It was my first time here and I really liked it. I was impressed with the variety of dishes on the menu. It was great to see that you didn't have to pay $50 for each meal. We were a party of 3 and we tried a couple of appetizers to share and each ordered dinner. Everything was very good and the service was quite good.

The crab cakes and filets were excellent. The special prime rib was raw rather than medium rare - My dog like the residuals. The salad (lettuce wedge)was a zero.

Waiters of course are unbelievable, couldn't be better.
I'm a big prime rib fan and this one didn't cut it. My wives filet was very good (unfortunately she cooks her's, so that''s puppy leftovers) and I've had that before and couldn't complain.

I kind of wish we would have just sat at the windows at the bar like I did last time, it takes a little bit off the formal at a formal sort of place ;)

A little uneven on this visit. Drinks were made wrong. Shrimp cocktail kind of smelly. The steak was great. The desert was really good. The service was pleasant but not really helpful. A new norm? Still, I love the ambiance and the sports Football and Poker which were on during dinner. Do they need a professional bartender? It could be a bar scene.

Very disappointed. We had a party of 6 on a Sunday early evening. I attempted to order the Ribeye and was informed it was not available. Now the restaurant wasn't even half full and they were already out of one of three steak varieties offered on the menu. I ordered the Delmonaco and it arrived a little over done. I see no reason to travel to this location in the future when I can go the Ruth Chris or Morton's and get the steak I want and prepared the way I ordered.

The food was top notch, the service was the same if not better. Enjoyed the evening as a quick night out for a date with wife. Glad we picked MJ’s in Oakbrook. Apps were perfect, steaks were as good as steaks can get. Hung out at bar, bar tender was fun and creative. Highly recommend this restaurant, will be back soon.
Thank you.

(Sigh) I had high expectations. Perhaps, that was where I went wrong. I’d heard good things about the restaurant so I thought it’d be a safe bet. I made a reservation for two and I arrived before the other party. When I spoke with the host he confirmed my reservation but had to go and alert someone to prepare the table. At this point I’m standing there acting as if I’m impressed with the pictures on the room divider so I don’t stand there staring at everyone in the bar area. My waiter was kind and pleasant enough when I was seated and took my order for bread (delicious, btw) while I waited for my guest who arrived before the bread came back. When the waiter came back we ordered. I selected the calamari (greasy & tough) and she had the French onion soup (per her, it was ok). The waiter served us our drinks a coke and Perrier which he poured into a very dirty glass which I noticed after the initial sip. When I pointed it out to him he returned with a clean glass but not a new bottle of water and most of the first bottle was in the dirty glass. After the dirty glass situation he wasn’t as pleasant as before towards me but extremely/overtly pleasant to my friend. No biggie right? I’m here to eat! We ordered our entrees and when they arrived they both looked great but her fries were oily and flat and my steak was runny with grease. The mashed potatoes were great thanks to them being in a separate dish from my main plate but the asparagus was... (yes) greasy too. Not the best dining experience I’ve had for the price. The dining area was noisy while the bar area was perhaps the better 1/2 of the restaurant. Unfortunately, I won’t know because I doubt that I’ll ever return. Everyone keeps saying how the downtown location is so nice. Oak Brook, not so much.

Went for lunch. Not greeted in a positive manner by hostess. Had Monday burger special which comes with a $3 beer which was not specified on the menu or explained by the server as to limitations. I was charged full price as my choice was not part of the “special.” Restaurant has a limited number of beer and wine by the glass. They didn’t have two beers on the menu and the wine a member of our party wanted.

The steak here is unbelievable! I would have given a 5 Star overall rating but the service was slow. We got there at 5:30 and did t get out food until almost 7pm. With a little one I would have thought they would have sped things up a bit.

The food was good, service was terrible. The first dirty martini I ordered came tasting like licorice. Clearly the bartender had not cleaned the shaker. The manager brought a fresh one but did not take it or anything off the bill. The food was fine, great steak, Mac and cheese and prime rib. After dinner our server disappeared. It took about 55 minutes from the time they cleared our plates till we left. It was my birthday, they never asked despite me including it in my reservation, and didn’t acknowledge it, we were annoyed so we didn’t mention it, left 15% tip and left.

Hubby and I went here for our 18th wedding anniversary and we were very disappointed. Despite 7pm reservations, there were 2 noisy, crying babies in our section leaving romance out the window. Our server was good but obviously overwhelmed due to short staff (on a Saturday night)? Portions very small and came out cold for the price. We ordered the famed 23 layer cake for dessert and they didn't even bother to write "happy anniversary" on our plate. Every other restaurant we have dined at to celebrate our yearly anniversary does that and more when your spending this type of money. The most acknowledgement we had was our server saying 'happy anniversary' as we paid the check and left. Very underwhelming experience and we will go back to our usual romantic spot downtown next year. It will be a long time before we plan on eating here again and certainly do not recommend it for a special occasion.

It was very noisy. We had a good (not great but not bad) server. I think her name might have been Cassandra . She was alright. We thought the serving of calamari was VERY small compared to other area restaurants......especially for 4 as an appetizer. Whitefish was DELICIOUS !!!

The food and service were both excellent. They treated us like we were regulars there and it was our first time dining there!! Gregorio was an excellent server and both the manager and owner came to our table. We would highly recommend Michael Jordan's restaurant in Oak Brook and will now be regular customers.
