We ate at Allium 5 times over the weekend - 3 times for breakfast and 2 times for dinner or after dinner. Loved the vegan dessert and the innovative food. The lamb was excellent, as were the lobster nachos.

Walking down the Four Seasons hallway to Allium this time of year sets the mood with the festive holiday decorations for a fine dining experience. Request a window table for maximum lighting. While the lunch menu is somewhat limited, every item on it is delicious, including the $21 hamburger and fries.

Since I travel a lot...I am usually disappointed in hotel food. This was not the case at Allium. The food and the service were impeccable. Some quick recommendations...for breakfast definitely have the Chicago Hot Dog...because..well it is not a hotdog just a combination of eggs and meat that are perfect. For lunch have the brisket but instead of having it... More

Located in the Four Seasons. Request a window seat for a great view. Went for brunch and ordered the Grilled Cheese which was wonderful (sour dough bread, easy over egg, ham or turkey, cheese, etc.). Breakfast is also great. They serve a nice leaf brewed English breakfast tea. A wondergful place to take a date!

I was visiting from Columbus, Ohio for the weekend with my family. So happy that we were able to get away for the weekend for the Cubs in town, so I wanted to treat my family to a nice dinner. Well, what I thought was going to be nice. The food was incredible, so props to the cooks, just the... More

You're missing out if you haven't stopped by the Allium bar for their delicious "homemade everything" hot dog (yes, a fancy hot dog!) It's worth every penny!!

Went Allium for dinner and had a great time. Sarah our server was awesome! Ask for her, but only if you're not stuffy or no fun. Have the deviled eggs and the poutines are good. It's quiet except for the very loud fountain, lol. Lamb and pork chops are worth it.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
