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.

We spent our wedding anniversary here and other than the fact we probably had the worst table in the entire restaurant (directly in front of the kitchen with loads of staff traffic), we had a perfect evening. We will return! (And will request better searing!)

I'm 20 years old and thought this restaurant had a very cool vibe. However, my father is hard of hearing and it was very loud and hard to carry on a conversation with him. He did not enjoy the restaurant on the same level as I did.

Hands down one of the best places in Chicago! Walker was our server and he was OUTSTANDING - MY GUY! We're moving to PHX, but he let us know they're opening a place in Scottsdale - we'll be there! Oh, and if you don't get the bacon - you're not living!

Fantastic evening! From the greeting with a cocktail compliments of the house to the wonderful showmanship of bananas Foster a delightful experience. The steaks are superb and the seafood delicious. The only issue I have is the noise level, the ambient soundtrack in particular was quite loud and was a challenge to conversation at our table of five.

Raymond was amazing! Was celebrating a birthday and they really made it feel special.

Complimentary amuse bouche cocktails & apps were served when we got there. They also had a menu printed with “happy birthday” and the birthday boys name AND our server, Raymond, brought shots at the end for us.

Great night out, overall.

The only word I've got for this place is swanky. From the first moment you come through the bar downstairs, you get the feeling it's a bit exclusive. The service was absolutely what I want every higher end restaurant to be, friendly and not pretentious. As far as menu, we ordered a little bit of everything, but couldn't quite pull the trigger on the I Don't Give a F*ck option. The scallops, maple bacon, filet mignon, mac and cheese, and small bites to start were all amazing. We finished our meal with the build your own sundae bar. I had to talk my husband into this because normally he is not down for DIY at a restaurant. He wants to be dazzled. Well folks, this thing is dazzling. 12 different options to pile on top of some delicious ice cream and one raspberry sorbet. Seriously, don't pass this option up. Also, finish the pot of peanut butter, the cookie crumbs, and the brittle, you won't be sorry. We're already planning a grand return to test drive that I Don't Give a F*ck menu item.

Mason, our waiter, made it a phenomenal experience. We had a ton of fun with the IDGAF (see the menu). The food was incredible with one exception. When the beef course came out they had a halibut dish for my wife since she doesn’t eat red meat and it was cooked very nicely, but had set too long and was cool. The flavors, presentation, selections were excellent. Can’t recommend this highly enough if you want to celebrate or have a really fun experience with friends.

They couldn’t get us all the way through the dessert course in time for us to make our show so Mason made us an 11 pm reservation to come back after the show and have the dessert course and drinks. We were glad we came back.

I had high expectations for Maple & Ash and they far exceeded them! It was my friends bachelorette weekend and they gave us complimentary shots as well as a menu for her to take home that said, "Happy Bachelorette! You're getting married!" It was a huge surprise and she LOVED it. The food was incredible and the service was fantastic. Our waiter even made sure he got the perfect picture of us. I could not have asked for a better experience!

This place is more about the ambience than the food. The steaks seem to be marbled with marbles. Seasoning was more a must than an option. But if making the sceeen, mahn, is more your thing, then by all means, show up here. And be on a diet.

Very disappointing bone-in ribeye for $68. I can get as good or better
