Signature Room at the 95th Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: You won't find better dining with a view in Chicago, save at Everest. Panoramic scenes make it popular with the tourist and special occasion sets so expect the phones to be out and snapping sunsets and selfies.

Likes: The view will give you all the Chicago feels.
Dislikes: The prices reflect the premium real estate, but when 95 floors up, it's worth it.

Food & Drinks: Appetizers may feature comfort food with a luxe twist, as with the sautéed shrimp with creamy grits and grilled shishito pepper vinaigrette. The kitchen has a nice way with seafood, so try the pan-seared halibut or twin lobster tails to follow. Roasted rack of lamb may be paired with fried kale and gemelli pasta. Steaks and sides such as potato croquettes round out the menu. Desserts might include coconut lime cheesecake or white and dark chocolate mousse cake. Service maintains a pleasant air, and the generous wine list is worthy of a special occasion, skewing Californian with plenty of options at all price points. Top View Brew is the restaurant's own golden wheat ale crafted by Crystal Lake Brewing. Weekend brunch is a popular affair and features buffets of starters and desserts plus entrée options such as bread pudding french toast or steak and eggs. The Signature Lounge at the 96th (one floor above) offers small plates and sandwiches, along with specialty cocktails.
