I have been coming to the Walnut Room for decades now. First as a little girl with my mother. Later with my mother-in-law (my treat) and now with my daughter. I am so glad that they kept this Chicago treasure the way it was when it was still owned by Marshall Field's. Linen table cloths, excellent food, respectful waiters, classical... More

Thank goodness Macy’s didn’t mess with this room when it took over Marshall Fields! It is still the beautiful old-world dark oak paneled room tucked away on the 7th floor. Several people in my group had the Pot Pie, which they said was excellent. We later found out this is a signature (and historic) dish in this restaurant. I had... More

This is an absolute MUST before Christmas if you have never been. I took my 4 year old for brunch. We got all dressed up and went little before they opened and actually had NO WAIT!! But 15 minutes later there was a huge line already forming. This place is crazy EVERYDAY before Christmas so be forewarned. Not unusual to... More

Went in December of 2013 with some friends for lunch and shopping. We had a large group with us. My meal was just okay. The bad part came when we were trying to settle the bill. The wait person refused to divide the check for us or allow any more than four different payments towards the bill. There was no... More

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 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
