    Celebrated the wife's birthday, no wait with reservation...some places make you wait even if you have a reservation. Food was great, steaks were made correctly, needed a little more seasoning but no complaints. We had a wonderful waiter and never felt rushed. It did get a little loud towards the end of the night, but nothing to major. I mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and brought out a wonderful tasting key lime pie with a candle on the house. For (2) people with drinks, total tab was $157 before tip, but thats what I expected and with quality of food and service, I had no complaint paying that much. BTW, try the wasabi mashed potatoes, they were great.

    I took my fiance to this place for a early sweetest day gift. The restaurant did have a very nice ambiance and the gentleman singing live in the lounge sounded wonderful. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to my expectations. The crab cake was very good. The Moscato wine was excellent but both steaks tasted unseasoned but was very tender. The double baked potato tasted a little charred. I would not go back for the food but I would go back to hear the live singing.

    Have been very happy at Chicago Prime in the past. Very unhappy this time. I hate it when they bring our meals out in the middle of salads. Then my companion's steak was full of fat. As I had complained to the manager about being rushed, I now could not get anyone's attention. Left very unhappy. Worst $ 300.00 dinner I ever had. Manager did try to make us feel better, but it really was too late.

    Went with my Mom, not much else in the Schaumberg area for me. Eaten at Mortons, so-so, really never a good experience, figured we'd try Prime. I had the Land and Sea, one of the steaks was cooked fine (medium well), the other was under cooked (medium rare at best!). I asked them to reheat, wasn't two minutes and it was back out cooked through completely! I've cooked enough personally and professionally to know "Chef Mike" handled this. Instead of owning up, they tell me the oven is at 1800 degrees and cooks them instantly. I don't think so. Too many holes in that story! But they quickly took it back and cooked me another that was perfect. I'll try again, the steak was very good. Oh yeah, and my Mom's steak was great as well!

    We had a wonderful experience at Chicago Prime. Service was very attentive without being too intense. Mike did a great job taking care of us. The steaks at Chicago Prime are as good as any of the top tier steakhouses, and the prices are probably 20% less - a great value. The salad was very good. The baked potato (we shared one) is huge and very tasty. My wife had the filet, and it was tasty and tender. I had the NY strip, which was very flavorful and just the right texture. Nice job!

    The steak melted in my mouth. The lobster was perfectly cooked and presented free of shell to me. Even the ranch dressing on my salad was delicious. There was just the right amount of cheese in the french onion soup. The creme brulee was filled with real vanilla bean. Neither of us had to ever do more than raise our head to make contact with the waiter. My water was filled without me asking. Perfect service. Perfect. Will absolutely come back.

    My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary on Saturday. Our Server, Armand Paole was FANTASTIC! He was very attentive to every detail, polite and energetic, yet tactful and knew when to make himself present, checking on drinks and food, and when to stay away, as it was, after all, our wedding anniversary dinner :) Armand has a great sense of humor, cracking jokes at times. My NY steak was under-cooked, but Armand returned it in no time at the perfect temp. Now I know for future reference - Medium-Plus to Well. Thanks Armand for the tip! My husband's Bone-In Ribeye was cooked to perfection and had a great char, which he loved. Overall it was a fantastic dining experience. Ron and I will definitely be back.

    While I don't eat steak, I took my nephew there for his birthday as he is a steak lover. He said his steak was good, not great. I had salmon which was good but the vegetables were swimming in oil/butter and were uneatable. We would not return as the food was not very good. Service however was excellent.

    I made this reservation for my son's birthday. It was someplace he had wanted to go, so I thought I would give it a chance. I expected a pricey dinner, and it was. I also expected an exceptional meal, it wasn't. The food was something I could get at any moderate restaurant like Outback or Wildfire, but I could get it there for at least half the price with similar or better service. Of specific concern was the waiter who needed to take a shower and the ribeye that was tough. ( how you make a tough ribeye, I don't know )

    Nice time. Bone in ribeye was excellent cooked perfectly My mom had the lamb chops which she Loved. Buffalo thai shrimp appetizer a must they were excellent with a bit of a kick. The only thing I did not enjoy was the lobster mac and cheese it was definitely an off night for especially for $17. I last visited in November and it was the best I'd ever had and actually would have paid more so im not sure what happened. If you have room for dessert or like me I had to take it to go but the tiramisu was excellent. Everyone was pleasant the owner went around greeting everyone which was nice. The only reason I deducted a star was the lobster mac and cheese. But overall great food for the price. I don't mind paying the price for great quality.

    My girlfriend and I went here for our 1 year anniversary the other night, and it was just really unfortunate. First off, we get there, and the host looks at us very awkwardly, as if he was shocked that people just walked in the door...it was really strange and set an off mood right off the bat. Also, is there no dress code here? We decided to go to Chicago Prime because it was supposedly a "nicer ambiance" and WE somehow felt overdressed by wearing nicer dresses...really? Most diners were in jeans & tees...some even crop tops! The rest of the night was awkward as well, from the bus boy tossing our silverware on the table, to the negligent server. The food was alright, but the ambiance and service were terrible. We will never go here again.

    First off, let me say that the food was excellent. We had a group of 6 and everyone enjoyed their food. Decor is ok...but not special. Service for us was poor. It dragged out despite communicating to our server up front that we wished to have expedited service. (It took 30 minutes after being seated to give our order.) They had live music in the bar area but it was so loud that we chose to wait at the front desk for our table.

    Always great professional service from start to finish. Nice table spacing, great atmosphere. Steak is always first rate. Low noise level in the dining room. Bar too loud to have a conversation when they have a performer. Generous servings of wine and liquor. Overall food is great. Only complaint is their affinity to over-oil many things; the octopus, the vegetables the Ahi appetizer... Other than that all is good.

    Prime is their name and it fits, even after many dinners, they never cease to amaze ! The food is absolutely wonderful. I went off the reservation and ordered chicken. "Brick Chicken" was truly amazing probably the best I have ever eaten. My wife's steak was terrific. The "Steakhouse " portions were beyond belief. And George is still a wonderful host !!! I will continue to return time and again.

    This was our first visit to Chicago Prime and overall I was very happy with the experience. The food was very good and cooked properly and I felt like we were probably at one of the better steakhouses in the burbs. Ambiance was just so-so. Wasn't too loud or too quiet but I was surprised that the place wasn't packed for a Saturday night. No complaints in terms of getting a reservation! This is an expensive restaurant - look at the menu beforehand. But that aside, I'd recommend it.

    We ordered filets that were good. It came with a salad and that was all. Any sides were extra. I understand that the filets were a good cut of meat but a small salad was the only thing included. For the price, I felt a vegetable should have been included. The service was outstanding. My wife has food allergies and the waitress was on top of everything making sure she was safe.
