So it was around 6 and we were not ready for dinner so we went to RL for a late afternoon tea. The staff who arranged seats for us was fine with this and she was very polite while a lot of guests were having early dinner. The vibe was great and the environment was excellent! Actually all the staff were very polite except the one that later attended us. We ordered black coffee, lattes and chocolate cake, latte was good as well as the cake- not that sweet (personal preference). Good view for both indoor and outdoor with tasteful paintings and fine dining table setting. We will definitely go another time for dinner.

The Ralph Lauren restaurant in Chicago is one of four locations around the world. You can imagine I was excited to book my reservation knowing this would be a unique experience. The venue was quaint and dimly lit. It was packed on a Friday night. The restaurant space is quite small for the amount of patrons seated and also the amount anxiously waiting for a table. It was difficult to maneuver through the tables. Nevertheless, we were on time and immediately sat at our table in the back of the restaurant. For dinner, I had the lobster rolls, the lamb chops, and the brownie dessert. The lobster rolls were extremely tasty! The buttered rolls melted in my mouth as I took each bite. The lamb chops were also good. The only thing I was disappointed with was they were room temperature. The dessert was rich and decadent. I really like how all the dish ware had the RL logo on them; gave it a nice touch. Overall, I’m glad I was able to experience the RL Restaurant and highly recommend trying the lobster rolls when visiting. Oh and be sure to make a reservation to guarantee a table.

Our condo unit located along the Magnificent Mile is just a 10 minutes walk to the RL Restaurant. We love the classic ambience, the good food and the friendly attentive services. We frequent this place whenever we are in town. Make sure to make a reservation.

Worth every penny. We sat outside in the patio however, I would recommend waiting for a table in the inside if you want the more elegant experience. Lobster bisque. One of the best lobster rolls I have ever had. Fresh fish. Perch if I recall. Juicy chicken sandwich. The elevator to get to the bathroom was intriguing. The bathroom in the gold decor was very pretty. The Polo experience has a POLO pricetag. But we all know polo is worth every penny!

Been coming here for years and always love it! Great quality food and drinks. Staff is very kind and helpful. The tables are tight together inside but it makes for a cozy feel. Definitely one of my favorite spots in the city! The burgers and sandwiches are all amazing - I also highly recommend the lobster bisque

The ambiance plus service and drinks is my main reason for giving 5 stars. 4.5 for the fish. A person in our party said the veal chop was very good. The spinach had good garlic and calamari was tender. The coffee specialty drink was very good.

Simply exquisite! Went for a work lunch. Wonderful atmosphere and totally not what I expected! Super friendly and inviting staff, I had the perch which was super flaky and tasty! Got to sit in the window area and feel the breeze come in. Really enjoyed the meal and place. Would definitely come back!

I was here for my friends birthday, I tried the RL burger was really yummy, served with pickles and fries. My friends got the veggie burger and lamb chops, they liked them as well. The staff are really friendly too, definitely will come back.
