  • Great Steak

    The steak was great. The staff was overwhelmed with tables, so service was not the best. They have this picture of downtown Chicago that is lit up as if you were cruising on Lake Michigan and this was your view (very tacky). People bring their kids there, not sure why. Overall, there are better steak houses. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday, but we won't be returning.

    George runs a friendly yet highly professional operation based on great meat (and other items), perfectly prepared with friendly but upscale service. When we are in the Schaumburg area, this is where we go for great steaks! (And, try the bacon sticks as an appetizer!)

    I ordered the lamb chops, quite expensive, and they arrived with the bones completely charred black, and the chops were rather dry and tasteless. Very disappointing considering the expense. My wife ordered the salmon, and it also was rather dry. I don't think I will be returning to the Chicago Prime Steakhouse, too expensive and the quality just isn't there.

    From the moment you walk in, prepare yourself to be pampered. The staff is professional, friendly, and goes out of their way to please your every need. The bar scene along with live music (The Pete Show) is just amazing. George, the owner, works the room like a true professional; greeting every table as family. Thank you, George, for Chicago Prime and for spoiling all your customers! Gil & Laura

    We returned to Chicago Prime recently for a birthday dinner, and weren't disappointed. The service, food and wine selection provided the special occasion experience we were looking for. Steak and seafood are excellent here. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and eager to provide the information you need to make the meal and wine choices that will suit your taste. Each time we have dined here, my husband has said the filet is one of the best steaks he's had in his life. Perfect!

    I have eaten at many steak houses in the Chicagoland area. But our expierence at Chicago Prime Steak House was not enjoyable. We walk in and the expectation were high. The ambiance was good. Wine list is very limited. The staff wasn't well informed with the wine list. They didn't know the vinatge of the wine we order it was a Nickel and Nickel. The service was slow plates after each course were left on our table for an extended period of time. The maine course I had the Special Canjun Delmonico with a greasy oilly sauce it wasn't prepared medium rare and the sauce had a burnt taste to it. It wasn't very special. The others had steaks which were okay. I have had better meals at the Capital Grill for this kind of price tag.

    I had a great experience. I made a reservation for a Friday night for my boyfriends birthday. Our server was great. He was very knowledgeable on the menu and had great recommendations. The owner was circulating the room introducing himself to all of customers. I thought it was a nice touch that the owner wore the same coats as the waitstaff. I will definitely be coming back in the future.

    I chose this restaurant because I wanted to have a very special dining experience that evening. Well, the waiter was good - BUT. I ordered a grey goose martini straight up with a splash of cranberry. the drink was a watered down cosmo! My daughter's martini (also with Grey goose) was not very good at all. 2 steaks were done perfectly , 1 had to get sent back for not being done enough. The char on the steaks was really overdone, too much of a good thing. The Bernaise sauce was watery, not creamy like I've had before. The baked potato was a bit hard, not nice and fluffy like some steak houses. I wouldn't go back here , expecially for the money. I could name several steak houses that I'd rather eat at.

    Well, I made quite the impression by finding this place for a dinner date. What an excellent all-around venue for a romantic evening with someone you're trying to impress. The food was outstanding, the platter of steaks presented by our server really made you realize what a first class selection of steaks they have here. The bar area is a great place to eat your meal, especially on the Thursday night we were there, because the entertainer was very enjoyable. Played a variety of slow and fast 70's, 80's and 90's tunes.

    Sorry, service and ambiance were excellent, but steaks fell short of expectations. Tender as they should be for the price, but not all that tasty. No grilled flavor, no seasonings to speak of. We ordered them without the fancy sauce. Two of the steaks at our tables were overcooked beyond our med rare and medium order, but not worth waiting to have the steaks re-done. Lastly, the website menu is out of date. I had my mouth set for the 6oz filet mignon with onion straws only to find they don't offer that any longer. 6oz is the perfect size, and I really don't want 2 4-ounce ends....I want a prime piece of meat....save the ends for a kabob or sliders. Who eats all those big steaks on the menu? Or are people sharing?

    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.

    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.
