Great food and drink specials at the bar for Happy Hour. Service was exceptional. Enjoyed my food a lot and liked the vibe in there -- didn't feel like a typical hotel restaurant. Definitely worth a visit.

We ate here two mornings while staying at the hotel. Their breakfast was awesome. We had the omelet one morning. It came with potatoes and greens. Another morning we did eggs, bacon, again it came with potatoes and greens. Coffee was great and the english muffin so tastey. Wished we could have had dinner here but it didn't work out.

The space is great. Beautiful bar. Menu is limited though. Not a basic dish on the menu. I had to ask to create an antipasto. Also had to ask for other pizza options as they only had 1 on menu with brussel sprouts. The food was good. Not great. Chicago has better options. Service was very good though.

This restaurant was noisy, the waiters were scattered, the food was disappointing. It's located in a Marriott hotel but seems to have a problem accommodating the large crowds they must get frequently.

Florentine is in the JW Marriott. I had breakfast there, and the setting was very nice and the food was good. I only gave it 3 stars, however, because the service, while friendly, was painfully slow.

Fabulous little place tucked away inside the JW Marriott in the Financial District. Perfect spot for a private luncheon, following a private, guided tour of the Rookery (just across the street). We had the butternut squash bisque and spinach salad for starters, then moved on to a choice of main -- salmon on brioche (quite good), pork milanese (also very... More

Food was great. Went with a party from work. Noise level in the restaurant was a bit high, yet it was a party from work. I had a Caesar salad which was ok. I also had a Mahi Mahi pan fried with a prosciutto crust on the skin side with brussel sprouts and a light puree of something - maybe... More

We were in town for a long weekend and stayed at the JW Marriott. This 2nd floor restaurant would normally be a little out of my price range for dinner, but they have a great happy hour! Buy a beer or cocktail and get a woodfired pizza Free! Good beer selection, handmade cocktails with fresh ingredients and good pizza. We... More

The restaurant is situated on the second floor of JW Marriott Hotel Chicago. The atmosphere is amazing. I really loved the decor. Felt fresh and stylish, just like the food itself. The pasta is deliciously prepared and the dishes come in really large portions. It's a little pricey considering it's an upscale hotel restaurant but it's a very tranquil spot... More
