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 had a great time at Maple & Ash. Our Server, Dan, and the service staff were excellent. They made us feel at home and were attentive to our wants. We had great fun in their photo booth as well.

We enjoyed the “I don’t give a f@!k sampler selection. It was amazing and gave us a taste our whole party will never forget. The scallops melted in our mouth, and the beef selections were succulent and amazing. The chef is a genius. Hands down the best dining experience I’ve had in years.

We’re not from Chicago. But we’re sure to go back to Maple & Ash the next time we’re in town.

We came here on a quick overnight trip from Boston for our anniversary. This place was fantastic! Food was amazing and service was great. We split the king crab and butter lettuce salad and each had a steak. Would definitely recommend.

This is my second time dining here and really wanted to share the experience with my family. My young son has a severe dairy allergy and I called weeks before the dinner to ensure that he could eat their fire roasted chicken. When I was told "no problem" I decided that we would keep the reservation. After we sit down and order drinks I then discuss the allergy with the server and inform him that we will have the chicken and fries for my son. He informed me that that's not possible because the chicken sits in butter before they roast it. There was no way they could make him one without butter. Going further, I then asked was there any chicken that he could have? He said "no". Even the fries have cheese on them. I was ready to get up and leave when he said he could ask the bar downstairs if they "could make him a chicken breast". At the end that is what they did but how sad is that! SO basically, great restaurant but if you have food allergies, DONT go there. They can't really accommodate you. Sorbet was "dairy free" but my son needed to take allergy meds after a few tastes.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. Came to celebrate a birthday - staff was extremely attentive, our waiter made amazing suggestions, the food was definitely worth writing home about (sea scallops, Mac & cheese, & the New York strip) we will 100% be back next time we’re in Chicago :)

The side orders and starters were excellent, the steaks were nice but nothing special. However the mark ups on the wine list were just ridiculous, no point having a great wine list if you're going to charge 4*cost price before adding service, very disappointing.

The service started out great, and took an unfortunate turn for the worst. We were rushed through cocktails, apps and main course. When done with main course, we tried to order after dinner cocktails to be told we had to get up from our table because there were people waiting - and we had a large party with a large bill/tip, for them to decline our request for after dinner drinks/dessert. Being rushed through a meal of this nature is unfortunately, as we have many options in the city. It was embarrassing as this was a business dinner, hosting management traveling out of town.

Maple and Ash was wonderful! They combine the fanfare and fancy if a steakhouse with a younger, less restrictive atmosphere. Everything from food, drinks, and service was great! My only issue was that the wait for our table was an additional 30 minutes past the reservation (we were told a big party lingered). For a Tuesday night, the extra wait seemed was a little frustrating, but the disappointing aspect was no one told us how much longer we would need to wait - my friend and I just would have used the bar sooner had we known. But, overall a wonderful evening!

I have been to Maple and Ash a few times – the food is excellent and the dinner service is very good! The bar experience is difficult to get a drink and there’s not enough seating. I asked for a reserved area for a group of 12 and they wouldn’t give it to me. I asked twice and had to fend for myself in the bar with a large group so I didn’t appreciate that

Delicious meal- the king crab and butter lettuce salad followed by a beautiful filet with lovely diane sauce of cognac and mushrooms. Husband had wedge salad (thought the ranch dressing an odd choice, but it was still loaded with blue cheese) and filet with grilled asparagus and broccolini. Veggies and beef were perfect. Beautiful inside, fancy and modern, excellent service. The wine list is nice but the cost of the meal took a star away. I accept a high rate for superior quality but it was still pretty overpriced. However, I would still recommend it as a special occasion splurge.

The "I don't give a f@ck" menu was a great call. Almost all the individual dishes we were eyeing ended up being included. The server really downplayed this option when we asked for details, describing it as "4 courses--3 savory and a dessert." In total we ended up with about 10 different dishes that represented some of the best items on the menu, including the wood fired mixed seafood platter.

The food and service were OUTSTANDING! My friend and I both opted for the “I don’t give a f*ck” which forced us to try dishes we might not otherwise have chosen. We sampled pastas, seafood, steak, and sides that were truly out of this world delicious. I can’t wait to go back!
