Steak | River North (Chicago), Chicago

Tried way to hard to be a “place” versus a steakhouse. Our server was the best part of the evening. While the steaks were large and cooked to temperature, everyone at the table agreed each was over seasoned (and rendered more salt than steak). Don’t go if you’re wanting to carry on a conversation, this is one of the loudest restaurants I’ve ever been in. It was impossible to talk to anyone other than the person next to me. Left out the other 4 of my guests. If you’re a local, I suppose it’s worth doing once. If, like me, are in Chicago on business (and can expense it) and need to build a relationship with your clients, keep looking. More

I came here with a bunch of friends and we really enjoyed the food and ambiance of the restaurant. For some reason there wasn't a lot of people when we went on Saturday night at 7pm. The service was good and there were lots of TVs playing sports. The only thing I didn't like is that the music was too loud. It was almost as loud as a club in there, although they played some really good beats! Overall really enjoyed taking my group here and would love to come back! More

We had an amazing time at Steak 48. The food was amazing- perfectly cooked and seasoned- but more importantly, the service is hands down the best in Chicago. More

Service, atmosphere, view, all 10/10. I’ve had every dish they serve better for 1/3 the price, however. At Gibson’s, though, you pay for the experience. More

Great food, great service and an all around good time. The wine list is really aggressively priced - not exactly a value, although the sommelier did come up with a Groth that was young but drinkable. Friendly staff, memorable evening. More
