Excellent food and service
Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. We will definitely go back.
Enjoyed my meal - Very nicely decorated for the holidays
Always good food and great atmosphere but what really makes the Tavern a must dining stop is the excellent service. The servers are pros and very friendly.
First time sitting upstairs, nice to have a street view. Food delicious as usual, and waiter was fantastic
Our waiter was not attentive and kind of rude. Because he was not serving us, another waiter stepped in and helped us. Our waiter did not belong to that level of establishment. Any McDonald server would be better than him. I still gave him a good tip since it was a holiday. He even took our bread basket away without asking us. He kind of ruined our holiday dinner.
Outstanding service and amazing food
Steak &Dover Sole were great. Wonderful Place
We had a reservation for Thanksgiving - Party for two at 2:15. They were quoting a one-hour wait when we arrived a few minutes before 2:15. There was no place to wait, except a very crowded entrance and bar. Two very young hostesses were obviously overwhelmed . Where were the adult managers? We asked if they could call our cell phone when our table was ready so we could wait nearby. They took our number, and never called. This established restaurant should be able to do better.
Wonderful thanksgiving dinner. This place was packed for the holidays. Expect to wait even with reservations on special days
We arrived for reservation and was told it would be a 45 minute wait as they were behind. Said we could eat in bar which we gladly accepted. Long wait for server and then drinks. However, it was not our server’s fault that restaurant was understaffed. Kitchen forgot cranberry sauce. Long wait for bread. He was a charming young man who took very good care of us and went out of his way to make sure we were happy.
I believe his name was Julius. We enjoyed him very much!
We were so pleased with everything about eating here at thanksgiving! Had to wait even with a reservation but how do you tell people to leave in a holiday?! Food was great and service was wonderful! Would highly recommend!!
We chose Tavern on Rush for Thanksgiving Dinner. What a delight! Many generations enjoying each other and the excellent food. Amazing how efficient the wait staff were with a full house, rotating regularly. I would do it again!
This was a Thanksgiving dinner. Huge crowd, very busy,,lots of children (well behaved), but fantastic service and meal in spite of the pressure and the crowd.
Great location. Ate outside in past and loved it. Ate inside this time and were disappointed. Very slow. Food was average. For a medium burger, very dry with no condiments. Once food arrived, staff never came back again until the check. Never came back for refills.
We had the best server Jason, the food was very good.
Took a bunch of friends visiting from out of town, everyone loved their food and wine, the waiter was fantastic... It's not cheap, but for a special night out, I definitely recommend.
The food was fantastic. The service was excellent. One of the better steaks I have ever had. The only reason I can’t give 5 stars would be the price. I’m sure everyone would like to have a $60 steak for $12 but that’s not the case here for sure. I would definitely go back again.
Service was fantastic and most of the food was fantastic. However, 3 fish dishes were way overlooked to the point of being dry. The staff made everting right but it wasn’t the usual awesome experience.
I had a very nice meal with my family. Excellent food and great, attentive service.
Outstanding and comprehensive brunch menu. Will definitely return.
It was great thank you!
We love tavern on rush. Everything is always great, from the service, to the food to the overall ambiance. It's our go to restaurant for all occasions.... The best!
Great meal service was amazing. Our server was great. Thank you!
Went with two other persons. Service was good (not great I order a second glass of the Shiraz and it didn't come until I was almost finished), ambiance was good, overall for the group the food was good. Very over priced. (But then most things in Chicago are).
We all ordered fillet. I made the mistake of ordering the bone on fillet after the great sales pitch by the waiter (which is twice the price of the non bone on filet). My friends fillets came cooked perfectly. Mine was not. in fact it was rare. I had ordered medium. While my friends ate I waited for mine to come back. Still wasn't cooked right but I ate it any way. It really wasn't anything special just a lesson in frustration.
The waiter explained that it was because it was bone on so it was harder to cook. It is unfortunate for steak house to promote a steak and then not know how to actually cook it properly.
My advise is don't get sucked into ordering the bone on fillet.
Overall I would recommend this restaurant, but wouldn't make the same mistake again.
Always good food and service - one of our favorites
We had 6 people. 3 fillets all were undercooked. The med well were taken back and cooked longer - but it was chewy. Lobster bisque was the soup of the day but it was mediocre. The bisque has little lobster in it.
Server was excellent and took great care of us.
I love bringing out-of-town guests to Tavern on Rush. The service is amazing- the servers are always so friendly and attentive. The hosts are friendly and find you at the bar when your table is ready. The servers are friendly and engaging.
Also, the food is great! Highly recommended.
Stephen was our server we were celebrating my daughter’s 30th birthday and I had two other young adults with me and my 2 1/2-year-old granddaughter and Steven was outstanding attentive and fun and it was the best experience!
GREAT LUNCH GENEROUS SEAFOOD TOWER, OUTSTANDING SERVER.
Great food and atmosphere!
We had a delightful dinner at Tavern on Rush, which was within walking distance of our hotel. They quickly delivered a tasty bread basket to our table as soon as we were seated. The waiter, Steve, was very attentive and answered all of our questions. We started out with two side Caesar salads which were included with our entrees for a small upcharge from the regular dinner salad. My husband had a small filet and a side order of chipotle mac and cheese. The filet was tender and cooked to a perfect medium, and the mac and cheese was awesome as well. I had the chicken caprese, which was parmesan crusted and served with argula, tomato and fresh mozzarella. All of the food was delicious and served at the proper temperature ... there is nothing worse than lukewarm food that has been waiting to be delivered to your table. Portion sizes are generous ... we took home the leftover chicken and mac and cheese Would highly recommend ... the food, service and ambiance are all outstanding.
