Great Italian experience! Our waiter was top-notch and so very friendly. The veal marsala was the best I've had.

Food was delicious but is a bit pricey. I left a good review but I have had better food for the price, so not worth a 5 star rating but not bad for anything less than a 3 Star rating

We visited Chicago and went two nights in a row, it was that good! The atmosphere is really diverse in my opinion. The first night we sat at the bar and ate. The beer selection is outstanding, and the service was great. The food was quick to arrive, but was not "fast food." They have a bunch of TV's in the bar area for watching sports as well. Our visit the next night was for Valentines Day. We made a reservation and were promptly seated upon arrival. The atmosphere in the dining room is very different, and very enjoyable. You get a head waiter and an assistant waiter that takes care of your water, bread, etc. They were both very attentive without being distracting. The food was once again,outstanding! At the end of the day, it satisfies whatever dining need you have- from a refined bar area, to a very nice date night or family dinner out. I couldn't recommend them more. And the memorabilia they have from the sporting world is also very interesting. If you know the Harry Caray name, you understand why.

The food was fine, but our waiter served us like we were at a fast food restaurant. We were in and out of there within 1 hour so our dining experience felt ridiculously rushed even with a three course meal. They need to slow it down a bit.

The best steak I have had in recent memory. I was apprehensive asking for it to be done to a medium wellness, but it was perfect all the way through. Well-seasoned, delicious and a good size. I can't believe it's been so long since we were here last.

We were seated right away, our server was friendly and fun and it did not seem to bother him that we both ordered salads instead of an entree. It is early in the year you know, still working on our New Years resolutions, LOL. The meal came out very quickly and was delicious! I just may order salads more often!

This restaurant is amazing!! I fly from Colorado to Chicago every January 27th to celebrate my birthday with my girlfriend, at Harry Caray’s. The steak here is absolutely incredible. They also go out of their way to make our time very special. I recommend it to anyone visiting the city. Thank you to the Management for running such an incredible business.

I was visiting friends in Chicago where one would expect to find the best steak in the world. I ordered an "aged" ribeye that did taste quite old. In spite of being medium rare, it was dry, tasteless , and gristly. This is not what I expect for a $50 steak. Oddly enough, the rest of the group did not order steak, and their choices were quite good. I guess that this really is not a "steak house".

The food was amazing and came out fairly quickly. Our waiter was awesome. He was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu and different types of steaks that they offered. He was also funny and an all around great guy. Also, kudos to the guy filling up drink glasses. The place was packed but he made sure that no ones water glass reached less than half empty. We definitely plan on going back the next time we are in Chicago.

Wasn’t sure what to expect before we came. Was a bit worried it might be touristy and not very good (think Bubba Gump). Wow! I was very pleasantly surprised!!! The atmosphere was casual yet sophisticated. The service was friendly, attentive and professional. The food... the food was delectable! It wasn’t over worked and didn’t try too hard. One of the best steaks I have had in my life. Desserts and coffees didn’t disappoint either. All in all, a wonderful place to dine! Highly recommend. I can’t wait to get back to Chicago to dine here again!

We had an AMAZING New Year's Eve dinner here. The steak was one of the best I've ever had - we enjoyed it so much! In fact, every morsel of food was amazing. The steak (cooked & seasoned perfectly), the creamed spinach, macaroni and cheese, and the key lime pie!! We were gluttonous and it was the perfect place to do that.

You could tell this was just a money making night for them, my dinner was sent back after looking around a lot of tables did the same. The waiter was never around I had to flag him down for a drink and to order. I would not go there when there are so much around in such an amazing city.

We dined at Harry Caray's before going to the theater. We had booked a reservation and they got us right in. The Italian food was outstanding. We had the chicken marsala and the chicken parmesan. Both were really outstanding. The service was great. After dinner we had extra time and hung out in the bar for a bit. The complementary chips they serve there are delicious as well.

Harry Caray’s does not disappoint. All four of us made a different selection and all were pleased. The reason we come back when we are in town is the LAMB CHOPS OREGANATO - my husband’s favorite. Cheers to the service as well; Carlos and his team is excellent.
