Desserts are great

We had a business dinner here a couple of times and it was pretty decent. I had the steak and then the meatloaf. Both were ok. I have had better, although the desserts were pretty good. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the area. The service is beyond average and they try and get you... read more

The food was good and priced fairly. Drinks were made right. Our server was friendly and took good care of our group. We were able to watch the Blackhawk's game which was a big plus for us.

Stopped in for lunch after checking in to the Emabssy Suites. I had the club, my wife had the crab cake sandwich. The club was the most tasteless club I've had in my life. I don't know how to make a sandwich so bland, but their chef sure does. I tried a bite of my wife's crab cake. I had... More

We tried to eat dinner here on a Friday evening about 9 after a long drive to Chicago. But, no one was at the host stand where we waited for 5-10 minutes, along with 2 other parties. We finally seated ourselves, and still no server stopped by to acknowledge us. There were several wait staff working, and the bar and... More

I read other reviews of this restaurant before walking over to the Embassy Suites (I am staying at the nearby Doubletree) and I liked that it seemed to have a number of healthy vegetarian options. I had the eggplant lasagna which is made with other vegetables, cheese, and has no noodles in it! It was delicious and healthy. The wine... More

This is the Embassy Suites restaurant off their lobby. Menu is limited but specials were well priced, but we only had late night drinks here. The sound level was low so were were able to chat as well, something that can be difficult at the nearby Lincoln Park restaurants.

Can't speak for food - only had dessert - spumoni ice cream BEST EVER!! Looked like they had a decent bar with several good draft beers - not sure about wines by the glass. Worth a stop by if you are thirsty or craving something sweet.

I had a quick lunch in the bar before leaving the area. I ordered a delicious prime rib sandwich and a beer and watched sports on the bar television while I ate. The food was great and the service was fast. As with hotel restaurants, it was a bit pricey, but not too bad for lunch.

Since the Atrium was under renovations we had breakfast, lunch and entertainment in Basil's. The food was well prepared and choices were plentiful. I would recommend at least one meal at Basil's while you are staying at the Embassy Rosemont.
