    You can never go wrong here because the menu is so vast! Make sure you asked to be seated in the "rotunda room" with a window seat of Michigan Ave

    Try their Beignets and order it ahead of any other orders. Takes about 20 minutes.

    Very affordable, huge portions, you always end up taking some home. The chicken pot pie is great and the salads are really good. The best seats are by the windows looking out on N. Michigan ave.

    Anyone leaving a tip saying to share is foolish. Each get a dish. Then you can try something different.

    If you hate large portions and love vegetables then get the pasta fresca and tell them light on the pasta.....

    The decor and service here are absolutely outstanding while your bill is actually reasonable. Ask for a seat near the window.

    Best seats are in the round room that face Michigan ave! During the colder months the street lights at night time are a gorgeous view!

    Turn around n walk away if there's a wait. Busy = flustered unattentive servers

    I don't care that it's a chain owned by the Cheesecake Factory. The views of Michigan Ave are great, as are the snacks and the cocktails. Perfect place to stop for a bite on a shopping day.

    Corinna P · February 28, 2012
  • Daria

    Good for big groups, extremely touristy. Owned by the same people as cheesecake factory. To be fair, this place is much better though
