Altho its Macy's now, not Marshall Field's (the iconic Chicago department store), I still love coming for lunch when I go to Kraff's Eye Institute across the street for my care there.
The food is tasty and well-presented, proper temperature and nice sized portions.
The furniture is a bit worn out (table legs scuffed and windowsills in need of refinishing - I swear I can see the same scuff marks from when I kicked the table legs as a child!)
White linen table cloths are covered with white butcher paper - guess corners need to be cut somewhere and saving on laundry is a no-brainer.
Get a window table if the center atrium is not decorated at holidays. The views of Chicago skyscrapers are breathtaking.
Service by Miguel our server was gracious and attentive, altho its the custom to push the appetizers and soups to beef up the % for a tip I notice. I hate this. If I want something Im a big girl and I can ask for it :/
I had the Flank Steak Salad which was tasty- the steak was charred outside and medium inside just as ordered, with fresh greens and lots of shoestring potatoes as garnish.
DH had Meatloaf which he liked. We shared Angel Food Cake with Berries for dessert - a huge portion big enough for two.
Will return and recommend.
