Nice, quiet restaurant with a fabulous menu

If you are staying in the area, you should dine at the Florentine. Note that the menu pricing is higher than average. The food is worth the money spent. Portion sizes can be a bit large so make sure you bring your appetite.

Chicago has some amazing Italian restos, but if you want to sample some delicious wines, pizza and food make sure to venture here inside of the J.W. Marriott Hotel. Hotel food you say ...yes, I was shocked too while staying here for a wedding three years ago and have been back many times since. The wine list is fantastic, the... More

I visited the Florentine on Wednesday. The first thing that I noticed was that the restaurant had a spacious feel. This is one of the few restaurants that do not crowd the tables together. You can comfortably have a private conversation at your table. They started us out with their bread selection, bread sticks, and olive oil. We were greeted... More

It's a lovely restaurant with excellent service and is located in a beautiful hotel. We stopped for a late night meal after flying into Chicago. The wine list was ok and it was about $12 a glass. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the risotto small plate. She got the half-order and it was more than enough. The scallop entree was scintillating,... More

This restaurant is conveniently located in the JW Marriot Hotel in Chicago. The atmosphere was inviting and the food was really good. Our service was excellent during the lunch rush.

With a somewhat average luncheon menu that covers the basics and is well prepared, the place is a stalwart for the many of us who work in the area and need predictable fare for unpredictable business luncheons. The fake library-style decor and the somewhat challenging acoustics are a distraction.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
