Foursquare Tips

  • How convenient that such an elegant establishment is located right in the hotel! A convenience that would not be lost on Juan Borgia!
  • "She is My Cherry . . . Gimlet" mixes vodka, cherry pure and lime juice; "Siamese Dream" now off the menu matched dark rum with pumpkin pure, Grand Marnier and spiced syrup.
  • The masterpiece is a lamb shank with farro risotto, peperonata, and mint gremolata: dramatic, tender, and unforgettable.
  • The flan dessert and coffee were excellent. Great atmosphere. Very warm and cozy.
  • The blonde haired hostess/floor manager was extremely accommodating to us having kids there, quite a help...
  • Free pizza, as long as you order a drink.
  • A picnic basket from the Florentine of lovely grilled veggies, roast chicken, potatoes, house-made ricotta & mozzarella, proscuitto & melon, olives, and delicious Italian cookies. Really delicious!
  • Get the Pollo. The sauce is incredible. Best chicken I've had in ages!
  • The prime rib is to die for!! Perfectly marbled and cooked to perfection!!!
  • Breakfast starts at 6:30 a.m. Try the almond French toast ($12), made with thick, eggy brioche soaked in the usual egg slurry, grilled and topped with caramelized bananas and orange syrup.
  • Thought youd want to know: The Florentine has been nominated for Best New Italian in Time Out Chicagos 2011 Eat Out Awards. Vote now!
  • The tortellini is a great menu option!
  • The salmon salad was wonderful with a garlic dressing that was light and easy on the garlic flavor.
  • Awesome venue! Great meeting place for lunch in the Loop!
  • A sleek and sophisticated Italian eatery inside the JW Marriott Chicago hotel. Grab some antipasti or a pizza at the bar, or spend some time with Chris Macchia's full menu.
  • Lamb shank and pork belly risotto both delicious. Risotto was lighter than expected but extra yummy.
  • Risotto with pork belly and an egg!
  • Wonderful service, great drink menu
  • Great food if you're willing to wait for the slow service
