This is my 2nd time dining here and I must say this experience was more memorable than the last. Most of the credit goes to Johnny, our server. He immediately made us feel welcome and we remained a priority, even during a busy time. The food was delicious too. We both enjoyed the wedge salad, the rather large, but yummy meatball, and the petite filet mignon. The mac and cheese went fast; it’s a must-have because of the aged cheddar. I also received a pleasant surprise after asking the staff to celebrate my bestie’s birthday with a small dessert. They brought her a plate along with one for me, as it’s visibly noticeable that I’m expecting :) Again, our girls’ night out was great because of our experience here. We’ll be back soon!

I hadn’t heard of this steakhouse, so I wanted to take my friend there for her bday.

I have no idea why the hostess would seat two single girls upstairs in a private area much more conducive to couples.

There was no flair to the ambiance of this establishment from an upper level perspective.

As for the the food, it was not worthy in presentation or price. A very disappointing experience from many layers.

With prices comparable to Gibson’s, STK, and Maple, this establishment cannot compare in quality of food.

The server was very kind and knew about the food preparation and ingredients. He was the highlight of the dinner.

We will not be back or recommend this steakhouse to our friends.

Love this restaurant. It was better than my first experience 2 years ago. Loved the cut of meat, NY Strip prime. The background music was a little odd though. Service was top notch.

Great experience for one of our first times eating indoor in over 1 yr. We sat at a high top in the bar - very comfortable. Service was good but not hovering. I had a great glass (or two) of Tempranillo and my husband had a few beers. We got the wedge salad, the pork chop, and the branzino (same preparation as the salmon I'd loved in the past but just with different fish and I still loved it). I felt the restaurant was very clean and safe. I'd definitely recommend this place for a nice dinner out.

Both meals terribly overcooked. Also sub par in both presentation and taste.

Very disappointing in general.

Went for special occasion. Was given water and a drink when I ordered. Never saw the waiter again until he brought the check. Steak was heavily (I’d say overly) salted. Was tough to eat with empty glasses. The food was good but it wasn’t a great experience to be ignored the entire evening. Not keeping a water glass full or checking on a the comfort of a guest is the mark of poor sense of service and hospitality.

I'm a veg/pescatarian. My dining partner and I wanted to do a Restaurant Week meal. After we were seated, we were informed that the RW menu was only available to go. I mean, why even post it online. Felt very mislead. I was a fan of this chef's fish location, but this really was annoying and an ethically challenged choice to make.

If you don't want to truly participate in RW....then just don't do it.

Great customer service! I ordered Vaca Vieja and it came out stiff, which is disappointing since I look forward to a delicious meat. My friend’s filet mignon came out better than mine. The mac n cheese and brussel sprouts were delicious.

Johnny, our waiter was fantastic. He was very attentive and made the experience all the more enjoyable. The food was excellent for the price. We ordered the beef tartare as a starter, a burger and the steak frites. Steak was cooked to perfection and very filling. 10/10 for everything!

Johnny provided outstanding service! The food was delicious, but the whole experience was more enjoyable because of his knowledge of the menu, humor and attention. The Snake River Wagyu Strip Steak was fabulous, as was the Bison tenderloin. Would definitely return!

Steak was very salty. Server never checked to see if our entrees were ok and if we needed anything. Also never refilled our wine glass after the first pour. We realize the tough times restaurants have experienced the last year but it was surprising they they charged us a fee on our bill for their employees health insurance. I can understand fees for their COVID expenses as a temporary charge but do not feel a customer should pay for their employees benefits.

We were very much looking forward to our reservation but were very disappointed in our overall experience. We've been looking to try GT Prime for quite some time & when we saw they were participating in Restaurant Week, we quickly snagged a reservation. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told the Restaurant Week menu wasn't available for dine-in, delivery/takeout only which was not clearly indicated on the Restaurant Week menu on the Restaurant Week website. Not a huge deal breaker as there really wasn't a value in the Restaurant week menu, you only save roughly $10 on your meal.

When it came to ordering our drinks, 3 of the 4 people in the group ordered a GT Old Fashioned which was $14, however they asked to switch the whiskey to Buffalo Trace which we assumed was going to be a bit of an up-charge for the spirit swap out. When we received the bill, we saw the spirit swap out more than DOUBLED the drink price to $31 for an Old Fashioned. When we asked our waiter, he very rudely said that the cost of a glass of Buffalo Trace was $28 and to make it an Old Fashioned was another $3. However we didn't order a single glass of Buffalo Trace asking to make it an Old Fashioned, we ordered an Old Fashioned and asked to swap out the spirit. A bottle of Buffalo Trace retails for $24.99, so the drink alone was more than the price of us buying a bottle from the liquor store. We ended up paying $217 for 7 Old Fashioneds which is comparable to buying 8.5 bottles of Buffalo Trace from the liquor store. Also when we asked for the spirit swap out we were never told that would more than DOUBLE the price of the drink.

Needless to say after being price gouged during a pandemic, we will not return. We had friends who asked us of our experience as they wanted to try it as well and we have discouraged them from coming unless they are looking to be price gouged; there are plenty of other "good" steakhouses in the city or burbs that I would go back to over GT Prime.

Made last minute reservation for this place and the food and service was amazing! I had the pork chops with macaroni and my partner had the steak and mashed potatoes. There’s a 90 minute occupation limit so just enough time to have good convo over drinks and food. I definitely would recommend GT Prime for any romantic encounter.

Overall, very disappointed with both the service we received as well as the quality of food. Finding our server was very difficult and we had to ask for items multiple times before we would receive them. The food was very disappointing in both flavor and quality. The wedge salad was not a wedge but rather, a thin slice from a iceberg head. The dressing was very runny and lacked the strong flavor you should have with a blue cheese. My filet mignon (cooked rare as requested) was sadly not a quality cut of meat. A filet should melt in your mouth, but I found myself struggling to chew it. It also sadly lacked any flavor that you should be gettin
