Dined with family while staying at the Palmer House. Very close to the Oriental Theater so convenient. Dinner was good, but not great, for the price.

We were staying at the Palmer House while in town to see Hamilton. It was convenient to eat there the day we arrived as we had tickets for St Patrick's Day show. We arrived when they opened at 5 pm, and I had made a reservation. My husband ordered one of the specialties for the day, Corned Beef and cabbage.... More

My boyfriend and I were staying at The Palmer House and were very excited to have a nice meal before catching a show later that night. Our reservation was at 6:15 amd the restaurant was oddly dead as it was Saturday night. We were seated quicky but after about ten minutes our drink order was no taken. Afraid of a... More

I literally have no words to describe the amazing experience that my friends and family had Lockwood. The food and the experience is, perhaps, the most important dining experience I have had in years. Chef Matt is king of food! There are not enough stars or circles for me to tell you how wonderful we were treated. Amaz-balls for this... More

Decided to give Lockwood a try on a Monday night after having thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet there in the morning. It was an opportunity to get some good quality meat for a change, especially the aged variety which, on my list, is hard to beat. There were plenty of tables from which to choose when we arrived at around... More

Used to overrated, overpriced hotel restaurants this one is an exception. The prices are decent for a steakhouse, with steaks in the $40-50 range and you can get a drinkable wine for $40-50. We had octopus as an appetizer, and it was good enough although the portion was way too small (even for 2 people to share). My ribeye was... More

I had lunch at the Lockwood Restaurant and the food was very good and the staff was very attentive to the table. They gave a good amount of food for the value. The restaurant is off of the main lobby area and they have a social area where you can get drinks right outside of the restaurant. I did see... More

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.
