So a group of six of us migrated over to the Grillroom after Hamilton and it was initially crowded so the service was a bit slow (understandably)....But: We waited for the rush to end then grabbed a table in the bar area and service somehow for worse? We never really had a server, more of random people checking on us... More

This place was amazing, they knew we had tickets to see Hamilton and were able to get a group of 8 of us fed and out within hour, that's with appetizers, drinks and steaks! the service and food were fabulous, would recommend especially for anyone going to the theater across the street.

After a day at the aquarium and Field Museum, we wanted a good steak dinner in an upscale atmosphere. We almost didn't keep our reservation because of the weather - rainy, high winds and cold. Very glad we took a cab and came anyway. From the scallop appetizer to the steaks to the excellent desserts, the food was wonderful. Wait... More

Sat in bar, 65% empty, but took 10 minutes to get any other human to notice I was there. A wee bit unorganized. Could it be my cologne?!! Ordered onion soup, filet, and grilled. asparagus. Dinner rolls good. Overall food very good.worth a return trip.

Located from the Private Bank Theatre, the staff was great! The drink menu was designed to compliment the popular musical. It included a federalist wine list and specialty drinks including a Brandy Alexander Hamilton! The cheese board is a treat and the creme brûlée can't be beat.

This is a great place to grab dinner before going to the theatre right across the street. Food is very good and portions are large. Service is very good also and there is a nice bar area.

I have eaten here before and not been impressed, however, since my last visit to the restaurant it has improved. The prices remain high, two teenagers and one adult spent over $200 without drinks. Two of us ordered steak which was cooked perfectly. I have had better steaks elsewhere for a lower price, but the location is a factor in... More

Had a terrific pre-show dinner here last month. I did call ahead for reservations as we were a party of 7. We were quickly seated, and our waiter was very attentive of the fact that we had 7:30 PM show tickets. Our reservation was for 4:30 - we were unrushed and had cocktails, meal, and dessert easily in that time... More

This was one of the best meals I had in Chicago. When I got to the restaurant about 7 pm, it was packed with people whom I assumed were attending the play Hamilton directly across the street. The food was spectacular and came quickly despite the crowd. I had the Double Cut Filet and a massive baked potato. The steak... More

Upon entering softly lit restaurant, we were greeted by a friendly hostess who seated us in Timothy's section. He quickly came and provided warm breads and butter and took our cocktail order. Our first course of shrimp cocktail arrived fresh and well chilled. The second course clam chowder came warm and nicely seasoned. The other course of pear salad contained... More
