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.

    CCS is supposedly the best steakhouse in Chicago by multiple professional and laymen circles. I love steak and have eaten at two to three dozen prime steakhouses all over Chicago, the U.S. and Western Europe. My wife and I were both stunningly underwhelmed by our steaks at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse. My boneless NY Strip and her bone-in Ribeye were both lacking flavor. We ordered medium and got medium-well. My addition of Au Poivre was done recklessly with overloaded seared in black peppercorns (sauce on the said as I requested) turned out to be a huge mistake. The sides of mashed potatoes and fresh corn were delicious. But a $251 tab for two celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary, our home city's premiere steakhouse bombed.

    I went with three co-workers. We all decided to order different steaks. The bone-in prime rib was everyone's favorite. They seem to roast it then grill it. Tastes like a grilled steak on the outside and prime rib on the inside.

    I had pick this restaurant for my girlfriends birthday since neither one of us had been to it. It was on Monday 9/15 and it was quite busy for a Monday but we were seated a couple of minutes before our actual reservation. The noise level was a bit busy but not overwhelming. the food was great. I had the Delmonico Steak because I love the fat flavor of the steak and it was cooked to perfection. I also had their whipped sweet potatoes and they were so creamy and tasty. our server was great and we never had to wait on him or look for him to ask for anything. I think this could be a great romantic place if caught on the right night.

    My husband and I went to Chicago Cut for our one year anniversary- everything from being congratulated on our anniversary as soon as we arrived to the complimentary dessert we received was amazing! We were also lucky enough to be seated by the window overlooking the river. Our server was personable, knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. Food-wise, I had the butternut squash soup while my husband had the French au gratin- both fantastic. I also had the filet oscar and he had the New York strip- again, both were perfect! It was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.

    Went here for my wife's birthday. Service was impeccable. Unlike most steakhouses doesn't have a staid , old school feeling. Great view of the City. Steaks were spot on. Our server couldn't have been more professional and anticipated our needs. Not a big "meat eater" any more but this is where I will come to get my fix.

    Have been there many times and this time was for my wife's birthday. Seated as soon a we walk in and bread and water showed up at once. My wife ordered the white fish and said it was the best she ever had. I had a steak and it was out standing. The asparagus was perfect and a nice size portion. The birthday cake they brought was extremely good.

    food was extraordinary, never had a steak this good in my life. only downside: very crowded & extremely high noise level - had to shout in order for the waitress to understand us. plus if you'd like to drink more than one glass of wine, order a whole bottle right away - it will definitely be cheaper...

    Waiter was very nice but the place was jammed and VERY loud. Hot appetizers arrived cold. Steaks were good.....except one of our party's steak was the wrong cut and had to be re-cooked. Sides were just ok. One was never delivered, yet we were charged for it. Waiter did comp dessert for a birthday at our table. A mixed bag....

    They have taken on the Gibsons model of hustling through their patrons despite very high price points. It is the hot place now, they will have a run and then will wonder what happened. felt pushed and hurried, unnecessary. Steaks are decent, but no better than other places.

    Medium rare filet was cooked perfectly and could be cut with a fork. Don't shy away from the skirt steak, it was huge and very tasty. Cool iPad bar menu. Only complaint was in the lack of spiced rum, but realized Chicago isn't big on it.

    This restaurant is a must do! Food is amazing...no complaints. I highly recommend the lobsterscargot appetizer, the Oreo/mint pie, and the sea salt caramel ice cream. Mmmmm! My filet was also cooked perfectly and very tender. I highly recommend the outdoor seating when weather permits. The river view makes you truly appreciate this wonderful city. The restaurant is modern and elegant, but tends to draw an older, more professional crowd.

    Went there for a birthday dinner, than 3 days later back for Sunday brunch. The dinner food was incredibly delicious. Had the lobster and beef. The vegetables, sautéed spinach and hash browns were oversized for two, and made to perfection. Sunday brunch, sat outside on the river enjoying the view. Had the crab and avocado appetizer. Both had the split pea soup. Very delicious. Waiters were extremely attentive. Recieved dessert on the house. Enjoyed soaking up the Chicago atmosphere. We think, the place to go in the city.

    You can't beat this location. Views of the river are nice. I love a good steak and measure steaks at fine dining restaurants with a ribeye. The steak was ok and that's it. For this level of a restaurant, my expectation was better. The side items, wine and dessert were very good. It's worth trying once unless you hate noise and go on a weekend.

    So noisy we could not even think. Except for the meat, all the food was good. However, my 6 oz filet was over cooked. The 8 oz filet had grizzle in it! The prime rib was good but not great. Elliott was a very thoughtful waiter. And all the service people were very good. Will not return to this restaurant nor recommend it to others. We did not feel we got our money's worth.

    Steaks: Top 10 in Chicago Sides: average Wine list: decent selection, but ridiculously overpriced (3x-4x retail) I've been here 3 times in the last year. The first time was okay, the 2nd time was really good, and the last time was terrible. I actually had the owner say to me, and I quote: "I'm in business to make money. I can't give away the house. There are no exceptions to this policy," when we asked him to "let" us pay another $25 corkage to open a 2nd bottle of outside wine, since no one told us about their 1-bottle limit before we picked a bottle to open. Save yourself the time and hit up Bavette's, Gibson's, Joe's or David Burke's for a better meal. I'd rather line the pockets of someone less short-sighted and greedy.

    We arrived a little early to get a drink at the bar and enjoy the ambience. The bar area was a very poor experience. Took 35 minutes to get drink, despite not being very busy. I asked the waitress twice for a menu, 4 times for a glass of water, and twice for my drink. Very poor show. Fortunately the service in the restaurant was phenomenal, we were given a great table, a lot of help navigating the wine-list, and generally had a fantastic experience. The food was excellent. We had the Lostercargots, Tuna Tartare, both of which were exceptional - the lobstercargots in particular is an unbelievably rich and delicious dish - would come back just for this!!!! Steaks + wine = excellent!

    Everybody knows Chicago is a great steak town. There are many wonderful restaurants that feature beef, large portions, lots of "sides," and a great wine list. Chicago Cut is in the top 5, if not first or second. I took a guest from NY to the "Cut" about 2 years ago. Now, he doesn't want to go anywhere else when he's here. I can't say that I blame him. We sat outside at a riverside table. The weather was very cooperative. The traffic and "L" noise level really didn't detract from the overall experience. Just great food and a great time.
