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.

We had a delicious lunch on the patio which has nice views of river and all activities. I would suggest adding appetizers on the menu as none were on ours and it would have been nice to have all the options. Steak was perfectly seasoned

Our service was not what you expect at Chicgao Cut. We sat almost 20 minutes after we ordered our drinks before the server came back and even then he was missing a coffee. I asked for a coffee 2 more times before I got one. My husband ordered steak and eggs and asked if potato came with it. The server said no so my husband ordered a side of potatoes and sure enough the steak came with potatoes. We asked another server that passed by our table to have a manager remove the side order. When my coffee was served it was spilled on my silverware. The server apologized but didn't bring new silverware. We wanted to order more drinks after finishing our first and asked for a drink menu. The server dropped it and then didn't come back for 5 minutes knowing we wanted to order more drinks. It wasn't busy. When brunch is $131 I expect better service.

Beautiful atmosphere, great evening dinner date. Train was somewhat annoying at times being so loud, but great service. Male host was perfection!
Table was a 6 seater, which was odd for 2 people however didn’t mind the extra space too much.
Food came out extremely fast almost too fast, I wondered was this cooked before hand and they microwave it😩😩... steaks especially filets takes longer to cook due to thickness. They butterflied it for me but it wasn’t the best filet I ever had. The delmonico was delicious. Waterside is awesome. Will come back

We chose this restaurant on a visit to Chicago from South Carolina for a business conference. Our entire experience was amazing. From the moment we walked in the door, we were greeted with kindness and courtesy. The view is amazing from anywhere in the dining room. Our waiter was nice and personable and very knowledgeable about the drinks and dinner menu. The burger was the best and the blackened scallops were incredible. If we make it back to Chicago, we’ll definitely have to visit here again.

My son and I come to Chicago Cut each year on our trip into the city and thoroughly enjoy it. This year, my son’s steak was extremely salty so he didn’t care to finish it. Mine, on the other hand, was still very good.

The bone in filet was amazing. Our server was very odd though. Not “bad” per se but just an odd duck for an expensive steakhouse on a weekend night. I don’t like that even if you have a reservation and request to sit outside, you’re then put in a queue for outside.

Outstanding experience. Made reservation that afternoon for 6 pm. Arrived at 6 and seated immediately. Great waiter and team. Food came quickly and was fantastic. Waiter even helped us figure out what to do later. It was my first trip with a new friend. I am certain we will make it an annual event.

I really enjoy Cut, we do a come here pretty often. The ambiance is great, the service is a;ways good, though it lacks the friendliness and originality of Maple and Ash. No one is going to remember your name here.

The last time we came, I was with 2 of my girlfriends. 2 of us got the surf and turf Benedict, my other friend ordered the breakfast sandwich. The Benedicts were both severally over cooked. The eggs were between hard and medium, but more towards the hard side. And my filet was almost well done, barely any visible pink, yet it still lacked a real crust. My friend’s breakfast suffered the same fate.

To be fair, when our server asked us if everything was ok, we didn’t complain, it isn’t worth it to me. I come here more for the ambiance than anything else. But eggs benny isn’t exactly a ridiculously complicated dish, and how does a steak place mess up 2 filets?

Bottom line, when it is a beautiful sunny day, I am still coming back. But any other time, no way. There are far better options, that are just a block or two away.

Service was amazing. Our waiter was patient, yet right there when you needed him. Food was as good as would be expected. Great dessert capped off the evening. Wait for a table outside. The setting is wonderful.

The sides need to be better than that. Downtown Chicago has a lot of competition and for that reason I don’t see myself going back. Steak was ok, 7/10. Salad was awesome, soup ok. Ambiance awesome by the river.

Great food. Service at table was great - got us out the door quickly for the theater. However it was a bit of a mess at the reception as a few overserved customers were insisting on distracting the maitre’d to give him a t shirt. Very strange - held up several parties.

One of our favorite steakhouses in Chicago! Our only minor complaint is that it is quite loud inside and hard to heard people at your own table. Food is outstanding! Service is impeccable. Beautiful views of the city!

This used to be a go to place for me, but after the last few visits, it is off my list. Very loud, their main priority is to turn your table over in 60 min. Steak was cooked med rare but the outside was so burnt and charred, it lost all its flavor. Better choices out there in this category. Sad.

Our booth (that I requested) was fabulous. Our waiter (can’t remember his name) was superb. Even my guest (from Colorado) said he knew when to approach and not too often and great suggestions (quantity wise) on the amount of food to order. We still had a huge doggy bag. I appreciated the bday treat and surprise at the end. The bday guy did also! This was our 2nd time and will be back again. Thank you.

Chicago Cut is the place to celebrate!

My wife and I were celebrating her major triathlon achievement and they rolled out the red carpet!

The service is always impeccable...just let the waiter guide you though the menu and wine list. You’ll be glad you did.

It’s pricey, but worth every penny!
