Do I need a reservation at Shanghai Terrace?

Answers from Our Experts (2)

While it is not required to have a reservation to dine at Shanghai Terrace, you’ll want to make one, especially with the bustling Magnificent Mile only steps away. During the spring and summer, the outdoor dining area opens and guests pack the fourth-floor terrace, soaking in the Windy City’s limited enjoyable weather and views of Michigan Avenue. When it’s nice out, the restaurant fills up quickly, so you’ll likely have to wait if you didn’t call ahead for a spot. If you’d rather dine indoors, Shanghai Terrace’s intimate dining room only seats 70 people, which also makes it hard to guarantee a table for your party without a reservation.

To make a reservation online, visit OpenTable or The Peninsula Chicago’s website; to book over the phone, call the restaurant’s reservations line or The Peninsula Chicago’s concierge directly.

Reservations are recommended for indoor seating at Shanghai Terrace for dinner. If you’re joining us for dinner with a large party and need the private dining room, we request advanced reservations by calling us at 312-573-6744 or e-mailing us at shanghaiterrace@peninsula.com. Reservations are not accepted for our outdoor terrace.
