    We haven't been here for awhile so it was nice to stop in for a couple cocktails and appetizers . We sat at the bar, where I think the service is always best. Pot roast nachos are my favorite. Can't wait too long to go back.

    Food, the Tomahawk was off the chart great! Primary waiter was just average in fact the trainee was far better, but really this did not take away from the meal quality or the overall experience. The cab was Newton Unfiltered, which once it opens up is perfect with a fine bone in steak.

    Paige who was pur server that evening was awesoem! She was so professional and intelligent with menu, I am a food and beverage supervisor and if I could, I would take her to come work for me! She was very quick and respectful, my girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary so at the end she brought us a complimentary cake with a champaigne toast which was delightful. The food was outstanding, complements the chefs, temperatures where on spot! The bussers were also on top of their job, constantly circulating and keeping our waters refilled. Excellent expirience, definately will be returning soon!

    The restaurant was well lit, the server was friendly and made excellent recommendations. We waited longer than expected for beverage/drink refills and that's a 'thing' for me. The restaurant was very clean and not overly busy which allowed for nice conversation. We didn't feel rushed. Excellent halibut and crab legs. A must try!

    Took my parents here for my dad's 80th birthday and to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My parents don't eat much so they split the prime rib, which the restaurant had no problems doing. They said it was the best prime rib they'd ever had. My husband and I had the filet, which was prepared perfectly. The sides were fantastic. We did not have much room for dessert, but they have an extensive ice cream menu, and everyone got a scoop of their favorite! The service was fantastic, and we did not feel rushed at all.

    Service is VIP here, every time. i love that they did not do an autmatic service charge for our group of 6. When you have outstanding service -- people will tip better than the standard (and we did!) because it is well earned. Food is so delicious, and not just the steaks and chops. Chicken piccatta and chilean seabass were enjoyed by our group as well. The kale caesar salad is a refreshing treat (although the dressing could be a bit less pungent) . Ditka's is an excellent place for a business dinner seeking high class food, service and ambiance.

    Maybe it's Chicago in general, but the level of service provided at steak houses is really impressive, and Ditka's is right up there. We went for dinner and were seated in a quiet area of the restaurant, but the lively sports bar area was just around the corner. Still, we really enjoyed our meal, especially the service. The food was delicious, and quantities more than generous. Our favorite item was the ice cream cake (or pie?). I usually take a couple of bites of dessert then let my husband finish, but this time I really couldn't put the spoon down. We will definitely go again.

    My dinner at Ditka's was one of the best meals that I have experienced in my entire life! I have the Sherry crab bisque to start, followed by Mike's salad which was wonderful! I Then had "Da Porkchop" which was the best Porkchop that I have ever eaten! The company of sides, the sweet potato mash in the Apple cherry and apricot chutney were amazing! I ended my meal with Mike's ice cream pie which was huge and decadent and delicious! Thank you, Ditka's for a truly memorable dining experience!

    We had outstanding service. It was Michael's second night at Ditka's but he was a pro. He was able to answer all questions including how many ounces each steak was and what was the best choice for someone who will take leftovers home and reheat. Since I prefer rare beef, I ordered rare prime rib and it was perfect. I ordered the 12 ounce and had half to take home. Even after I reheated it at home it was still pink. This was the best prime rib I ever had. Our sides were creamed spinach and smashed red skin potatoes. The spinach was just fair. Chocolate cake was comped for two birthdays at the table. It was a wonderful dining experience, if a little noisy at the end. I wish people would get sitters and leave their children home.

    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.

    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.
