On the 7th floor of the State Street Macy's (former Marshall Fields). This is a historic and classic restaurant that does a pretty good job and the service is professional and what was expected in service twenty years ago (that is a good thing). The food is good although a little dated and limited but you need to go to... More

We ate lunch here on a friday afternoon after shopping downstairs for a couple of hours. The room is gorgeous and the service was prompt. We had such a relaxing lunch. We had the chicken salad croissant, flank steak wrap and portobello burger. All were delish!! we also happen to be there on $5 sangria day. The sangrias were just... More

The Walnut Room inside of Macy's in Chicago has great atmosphere. I primarily enjoy eating here because of its atmosphere. The food is average, but still tasty. I enjoy the Chicken Pot Pie the best. My main complaint is with the service. The service is always extremely slow. It always seems that there are only a few servers for that... More

I've been coming here since a little girl. We were delighted to see that the menu included Walnut Room classics. The food was solid and our server was great. The environment has retained some of its traditional charm. The hostess took us to our seat as if she was seating a funeral. We'll come back for the tree at Christmas.... More

What a great way to spend the afternoon. After touring the Chicago Theatre, my husband and had lunch at the Walnut Room. It was a charming, elegant luncheon experience. Corner table with incredible views of the city coupled with first class white linen service made this a lunch to remember. The food was good- I had the chicken salad plate... More

My family and I have heard about this restaurant for years, and have tried it twice, once this summer and once during Christmas season. While both times were great, Christmas has a beautiful tree as a centerpiece. I loved the pot pie; my wife had the meat loaf. My son loved their cheeseburger. The daily soups are wonderful. After being... More

The Walnut Room was fine if you're out shopping and you want a bite to eat. The food was okay and the ambiance makes it seem nice. My friend made it sound like fine dining- which is why I was let down. I was expecting so much more since the restaurant uses Open Table for reservations! We went before a... More

I ate here as part of a family reunion, and there were about 35 of us in total. They had reserved a separate section for us, with 5 tables set aside for our group. The wait staff were good: friendly and efficient, surroundings were nice, and the food was very good too. Price per person was fixed at $22.95 including... More

The Walnut Room is located inside Macy's. It's really nice just to look at even if you don't eat here. We did eat this time. I had their signature Chicken Pot Pie. It was good. They have a formal wait staff and they pay good attention to you. It's worth a visit just to say you've eaten there. And the... More

This is the perfect must-do break to the wonderful shopping at Macy's on State St. We made reservations for 11, and we had a wonderful time. The service was excellent, the atmosphere very nice, and the food was delicious. For appetizers we got one Hummus Platter and Around the World Cheese platter, and it was the perfect amount for sampling,... More
