We ate here on a Sunday evening and then again the next Monday morning. Husband said his sea bass was excellent and I thought my scallops were very good. For some reason the waiter tried to discourage me away from those, saying something about the squid ink pasta was "strong" and when I asked what he meant, he said, "fishy."... More

Don't you just love it when the waiter keeps filling your glass with water without having to be summoned? That might seem insignificant in the course of a three-course dinner in a high-end restaurant. But it all adds up. Dinner at 312 Chicago is a very enjoyable experience. Located at 136 North La Salle Street in the Hotel Allegro, it... More

Lovely restaurant, enhanced by courteous staff. Our waiter was very personable & took good care of us by including a portion of an item to share when I couldn't decide between two items on the menu! My companions enjoyed their Bloody Mary's and their meals as well. Great location and will definitely visit again to try dinner menu.

I only dined for breakfast. The croissant sandwich was massive and very greasy. I had to eat it with a knife and fork and even then, it deconstructed easily. The eggs were way overcooked or perhaps had been sitting under a heat lamp as they were quite rubbery. The rosemary potatoes, however were amazing and the service was very good.... More

Our recent lunch at 312 Chicago included great food and acceptable service. The menu was varied and the portion sizes were good - not ridiculously large but not stingy either. I had the salmon with lentils and it was fantastic. The guys who filled water glasses were amazing at keeping our glasses filled; refills on coffee were a little slower.... More

The food, wine, service, atmosphere were amazing. Everything on the menu looked great. I ordered the halibut and it was the perfect choice, delicious. Started with the mozzarella, prosciutto appetizer. It had great flavor. I highly recommend this hidden gem.

If I were to give this restaurant a college grade, it would earn an A-. The ambiance is very nice and clean, but nothing memorable. The tables were well spaced and it was not too loud, as some establishments in Chicago can be. The service was impeccable! The host was quick to seat us and our server was expedient, informative...
