Pre/post Theatre
Our chefs serve contemporary and traditional Italian dishes using seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Our extensive wine collection, featuring more than 200 American and Italian wines, is displayed throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms. At the bar, enjoy superb spirits and wines by the glass representing a duality of American and Italian varietals.

312 Chicago is centrally located the Loop Theater and Financial District. Every room offers iconic city views including City Hall, the Thompson Center, the Board of Trade and the Cadillac Palace Theater. The ambiance evokes the comfort and sophistication of a 1930’s supper club, but the style is pure, modern elegance with rich walnut wood and dramatic chandeliers.

Delicious food. Love the unique menu choices! Brussel sprout appetizer and squash tortelloni were both decadent - tasty flavor combos. Service was excellent. Would definitely return!

We had a party of 11 on a Saturday night. We were placed in a nice area, and were not "cramped" at all. The service was impeccable, start to finish. The appetizers were excellent--the calamari was magnificent. Everyone loved the pastas. The filet was one of the best I have ever eaten. It was only $35...at any other steakhouse in Chicago it would have been $55-60. We had a GREAT evening.

Food and service were great. Been there several times and highly recommend it. I was a little concerned when they seated us in the bar but it worked out with no real difference from upstairs.

Did the pre fix meal and it was fabulous as well as economical by large city standards. Also did the wine pairing which was well done. Not a fan of Moscoto that was served with dessert but that was on us not the restaurant. After seeing Hamilton that afternoon it was the perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday weekend. Looking forward to returning.

Always a pleasure! Great food, service and ambiance.312 has the best staff......we are always greeted like cherished friends. Salvador took great care of us. 312 is our go-to pre Opera dining spot. No one else in the neighborhood compares.

The food is consistently average. The only benefit of eating here is its proximity to the Cadillac Pqlace Theater.

The service was excellent. My group of friends had a lot of catching up to do so we lingered over lunch and were never pressured to leave early. I really appreciate that.

Service was very fast and food was good. It suits our needs as pre theater dinner. My only complaint is that the booths are so tight that you can barely squeeze in.

This is my husband and my favorite restaurant. Unfortunately my husband passed this past May and it was difficult to go without him. I did go back in August and they were so very very kind to me. My sister-in-law is in town and so I took her and we both had a wonderful time. She could not believe how great the food and the service was. They still remember my husband and I coming there and they miss him also. I will be back before Christmas.

Went in with several friends and we were running late for an event. The waitress was fantastic and succeeded in getting us out in time to make it to our event. The food was delicious and the drinks were great. Will definitely be returning.

A great restaurant for a date night. This was our 10 year wedding anniversary and they treated us to a piece of cake. The waiter was very nice. Never have a half full glass of water as the staff works full it up promptly.

Anytime I am in Chicago and stay at the Kimpton Allegro I try to visit your restaurant. It is always a great experience and well worth the money. My guests always seem to enjoy as well.
