    My first time at Stetson's. I am a big fan of Gibsons but this was even better. I had a New York Strip that was cooked to perfection. Great service. Pricey as expected, but well worth it.

    Was nice but would have liked a bit more sophistication with menus. I prefer to get the chefs intent with dishes and you don't get that with a la carte menus. The staff was great and very attentive. Food was well seasoned and cooked to perfection.

  • Good but not Great

    This was a nice, upscale steak house that actually had really good sushi. The sushi might be the best part and I could see myself coming back just for the sushi bar. The steak was good, but not great. The sides were also good but not great. At these prices, I expect great. The worst part of the experience was the service: it was polite but very slow. I don't know if it was just our waiter, but there were a lot of tables that just had no food on them. We waited a long time for our drinks then a long time for our appetizers. We weren't in a hurry, but we were hungry. They need to get things out faster.

    The food, prices and ambiance were fine. Nothing stands out in the crowd of restaurants available in Chicago. As far as the a gem within a hotel, this also does not stand out but is fine. The chef's special sushi was the most boring collection pieces. Not to put the place down, there simply was nothing outstanding. The service was less than par, aside from the sommelier.

    Made a last minute reservation. So very few options. The food was very average and the steak was very bland. It was served on a black plate...horrible and not appetizing to look at on this plate. Service also very poor. We saw our server set up a table next to us and he dropped a knife on the ground he then picked it up and put it on the table. Unfortunately we are not into making a scene and telling the manager.....but for the amount of money that we payed we probably should have. one last complaint nail in the coffin...expensive to park. charged us 45 for 2 hrs and restaurant only gives 10 dollar discount. If the they want to attract customers in the city this discount should be 50 % at least. Will never recommend this place.

    Expensive but great place to eat! Although we went as a family, I categorize this restaurant as a place for a special date night. Most of the side dishes can be shared. The service alone will make you want to come back. Everyone was really nice and courteous. It was our first time at the restaurant but definitely know we will come back again.

    Four of us dined , two having FLat Iron Steak. Ordered medium and medium rare. unfortunately they continued to cook to well done on the sizzling platter they were served on. We did receive two complimentary desserts that were yummy. The Sushi roll I had was to fishy tasting, but the tuna was excellent. I thought my Rib eye steak was over priced for the amount of fat and grizzle in it. On a good note, I had the best Cosmo ever.

    The Chilean Sea Bass melted in my mouth. Fantastic food all around! Anthony was not our server, but kept coming by to check on us, as they were not that busy. He was so friendly! I would ask for him next time I go, which hopefully will be soon.

    About two thirds of the restaurant is next to a busy open kitchen - why in theory should make a nice atmosphere. However the kitchen extractor fans are so loud (we were on the opposite side) that it was all that could be heard. It's a shame as the food was pretty good and we had lovely service.

    I treated myself to dinner at Stetson's the last night I was in Chicago for a conference. The food was delicious, though one thing that I though was odd was that you couldn't order oysters by variety - they served generic "Atlantic" oysters. A shame, really, because there is a huge difference in how different oysters tastes. The ones served were good, if a little generic tasting. The 312 combo was excellent!

    I am a bit disappointed in Stetson's. While looking at their menu online, they supposedly serve prime beef. However, when we arrived at the restaurant and got our menus, there was nothing about "prime" on their menus and their steaks were more expensive than the online menu stated. When we got our steaks, they were not prime, yet we paid a price comparative to a prime steak elsewhere in the city. I had the filet, which was pretty good. My husband had the ribeye and as he put it, he could have gotten it at ponderosa. It's unfortunate because we really liked the vibe in there...much different than a typical Chicago steakhouse. Our server was very nice as well. We won't be back though because of the food.

    Stetsons is not your typical Chicago steakhouse. It's not the manly dark wood but a beautiful, sleek steakhouse with a beautiful sushi bar. It is small and intimate with great food and very good service.

    We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Stetson's! Anthony was the best server, he was so genuine and was very accomodating to make our dining experience special. He was always around when needed and let us enjoy our experience otherwise. The food is incredible, probably the best steaks that we have had, and we have had several great dining experiences around the world. Very tasty drink - strawberry and vodka, yum. All of the staff were very friendly and the food cooked to perfection. We even took our leftover steak and gave it to a homeless person on our evening stroll. Thank you to all!

    After having a bad steak at the last steakhouse I dined at (Mastros) I was pleased with Stetsons. The ribeye was amazing. So were the whipped potatoes, cocktails, and service. I would def. return. I like the open kitchen concept and being able to see the chefs cooking. Wait staff was great, very attentive and friendly

    I had the ribeye, medium rare, and it was very good, but quite rare. It was a wonderful blend of flavor and tenderness, that makes for an outstanding steak, and so being slightly undercooked was not a detraction at all. However, my girlfriend had the 12 oz. filet mignon, also ordered medium rare, but it was quite severely undercooked. Most of the meat was still raw, and not edible. However, the mussel pot appetizer, tuna tartar, and the roasted asparagus were all outstanding.

    It was awkward the wine/beer list was on an iPad. I much prefer the tradition book of listings. It took more time going back and forth between the different selections. Much easier to flip a page. When our waiter approached our table, there was no Hello my name is..., Tonight's special is..., Have you dined with us before? Only "Yes Please" with a pad of paper in his hand. We were taken aback by this and were like, oh okay - I guess we'll order. When he approached our table again to take our entrée order - I specifically asked for his name. It was at that time he perked up and became more friendly. Our food tasted good, not a very long wait time. However, bit overpriced. We dine at Shaw's, Gibson's etc

    A group of us were in town for business and often eating in the hotel is deadly. Not so in this case. I am writing this review several weeks after we ate there, but I can say that to the person we were extremely pleased with the foods and service. Will definitely plan on eating these next time this same group gathers, which does occur at least annually. A great place to eat.
