The world famous Walnut Room has been a Chicago tradition since 1907. Located on the 7th floor of Macy's on State Street, the Walnut Room was the first restaurant ever opened in a department store. Conveniently located in the heart of the Chicago theater district, the Walnut Room is an excellent choice to take a break from shopping or for a meal and a glass of wine before the show.
Enjoy our Famous Mrs. Herring's Chicken Pot Pie and other well known favorites on the menu.
For our weekday pre-theatre diners, we highly suggest you are seated by 6:15pm to ensure the dinner experience standards we pride ourselves on. On Saturdays, we highly suggest by 6:45pm.

- RLRoseanneLvipChicago / Illinois •45 reviews5.0Dined 1 day agoI've eaten at Remington's multiple times. I was here recently & everything tasted as expected, except the Key Lime Pie. I've always recommended Remington's as a great place to dine and have emphasized how wonderfully tasty the tart Key Lime filling and buttery crust are. I don't go out as often as I once did and made a point of talking up the pie with my visiting guests. I ordered a slice of the pie. It's different than expected. Much sweeter, more pudding-like filling, and a too crumbly crust. I'm so bummed to say it wasn't what I had come to expect. But the ambience is great and the waitstaff is wonderful.More infoRemington'sPrice: Moderate• American• Downtown / Loop•4.7
- OTOpenTable DinerChicago / Illinois •1 review5.0Dined 2 days agoGreat experience. Arrived late (due to heavy traffic) for our reservation, but they seated us within 5-10 minutes -- even though the restaurant was busy. Our server was polite, available, and attentive. He immediately asked if we had any time constraints, and made sure that we were served promptly and received our check in a timely manner. We enjoyed the delicious meal and made it to the Lyric Opera without being late in the least. Would return again without a second thought!More infoRoanokePrice: Moderate• American• Downtown / Loop•4.5

Downside is cost - Tiny Bellini at $15.50 each plus tax and tip and don’t love the surcharge. Shouldn’t cost almost $70 for 2 drinks and 1 food item.More infoRosebud on RandolphPrice: Expensive• Italian• River North (Chicago)•4.5
- Llolo4sholovipAtlanta Metro •25 reviews5.0Dined 2 days agoHeather, our server was outstanding. She was very attentive, made great menu suggestions, and took good care of us during our meal. The patio was a great vibe and more relaxed than the indoor atmosphere, so it was a perfect fit for a girls dinner. We ordered the fried basil pesto risotto starter, the seafood squid ink pasta and a spaghetti and meatball pomodoro dish - all were delicious (pasta is made in house every morning). Overall, we had an enjoyable dinner and I would definitely go back if I am on South Michigan.More infoAcantoPrice: Expensive• Italian• Downtown / Loop•4.8
