In a city where most restaurants have a lifespan of less than five years, it is heartening, if not surprising, to find such an old-timer. Politicians and business people have been coming here forever, buying each other martinis and waiting to be seated (no reservations are accepted). The seafood is fresh and fabulous and the decor is turn-of-the-last-century. The waitstaff is great, and it's not surprising--some of them have been here more than 30 years!
I read all of the reviews today 10/15/08 and went for lunch.
Food was bland, the atmosphere was loud and noise, the service was not great. I ordered soup which never arrived, they tried to serve me burned bread, the salad dressing was runny and plain old oil. Restaurant may have been there for many years but I won't be going back.
I'd say for the money - Go to the Four Seasons Hotel's Seasons Restaurant. Great service, and food to match - nice ambiance and the servers will attend to your needs/request.
This was a Chicago gangster style restaurant where you'd take someone you wanted to have bumped off!
