Allium is the restaurant inside the Four Seasons. It's absolutely our kids favorite place to eat. The have a homemade hot dog, with homemade ketchup, mustard, relish, etc. It's absolutely the best hot dog you'll ever have. The rest of the menu is fantastic and seems to be hitting its stride since Allium opened several years ago. The lounge is... More

Had a late afternoon snack and breakfast here. Lots of comfortable informal seating with large bar area, attentive staff, great choice of appetizers (pretzel balls with fois gras in mustard sauce, bratwurst bangers) and nice selection of single malts for a snack. Menu was wide enough for 4 teen s and parents. Sitting in front of warm fire place was... More

Whether grabbing a quick bite before curtain at the Lookingglass Theater with a friend, or enjoying a leisurely meal with family, Allium is always the best choice. Everyone - the hotel lobby attendants, the host, the waiters, the bussers, are all warm, unpretentious, cheerful, and attentive. The food is extraordinary and there is a wide range of offerings and prices.... More

Thanks to the kind hostesses that are finding a way to seat us last minute for brunch on Christmas day! The food and service here are consistently amazing.

Inside the Four Season hotel for Sunday breakfast. The menu is excellent. I had the Chicago Scrambled with bacon. My friend had the yogurt with berries and the eggs benedict. We shared a chocolate croissant. Everything was excellent from the food to the service. The reservation said it was our birthdays so the chef made a birthday plate with fruit,... More

The service has always been superb. The food, never a disappointment. They manage to make eating a holiday meal away from home feel like "the ideal holiday meal. A real celebration." #1. I never go to Chicago without having lunch at Allium. Most of the time, I'll have the "Chicago Hot Dog." ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I brought my husband and brother... More

We stayed at The Four Seasons in Chicago and had a "free" breakfast included. We were both disappointed. The hostess was professional and courteous but it was downhill from there. The waiter seemed distracted and had trouble remembering simple requests... we waited 15 minutes for water. I asked for black coffee and received a lukewarm cup with cream on the... More

Allium serves brunch only on Sundays starting at 11 am. The atmosphere is very comfortable and warm. The service was great. The brunch consists of a pre-set 4 course meal including an alcoholic drink and a hot drink for around 70 dollars per person. We started with with warm bread covered with caramel and pecans. It was heavenly. Then we... More
