Chicago Cut Steakhouse
Lovely dining experienceWent to dinner expecting it to be good but it was superb. Food was fantastic, service attentive but not intrusive and pricing expected for Chicago. The only drawback was being a visitor to the city I was not aware how often the train would come through to drown any conversation. What the restaurant controlled was perfect but would suggest they consider asking patrons if the train sounds would be disruptive to them. Just a thought.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the menu and outdoorI love the menu and outdoor seating! i cant wait to come back!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Prime Rib in ChicagoI ate a lot of Prime Rib in my time and this truly is Prime Beef ...that ican be called Prime Rib.

Very pleasent and knows her wine...she was very helpful when making our selection.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst outside lunch of the SpringFinally had a nice day to eat outside so we made the most of it and had lunch at Chicago Cut.

I loved the lively atmosphere of the place!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful treatWe went there for an early Mother's Day dinner and the place was packed at even 5.30 pm. We requested a table by the window.and were graciously accomodated. The view was spectacular and the room warm and bustling, but not too loud. The service was good, the food excellent. I liked the fact tha tthe dinner menu had options at different price points (although we all ordered steaks!!) as did the wine list. The files, the skirt steak and the delmonico were perfectly cooked and presented. The scalloped potatoes and lobster mac and cheese were great. The dessert -- a chocolate raspberry cake was outstanding, a great finale.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoodExcellent filet mignon, wedge salad, tuna tartare and lobster mac and cheese. I do not like creamed spinach but my table mates said it wasn't their favorite.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceWe were 3 and had a 9PM reservation. Our show ended earlier and we could come by 6:15PM on a Friday evening. They were very flexible and found us a table immediately. Great food, delicious steaks and lamb chops.

Servers were alert but not hovering over you. Great place, highly recommend it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Steakhouse worth a visitI booked a reservation here during a business trip to Chicago as they were rated in the top 20.
Let me say the service by the staff was impeccable. They were very attentive and so courteous.
But where they really shined was the great steaks and food. The flavor was awesome, the cooking and grilling was perfect.
They have outdoor seating and I would recommend trying for that if possible.
So I would go back once I visit Chicago again.
Awesome place!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat top-shelf Chicago restaurant.Great top-shelf Chicago restaurant. Open glass dining room, with river balcony and river view over North Loop make the ambience.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat expereince!I had a great experience on my visit to Chicago Cut. They food was really good, especially the bone-in filet and the truffle scalloped potatoes. Our table wasn't ready at the reservation time but I've worked in the restaurant industry and you can't always control how long guests dine, especially at the prices they are paying in fine dining. The service was fantastic!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great night chill out with friendThe service there was just excellent. smart people working there.

It rivals them all. The staff is knowledgable and helpful. The food is stellar . The sides are great as well. The asparagus in particular was grilled to perfection as was the massive twenty four ounce bone in ribeye. The Cajun seasoning was spot on and the steak was succulent and flavorful. All around , it was a fine dinning experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steak ever. LoveThe best steak ever. Love the decor and the service4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI said the service was outstanding,I said the service was outstanding, however, by the time we sat down and ordered, they had our food on the table. It was blatantly obvious that they were trying to turn the table, and we had to sit with our food on the table getting cold just to spread some time.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe soft shell crab sandwichThe soft shell crab sandwich on special was perfect for a lunch portion. They should keep that on the menu.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waitress was very VERYThe waitress was very VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, she helped up make great selections! The food was excellent, the ambiance was superb.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat first time experienceWe came here for dinner on our anniversary, which fell on a Wednesday. It was jam packed, but we were lucky enough to get seated right by the window that over looked the river. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The food came out very quickly, and was delicious. They presented everything very well and even gave us a complimentary cake for our anniversary! I had the fillet and my husband had the New York Strip. My fillet was just as they described it would be, as i had requested medium-rare-plus. It was very juicy and just melted in your mouth. I would definatly go back again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant always enjoy itExcellent attentive service. Great food and a good atmosphere. Not much more to say!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!

Great waiter - Bryant
Highly recommend Chicago Cut - on the top of my list with Joes!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough the wine list isAlthough the wine list is quite extensive. I found it to be a few dollars a bottle more expensive than similar restaurants in the loop.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fabulous time. TheWe had a fabulous time. The service was spot-on and the food was fantastic. The interactive wine list offered to us on an iPad made ordering fun. The noise level was fine and allowed for conversation, which was a nice change of pace. The music is often blaring at other restaurants making it impossible to visit. We really loved the skyline view from our table too.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMRequest to be seated with Wes!I have to say that the reason I chose this place was because they had a vegetarian option other than salad. Their vegetable stack was amazing. Wes was our server and was fantastic. He was able to answer all of my questions regarding which dishes were and weren't veg friendly and wasn't annoyed that a vegetarian was seated in his section. Usually servers are MIA or over attentive/disruptive...Wes was neithter. His service was great and added to our fantastic experience. The next time I go back I will be requesting his section.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTodd was our server, the foodTodd was our server, the food was excellent but a bit pricey.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent and I will be aExcellent and I will be a customer for life. I am going to bring my folks there for dinner.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our meal at ChicagoWe enjoyed our meal at Chicago Cut and the service was good but we did feel a bit rushed. In fact, we were done with a full dinner (cocktails, salads, entree, dessert) in 1 1/2 hours. There are plenty of other steakhouses at this level where that would not be the case. That said, the space is beautiful.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYUM-MEEEE!We had the best birthday celebration! The dinner was bookended with wonderful scallops and a pineapple upside downcake! YUM-MEEEE! I would definitely recommend it!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Chicago's best steakhouses!Excellent steaks - the best I've had in years. Very professional service. Great atmosphere and view on the river. I will be back!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways going backCut never fails to provide the best dining experience in Chicago. Great food, awesome service, and overall an awesome restaurant.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and decor.Excellent food and decor. Tables are really squeezed closely and it was very loud--could barely hear my guest when he spoke.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in Chicago visitingWe were in Chicago visiting for the first time and after speaking with several different people decided on either Chicago Cut or Gibson's. Although Gibson's is a Chicago favorite, we decided to stay close to our hotel and give Chicago Cut a try. We were very happy with the prompt service and overall ambiance. They were attentive down to the littlest detail. I will absolutely go back.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to have BrunchGreat place to have Brunch (good value for money), lunch and dinner menu are great too even price is fair for the food and location. I strongly recomend the Brunch and as a Steak house too. Staff are very friendly and you can feel that it is run by the owner.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery bite of food that weEvery bite of food that we had was spectacular...the steak was so tender you barely had to cut it! The wine list is quite extensive which is impressively displayed on an iPad. Service was out of this world, our server Todd was quite knowledgable and friendly without being pushy. A small mishap where a busser spilled a glass of water was quickly tended to with napkins, and they even rotated the table for us when we indicated we may want to sit on the other side to be out of the main walkway.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was great -- went hereThis was great -- went here on a whim and enjoyed the food. The drinks and starters were great, the steak was good, and the desserts were phenomenal. I liked the atmosphere, including the city views, and would have rated Excellent if the steak was just a smidge more flavorful.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Business Lunch SpotBest service in town! The staff and management could not be nicer, more accommodating or more professional. The atmosphere is more akin to a NYC vs CHG in terms of people watching and ambiance. I am IN LOVE with the french fries and the lobster salad. Frankly, I am not much of a carnivore but, despite this, Chicago Cut is my favorite business lunch spot in town.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wonderful serviceWe spent our 25th wedding anniversary here and it was fabulous. Our waiters brought out a dessert on the house with a candle to celebrate. Nice touch. Our food was perfect, delicious and plentiful. Our waiters really made us feel special with the room full of people and very busy. I can't imagine picking a better place to celebrate.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't missA must for great steaks in Chicago! You will be blown away by the food and the small army that swarms the table when your meal is served.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bone-in ribeye was oneThe bone-in ribeye was one fo the very best steaks I have ever had in Chicago. My wife had the trio of lobster tails that were perfect. Will definitely be back.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to take my friendsWanted to take my friends from NYC to a real Chicago steak house. With all the upscale steak house chains now, there are not too many real Chicago steak houses unique to Chicago. Chicago Cut fit the bill. Did it ever! It was a little noisy, and the room much smaller than I would have thought. But the steaks and sides were superb. I've been to most of the premium steak houses in Chicago, and really this place (its hard to imagine)is a cut (no pun intended) above. My friend fom NYC had whitefish (I guess he is into a health trip or something). He said it was superb. The rest of us had steak: NY cut. We all agreed they were excellent and cooked exactly as requested. The appatizers and deserts were also superb; particularly the chocolate cake.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great restaurantThis is a great restaurant for special occasions but due to the price I would not make this a place to attend often unless you are financially stable. Great experience!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks and fish are excellent.The steaks and fish are excellent. The hottest lunch spot in town. The service at every point is outstanding. The staff is eager to accomodate and gets to know its customers. It is my go-to lunch spot but getting a reservation is getting harder.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Thoroughly Enjoyable Experience!This is fast becoming one of my favorite places to dine in the Chicago area. This is a first class act all around. You do pay for the experience, to be sure, but it is well worth it. Figure on about $80.00 per person without spirits. That includes a three course meal with some high end choices that are simply out of this world. Great for a personal rendezvous for your significant other or celebratory outing with colleagues and friends. Chicago is known for its steak houses. This one is definitely one of the best.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite steak house inMy favorite steak house in Chicago. The service was impeccable as always. Highly recommend!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFor Important Business LuncheonsThis resaturant has consistently had a high level of service since its opening up to today. Great selection on the menu. I choose this spot for important business meetings and often recommend to friends when they want a top end restaurant that embodies the best of Chicago. Great service is delivered without the snootiness of similar high end restaurants.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstandingFantastic food and outstanding service. If you have the budget and enjoy a steakhouse experience you will not be disappointed. I found the service was memorable and made the night special.
