Great prices and service. Michael did a wonderful job, and Tammy was also helpful! It is a great place to stop before a show. The flatbread pizza was our favorite.

My wife and I were there for the weekend to see a show. First the valet guys nice the bell hop great but when you walk in to the hotel smells like sewage. (Later I ask about the smell apparently a pipe bust years ago caused damage they replace everything but every now and then they get a bad small.)... More

We went to dinner before a play and hadn't made reservations at better restaurants in the Playhouse Square area soon enough. Service was slow. There were six of us and when food finally arrived only half of us got our food. Food for the others came out five minutes later. The food was very disappointing. I never met a calamari... More

The food is excellent here. We had a great server, ask for Bobby! He will make you feel like a guest at his home. If you go to the bar beware. There is a super nasty bar tender. We stayed at the hotel for four days for a wrestling tournament last week. The first night we went down to the... More

Michelle, Thank you for your unbiased review. I have passed this on to our bartending team, and we are currently conducting enhanced customer service training. That response appalls me to even think that our staff is saying that. On a brighter note, Bobby does have a great personality and it shows with how he interacts with the customers. Thank you. More

I'm a bit hesitant to write this review because I *almost* don't want to let the secret out... Going to the theatre? Then, Happy Hour at Blue Bar is your go-to. Since we generally always do dinner before the show, I often emerge feeling full and somewhat uncomfortable in those squeezed-in rows of Playhouse Square. After hearing of the Happy... More

We had tickets to see Ron White at the State Theater and didn't remember to make reservations for dinner before the show so Encore was a last minute choice. We were seated immediately at a table pushed against the wall with zero lighting. I nearly used the flashlight on my phone to look at the menu it was so dark.... More

Fine dining, and certainly fine dining prices....yes, it's pricey. However, the food is quite good! The service was fantastic, friendly, personable. The restaurant itself is very pretty, especially when we were there (decorated for Christmas....gorgeous). The best part....we used the valet at the Wyndham and walked down to the theater...when we returned after the show, the valet had warmed up... More

My son and I went for dinner at the Encore when attending a concert at the Palace Theater in Playhouse Square. We hadn't really researched where to go beforehand and on Saturday night it isn't easy to find dinner on the fly. My husband and I had stopped here before so we thought to give it another shot.

We went on a Thursday, which has an Italian theme. The food was delicious - eggplant parmesan, chicken Marsala, zucchini, super Italian breadsticks (topped with cheese) and minestrone soup. All the items were excellent. There is also a pasta bar with lots of choices for toppings, and a good size salad bar. Everything tasted fresh. There is a different lunch... More

Hats off to Dretta and Erin. These two excellent servers made breakfast and lunch welcome times of the day. The food here was quite good. The breakfast buffet had everything one would anticipate. Fruits were all very fresh. The bacon crisp, not burned, and not greasy. I wanted feta for my omelette, and even though it was not listed on... More
