Steakhouse | Gold Coast / Streeterville, Chicago

Our party of four had dinner here on a Saturday night. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the food. We mostly had various steaks and all were prepared just as we wanted. The ambiance was typical for high-end steakhouses. The tables were spaced well apart. A small child who was also part of our party was looked after and some dishes suitable for her were brought out. All in all, we were very pleased with the experience and I would highly recommend the restaurant for either a business or personal celebratory meal. More

One of Chicago's outstanding "little gems". The food and service are outstanding there. Every few months the chef offers up new specials which are really tasty- one of the latest ones is the Halibut with cauliflower puree, braised kale and a blueberry sauce. The pasta and pizzas are also outstanding. Try it, I guarantee you will like it. Harold More

Brunch at Somerset is one of my favorites, but the dinner menu has never especially appealed to me as a non-seafood eater. I will say, though, that you can still find plenty delicious food to eat, including the prosciutto pizza and potato side; so good. A bonus is the delicious rolls they bring to start. More

Celebrating our anniversary, I wanted a really special dinner in an elegant and romantic setting. The Lobby was awesome!

Service was outstanding....attentive but not intrusive. The ambiance couldn't have been better. THANK YOU to the wonderful friendly helpful staff at THE LOBBY! Dining at The Lobby made a special evening even better! More

It was a lovely dinner and evening. The only reason for the low marks on service and ambiance was that we were never asked if we wanted another cocktail and it is very dark. A bit more lighting would make it a bit more enjoyable instead of having to use an iPhone flashlight. We would recommend and return for the delicious cuisine! More

All of the food since its first day has been excellent. The staff is wonderful and remember us since we live in the neighborhood. The drinks are crafted properly and they carry my favorite tea, Rare Tea Cellars. The desserts are so wonderful. You can't go wrong picking any one of them. Andrew was our server and was excellent!!! Unfortunately, Booth One will be closing at the end of June, 2019. We will miss it, as it is one of the few restaurants in our area and it is a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, bringing its reputation and great food. More
