Excellent choiceWe chose Keefer's without knowing much about it. We walked past earlier in the evening
And we're surprised not to see anyone dining outside which made us a bit nervous
But when arrived it was packed inside and we were seated right away. Excellent service,
Food and ambiance. We will definitely return!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday treatMy Wife and I love the food at Keefer's because everything we have tried so far is the best in it's catagory.

Thanks Kevin for wonderful service and ensuring my daughter and family had a great time!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and MoreOur table really enjoyed the great service and quality of food offerings. Ahi tuna was exceptional as was the Picatta chicken
and my favorite the filet.
All dishes were cooked to perfection and service was exceptional by our waiter John. Chef Hogan stopped by our table
and checked on our level of satisfaction. It was more than a PR visit. He was truly looking for our honest opinion. We told
Him we were truly enjoying our experience.
Wine list was expansive and there were many great choices by the glass which is our preference. This was 2nd vist since
March. We are not Chicago residents and Keefers is destination restaurant anytime we are in town.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great ExperienceGreat neighborhood steakhouse (and more) with a lovely large curved bar for cocktails with booths for dining or drinks next to the windows and plenty of tables in the interior dining area. Impeccable service and friendly wait staff. Our filet mignons were absolutely the best we have ever had which says a lot as we do love our steak in TX. Both my husband and I prefer ours cooked almost to medium well which is a hard feat for many restaurants to accomplish without butterflying the filet but the kitchen did a masterful job of cooking the meat to perfection. We had a great server, Kevin, who was charming and attentive throughout the evening. Would highly recommend Keefer's to anyone and will definitely return the next time we are in Chicago.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood lunch meeting location & menuI have regular business meetings at Keefer's and have never been disappointed with the service and food.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSteakRib eye lunch steak is the best and you have to get the creamed spinach.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious sandwiches for lunchWent there with a colleague for a "farewell" lunch; neither of us had been there before, even though I walk past it everyday. I probably haven't gone before because I sensed that it would be a pricey lunch, and suitable primarily for special occasions. I was very pleased with my food, the service and the overall experience. The menu had many items that sounded delicious. I had a sliced pork belly sandwich, my friend had a London broil sandwich. Both were great. The mixed greens salad that accompanied the sandwich was a bit weak, but the side of green beans was perfect and delicious. Would definitely go back again. It is pricey for an everyday lunch, though, at $20-25 per person, including tip.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steaks everWe went for my bother's 50th. Steaks, sides and salads were great. Desserts were delicious.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGive it a tryKeefer's restaurant is a good restaurant to try. My salmon and potatoes were very good, and my lemon drop was nicely prepared.

One of the best restaurants in Chicago5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a Classic Great Lunch.Great lunch spot. Larger outdoor patio makes it easy for great alfresco dining.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA good place for a lunch whenA good place for a lunch when you need a quiet place to talk.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat reccomendation!Some friends of our dined here a couple of years ago and said it was great. I had the special roasted garlic creamy soup and shared the mustard crusted lamb chops. My husband had a salad and a baked potato. I opted for the avocado salad it was ok but in my opinion it has too much mayo. Over all really enjoyed our experience...5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steakMy wife and I both ordered steaks, and they were delicious. I usually have steak sauce with my steak, but the steak was aged and cooked so well I ate it without any sauce. My wife rated the overall experience (scale 1-10) a 10!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Business LunchesKeefer's is wonderful for business lunches. The food is outstanding, the location is good and the service is very attentive but not annoying. The ambient noise level is conducive to discussions, but the spacing of the tables/booths means that you don't feel like everyone is listening to your conversation.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks and knowledgeable,Great steaks and knowledgeable, efficient yet friendly wait staff. Like our server said 'This is a steak house" They serve them well. Excellent dinner.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak House and MoreKeefer's combines the perfection of a well-tuned steak-house with surprising gourmet (non-steak) cuisine dishes prepared by their amazing French-trained chef to provide the single best dining experience in Chicago. Amazingly, they do this while giving you the personalized attention of yourt favorite neighborhood restaurant. If you haven't tried this place, you should get over there now. It will become your "go-to" place with friends, business associates, family, and on your own when you just want a great place to hang out!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Calamari in the cityNever a dissapointing meal at keefers. Good wait staff, excellent cuts of steak and great seafood choicesThey have the best grilled calamari dish in the city.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe noise level was a bitThe noise level was a bit higher than I would have liked for my mother and my uncle, but not unreasonable. The service was good, but the attentiveness of our waiter could have been a bit better. The entrees were the stars of the evening. All four of the dishes we ordered were cook beautifully and the flavors were fantastic. The portions were huge. The best of the dishes was the special dry-aged new york strip steak.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks were excellent, saladsSteaks were excellent, salads as well. Recommend the grilled calamari appetizer.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the french lentilsKeefer's is a modern steakhouse. On a Saturday night, every table was occupied and the bar was full. The space is modern with hard surfaces and a very high ceiling so the noise level was high, but conversation was easy at our table for two. The fish taco appetizer was recommended by our waiter. The salsa verde was flavorful and had mild heat. Wet aged ribeye and NY strip were prepared expertly to temperature, with great steakhouse flavor that aging brings. The creamed spinach and french green lentils were out of this world. The baked potato was "steamed" and cut open with a knife, so did not have crispy skin or fluffy starch, so falls to "good". Next time we will try one of the other potato options. Otherwise, outstanding!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHogan still knows how to hitHogan still knows how to hit it. Rib eye still the best in town. I try the rest and I come back for the best.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and ambience.Excellent food and ambience.

We will definitely be recommending as well to anyone who is planning a trip to Chicago!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the SwordfishI have been to Kieffer's three years in a row on an annual business trip to Chicago. It is a nice place where you can sit down and talk business and have a great meal. This time the best swordfish I have ever tasted!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the BestThe food, service and ambiance at Keefer's are terrific. This restaurant is ideal for everything from a power lunch to a casual get-together. I take clients out downtown very regularly and what sets Keefer's FAR ABOVE the competition is their warm welcome, desire to please and attention to detail. For a big restaurant with hundreds of people coming and going all the time, the staff makes a point of warmly greeting and saying goodbye to each party.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMKeefer's was wonderful.

(myself, wife, 14 year old and 12 year old) We tried items from all sections of the menu and enjoyed everything we ate. Service was excellent and I would highly recommend Keefer`s to anyone in the city.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined early as we wereWe dined early as we were going to the theater. When we arrived the room where we were seated was empty, yet we were given the table closest to the wait station clearly the least desirable table in the room. The maitre de spent several moments picking this table and could have chosen many better, as the room was only half full by the time we finished dining. We started with a beet salad which was very flavorful and ordered steaks which were prepared to our order, good but nothing exceptional. The whipped potatoes were quite "soupy" and thin, not whipped. Creamed spinach was excellent. The best part of our experience was our waiter. He was very pleasant, helpful with our questions, checked on us, but was not intrusive.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBelcher & Bradford mens day dinnerGreat service the waitress was very attentive to our needs. One very appreciated act of customer first was the chef took the time to prepare a special Oyster Rockefeller dish for me that wasn't on the menu. We are starting a tradition of mens day in our family, everyone agreed that Keefers was a great pick to start it off. We will be back!!!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night at Keefer'sFood was excellent and all aspects of the experience was memorable.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful night withHad a wonderful night with high school friends!

I Ordered a Draft beer My girlfriend had red zin. We wer ther for the steaks so we skipped the appetizers. I ordered the porterhouse Medium rare cooked perfectly hot pink edges with a warm red center. I elected the blue cheese crust, very rich, it was good unfortunately it wasnt what my stomach was calling for so i found myself scraping some of it off. My Girlfriend had thefilet ordered medium a nd also cooked perfectly ala Dianne with a smooth redwine and mushrrom sauce.
