    As business visitors we were looking for a Chicago steakhouse. Some of the best are a cab-ride away. So we settled on Michael Jordan's as it was in the main drag. Excellent decision! The steak was perfect and very flavoursome. The accompaniments were 'creations'. Despite my aversion created by boiled Brussel-sprouts served up at school, I part-took in the glazed ones at Michael Jordan's and was pleasantly surprised. Kenny (I think) our host was just that - a host! One thing America has to improve upon and get rid of (not just at Michael Jordan's) is this practice of not being seated until all the dining party have arrived. Annoying!

    I've lived in Chicago my whole life and have known about Michael Jordan's Steakhouse for years but never went well I will definitely be going back. Celebrated my anniversary here and it was perfect for the occasion. Beautiful dining space, Amazing wine list, Knowledgeable staff and most importantly amazing food. You must try the Garlic bread if you have no other appetizer. It is this amazing bread that they then add a blue cheese fondue on top of..Incredible!!! The Steak was tender and juicy and the sides were great as well. The 23 layer Chocolate cake for desert is a must (if you like decadence). It was an awesome experience and one I will have again in the future.

    The food was amazing. Everything from the appetizers, we got the garlic bread and the bacon appetizers, to the fantastic steaks, to the delicious dessert met and exceeded our expectations. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable and even steered us away from some items based on our preferences. He never pushed us into anything, but helped craft the meal that best fit each individual. A terrific experience and will have to go back the next time the opportunity arises.

    First time there. Was expecting a bigger wow factor walking in to a Gold Coast resturant. Took my supervisor for Bosses Day. The table wobbled which was a total turn off to begin with. We made jokes about that as we were cutting our petite fillets. I ordered creamed spinach as my side and additionally order the asparagus which my waiter forgot all about and did not bring out until we were served and I had to remind him about several minutes later. The day before a hostess called to confirm my reservation at which time I mentioned that we really only had a 45 minute time limit for lunch and she assured me that she would make a note and my server would be aware of. Server had no idea and we ran over on time.

    The food was excellent and our server was great. The ambiance was too loud abd not romantic enough for our first anniversary dinner and that was due to the fact that someone bought out the dining room that night so we were stuck in the bar area. Very nice place aside from the change in our reservation.

    First of all, this is a steak joint, so you know what to expect. Let me say that the steak, a dry aged porterhouse, was excellent. Beyond that, the service was impeccable. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and offered some great recommendations for wine and sides.

    Nothing special - seems more of a tourist trap - located right on Michigan Ave - very appealing to the masses going by and seeing the MJ name. If you are looking for a steak - there are other much better options in Chicago and the ambience in nothing memorable.

    I've been to Morgans and fogo de chao for my girlfriend birthday. They both gave a small cake or ice cream with happy birthday on it. For a bill over 220 buck that is the least that you guys can do when someone is spending that much. It's not much but the small thing that count that gives you guys repeated customers. Look into that thanks

    garlic bread is a must-try here, with blue cheese fondue! for men, i think MJ's delmonico is enough because of 16oz. for women, i think petite filet mignon and natural new york strip are good choices. (w. smash potatoes! it's amazing! so delicious) for dessert, 23 layer chocolate cake is classic. you guys must invite manager to show you how to share it. :)

    This was our second visit to Michael Jordans Steak House. We were so impressed on our first visit that we extended our visit from Canada to celebrate my wife's birthday here. The service was excellent. We had a reservation for 7 pm on a very busy Saturday and only had to wait a few minutes for a table to be ready. Our server was very knowledgable of the menu and extremely friendly. The Maitre De checked on us but was not intrusive. Delmonico ribeye cooked medium was perfection. Garlic bread with blue cheese dressing and crab cake were excellent although the crab cake was slightly over priced. The only disappointment was the well done NY striploin my wife had been looking forward to was charred and not nearly as good as our previous visit

    The food was delicious and the service very good. My husband and I both appreciated the tip that the cesar salad was very large and shareable, so instead of us each ordering our own appetizers and having too much, we shared the salad and it was just right. Even better, they separated it into two separate bowls in the kitchen for us, instead of leaving us to dish it out ourselves (which can be messy). The colossal crab cake (which was also big enough to share) was probably the best we've ever had! All meat, no filler. MJ's Delmonico was also large enough to share (and awesome!), and the mashed potato trio was to die for (especially the goat cheese one!).

    The Seafood Platter & Neuskes bacon were amazing! JC's service was the best during our visit to Chicago. The Porterhouse for two was below expectations the rest of the experience overshadowed that let down. The reason for the "scenic view" , was for the building interior & JC's suggestion to view the original Tarzans swimming pool on the 14th floor.

    It is definitely worth checking out this restaurant for the fair prices on quality food. Portions are generous so consider sharing if you are not big eaters especially with sides and salads. The 23 layer Chocolate cake was overhyped. I think we caught our server on a bad night because he was inattentive, slow and yet rushed us to get our orders when he was there. Give it a try for the food. Hopefully you will have better service.

    Great food, good location. Sides are big enough for 2+ people. Wished the server had told us that instead of letting us order too much. Minor complaint, table was wobbly and the flatware wasn't polished. It should be for a dinner at this price. Major complaint, hostess informed us of business casual dress code when we confirmed out reservations. She was very specific about telling us, to the point of being stuck up. We were from out of country so I went and bought dress pants that I didn't have with me, in place of dark jeans. Surprise, surprise when we got there most people were in jeans, tee shirts and hoodies. One woman had jeans with holes in them and the hostess didn't even meet dress code. She had leggings on. Not pleased at all.

    Food4Thought
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    Chicago is known for great restaurants, especially steakhouses. MJ's is not one of them. I should have known when I was able to get a table for 3 on a Friday night only an hour before arrival and then found place largely empty. The steak was so highly salted, I couldn't finish it, and I always finish my steak. The Mac and cheese, creamed spinach was bland. The sides were so uninteresting that I would have thought they came from a school lunchroom. The bacon appetizer was intense and tasty. I would recommend getting one order for the table and slicing it up to put on the otherwise boring salads. There was a limited dessert menu. No scotch or vodka listing. To top it off, of course, it was extremely expensive. I would not recommend.
