The staff at Sixteen were the most attentive I have ever experienced, to the point where my date got annoyed and wanted to be left alone. If you want to be left alone, this isn't the restaurant for you. I enjoyed our dinner and could see myself coming back in the future.

Pricey, but OK. Sixteen restaurant was terrible. Chef's prix fixe had poor selections. Ask for the alternate menu if you have to eat there. Terrace had very slow service. Nastiest coffee you can find.

Sunday brunch. Great food with immaculate presentation. Service was great and a special request honored sealed it. Try to book reservation on a day with beautiful weather so that afterwards taking time out on the terrace is even more enjoyable. Wonderful lake views any time of year, Chicago river traffic in spring to fall.

2 star michelin for affordable prices. The burger is a must! The view is also amazing and worth the visit

We went for lunch and the experience can be easily summed up as very nearly perfect. The only service mistake was when our amuse-bouche plate was not cleared before our first course arrived. This is a very minor error, but I believe that it is fair to be extremely critical since the restaurant has, and definitely deserves, two Michelin stars.... More

So I was wanting to dislike the experience for so many reasons...and for years avoided Sixteen at the Trump. I was pleasantly surprised after my latest dinner experience. The food and presentation were excellent. The atmosphere was perfect. The staff were mostly young and perhaps "amateur'ish", but still very knowledgeable and appropriate. Would I do it again??...probably not. Chicago has... More

We went for breakfast while staying at Trump hotel. Very good service and the food was great. They made 2 eggs seem like a lot more. Ham and cheese omlete was amazing. The view was awesome. Well worth the price and visit.

With two Michelin Stars currently shining above Sixteen and pricing as high as the tower in which the restaurant resides; it seemed reasonable to go in with high expectations on the evening. Our (poor) experience began as we stepped off the elevator into noise from cocktail lounge that sounded more like we were at a Friday's. The sound unfortunately carried... More

The best restaurant I have EVER been to. For very special moments. Start with an Aperitiv at the terrace of this fantastic restaurant, at the 16th floor with a great view of the river and the skyscrapers, then walk in and tell the waiters what you like and what you like less, and what sort of preparation you would like,...
