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,...

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
