Steakhouse
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.

This is a place we've wanted to visit for some time as I listen to Waddle & Sylvie on the radio and hear how they rave about this place. The praise is well-deserved as the entire family not only had a great meal but a great time as well. Our plans for a return visit are already underway!

Excellent as always. The go to place for a business meal. Great otherwise . Outdoor dining by the river highly recommended with good weather. Top tier and that includes the pricing, which is elite but fair given the quality.

Went Saturday night and had bad service from the time we sat down. Vegetable risotto tasted terrible (had a lemon flavor and hunks of parmesean), buns on the sliders they served were burnt (had to send back) and food is overpriced ($ 7 additional for a few pinches of truffle salt - really?). There are many fine steak houses in Chicago and this is not one of them. Was at The Capital Grille in Milwaukee last week and it blew this place away!

We had to wait 50 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. Food was not good at all. It is super overrated and overpriced steakhouse with average food. I will never ever dine with them since Chicago offers too many better options. Stay away if you do not waste your money !!!

Reservation for 2 at 5pm on a Sunday. Service was great and there was ample seating as most were choosing to sit outside. We were seated by the window with the view of the river. Dinner was great. She had an 8oz center cut fillet mignon. I enjoyed a 10oz Skirt steak. Both were paired with sauted spinach and mushrooms. The service was great and our host/waiter was amazing. Definitely give this place a try and order the Delmonico or bone in Ribeye. You won't be disappointed.

Met friends who were vacationing in the city for the weekend and we chose chicago cut because we wanted to have a special night out at a fabulous steak house. We picked the right spot!! Dinner was delicious.. the porterhouse, skirt steak, filet mignon, sea bass, truffled potatoes & brussle sprouts were all wonderful and cooked to perfection. I would say skip the crab legs- they were over cooked and rubbery. Cocktails & wine were also superb. The service was beyond anything I've experienced anywhere else. Our server Tyler was fantastic! No detail was overlooked. When appetizers were ordered for the table, he portioned them out for each of us. My husband and I split the porter house and they split the steaak for us ahead of time. Drinks were always flowing and we wanted for NOTHING!! The ambiance of course was fantastic and the evening as a whole was perfect. There is no doubt this place is pricey but our party of six left feeling it was worth every penny! Highly recommend!

We were celebrating our anniversary. I requested a riverfront table and pushed our reservation up an hour to increase our chances. We arrived at 5pm. It was not crowded. There were plenty of good seats available. We were initially seated at a table where others were on the outside of us. I asked for a table with a true river view. We were then taken to the other end where the view was not so great. I explained that we pushed up our res to get a good view and asked could we sit a few tables down. I was told those were “reserved”. Didn’t I make a reservation? Am I not counted in the “reserved” category? We settled for another table, but I was not happy with the exchange. I discussed this with Kirby, one of the managers. He apologized, but his demeanor was indifferent.

Our waiter, the wait staff, and possibly another manager that asked us did we have everything we needed, were all great. The drinks and food were delicious! We had corn chowder, Caesar salad, sea bass, steak and crab.

Chicago has so many great restaurants. You will spend your money, recommend, and frequent places where you feel welcomed and valued as a customer—when you arrive and when you leave. It’s about the customer experience, which differentiates a great restaurant from an outstanding one.

Our server was lovely. Manager had no interest in answering a question from us, and food was lukewarm. We used to love going to Chicago Cut, and went often pre-covid. Sad we had such a poor experience. I will give them another chance, however, it will be a while before I do so.
