The Park Grill is located in a beautiful location in Millennium Park on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. The decor is lovely, the staff is well uniformed, and it is clean and well lit. It has a wonderful patio overlooking the ice skating rink. The menu is modern and healthy. THAT SAID, here are the things that bothered me (maybe... More

Came for brunch just as they opened on a Sunday morning. Loved the location and the outside seating under the big awning. Enjoyed watching the people stroll by. Food was very good - I had the omelet special and my husband had a burger. Service was fine; water glass always filled, offers of more bread. If you're a vegetarian and... More

Located under "the bean" in Millennium Park. Food was good along with the drinks. Loved the location. Ate at the outside area which is great place to people watch. The wait on a summer afternoon for lunch was long. There was lots of chairs outside to wait for a table. Service a little on the slow side. Heard you could... More

I have had lunch and dinner many times at the Park Grill, and have always found the quality very fine. The menu is rather limited, but the variety of meat, fish, and poultry dishes is sufficient for most tastes. The T-bone steak at a recent dinner was very flavorful, and done rare as I asked. Risottos, pastas, salads, are all... More

The setting is nice as it is in the park and just off Michigan Ave but the food was HORRENDOUS. I am from New York so I had never heard of Barbacoa. It was something included in a Caesar Salad. Caesar Salad with Barbacoa. I asked the server (bartender): What is Barbacoa? He said: It's like tacos. I thought to... More

Nice place to eat lunch when visiting Millennium Park. Salads are especially tasty and a cool choice on a hot Chicago day.

we were in Chicago for the Taste that got rained out (7/12/14) and ended up with a lot of other people in Millennium Park for food... unfortunately, the staff that would have been at the the Taste were sent home, leaving the Grill shorthanded... except for a few superstars, and in particular our waitress, Janee. she is an awesome woman--...

Bar far the best location in town especially of you go to the rooftop (tree house). The food and beverages are good and reasonable. Love the duck egg roll. The chocolate cake is great too. Service is a bit slow...

We arrived a little before noon on a Friday and were able to get seated right away. Our section was full but not large. The waiter was completely inept. We were short silverwear and it took until 5 minutes after the salads were served to get drinks. What should have been a 45 minute lunch took almost 90 minutes. The... More
