Good place for steak before theater across from Private Bank Theater. Very vibrant bar scene that makes a quiet dinner not possible. But good food and service.

Crowded with before theater crowd but service was quick and orders delivered promptly. Reservations a must with Hamilton across the street. Noise level a bit challenging but we were lucky enough to secure a booth so that helped. Dinner salad was excellent.

Terrific food at this steakhouse, great menu and reasonably priced even considering the convenient "tourist trap" location opposite a trendy theater. Bone-in Kansas City Strip was surprisingly delicious. Definitely big-league steakhouse here!

We went here before a show largely for the location (Hamilton was playing literally across the street) and not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised both by the depth of the menu offerings and the preparation. Despite the name there's plenty of lighter items on the menu (I had an excellent tuna tartare) Nothing particularly creative, but no miscues. The... More

This is my second visit to this restaurant. Both times service and food were very good. We made reservations, but were early. No problem, the table was ready. It was very busy, Private Bank Theatre right across the street, and Chicago Theatre right down the road, but the staff was on top of everything. The server does immediately ask if... More

So a group of six of us migrated over to the Grillroom after Hamilton and it was initially crowded so the service was a bit slow (understandably)....But: We waited for the rush to end then grabbed a table in the bar area and service somehow for worse? We never really had a server, more of random people checking on us... More

This place was amazing, they knew we had tickets to see Hamilton and were able to get a group of 8 of us fed and out within hour, that's with appetizers, drinks and steaks! the service and food were fabulous, would recommend especially for anyone going to the theater across the street.

After a day at the aquarium and Field Museum, we wanted a good steak dinner in an upscale atmosphere. We almost didn't keep our reservation because of the weather - rainy, high winds and cold. Very glad we took a cab and came anyway. From the scallop appetizer to the steaks to the excellent desserts, the food was wonderful. Wait... More

Sat in bar, 65% empty, but took 10 minutes to get any other human to notice I was there. A wee bit unorganized. Could it be my cologne?!! Ordered onion soup, filet, and grilled. asparagus. Dinner rolls good. Overall food very good.worth a return trip.

Located from the Private Bank Theatre, the staff was great! The drink menu was designed to compliment the popular musical. It included a federalist wine list and specialty drinks including a Brandy Alexander Hamilton! The cheese board is a treat and the creme brûlée can't be beat.
