I was here for breakfast while staying at the Hotel Burnham. My eggs were excellent and the jam served with the toast was delicious. On my second morning I opted for the oatmeal w/ pumpkin seeds, almonds and bananas and it was fantastic. The look and feel was great. Service was on point.

We knew better. It's a hotel restaurant in the touristy theater district. A lot of typical mistakes you'd expect. Food was just not good at all. Too salty, processed, and sometimes bland. Servers are inexperienced. The bartenders however are very knowledgeable and can make a great drink with what they have. But - they lack a lot of top shelf... More

We had a series of small plates and too much wine! Waiter (I am ashamed not to remember his name) did a terrific job with recommendations, esp. the wine, which we could taste before selecting a bottle. Unlike other patrons, we were not in a hurry to get to a show, and really enjoyed ourselves.

Nice street level restaraunt in the Hotel Burnham. We seldom appreciate the dining options in the loop within walking distance of the majority of the theatres. The restaraunt has a clean, sharp appearance. Our food was quite good, and the waitress stayed perfectly on top of the timing for the theatre. We will be back

I ate at the Atwood for a business lunch and was rather disapointed. The building is fantastic, the service was decent but the waiter didn't do much other than take the order and give us our check. The meal server and the busboy did all of the work. I ordered a bacon burger which was served with out any bacon.... More

My husband had the Bloody Mary which was SUPER just the right balance of spice. Coffee was good but a little weak. Orange juice for kids was served like a cocktail on the rocks and kids loved it. Kids menu failed to include breakfast options so we asked if they could allow them to have the chicken and waffles minus... More

This place is beautiful. I loved it before the updates but it's even nicer now which I found surprising considering how lovely it was before. I had the oatmeal with brown sugar, pumpkin seeds and bananas and it was a wonderful choice. My companions were just as pleased with their choices. Make time to go whether you live in Chicago...
