The food was excellent and the service was personal. It was so easy to catch dinner here after watching the Hamilton matinee. The restaurant is located directly across the street from the PrivateBank theater. We had a 5:30 reservation--but probably could have scheduled for 5:15 instead. The house salad was probably the best salad I have ever eaten- delicious!

The service was great, friendly and attentive. I had the scallops appetizer (delicious but too salty) with a side of brussel sprouts (which, though tasty were so charred, I left a lot of the outer leaves behind). The carbonara was also a little too salty for my tastes but it was a huge portion and I plenty for lunch the... More

From the moment we walked in and were greeted by a welcoming smile to the moment we left and were wished a good evening by the host who remembered where we were going, we had a delightful evening. Although the menu isn't huge, there are many excellent selections. My sister and I ordered a salad to share (certainly big enough... More

This was the first time in one of the Grillroom Chophouse and the decor reminded you of the old style restaurants. The restaurant is not very large, so I would make reservations to go there. The waiter who served our table of 12 did a very good job. The food was very tasteful and cook to my liking. I had... More

The location of this restaurant is great if you are attending a play at the private bank theater. It is directly across the street. There is parking under this building as well. The service is exceptional. Our waiter helped us order. And made sure we would be out on time to make our performance. The steaks were some of the... More

Had dinner before Hamilton 12/23. Checked two doorman sized $50 umbrellas with hostess. Leaving for the show, two attendants cannot find them. Stop back after the show and no one around except the bartender. Look again, no umbrellas. Leave for vacation next day. Upon my return on 1/5, I call GM Jennifer (--) to explain the situation. Got pissy "attitude"... More

My wife and I do this restaurant a couple of times a year. The steak is always good. Consistency of food and consistency of service has always been our experience. The mac and cheese dishes are really creamy and the Ahi tuna is really good too.

Perfect place for dinner before we saw Hamilton last night. Convenience was ideal. Parking was just below the restaurant and the show was right across the street. Andy, was about the most friendly and helpful host I have seen, and Nick was very attentive as our waiter. The drinks and food came out very timely, and we never had to... More

Great Staff - Great Meal. We had reservations for 5 pm and that gave us more than enough time for a 7:30 pm show at the Private Bank Theater across the street.
