Food excellent HOWEVER when we arrived for our 5:30 reservation, after walking around Chicago for 5 hours, they would NOT seat us at our table (our daughter had to work that day and her train was stuck on the track over the river). We would have sat, ordered appetizers, spent money...and the wait staff was NOT busy at that time. Extremely unhappy, receptionist rude, no exceptions...then, great wait staff UNTIL they decided we needed to leave...reaching over us to grab our napkins from under our hands, taking all of our glasses, not filling water...NO SMILES once they decided we needed to leave. Rude. We travel the world, eat out all the time, we are nice to people, tip well...never treated so rudely. And we were at our table for 1 hour 45 minutes, so not all night long :) And we dropped $300 for 4 meals. One positive: Food Awesome :) More

the food was great. The quiet dining room was wonderful for us. the service was not quite up to snuff in my opinion. Two guests arrived early and already had their wine. When the rest of us were seated, no one came over to make sure the rest of us had wine ordered. We then ordered a bottle of white and there was no interaction from the service staff about who wanted it or not. Then when we were ready to order our meal, we had to flag down a waiter to ask for specials and place our orders. And the restaurant was not at all full at that point. Thanks for your attention.

Felt fin and swanky, perfect for the low-key celebration we were having. The service was a little lacking, it was great in the beginning but after an hour we felt forgotten about. Three tones we had to ask someone to find our server so we could order more and once I had to go to the bar bc our drink orders arrived completely wrong. If the ambience, food, and cocktails weren’t so great, we wouldn’t come back. But hopefully the server was having an off night bc everything else was fantastic. More

The food...... WOW everything was really great but I have to talk about this duck fried rice....WHO KNEW. It was perfect all around. The rice and duck was the perfect amount of crispy and came w a great assortment of veggies in there. Highly enjoyable meal. I will be back I had the mule for a cocktail and it was also perfection.

Marchesa was a luxurious experience from start to finish. The room is beautiful-classic, yet whimsical. The food was outstanding, beginning with a decadent caviar parfait, followed by scallops with potato puree, mushroom duxelles, béchamel and gruyere. European elegance sets Marchesa apart from all of the other great restaurants Chicago has to offer. More

My reservation asked for the quietest possible seating for two. We were greeted with a delightful table on the landing near the (apparently unused) elevator. Was it perfectly quiet? No. But this is an Irish pub, so you can hardly expect that. It was definitely the quietest corner around. I was thrilled to find a Red Breast 12 year old pure pot still Irish whiskey on the menu. But saddened to learn they were out. :( Everyone has shortages from time to time. What makes or breaks an experience is how you recover. Mary-Kate (our server) brought the sad news along with a taster of Green Spot -- about the closest comparable thing you can find in the market to the whiskey I ordered. Unfortunately, it's not really to my taste. Her next visit also brought Shane (the manager) bearing multiple other offerings for me to sample and select from. We chatted and he delivered yet one more selection after a few moments. They found an option to satisfy my ridiculously picky palate and did it with a smile. Then our food began to arrive. Fried goat cheese with jalapeno honey as an appetizer. Light and tasty and just the way you would like it. The shepherd's pie was above average -- while the accompanying kale and barley side salad was phenomenal! My wife's salmon risotto made with barley was similarly raved about. We finished off with a Guinness ice cream sundae. A great date evening and will definitely go again! More
