Pleasant surprise

I am a Marriott reward member. This is not a typical bistro in a courtyard. I was very impressed with the food. The customer service was great as well. The hotel is a great location downtown Chicago. Eating is a plus. My expectations were not high at all and this place exceeded my expectations.

We did not stay at this hotel, but did meet some friends for drinks in the bar on Saturday August 8. The bartender was very rude and condescending to our guests visiting from outside the country. Maybe he was having a bad night but I will not be patronizing this business again.

I don't have much time to spend on this review. Here is the low-down. We sat outside which was the best part of this place. Service was ok at best. Not terrible but less than great. The ribs and mahi mahi were awesome. The chicken flat bread was ok. The mac and cheese were pretty good. The bill for 3... More

During my quick trip to Chicago for a one day meeting I stayed at the courtyard on Ontario. It is a nicer than most high rise in an ideal neighborhood for my meetings and great for walking around. I decided to have a quick meal in the lobby restaurant. After waiting almost 10 minutes at the host stand a young... More

This restaurant is located in the Courtyard Marriott Michigan Avenue/Mag Mile. We were staying at the hotel and dined here twice while we were touring around the city. The first night we ate here we just had appetizers and some wine. All were very good. The service was a bit disorganized (no cocktail menu given with regular menus so we... More

The food was solid, but the best part of this experience was the bartender, Eric. He was all over everything drinks & food at the bar plus handling tables.

Better food than most 4 star full service Marriotts! Chef Taylor and staff served business travelers and locals surprisingly-custom appetizers and trendy cocktails in a hoppin' Thursday night Bistro atmosphere. The Bistro would make me want to stay at that Courtyard rather than the other way around. A short cab ride from the Loop and Arts District. Friendly staff, too!

Had a very nice late lunch. We were a group of 5 and they seated us in a private room which was great since we needed to have work conversations. The tomato soup was delicious and grilled cheese very gourmet with flavorful Brie and other cheeses. Also served with fries so great comfort food for cold day. Very nice decor,... 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.
