Beyond excellent service, food quality, taste, ambiance. Much better than expected, even with already great reviews. Will definitely make this a pit stop every time we visit Chicago.

Food was delicious and service was very nice, but surprisingly small portions for the price point. Ambiance was frenetic and there were babies around, so it made it hard to hear friends for a get-together meal. Probably better for a later dinner group who do not need to hear conversation as much.

Our table ended up being about twenty minutes late which happens but I really appreciated that the manager came over to apologize and sent over a complimentary appetizer and dessert. That really stood out and will ensure I return next time I'm in town. Everything was delicious.

RPM Italian far exceeded my expectations. Food and atmosphere were great. The experience was made even better by our server, Kevin. He was engaging, personable, knowledgeable of the menu, and made our overall experience just so much better. If you go, be sure to ask to be seated in Kevin's section!

Great food and great service. Server and Sommelier helped us pick Italian wines as we normally do not drink Italian wine. Ordered a few appetizers and the octopus was the standout. Everyone in our group ordered pasta as the main entree, and we ordered a rib-eye to share for the table to accompany the pastas. Everyone enjoyed the three desserts that we shared for the table with lattes and cappuccinos

In Chicago for work and my wife has always wanted to try RPM. She is a big Julianna fan. Can't say enough about our experience. The food was amazing. The staff was amazing. It was a great dinner and a great night. The environment was awesome too. Felt like we had an intimate dinner but in a place that was happening. Thank you!

Not worth the price for me. Food was good, liked the atmosphere but the waiter was a little stuffy. Didn’t love it especially for the price.

Although there were many tables available we were given one near the door to the kitchen and the servers were constantly pushing my chair. Further we weren’t told that it was a set menu for mother’s day

We went to RPM for Mother's Day dinner and they had a set menu for the occasion. Although we weren't aware it was a four course/prefixed menu, we were pleasantly surprised with how amazing the food was and how stuffed we left the restaurant. Generous portions and we got to try a little bit of everything. The service was also great!

I was disappointed by the Mother's Day four course meal. I ordered the Halibut which was overcooked and inedible. Also, despite advertising that there was a gift card for the mothers, our waiter pretended that he did not know what we were talking about. We had 530PM reservations. Then came back and send they ran out of the boxes and eventually brought the gift cards.

Keep returning for the menu selection which is not overpriced. Many tempting entree selections to choose from (veal chop being my favorite) The wait staff has been exceptional and I appreciate that the seating arrangements are well spaced and conversation friendly

Went to celebrate my son’s graduation and mother’s day as well. I made the reservation through open table but I didn’t realize that it was a fixed price, set menu that day. (I was a little disappointed).We were seated on a table where the air conditioning was blowing right on us and we were shivering. Our waiter was accommodating enough and let us move to the next table. The starter/appetizer they offered were excellent, the pastas were great too. But sorry to say, I didn’t enjoy my veal parmesan, it was dry. And their desserts are to die for. There’s four of us so we get to order each different one and got the chance to try each of them. I’d like to come back and try the different food from the menu.

We attended the mother's day brunch. Fixed menu. We almost added the massive powerhouse steak. Thank God we didn't. Four course meal, huge portions, great wine list, excellent cocktails. Dessert was off the hook. Perfect for the occassion. Everyone was satisfied and everyone had a nice to-go bag. Bravo!
