To say that Armin and the entire staff at this establishment are professional is an understatement. From drink, dinner and wine pairings to the decadent desserts, you can not go wrong for a romantic dinner or business event. Live music Tuesday night was an added flavor

Old school steak house with good seafood options. Well trained wait staff and professional authentic management. Wet-aged beef, hearty portions. Also well presented chops and chicken on menu. Full bar and small but good wine list. Most items ala cart, some with sides. Soup or salad accompany many options. Good appetizers although some a bit too saucy. Solid desserts steakhouse desserts.

Everything was great, food delicious. My only recommendation would be regarding the tossed
dinner salad. Always put the dressing on the side. All of our salads were over drenched with
dressing making some inedible.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice quiet dinner on a Sunday evening. Have been here a few times and the service never disappoints. The food is excellent, our server who was also handling the bar was always available and attentive to our questions. The prices are a bit high but comparable to higher end dining. This is the place to go for a quiet dinner with great service.

Nice place. Looks high end and a place that you can bring customers or have a business dinner. However, it always concerns me when the server is so sure that they don’t write down the order. If they remember everything in detail, no problem, everything works well and you come out looking good. But when you get several things wrong.... it’s just not worth it. Why risk it? Better to just write it down and get it right the first time no?

As always George Kalkounos doesn’t leave room for disappointment. Sherry is lovely! Arie is a delight and Monica was hands down the best bar server I’ve had, so knowledgeable and friendly.
Can’t wait to go back!
1/2 off appetizer til 7 pm! Great value!

Michael was our server for our 2 year anniversary and gave us the best hospitality I have ever seen in all my years. I used to work in restaurants all through college, and understand the need for ownership, confidence of the menu, humor and integrity with the table, and a "sense of urgency," and yet refinement in approach to make each guest feel welcomed and special. Michael did this for us with his knowledge of the menu, anticipation of our needs, recommendations and suggestions, as well as his quick-wit humor and sarcasm, which we enjoyed and added to the experience.

The food itself was wonderful; we ordered the grilled calamari which was done nicely; not rubbery or chewy. We followed this with their rendition of the Wedge Salad. The lettuce was crisp, the ingredients fresh, and the dressing was just right. We also enjoyed a little bit of the "smoky" taste coming from the bacon that added to the dressing and the tomato combination. Finally, we each had our dinner. I had the 18 oz bone-in NY Strip medium rare, and my girlfriend had the 10 oz Filet rare, with a side of wasabi mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. We each had our steaks topped with the maple-seared horseradish. Both were cooked perfectly, and the flavors went very well with everything else we had. My girlfriend and I finished the meal with a Tiramisu from the House, and a nice double candle lit to "melt together" to pay tribute to our anniversary.

Overall, the food was wonderful, the service was impeccable, and the dining atmosphere was appropriate for the occasion. We recommend this location to anyone interested in having a nice evening out or a special occasion, and we will be back again soon.

Thank you!

I'm not a stranger to high-end steakhouses and their steaks were not even close to high-end. The steaks didn't taste aged tender but rather tenderized. My husband ordered a medium rare bone in porterhouse and it came out rare so he sent it back. It came out again still rare. The steak was so blue it was not tender and would not easily separate from the bone. He did tell management when they saw he ate little and we did get free dessert. I will say for the cost I would have spent a little more and gone down the street to Morton's for a better product and experience. I would not recommend nor will we go back again. My father who had been there before had only one thing to say, now I remember why I said I would not go back again the last time.

I do have friends that like this restaurant, however, we have gone twice and unfortunately did not enjoy our experience. Both times were to celebrate my Birthday. My steak was way to charred, should give people an option. And, my lobster was so over cooked I was hardly able to cut it with a knife. For me, it is extremely loud and not very romantic.
Thank you for letting me voice my opinion.

The ambiance was definitely classy and old school. The service was great and overall what a true restaurant should be. My filet mignon wasn’t cooked the way I ordered it but I’ll definitely go back one more time to give them another chance. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

The Chicago Prime Steakhouse is the best overall restaurant in IL.
Check out the list I marked the Prime for,not many restaurants hit that many checks.
You'll almost always have the owner George stop by and greet you personally !

Hosted a business dinner (for 11) while we had meetings in Schaumburg, IL area. Selected Chicago Prime as it is a family run, non-chain premium Steak restaurant. We were not disappointed. All the amenities you'd expect, including the presentation of the steaks, the large shareable sides, etc... The owner came out to greet us. My Ribeye was arguably one of the best I've ever had. Highly recommended.

Service and food quality very good. Tony, our server was very pleasant and made us feel welcomed. Quality of the steaks as good as other top notch steak restaurants. You want a decadent side dish - try the applewood smoked bacon sticks. Tony our server gave us a tip that next time - order the bacon sticks as an appetizer. Overall experience was great !!!! Will definitely come again.

The food portions are large! The smallest steak is 10 ounces! and the sides are meant to be shared, so when you want potatoes and green beans for two people...that is a lot of food! If comparing to other high end 'steak houses', you get more for you money here! ie you get 5 shrimp on the Starter Menu vs others serving only 3. Steak very well prepared with appropriate seasoning. And Salads are included! While everything was tasty, there wasn't anything super spectacular about our meal.
