Amazing. The food, the service, the view of the river… the staff all worked together seamlessly to provide a great experience. We were in an out in 1.5 hrs. The food was seriously memorable. I’ve never had such an amazing meal! It is pricey, but perfect for a special occasion. You need to try this place!

The view as well as our server were phenomenal. Unfortunately, we were completely underwhelmed with the food (lobster-cargo was way over cooked, the bone-in ribeye was tough and taste-wise the food was generally bland.

The wife & I were celebrating our 28th anniversary and having dined with Chicago Cut now for the 3rd time over the years, we really want to love it. Again, the service, ambiance, view and outdoor seating on a beautiful early fall evening in Chicago were unmatched. Unfortunately, the food here has yet to play its part at Chicago Cut.

Finally, we are no strangers to fine dining but for the cost, somehow the food just never seems to keep pace with everything else this phenomenal location has to offer. Good but far from great.

I eat at Chicago Cut often...eight times in the past year. My dinner on Saturday night was VERY disappointing. I hope it was just a bad night for Chicago Cut because it was not good. I took an out of town guest and Chicago Cut did not come across as a top notch steak house to him. I was embarrassed because I wanted to have a great evening We had an 8 pm reservation that I had made weeks ago. Terrible outside table with no river view and super uncomfortable chairs....Most tables outside have better chairs but we got stuck with one of the bad ones.....The waiter rushed us and did not seem to have a clue about the menu or what he was doing. I had to ask for water. Our white wine was warm, not chilled and tasted like it had been sitting out all night. My filet which I ordered medium rare was tough and hard to chew. The truffled scalloped potatoes were burned on top. I have ordered these items before and always been happy with them. The dinner was below mediocre and the table and view were terrible. Not worth what I spent on the special dinner.

There are a lot of great restaurants in the world...I have been fortunate to experience some of them. Having said that, it is very difficult to get the best of every one of them 100% of the time. Our night at Chicago Cut was without a doubt that elusive perfect experience. Everything was exceptional..., how hard is it to make 8 people happy all at the same time?? The service from our server, Joe, was the best I have ever experienced at any restaurant in the world. This was not my first visit to Chicago Cut (and believe me Chicago Cut is GREAT), but it was the first with Joe. And it was Joe's 6th night working there. He nailed it. Thank you Joe! Our group was blown away with your attention to detail, your command of the menu, the timing of the food, and the professional way you met our needs. You said up front that you wanted a great experience for us. Thank you! It was the Best Ever!

First, our server, Joe, was beyond exceptional. Super attentive, kind, and very efficient. Gave great recommendations as well.

However, the host, René (I believe was his name) was incredibly rude. We had called ahead to mention we were running 15 minutes late. When we arrived 16 (yes, in the literal sense, sixteen minutes, 1 minute longer than our expected 15 minutes), he said “well, you are 16 minutes late, so we can no longer seat you.” Because my partner can be equally abrasive when insulted, he was able to win that battle, and we were seated — ordering promptly and efficiently, even ordering for our friends who had not yet arrived — out of respect for the staff and Chefs.

The food was great, albeit a bit overpriced. The ambiance was impeccable, right along the bank of the River. And the drinks were stiff. Aside from the host, everything else is worthy of a recommendation.

We celebrated our anniversary here. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. A little noisy and we were sat very close to the entrance, so lots of foot traffic past our table but other than that, no major complaints. Highly recommend the lobsterscargo appetizer, absolutely delicious.

This place was absolutely fantastic! The service here is first class. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by every staff member waking by, and make you feel welcomed. The host does an excellent job finding the right table for the occasion and paring you with the right server. The food is also out of this world! The steak is so flavorful and cooked perfectly! Highly recommend the bone in ribeye!
