A Chicago GemGreat food and wonderful staff. Food was served promptly, prepared exactly as desired. Desserts were delicious. Sat on the patio to enjoy what was a beautiful day. Will return again,5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice SteakhouseNot much needs to be said - in a city full of good steakhouses, Carmichael's is as good as any other. It is a little bit distant from the crazy downtown area - but this is a good thing in my honest opinion. Great ambiance, good selections, and actually good seafood too. The nice touch is their cheese spread (made with beer) for their bread basket - very unique and very tasty. Will definitely come again.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you enjoy patio diningIf you enjoy patio dining and good food, this is for you. The Oysters Rockefeller appetizer is truly wonderful and the seafood and steak options are some of the best in town. We always enjoy going to Carmichaels and highly recommend.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst-timeBrought my girlfriend here - it was the first time either of us had been to the restaurant. Server was great in making recommendations and a decent price for a delicious steak. I could imagine the place being romantic but wished it were a little quieter (what could I expect for a Friday night though?). I made reservations, which was great - we were seated within a minute of speaking with the host. Bread was a little cold, and cheese spread kind of tasted like cheese-from-a-can or the kind in the sealed packets with crackers for kids...but the meal itself and the french onion soup were delicious. The steaks more than made up for these slights though - the Al Forno crust was amazing and the butter and garlic was a close second.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BEST PORK CHOPS On the planetWe celebrated my hubby's BIRTHDAY, and it was our first time there. We had never heard of the place or knew of anyone ho had been there. We took a chance and WOW!!!!!!!! We made the right choice. GOTTA try it, you WILL LIKE IT.

Menu has something for everyone from sandwiches to steaks & seafood. My daughter had the salmon, I had skirt steak - both yummy! Our server, YaYa, was the best! The entire staff was friendly. Our cocktails and food arrived in a timely manner for us to enjoy without feeling rushed. The place had a comfortable neighborhood feel. Portions are large enough to share and there is no split charge. Since it was our first time there, we both had leftovers which one of the valets cheerfully put in our car for us while we took advantage of the FREE shuttle to United Center to enjoy Fleetwood Mac! We will definitely be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest kept secret for diningBest kept secret for dining before events at the United Center. The food and service are outstanding and the shuttle is a great bargain. The wait staff is top notch. They always ask if you are attending the event and then make sure to get your dinner in quickly but without rushing you.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ServiceThe food was excellent. We got the oysters rockefeller to start and then the salmon and steak as our entrees. We were in the mood for a bottle of red wine - something to span the meat and fish entrees. Our excellent waiter made a recommendation for an Italian pinot that was spot on - exactly what we were hoping for. It was a quiet night and our waiter let us converse and only interrupted when he knew we wanted some help. I'm glad to have this place within walking distance.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best place in the cityThe best place in the city to first dine and then shuttle over to the United Center for Bulls/Hawks games!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMArrived a half hour late dueArrived a half hour late due to traffic, but they held the reservation..Nice way to begin an evening.

Really enjoy Carmichael's3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to check for UC Events whReservations were for 6:45. There was a hockey game @ United Center so it was quite noisy for a while. By the time my significant other arrived about 7:15, it was very quiet and romantic. Food was excellent and the service was great!! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu selections and made sure we understood as well. Most certainly will be back, but will check United Center schedule first. :)3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great business lunchHad a great business lunch at Carmichaels.
