Renovation is beautiful!

Sat at the bar and had glasses of wine while people watching. The renovation keeps the old, classic style while bumping it up with a very cool modern-retro vibe. One of the nicest places in the city to have a cocktail.

I went to Atwood with a colleague for lunch and found it to be overall average. Nothing wowed me--the service was average and the food was average. Suffice it to say, the experience wasn't memorable. With the plethora of restaurants in the Loop for lunch, I'd probably go somewhere else first.

We arrived at 12:30 to have a brunch before going to see Beautiful. Since people eat at Atwood before plays, the staff is very prompt with service and the timing of your food. I tryed their Smoked Salmon Benedict with avocado and a dill hollandaise sauce. For me, the egg was cooked perfectly and the richness of the sauce was... More

We had made a reservation through OpenTable, and we were seated promptly. Our waiter, Adam November, was spectacular. He took our coats, and asked if we were following supper with a show. Great attention to detail!! The menu is wonderful, and we had asked Adam about a few dishes. He paired wines with the meal perfectly. Each recommendation was spot... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dining at the Atwood. Had occasion to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, while staying at the Hotel Burnham. The waitstaff was engaging, knowledgeable, and efficient. The food was excellent. Enjoyed every meal.

A real treat for brunch. Great service, immaculately presented restaurant, superb eggs Benedict and probably the best coffee I've had this side of the Atlantic. All in all very impressed, would highly recommend.

This place has delicious food! And the ambience is comforting. It also is lovely that it is location inside the Hotel Burnham. It's a great place to have meal with a friend to catch up, or even have a lunch meeting.

We had a nice breakfast at the Atwood. They have renovated the bar/restaurant since I had last visited, it is now more open and modern. The bloody Mary's and the various champagne drinks were good. The breakfast selection is small but creative and everyone enjoyed their food. I would have given them a excellent rating but for our seating arrangement.

I hadn't eaten at Atwood for several years so didn't realize they had redecorated. I must say the new decor left me cold and did not add to the ambiance of the restaurant. Our food was certainly acceptable, but nothing was really inspiring. I had the cajun shrimp sandwich special and my friend had the pulled pork, which was not... More

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.
