    Most of our group had steaks and I had the sea bass. The food was good. Some of the food was a bit too salty-especially the sea bass (but still cooked perfectly). The pot roast nachos were great and the calamari was very good as well. Our server was fabulous as was the bartender. We ordered three deserts and all were quite good. We will come back again for sure! Oh we were seated right away and it was crowed. Love that the hostesses didn't just push us to the bar like some other restaurants. Always enjoy Ditka's.

    We took a visitor from out of town here and had a great experience. When we arrive, our table wasn't quite ready to we grabbed a seat at the bar. The bartender was extremely helpful and went above and beyond. We were seated shortly after and our server's name was Shane. From the very start he did a great job, was very friendly, and made excellent recommendations. We were a little worried about taking our visitor out to the Oakbrook location because we had only been to the one downtown, but this location still exceeded our expectations. All of the food was prepared very well, the fillets with crab cakes on top is my favorite thing on the menu along with the lobster mac and cheese. We will definitely be back!

    My wife and I went to Ditka's for our wedding anniversary. We were greeted with complimentary champagne. The filet slider appetizers were tremendous. The prime rib was great. The pork chop was even better. It was large enough to provide a meal for the next evening as well. The flourless chocolate cake capped off a great evening. We will be returning in the future.

    When we were seated Shane (our server) brought over 2 glasses of bubbly to wish us a very Happy Anniversary and the celebration was on! Started off the meal with the French Onion Soup and Sherry Crab Bisque which both were just dynamite. Followed up by the main course of Crab Cakes and Fillets, a real winner for sure. The sides were double baked potato (trust me when I say BIG enough for 2 maybe 3 people) and Corn tamale cake. Desert was a most awesome double chocolate flourless cake and believe me you wouldn't know that with the taste. AWESOME is the better description. And do try the Bloddy Mike, all my wife said was MMMMMM! It made for an extremely enjoyable evening! This was our first visit and they will see us again and again.

    We came here to celebrate a birthday for my boyfriend. When we left he said that this is where we should come for all birthdays and anniversaries! Great service. And while it was expensive I feel like we got more for our money than other steakhouses.

    Me and my darling wife had a wonderful wedding anniversary dinner at Ditka's (we are both BIG football fans). Jackie, our server, was very courteous and knowledgeable about the items on the menu. The booth we sat in was deep and intimate, even though we choose to be near the bar screens for MNF. My prime rib was deliciously broiled, with a crisp outer crust, and my wife's NY ribeye bone in steak was flavorful. I recommend getting a BOWL of the crab bisque, you'll regret any portion smaller. The lobster mac and cheese was a show stopper with real bits of lobster, creamy cheese, and crunchy topping. For dessert, the flourless chocolate cake was like an airy truffle, not heavy at all. Will be going back soon.

    I called at 5 for last minute reservation they told me not until 8:30. I went on open table and got the 8:15. We arrived at 7:50 and it was EMPTY. Wide open seating at the bar & they were able to seat us right away. Our waitress provided the worst service possible. She took our order and then stopped by once to see if we needed anything later. I ordered an iced tea which she never asked if I needed sugar nor to refill the glass. Never came by to thank us after paying. There were 4 of us and we all agreed and shocked at the service at such a famous steakhouse. We were there from 7:50 - 10:30 and we saw our waitress twice. I expect more when spending $400. She didn't work for a 1/4 of the $80 tip my husband left.

    The food and service are always outstanding here, but I was disappointed with the overall vibe of our experience this time. Unfortunately, my wedding anniversary falls near Sweetest Day, so it was super crowded even at 6 PM. I made a reservation weeks in advance. We were seated in literally the back most corner of the restaurant, which isn't exactly as awesome as the front near the bar. Also, the table was about 2 feet away from the service table where the bussers stood. It felt like they were standing over us. It made this expensive dinner completely unromantic. I don't mind paying for a good meal. It is worth every cent as far as the food. But we don't get out often, so this was really disappointing.

    Made reserv. with note that we were celebrating a birthday. Got stuck in traffic. CALLED and asked them not to give our table up. Got there 10 min late - was told the only table available was a booth in the bar, that there was a 30 minute wait if that wasn't agreeable. Not wanting to wait, we took what was offered. Bad choice. Noise level was LOUD, was difficult to have a conversation in the booth. Server was professional, but disappeared when we asked for a few min to look at the wine list. Bread wasn't brought to the table until AFTER we had ordered wine, FINISHED appetizers, ordered mains. No mention of the birthday by the server. This was our first visit, and with all the other fine dining options in Oakbrook area, will be the last.

    We were looking for a nice round table - they did it. Looking for a good Sunday meal with friends, they did it. Looking for efficient service and they flunked. Plus the place was too loud for conversation. With such good food, Durkas need to tone it down somewhere in the restaurant.

    Ditka's in Oakbrook IL is great. Took friends out for their anniversary and had a great time. The best food I have eaten at a restaurant in a long time, and I have been to several "good" restaurants recently. Service was excellent and although crowded it was still comfortable. My husband and I are planning to go back soon. We really were impressed with the quality of the food and cocktails. My husband had New York Strip, I had Shrimp Diavolo, our friends had pork chops and Chicken Piccata. Everyone was happy with their selections.

    It was a surprise for our Anniversary - it was a great experience and have already decided we are going back with the family. Would recommend to all that have not been to one of his restaurants. Even told family in Arizona to go and check it out. Priced well for any food lover and loved that they also have many items that are for allergies, these show up right on the menu and you do not have to ask what a way to gain more business.

    Ditka's made our 5 year anniversary celebration very special. The waiter started by saying happy anniversary, and ended our experience with 2 glasses of champagne and flour-less chocolate cake...complementary. Truly a spectacular evening from beginning to end. The meal was outstanding, from the DELICIOUS and FRESH seafood platter to start, the fresh bread, the AMAZING sea bass special and my husbands perfectly cooked filet, to the cocktails and wine, each bite was wonderful. We took a raspberry cheesecake home to eat the next day...also amazing. The staff was polite, attentive and made excellent recommendations the 4 times I asked!!! Our waiter William was awesome! we will definitely be going back.
