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.

Without a doubt, one of the best meals in Chicago. Every aspect of food was outstanding. Experiencing steaks grilled over wood fire is a must.

Food was a bit disappointing (chicken was dry, tuna tartare pretty bland in flavor, filet was good but nothing outstanding). Service and atmosphere were on point!

The decor is beautiful! The music is understated and great background setting. I sat at the bar and the bartenders were both attentive and engaging. Very knowledgeable about their craft. Excellent selection of spirits and wines. I ordered a Martina, their rotating cocktail. It is a gin based Manhattan. It was handcrafted well. The happy hour has great reduced priced wines by the glass as well as some tasty bites including a cheese plate. My main course I ordered the Risotto with black truffle. It might have been a bit too al dente for my personal taste but was enjoyable. I also enjoyed the Butternut Squash side. It had maple butter, pine nuts, burrata and topped with balsamic pearls. It is highly recommended for cooler weather. The manager Rami stopped by to check on how everything was. Overall, a great dining experience.

I always eat steak for my birthday and have been to most of the popular 4-5 star Steakhouses in Chicago hut decided to try something new and GT Prime is definitely tied for first place! Filet had delicious flavor and tenderness, perfectly crispy crust. The A2 and horseradish sauce were amazing though not needed because the steak is so good all by itself. All three of us got the filet, shared asparagus and corn and not a drop was left. The sides were delicious and cooked perfect, not over done, not too much sauce. We ate at the bar and the bar staff was friendly and attentive, even the grill cook said hello, manager checked on us, perfect experience! I will be back!!

Due to a disease I have that is caused by food allergies, I'm not a foodie. But this place is the best. Not only did they accommodate my food allergies, but the food tasted amazing. I had the grilled octopus, salmon and asparagus prepared like the brussel sprouts minus the butter. Our serve was Johnny and he was great. He's professional, attentive and funny. Can't wait to go back.

The service was good & the atmosphere pleasant. The side dish & salad was good, however the main dish , the steak which should have been good.... especially with high price..... was not very good. It was SO SALTY that my tongue was actually sore after eating it. We should have sent it back but I didn’t want to ruin our evening by creating a negative atmosphere. I doubt I would go back.

Food was just okay. I ordered the GT Burger medium well and it was so rare I couldn’t eat it. My husband ordered filet and he said it was just okay. Nothing great. So he ate my burger. 😉 Server was attentive and nice. Got our drink order wrong first time but was trying hard. Wouldn’t plan to go back. Beautiful room.

It was my father's 61st birthday and I decided to surprise him with a set dinner at GT Prime. I called in advance to let the restaurant staff know that it was birthday and they sent out a beautiful dessert as well as so many happy birthdays from the staff. It made my father feel so special and wonderful! I was so happy and impressed with the staff and their kindly and excellent service! I absolutely will make sure more special occasions in my life will be celebrated at GT Prime !

Amazing food. Great service.
Our server spoke a little too quickly and gave us a lot of information in a short amount of time, the only draw back. The food was amazing - everything was exquisite and wonderful. The appetizers were great to share and the steaks were so good!!! A great place to eat.

Decorations were great. Service was great. Tables are barely a foot apart. No privacy with your significant other. You could whisper and it would be heard easily by the people next to you. Food was extra salty. I wouldn’t recommend this place for dinner. For drinks, yes.

Enjoyed drinks and dinner with my husband and 3mo son. Staff was very kind and conscientious with us having our child (mind we had. 5pm dinner). Meal was spaced out well and great service. Dinner was done as ordered - rare bone in filet and medium rare filet. Side of mushrooms and corn were great - corn with peppers was the crowd favorite. Apps were gem salad and crab / avocado salad - both standard good and would order again. Looking forward to coming back! Thanks for making our first night out with our little one successful! A+ for parking staff who kept our car out front to make it easy to depart w/out wait time.

- parents - no changing table in bathrooms so bring a portable pad :-)

Had dinner with friends. The decor of the place is very nice, modern, and quiet. The service was good and well timed. The food was above average, but not outstanding. Enjoyed bone marrow, risotto, and steak. I ordered American wagyu, but got NY strip - the bill was correct, but this was a more heavy steak than I wanted. Overall a nice experience.
