Select from a memorable Contemporary American menu featuring outstanding dishes in an environment that blends the classic understated elegance of The Lobby's décor.

Take a table by the soaring 20 ft high floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Terrace. Breakfast is a favourite with both early-rising Chicago residents and hotel guests alike, who swear by starting the day with one of the many breakfast options, while The Lobby's approachable, yet American contemporary inspired à la carte is ideal for power lunches and sophisticated dinners.

The Lobby is also where the celebrated Peninsula Afternoon Tea is served. Featuring samplings of seasonal flavors, the sweet and savory bites accompanying The Peninsula's selection of teas are not to be missed.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, dessert lovers swoon over the Chocolate Bar, where guests enjoy live music by local singer-songwriter Stephanie Browning.  Guests who dine with us for dinner in The Lobby or Shanghai Terrace will also receive 50% off their Chocolate Experience.

Come Sundays, a spectacular brunch is served from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Hailed among the best in Chicago, The Lobby certainly steps up to plate with all the sweet and savory requisites.

In constantly striving to improve our facilities, we are taking time to refresh The Lobby.  We will be closing The Lobby for maintenance starting Sunday January 7th, 2018 to Monday January 22nd, 2018.  During this period, The Lobby will serve Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, and Dinner in Avenues Ballroom, located adjacent to The Lobby restaurant. In addition, Shanghai Terrace, Pierrot Gourmet and The Bar will remain open during the closure.

Children's menus are available with a variety of offerings.
