Staff was friendly, food was great. Plus we loved the convenient of not having to bundle up to go outside in the cold.

The breakfast buffet at the beautiful Hilton hotel includes made to order eggs and omelets, good coffee, a bounty of fresh fruit and baked goods, meats, a variety of juices (not "fresh squeezed", though) and excellent service. There was a traditional Chinese breakfast offered as well as a gluten free breakfast bar. Staff is welcoming, friendly, but not intrusive. It... More

Had Lunch & Breakfast there. Average North American. I had the same server on occasions. Great service. Wish there was some way of recognizing her to the management.

While the game was on the television over the bar, the sound was not overpowering the ability to hold a comfortable conversation at one of the tables nearby. Very good selection of wines, liquors and liqueurs for any taste. We could have stayed longer in that setting, but we ran out of time to enjoy the atmosphere.

Close the the lobby elevators making it very convenient to stop there and pick up a drink on the way back to the room OR pick up breakfast on the way out.

The server was impolite, he seemed to take offense that I decided to skip the buffet and order some oatmeal and fruit. I had to stop two other servers to bring milk and help to get the check. The restaurant was busy but it wouldn't hurt you to polite.

720 South Bar and Grill serves up a great breakfast buffet in the morning that will get anyone's engines started in the morning. You are greeted with a smile and great service from the host/hostess station, which continues on with the entire wait staff. Tremendous service! Then comes the food. There is an omlette station where you choose from a... More

This Hilton Hotel restaurant on Michigan Avenue was one of the only places open when I landed after 10 PM Sunday. While it was "open" it turned out to only have three items at that time of day, just sandwiches. Had I been given an accurate description I would not have wasted my time and appetite, but I did order... More

We stopped in 720 South Bar after a long morning and flight our first day of a week's conference. The breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful! There were many options, even made to order omelets. The restaurant is conveniently located within the hotel.
