks were on point. Heidi our server was awesome. Would definitely return.
Crowded bar area, but ambience was great and staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was great, would highly recommend this place.
Great food and service. Fun time.
Bustling sidewalk scene, but a quiet upstairs space that worked well for conversation over lunch.
The bartender was horrible today. He could not produce their signature cocktails and made us the worse espresso martini that I have ever had there. We have eaten at the Tavern for years and we had a bad experience. The first set of drinks were two different colors but my husband and I ordered the same thing. Our waiter shouldn’t have brought those to our table.
Went here twice for brunch while we were in town. Really great food and fast service. We will be back!
Great good, great atmosphere, and great place to watch people... Secure a seat outside!
Based on the price, the value was not there. Probably will not go there again. It used to be one of my favorite go to places... no more.
the white truffle pasta was incredible!! we will be back...soon!
Sat outside, it was lovely and the service and food were both great!!
We used to leave in Chicago and enjoy this restaurant a lot. Cooking back was great!!!!
Arrived at 9:07 for a 9:30 res. Offered to have a drink at the bar if our table wasn’t ready. The non-smiling hostess said she’d page the Maiter De to see if our table was ready. We then stood for over 5 minutes in awkward silence, (and in the way of the servers going in and out of the outdoor dining area), while someone checked for our table. A manager, (older guy in a suit), came out and also stood in silence with no smile. The four of us just stood there. Finally, the hostess directed us to the top of the stairs and the Maiter De would get us to our table. We walked up the stairs and, again, were not greeted until we’d been standing waiting for a few minutes. Once at our table, we went through an entire glass of water before our waiter came. He apologized and said no one told him he had a new table. (Again, we knew we were a few minutes early. We offered to happily have a drink at the lively bar. They told us to just wait. So we did). Once drinks and bread came, the dinner was lovely and delicious, but dining out should be lovely from beginning to end. If I wanted to feel invisible, I would’ve stayed home.
Service was very attentive. Food was amazing. Highly recommend the filet sliders and steak sandwich.
Took my parents here last night since I’ve always had a great experience here. Our waiter, Q, was wonderful, very attentive, and played along with my parents jokes thankfully lol. Food was excellent as usual. Skirt steak, lobster roll, and pappardelle were delicious. Only sad thing is when the other wait staff took our plates to put into carry out containers he didn’t box my leftovers and instead boxed something we didn’t want. Didn’t realize until I got home and was putting everything into a different container. Really wanted my leftovers! Oh well. Next time I’ll remember to check or ask to do it myself.
Very good experience. Repeat customer..... Consistent product
Food and service were both excellent. The carrot cake was awesome. Next time I’m ordering the 40 oz. Tomahawk Chop!
We ate in the bar area, the atmosphere was classy but laid back . Staff was very attentive. We had steak and pasta, both were amazing.
Our server when questioned, politely about a menu that was given to use. She decided she no longer wanted to wait on our table, cried to her manager, who then switched our server out to another without ever touching base with us. When approached the manager about the situation it was quickly turned around on us. The situation escalated with the manager, we chose to leave, went to Gibson’s across the street, had an amazing experience and don’t plan to and won’t step foot in The Tavern on Rush again.
Beyond excellent service! Our waitress was very attentive. Delicious food, great wine, fantastic ambiance. Loved the whole experience!
Food and service was great!

Excellent dining experience! The waiter was very knowledgeable and the food was to die for!
I love the Tavern on Rush because everything is done to perfection. Great table and the food was exemplary. Never a miss when dining here!
Staff was hospitable and attentive. Food was cooked to our tastes and was exceptional. Loved the atmosphere.
Dinner was great, however drinks in the bar after dinner was terrible . Had to call over girl everytime for drink order. I Met up with clients and was embarressed. Server then made me close my tab at 8pm why? Then no one else came by... why? We left and went to gibsons
Staff and Management were excellent. So helpful!
Wonderful as always. Benny does a tremendous job. He’s great with the customers, perfect for his job!
Everything was spot on!! Atmosphere, food, and wait staff
Jason was an amazing server. Highly recommend this place.
My husbands 50th birthday dinner before a show. Our waiter was very engaging and funny. My brother and sister-in-law wanted to pay for the meal and the manager came and let us know personally. Great night.
Great service and delicious food!
Food was terrible. They did not have the usual complimentary bread choices, and the bread they did have was stale and terrible. We had corned beef and cabbage dinner since it was st Patrick’s day. Incredibly fatty and chewy, cabbage wasn’t cooked and potatoes were incredibly bland. Tavern on Rush has completely under-delivered and made mistakes on our orders the last 4 times we have been guests. Meats cooked incorrectly and entrees not being served as described.
was really good. Always a good place to eat. Will be eating here again
Excellent service from Q, he was on top of everything! Food is always delicious. Tavern on Rush is always on point.
Great food and service! This restaurant knows how it should be done. Even the bathrooms are sparkling clean. The food was excellent and lots of drinks to choose from!
Great food and service!
You can’t go wrong with this place. Great steak, wine list, and other options to choose from if you are feeling something different. I had the tuna avacado tartare and it’s bomb 👌
Great food and service
