Great Room Service

Ordered a salad off the menu at the bar for room service. It was delivered 15 minutes later. Fresh and nicely packaged. Convenient, affordable, healthy option. The menu had a nice variety. The restaurant was busy and staff friendly.

Chicken strips overcooked, prices on the expensive side for quality and quantity. Mixed drink was $11 and not anything special. There are other establishments in the area with better food and better prices.

I stayed in the adjacent hotel to this restaurant and I must say, the food was excellent. Their burgers are SO good. They also provided room service which was a big plus. I would go back in a flash.

We went into the restaurant based on ratings and the menu. The Shepherd's Pie was amazing! Best I have ever had! My friend had the fish and chips and was equally pleased. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. I'd love to come back next time I'm in Chicago.

And they have some dishes with an Indian flair (and Canadian...poutine). I typically have the butter chicken, which is a curried dish. It could be a... 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.
