    We waited 20 minutes from the time of our reservation before we were sat. We checked in with the hostess twice. We had to get our waiter’s attention to order our drinks and food. The dining room was not even full. I had a much better experience for dinner. The food is excellent!!

    We went for brunch. The restaurant was not full but service was very slow! We waited 20min for coffee. And we had to ask multiple times for things like condiments, some of which never arrived. Maybe the staff is still learning/being trained but brunch for two took 2hrs. Food was really good - well prepared and tasty.

    Brunch food was very innovative and tasty. Enjoyed the donuts as an appetizer. Floor under table was a mess with pieces of toast and other foods under our feet. Noise was very loud so we had trouble hearing each other.

    Food was great, drinks were even better. Tuna tartare was an outstanding app choice. We had scallops and Beef Wellington, both impressed and happy with our meals. Service was a bit slow, but our server seemed to have 12 tables, so more of a staffing issue it seemed. Would definitely recommend for date night

    Burrata appetizer was terrific. The Nicoise Salad was also very good. The beef Wellington was unfortunately terrible. It was a poor cut of meat, poorly prepared (virtually no mushroom coating in the crust) and overcooked. They really should just get it off the menu.

    I've been to Willow Room numerous times, always pleased. But I was very disappointed with the food: I had the 1/2 half chicken. Obviously I didn't read the fine print that this was a Cornish hen, not a real chicken. Very surprised how little meat there was. And the taste was....odd. Not really appealing. The Market Salad was great and the cheesecake for dessert was yummy. It was just the main entree that lacked.

    Enjoyed our meal at Willow Room. Three of our party of four had the Monday night $38 three course meal, which was a good deal. The Steak Dianne was very good, flavorful, and cooked as I requested. Also had the mussels appetizer which was also very good as was the cheesecake desert, which was creamy and tasty. Our server was very nice and friendly, though delivery of the meal was a bit slow. The ambience was loud and made it difficult to hold a conversation. The din of other customer conversations was made louder because of the brick walls and high non-acoustical ceiling. The noise level was enhanced by the heavy base background music that didn't add anything positive to our experience. Overall, enjoyed the meal, server was friendly and helpful, but ambience was loud and uncomfortable.

    A nice dining experience. Room is lovely and the service was great. Only thing average was the food. I started with the tuna tartare, which was really avocado with a hint of tuna and the steak Diane, which had the thinnest piece of meat I’ve ever seen. My guest had the Wellington which was very good but the accompaniment were below par.

    Everything we ordered was delicious, from the kale salad that we split to my wife's steak (which was cooked perfectly) and my lobster ravioli (which was decadent and rich). The drinks were also excellent. We ate outside, and although our table was near the HVAC unit, the atmosphere was still charming. The patio is cozy and covered in string lights, and the surrounding view of the Lincoln Park neighborhood was lovely. We will definitely be coming back!
