Great night view, great waiter, and great food.
However, we had a HORRIBLE service from the woman who was in charge of reservations.

We actually complained about the incident to the manager, and we were able to talk to that woman.

Yes the view is very nice, (more on that in a sec) and the food isn't bad. But, two different employees, one at check in, referred to us as 'guys'. (We are a middle aged couple, and my wife is clearly not a 'guy) Topping that off,

This place is nice, but incredibly expensive. The view while you dine is nice, but the view from the Signature Lounge is arguably better, and the appetizers and drinks sold in the lounge end up damaging your wallet a lot less than the restaurant. I recommend going out to eat somewhere reasonably priced, then hitting up the Signature Lounge for drinks afterward if you just want to place to sit and enjoy the lovely lights of the Chicago skyline.

This is one of my favorite places to take out-of-towners. The view of the city is incredible! I have only had drinks here and (as you might imagine) they are not cheap, but they are strong so I think it's worth it.

Why would you serve cold guacamole? I'm not talking room temp, i'm talking COLD. It's a sign that it's not fresh, otherwise why would it need to be in the fridge? My boyfriend and I ordered the guac and chips along with drinks- the waitress was very nice. The view was very nice. The annoying tourists taking a MILLION pictures were awful. I had a coffee with Balieys, which was good and had a mound of whipped cream on it.

If you are in Chicago and want a fantastic view of the city without having to wait in the long lines at the Sears Tower Observatory and want a good meal, head here. I went for lunch which is reasonably priced and a good menu was offered.

Never thought I would have the nerve to go up 96 floors, but I am so glad my family talked me into it. People say it is something you "MUST " do while in Chicago....how true that is. The view is awesome, best view IS in the ladies room.

You really are paying for the view. I think it is a much better view than the Sears Tower and the Sunday brunch is decent enough if you go hungry so you can eat enough. Lunch and dinner otherwise is very expensive and each item is pricey
