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.

The service was great, Thanks to Joe. He came ready with some fantastic recommendations. The Salmon, Oysters Rockefeller, and Shrimp Mac & Cheese were delicious!

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.

My husband and I were in for dinner about a year ago, and we were not impressed by the meal. I decided we would try again because we were in the mood for fish. We had dinner Saturday night and it was FANTASTIC! We had the Ahi Tuna and Seabass and wow! Everything was so good! We cant wait to go back!

There was a party of 25 that took away from our service. Drinks and food took forever. I ordered the filet medium but it came out medium well and dry.

I went with a group of friends during Restaurant Week in Chicago. The special “Restaurant Week” menu was so limited that it bordered on bait and switch. That menu was so limited that most of this order off the regular, full price menu.

That being said, the food we ordered was good; prepared well, great flavor.

The wait staff was friendly and professional, but appeared to be understaffed. We waited for dinner and drinks longer than normal for this level of restaurant.

Based on all this, I would conclude that it has good staff but poor management. based on all this, I would conclude that it has good staff but poor management

Ate here with friends on a Friday after work for Restaurant Week. The $33 prix fixe has nice choices, and they did not skimp on either food quality or their excellent service

The food was not as good as it has been in the past. We felt we were not served as well for being a part of the restaurant week menu. Isn’t the point of restaurant week to showcase your best foods?

Clam chowder soup is what always brings us back to this restaurant. I think it is the best in Chicago. The staff is very attentive. Food is reliably good. We regularly go to the Goodman Theatre. This is a great option before the show. Only about 2 blocks away.

It was a very excellent experience. The waiter and waitress were very nice & pleasant. They made my friend feel very special by providing beautiful cake with candle.
