We visited Stetson for Valentine's Day. The restaurant was pleasant and the service was respectful. We started with cocktails and the Octopus shared plate. The cocktails were bold and robust and the octopus was absolutely delightful - highly recommend. We then moved to a couple of pieces of snapper nigiri which were fresh and appetizing. Our entree was the 24oz bone in ribeye, which they graciously split for me and my better half. The steak was cooked very well and the mushroom sauce we ordered with was a great touch. We also had the brussel sprouts for a side item which were a great compliment to the steak. All in all, a solid 4 stars. I thought the prices were a touch high, but it is downtown Chicago. The service was quaint and respectful but didn't match the high end presentation that the restaurant seemed to aspire to. Cocktails were strong and robust which was appreciated for the high end pricing, so overall, a solid choice for the value and we would return. More

Discover Chicago Downtown / Loop

Chicago's downtown Loop district is a bustling center of commerce known for its historical scenery and unique urban culture. Located between Chicago Street and Harrison Street, the Loop is also home to numerous eateries that draw inspiration from across the world. Visitors to the Loop regularly enjoy Chicago-style deep-dish pizza and hot dogs. While these classic offerings have earned a reputation as Chicago's most popular foods, foodies and culinary experts are impressed by the Loop's hip restaurants that are revolutionizing the dining scene. Many small restaurants in the Loop offer upscale New American fare. New American dishes often consist of traditional American dishes that are fused with foreign flavors. People in search of romantic dining environments can enjoy upscale steakhouses. Small family-owned Southern and Eastern European restaurants are also popular in the Downtown/Loop area.
