What an amazing room. It is so elegant and the food so good I couldn't believe it. The prices were very reasonable. We went for lunch and shared a steak salad. The steak was done perfectly to medium rare and was served with a tasty...More

I had matinee tickets to see Hamilton. I was shopping through Macy's and decided to take a look at the Walnut Room while I was in town for the day. After looking at the beautiful room and thinking back a few decades ago, I decided...More

Because of our wonderful experience two years ago, I took my group of 30 students and parents to the Walnut Room again. I love patronizing a place where the staff obviously enjoys their work, and that is the case here! Our servers were cheerful and...More

The Walnut Room is a huge casual sit down restaurant inside Macy's State Street Chicago. It has a fancy ambience but the price is affordable. I loved the way they entertained my son. Aside from the art materials that all restos give, they staged a...More

I used to think that O'Brien's restaurant on North Wells Street served the best chicken pot pie in Chicago. But when O'Brien's closed last December to make room for a boutique hotel, my wife and I began a search for the "second best" chicken pot...More

Not too crowed on a weekend when there are NO Holidays in sight. Seemed empty and sad to not be what it used to be. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all those 'feel good' times will need a reservation, for sure. Use your choice of online reservations,...More

Long wait for a table. Food is decent for the price. Great decor, staff were nice. My biggest qualm is that they don't have a traditional style bar. With the wood and some granite it would make an awesome fit.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

I will be in town next week and I have a teacup chihuahua that I bring with me everywhere, I carry him in a dog purse. I know Macy's says they allow dogs in the store but I was wondering if I'm allowed to bring him with me for lunch at the walnut room as long as he behaved and stays in his dog purse? Thank you, Michelle

Is there discount parking if you dine in the Walnut Room for lunch?
