The ambience of the restaurant is beautiful. The decor is very cool. The view while dining is so neat. The dinner items were very good. The sea bass was wonderful.

My hubby and I are visiting Chicago from Indianapolis enjoying a little holiday cheer without our 10 kids! Being the rookie foodies that we are...we love the food experience. We researched the Michelin Star restaurants in Chicago for a true food experience. Sixteen in the Trump Tower was top on our bucket list! The festive atmosphere greeted us as we... More

We had lunch at Sixteen, and the four of us agreed that the wines we ordered were really great, and the food was absolutely excellent. I have never had such an incredible starter before: the compressed kale salad with black eyed peas was so surprising and delicious… What we didn't like: -While we were enjoying this exceptional meal there were...

This fine dining experience is not for the faint of heart, nor faint of wallet. Had a $500 gift card to use and thought I would be coming out with a credit...ha! There are about 4 courses, with each individual course having two to three subparts. Most courses were served with a small demi spoon and there is no ala... More

I was staying opposite Trump Tower and had read good things about Sixteen so decided I would treat myself a lunch there. This restaurant does have that "Fine Dine" feel as soon as you walk in and there seems to be a high number of well dressed staff filing the room. Upon presentation with the menu I was tossing up...

My husband and I have a habit of dropping in and asking for last minute tables, we wished we'd skipped this one. As per our habit, we asked if they had room for two just for a cocktail and an app and they sat us. And then we waited. And waited, and oh look - nope we waited some more.... More

First, it would be worth going to Sixteen just for the amazing, in-your-face view of Downtown Chicago. Simply stunning! The menu changes every few months. This menu revolved around dishes inspired by each of the staff. The extensive tasting menu with paired wines involved some choices and lots of "extra" morsels they brought. Meal took nearly 4 hours, yet the... More

This brunch is very expensive, but it is the best brunch I've had in Chicago! I love sushi, and the sushi at brunch was fresh and tasty. I also tried the main courses, desserts and salads. Everything is of the highest quality. There were four of us and everyone loved it.

A well rounded restaurant gives you great food, great wines, amazing service, an ambiance that you will never forget and a vibe that will tickle your fancy. Well this restaurant on the 16th floor of the Trump building gives you all of that including a view and a staff that really gets it. The staff takes care of you so... More

A recent two star venue well worth patronising at lunch time (especially if one wishes to avoid the faddish elaborate tasting menus that take up so much time and energy). Central downtown location in the Trump hotel with good but not the best city. Highly recommended.
