What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Maple & Ash sits in the middle of the Chicago steakhouse Venn diagram. It’s both new-school and old.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Went here to celebrate a business deal closing. It was a great date night with my wife, we had the grilled seafood tower appetizer which is excellent (cooked over hardwood with a chili oil and garlic drizzle), split the 20 oz bone in ribeye and enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and desert. We loved the creamed spinach as well. Staff was attentive and skilled, and food done to perfection. Bustling location, we talked with several other tables and everyone seemed to be having a great time on a Thursday night. Expensive, but great for a special occasion.

Pretty disappointed. The server was excellent and that’s about all I can say that’s positive. The staff at the front desk were horribly rude and wouldn’t seat us because part of our party was missing. I get it but our reservation was at 530 not prime time. She made it seem like an absolutely horrible inconvenience. The waiter then dropped a plate on our table which ended up landing on a couple wine glasses that broke and glass went all over us. He cleaned it up but that was the end of that. When it came to get the bill they didn’t even offer us a discount for getting glass over us. I loved the restaurant but I won’t be coming back. Very sad. And very unhappy.

With friends on special trip wanting special dining experience. Food and service were awesome!!! We did not care for the loud music. We’re a little old school and like softer ambience.

So we came for our anniversary and nothing was said to us once from our host or our waiter about wishing us a happy anniversary.. waiter did not seem very into his job. We had Alex 3rd he was supposed to take off half of our dessert price off of our bill and claimed he did.. we saw the new bill which price was off and he still charged full price.( did he lie to us?) now that I have checked my card he did not take anything off. we paid full price.. very upsetting because this was supposed to be a special day for us.

Birthday. Not all the things came out at once for dinner. I had to wait and my steak was half gone but the time the onions were ready. Wine was refilled only once and then finally I filled the tables. Felt like the staff was distracted after being seated for 25mins. Server was great.

Delicious food, great atmosphere, good location. The service was a little slow, but I think that's because you are supposed to slow down here, which we are not great at.

Steak and wine were both good. Octopus app and the sides were really disappointing. Octopus just wasn't appealing in presentation or taste. We ordered creamed spinach and mushrooms. Both were heavily sauced (as was halibut) and unnecessarily so. Very rich and just not good. Overall very disappointing experience. This was our 3rd time, and not returning anytime soon. We are local and live down the street, so plenty of other options for good steak in the area.

Celebrating our anniversary. We got a call that afternoon asking us for our names and how long we have been married, so we thought we were getting something special - a decorated dessert, maybe? Instead, we got our table 45 minutes late and not even the table we had requested - surprise :(
Very noisy, bit obnoxious crowd. Food was very good.
