The restaurant is beautiful with a romantic view. Quiet and intimate, great for a date night. The food and service is where we had a problem. I ordered steak medium and it was very rare with no salt, pepper or spices. My husband ordered Salmon and it was also to rare. We had a hard time getting silverware to eat with so our frustration with that and then having our food cooked imperfectly was disappointing. I dont mind paying for an overpriced dinner but I do expect perfection when. I do.

This was for my wife’s Bday, we made a special trip to Chicago for the weekend. The only thing that disappointed us was the lack of service. From the time we walked in, I had to search for a greeter. During dinner our waitress left just after serving our entree, I had to find someone to bring us our drink, tab and a Togo box. Not sure what happened but it was pleasant.

This was horrible.

We first came to 16 when it was a fine dining concept, and we loved it.

Our dining on Jan 2, 2020 was our first time with their new concept.
My steak was cold, was not PRIME and therefore not with the price tag. Not even close. It was awful.
My sons steak was ordered Medium Rare. It came to him completely bloody and rare. When asked to have it returned to be warmed up, the server simply said, “thats the style of that steak”. Style and cooking temp (when originally asked by the waiter how he wanted it cooked) doesn’t make sense! Don’t know why the server felt he needed to argue about the temp of the cut if meet. We didn’t order Steak Tartare!!!

Also, when we arrived, there were plenty of open tables that had room for four. The hostess must have been BLIND because she walked us past the open tables with four chars and put us at a table, that only had 3 chairs and was bumping up against another crowded table of people. She then went and grabbed an open chair from one of the open tables and gave it to us. WHY WOULDN’T SHE HAVE PLACES US AT ONE OF THISE OOEN TABLES! There was NO reserve tags on those tables!!! I ended up moving ourselves after asking if we could move. WHAT A JOKE!!!

The service was slow. The food was cold. The people working at sixteen sincerely have no idea what they are doing. Dining at a fine hotel like the Trump indicates that service should be impeccable and done with gratitude and elegance...even in a casual setting. If the Trump family had experienced this, they would have been appalled and everyone would be fired! That would be welcomed!

This was by far one of the worst dining experiences of my life in Chicago and I will NEVER return under this current format, staff and management.

Get a freaking clue. In one word, Sixteen at the Trump...SUCKS. Because their employees don’t have a clue how to serve. Service is an art form and when done right, is something we can all learn from. Not 16!!!

Very disappointed. Service was horrid, and ruined the dining experience. Food was good (not amazing) but the server disinterested. Took forever to get her attention. A dinner for 4 for my husband’s 50th Birthday did not turn out to be special. The server was clueless. We had to ask for bread. She did not offer us any more wine or drinks. Brought the wrong dessert twice. Expensive, which was to be expected yet the service tarnished the atmosphere.
View beautiful- as expected. Sigh.

The food was amazing. Both of us felt it was one of the best meals we have every had (my wife had salmon and I had a NY Strip steak). The setting was peaceful and conducive to conversation. No TVs in this restaurant even though it has a bar! YES! Service was generally very good, but they made one mistake that negatively impacted my experience. The hostess knew we were celebrating a milestone birthday, but it seemed neither of the waiters that served us knew about it. For the price we paid ($220 with tip for two entrees, two salads, one appetizer, one potato side, and two glasses of wine), I expected them not to miss a thing. I really would have liked for them to help me celebrate my wife's birthday by making a point of our reason for being there. I think the hostess should have made sure that our waiters knew that we were there for a celebration.

We were there for Christmas dinner so they had a special fixed price menu. They had a very nice variety for each course which you could pair it with wine, large portions. We were seated on time and the wait staff was attentive. We had cocktails before dinner and they did not skimp on the booze. Afterwards we walked out onto the Terrace overlooking the loop it was lovely. Music was playing in the background. We are looking forward to returning.
