Found this restaurant by coincidence and it looked appealing from the outside. Was not disappointed for food and service - indeed liked it a lot. Restaurant conveniently located for theaters near by.

Went there with a group and we had a room upstairs for us. It seems that our entire meal was not on the standard dinner menu: we had several apps such as bacon-wrapped shrimp and guacamole. Then we had a chop salad that was fine and I chose KC Strip steak which was a little smaller than expected but cooked... More

In the middle of Chicago's theatre district, I recommend Petterino's for dinner. My business associates and I dined there recently...the service was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. I had baked trout, my friends had the medallions of beef with truffle oil. All was delicious. If you're not going to the theatre, make a reservation for after 7... More

Wonderful surprise, as this is more of a tourist/theatre district restaurant. I had the Country rigatoni and my wife had the linguine shrimp scampi. Both were delicious and large orders. Definitely a good bet for dinner.

I was looking forward to eating here but was a little disappointed. The service was very attentive and efficient, but the food was lacking. My featured appetizer of the evening was less than special and I wish I had gone with my original choice (crab cake). The restaurant style feels like i have gone back in time, however the menu...

Awesome! Food was excellent. I had the medallions and my daughter had a burger that was huge! The service was great as well. I definitely recommend reservations even on. A weekday. It was pretty busy on a Tuesday evening.

Arrived at 5 with reservation on Thursday night and the place was just starting to fill up. It is located with adjoining doors to the Goodman theater and as you may expect many diners were going there for the 7;30 show. The restaurant is about 2-4 blocks from quite a few a theaters. I had cup of very nice tomato... More

The service, coat room, valet were all very professional with FULL adult and middle age workers - i always appreciate that in my food service. They seem to lend a different more relaxed... More
