    The food was average, however the prices were extremely high. The average bottle of wine is close to $200. We are wine drinkers and settled on a bottle of Shiraz for $95. The menu is a la carte. Our bill for four people was almost $700. We will not return. The value for price paid was not was we expected

    The best steak I have ever had. It truly was like butter. The garlic bread was outstanding. My wedge salad was good, romaine was a nice change from the usual iceburg. Bacon on top was amazing. Will order that as an appetizer if I ever am lucky enough to go back. My husband did not care for the tater tots. His medium well skirt steak was cooked closer to medium but still good. The 23 layer chocolate cake we shared and still have had enough left for 3 more desserts, it is huge! My one complaint would be that they kept dripping water on our table while refilling the glasses. The water pitcher should be wrapped in a dry napkin before it is brought to the table.

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    We were greeted eagerly and headed to the bar for a few drinks, we were a few minutes early for our reservation. As soon as it hit 5, we were seated. Kevin was our server, he was very friendly, and definitely knowledgeable. He recommended a few items on the menu, and he was dead on with how amazing it all was. The what seemed to be manager checked on us frequently, which I enjoy. We were there celebrating my boyfriends birthday, and he received a small cake with a candle. No singing, thank goodness! Overall, we both had a wonderful experience and definitely plan on going again!

    We had great seats and the waiter was very gracious and very happy! My only dislike was the Fried Chicken Salad which was not good. I wasn't expecting two pieces of fried chicken a thigh and drum stick which I hate dark meat. It was hard and it to be cut off the bone. I was looking forward to pieces of white meat in bite size pieces throughout the salad. I wish the waiter had to told me what to expect especially whether I had choice between white or dark meat! The presentation of Torillita soup, beets, and crab was beautiful! I wouldn't recommend the chicken salad and dressing it didn't have any flavor.

    Had a wonderful experience from the time we sat down, to the end of dessert. Our server was delightful. Perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary. Was probably one of the best steaks we've had... and undoubtedly the best lobster tail I've had. Will definitely return upon our next visit to Chicago.

    I suggested this restaurant to a group of associates based on how it was ranked among Chicago's better steak houses. I'd already been to several of the others. However I wouldn't classify Michael Jordan's restaurant as one of the better steak houses in Chicago. Steaks were good, but sides were OK at best and the service paled in comparison to the other steak houses. Kind of over rated.

    While the food was very good, the ambiance was lacking a bit. I would have thought that a sports icon like Michael Jordan would have been better represented in the restaurant. They had a cool display of celebrity steak knives, but not much other memorabilia or decorations. Seems like MJ just moved his restaurant into an existing restaurant. The service was excellent.

    The rib eye was scorched black, and the inside color was good red. The fillet was good color and good taste. Our orders were both medium rare. As we relied on this steak house, we ate rib eye. But that was too burnt taste. We didn't believe that they served such charred object. Probably, they knew it.

    This was my second time at the restaurant. The restaurant was not busy the first time I went and I received very good service. This visit, however, was rather busy and I was not impressed with the service. We had to wait a long time in between servings and it was obvious that we were on a lunch break. Food was pretty good. I got the crab cake and mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes are amazing and I would definintely recommend them!

    I have eaten at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse numerous times. Saturday night was my son's 23rd birthday - his "Jordan" birthday, so we went to the Steakhouse. It could not have been more delicious. The bacon appetizer is the best anyone of us had every had. Double-smoked and sizzling in a beautiful light sauce. My son and his girlfriend had the Porterhouse for two which was a sight to behold! The rest of us had the filets or Delmonico. It was exquisite. The ending? The 23 layer chocolate cake. A perfect night for any "Jordan" (23rd) birthday.

    We were disappointed. The ambiance was nice and the layout was smart. The steak was great and the mac and cheese was boring. The service was just plain bad. We were not offered bread but everyone else around us had a basket of bread. when out bread was placed on the table we had to wait for steak knives, they were nice knives though.

    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.

    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.
