we went for our anniversary and were treated like the most important people there! the manager wished us a happy anniversary and our waiter surprised us with a free dessert!
We went for my wife’s birthday.
Quiet Sunday evening, restaurant was about 1/3 filled. Great food and generous portions. The NY strip was perfectly prepared and flavorful, as were our other courses. Waiter was nice but very forgetful. Forgot 2nd glass of wine for both my wife and me (we reminded him and it arrived 20mins later). Forgot side dish (never arrived). It wasn’t busy, so no reason there. We’d try it again, and hope for a waiter who had his Wheaties that day.
We had a wonderful dinner with great service from our server Hector.
Food was excellent except for the lobster Mac & cheese. They should try a baked recipe. We indicated on open table that we were there for a birthday celebration but there was no recognition. The decor and environment was excellent. The wine was great.
I could not rate the food because we never received it. Arrived early and was seated by 7:00 pm per our reservation. The waiter took the drink order and we had to remind him that we wanted appetizers as well. Thirty minutes later our drinks arrived. Twenty minutes after that the oyster Rockefeller and shrimp cocktail showed up. The problem is my wife ordered shrimp de Jonghe. The waiter apologized and put in a new order for the correct item. The time is now 8:00 pm. Our main entree was ordered at the time we ordered the appetizers. At 8:15 we questioned the waiter about or main coarse he stated he would check on it. Note the family sitting in the booth next to us had received their meal while we continued to wait. By this time its 8:20pm we had no meal and requested the manager. The manager said she would personally check to find out what was the hold up. We couldn't wait any longer because of the 9:00pm concert we purchased tickets for. Out of all the upscale steakhouses we've visited.Chicago Firehouse was the worst. Will not patronize again.
Food was excellent. The service was a tad slow but otherwise an outstanding meal and experience!
Friends treated me for My Birthday. The remodel of this Restaurant is Awesome.
Wait staff Awesome, Very Professional, Attentive and Friendly.
The Maitre d asked if we were celebrating a Special occasion, said Yes My Birthday I received an extra dessert ICE CREAM. Ice Cream very Good.
I will return with other friends to celebrate their special occasion.
Our waiter awesome sorry I don't remember his name.
Great high end place to impress your lady
It’s a steakhouse, so it’s more expensive that we’d like to pay for date night, but we had a beautiful meal and enjoyed great service. I had the filet and my fiancé had the prime rib. Both were delicious. The french fries were perfect, and the lobster Mac and cheese and asparagus were also well prepared
I'll first say that the food was good. However, if I'm paying $250, with reservations, I would expect a better table than one in the bar with a view of the dining room. Plenty of places in the city with much better ambiance.
My husband and I were thrilled to realize this gem had finally opened since the fire! The building is historic, the ambience inside with the decor and especially the murals is unmatched and the food is to die for...Husband had filet mignon with au gratin potatoes, oysters rockefeller and carrot cake for dessert. I had prime rib, baked potato, crab cakes and key lime pie. We were extremely pleased. Our server, Matthew, was warm friendly and very attentive. The hostess enouraged us to look around at the new solarium and the upstairs rooms for private parties. A couple different managers came to ask us how things were and they were genuinely friendly..not just "doing their job". It is worth the money and we WILL be going back
Pricy pricy pricy, and the strip steak wasn't that good.
We ate there at 1800 on a snowy Saturday during the Auto Show. By the time we left, the restaurant was getting full but the noise level was well under control. The filets were excellent. We had a well-intentioned waiter who was probably new to the job. We hope he gets a better feeling for what's expected of him.
Our first visit since the rebuild and we won't wait as long to return. Delicious meal, warm atmosphere, exceptional service.
