Michael Jordan's Steak House
DessertMy husband and I had a wonderful time!! The dinner menu was great, however the dessert menu could have had a much broader selection. Staff was awesome in directing us on what was best suitable to eat. We will be back!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA little pricey but great food!We had steak and salmon and both were excellent! We also ordered a side salad and dessert. The 23 layer chocolate cake really does have 23 layers! Food was outstanding, just had to take a deep breath when the bill came. Definitely worth it for special occasions but won't be a regular spot for us.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining Experience!!!Michael Jordan's is a top notch restaurant with outstanding food and service.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMJosh who is the assistantJosh who is the assistant GM and my waiter was great . we enjoyed our dinner very much. Food was excellent!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousMy first time dining here and I think the food was delicious. I would recommend you to try it at least one time in your life if you are ever near the restaurant.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfully accommodatingWe were in town for a "girls weekend". It was myself, my mother, and my 2 1/2 year old daughter. We were staying next door and wanted a nice meal. I was very worried when I found out there was no child's menu, however the staff was amazing in accommodating my finicky little gal, they made her a grilled cheese sandwich, brought her some fresh fruit, some milk, & a basket of bread. She also loved the hand-cut fries. I have honestly not seen her eat so much in quite a while. I was so proud of her for being so well behaved, as were the patrons around us who complimented her. Every single person on staff that we had an encounter with was amazing, top notch indeed and we have been to many upscale restaurants around the country.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBar BurgerAte in the bar so we could have the burger MJ Steakhouse is known for. It was great, as was the garlic bread. Drinks were great - and not all of the bar menu was too pricey for those that don't want to spend a fortune!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing steak (& garlic bread)We went for our 25th anniversary & had an amazing meal. Our server Ben was great. Attentive, friendly & knowledgable. We had the garlic ciabatta with bleu cheese sauce following other reviews & it really is delicious! (1/2 portion on Ben's advice as we wanted to try 3 sides!) Followed with a bone in fillet that was as tall as 4 fingers high, but slid off the knife like butter. Fries, mac n cheese & asparagus on the side were all fab. Despite being full we shared the 23 layer chocolate cake just to see it (we took 3/4 home back to the hotel).
The only thing that could have made this meal better would have been catching a glimpse of Micheal himself (who apparently does drop in a few times a month)
Definitely go!!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCEI HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE BEST STEAK IVE TRIED SO FAR6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAn opulent mealI was in town for a conference together with two colleagues and we were in the mood for a good steak so we headed to Michael Jordan's. From the moment we arrived were made to feel like royalty. Our server was knowledgaeable and attentive without being overbearing, He really made us feel special, The food was terriffic, with large portions and decadent sides (lobster mashed potatoes, anyone?). It's expensive but you get a lot for the price. Their drinks were also amazing.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bar was crowded -

Got seated on time - the waiter was great and the food was good. The portions were good. Better than a fair value. It was a little noisy.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak I've ever tasted!!This place was awesome. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was legit. The location is right on Michigan Ave. If you are in Chicago the place is a must. Very classy and wine was top notch. Good place to dine if you are in the Chicago area!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family had a wonderfulOur family had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. We went for my son's 11th birthday while we were visiting the city. Our waiter took great care of us, including offering kid-friendly items not on the menu. Everything we ordered was amazing and, to top it off, our waiter brought out a 23-layer chocolate cake for my son...with a lit candle on top. We'll never forget his birthday dinner there and would love to go back next time we're in Chicago.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMValet parking was efficient.Valet parking was efficient. We were served promptly. Our server was thorough but not sufficating. She was very knowledgeable of the menu. Our food came promptly and was delicious.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThis was one of the best places we ate at in Chicago. The steak was superb, fries were addictive, and 23 layer choc cake was amazing! A great place! We went back twice during our trip!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely AnniversaryMy husband and I went to Michael Jordan's steakhouse for our 2nd wedding anniversary and were quite pleased. The service was great. Our waiter was knowledgeable and gave us the details without it feeling snooty. Prices were typical of any steakhouse and the portions were quite generous. We both took half our entrees home after enjoying an appetizer and saving room for the 23 layer cake we'd heard so much about. Next time, I would skip the cake and try some of their other appetizers. One of the really great things we discovered was valet. It was a super affordable option as they validate it at the restaurant so it's only $11 to park. I'd be hard pressed to find a lot cheaper than $20 in that area.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious foodDelicious Food, and knowledgeable staff. Our waiter was spot on with his recommendations5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat nightIf you are looking for a great steak then this is the place to go! The sides were also very good. It also helped that I am a huge MJ fan!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery excellent place. TheVery excellent place. The Delmonico Steak was fantastic.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMYou might taste...The food and ambience a very good. The special is the garlic bread... Just awesome taste, unique.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBurger Ballyhoo!Believe me when I say the hamburger was on of the best I've ever had, what ever the breakdown is of the Chuck, Briskit, and Short Rib mixture, the Chef has is going! No need for condiments on this burger, the taste is fabulous!
TR5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMJ wins againThis was my first time dining at Michael Jordan's. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The meal was great and the wine wonderful. We will be back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a surprise!We were in Chicago on business and I wanted to find a place close to our hotel for a nice dinner with colleagues. I was hesitant to choose a celebrity restaurant, and was very pleasantly surprised at every turn. The hostesses were very accommodating for the wheelchair user in our party and couldn't have been nicer or more considerate. The restaurant itself is beautiful, but our server was the best part. I wish that I knew his name. Suffice it to say he is a heavy set Italian man with glasses and a serious passion for food and service. We had an amazing meal, in no small part due to our server.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcelent Food and ServiceThe seafood and the steaks are great! Very good service5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent.The service was excellent. However I dined with a friend who had never been. Her steak was medium rare and not to her liking. The manager came to apologize but did not offer anything else.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectIncredible dinner at MJ's! A very nice bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Champagne was our drink to wake our appetite and to guard us through the excellent food. The double smoked bacon is standing out of the starters but the carpaccio was also great. Mains included halibut, salmon and lamb chops with the house special fries - no regrets! Fantastic food, excellent service, beautiful seating. The building is also something special and the interior of the restaurant is eye catching too....5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEat and people watchOn a sunny Chicago day this is a great place to sit enjoy lunch and people watch.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAn exceptional bone-in filetAn exceptional bone-in filet along with bacon potatoes and a bottle of Malbec made for a terrific meal, but the iceberg wedge salad was a disappointment, with tough lettuce and a blah Ranch-like "blue cheese" dressing, and although there were just two of us, we were cramped at a very small window-side table in a half-full Tuesday night restaurant. I'd also like to see some more crab and lobster options. What sets a steak house like Gibson's apart -- and above -- is coupling a great steak with a mammoth lobster tail.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningThe service was stellar. It was my fiance's birthday and our server, JC, went above and beyond. The steak was absolutely delicious, we got the porterhouse for two (filet mignon and NY strip); I don't remember enjoying steak that much in a long time. The sides, french fries with three dipping sauces, and carmelized onions, complimented so well. Lastly, the 23 layer chocolate cake is just so cool you have to get it. The restaurant is beautiful, but we did wish there were more memorabilia from Jordan. Would add to the experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff provided greatThe wait staff provided great service and I highly recommend the MJ's Prime Delmonico steak and the Colossal Crab Cake.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBEst Filet Ever!!!One of the best filet's I have ever had...and coming from Los Angeles and the # of restaurants there is saying alot!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fillet was really reallyThe fillet was really really good. The delmonico was good, but if you like fillets, it's not even a comparison.
I was skeptical about the garlic bread, because come on, how can it be That good? But it was. It was baked squares topped with a light cheese sauce. Definitely follow the recommendations for this one.
Also, I had the onion soup. Usually people fail to make the broth well, but theirs had a lot of rich flavor. I was actually impressed.
That's all I had. I would like to try again sometime though.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service waitressexcellent service waitress was very knowledgeable about wine selections. Manager was friendly and interacting with guest made visit very pleasing.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak, great apps, greatGreat steak, great apps, great salads, and great brussels sprouts! Yes this restaurant is on the tourist section of Michigan Avenue but it was way above ant tourist restaurant. I had one of the best filets that i have ever had. In fact I was getting full but still finished the steak. And our server, Kate, was amazing. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and woth every penny. I look forward to returning again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best steaks ever.One of the best steaks ever. Innovative,creative menu for food and drinks.Outstanding service.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Excellence!Loved the restaurant. This evening was special as it was our 11 year anniversary and the other restaurants we'd chosed for the past 10 did not hold a candle to Michael Jordan's. What a gem!!! I want to give special thanks to our server Jessica, who left us alone just enough and made her presence felt just enough...with her capable friendly attitude to make this an unforgettable evening. Can't say enough good things about the ambience, the service and last but most importantly...the FOOD!!! Delicious! Excellent, excellent, excellent excellence!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways know we will not beAlways know we will not be disappointed with the food, service, drinks or atmosphere.
It was easy to get a reservation when we wanted it, not always like that.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne Of The Best Of Not TheOne Of The Best Of Not The Best Restaurant I've Ever Been To. Wish I Could Go More Often4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious steaks, great service.Delicious steaks, great service. Horrible Maitre d. Lose the guy at your front door... he sets the tone... which we had to overcome to eventually enjoy our meal.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great ChoiceIn our party, there were two adults and a toddler. I wondered how our nearly three year old would enjoy her experience. My daughter did not have a separate entree but was able to enjoy the meal. Prior to choosing MJ's Steakhouse, I read select reviews and the dining experience seemed contingent on your server; contrary to what was read, our needs were met by more than one person i.e., recommendations were made, our glasses were filled, and our daughter was given stickers, and a coloring sheet.
Since becoming a mom, I notice where we are seated in restaurants; this was refreshingly different. Patrons and staff took the time to compliment our daughter. Although she was indifferent, as parents this complimented a great experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHospitality, we received theHospitality, we received the best service ever. We enjoyed it almost as much as the food. Keep up the great service!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak house in Chicago?Several friends had recommended MJ's - so I finally tried it. In a city full of good steak houses, this may be the best. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive; in fact the service was superb. I ordered the Delmonico - a house specialty. It was perhaps best steak I have eaten in 10 or 15 years. The sides and appetizers were outstanding. Companion ordered fish and chicken and the reviews were all first rate. I strongly suggest you give this place a try, you will not be disappointed.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI went for a birthday celebration.I went for a birthday celebration. Everything was great- our waiter was outstanding, attentive and on his job! The best filet I have had to date. Nice booth seating overlooking Michigan Ave. What an echanting evening. There are great staircases and decor for picture taking. Love, love, loved it!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerI took my daughter there for a special birthday dinner (her 21st birthday). It was our first time at a steakhouse in Chicago.our original reservation time was 6:30 pm, but we called and changed it to 7:30 with no problem. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining all the dishes. We had the filet mignon, it was so good and tender you could cut it with your fork. The appetizers were amazing also, we had their garlic bread and their bacon, both were outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI definitely have to recommendI definitely have to recommend the garlic bread! I wasn't going to get an appetizer and had started to regret that I'd ordered one, but once I had that first bite my mind changed right away. If they could make bread taste that good, I was even more excited to try the steak. It might have been one of the best steaks that I've ever had. Unfortunately, my eyes were bigger than my stomach and I decided that I had to get the 23 layer chocolate cake. I mean, everything had been amazing how could you go wrong with the signature dessert? This really was the one part of my meal that just wasn't exceptional. Don't get me wrong, it's good but when compared to everything else that I had that night, it just wasn't on the same level.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak i've ever had,Best steak i've ever had, hands down. Great service, wine was excellent. Would recommend. Cant wait to go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMJ Steakhouse ChicagoThe appetizers were amazing! The crab cakes are not stacked with breading - they're stuffed with crab! Excellent! The appetizers and the sides (3 types of mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts) were the best part. My main dish (sea scallops) were not well prepared but my daughter's Fillet Mignon was perfect. The waitress was great - very nice, knowledgeable, personable and we really liked her!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA SurpriseWe went here because its across from the Conrad...didn't know if this was going to be touristy and overpriced. It was not! It does not cater to young kids, but they made accomodations for us. We had a great bone marrow plate and a triple mashed potato side dish that were awesome. Only downside was the chocolate cake. We would come back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the bone in filet andI had the bone in filet and it was the best steak I have ever had. The potatoes in duck fat was absolutely delicious, only thought it had too many onions and not enough potatoes. The service was unbelievable. We had four waiters attending to us and they were excellent. I would definitely return and recommend to anyone. It was expensive but the food and service was great.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDestination Steak HouseMJ's remains one of the premier steakhouses in a town full of them. The steaks, of course, are outstanding, but it is the sides that really distinguish the menu. The garlic bread with buttermilk-blue cheese sauce is a must. Instead of sautéed spinach, try the mixed greens. The fries come spiced with 3 dipping sauces on the side. Really great variety and - most important - flavors.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
