Conveniently located in the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Conference Center. A cut above most hotel restaurants, but a notch or two below expectations for a true "steak house". Interesting selection of steak house menu items and ala' carte prices to match. Portions were good, but food wasn't phenomenal and my steak looked more like it came off a a gridle... More

The food here is very good and the service is awesome! You will not be disappointed. We had lunch here and the salads were fresh and we received whole avocados! My team and I thought that was awesome.

Awesome bartender on the evening of Friday, May 16. He even divided our desserts in half between two containers to take to our guest room. Exceptional service .

We had a fantastic breakfast. The service was extremely friendly. The buffet had bacon and eggs, potatoes, yogurts, croissants they make onsite, pancakes. You name it. The view and atmosphere is fantastic.

Ok, the food and service rivals some of the big name brand restaurants in the area. However, the prices were, to me, a little steep. I loved the breakfast buffet. I also enjoyed the Salmon at dinner. My waitresses were always there to assist with anything and did a great job of making me feel like royalty.

You can always rely on great service, tasty food in an upscale setting at this location. The waiters are seasoned professionals who know their menu. Everything on the menu is delicious including appetizers, sides, salads, main course and desserts! Great restaurant located in a fantastic hotel.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. We decided not to venture out of the hotel in the 5 degree weather. We had been here for breakfast the previous year and it was nice. This time, we came for dinner. I didn't find anything on the menu I wanted so we ordered crab cakes, lobster bisque, a side... More

We enjoyed the restaurant. The steaks were prepared perfectly and served simply. The salad was excellent. The only issue we had is that they don't serve baked potatoes. The prices were moderate to high.

I eat at this restaurant once a year because it's located in the hotel where my conference takes place. Every year it seems like the quality continues to go down. I was definitely disappointed with this year's dinner. A very lackluster salad followed by a mediocre New York Steak and somewhat poor service. Our server tried really hard but it... More

On a par with a Morton's or similar, certainly above average for a hotel. Everyone in our party was pleased with their selections. The wine list was extensive, the desert offerings were limited but excellent. The filet I had was certainly very good, although not spectacular. Seems to be a safe choice for a special date or business dinner.
