I probably doesn't matter since it's closing soon but.....it's tired. I cannot recommend. If our thin male waiter had been friendlier and/or proficient it would have gone a long way toward an enjoyable dinner. As it turned out he was disinterested and inattentive. The food...More

I find it amusing to review Tru right after Billy Goat. Worlds apart. For the price of a full meal at Billy Goat I can not recall a single item on the Tru menu that costs less. If you eat and drink fast you might...More

I came with my wife for our anniversary. As soon as you enter the restaurant its like you're walking into another world, where you'll spend the next 2.5 hours. We had the prix fixe menu + cheese board. The food portion of the experience was...More

I would prefer going to Blackbird than Tru for a 2 star Michelin. Service and food overall were all up to expectation but felt something was missing. Too formal and heavy atmosphere (which could be just my preference) was rather overwhelming than the food itself.

This was definitely a special occasion dinner. Big celebration. Shocking bill and I don't regret a penny. We enjoyed four different types of caviar served up beautifully with the typical accompaniments. Each type served in 10oz serving. Perfect to try several types. Not cheap. The...More

This is a great place to go for a very special (and expensive) occasion. The atmosphere is "tres haute" and the food is mostly excellent. The Prix Fixe menu is a delight to the palate with much very pleasing diversity. You get a series of...More

Of course my expectations were high. I've been to many Michelin star places around the world, and Tru has been awarded 2...so it should be pretty amazing. To start with, I have celiac disease and need to be gluten free. I let them know that...More

Alinea has lots of press. I'll have to assume that it is well-deserved, but I couldn't get in. As an alternate, the Michelin-starred Tru is a very good choice. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings and really enjoyed it. The service was...More

Nearby
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
