“Wonderful dinner, drinks and service!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

We went there Easter evening, after the Easter Brunch was over. They had served 500 for brunch, and they were short on service personnel . It took a while to start, but after that , the waiter was excellent and food met or exceeded our expectations. There were more people for dinner in the evening than I think they expected, but they did a wonderful job! Highly recommended.

“Zillion Dollar Grilled Cheese Sandwich”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Definitely nothing like it. An experience trying this culinary creation. Side if lobster Mac and cheese actually could've been cheesier. Loved the ham in the sandwich but could've done without the foie gras. Went the Saturday before Easter for lunch and pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves. Service was excellent. Chef came out and sprinkled truffle shavings on our sandwich. Also surprised us with a delicious 10 layer chocolate cake. He checked in with us 3 times. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Breakfast at the Hotel”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Caught a late breakfast at the hotel. Service was adequate but the food was very good. I had the smoked salmon platter and it was delicious. Potions were really too large and were priced as such - too high. Some items were somewhat reasonable but many were really outlandish - perhaps because it was The Ritz.....I would recomment splitting to avoid wasting the good food.

“Okay food, TERRIBLE service”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here while staying at the Ritz. Menu looked great, tripadvisor reviews were good, so we were looking forward to a nice casual meal. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our server brought our cocktail and took our dinner order and that is the last time he stopped by our table until after our entrees were cleared away. Kitchen staff brought our appetizers, salads and entrees and busboys refilled our water. No one asked if our food was okay, if we wanted another cocktail, etc. The food was okay but not amazing. Our waiter stopped by to ask if we wanted dessert but I was so frustrated I just wanted the check. There are so many amazing options for dining in Chicago, don't waste your time here.
