Cape Cod

The Cape Cod, a much honored seafood restaurant, boasts of fresh seafood from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, from the lakes and freshwater streams. It has been consistently named as one of America's finest dining spots since opening in 1933. Zagat's consumer survey also picked the Cape Cod as a top hotel restaurant. It was recently inducted by Nation's Restaurant News into the Fine Dining Hall of Fame.

Located on the arcade level, the cozy restaurant, established in 1933 is decked with nautical paraphernalia. Nautical themed, wooden beams, hanging copper pots and stuffed sailfish adorn the room, walls and ceiling of this immensely popular restaurant. Reservations are very strongly recommended.

"We had dinner during Chef's week. The waiter , who's English could be better, admitted he had only been there 1 week so he recommended everything. We didn't order the specially reduced priced entrees although the price was right. We ordered Salmon and
scallops. The cubed butternut squash was hard as a rock. One piece of pickled cauliflower ( the size of a quarter) was also included. So I only ate the salmon and bread. A cosmo coctail cost $15. There was only 1 other table of diners on a Tuesday night. No wonder... the Cape Cod room has gone downhill,

"The service was very good; just be aware that it's not a hip place and it is a very traditional restaurant, but a nice and cozy place. Unfortunately, they had a mishap with the food; I ordered steak Oscar medium rare and it was cooked like a pot-roast; the second time it was rare, but I didn't want to complaint again and was ready to eat as my husband had already finished his meal! The white asparagus on the menu turned out to be green peeled asparagus - disappointing - but they took some % off the bill. I wish this old establishment would have turned out better; but Chicago has too many good restaurants, so we won't go back. :-("

"It had been eight years since we had dined at The Cape Cod Room - we left feeling, why did we wait so long? Our friends indicated that they wanted to try it and we had a delightful evening. The servers are real pros; the food always to die for; and we have never had a table that wasn't conversation-friendly appropriated. Of course it is nestled in the historic Drake Hotel which is the pride of Chicago. During the summer, request a window booth that looks out on the gazebo. Enhance your evening before-hand by stopping for a drink in the main lobby bar. The scallops and deviled eggs were especially tasty. Thanks for a great evening."

"Everything was great. I like a bartender that actually talks to you when sitting at the bar. Especially one that knows the history of the place. Servers where great and helpful. Food was exceptional. One note, blue cheese olives should be hand stuffed with a good blue cheese at a restaurant of your caliber and note from a jar. Which are horrible."

"Checked on the Valentine's Day menu the day before and was assured (by the restaurant manager himself!) that my two favorite entrees would be available, so made a reservation at the restaurant and booked a night in the (Drake) hotel for Valentine's Day. To my dismay, neither of the two entrees were available. I complained to the hotel when checking out and was assured that the restaurant manager would call me do discuss "no later than Wednesday". It is Saturday already and no one has called. Overall, this is a nice hotel and restaurant, but I think it is over-rated and resting on its laurels from the past. It badly needs to catch up with the present!"

"Service was uneven. Although seated immediately, it took over 15 minutes for the waiter to notice us (bus boy attentive from the start). Once he caught on, it went better although it took a while to get a check and get out at the end of the evening. Split decision on food - salmon entree was mediocre and under cooked, a disappointment for a usually reliable seafood entity. A filet mignon dish was excellent. This was our third or fourth visit to the restaurant in recent years, and the most disappointing, particularly considering the cost.
It was topped off by our being reported to Open Table as having failed to appear for our reservation - oh well!

"This "hotel dining room" restaurant is right from the 50's and 60's. No glitz...just good food and friendly service. Marilyn Monroe dined here, and that makes the place historic in my mind. One of Chicago's older, memorable restaurants."
