    I had only one problem at weber grill and that was unfortunately how my filet was prepared. Both my wife and I ordered the filet mignon medium hers was done right and was perfect, mine unfortunately was overlooked. Both the the server and a manager who brought back my steak were very apologetic and the new steak was fantastic.

    Weber Grill is an amazing restaurant with great food and great service. After my first experience at Weber, I wanted to have every meal at the Weber Grill. Megan, the waitress who served us during our first visit, was absolutely phenomenal! She was so knowledgable of the menu, excited to serve us and very energetic. She provided us with all the information we needed to make perfect selections. I ordered a hamburger, and it was the best hamburger I've ever had. The next day I ordered the same hamburger. It was amazing! The charcoal grilling adds wonderful flavor to the food which places this restaurant above others in that respect. When I return to Chicago, the Weber grill is going to be the first stop!

    Food and waiter great, but experience seriously damaged: I gave my name when I sat down, told my partner's name and said she had never been there before. When she arrived, she was told I had not checked in yet. The error seriously cut into our time for lunch. Sad, because she is a cancer patient that was in-between doctor's appointments, so we only had a limited interval as it was. I don't see how you can lose track of patrons at 11:15 AM, when the place is mostly empty anyhow. What's the point of making the reservation in advance?

    we ordered two appetizers, the bruschetta and the lime shrimp and the portion size was just sad. There were four of us and the bruschetta was cut in three pieces and there were only four shrimp.My friend and I had steak which was good. My husband ordered ribs and meatloaf and it was awful. He couldn't get any meat of the four ribs that was served and the meatloaf was like a hamburger with bbq sauce on it. The portion of the ribs was pathetic. My other friend ordered the ribs and brisket. Her ribs were the same as my husband and she was served chicken at first instead of brisket. That was corrected. For the prices, the portion sizes need to change. We paid alot of money for very little food with some of our meals.

    We wanted 8pm but were able to get a reservation for 8:15pm. The restaurant was so busy on arrival we had to fight through a crowd of people waiting for tables, just to get to the hostess desk, and then had a 15 minute standing wait to be seated. Once seated, after the usual introduction by our server and receiving bread and waters, I ordered a draft beer. I didn't receive my beer until 2 minutes before 9pm, 25 minutes after ordering, and 45 minutes from the reservation time. My girlfriend's drink arrived, so why does it take 25 minutes to pour a beer? The food itself was of the usual high standard, but I didn't much enjoy the evening, and the only explanation was that they were busy. Well, there will be 2 people less next time.

    even if I have reserved a table, we had to wait for 40 minutes to get the table. Moreover, in the reservation I have specified that we have 2 kids, but they don't take it into account and we had to wait standing in the entrance of the crowded restaurant. This restaurant has a frenzy atmosphere and it seems more like a grilled meat factory than a relaxing and enjoyable place. The food is good, but the waiting does not worth it. The waiter kept coming up to us saying "take your time" , but he seems to want us to hurry to finish dinner!

    We really enjoyed our time at the Weber grill. The atmosphere was true to the brand, our server was fantastic and the food was awesome. We loved the ribs so much we asked for the recipe (I'm an avid griller). Our server came back with the actual recipe! How awesome is that! On top of that the price was quite reasonable.

    We brought our group of four in and had to wait for 20 min past our reservation time. The lobby was so crowded on a Thursday night, that we had to wait on the sidewalk, while local bums asked us for money. The volume inside is near-deafening, so don't plan it for a romantic outing. However, they delivered on what they promise with outstanding steaks and sides. Our waitress was right on top of things. Good beer selection too!

    Maybe I've gotten older and come to appreciate finer cuisine but I have to say I could have done much better myself. My friend and I both had the New York Strip special. Although cooked properly it had little or no seasoning. The side of broccoli was undercooked. The waiter was not knowable and a bit abrupt. I will not be going back.

    I had the combo of the sausage, chicken and ribs - hard to go wrong with that, and it was delicious. Service was good. It was a quiet time of day, so not many people there to create any real ambience. I was given a booth alongside the kitchen which was fine, but I would have liked the option to sit elsewhere (even outside)

    I got there a few minutes early and after a little confusion at the hostess station (maybe name spelling?) they found my reservation. While I waited I watched the chefs prepare the dinners in the kettles inside, that was great. I was given an outside table at the time I had reserved. The beer selection was good and I enjoyed both my pre-dinner and dinner beer. I had a perfectly cooked steak, my friends enjoyed their meals as well. I have been using a weber grill since childhood, I must say I am biased about the place but they did not let me down in any department. Awesome meal. Great service. Smiling people. Thanks, I have no constructive comments to render. Wish I could stay in Chicago longer. I would go back often.

    My husband and I stopped in for dinner during a visit to Chicago. The restaurant vibe was nice and I certainly enjoyed being in there. However, my chicken was quite bland and my grilled shrimp appetizer was over-cooked and though I was told that it was going to be made with "jumbo" shrimp, there were 4 medium-sized shrimp instead. My husband's ribs were good, though. Overall, I was definitely disappointed with the food, but I liked the vibe so I would probably try them out again. There was a pretty sizable crowd, so it's possible that my experience was not typical.

    I ordered the pork chops. A server in the past told me that they recommend cooking them medium to medium-rare (which I also recommend). One of the pork chops was cooked nearly well done, but it was still tender and juicy and still very good to me. I had no issues. The other one looked like it had barely been on the grill. The outside was crisp, but the entire inside was completely pink/purple-ish and you could not even chew it. I sent it back, and they brought me a new one cooked the exact same way. I sent that back as well. The waiter seemed annoyed, but took it back and had them cook it longer. This was the first time in my life I have ever sent food back (aside from when I have found hairs).

    2nd time coming. First time was around 2004. Visiting from out of town. Still great food. First time was my first time trying a beer can chicken. It made me sad because they showed me how I should be BBQing, but wasn't. This time, had the Southwestern brick chicken. Wife had the BBQ combo platter. My chicken was good. Here chicken and brisket were good. Ribs were a little dry. Huge s'mores with molten chocolate cake was fantastic. Given the size of the cake, you'd expect most of it to be cooked out, with less liquid. Not so. Fantastic. Service was friendly and good. Still on our to-recommend list.

    The concept of everything being grilled on Weber grills is fun; however the food isn't anything special. We had a burger, ribs and grilled, smoked sausages.. all of which were ok at best. We were sat at a booth right by the "food line" where they prepare the food and our entire time at the restaurant it was hot from the grills and very smoky. We didn't have a steak which would probably be good however there's many more places in Chicago to get a good steak.

    This was a great experience. Our servers was great. They had a special anniversary three course meal, which I had. It was $25 and you got a little quiz to take about the Weber Grill. Our server gave us great information. For getting the quiz answers correct the manager have me a $25 gift card which never expires. Win, win!

    I dined at Weber Grill on a Sunday evening with my parents. We were running late for our reservation & called to let the restaurant know. The host was very kind and we were seated immediately upon arrival, even though there was a wait. Our server, Shawn, knew the wine list & recommended a great bottle of champagne (Brut, Domaine Ste. Michelle, Columbia Valley, WA). My father, obsessed with BBQ, could not make up his mind on what to order. Shawn pointed out their BBQ combos (choose two $18.50, choose three add $6.50) & recommended the Black Angus Meatloaf for one choice, which my father loved! We received our food promptly even though the restaurant was full. Shawn was personable & very attentive to our needs. We will definitely be back!

    If you make Bar-B-Que grills for a living, then use them to cook the food you serve in your restaurant, you can't go wrong. We lived in the area four years but have since moved...but...when we are back in the area ALWAYS make this a dinner stop at least once. The food is simply awesome. And the chef will stop by your table for allergy consultation (gluten / dairy) and will make you what you need!! Yes!...we will be back.

    So much yummy stuff to pick from. I had the Filet and Mashed Potatoes....boring I know but I wanted to see if they grilled it as good as I would on my Weber Grill. They did! Could have had a little seasoning or steak sauce but that is just my preference. On a side note, my friend loved it so much she said to me, "Thanks for picking this restaurant!" That was wonderful to hear as I went on a colleague's recommendation about this place!
