As always, service is outstanding. The food here is consistent and excellent. Specials are often inventive. This is a well-managed restaurant shown by consistent wait staff and attention by the management.

The filet mignon was perfectly cooked to a uniform medium rear temperature with a nice crust. The side we selected of brussel sprouts with apple slices and bacon was very good. The ambiance was nice complemented by music from the adjacent bar.

Service was spectacular. Food was tasty, enjoyed everything that we ordered. Prices are higher since the ownership change, but it's not entirely overpriced for the area.

 (Chicago)·Dined 3 days ago

This was our first visit to Chicago's. Overall, our family (four of us aged 13, 45, 71 and 79) enjoyed it.

Kudos: Parking was quick, nearby, and very user-friendly. Our table was ready at the time we had reserved it: (6:00 PM on Sat/20 Jan 18) -- no waiting. Drinks were excellent, and (major point) the quality of the food was outstanding: whoever is running your kitchen really knows his/her stuff!

Room for impropvement: 1) There was some initial confusion about who'd be our waiter: we started with Brian, then a couple of minutes later he was replaced by Liz. (Apparently it was Liz' legitimate table.)

2) Major complaint: Our table (64/1) had very little "wiggle room" around it; it was jammed far too closely to surrounding tables/diners. Waiters were unable to squeeze between our table and the adjoining one, which made it awkward for all concerned. I'd recommend eliminating our 4-person table entirely to free up space.

3) Our waitress (LIz) was very pleasant and engaging, but missed a few minor details on our orders; she, however, rectified them quickly and efficiently, and we'd be happy to have her again.

4) Our orders were taken in 3 stages: drinks, then appetizers, then entrees. But we had to finish each stage before our menus were finally picked up. It was awkward to hold the large menus in our laps while eating our appetizers. Couldn't we have ordered the appetizers and entrees at the same time (as everywhere else) so we wouldn't have had to juggle the menus for so long?

All in all, however, it was a pleasant experience, and we'll definitely be back!

Thank you for your interest in our feedback. We are not novice diners; we've eaten in all 50 states and 17 foreign countries and in just the past year have dines in many cities, including London and Paris.

As always, we were completely pleased with our dining experience at Chicago's. This quickly became a date night favorite, and for good reason. The service is great, and the food is superb. Every dining experience here since the first time has been 100% on point. And a special thanks to the owner, Mark, who brought some much needed class back to the dining experience for nice restaurants.

Very disappointing. Its been inconsistent over the years. Thought it had gotten better with new ownership, but our recent experience proved otherwise. Service was apathetic at best. The nickel/diming they do for everything is ridiculous. Substituting a vegetable over pasta should not require an up charge. In my son's case they charged $2.00 for substituting and then added a $5.00 side dish fee. 2 guests ordered pork loin "specials" - and were told that house salad don't come with meal. How is that when salads come with most other featured entrees? Again--- the inconsistency. And when the manager comes over to address the up charges and apologizes and assures you he will take care of it and then only takes $2.00 off the check. It's not about the amount, its the principle. We will not be back. Too many other good options now in the community.

One of our go to spots. Good variety. Good preparation. Good value. One note: At 545 the heat was still not taking off the day chill. Later was better—especially after several patrons made comments about the cool temperatures.

Finest example of mediocrity in East Cobb. The service is decent, the atmosphere is pageant enough, it's the food that is so disappointing. They did nothing particularly bad, it's just that none of it was particularly good. My salmon was mmeeeh. My wife's steak must have come from a miniature steer. The brussel sprouts were overcooked. This was my third visit to this restaurant and will be my last.

Had reservation and no problem getting seated. Ordered Prime Rib and asked for Horseradish Sauce and Ground Horseradish at time of order. I got neither when served (thought creamed always came with prime rib). Was half way through meal before we flagged somebody down for the missing horseradish. Other than that service was OK but waiter did very little follow-up. Prime Rib was OK but have certainly had better. Wife had seafood dish she said was OK but average. Just don't think Chicago's is anywhere close to what it was at one time.

Excellent service as always. The owner, Mark, visits every table making sure his customers have the best experience.

The ribs are to die for and the shrimp and scollop dish is wonderful. In the last two years we have not had a bad meal or less than attentive and unobstrusive service.

Chicago's is a nicer upscale restaurant over the traditional chains like O'Charlies and such, but not so uppity that you get 2 oz of food for $$$. The food is very good and the service is great. Every time we eat here we say we need to get back more often because of the good experience. We really like going to local places and this one is near the top of the list. You won't be sorry.

We came to Chicago's for dinner with friends. We were seated promptly once everyone in our party arrived. The food was delicious, and the service was good, and prices for most entrees are in the $20 to $30 range. A good restaurant for special occasions. Chicago's was packed making the noise level high which made it somewhat hard to have a conversation. But it was manageable. But again, the food is very good which is why we picked Chicago's.

As always the service at Chicago's was excellent. We had the same waitperson as 2 times before, Eric, who recogonized us - always nice. Our martinis were perfect and delightful. My dish was excellent, but my date got the Puttanesca which lack seasonings. However, the overall experience was lovely and we will definitely return for our next important celebration.

Three of four of us had very good food. The fourth ordered the Beef Stroganoff which only contained two small pieces of beef (maybe vegan?). Also, we requested a booth when we arrived and were told that they were reserved for large parties (we had four). After dining for 1 and 1/2 hours I observed that two booths remained empty the entire time. My point being that small things make a difference. Our waitress was excellent, food was good just make some small tweaks to up your game. We will be back.

It was a wonderful dining experience, with superb quality food and excellent wait service with our server, Adam. I'm pleased to say that this restaurant will be in our top 5 choices from here on out. Thank you, Chicago's, for a fantastic dining experience!

First, let me say it was Christmas Eve so I know that’s a busy night. Our waitress was friendly but always seemed a step behind. Second, we were seated beside the kitchen door and could hear someone barking orders most of the dinner. Not great ambiance but I’m sure if we were seated in another part we wouldn’t have heard it. Third, the food was delicious. My steak was very tasty. My husband was happy to see the shrimp and scallops dish back on the menu. The cocktails, wine, and beer were all good as well. Overall, not the absolute best dining experience but certainly not the worst. When you spend $50+ per person, you want to really enjoy it. I think we almost did.

We have been coming here for 30 years and now it seems the new management is making good progress returning Chicago's to its former high level. Kudos for that.

To start we had the appetizer special - crab artichoke dip, and it was very tasty and a nice portion to share. I had a martini which was a nice size. Wife had one of the wines by the glass (KatherineGoldschmidt‘CrazyCreek’CabernetSauvignonCalifornia‘15) and it was nice.

For the main course my wife ordered the shrimp and grits and it was excellent! Nice smoky flavor, colorful with red and green peppers, very satisfying (yes I had some of it too since she was raving about it). I had the beef wellington, it was just OK. It was fine but I would not order that again honestly. I usually go with one of the Chicago's Classics, steak or fish. One thing I long for is the return of "fish your way" where they previously had several options for an fish e.g. Mediterranean style.

This was a Saturday night and they had a nice jazz trio playing in the bar. Its nice that I can hear them but not overwhelmed in the dining area. Just right.

You can read my previous reviews. We've been diners from the beginning. There was a time when the quality of the food and service declined, but under new ownership, there has been rather steady improvement. Our recent dining experience was flawless. Two classics Pecan Crusted Chicken and Filet Mignon au Poivre were as near perfect as they could be. Waitress was appropriately attentive and helpful. Definitely recommended.

Don’t waste your time or money! Went for a ladies night out. Three of us ordered the chicken piccata and it came out to the table lukewarm and tasteless. No seasoning was used to prepare the dish. The other guest ordered a salad with salmon added. She ordered the salmon medium, but it came to the table seared on the outside and raw in the inside. The waitress came by and took the food to be corrected. When the plate was returned, they had put the same mangled piece of salmon she had eaten off of back on the grill and returned it to her!!! Cross-contamination!

The new owner/manager came over to the table with an attitude and said that they routinely throw food that has been served in the dining room back on the grill, and that all restaurants do it. At that point all four of us lost our appetite for any food from this restaurant, and promptly paid our bill and left. Save yourself the time and trouble. There are many better restaurants to choose from in the greater Atlanta area that care about food preparation and customer service. Chicago’s is not one of them! Beware of the new management. Based on this and other reviews, this place is circling the drain!!!

We were in town visiting family and enjoyed this place immensely! We ordered the prime rib and grilled salmon. Both entrees were excellent. The service was fantastic and our cocktails, (house margarita made with two tequilas, agave and lime, and a skinny margarita) were handcrafted especially to our liking. The creme brulee was over the top. Five stars all the way! Check it out!

Very disappointed after reading the article in the East Cobber magazine. Service was slow, food was lame - scallops salted so heavily they were not edible. Fried Fish and chips overcooked, including the fries and hushpuppies.

Were told that the kitchen doesn't make changes since they are so busy?

Finally, every time we have eaten at this establishment in the past it has been freezing cold, this time was no different.

It's been a few years since we dined there, but we tried it because of the article. Waste of time.
