What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

GT Prime feels your typical steakhouse in River North, but it serves a lot more than just steak. That’s why we like it.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

We came into the experience with high expectations and felt that everything went above and beyond. Outstanding food, coupled with first rate service and a well crafted wine list delivered a memorable experience.

I brought my daughters here for their birthdays. We came here one other time and absolutely loved everything. This time the food quality wasn’t the same unfortunately. My daughter is allergic to nuts, which we stated at the beginning of the meal, and they brought a dessert that contained nuts so she couldn’t eat it. It was complimentary, which was very nice, but inedible at our table.

We went for my boyfriend’s birthday, and they made it so special for him! From writing Happy Birthday on his menu, to bringing champagne & a birthday dessert (with a candle) for no charge, they truly went above and beyond. Plus the food & drinks were absolutely delicious!! Great service & great place for any type of occasion!!

We went for restaurant week and the options were perfect for what I like. My striploin was a little undercooked for medium so I sent it back for them to put in for a couple more minutes and it came back out just fine. All the other food was excellent. Service was a great. Music was a bit loud in a good way. They were playing hip hop that night, which I really enjoyed.

Steak was a bit bland. Overall, the service was excellent. For a steakhouse charging those prices the food should be more of a wow factor.

It was good, but not great.

This was our first visit. Beautiful restaurant and attentive staff. We were sat by the window that had a significant draft. Didn’t realize how cold it was in time to move. The food was very good but pricey for the portion. With so many other good steakhouse options in the city we will not likely be back.

Great restaurant. Service was excellent. Wait staff came regularly to refill water and be sure we were ok. Filet and rib eye were cooked perfectly as we ordered them. Sides were awesome. And, the Valet even had our car ready before we even went outside to give him our ticket. Remarkable! There are many good steakhouses in Chicago, but this one is high on the list.

very disappointing experience........we made out reservations at least a month in advance, and when we arrived we were seated upstairs away from the main scene, we asked to change tables and said they could not accommodate us.....we were a party of 4. Service was fair, we ordered 2 french onion soups and they forgot the second and when it came the first then was cold.......everything else was good, but we did not like where we were sitting and for the amount of money we spent $264 per couple NOT worth it!!!!!!

The food was not up to par with the prices charged. The pork belly on the salad was overcooked, dry, and tough. One of the filet's ordered was overcooked as well. They did cook a new filet but it was tough. For the prices charged these flaws were unacceptable. Service was excellent.

We went for restaurant week. Service was great as usual and we love the ambiance. We ordered the sirloin special which was excellent, and the branzino. It was perfectly crispy and delicious. We added sides of Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes which were excellent. Desserts were delicious!

Went to GT Prime for the first time during Restaurant Week. We were underwhelmed with the menu to be honest. Wedge Bacon Blue Cheese salad? Couldn't be more ordinary. There are dozens of other great places to choose from. I wish they would have been a little more creative here.

I came for restaurant week with some friends and was slightly underwhelmed by the quality of the steaks. The bread was amazing. I got a wedge salad that was good. My steak was not the best which is why I feel like I need to rate the restaurant so high. If it's a steak house and they are priding themselves on steak I did not think it was worth it. The sides were good but a little pricey. We got mashed potatoes with and without truffles and the one with truffles was double the price and that was not told to use. The corn and peppers are a must those were by far my favorite side. The dessert was fine but overall I am not dying to go back.

A $24 crab and avocado appetizer shouldn’t taste like a sardine dipped into a jar of Hellman’s mayo topped with store bought, packaged guacamole. The rest of the meal was a similar experience. Pretty good butter and rolls though.

The night I was there was slow, few tables were filled. Three of us were there to celebrate a birthday. It took an unusually long time to get our cocktails. We had to ask twice about when we would be served. One was wrong and had to be remade, the bloody Mary was the last to arrive. Salads were good but steaks were mediocre, french fries were fabulous. Dessert was a delicious chocolate cake. I would not return due to service.

Great food, atmosphere, and very attentive staff. Our server chatted with us throughout the meal as we interacted with him, but in no way detracted from our experience. He was prompt in every regard and enhanced our fun double date. I had never had bone marrow before, much less turned the bone into a whisky luge, nor tried octopus prepared differently than fried. While both were delicious, the real star was Carnivore. I've never had such tender meat. The knives, while cool resembling a kukri, weren't needed. Would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a quality meal and perfect service!

The ambiance here is spot on, perfect, exactly what I’m looking for in an expensive meal. The food however was really forgettable. If you like fancy for the sake of fancy, which I do, this is a great spot. If you’re looking for a top tier meal, this is not it. Would be great for a date, there seemed to be quite a few happening around us!

It was a special evening for me. My girlfriend and I were in town from LA for my 24th birthday. We walked in and got seated by the hostess, she handed me the menu and it said “happy birthday khan” which was super cool.

To start we ordered the fresh baked bread + jumbo shrimp which was awesome. Followed by the Australian wagyu, and the Prime burger. Overall everything was great. If I’m ever in Chicago again, I’ll forsure stop by!
