This place is a MUST, at least for the burrito;)! But in general a great place for any business meal. The views are great. They have a nice menu across the board. But my review is specifically for my breakfast. I consider myself a "Breakfast Burrito Connoisseur" (if there is such a thing), the BB is my number one choice... More

We had breakfast here while we were guests at the Renaissance Chicago Hotel and the food was fantastic. There were a ton of options that made us truly feel like we were getting value for the price.

The food and service was very good. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The server was very good and attentive. The only drawback was the lighting....way to bright! The lighting killed the ambiance. The food saved the experience.

The food was good. We had a bad server who I think was new but they comp a beer and a side order to make up for it so that was nice. The prices seemed fine for lunch and dinner but a little high for breakfast although the breakfast was quite good. Great coffee and orange juice!

Beautiful view of the river with an excellent wait staff. The grilled cheese was deemed "the best I've ever eaten" by my daughter, and the fig & ham pizza was a real treat.

We were staying at the Renaissance and chose breakfast at the hotel both mornings. In addition to a bright, comfortable dining room, the views of the Chicago River were lovely, the buffet was delicious and our server, Frank, was friendly and attentive. In addition to the usual buffet standards, which were very good, extras included smoked salmon, deli turkey, cheeses,... More

We stayed at the hotel and checked in late, so decided to eat at Great Street on Friday night. The place was empty, so I was concerned about that. The service was overall friendly and efficient.
