Excellent food and service, and the bagpipes were an exceptional treat!
Service and food are always great.
This is my favourite Chicago restaurant. Great service, food, beverages, and ambiance. Tonight I had the sea bass special--extraordinary. And I never miss the brussels sprouts, with lardons!! Yummy. White tablecloth, sophisticated service. Makes you feel good.
Always a great experience and quality meal.
Good overall experience. The crabcake was a little weird with the crispy strands around it but was ok.
Never thought I would dine at an RL restaurant and feel like my group was a burden. From the moment we walked in the door we were met with an attitude. We are in Chicago for 3 nights and wish we hadn’t wasted one of them at your restaurant. Hopefully you can learn from this.
My absolute favorite ladies lunch spot. Took my 88 year old mom and our waiter made her feel so special.
Everything went well. Missed Joseph but Seamus and Henry did a great job of filling in. We were well pleased.
We love dining here! Best, most accommodating staff in the city, in an incredibly beautiful room. Oh yeah and the foods awesome!
A great time was had by all!
Great waiter, excellent service.
This was our first time at the RL Restaurant and it was fantastic! The service was impeccable, the food was absolutely delicious, and the ambiance in the restaurant is perfect. They even took notice of my ID and realized my birthday was in a few days, and I got a birthday dessert! This is a restaurant where you truly feel taken care of from the moment you walk in the door until the moment you walk out. I can’t wait to go back!
Repeat visit for me. Love the ambience, location right off the Mag Mile and the burger! Came with a few people after a work cocktail party looking for some real food. Not quite a fancy occasion, and the host was great about finding us a table in the bar area. The service is great, not too stuffy but attentive. Great wine by the glass list, and always love this delish RL burger.
Great vibe, excellent service!
Great ‘Old Fashioned’ cocktails followed by delicious food serviced by a very friendly team. The ambiance is unique making this one of our favourite places in Chicago.
Both Jose Vazquez and Jaaffar Sabbar were superior.
Jaaffar Sabbar connected us to the food and to the RL brand. He went well out of his way to provide exceptional service. We’ll definitely return and ask for Jaaffar.
A perfect evening.
Extensive menu & high quality service
The hostesses and Flavia were terrific. Tom and assistants did a great job and ensured all was wonderful from start to finish. It is so nice for us to have backup for Joseph The Hreat. Tom and Aramis are great backups so we always have a delightful dining experience!!
Loved every sip/bite. I ordered the espresso martini, shrimp cocktail and roasted vegetable pappardelle. Delish!
Excellent as always.
This is our favorite restaurant in the US! We love going to RL on any occasion. Highly recommend you go. the service the food and everything about RL is wonderful!
it's perfect, every time. thank you! AMAZING crab and avocado salad too.
From the time you enter, until the time you leave satisfied, you feel the Ralph Lauren magic! The decor makes you feel you have arrived. The service makes you feel special. The food makes you feel like a king or queen! You won’t be disappointed!
Great atmosphere very chic place to dine anytime
Cozy throw back to the 1970 feel of warmth and cozy restaurant.. sort of wraps it’s arms around you!
Siempre un gran lugar!!!! La decoración y el ambiente con sensación de refinamiento. Accesible de precio y servicio excelente!!!!
Loved my table. Loved the always pro and delightful service. Loved the Bollinger Grande Année (though I definitely didn’t need a champagne 101. got that covered ;)). LOVED that mushroom and kale salad. Made two more lunch reservations for next week!
Excellent wine and beer list! Today enjoyed Moody Tongue Carmelized Chocolate Churro Baltic Porter brewed in Chicago! Delicious! Enjoyed the Clam Chowder! And Chicken Salad!
Something has changed- not sure what.
Fries were really terrible - better available in McDonalds.
Steak and fish were excellent.
Did somebody change the chocolate cake?
Excellent ambiance, great service and the best lake perch in the Midwest!
Excellent food and service.
My friend and I lunch here at least once a month and it never disappoints. See you next month!
Always love RL when in the city
Great place to see and be seen ❤️
Don’t we all want the RL lifestyle
I wrote in our Gold Coast posting requesting what we thought was our favorite restaurant and I posted RL. In the space asking why I said because of Joseph and Flavia plus the other waiters and servers who all make it a great experience. You haven’t dined our until you’ve been served by Joseph!
