Just finished lunch at Rosebud on Rush. Monday before Thanksgiving, it's raining and/or snowing and unpleasant outside. The place was pretty empty which is understandable. We had a yearning for Italian so it suited us fine. Started with the special - lobster wedge salad. We divided one between the two of us and we could easily have split it four... More

I'm from Detroit but I get to Chicago a few times a year. Each time I come to Chicago I make it a point to have dinner at Rosebud. I've been doing this for 25 years. Rosebud is just a fantastic restaurant, consistently excellent. Put it on your short list of restaurants to go to when you are visiting Chicago.... More

My wife and I needed to come in from the cold and we were desperate to find a place to eat. WE walked by Rosebud, took a chance, and glad we did. I had the Chicken Picatta, which was perfect. 3 breasts, sauce was perfect. My wife had the gluten free pasta with shrimp and veggies. The shrimp were huge.... More

Went with a large group (13) and had the crumbed veal chop Parma and spaghetti. If you can finish it then give yourself a pat on the back. Great food and excellent service. No one waited and all orders spot on with time and accuracy. One of a few 'Rosebuds' in Chicago but will not disappoint.

Were with a group of eleven in the upstairs dining room on a Friday night.. Excellent wait service. As soon as we were seated, bread baskets and dipping oil appeared, and our drinks soon followed. Most of our group chose the broiled sea bass with shrimp in a lemon sauce with wilted spinach entree, one of the chef's specials of... More

The food in this place was very good, but portions are a little large. Service was ok , but we found the waiter a little pushy in trying to get us to order specials from the menu. Would eat here again

Old style Italian with solid food if not overly exciting or innovative; space is crowed and could use an update. Service very attentive. Value is just average

We found this place after Mass on Sunday morning. Their porch area, enclosed in plastic and heated with heat lamps, was bustling with guests. It looked intriguing, but we chose to sit in the main dining room down a short flight of stairs. Service was good. Food was good. I was amazed at the size of my French Toast: two... More

We had lunch there yesterday 11/8/14 due to not being able to get into Digordonos (across the street). We had no wait, quickly were seated. Entrance way has photos of celebrities that have dined there (like 90s). We were brought warm bread and olive oil right away. We ordered spicy calamari ($9)(we are from RI and literally have the best... More
