RL never disappoints! Excellent food and warm ambiance. Best place in Chicago for champagne and burger! See you next time.
Corner table was great! Best to book in advance on OT. Soft shell crab, lobster roll and the liver were amazing! Service always great.
Delicious food while feeling like your in your cozy living room! Service was great!
The restaurant was bustling. Very busy, very noisy. It was difficult to get attention of a waiter or a busboy.
The food, however, was delicious. I’ve had the steak salad for lunch before but this one was outstanding. My friend said she had the best club sandwich ever. Yummy desert of brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
The food is great. The scene can be Is frenetic. Not the place to go for a quiet relaxing lunch.
As always the restaurant was busy at lunch, but the service was excellent. The menu has changed a bit: the chopped vegetable salad made me feel like I was sitting in a garden on a summer day. Fresh, colorful, delicious. Love RL.
Great Place. Awesome food . Outstandig Service. As always
We had a business celebration at the restaurant. We told the wait staff that we wanted the chef to bring out his best meals. with a little guidance for preferences, we had the best meal in Chicago. It was busy but the service was unequaled. The food was high quality and the atmosphere was lively.
We always love this place for lunch (or dinner)! The food is good, staff attentive and ambiance lovely.
RL is always amazing!!! Great service, martinis, menu. We love it there!
One of my favorites! Old school ambiance and service but rivals today's new age restaurants.
Outstanding service, food and atmosphere. Perfect for special occasion or celebration.
Service and food were outstanding. The initial greeting was underwhelming. The greeter was preoccupied and not friendly.
The rest of the staff made up for her.
Love this place! So lush and decadent! Definitely a treat!
We love everything about this restaurant. It is an absolute must when we are in Chicago!
The Chicago Ralph Lauren Restaurant is so much better and far less pretentious and fake than the NY restaurant and the food is much better too. Skip NY and Paris and enjoy a wonderful experience in Chicago at the original RL Restaurant
Birthday dinner for a friend
The food at RL was very well prepared and very tasty. The temperature in the dining room was stiflingly hot. Very uncomfortable.
Service warm and efficient it at times over attentive. Superb atmosphere though a little compressed. Food was delicious with no complaints though my veal chop was slightly undercooked. Wine list unexciting and there is a dearth of whites. Feels good but not for the gourmand.
RL Bar is a lovely, elegant and appealing restaurant. One of the best spots in town!
Excellent ambiance, service, cuisine. And incredibly consistent year after year. A must. Feels like you are a member of a high class club in London
RL is an institution in Chicago - can’t go wrong always good
Just too noisy for a nice visit with a friend 's Birthday. Outside would have been OK except it was cold and rainy.
RL is a wonderful choice for an evening out in Chicago. It is a beautiful setting, modern but based in the best traditions of fine dining. The menu offers a nice range of plates all beautifully prepared. The service is attentive and gracious.
The restaurant overall was wonderful. The food was delicious, but the waiter talked too fast, hard to understand.
Service was impeccable! Food fantastic. Loved the Liver and Onions and the Crab Avocado salad.
Very accommodating and excellent service
Above and beyond. The entire team did an exceptional job. Lucas did an excellent job, along with the maitre'd, the server assistants, the GM and the hostesses. The room is stunning, the shellfish platter was incredible in both flavor and presentation. The arugula and pancetta was a perfect mid course. The bone in Prime Ribeye and the crab cake were a dream. Perfectly executed, elegant, gracious and genuine hospitality. I will be dining here during every visit to Chicago!
1st Anniversary , they did a great job!
Another meal that did not disappoint. This restaurant is on my list every time I am in Chicago.
Classic RL vibe. Feels like a Good food, good
Staff food ambience best in town..
My son oysters, beef tartare, filet & Tuna..the ambiance & service amazing (as always) and the company tremendous. Always a fabulous time at RL. A MUST in our City!!
Fantastic food and location!
Average food at exorbitant prices in a lovely room.
We love this place. Outstanding food all service. Very friendly. Place
My first time to RL for dinner (have been there many times for lunch).....the service was not great...not enough staff and staff was definitely the “B” team opposed to the lunch staff. Will absolutely return for lunch but not for dinner.
The food was amazing. A little disappointed that the baked brie was currently off the menu but food made up for it. Server was a bit busy but the manager made up for it by staying attentive as he seemed overwhelmed. Overall great night and good food this is always a stop for us when we stop in Chicago.
Love this restaurant and especially the bar area. The staff is amazing, Russell made our experience that much better and I just want to be a “regular” at this local spot, where everyone knows your name!
Met a girlfriend for lunch. Great ambiance and menu. The chopped veggie salad is incredible!
