    Fodors, one of our professional reviewers, says, "The caviar platter is served on a stunning coral display and the 14-course prix-fixe menu ... is enough luxury to make anyone feel like royalty." Read more

    Tasting menu and service were excellent. The monkfish and the squash soup--mmmm. Truffles made an appearance in many dishes, which I loved. Save room for extra complimentary dessert!

    I would say unfortunately not worth the price, though some interesting presentation and good dessert

    Sorrel and Buttermilk, a dish that resembles a terrarium, is one of the first things Tru serves on its $158 tasting menu. Read more

    Opt for the 7-course instead of the full tasting menu - all of our favorite dishes were on there.

    Do the tasting menu with wine paring!!! One of the best meal I've had in Chicago

    Without a doubt, the most unique food presentation I have ever seen at a restaurant. The 3 plus hour experience is worth it for special occasions. A+ Service and taste.

    The semi-private table over the lounge is absolutely incredible. This is the way to enjoy TRU.

    Go for the tasting menu! It's particularly awesome when you blow your points from LEYE. Great, choreographed service. Amazing !

    Classy dining with a unique twist, TRU not only features artistic dishes, but also features works by world-renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and the like; be sure to look around!

    Absolutely spectacular dining experience. Chef Anthony Martin amazes you with every plate. Chef's tasting menu and Valentine's Day tasting menu were both fantastic. Wine list includes 1800 selections!

    Modern meets Midwestern at this chic Chicago restaurant that marries French techniques to local ingredients.

    This high-end spot has the traditional fare (caviar, tartare) as well as a wide variety of creative new dishes: Moroccan-spiced Scottish salmon with Meyer lemon and Israeli couscous is a recent fave.

    Gale Gand makes the most amazing desserts; go with anything chocolate, especially her Chocolate Pots de Creme with Salted Caramel Sauce and Black Pepper Whipped Cream. Just delicious.

    Overall, a decent experience. I have 2 prime gripes, however. 1) I don't think anyplace is worth $150 per person for food. That's obscene. 2) Frenchie maitre d' is a major snob. Jacket required. Read more

    Do the tasting menu and wine parings. Plan 3-4 hours, a fantastic culinary experience.
