Make Room For Truman
We were in town for G-Fest.
Attentive servers. Fun atmosphere. Unique shareable dishes that made for a fun evening with friends.
Food and service was pretty good, though I don’t know if I would come back. There wasn’t anything that knocked me off my feet.
Great spot! Terrific menu—one of those places where everything looks good; we had the pastrami wings with a pork chop and bavette steak, which were excellent...but the prime rib, roast chicken, ribs, and carnivore grilled cheese are all calling for a return visit. Don’t miss the jumbo tots or Brussels sprouts! Service was exceptional, nice value. We’ll definitely be back!
Delicious food. Service was good and the outdoor seating is fantastic on a beautiful evening. Oh and in Tuesday’s they have half priced bottles of wine - score!!
We had great appetizers and an excellent salad. Very good wine - we went on half price wine night. Our waiter was very attentive and knew his dishes. I think the only problem is that we loved Houlihans and it still looks like Houlihans and Houlihans had great food and more variety - and it's more expensive than Houlihans was.
Food and service good. Menu offers many varieties. Website offers valet parking, but didn't see valet when we were there yesterday. Also, we were a group of five. We were seated in a banquette that could be comfortable for maybe four people; yet the restaurant was not crowded and seating at a table would be more appropriate. I didn't suggest moving so as not to disrupt my group.
Overall a good experience. The back patio is a bit dingy so I'd recommend dining inside or on the front patio.
Good cocktails and food.
Our waiter was accommodating and recommended some of the best dishes. Exceptional service and really good food
Great neighborhood find. Exceptional food and service (thank you Katie)!
An exceptional restaurant . Food and service was amazing!
My family and I dined at MRFT this afternoon. Everything was delicious from the Roma tomatoes and shrimp appetizers to the swordfish, burger, pork chop and my Bavette steak. My steak was perfectly cooked and had so much flavor; I enjoyed every bite.
I'm really love MRFT. It's the perfect restaurant for me - casual but nice, great value for food at different price points and open whenever I need it.
Everything was excellent- the drinks, food, service!! Can’t wait to go back!!!
We went out for my birthday and to use MRFT's free birthday entree coupon. Our server immediately wished me a happy birthday. The braised rib was so tender and tasty! The cornbread is a staple as well as their smoky Manhattan. They comp'd the Truman for my birthday dessert. Great food, attentive staff and reasonable prices.
Everything was good. Nothing was great. Not sure what all the great reviews were about.
First time at Make Room for Truman. Free valet offered. Had the crunchy spicy shrimp app which was great. Perfectly cooked and the right any of spice. Husband and I both ordered the special which was salmon and broccolini....and then after we entered our order was told they just sold out (at 7 pm). And then our server said she didn’t realize the special was swordfish? Not sure which was the case. But they could replace the salmon with swordfish. Husband got that and I switched to steak. Both were really delicious. Seasoned and cooked perfectly. Ended with sharing the apple cobbler which was ok. Only thing I was surprised about was they didn’t offer any discount for having to change our order. Oh well, everything turned out great in the end. Will be going back to try some other items.
Love their happy hour drinks and apps!! Our meals were well prepared and the best service anywhere. One of the hosts noticed I was struggling with the menu (forgot my glasses) and she showed up with a basket of glasses and told me to just return them at the end of the meal. Above and beyond and nice touch.
Birthday lunch was excellent & Sidney’s service was outstanding
Food hasn’t disappointed us yet. Want to also compliment our server Kate. She is so pleasant and really on her game. No matter how crowded the restaurant, no never feel ignored by Kate!
Great vegetarian dishes...please add more.
Really good, interesting dishes. Ribs were too spicy for me but I’m a wimp.
Love Make Room for Truman. The smokey Old Fashioned is outstanding. The blue cheese potato chips were good and different. The rotisserie chicken was delicious. And of course, the dessert, Truman, was the best.
The food was absolutely delicious and my picky kid eaters loved it too. We will be back.
The food is outstanding with service to match. The lobster sandwich, pork chops and burgers are very tasty.
Food is consistently good. Tried the Roma Tomato appetizer and we weren't wowed by it - edible but not a big deal. Pastrami Wings are delicious, love the crunchy giant tater tots, salads and entrees.
Amazing! We went for Father's Day, not too loud, not too crowded, just enough to have a warm ambience. The decor is fun and that kind of hipster-chic look. I wore a plaid shirt so I fit right in. The Father's Day menu was off the charts. My husband loved it. Sadly, only scraps left for our puppy at home. Great food and drink. Very reasonably priced for the Chicago area. As everyone says when raving about a place...we'll be back!
Pleasantly surprised that this is a part of Houlihan’s, yet independent with styling, menu, and scratch kitchen (all made from scratch). Great service. Will be back soon.
Food is always excellent here. This time Mom ordered the crab cakes and they were too spicy for us but otherwise everything from the burger to the rotisserie chicken to steaks have been delicious. The manager/owner is really personable and clearly cares about his customers. The ambience is warm and inviting.
Our first time here as it was recommended by a colleague. We went with our 4 year old and it was great. Food did not take long at all to come out and service was superior by everyone we came in contact with. Love this place. Thank you all!
Ordered steak salad med well. steak came med rare. Messed up appetite and salad.
Restaurant said they would remake my steak after my friend finished eating.
Like the place but not this salad
I had the prime rib and it was very good. I will come back again and would recommend this restaurant.
Yummy cocktails, wonderful side dishes. Love their Mac and cheese. Babette steak was delish.
Loretta was wonderful. Extremely efficient and attentive. She made our Aunt’s dinner a memorable experience.
Ian was also wonderful. Very pleasant and helpful.
Table of 8 was served very well. They took into account food allergies and made recommendations. We were checked up on frequently. Good food!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion! We had a wonderful experience all around!
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time. We were seated right away with our reservation. The decor was beautiful and elegant. The food choices were different and creative. Everyone loved their choice. We shared dessert, The Truman. The presentation was spectacular and it tasted delicious. Perfect ending to a fun night. Our waiter Jimmy was very attentive and informative when we had questions. Looking forward to going back and taking my husband.
Get the bartender special old fashioned!
Great food! Great service. Not a romantic date place, more family dinner. A lot of kids.
Food is excellent as was the service. This was our 2nd time here & we love it.
