    We loved our first experience here and will be sure to come back! This is a real Chicago gem! The restaurant week menu was great-we loved everything. Service was on point and our server got everything right but he was very serious and no nonsense.

    The only real problem I had was with the obnoxious texts from Open Table. One half an hour before the reservation I got a text implying that I needed to check in immediately as the table was ready. I don’t mind a reminder or a inquiry as whether I still think we will be on time, but the tone of this text was all wrong. It appeared from the text that I was considered late already. I called to make sure the reservation had been entered properly.

    My husband and I celebrated my mother’s birthday, who was visiting from out of town with my father. It was fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The best dirty martini I’ve ever had and the filet mignon was perfectly cooked to medium rare. The manager stopped by our table after the first few bites of food and staff went the extra mile by providing a complimentary dessert for my mother. Fantastic experience!

    Service great and food was delicious. We would definitely come back. Only issue was there was a family with the crying baby. From the time the table arrived to the time we left (approximately 30) the baby screamed. The manager even tried to see if there was something he could do but the parents should have taken the baby outside not to disrupt the other guests. The staffed handled it well.

    The service was excellent. The steak was delicious, cooked perfectly. The garbage salad was soggy, like it was sitting in dressing all day. The turtle cheesecake tasted like it was store bought from a grocery store. But mainly place feels tired, it doesn’t give the vibe of an old fashioned steak house, more like a place that hasn’t been updated since it opened.

    Fantastic waiter who took good care of us. We ordered from the Restaurant Week specials and were pleased with our choices: calamari, grilled chicken breast with peppers, tiramisu….all were delicious. Thank you for a wonderful luncheon experience.

    This was the best place to get together with a new friend. I knew the food and the service would be superb since I’d tried it out for myself two days prior. I ordered again: the polenta con porcini and the affogato. That cheesecake is not great. However, the tiramisu is the truth. Pasta and chicken dishes are the winners so far after my two visits. Great drinks too. There is a slight old musty smell upon entering which I attribute to the building or the carpet. Very clean.
