We had a fantastic experience at Sixteen. The tasting menu was delicious and so much thought had gone into it; from the 3D menu, to the mini picnic chequered table cloth, to the gold leaf with the caviar, the attention to detail made the meal special. The service was good, attentive without being overbearing, and our servers (there were a... More

We had high hopes for this Michelin 2 star restaurant, but were extremely disappointed. The food itself was done well and was good, but nothing that was new or creative. The service on the other hand was pretty blah. I can't say it was terrible as it wasn't like there was any major faux pas, but we never saw the... More

We had dinner at "Sixteen" in July of 2013. The dinner was to celebrate a special weekend staying downtown Chicago. There is no question that this venue has a spectacular setting with magnificent views of downtown Chicago. In addition, the room is tastefully decorated and designed for customer comfort. However, the service was absolutely shabby and snobby. We had to... More

Our party of seven selected the Summer Land/Sea tasting menu with wine pairings. The menu (they provide each diner with a copy upon leaving) listed nine courses, but with "gifts from the chef", it totaled fourteen and I'm not sure that included the cheese course. The meal is hard to compare to anything else. Charlie Trotter's prix fixe menu was... More

The view was totally non-existent since they closed the window shades. Food was short of ordinary. Service was excellent. There was no access to the terrace until late afternoon. We like excellent food and good ambience. We got neither. Prices are very high, which we expected, but we expected excellence as well - we did not get that.

I have never met so many pretentious in one room. We were patrons here to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday, which is one St Patricks. I picked the place for the view of turning the Chicago river green. When the host of the restaurant told us to keep our children quite, I was immediately turned off! My kids where well... More

A stunning place for Sunday brunch. Very good food, and elegant ambience at the 16th floor at the Trump Tower. Service was a bit slow, but definately a place to visit.

My wife and I spent a very pleasant three hours enjoying a tasting menu with about 10 stated courses plus several chef's extra's. Dessert was almost disappointing only because we were full from all the tastes of various meats and vegetables. The service was excellent. In recent years, I have only infrequently enjoyed the level of professionalism exhibited by the... More

Amazing view of the lake and the city, you just cant beat the location. And, it was Trump, we expected it to be great and it was, other than it was unseasonably cool for May. But it was fantastic. Can't wait to go back.
