We checked into our hotel and we're ready for lunch. I got my phone out and looked for restaurants. This place had a great looking menu and good reviews. Seven of us walked in without a reservation for lunch and they were so polite about it. We waited no more than 10 minutes and were sat. The food was great,... More

This was the closest restaurant to our hotel and we were recommended it as it was family friendly. We found the prices to be comparable to any other sit down restaurant in the area. i.e. about $15 for a burger meal. We thought that was pretty affordable. They have a kids menu and plenty of seating, so any wait goes... More

A friend and I ate here for evening meal on a Monday. We had awesome trout and delicious vegetables. The service was over the top. The hostess seated us at the window so we could watch all the Michigan Ave traffic and shoppers. We had room for dessert- ate one there and took other one back to hotel. Had I... More

We arrived with a group of 38 just at 5:00 p.m. The staff made special effort to seat us all together and took excellent care of all of our needs. All with whom we came in contact were friendly and helpful. The food was delightful, with a huge number of choices. The desserts were spectacular as well!

My parents and I stopped here for lunch. We waited over 30 mins before they we were told their food selection was not available. The bread on their sandwiches was very cold, Supposedly the fresh table bread was not available because the bakers were behind, though if this is complimentary it really shouldn't ever get to where the bread comes...

Something like 100 staff on at every shift - VERY BUSY on a saturday late afternoon. I had hummus (EXCELLENT) and my partner had a monster piece of Godiva chocolate cheese case which he loved. We had very... More

We love this place. It feels quite fancy but the prices are very reasonable. The decor remind me of a Italian palazzo in the Renaissance. This has become our favorite restaurant in Chicago and we go there quite a lot. When we got our civil union and the our free upgrade to a marriage certificate we went there to celebrate.... More

The food was awesome, service was okay. There was a language barrier between us and our waiter that caused some issues with ordering and being charged for other items. They accommodated a large party with short notice.

First time here, we visited on Easter evening after seeing Aladdin. We had one of the best servers ever! I forgot his name but he was so personable as we talked a lot about our visit and life! He gave us a run down on the menu and took time to give us feedback on what was popular and his... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
