What Insiders Are Saying
Maple & Ash sits in the middle of the Chicago steakhouse Venn diagram. It’s both new-school and old.
Service was excellent. Steak was very good, however, French onion soup disappointing and side of vegetables were poor.
Energetic atmosphere with impeccable service and excellent food.
Best restaurant in the city. Food and wine off the charts. Service is fun and on top of it. Simply fantastic.
Enjoyed our 30th wedding anniversary at Maple & Ash with friends. The restaurant came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. My favorite dish was the seafood tower. So delicious. The photo booth on the first floor was a fun way to end the evening.
Fantastic experience. We had the “I don’t give a f*^k” 3 course chef’s best with desert. It was phenomenal from start to finish. Mason, our server, set the tone for a great evening. High praises for a wonderful meal and service.
Was concerned that my ten year old would get bored but he absolutely loved the ice cream, make your own sundae. He also loved his filet minon cooked to perfection with fries and Mac and cheese. Watching him order all that makes me smile. And he enjoyed his welcome non alcoholic cocktail. Thanks maple and ash, it was his sisters bday but he had the most fun
M&A was top notch in every way and as first time visitors to Chicago, fully exceeded our expectations of ambience, service, and food. Lovely experience!
As a small family we do not prefer too much noise that we had to scream over the top of our lungs ...going early is the key! We love everything !
My recent experience at Maple & Ash was quite disappointing, more so because since it opened it has been one of my favorite restaurants. I went there with my entire family to celebrate Mother's Day and my 40th birthday. My mom had been talking about getting a seafood tower the entire week, so we ordered it, but it never came and then when they brought out the entrees we realized it was never coming. My mom was really disappointed. I was also annoyed that the $75 Grass-fed New York Strip I ordered did not say it was bone-in (which every other bone-in steak seems to be indicated as such on the menu), so when it was served I sent it back to have the bone cut out and had to wait for it while everyone was eating. It's not a huge deal, but I don't like bone-in steaks, and for that price I feel like I should be able to choose. Our waiter was nice, but rarely checked in with us. We waited 20 minutes for dessert after ordering it. Overall, a disappointing experience for any occasion, but the fact it was for Mother's Day and my 40th was a real bummer. Service was always what I felt separated Maple & Ash from other similar restaurants, but in my opinion that has fallen off significantly from my recent dinner there.
Norris is the man! Always great food and great service!
Had a girl friend visiting from out of town to celebrate her birthday. Everyone at Maple and Ash were extremely accommodating. It’s her new favorite restaurant and she can’t wait to come back to Chicago to dine there again.
Love how once you're seated they make you a complimentary cocktail tableside!!! I ordered the scallops & filet mignon! So mouthwatering! The "pillows of love" are to die for❤❤❤
This experience was incredible. We got a special menu customized for the occasion saying congrats to our friend. We were treated with complementary cocktails to celebrate when we arrived, and all the food was plated at the table. The seafood tower is so die for and so is the apple galette.
Long story short, all of the food was beyond delicious and our server was extremely charismatic and attentive. We were celebrating a new job, but our server made the whole experience seem even more special. He celebrated with us and treated us like family. Thank you so much server Mr. Norris. You made this a truly memorable night.
First class experience. One of my favorite places ever.
As usual and outstanding experience. Every step is calculated and well managed at M&A
The service was spectacular, our server, Dan, was attentive, knowledgeable and a pleasure! The food was both a gastrointestinal delight and aromatherapy 😎
I thought our server Lauren, I think was pretty fun and great at here work! I thought the halibut serving size was too small and the glaze was too much.
Everything was perfect. Service is also best.
The food and service were great! Loved the starting cocktail and appetizer! The salmon was a bit small of portion for the price, but everything else was great!
We had a wonderful time celebrating my eldest son's 31st birthday .. it was our first time with Maple and Ash, we had an awesome server name Spencer and we had a great time .. the entire experience was stellar and we will be back!
We had brunch there for my girlfriend’s birthday. Everyone was very nice. The lady making the omelettes was amazing. Great service!
It was my boyfriend and I’s first experience at Maple & Ash. It was for his 30th birthday and I thought it would be the perfect place since he loves steak and you had the perfect celebration menus. My boyfriend had the best time and is continuously raving about this place to others. The food was excellent as well as the drinks and service. The only thing I would change is it is a bit dark and it can get a little loud with the music at night.
Had an absolutely wonderful time, staff was more then accommodating and friendly. So many small features and touches made the evening feel truly special. Sea food tower was delicious, the crab and oysters where amazing. The steak was outstandingly delicious and beautifully cooked both to medium rare and rare. Desert was fantastic with amazing espresso and a latte.
Amazing meal! The best evening anyone could ever experienced Chicago.
As we expected, the food and service were both excellent. 75 day aged steaks were the most flavorful I have ever had and the sides and appetizer were very unique. Our waiter was very helpful as well.
This establishment is very welcoming and the staff is quite personable. Once you are seated at your table, they serve you a “Welcome” cocktail, and a mini appetizer consisting of olives and cheese and another plate containing radishes and a soft cheese. Next comes a delicious serving of sour dough bread and creamy butter. Our server, Dan was incredible! It was my first visit, and he patiently explained the menu and specials and recommended dishes to try. I had the Cowgirl Ribeye, while my dining companion tried the fat cap ribeye steak. The cap steak was delicious according to my friend, while my Cowgirl tasted great, but I only had 3 bites...we also shared mushrooms, potatoes au gratin and at my request, sautéed spinach. The mushrooms and potatoes were fabulous, the spinach could have been seasoned better. My only regret is that because we had so much food, I requested the remainder be packed to take home with me. It included almost an entire steak, spinach, au gratin potatoes and mushrooms; I inadvertently left my bag by the coat room and didn’t realize it until I had left the premises. I called within 15 minutes to find if my $125+ meal was still available. I was told someone would call me back, of course it never happened...based on the samples I tried, it was delicious, but every time I think of the cost associated with my leftovers, I’m disappointed. Would I recommend M&A? Yes, but since the impeccable customer service disappears once you leave the premises, protect your bag like you would protect your purse!
I thought it was just going to be a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant, but it became much more of an experience than I thought! Highly recommend!
This was my first time to Maple & Ash and everything was amazing. Our server/captain Raymond was fantastic with his suggestions and answering the couple of questions we had. The food and service was exceptional. I made this reservation for a birthday celebration and the special touches they added were great. Can't wait to go back again!
Amazing experience- service was great! Everything was delicious, but the highlights for us were the meatballs and Yukon Gold potatoes!
Excellent Customer Service! The Food was Phenomenal!!I Highly recommended!
As usual everything was perfect. What more can I say???
This establishment never disappoints! Great food and excellent service! Thank you for another amazing meal!
Wow. That was Fantastic!! Total Immersion into the World of Service, delicious & artfully created food, & servers that were immaculate, unpretentious (although they wore well made suits), witty & kind!
My husband and I ordered “I don’t give a F!” And they showed us how they give an F!”
Fun. Fabulous. Flavor. Flair. Fantastic. unForgettable.
We felt like royalty and loved how they excel at treating everyone like that!! Definitely returning and recommending to all my friends & family!!
It was a phenomenal meal- great quantity/quality for the price. Super fun ambiance and all the staff were extremely friendly. Will definitely recommend!
The grilled smoked flavor made my ribeye steak taste delicious. We had the seafood tower for starters and that spoiled us immediately. This IS the restaurant you can’t miss when in Chicago. The candelabra on the table set the mood and the dessert was out of this world.
Had the seafood tower for one and it was amazing! Half a lobster , huge crab leg and shrimp scallops and clams. I love this place! The server was very attentive and will be back soon! The craft cocktails are also so yummy!!! Also love the candlelight .....
Fantastic service. Top two meals ever!!! craft cocktails, great ambiance and knowledgeable server made for a very special Easter celebration
The music in the dining area is too loud. Other than that our server Sean from Detroit was very engaging, nice that we were not rushed, had a memorable Easter Dinner - we will be back - your friends from San Diego
Fantastic service for a special night out. Nothing better than being greeted with a delicious welcome cocktail. Really appreciate the steakhouse classics with a twist. We ordered the shrimp rather than the full seafood tower, and it was just right as a starter for 2 of us. We took at least half of our entrees home as we wanted to have dessert. The sundae service was so much fun! Great service!
