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.

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 food was okay. It wasn’t anything to rave about. Probably won’t be back to this steakhouse. The waitress was outstanding!!! Everyone in the restaurant was very nice and very helpful. I hate to give the food a bad rating . Maybe I should have tried something else? I don’t know.

GT Prime checks all the boxes for a modern steakhouse - great cocktails, accessible wine list, and a marvelous menu! Try the rib-eye...it's fantastic!

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.

The team at GT Prime are in a class of their own. Food is always on point, service is phenomenal, Mike D is a human encyclopedia of perfectly cooked meats and seafood. Definitely get the Mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts. You will not regret it.

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!

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!

We waited an hour for our table, with a reservation, which was unacceptable. They had every opportunity to comp one of our glasses of champagne or make it up to us somehow, but didn’t. That’s not something that would happen at Gibson’s. Ambience was beautiful, as was our table. Drinks were good, but the martinis were small. For what we paid, I expected a larger, chilled glass (again, points for Gibson’s here). Beef tartare was great, wedge salad was decent. Both of our steaks were slightly over-cooked - more medium than medium rare. Asparagus left something to be desired. Mushrooms were excellent. Service was mediocre - too long of a wait between the tartare and salad course, then by the time we were done and wanted to finish the evening in the bar with a drink, it was after 11 and they were closing and sort of shooed us out. We waited an hour for our table - least they could have done was allowed us to wait. We will try CHICAGO Cut or elsewhere next time.

Thank you to our waiter Matt for helping make our dinner such a wonderful one for Dino and myself at GT Prime Steakhouse It was a perfect evening for us both. My advice for everyone is when you’re hungry and are in doubt just order everything that sounds good to you and share it. We started with #lobstersalad #pastabolgnese #octopus for our first course. Main course of #rackoflamb #boneinfilet #sweetcreamcorn #mashedpotatoes #brusselsprouts and for dessert we went Sweet & Savory with a #rusticcheeseplatter and #chocolatecake I ordered the chocolate cake because I loved the gold rim plate #presentationiseverything and it was perfect. Whenever we get together we love going to GT’s and spending hours catching up! It was a perfect holiday gift! It’s great for a special occasion or date night or just one of those nights when you’re just craving a great dinner! Outstanding!

We were dining to celebrate my friends birthday and the whole meal felt rushed. They took our meal plates away before asking, fries were still in the containers and my friend still had a piece of steak on her plate. You should always ask someone if they are finished before clearing their plate. Same thing for dessert, taken away before we were done at that point is was just funny they the servers were not even picking up how annoyed we were with the rushed service. The Clorox wipes to clean the table were also unappetizing. Great ambiance and food but please work on your hospitality.

Local resident to GT Prime. 3rd Trip in last year. I love the bar and interior. Really nice vibe. Waiter was spot on with service though at times almost a bit too descriptive and could be more relaxed. The steaks at GT are as good as anyone else’s in this city. Sides were also outstanding. My criticism would be the vegetarian in my family order their pasta and it was fair to good. I want to go back for their happy hour at the bar. Great bar tender and very knowledgeable
