Third Star Restaurant-Hyatt McCormick Place
They did not honour my open table reservation.
Convenient for guests at hotel, and the coffee was excellent. Food was good, and prices were reasonable.
We were able to get in on an incredibly busy. Saturday evening. The buffet was OUTSTANDING. Will be returning.
Not open for dinner yet Open Table took a reservation for 5:30 PM
This was the worst restaurant experience I have had in a long time. My sandwich, a tuna BTL, was freezer-burned. The waiter never took a drink order - thankfully there was water on the table.
A business lunch gone bad....
We waited far too long for a server to offer us anything to drink--over 6 minutes.
Restaurant was closed in spite of me being able to make reservations. Fortunately the adjoining bar/restaurant could accommodate us.
The place was closed so we ate on the outside restaurant in the same area
Very attentive staff and good food at a reasonable price. Would come back again.
Never been to a Hyatt with such mediocre food. I’ve had better steaks at IHOP.
The issue I have is more with Open Table than 3rd Star. Due to hotel strike restaurant was closed and I had to scramble at last minute to secure a reservation at another restaurant for a dinner meeting with a very important client. I do not think I will relay on Open Table in the future.
They were closed for business on Monday evening, even though the reservation was accepted. There is an adjacent bar area that the management also oversees. They worked to accommodate us there, but the noise level and seating was not nearly as conducive to the business meeting I was having. Service was good, and the food OK, but with very limited selections.
Chef Jason went above and beyond when requested to prepare a special dinner for my business guests. All vegan or vegetarian, they were in for the ultimate dining experience. Starting with lemon curd hummus and buffalo style cauliflower the menu just continued to get better. From salad to dessert the artfully designed menu was described as "manna" and satisfied even the most discriminating palate.
Job well done Chef Jason - and thanks to all the staff (shout out to Kaci Zimmerman) who made the evening complete.
My reservation was cancelled the day before I was due to dine at the restaurant. I planned a pre-graduation dinner for 8 people because we have four elderly people and the graduation was at the Arie Crown Theatre. Cynthia called me and told me that the restaurant would be closed but that my party could dine at the Arc Bar. She said that they don’t take reservations but they would take our reservation and take care of us since our reservation was cancelled.
When we arrived there was no table set up for us. The server initially tried to seat us at a highball table. She had the worse attitude when I explained to her that the elderly people could not sit on the high chairs.
I talked to the manager and he appeared not to care at all. Our server was a lovely African American young woman and she was good. She gave us a complimentary dessert for my daughter because she was graduating.
It’s very disappointing when you make plans and business don’t provide good service.
Perfect for what we needed. The food was adequate, service was terrific!
Food was what one might expect at a convention center hotel. Not as upscale as a downtown hotel restaurant. Very open seating in full view of passers by.
The serving staff were friendly and attentive, and service speed was fine. The food was fine, not amazing or terrible. I was here for a business meal as it is attached to a conference centre so the location was very convenient, but unfortunately, with the adjoining bar, the restaurant was very noisy. There isn't a great choice of restaurants for business meals in the area surrounding McCormick Place.
Average food, overpriced.
The servers were nice but the service was slow. I had many meals there over a 5-day period. The noise level from the nearby Arc Bar in the afternoon and evening made it nearly impossible to have a conversation. The menu was very limited but if you are a guest at the Hyatt Hotel, there are no other choices. The prices were way too high for the value of the food and the experience. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone at all for any purpose. In fact, I would recommend that Chicagoans who are NOT hotel guests stay away so that hotel guests can at least have a chance for timely seating and and prompt service. The Third Star Restaurant was a huge dissapointment and made me regret that I'd stayed at the Hyatt -- and I'm a Hyatt frequent-sleeper.
A nice surprise in the quality of the food - I had a turkey burger and feel it is one of the best. My dining companions were very happy with their lunches as well and our service was excellent. Would go back again!
Third Star Restaurant has Great Food, Great Service and a Friendly Staff. The restaurant was extremely busy because there were two major Conventions going on at McCormick Place. I am so happy that I had made a reservation because people were standing in line to get into the restaurant and I heard that the waiting time was at least an hour.
I really enjoyed myself and will go there again.
Nice spot for a bite to eat if you are in the area.
The food was good but took a long time. The service was horrible. While the server was very personable, he was unable to keep any of our orders straight. It was as if he forgot as soon as he left our table even though it appeared that he was taking notes. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Was not terribly impressed. Food was just okay. Service was very slow. Took forever to get the check. Also took a while to get seated. We had a reservation but for some reason had to wait until several other groups without reservations were seated. On the plus side, staff was very nice and price of the buffet was reasonable.
Great menu, food and service. It was the perfect lunch spot for a business meeting. The restaurant was filled to capacity, adding to the noise level but not excessive.
The noise level is DEAFENING!!! Put up a wall and use ceiling tiles to absorb the din. Much worse than the prior restaurant!!!
Great location in the hotel. Had a party of 20.
Everyone enjoyed themselves.
Service and food was good.
Marginal. Nothing more than a hotel restaurant. We were hoping it would be a good place for dinner before a concert at Wintrust, but it was disappointing. Next time we will look for a better option.
met a cousin who was attending a convention at mccormick place and she did not have time to run downtown to meet so we ate here and everything was great.
we sat for a long time and talked, and did not get bothered to leave. (it was not busy sunday am).
The food was fabulous but the waitresses were slow and not approachable. Seemed like we were imposing on them.
Our waitress Alicja was fantastic! Very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu items.
Good option for hotel or conference food. Good quality, but not particularly special; pricey as expected for a hotel restaurant. Service was very friendly and attentive.
Disappointed at the quality of some of the meals that our group ordered. The Pot Roast was very dry, and one of the orders arrived well after the rest of the group had their meal. Most of the group felt their meals were just "ok". There were very few people in the restaurant, so we couldn't understand how the preparation of the meals were so-so.
Couldn't recommend to a large group of 10 or more.
The service from the hostess to the server was horrible. I know they get mostly a convention crowd but the could at least be cordial. I hope the new hotel being built has some good options. But the food is good and the have some unusual items.
The food here is very good but the service and disorganization of staff is a real distraction to the quality and one needs to be prepared to be tolerant of what comes across as complete incompetence if they diner here.
