The terrace has a stunning view and the prix fixe dinner is a very, very special night out.
What. A. Treat. Make a date take you for a special occasion or your husband on an anniversary. Or even a very cool (and expensive) girl's night out. And if it's in season, you CANNOT do without the dark chocolate covered bacon Manhattan.
Food and drink augment spectacular views at the Trump Hotel. – The lush, palm-dotted outdoor terrace clinging to the 16th floor of the Trump International Hotel and Tower has two major things going for it: jaw-dropping views of Lake Michigan, the Chicago River and Mag Mile architectural treasures, as well as food and drink that refuse to fade into the backdrop. The menu dials back pretension; a fashionable after-work crowd lingers over casual standbys gone upscale, like crispy duck leg spring rolls with carrot coulis and lamb loin sliders on brioche with red pepper ketchup and truffled fries. Of course, there are oysters and Champagne for the die-hard luxury set.
Disgusting and Rude – After reading in several articles that the Terrace at Sixteen was having a soft opening on Monday June 22 (the Grand being on Thursday, June 25), I decided this would be a great start to the evening I planned for my boyfriends birthday. I called around noon on Monday to confirm that the terrace would be open and was told that it would open at 4 pm. Perfect.
We get there, see people all over but the hostess (who spends a lot of time on the phone - I go there at least once a week and she's always on the phone) tells us that the terrace isn't open. We see people out there sitting and drinking. Then she changes her story to say that it's open for friends and family only. Then she says she'll make a call and see what she can do. We wait and wait. A big, tall man finally comes up and sharply snaps that the terrace is not open, may not ever open and they have people at City Hall "right now" trying to secure a license so that they can open. Obviously, somebody was lying. The hostess looked very embarrassed and of course, got back on the phone.
Since we were also told that we could not sit in the lounge, we left but not before I used the restroom. I have seen gas station restrooms that looked cleaner than this one. There were 4 stalls, one door was closed and two stalls had unflushed contents in the toilets. I felt sick to my stomach. I took pictures with my phone (which I thought about then decided not to post here) and immediately left. I planned to show and tell the hostess what I had witnessed but - you guessed it, she was on the phone.
Bottom line, between the lies, the rudeness and the filth, I will never step foot in a Trump property ever again.
Great Fine dining – Sixteen has a great scene and view of the city along with excellent food and service makes this place a must visit for fine dining lovers. A lil pricey.
Bad, Bad, Bad!!!!! Mind this place – If I could give zero stars, I would do it. I know food and this is by far the worst and most expensive place that I have ever dined at. My wife and I had the 5 course tasting menu. Not one course was good, as you would expect at $100,- per person. And watch out for the wine prices. This place is a complete rip off. There are many other places in Chicago to get a great meal. This is not one of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Contemporary American food competes with great views and a splashy wine list at the Trump Chicago. – Aussie Chef Frank Brunacci applies international flair to contemporary American dishes such as a subtle crab salad swaddled in fragrant rockmelon and dressed with pineapple and cress and a vanilla cream-annoited foie terrine--the richness cut by vinegary fig and hearts of palm salad. A zebrawood-paneled elevator zips swank diners up to the 16th floor lobby, a space defined by a sliver of a bar and glassy duel wine cellars that flank the entrance. The back wall is a curved, leaning edifice of burled wood; a tiered chandelier, designed by Ivanka Trump herself, is laden with crystal lozenges. The glorious East-to-South view is one of the city's most stunning.
