Michael Jordan's Steak House
MJ 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 AMMJ Steakhouse ReviewPortion's should have been bigger for what we paid for. Food was delicious, but we felt like we had children's portion sizes. Would not recommend to anybody based on that!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 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 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 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 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 AMMichael Jordan's was the BESTMichael Jordan's was the BEST stop on our quick trip to Chicago! Filet was melt in your mouth perfect - service was outstanding. When I booked the reservation on line I mentioned we would be visiting for my (adult) daughters birthday celebration, that was the ONLY time I said anything about the birthday. When they brought us our cocktails, Lana made a point to ask my daughters name and wish her a happy birthday & upon bringing us the 23 layer chocolate cake for dessert they attached a candle to the plate and had her make a wish. It was very quaint and just perfect. We have been raving about it since & will be back the first chance we get. Thank you.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated my boyfriends 21stCelebrated my boyfriends 21st birthday and they were phenomenal! Our server surprised us at the end with two glasses of champagne and an amazing dessert! I recommend this place highly. Not to mention you could run into the great Michael Jordan sometimes!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and an excellentDelicious and an excellent friendly staff!! Had a great time!!!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThere are other high-end steakThere are other high-end steak houses in Chicago that are much better, i.e., Gibsons, Chicago Cut, David Burke, etc.
The steaks and accompaniments were satisfactory, but not outstanding. Service, however, was excellent.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best steaks I'veOne of the best steaks I've ever eaten! It was so tender you barely had to cut or chew. You can't pass up the garlic bread, either. If you're looking for a place for a special night out, this is it. It's on the expensive side (the steaks were $40-50) but it was worth it.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first experienceThis was my first experience at Micheal Jordans steakhouse and I very much enjoyed the crab cake and carmelized brussel sprouts.Im from Ohio and i will definately be back .Outstanding environment inside the restuarant,very romantic,and the waiter we had made us feel so welcomed.Best restuarant ive ever experienced.Thank You.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not appreciate not beingDid not appreciate not being able to order drink I wanted. Starters were odd and all was over priced compared to other places I have dined.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall the food was excellent.Overall the food was excellent. The manager of the restaurant was very polite and helpful and introduced himself to us. The waiter was the problem and lacked attention to our table. Not a good sign or representation of this steakhouse. This is the first time I had eaten at this restaurant and it met my expectations for food quality and atmosphere. Was only disappointed in the service from our waiter.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally Dined at MJ's RestaurantGet the Blue Cheese garlic bread and Nutella creme brulee. Those items highlighted the meal.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM1st experience at Jordans1st experience at Jordans was amazing. The service was great, we were treated very well and taken care of very properly.

Was a read disappointed in the temperature of my steak. Prefer food hot rather than room temperature. Otherwise great food as usual. Staff are very attentive.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience, great foodThe food was amazing and the service was also very good. We went during Chef's Week and the food was amazing, we got a great table, and our server was very helpful as well as a lot of fun. The prices were certainly high based on the number of steakhouses in the city; however, the Chef's week menu was very enjoyable.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delish!The food was very good and I overall liked the resautrants ambiance.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMJaime was a wonderful waitress!Jaime was a wonderful waitress! She had a great sense of humor and was always on top of anything we needed.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful Dining ExperienceThis was a wonderful dining experience in a beautiful restaurant. We started off with the garlic bread & blue cheese fondue which was delicious. The carrot ginger bisque with crab was so flavorful, the carpaccio was good, but the portion size was rather small, the filet mignon with mushrooms was seasoned nicely & cooked to perfection. The desserts were all scrumptious. There were great beer & wine choices on the menu. The service was great.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we had was excellent.Everything we had was excellent. We eat at many fine restaurants and all of us found the food outstanding.

Atmospher was great place and I must say I was kind scared to try what was on meanu but it turn pretty good.
I wish we would know that you do have parking for $11 instead we pay $34 across the street3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENT !!!!!!Excellent all around. The food was good and portioned just right. Kudus to the service, impeccable.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit pricey but overall theA bit pricey but overall the food was outstanding. Thankfully the blue cheese did not overpower the flavorful bread like I assumed. The bacon strips were awesome and brussel sprouts were the best I ever had. I decided to go French and order french fries with my juicy tender ribeye but the fries reminded me of over-cooked fries from Checkers fast food joints lol. The dipping sauces were delicious too.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI Was staying at the HotelI Was staying at the Hotel Intercontinental with my wife and 2 young children 6&7. We decided we did not want to brave the cold and the hassle of getting a cab on St Pat parade day, so we thought we would give MJs steakhouse a try. Admittedly I was a little skeptical, I work in the city and have had the opportunity to eat at almost all the top ranked steakhouses in Chicago and had never even considered here before. We ended up having a great dinner. The steak was right up there with the other top steakhouses, along with a good and reasonably priced wine list (for Chicago at least). Finally the service was great and they were very accommodating to our kids. We would definitely recommend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were pleasantly surprisedWe were pleasantly surprised at the superior quality of every dish we ordered. We highly recommend this restaurant!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGot to sit in MJ's privateGot to sit in MJ's private booth. Awesome service!!!! FOOD WAS FANTASTIC. Trying to figure out why not in the top 10 in Chicago.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerWe really enjoyed this steak house. We arrived for our reservation and they took us immediately. The waiter was incredible. There was four of us so instead of getting 4 individual steaks we shared the porter house and the rib eye. The presentation made us the envy of the room. They bring them out on butcher blocks. They where perfectly cooked. The managers where so friendly taking time to chat with us. They spent lots of time with us recommending other local restaurants for our vacation. I have a disability the hostess went out of her way to hold a taxi for us. We are from Boston and we thought this restaurant was just as good if not better than our favorite steak hose Flemmings. The wine selection is great you can't go wrong here.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNot another hotel restaurant!I was truly shocked that the restaurant was so beautiful! I thought it would just be another hotel restaurant, but to find that we were sitting on the second floor and the bridge to walk over to the restaurant really set it apart from everything. I didn't notice that we were in the hotel until we had to pay for Valet. Valet service to retrieve is down stairs in the basement of the hotel. Other than that had a Marvelous "Girlfriends" outing and we all vowed to do it again next month at the same restaurant!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMmichael jordan's steakhousemichael jordan's steakhouse was great, food ,service everything was very nice , will go back again.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
