A word from Chicago Cut Steakhouse
Chicago Cut Steakhouse redefines Chicago's steak-centric dining scene with signature USDA-certified prime beef, which is hand cut and dry aged on site. A variety of made-to-order cuts are joined by eight different fish options, shellfish, chops, an array of hearty side dishes and more on the extensive dinner menu. The restaurant also serves the city's best "power breakfast," as well as a dynamic lunch service featuring carving stations in the bar area with prime rib, ham and turkey. Chicago Cut's expansive surroundings feature a lively bar area framed by dramatic wine display cases; vibrant red velvet banquettes and spacious dining tables; and sweeping views of the Chicago River. A sprawling outdoor patio lining the riverside attracts diners throughout the day and well into the evening. Special touches abound, such as the restaurant's global wine list, which is presented to the guest via an interactive iPad program.

    It was very crowded and very loud. My partner and I took her mother out to dinner, and she was overwhelmed by the noise and how packed it is. Otherwise we loved it. Our server was awesome - very attentive, accommodating, flexible, polite, etc. All of the staff were amazing actually. Thanks!

    Our waiter was very personable and pleasant. he was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable. he knew from my reservation that i wanted to try the prime rib and he made sure it was available even before we were seated and met him. prime rib was one of the best i have ever had. i come to Chicago every year and this restaurant will be my new favorite Chicago restaurant.

    We were seated very quickly. Our server was friendly. 2 of the the 4 steaks had to be sent back. While waiting our wives steaks got cold. The management came over and gave us his business card and one piece of cake to split ? For $500 which incl only 3 cocktails sorry just not worth it. Portions very small..

    We are from Ottawa, Canada, and have visited Chicago once or twice a year for the past 8 years. This has given us the opportunity to dine at most of the popular steak restaurants in the city. This is by far our favourite! We make a point of going back. Exceptional service combined with energetic ambience, and just the best filet mignon that I have ever tasted.

    Overall, had a great lunch-the lobsterscargot is amazing and one order was fine for the four of us to each have a taste as an appetizer. Tuna and Halibut dishes were outstanding. Two of us had the daily special of trio of filets for lunch and ordered them rare---only one medallion was rare and the other two were medium on both of our plates. Very disappointed. Wine list was excellent---could use a broader and more unique beer selection.

    This was my second time dining here. I had reservations but had to eat in the bar because our entire party was not there at the time of reservation, but the staff did a great job accommodating us. The food, the wine the atmosphere was awesome. It was a loud in the resturant but it was energetic. I will definately be back.

    We were a party of 5 on a Sunday night. I've been here a few times and always leave with the same impression. Although the food is great they just have way too many tables packed into the dining room. You are right on top of the other diners. I was very disappointed in how rushed we were. Plates were cleared before everyone was done, on each course. Particularly disappointing, they took my mothers plate after she had put her last bite of steak on her fork! Literally lifting her fork to her mouth with no plate! Really?! It wasn't that busy by this point, that was unnecessary. It was an expensive meal and we were too rushed, I don't think I will go back.

    Chicago Cut is far and away the best Restaurant in Chicago. Its superior service, its outstanding food and its breathtaking views of the city cant be matched anywhere in the city. The best experience by far I have had in a restaurant! Matt & David and their staff are very attentive and this only sets the bar higher for the food, but don't worry you will not be disappointed. Every crumb on the plate is perfectly cooked and presented. Their attention to detail and absolute dedication to this restaurant is to be applauded. Can't wait to return.

    This has to be the one of the most overhyped gimmicky restaurants I've been at.. The food was overcooked,way over priced for the quality and the service was below average. The dining experience was similar to eating in the middle of a trading pit. No way to hold a conversation without yelling at the top of your lungs. layout of the restaurant is awful with a large dining area bottlenecked with a narrow entrance. The tables were tiny with a large row in a narrow aisle where the guest in the aisle is constantly being bumped by wait staff and guests navigating the aisle . Not recommended by any stretch

    We had dinner at Chicago Cut Steakhouse last weekend based on an article we'd read that their bacon burger was one of the best in the country. We were not disappointed! The burger and hand cut fries were outstanding. Only downside was the waiter, who was very enthusiastic when he first greeted us, lost all interest once we ordered burgers instead of the more expensive dinners. We never saw him after he took our order until he dropped off the check.

    This was a great place - food was delicious and served piping hot. If it wasn't for the feeling of being rushed through our meal and rushed away - it would have made our bill feel a little less concerning. Based on the food - the price was fair but customers should be allowed to stay and enjoy what they're paying for. Overall -terrific food but don't come here to enjoy hand holding and talking.

    I think the noice level should have an option - cannot hear the person sitting next to you. Energetic is positive word. When the acoustics are so bad you cannot hear the person next to you there is a problem. The food was overpriced for the quality and presentation. I don't mind paying for great food - but in this case I paid for mediocre food. The filets were about 3ounces after cooking and they arrived solo on a big plate looking burnt. Nothing else was on the plate - pathetic. The waiter was efficient. Everyone in my party felt rushed. He was not personable or engaging at all. We appeared to be a bother. When we asked about dessert he rattled them off so fast I had no idea what he said - so we skipped dessert.

    My wife and I went here for our anniversary since fulton's on the river closed and it was a good experience. We both felt a little rushed through our meal. The staff was attentive but it was pretty clear they were doing their best to keep us fast and on their pace rather than the other way around. The steaks were phenomenal and the oysters were outstanding. Great wine too. Just wish we had some more time.

    We went to celebrate a family occasion, and experienced very rare service with delicious food. Service was attentive, and meticulous. Share appetizers and side dishes were reportedly served "family style" but the waiter served everyone in our group meticulously portioned individual plates from the sharable dishes. We had a variety of steaks, and each enjoyed our selection very much. They even accommodated special requests on doggy bags. A wonderful experience.

    I would not come back to eat here. We sat right next to where waiters drop off and clear their plates. (Very Noisy) Our steaks arrived before our appetizers only to be sent back. We were told that the same steak would not be sent out. When our steaks were brought out quickly after we were done our appetizers they were cold only to make me feel as though they had been sitting in the kitchen and I was lied to. I cancelled other reservations to come here only to be disappointed. Not the experience you would expect from a high end restaurant.

  • Unfortunate Credit Card Scam
    JohnnyMc
    Dined on 10/2/2014
    We booked restaurant for a special occasion and unfortunately my credit card got mixed up with another patron with a similar name, and subsequently went "missing" for 10 minutes until they found the other patron. This would not have been a problem except the extraordinary charge on my card I was notified of via email from my credit card company when I got home. The credit card company straightened this out but I was disappointed in the manager of The Cut who told me he would look into and call me right back. Still no call. Obviously, credit card security is not a big issue with the restaurant. Beware.

    I took clients here for dinner on 10/2 and had an excellent experience. The waiter was fantastic; very knowledgeable, attentive, professional. Service was outstanding all the way around and I had possibly the BEST filet I have every had! Cooked perfectly, VERY flavorful, and I could cut it with a butter knife. Great wine list, but check the vintage closely. The one I selected from the menu did not match what he brought. My only complaint was that we were packed in like sardines and the place was so noisy that I couldn't really talk to my client at the other end of the table and there were only 5 of us. This was my first time here, so I am not sure if this is typical or an anomaly. I will definitely be back and my clients LOVED it!

    I came here for a client lunch, and while the food and service were amazing, the noise level made talking very difficult. The tables are very close to each other, which isn't unusual, but the noise level was just too much. If you're going to discuss business, I would suggest going after 1:30 when it settled down a bit. I think I'll reserve CCS for personal outings.

    Looking for a place that's both newer & nostalgic, Chicago Cut fits that bill to a T. From our exuberant waiter Justin, comfortable clubby atmosphere, an extensive drink list on Ipad, yet serves the best iced tea (is it lavender?) and coffee in Chicago - dinner was exceptional! Took a friend to celebrate her birthday and Justin did everything to make her feel special, from expert explanations to a dessert gratis of the steakhouse. The delmonico, filet, caeser salad, brussels sprouts, truffled scalloped potatoes, berry cobbler were all excellent. It was an unintended surprise to be seated adjacent to Blackhawk, Andrew Shaw's table!! Just an all-around, absolutely lovely evening of delicious food, wonderful service and fabulous views!!
