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

Originally of Marshall Field & Co., The Walnut Room still maintains it's classy charm. Macy's has made some improvements, such as color updates, to enhance the ambiance and the dining experience was wonderful. The brunch featured breakfast favorites such as scrumptuous French Toast, perfectly cooked bacon, and an egg dish, while accomodating the lunch crowd with the famous chicken pie... More

Quick summary: this is a civilized place for a good meal at reasonable prices. Friendly, professional service. The room itself reminds you of a more gracious time. I had some time before a business meeting in the area, and decided to get a good lunch. The menu is pretty wide, with sandwiches, salads, main plates, etc. I almost went for... More

I loved visiting the Walnut Room in Macy's on State Street; with it's beautiful panelled walls and ambience it is easy to imagine what it must have been like back in 1905. I tried the famous Mrs Field's Chicken Pot Pie and it was delicious.

The Walnut Room is super-popular at Christmas time, because people come to see the large tree. However, it's a gem year round,with good food and service at a reasonable price for the Loop. Most recently, I had the quiche and salad lunch, which was tasty and filling. Leave room for dessert so you can have the chocolate mint Frango pie... More

I love this place! I love this Macy's and I think the Walnut Room is absolutely precious. Make sure to come on a Friday to t. he bar and ask about the Friday Happy Hour special - we got a delightful red wine for $5 a (generous) glass and two different fun cheese plates for $5 each as well.
