My friend and I had a lovely lunch, celebrating our birthdays. Our server, Christina, was the best server I have ever had, anywhere, period!!!!!. She was attentive, and kept checking on us to see if we needed anything. She mad our lunch extrra special.
ALL that you asked me to evaluate was Fabulous ... 5 stars for every thing.
I was disappointed. We have been to Sam and Harry's about 10 times and several times on New Years Eve and this is the first time we have been disappointed with our meal.
We arrived on time for our 8 pm reservation and there were 8 groups waiting in line to talk to the hostess to be seated. Both hostesses would leave the podium to look at the tables to see what was a available. It was 20 minutes before we could even check in with the hostess.
Service continues to be slow. We didn't order until 8:45. Our first course didn't arrive until 9 pm. We both ordered the fixed price 6 course meal thinking it would be easier and quicker.
Butternut squash soup and crab cakes were excellent. I didn't like the salad, but that was probably a matter of taste and not the quality of the salad.
My Wife had a filet which was very good. I had the lamb chop which was small and undercooked. It was supposed to be medium and was rare to medium rare.
I didn't like the dessert which was a gelatin in a champagne glass.
I think the problem was that they were not ready for a full house.
We went here because a friend gave a gift certificate that expired in 12/30. We went on 12/30 at 630p. Because of the day before NYE no one was dinning. One other table was eating. And one other came later. So the ambiance wasn’t there. The place was beautiful though. The service was spectacular. Being so empty you’d think they over serve but they showed up only at the perfect times. The food was delicious and well prepared. A little pricey for the portions received. It was a quiet dinner, but we are glad we went.
The atmosphere is amazing, food is delicious. Staff wonderful
Not a very good experience for a Christmas dinner. Not enough servers.
My small family and I certainly appreciated the staff working on Christmas Day to accommodate us so that we could get together for a meal. The food was good, however, we would have liked the opportunity to be able to choose from both the lunch and dinner menus, especially since it was a special occasion holiday and not just a regular lunch during the week. Because we went at 1 o'clock in the afternoon we only were able to select from the lunch menu. Also, adding a cocktail list in addition to the wine list would be helpful. Either way, we had a nice time...thank you!
We were pleasantly surprised with the restaurant. Ambiance, service and food was as good as any high end fine dining in chicago. The noise level was perfect for conversation and we felt very comfortable just having a drink after dinner and talking. A really great experience
Best steaks!!!! We could have used more octupus in that octopus appetizer. Our server was outstanding.
Convenient location for breakfast
Wonderful service and excellent food
The entire experience was absolutely phenomenal. Chef Drew came out at least 3 times to our table to check on us and make sure we had absolutely everything. The staff even greeted us with Veuve Croquet at the start of the meal. Experience was one for a lifetime. Now- the food! We cannot say anymore- it was beyond fine dining and every taste was too good to be true. We had our wedding at the venue and celebrating our anniversary here: Chef surprised us with an entire 6” wedding cake just like our wedding day! We were blown away!!!! Thank you to the entire Renaissance staff for making this such an over the top, unforgettable, special, surprise experience for us!!!
It’s a beautiful restaurant! Food was good we enjoyed
One of the few hotel restaurants I don’t mind going to. The hotel looks nice and the location of the restaurants fits well within the overall atmosphere of the location. Everyone enjoyed their selection of entrees and the service was impeccable
The food, service and ambiance were perfect. We’ll be back.
Limited buffet, but it was good.
Service was great, food was just okay and the drinks were very weak. Overall time with our friends was the best part. Unfortunately, we won’t be making this place a regular for us.
Excellent food, excellent services and very stylish interior
Service is not as good as previous visits. Waitress might be new and not as attentive. Felt like a low end restaurant this time.
Highly recommend. Food and service was excellent!
Great anniversary dinner
Very nice restaurant with top notch service. The food was excellent (lobster bisque and Ribeye). I recommend it!
We had a delightful dinner with great service. The steaks were amazing, the lamb shank even more delicious. The mushrooms are "can't miss". While not inexpensive, this place is just as good as some of the highest priced steak houses around with nicer ambience. We will be back when in the area.
It was cooked the way we asked - medium but it was very chewy.
I chose this restaurant as it was connected to the hotel I stayed at with my significant other for our 1 year anniversary, I am so glad we dined here. The staff was super friendly! Our hostess right away knew why we were there and what we requested (as I specified through the OpenTable app), without even looking at her screen, it really added a personal touch! After seating us, we were served by such a friendly waitress, Melissa. She was very helpful, gave great recommendations on the food and drinks and everything came out amazingly! The food was delicious, served just the way we wanted. They also gave us a complimentary piece of cake congratulating us on our 1st anniversary, it was great. Lastly, the staff signed and gave us a greeting card congratulating us as well, which made my significant other and I really feel special. This staff truly gave us one of the best dining experiences we have ever had and made it a memorable anniversary dinner for us, we certainly plan on coming back. Thank you to the staff, the chefs and cooks for such an amazing time that we will never forget!
Wait staff was friendly and professional. Service was efficient. We had a lovely time and never felt rushed.
Beautiful dining room
Excellent food and service
Very pleased with my choice at the Renaissance Schaumburg. i rate it as one of the best hotel restaurants i have dined at and I am a very frequent traveler. Enjoyed their Onion Soup to open with and an awesome Whole Branzino ,crispy outside and soft and moist inside. Too full to enjoy a dessert,but a Johnny Walker Black helped enhance the dining experience . Forget the mall chains and an Uber ride and dine here.
A wonderful meal great quality at affordable price. A wonderful end to a perfect weekend!
It was okay. “Shared” side dishes were really small, steak was cold.
Very nice meal. Asparagus was great as was the rib eye. Not overly expensive. They gave us a card signed by the staff for our anniversary and free dessert. Will definitely return.
excellent dining experience!
Have eaten here twice in the past few months. Really good steaks, good service, nice atmosphere. Will return.
Great place to have a business lunch. Quiet, good food (salmon is amazing) and the service is always 5 star. Great staff. Thanks
Good food. Not great service. Restaurant was empty. 20-30 open tables. Server rushed us so she could close her tickets. Busboy took our drinks away without offering a refill or asking.
Crab cakes too aalty
Nice out of the way place. Every time we bring someone there, they ask how in the world did you find this place. A great place to have dinner or lunch...........highly recommend !
