This time I had lunch at 16 and it was a memorable experience....The food was so original in its presentation and also tasty. The service was excellent. The room is well appointed and the tables spaced far enough apart that you were not part of other diners conversation. i also had a light dinner on the terrace and the view... More

I had wanted to get a very simple lunch, and was offered the a la carte menu, and selected the burger. I have to say it is one of the best burgers I have had, and topped with a great cheese. Included was a tall cluster of fries, and a pair of sides (carrots and artichoke hearts). I had the... More

On a recent business trip to Chicago I met a couple of prospective suppliers for lunch at Sixteen at the Trump Tower. Sixteen is a very nice location, open and airy with an amazing view of the city. The service was excellent and the meal was good but not exceptional, the portions were skimpy and the bill was something only... More

Sixteen is one of Chicago's dining gems. Alongside Alinea, Sixteen is one of the "must do" dining experiences in the city. I was thoroughly impressed with the attentive, professional, and friendly service during my long night of dishes and wine pairings. The food was exquisite, innovative, well prepared, and well served. I had been on a Michelin star dining spree... More

Had a great evening, dining solo - as I usually do for major tastings. Service was attentive and excellent without being intrusive or excessive. Food presentation was outstanding. Quantities were well measured but more than sufficient. I had the mid-range wine matching selection. I was presented with 2 wines to taste per dish. Some matchings were very difficult to make...

Fantastic service. Delightful menu. Beautiful view. Has become our new favorite for anniversary dinners. All the servers were exceptional and made for a warm welcoming experience. Portions were small, but perfect with exquisite flavors..an absolute explosion for your taste buds. With many courses and "special" items from the kitchen, we certainly did not leave hungry. Think we'll be back here... More

The food & wine were 5 stars, the portions 2 stars. The service is what makes this restaurant special. The servers are plentiful and when they bring you each course, all is explained in a very friendly and professional manner. Its a very limited menu where there a about 2-4 choices for each course and it changes frequently. Then room... More

A+ Emily. Others who helped her along the way were also helpful. The restaurant was clean, crisp linen, great view of the city, bathrooms clean.... More

Flew into Chicago and was due to attend a private business dinner. Was tired and really didn't want to go. Decided I should. I was so glad, the hotel and the dining areas are stunning. The service is immaculate and the food is Michelin standards. All in all a great experience and it's right in the middle of Chicago. You... More
