"I had wanted to try this restaurant and did so for lunch. Not the best time to go. The food was good (not great), but the service for the lunch hour was much too slow. I might try it for dinner sometime, but it's off my list for places to take customers for lunch."

Rivers, located on the lobby level of The Chicago Mercantile Exchange Building, is one of the Chicago Loop's most popular restaurants. Rivers offers creative, seasonally changing contemporary American cuisine with influences from around the globe. Rivers is an all occasion venue featuring a relaxed yet upscale dining room & a large outdoor deck for alfresco dining during warm weather months. Rivers is the perfect place for a business lunch, or for meeting friends after work for happy hour drinks or dinner. It's next-door proximity to the Civic Opera House, as well as all downtown theaters makes Rivers an excellent pre-theatre choice before the show begins. The United Center is also close by & Rivers is an ideal "first stop" for meeting friends for a Bulls or Hawks game. Please note: Rivers Restaurant does not take reservations online for parties larger than 9. Please call the restaurant for details.

"Consistently a good place for lunch meetings. Food is good, place is relatively quiet for talking and they get you in and out in a timely manner."

"We went for dinner on Christmas and could have not made a better choice! The staff was amazing and made you feel like you were in their own home. The decorations, the music and the general beauty of the restaurant made it so warm and inviting. And, if that wasn't enough our meals were all outstanding! We loved every minute!"

The Tam O'Shanter is a dining legend in the heart of Los Angeles, here you will find the charm of a Highland inn. The qualities that built our reputation- superb food, outstanding service and a dedication to honoring our guests with the highest quality in value-are as strong today as when we first opened our doors in 1922.

"Not sure how I've missed this one in my 40 years of traveling to LA, but what a gem! I was there for the holidays and it made it even more special. Great food, great ambiance, great service and we even got Carolers."

312 Chicago proudly supports the Green City Market and local farms dedicated to community-based sustainable agriculture, organic farming and naturally raised livestock. Our chefs serve contemporary and traditional Italian dishes using seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Our extensive wine collection, featuring more than 200 American and Italian wines, is displayed throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms. At the bar, enjoy superb spirits and wines by the glass representing a duality of American and Italian varietals.<br /><br />312 Chicago is centrally located the Loop Theater and Financial District. Every room offers iconic city views including City Hall, the Thompson Center, the Board of Trade and the Cadillac Palace Theater. The ambiance evokes the comfort and sophistication of a 1930’s supper club, but the style is pure, modern elegance with rich walnut wood and dramatic chandeliers.

"I had not been to 312 for some time and thought I'd try it again, but unfortunately it was at best good...not great. We had to send one meal back once, and should have sent it back a second time, but could not get our waitresses attention. She stopped by the table once to say "everything is good, right?" ... and then left before we coudl even respond. We had also told her we were going to the theater, but she did not manage the timing properly and we were barely able to finish our meal before we had to race off before the curtain went up. There are many other choices in the theater district...thank goodness."
