This is one of my favorite places in Chicago. It is better than Sardi's in New York.

Everything was terrific. If I would have known that would be my last time at Petterino's for a couple of weeks I would have been more appreciative. Petterino's remains one of my most favorite restaurants in the City and my "go to" restaurant before a play.

Kudo's to everyone at Petterino's.

See you soon.

Tracy the hostess is the best , she greets everyone with a big smile, makes everyone feel like they are very important and I have seen customers yell at her but her affect never changes

Very touristy spot, food was okay but courses came out too quickly. Lots of overlap between salad and entree. We were not in a rush to go a theatre show (which I presume some guests are)- would have been nice if the waitress asked so we didn’t feel rushed

Everything was great. Chicken piccata was a hit, and the atmosphere was perfect. Pace of service was ideal for making the opera on time. Thanks again.

Great service and wonderful meal! Reservation was ready and we were seated immediately. Atmosphere was very nice, but a little frantic as servers are tasked with getting theater goers out for performances at various start times. We’ve been to Petterino’s many times and always enjoy it!

Servers were friendly and service was fast (helps pre-theater). Both menu selection and food quality were meh. (One exception: my wife's soup was really good.) The main thing it has to offer is proximity to the Goodman (you don't even have to go outside) and relatively few other good options nearby. Also there are some great caricatures. Other than that, eminently missable for dinner; may be a better option for post-theater drinks.

The crab cake appetizer was good but not as good as I expected. Our meal was excellent.
