I was excited to take a colleague from out of town for a meal Tavern on Rush. Previous experiences have been good, but we were both very disappointed. The steak special was expensive and over cooked and salty. I had a salad that had been good in past and it was not great. Bitter dressing and greens that weren't fresh. I understand middle of winter in Chicago is tough to get freshest produce but the price of this restaurants demands top quality, and we didn't get it. I will look elsewhere for a good meal in a part of Chicago that has many other options!

Food was excellent. Really enjoyed the flame roasted brussel sprout side dish along with a perfectly cooked steak. DJ, our server, was outstanding.

Food for the price was not worth it. Tuna came out looking like a pork loin, second time was raw as can be. Salad was ok.

Jerry was our waiter for the night at Tavern, and he was fantastic! Really made us feel welcomed and relaxed. In terms of the food, the steaks were incredible. Worth the trip!

Sat In the bar area. Waitress was not very detail oriented. Vodka soda with lemon came with a lime. Dirty martini not dirty. Ranch dressing for salad actually blue cheese. This only takes you to the first 15 min of service.

Volume of music was painfully loud and loud for no reason. They need a better pandora or Spotify channel.

Food was average and the only bright spot was the bus boys. I’ve been coming here for 20 years and this was my worst experience.

A little pricey but good. Seafood appetizer for 2 was good but NOT worth $70. Otherwise good. Had a birthday in our group which we sent previous notice and was never acknowledged. But good experience overall

The waiter spilled out bottle of wine across the table all over my new shirt. Not only did he not get me another napkin but he spilled half the bottle which was not compensated.

Food supberb. Our server was great! We put down it was our anniversary but no recognition. Kinda surprised. Knowing we could’ve went anywhere else to celebrate our night. And it would’ve been nice for even some thing sweet on the table. Especially for the price point. This definitely isn’t a bad review. But being a manager of a large restaurant we go the extra to appreciate the business.

Typical bar food but overall disappointing. We both got pasta dishes which came with no bread, no salad, or any side dishes at all for that matter. Good place for a drink or for that date you probably wont see again

We stayed at The Drake and decided to walk to dinner. We were worried about getting into Tavern on Rush since it was Friday night. To our surprise, the bar area had several open tables. The crowd was typical for a bar dinner - volume-wise. However they were all enjoying themselves and wasn’t a bother. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding! We will return every chance we can.

We live in the neighborhood and come here often, especially on a whim in the summer/fall with their great patio. We’ve also come every New Years for nearly a decade. While we still love this restaurant and it’s staff, our waiter seemed to be in a poor mood and less than attentive. Also, first time I’ve had a poor steak here. I’m sure next time will be better.

Incredible meal, classic Chicago steakhouse experience with all the right touches. Benny, the proprietor, treats you like family and Jason is top shelf waiter who makes sure the entire meal is fabulous experience.

My all time favorite restaurant. Whenever I am in Chicago this is a must have. Jason is the absolute best server and no one has ever taken care of me and my family better that Benny, the maitre d. They both our fantastic! And the food is great! The KC strip is always spot on. The Wagyu filet special was hit with my wife. And don’t forget the dessert! This place knows how to do dessert. I am a sucker for it and can never turn it down! It doesn’t matter which one you pick, all of them are great. Do yourself a favor and go!
