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.

Hosted a business dinner. Tavern on Rush added a personal experience by creating personalized menus. Service and food were great as well.

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!

Fantastic food but expensive (i.e., you get what you pay for). The service was outstanding. We will return but need to save up first.

Food was delicious! But for the expensive cost, the environment was poor. People dining in shorts and hoodies and baseball hats and giant TV’s on in he dining room upstairs during a $800 meal (for 6 people).

Tables pushed too close together And way too noisy. When you spend that that kind of money for a meal, it would be nice to be able to have a little calmer and quiet atmosphere.
