Gorgeous view!

My husband and I had a cocktail by the window. What a gorgeous view and atmosphere. Our waitress was wonderful and very attentive. The tables were a bit close together but still nice! Will revisit on our next trip!

Had dinner for 7 here with family to celebrate a graduation. The flights are gastronomically inspired but left something to be desired. I think the ambiance was slightly off. For the price, you can get a more intimate experience at Alinea.

My husband and I ate at sixteen recently for our birthdays. We are foodies and try to eat at as many Michelin starred restaurants as we are able to. We knew ahead of time that this dinner was going to cost us a lot of money but it was our birthday gift to each other. The dining room is stunning... More

I will be honest I am definitely not a foodie or by any means an expert at cuisine. That being said I visited Sixteen with family in January. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was spectacular. It was overall a wonderful experience. However, the next day I felt that in comparison to some other restaurants, I couldn't remember anything... More

My husband and I were in Chicago for a wedding and stayed a few more days to visit the city. Someone recommended to go eat at Sixteen but that they found dinner to be extremely expensive. So we went for lunch. The view is the best and the food and the service were very good. I would definitely go back... More

Sixteen located on the 16th floor of the Trump Hotel is outstanding, especially if you have a party member who is celebrating her 16th birthday. Service was attentive, but not hovering. The pace of the serving of 9 courses with many "gift/chef's extra" courses was well paced. The chef changes the menu on a monthly basis with what is current.... More

Recently on our way to Aspen we missed our connection in Chicago due to snow in..wait for it..Dublin, Ireland. Instead of staying at an airport hotel we decided to go downtown. And on the way in to the city booked dinner at Sixteen. Having previously enjoyed breakfast and lunch there and loving the views, we figured dinner would be something... More

Went with my awesome wife for Valentine's Day and enjoyed one of the best high end tasting menus!!!! The creative food combinations, chef's "extras", jenga menu format and most of all the super knowledgeable and so unpretentious wait staff. You will not regret going and the view is simply magnificent Chicago!

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal and experience at Sixteen a couple of weeks ago. It was truly a special evening. We chose the tasting menu with wine pairing. The sommelier matched my menu with non oaked white wines due to my allergy to tannins. There were 4 courses to choose, the menu was built into jenga pieces.... More

Sixteen has been on my radar for a while now and let me begin by saying they are well deserving of their 2 Michelin Stars. Our table for 4 was well set amongst the beautiful back drop of chicago, a view I feel us 4 local sometimes take for granted. The menu was so artfully crafted in a Jenga esque... More
