I came here for a business dinner when my colleague said that this is his favorite restaurant in the ORD area. I was surprised that my super-foodie colleague would say that about a chain restaurant. I think I need to change my perception of chains. This place is spectacular! My french onion soup was perfection with the melted cheese. My... More

Ate here for a business dinner in February. Very helpful and informed staff. A little slow to get the party going but they made up for it in excellent service and attention to our group of eight. The cocktails were delicious, especially the Belvedere Martinis...very slightly dirty. Try them!

Very nice looking restaurant and went with a friend for a Light Lunch. Ordered seared Tuna sallad ($27!!) which looked very nice but was very hot, nobody told me it is hot. When starting eating I got a lot of fresh parsley in the sallad, not very good and definitely not tasty. Meny was short not very inspiring and not... More

I came here for my birthday celebration, this is one of Chicago's upscale restaurant. We were met at the door by a valet, who opened our car door for us when we arrived. The food was fantastic, seasoned to perfection. I didn't like the sauce that came with the lamb chop, our server replated my meat, so that I wouldn't... More

Wow never had this place before. I would love to bring business clients here for dinner. Great classic atmosphere with amazing steak. Cooked to perfection. We also had appetizers of crab cake and calimari. Both delicious. The filet was delicious.

...but you can't really go wrong with any of them. I prefer Capital Grille because of their shredded Brussel sprouts salad and tuna entree. Try for a booth if you're a party of four or less as it can get a bit noisy and the booths insulate you a bit from the noise and give you privacy. The bar is... More

Always delivers on great service and good food. We have gone here for many special occasions and I have yet to have a bad meal. My favorites are the fillet mignon, lobster Mac, truffle fries and desserts. They waiters always find a way to make a special occasion you celebrate special.

I had a layover in Rosemont/Chicago and wanted to have an enjoyable dinner that was nearby. The waiter and staff were extremely helpful and nice. I had the tenderloins topped with buttered lobster, lobster bisque, and lobster mac n' cheese. As the title of my review hints, there was tons of lobster in every dish I got. I don't believe...
