About RLReviewsMenuWinesGift Certificates



“Design mogul Ralph Lauren's first restaurant venture, next door to the largest Polo store in the world,unmistakably announces private club: very British, very swanky, very posh. It begins with the small bar at the front, with its black marble fireplace, mahogany paneling and brass- and ebony cocktail tables.The dining room beyond completes the image. Its navy blue walls, interspersed with more mahogany,are covered with artwork from Lauren's private collection. Herringbone hardwood floors lead to plush,caramel leather- upholstered chairs and banquettes.”
CS (Chicago Social)

“The dining room features the vision and style of Mr. Lauren and classic, but inventive, American cuisine.”
Front Desk Magazine

RL was named as one of the “Ten Reasons why the Windy City is leaving shoppers breathless”
Harper's Bazaar

“RL looks more like the leather- padded, mahogany- paneled library of a corporate law firm than the pleasant restaurant it is.”
Chicago Magazine

“I have had both lunch and dinner at RL-- a grand experience each time. I've tried lamb (the rack and the porterhouse), lobster bisque, lobster & bacon club and desserts. Each was outstanding. Service is efficient, cordial and unobtrusive. As you'd expect, each detail is perfectly executed-- lit candles covered with lampshades at each table and a coordination of color, texture and art distinctly Ralph's own.There's lots of wood, deep blue cloth on the walls, buckskin leather seating and a blend of black and white photos (Mick Jagger, Gary Cooper, Frank Sinatra, etc.) with old English oils that somehow works beautifully. The front bar area is vintage RL library- study decor, complete with working fireplace,bookcases, etc. If you like his style in clothes and furnishings, you'll love this place and dine very well.

I heard that RL has new management and boy can you tell!! The menu has undergone a complete makeover and the food is very good. The traditional American cuisine fits the clubby atmosphere of the room. Keep up the good work.

We gave last minute reservations and were received very pleasantly and welcoming for our party of 6.The food, wine, ambiance, staff, service ... perfect! We are hoteliers and also in the food and beverage industry, since we can't seem to leave work at home, and very easily become critiques to any restaurant, we were absolutely blown away! We would definitely return!
