Chicago Cut Steakhouse redefines Chicago's steak-centric dining scene with signature USDA-certified prime beef, which is hand cut and dry aged on site. A variety of made-to-order cuts are joined by eight different fish options, shellfish, chops, an array of hearty side dishes and more on the extensive dinner menu. The restaurant also serves the city's best "power breakfast". Chicago Cut's expansive surroundings feature a lively bar area framed by dramatic wine display cases; vibrant red velvet banquettes and spacious dining tables; and sweeping views of the Chicago River. A sprawling outdoor patio lining the riverside attracts diners throughout the day and well into the evening. Special touches abound, such as the restaurant's global wine list, which is presented to the guest via an interactive iPad program.

Steaks were not good. My friend’s was way underdone, when he sent it back it was returned as a black lump of coal steak. Service was good, but the food was not.

Service was excellent. Food was a mixed bag....the crab cakes were excellent, the filet was perfectly cooked and very good, the Delmonico steak was below par. For a boneless rib eye I expect flavor and tenderness and was a miss on both tonight. The mushrooms were also very good and the fries were excellent. The server was very courteous and took some of my wine off for consideration and that was extremely well done. In summary I don’t need to go back.

From the moment you walk in. The staff was attentive. When we were seated our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Our drinks were always full and the entire staff made sure we were satisfied. The food was absolutely delicious. Our table sampled various dishes and were satisfied with all of them.

My family and I went to Chicago Cut for an early Sunday dinner to celebrate the February birthdays and wedding anniversary. Our server Matt was very nice to our multigenerational group and handled our group with easy. We will definitely come back for the amazing food and service.

The view of the river and the ” L” train was spectacular. A quintessential Chicago experience. The seating is a bit cramped but the view and food made up for that minor shortcoming.

I went there with my boyfriend to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was our first time there and the server Matt was great! We had the 8oz. and the Chicago cut bone-in which was delicious. For appetizers the truffle potatoes and asparagus were so good! We will definitely be coming back.

Excellent food and service. Our server did a great job explaining the dishes, did not rush us and even gave recommendations for the rest of our trip when he learned we were from out of town. Everyone we interacted with were friendly and helpful and did not give off the pretentiousness that you sometimes find at high end steakhouses.

Lobscargot and the bone in filet were favorites and we also enjoyed our sides of brussel sprouts and mac and cheese.

My only complaint was how close the two top tables were to each other, but aside from being close to other couples the table and seats were comfortable. I would definitely recommend Chicago Cut if you are looking for a steakhouse in the city. I’d love to go back in the summer and sit aside the river.

This restaurant was our favorite until Valentines Day. We were placed directly next to the waiter station and had waiters constantly placing orders while we were trying to have a nice dinner. My husband asked to be moved which we were but then got the bill and realized we were charged $30 more for the bottle of wine we ordered. I called the next day to discuss and have yet to be called by a manager. We will not be back. So disappointing. It’s very overpriced to begin with but to be ignored is unacceptable.

The food was good. The seating is tight. We were first seated right beside the kitchen and did ask to move. They were happy to accommodate us and moved us to another table. It was much better; however, we were so close to other tables on each side it was hard to block out heir conversations. I loved the dim lit room right on the river, but if you want privacy I’d go somewhere else.

The food was good. Service was excellent. Overall we enjoyed our evening here.

We went here for Valentines Day. Our server Tiffany was fantastic. Food was okay. Our steaks were pre-cooked and basically heated up and served to us. Same with the crab legs. We were rushed out which was also annoying. For the money we spent, it was certainly not worth it. Much better food at basically any other steakhouse. The only thing that saved it was the nice views of the river and our server. Other than that, I’d pass.

The menu options were very simple. I thought the food could’ve been better for the price. I got the chicken parmasiana and the serving was huge but the pasta didn’t have a lot of flavor.

Outstanding service. Especially matr’d.
Wine was excellent.

Very loud even at lunch.

Food was really the issue. Presentation was lacking on steak dish, tuna, steak Diana (mushrooms were thicker than steak). Other steak had no crust and was grey and unappetizing. Flavor was ok, not great. Brussels needed seasoning. Overall, it was overpriced.

I feel like the place has lost a step or two. Food is good. Beautiful room, the acoustics very loud, not great for a dinner conversation. Good experience but Chicago is full of independent high end steak houses now

I want to preface this review by saying I rarely rate restaurants for good or bad reasons, but this experience was one that caught me so off-guard that I feel compelled to share---I had just received a job offer and wanted to celebrate at a nice steakhouse. Chicago Cut was the name that constantly came up when asking for recommendations. We walked in and the entire restaurant was packed and LOUD. Definitely not an upscale vibe---more of a tourist vibe with insanely expensive prices. We asked for our steak rare and it came out cooked rare but lukewarm in temperature. We were literally 2 feet away from tables on all sides of us. Nothing about this experience screamed upscale except for the prices. Paid entirely too much for a lukewarm steak that was smothered in fat. Honestly think 40% of the steak was fat. From what I can tell this restaurant has majorly lost its way and is now just a tourist trap with $70 steaks.

Unbelievable cramped. Way too many tables right on top of each other. I got up to use the restroom and while I was gone the seated a six-top behind us and two people were squeezed into the spot where I was previously sitting with their backs literally touching half of our table. I had to change seats.
When we arrived a waiter handed us an old, crusty iPad and told us we should use it to find our wines and cocktails. The iPad was slow and annoying, and it was on the level of TGI Fridays as far as service goes. If I’m going to drop $$ on a bottle of wine, a sommelier or even a paper list seems appropriate.
The food was just OK, and very hard to enjoy because there was a server’s behind in our faces most of the meal do to the cramped space.
