I’d highly recommend this restaurant for the following reasons.
4. And you never have to ask for anything.
this is our second visit to Maple & Ash. It was as good as the first. Excellent food and Service.
Arrived for a 9pm reservation. Wasn’t seated until 9:45pm. Drinks, wine and ambiance were fantastic. The ribeye was less marbled and less flavorful than expected, but oh well. Service was good.
Very delicious but very expensive. Great ambiance and service. A bit disappointed in the dessert; the chocolate hazelnut cake looked fantastic but did not taste like anything special, which was surprising for such a nice restaurant.
Wonderful birthday dinner
Great server, great food !!
This was probably my 6th or 7th visit to Maple and Ash and, by far, my worst experience so far. The service was about as bad as it could be. Our waiter disappears for 15 minutes at a time. I dont mean he just didn’t check in, I mean he was no where to be found. I ordered a NY Strip medium rare plus and it came rare. Took a long time to send it back because - guessed it - the waiter had disappeared again. When he did show up he tried to argue that it wasn’t too rare but quickly backtrack and agreed. It was such an odd encounter that even the guy at the table next to us made a comment about it. Anyway, they took it away and brought the same one back kind of cooked more on one side. But the same on the other so it was still undercooked. In the end, the floor manager came by and offered to comp it. Fine. We had devoured everything else’s because everything was so good. The crudo was exceptional. So, the bill comes and the steak is on there. So I wave to wait until the waiter made his next annual visit to point that out. It got removed, I paid and tipped based on the larger amount and we left. I can’t explain why things went so poorly this time when the track record has always been exceptional. There was a large private party underway so maybe that impacted things. Not sure that is a good excuse though.
Loved the food and ambiance!
If you just can’t live without Las Vegas this place is for you. Loud, pricey and long on pretension. But surprisingly food is pretty good even for a non steak eater. Just bring your limitless credit card and wait to be seated in noisy boisterous dining room with techno music set to max with upper 1%ers bragging about their big bag.
I loved every part of the experience and our server Eric was amazing! We were greeted with a welcome cocktail/shot and Eric took us through the menu. We ended up splitting multiple things so the 3 of us could taste as much as possible. We got the crab salad and an order of wood fire scallops to start (both amazing). We shared the Ricotta Agnolotti pasta, Fire Roasted Chicken & the whole branzino. For sides we shared the green beans and the potatoes au gratin... OMG these potatoes. I wanted to bathe in them! I only wish we weren't going out on the town or we would have taken everything home for leftovers it was so yummy.
Thank you very much Eric and Maple and Ash for showing us a good time on our first night in Chicago!
Eric was a great server. Very helpful with selections, attentive, but not intrusive. Great food! Wonderful experience from start to finish!
This was a fabulous dining experience for me and I will definitely return. The food was great, the service was attentive and the restaurant has a great ambiance. This place is perfect for a date or even a small group. They are accommodating for celebrations and put a lot of effort into attention to details. I felt comfortable there and would gladly recommend to my friends for an overall great dining experience.
Once we got our table everything was 5 star. But.... we had a 8:30pm reservation and checked in at 8:15pm. We were told to check back at 8:30. Checked back at 8:30pm and was told nothing was available and they’d come get us. Finally at 9:15 we were seated. This seems to be their way of doing things as several other guests around us had the same experience. If you are going to take reservations then honor them.
Bday celebration was fantastic
I enjoyed dining at Maple & Ash this week. The restaurant was very beautiful! Service was excellent! Every staff member was kind and attentive. The food was delicious. However, the only problem I had was that my steak was too pink to my liking. I felt it could’ve been cooked a little more since I told the waitress I wanted my steak to be medium well. Overall, I would definitely come back to dine here in the future and recommend Maple & Ash to friends.
Only mistake was our server ordering the wrong temperature on one steak. He was very apologetic and immediately corrected the mistake.
WOW! Incredible dining experience. From the second we arrived, we had an excellent time.
Our visit was thursday Sept 26 -645 reservation. Our waiter was funny- accommodating- and well informed about the menu. The food took a long long time to come out. Meatball appetizer was awesome..rest of meal was very mediocre at best - Salad was nothing special...Whitefish/halibut was over done and tasteless... was very disappointed...
Food is outstanding. Take off 1/2 star for service at the beginning when they were taking away plates before I finished eating. This was quickly corrected thank you. The roasted sea food tower is delicious; dry aged rib eye delicious. Highly recommended - a Chicago favorite.
Great birthday dinner. Service is exceptional and the food was exquisite.
It was amazing our server Sean was outstanding. Will be back soon
I went for my birthday which I included in my reservation notes along with dietary restrictions of the group. Even though we reminded our waiter, the meal still arrived without proper attention taken to a celiac allergy. Also, the birthday was entirely forgotten and not celebrated. It was a disappointing evening. For a restaurant that's usually so stellar in service it really bummed us out this time around.
Incredible food! My favorite restaurant! You wont regret it!
Excellent food and very friendly and thoughtful service. I will definitely return.
Amazing food selection! Best buffet brunch in the city!!
I can't write enough reviews about Maple & Ash. The BEST restaurant I've ever been to, and continue to go to despite having moved away from Chicago. Once again, apps were perfect, drinks were on point, service was incredible and the food... simply the best!
Wife’s Birthday, waitress was WONDERFUL!
Fantastic food. Fantastic service. My favorite ambiance of any steakhouse in the city. Already booked another reservation in a few short months. Cannot wait.
We had a great time at Maple and Ash, the service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. The atmosphere is very chic but not so chic that it makes up for the 450% wine mark up. There is no way that a Grgich Hills 2015 Cabernet should be $195. It’s almost laughable.
I still highly recommend Maple and Ash-just stick to the cocktails!
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! The chef’s tasting menu was one of the most generous ones my husband and I have had and a great way to try their food. Next time I have my eye on the bone-in filet mignon!
First time - awesome experience. Shawn is a phenomenal server ! Definitely will be back.
Great food. Better service.
Beyond impressive with the quality, ambience and class of the food and service. The only buffet that supersedes this one is the grande buffet on the Crystal Cruise which is an event in itself My only complaint is that for $65 pp a beverage of coffee or tea should come with the meal. I am not a huge eater so I had no room for the filet and salmon which was a shame. But I was passionate for the baked poached egg with feta, tomatoes, capers and sour dough in a skillet which made up for it. My daughter’s pancake syrup seeped into her roasted potatoes and she found nirvana and ended up getting a whole plate of potatoes and pouring syrup over them...and she’s a grown adult! She wants to return everyday! Still haven’t stopped talking about the experience
awesome food and service! thank you! i will definitely be back.
Perfect Brunch Atmosphere
The waiter declined to clear my brother’s plate when asked although the waiter cleared plates from other tables, and the waiter missed the cup and poured coffee on the table when refilling my friend’s coffee cup, then just left the tablecloth soaked with coffee, without making any effort to clean it up.
The food was fabulous though.
I’ve lived in Chicago for over 3 years and been to Maple & Ash about 10 times. We are always seeking out great spots to dine and bring our many out of town visitors to and this is our go to! I think Maple & Ash is my absolute favorite Chicago restaurant. The food is always fantastic, the service lack for nothing and it’s a beautiful atmosphere.
