    If you're looking for a private dining experience, schedule your reservation for the exact time that a show starts at the theater next door!

    312 is a great place to go for any meal in the heart of downtown Chicago. The tortellini brodo is a great light lunch option.

    Highly recommended eggs benedict and excellently crispy breakfast potatoes.

    I always seem to have good luck with the fish at 312. Most recently I ate salmon - crispy crunchy on the outside, medium rare on the inside. Yum!

    Don't go here if Kosher or you'll be disappointed. All but one menu item had pork or shellfish, and they won't substitute with most items because a lot of their sauces are premixed with pork in them.

    The service is excellent! Braised lamb chop special was the best I have had! Sous Chef who prepared them was great to talk to as well!

    Appetizers and wine are great. The cooks need to lay off on the salt and butter for the entrees, and the place would be amazing.

    The halibut and cauliflower mash were succlent choice. Olive tempanade and bread first course nice treat with wine. This place is a must try before a show!

    Try the Orecchiette Tartufate. Mild Italian sausage, wild mushrooms, black truffle paste and fontina cream sauce. Worth getting off a diet for.

    Overpriced specials and slow service. Great location not worth the $$$.

    Mention nutmeg in November and get a free appetizer.

    An Italian restaurant in the heart of the Loop where dogs are welcome on the patio. Dogs even get complimentary doggie vitamin water.

    Good stop, a bit pricy, if you're in the theater district.

    Private Wine Room on second floor is fab - great view, quiet and intimate for small-to-medium party.
