This was our first visit to Lloyds. We found it perfect for a before the opera meal. Food was very good, freshly prepared and reasonably priced (most entrées were under $25). Menu was quite extensive including appetizers, sandwiches, entrée salads, steak, seafood and homemade deserts (at only $5 for generous portion). Service was fine. Located kiddie–corner to opera house. My... More

My meal, Blackened Salmon, was excellent. The location is very close to Lyric Opera. It is highly recommended.

This was a nice location for a business dinner, near the financial district and commuter trains. We opened with crab cakes and sesame seared yellow fin tuna done sashimi style, those were excellent. Fillets I ordered were good by not great...could have used more blue cheese. They had great tasting Manhattans and found it very easy to have conversations in... More

My family ate here before a show downtown. It was a great find. We received lots of attention, because there were not many others there. It worked out well for us. Nice location too.

Nice ambiance and friendly service. Food was good but the value was outstanding. Just a short walk from Cadillac palace theatre.

I had just arrived in Chicago that day and wanted a nice quiet, dinner to myself within a short walk from my hotel. Lloyds was perfect. The waiter recommended their seafood (though they also had steak, burgers, etc.) and I chose the horseradish Dijon encrusted whitefish which was so good I ate every bite. Also, they had a lovely martini... More

I met my attorney there for lunch to catch up and discuss some business. We were well served by Julie with a smile. The only hiccup was the plain chopped salad that I ordered. First it came with chicken, next it came with bacon, but they did get it right when Chris the manger checked to make sure they had... More

The Chicago loop area offers a vast array of lunch options. Lloyd's is conveniently located on Wacker Drive and offers a spacious outdoor dining area during the summer months. I've been dining at Lloyd's for over 10 years, including their prior location on Madison Avenue. Therefore I have had numerous business and casual lunches here and always receive great service...

Went for a business lunch. The calamari was ok (not great - try Italian Village for that). Everyone (5 people) loved their entrée so I have to give it them for consistency. Seafood salad was pointed out as great. Short ribs very good. I had the fettuccine and it was nicely done (a bit of heat but not too much).... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
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. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
