    We were visiting from out of town and I had chosen this restaurant due to its proximity to our hotel and due to its menu. From the moment we arrived we were treated by all staff as if they were very happy to see us. The maitre d' was extremely welcoming and it just got better from there. We had drinks in the bar and then were seated upstairs at a table for two. Our waiter, John, was extremely helpful with the menu and definitely knew his wines. His recommendation was spot on for our meal. The fillet mignon was cooked exactly to our specifications and was so tender you could cut it with spoons. The vegetables were cooked properly and the use of spice was perfect. This is the definition of a high-class steakhouse!!

    You must try the bacon appetizer....out of this world!! This item alone was worth the visit (even my wife agreed). We both had the Filet and the Three-Mashed Potatoes (3 bowls each made a different way) and they were all great, but the goat cheese version of the potatoes was the best. I would say that this restaurant lives up to Jordan's reputation as one of the all-time greats!

    We had a wonderful dinner the waitress Alana was fantastic. If I had to acknowledge one down side it would have been the (5) guys next to us they were somewhat noisy. I can understand for them it seemed liked they were reuniting as old college buddies reliving the old times. My wife and I was looking for a more intimate quiet setting to reminisce on our past as well, wish that the restaurant had a setting for both. Overall thumbs up for MJ, I have always been a fan and he has always shown class as an athlete and person.

    For such a great name attached to the restaurant, I would have expected a great dining experience but unfortunately it didn't quite get there. There were way too many tables which made it over crowded. I could literally reach my hand out and touch the person at the table next to me. This took away the romantic feel for the restaurant. The food was ok, but not great considering the money you will spend per entree. Ditka's had better steaks and they were cheaper. MJ's had a limited menu and the few things I ordered were average. I just expected more for fine dining.

    Not trying to sound like a negative person. I never write reviews but felt compelled because I was so disappointed. I hope this will be used as constructive criticism. We are from Louisiana and I have always been a huge MJ fan. Knowing his competitive drive, I expected the restaurant to be "on top of its game!" Although I know the restaurant is going for a "upscale dining" look and not a sports bar look, I still expected to see more MJ memorabilia and championship feel. Service was slow and I expected white table cloths with waiters dressed in white. I think little things like better looking menus, white table cloths, more ambiance and better service would add to the experience. For us, it was just the name. Sorry, hope to try it again!

    We were in town to celebrate our son's 16th Birthday, and he chose Michael Jordan's Steakhouse (Being an avid basketball player). We were there with a group of 6 and had a fantastic meal. And our service was incredible. Claudia was amazing, funny, knowledgeable and made the experience even more enjoyable. We will be back. We loved it. The only thing that would have made it better is a tableside visit and autograph from MJ himself!

    My younger cousins (9 and 14) wanted to come here because they are big MJ fans. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. Service was friendly and efficient. Our waiter was extra gracious to the kids. We had steak, roast chicken, and crab salad. We chose the mashed potato trio and roasted asparagus for the sides. Everything was delicious.

    As a family of 4 and MJ fans, we were expecting great things from his restaurant. It is considered to be one of the finest steakhouses in Chgo, but doesn't deserve to be in the category with your Morton's, Ruth Chris' or even Ditka's of the world. Our meat entrees were very fatty (steak and pork chops), the sides weren't seasoned well - how can you mess up French fries. And the desserts were very limited. Not a good place for young children (no children's menu). Ours are 12 & 14 and found it difficult to find something they really liked. But the service was good. Seated promptly, even though we arrived early and our server was quick, efficient and knowledgeable. Ambience was also nice, but overall not enough to recommend to others.

    I took my guy here for the first time for his birthday, the restaurant is very nice. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu but was slow bringing our food. When he finally came to the table to bring us bread our food came out 2 minutes later. The steak and chicken was great but the sides could have been better. Compared to other top restaurants we go to m.j. need a whole new variety of side because everything was basically potatoes.When it came to cocktails it seem like everybody had the same drink because the waiters saying that's the best and popular. But the truth is out of 8 cocktails on the list 7 contain beer and I'm not a beer drinker. I wouldn't be returning but I let a friend try it out for themselves.

    I want to complain that the waitress Lana at Michael's was unattentive. She took forever to take a drinks order or introduce herself and it wasn't busy. Also they automatically assume 18% tipping and debited this unauthorised amount from my card when I specifically put a 15% tip and didn't even want to do that. It was my husbands birthday and no extra effort was put in. Most places when they are informed give you a free small dessert but we received nothing at all for this. I will be contacting my bank to have the amount changed as they were not authorised to debit that amount.

    When I think of Michael Jordan, I think if the Chicago Bulls memorabilia, posters dunking, championships etc. If not for the name Jordan, you wouldn't even know he owned it. Too much focus on high-end, not enough focus on nostalgia. The restaurant he had on LaSalle was 10 times better.

    I dined here with my boyfriend and we had the best time! Our server was excellent and the overall waitstaff was friendly and very willing to help each other. I had asked about some different wines and my server helped me choose the best one for me. The German Riesling by the glass was the best Riesling that I had ever had and went perfect with my dinner. And the IPA that the server recommended to my boyfriend went well with his steak as well. The only issue that I had with the food was that my fish was slightly over seasoned and I tasted a lot of salt in some areas, but it was still edible and delicious. The other issue I had that night was with the valet damaging my car, but they aren't a part of the restaurant, so I can't blame them

    Wonderful service, delicious dinner. Our anniversary dinner was topped off with happy anniversary written on our dessert plate! Sat by the window and people watched. Filet, soft shell crab and strip steak sensational. You need to request the garlic bread or bread basket. We didn't and that was a blessing, we had room for the scrumptious dinner.

    My partner and I went to Michael Jordan's for our eleventh, and final, night in Chicago. We had oysters and steak tartare for starters. As recommended by our waiter, my partner had the special filet that came with a soft-shell crab. I had the wild halibut with a side of creamed spinach. The food was superb. We were easily persuaded to have the 23 layer chocolate cake to share. What a disappointment! When the waiter returned he was dismayed that we hadn't eaten it all and scurried away to ask if it could be taken off the bill. He returned with the chef's explanation that it was meant to taste bitter and that it would remain on the bill. The pudding was only $14 but we left with a bitter taste in our mouths in more ways than one.

    We didn't exactly have the best time. We started off with our an issue with our reservation. Once we noticed we were going to wrong area, we mentioned it. They looked at it again, and said..."oh yeah, that is in the notes". They did do an alright job trying to accommodate us. But our experience was affected. We both ordered the Delmonico steak.... It came out with 75% fat! So we only were able to eat 1/4 of it. For the price you pay, the amount of edible food we actually received was disappointing and seemed very wasteful. However, what we did get to eat, was delicious! Cooked as requested and had good flavors. Our two sides, asparagus and mac & cheese, were delicious too! We would consider going again, however we won't rush back.

    I had the best steak at this restaurant that I have ever had. I come from Texas, so it was a nice treat. Our server, Claudia, was especially warming. She was fun, and innovative, quick, and quite friendly. The food was really great, but what made this meal outstanding was the service I was provided by Claudia. Servers like her need to be rewarded for their hard work!

    I would highly recommend MJ's! I am in Chicago for the restaurant show every year now for the last 35 years. I have eaten at the finest in Chicago. Many times. On Saturday night we had made a reservation at David Burke's Primehouse. Since it seems to now be rated as second best of Chicago, We were truly disappointed and I wasted a large amount of money for dinner for 8 people. MJ'S was a savior to me as I would have been very upset had I not had that "chicago" steak I dream of each year. I ordered the same cuyt of meat at MJ's as I did David Burkes. MJ's made them look like a sizzler steakhouse. Service was wonderful. The waiter really knew the menu and wine list. WAY TO GO MJ'S STEAKHOUSE! Hansen Graham President Graham Marquis Porcelain
