Solid eatery in the beautiful Ritz lobby. We went during restaurant week so we got a great deal on a 3 course meal. Attentive staff and solid food.

“Good food, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

A late lunch and an early breakfast both proved to be very satisfying both in terms of food and service. Different items were ordered by people in our party and all arrived quickly and at the appropriate temperature. Breakfast orders were the usual egg dishes, etc, but were done nicely and quickly. The staff was very attentive but didn't hover adding to the enjoyment. Recommend it for at least the breakfast and lunch menu.

“Great Experience”

Overall a wonderful time. Attentive staff in a great setting. Very good food and you can relax and have a drink or two. Waiters will not rush you out. Highly Recommended.

“Great view (both inside and out)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Exceptional service (as to be expected at the Ritz) with a decent wine menu and food options. Met some friends from out of town here. It's quiet enough to have a good conversation but not too quiet. Good view of the lobby/centerpiece fountain. There's also an outdoor area overlooking parts of Chicago.

“Super friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We ate lunch at Deca earlier this year, during Chicago Restaurant week: It was great for the price, and the service was super friendly and helpful. The food is above average for such a restaurant in Chicago, and the setting is beautiful. It is a good place to go to lunch and feel pampered, if you're shopping in the neighborhood. The second time we came, we sat outside in the cafe, where we had a very nice salad and again the super-friendly staff. It's very quiet, classy, clean, at least at the time of day we were there. This is now my go-to place for a break from the bustle of Michigan Avenue.
