We met another couple here for a nice dinner before a comedy show. The experience was absolutely awful. The food was pretty good, but the service soon made me forget how good the food was. We waited 15-20 minutes for our first round of cocktails. They brought a large bottle mineral water without any glasses. They brought out the main course before bringing out the soup we ordered. They brought my boyfriend's steak to the table, set it down, and asked to take it back after a couple of minutes, so that they could bring out all of our food together. The most bizarre experience I have ever witnessed at a steakhouse. The manager asked about our experience and we told her, she apologized and said our dessert is on the house. We ordered two desserts to split among 4 of us (which we would not have even ordered had they not said it was on them). Then they only decided to only comp one of the desserts. Worst experience ever. DO NOT GO HERE!

We went there before a show. The food was very good. I had a baked Salmon dish that was excellent. My husband had a blackened fish dish that was good but the blackening spice had salt in it which he did not care for. All in all a nice meal and we would return. Nice variety of wine too

My husband and I decided to eat here for dinner on Valentine's Day! We left our car with the valet. Once, we arrived the hostess seated us. However, we were near the edge of the staircase and I asked if we could be seated somewhere else and she was able to accommodate us after she checked the computer. We were very pleased. with our new table. Our server came over not too long afterwards and he asked for our drinks and we proceeded to provide him with our entrees for the evening. I am glad we did because it took a while for the salads to come out. The food was very tasty and the portions were the right size. Between the two of us we had a steak entree and the stuffed salmon. We enjoyed dinner, but had to wait a little while for our waiter. That is why one star was taken away for service. It didn't seem very busy, but who knows why he was missing at times. Overall, the food and price were reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant, and in particular this location to others.

Early seating for Valentine's Day pre-theater although we were 40 minutes early, it was not busy, and we were shown to our table promptly. Fabulous unrushed dining experience! Server very knowledgeable of menu items and preparations; quality of food consistent with expectations for this above average establishment.

Round Table for 6 in the back was perfect for our business meeting. Service was very good, everyone enjoyed the food. We were able to take our time and had no issues with the hearing one another.

M&S's 2-course lunch options ROCK - choice of a couple of appetizers (i chose a terrific walnut & greens salad) and one of three entrees. i had an OMG northland sauteed salmon that was PLENTIFUL and beautiful and so tasty ... lunch $16. REALLY? Found my new "regular" spot for a "nice lunch". Our server, Yancy, was amazing!

Overall, I think this restaurant is what you would expect from a chain restaurant. It is definitely not a high-end steakhouse, though the decoration on the inside is quite nice and the restaurant is comfortable. If you're trying to take a bigger group of friends out, it would certainly be more affordable than many other restaurants in the loop or River North. So overall, it fills a need for moderately priced food in the neighborhood.

Service overall was poor. Certainly feel they could have done a much better job for me the day I was there. A large table of customers next to me seemed to get better service than me by the same waitress. Something about me being by myself just made her ignore me? Main entree came out when I was halfway done with my salad.

Ordered from the Restaurant week menu. I gave the restaurant 3/5 stars for value, which definitely was helped by the special menu. Ordering straight off the regular menu, I probably would have given it a 2/5 as the prices are a bit high for the quality of the food. That being said, I really enjoyed the salad that came as part of my meal. The steak was bland and chewy, and it lacked the nice grilled flavor you want from a steakhouse. The portion for the main meal was adequate for the price. Dessert was tasty but not especially memorable.

I ordered a bone in ribeye steak, it was horrible, the flavor was awful, there was too much fat on the selection I was given, they should remove steak from the menu or hire a Chef that takes pride in cooking because the chef cooking the night my family and I dined in sure didn't, he/she should be ashamed. On another note our server, Mike, was great.
