Shanghai Terrace is always a great dining experience and doubly so during the holidays, when the Peninsula Hotel is tastefully decorated. Dim sum is brilliant as an appetizer here, this time I chose the Lobster with dark truffle dumplings while my companion went for her favorite duck fois gras dumplings. In the quest for something new on New Year's Day, I opted for Chilean Sea Bass Szechuan which came with the fish encrusted in a seared layer of the famous hot sauce. Every time, the food and the team step up for a great experience and lived up to their reputation again! All the best! More

Sushi | Gold Coast / Streeterville, Chicago

I have been a few times and the food has never disappointed. However, I recently went for my birthday on a Sunday night. There weren't many people in there, but the staff decided it would be a good idea to dim the lights to the point of the restaurant almost being pitch black. I have terrible eyesight and so does my mum and her friend she brought along. It isn't easy for us to look at the menu or know what exactly is in our food dish. My mum literally had to use the flashlight on her phone to see. We are used to it obviously, but honestly, there were three tables seated and the staff laughed at my mum, but they could have turned on the lights. The staff claimed it was "romantic", but it really isn't. My mum and I had ordered the Bangkok-style Stir Fry w/ Chicken, mine without mushroom and chili peppers and my mum's without chili peppers. The server maybe wasn't paying attention, or the cook wasn't because those ingredients were still in our dishes when they arrived, so our dishes were extremely spicy and difficult to eat. We boxed up our food and left. More

i used to stay here back in the day (90s) when it still had the operators in the elevators and they had the best sunday brunch in all chicago. So it had been that long since i even walked through the door and boy i was surprised with all the festive activity in the lobby and even the stairs going up to the lobby. Christmas was certainly at the Drake. Nicely classily decorated with people waiting for holiday tea in the BIG dining room amongst people waiting on photo ops around the big christmas trees. THe Camille Room which is where are 4 course Christmas lunch took place was in the same space that used to be called the Palm Room and was where the Sunday Brunch took place with windows overlooking Michigan Avenue. We were seated and our server immediately came over and asked our preferences and then the lunch began. The lobster bisque was great..nice fish flavor with a asiago chip melting slowly on top..then the deconstructed Waldorf salad was great..light...but refreshing with all the components married perfectly...the rolls served were asiago crusted as well and very good..then we opted for the prime rib course instead of walleye...The prime rib was perfectly med rare and i swear was the best i ever had, the flavor and tenderness of the meat far surpassed when i had previously had and i even had leftovers to take home as the size was enough for two people to share. The dessert bar was fun. Lots of options for everyone of all ages...even a shelf with various candy for kids to make a mixed bag...gummy bears, peppermints and gum balls, tootsie rolls, starburst...as well as christmas cookies and triffles and cakes and even cake pops..very good lunch...Bravo to the Drake..even had carollers going around and singing.
