Worth it for a special memory

We spent the afternoon waiting for our event to begin, and had a wonderful time. Service was excellent, the room elegant, and the food exceptional.

We travel the world and eat in top restaurants, but we short the Chicago area in part because I do so much cooking. We decided to try 16 (in the Trump Tower) with its two Michelin stars. Even at $160 per person for a five-course menu (with two choices for each course), it was a delight (and unlike our travels,... More

I have enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Christmas and Easter at Sixteen. I even enjoyed my 50th Birthday dinner here. The array at holiday brunches is heavenly. Opulent, fun, and very delicious! It doesn't matter what you're having, it's just better at Sixteen. These were special meals with special Guests that were memorable for all the right reasons. And yet, with... More

The service might have been a little slow. The late lunch menu might have been a little limited. WHO CARES! The view is magnificent. Looking out over the skyline of Chicago while waiting for your food is a pleasant experience. And the food is very good. No complaints here.

The ambience is very elegant and the restaurant was quiet, not very crowded. It was too rainy to see anything outside and we were not allowed to walk on the slippery terrace. Our young and earnest server was attentive and discreet, and was more of a curator of a culinary experience than a waiter. He explained the history of the... More

We had a daily breakfast credit as a package to our room. The food was really good, we enjoyed three mornings eating there. Also the windows and views are amazing, I enjoyed that when it was snowing!! The only negative is the price....if I didn't have my food credit we would not have eaten there as a bowl of cereal...

Well...you know the reputation, you know about the 2 M stars, so it should be great, right? Uh huh, well yeah, it is...awfully, awfully good. Not the first great restaurant we've been to, but it's really difficult to picture something that would be much better than 16. Okay, awesome decor, marvelous view, fabulous timing of multiple servers, world class cuisine.... More

Stopped by and went to the 16th floor bar named the 16th. Very nice and beautiful views. We also had the opportunity to use the Christmas elevator and all we could say is wow!!! The pictures are from inside the elevator. The people are also very nice.

Tasting menu only, they do not offer ala carte, AND, at least for lunch, everyone had to order the same number of courses. This does not work well. Would probably not go again for that reason.
