Second time dining there in the past few weeks. Have been there multiple times before. This was the worst experience of all. Tables were all full, so was told I could wait or should sit in the bar. Yet, since I was in full view of the desk, a woman came in later and was immediately seated. The food is... More

Selected Petterino's for its convenient downtown location . Early dinner during the week - reservations highly recommended as we had them and still had to wait. Service was very friendly and food was quite good. Our table had a very varied selection, from steak to crab cakes and salmon, all were well prepared and enjoyed. We learned during our meal... More

Was here for lunch and it was very pleasant. Had the shrimp cocktail with two very nice sauces. The salads are enormous, so be warned. Dressings are really good. Decent prices.

So many choices- and all so wonderful. I shared the cannelloni with a friend and was not sorry I did!. My only negative was the house Chianti- which was fair at best. Great desserts in a lovely relaxing setting!

Yes, we had rain, wind, thunder and lightning in Chicago today and were glad not to have far to walk to come across this restaurant with its banquettes and decor of the 40's along with live entertainment (if you go on a Monday), superb food and service as it used to be in the good old days of fine dining....

I love this restaurant! They are always extremely business. (Pre theater? Fuggedaboutit!) But their host staff always does their best to accommodate you as best as they can. The room has that classic feel of a supper club. Loads of locals both at the ample bar as well as dining room. Great cushy booths if you can score one. Super... More

I was in town with friends and we searched online for some dining suggestions and decided to give this place a try. All 3 of us were very happy with the food and the service. It's right in the heart of the entertainment district and filled up fast on Saturday night. I had a pasta dish with sausage and a... More

Early Sunday Brunch before the crowds come in.... this is an excellent place and close to all the major theatres in Chicago. Book early and avoid the crowds. Food varies from seafood, steak and pasta. they offer a Pre-Fix three course meal that saves some money. Have a mimosa or two. Enjoy the meal ! !

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.
