R L Grill is a really fun place to have a meal right in downtown Chicago. We went there for brunch and really enjoyed it. The eggs benedict were especially good, as were their desserts. The atmosphere is very upscale and great. The waiters are really professional.

I had lunch here and had a reservation. I asked for a corner table when I got there but was told they were all reserved. Apparently, those reservations never turned up because when I left, a few corners were still available. That really

The decor in this establishment is wonderful. I felt like I was in a private club. RL obviously set out to create an atmosphere akin to a private club and they accomplished that, right down to the menu. All of the classics are

I decided to stop in on a lark - the restaurant I wanted to visit had closed. Boy am I glad I did. The wait staff were very attentive, the patrons were surprisingly friendly, and the food (scallops) was a revelation. They make a nice

Pros: Everything

RL Chicago is the Ralph Lauren restaurant, and like the designer, the food is traditional, classic, and chic -- with a twist. Their menu is upscale American and very tasty, but beyond the food is the atmosphere. To die for! So rich and warm and comfortable. The decor is as mulitfaceted as the fashion line, including many photos of American icons and symbolic images. Service is impeccible and only adds to the enjoyment. This is a place to sit and savor your meal and the wonderful surroundings!

Went to RL to celebrate a special occasion based on CitiSearch ratings.
Had to wait 45 minutes even with a confirmed reservation, and was thereafter given the
worst table in the house (next to a serving and busboys bay).
