Located inside the Four Seasons hotel, the Allium is upscale yet relaxed for lunch. While staying at the hotel, we tried it for lunch.There are couches and tables, and the food was excellent. I tried the 500 calorie lunch and loved it: Endive salad with pomegranates (yum), Salmon filet, and dark Chocolate sorbet all for 500 calories. They were delicious... More

We used to go to another similar caliber hotel but, this one experienced has definitely changed our plans. The people that we encountered were pleasant, helpful and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. The food selection was really good from the... More

The Four Seasons' lobby is at 7th floor -definitely raffinated, although a bit too white for my taste. The Allium bar, lounge and restaurant is far warmer, thanks to the dark wood panels and softer lights. I liked the various kinds of armchairs, combined with modern paintings: it's a mix of classic and lively that makes this place appealing to... More

My daughter wanted to do "High Tea" and the Allium @ Four Seasons was one if few places near our hotel we could get reservations on short notice - I think they have recently added it to their services. Nice atmosphere but not worth the $42 price tag - food was fine , the tea was delicious. An expensive "we... More

This is a lobby bar. It is comfortable and the service is attentive. I visited during the first week of December. Chicago is very beautifully decorated at this time of year. The Allium Bar was very pretty.

The duck was excellent, sous vid. Pork not as great. Pricey. Had a wonderful Joseph Phelps Pinot. Chocolate sorbet was decadent. Excellent service. Did I say pricey, but it is a Four Seasons Restaurant. Convenient for hotel guests.

Visited for lunch with friends. Beautiful atmosphere and you can dine near bright windows with a fountain or in another area that is darker with a fireplace. We choose the later.

My wife was at a cooking demonstration at Bloomies given by the chef at Allium. She liked it so much we made reservations for dinner. The menu is not huge but the selection is very good. We mentioned to our waiter about the demo my wife attended and when our venison arrived it was brought out by the chef himself.... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
