Primal Cut Steakhouse
WE WILL Open SUNDAY DECEMBER 15 AT 2;00 NO BLOODY MARY BAR
One of my favorite places to eat! Wonderful staff, great food, and very clean!
Great steaks chops and seafood. Cooked to perfection. Sides feed 2.
Our server was very friendly and attentive. Patricia definitely made the experience a pleasant one. Had a wonderful birthday dinner.
Way too loud the servers had to yell to even talk to us. We didnt e en stay to eat so I just gave the food 5 stars. I'm sure the food was good but the environment was loud and awful.
Just so-so. The steak was definitely not the star of the show. And any steakhouse should make excellent cocktails. The old fashioned and manhattan were both sub-par. Ambiance is great -- nice-looking place. Probably won't be back.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion!
Service was excellent. Steak was great but the lobster was over cooked , kind of rubbery.
I’ll come back just won’t waste my money on surf and turf
Three of us dined there on 10/9/19. This is located in the former Bogarts restaurant in downtown Tinley building but all redone and pretty inside. The bar is very nice. My ONLY complaint is the darkness. It was SO DARK inside. If they turned up the lights just a smidge they would still have the ambiance they are going for but you may be able to SEE people and the menu. Honestly very dark, too dark. Maybe just that one night, not sure. They have amazing wine and food specials Monday through Thursday like free wine, half-price wine, food specials. My filet was perfected medium rare and was delicious. Overall nice place! Just dark. I should have said something to the manager; maybe someone just turned the lights down too low???!
Food was quite tasty; I had a filet that was delicious.
The waitress did not give use hear full attention. I had to stop the waitress to order drinks.
Really like this place! Great steaks, chops, potato sides. Our waiter Michelle excellent!
The ambience and service were exceptional. The $48 22oz ribeye was cooked (med rare) as requested but was a very tough cut for a rib eye.
Had a 5:00 reservation on Friday to avoid the crowds. Got seated right away at a booth in the bar. They offer nice privacy and are comfortable. The bartender/server was great-frequently checking on us and offering input when asked. Enjoyed the cajun scallops as an appetizer-cooked well with a nice spice. The crab bisque was delicious and hot with a good amount of crab. Salad presented beautifully with great blue cheese dressing. Trio medallions cooked perfect with the au gratin potatoes which are sinfully good-rich and large enough for at least two. Crab stuffed shrimp were a little overcooked but still had good flavor.
The wine list is broad with some really nice offerings but be prepared to get a bottle as there's limited 'by the glass' choices.
A neighborhood gem for the south suburbs!
The service was very good. Food had too much salt. Steaks were average but seemed salty. Crab soup was very creamy but too salty and had very little crab in it. Salad was very fresh but on the small side. Scallop appetizer had only 3 scallops on it. They were blackened , tasted ok but had too much salt. Dinner would have been better with less salt on almost everything.
Our server was super; considerate and efficient with a warm sense of humor. She made our dining experience excellent.
The description of the food was inaccurate and my husband ordered Medium Well steak and after waiting for an hour it came out Rare. I don’t think the cost of ONE crab cake for an appetizer is worth $13. Do not recommend.
Absolutely Amazing Meal & Atmosphere for a Romantic Dinner
We celebrated our anniversary here because we were set to see a concert at the Hollywood Amphitheater. The food was great, the service was wonderful, and they even gave us a dessert for free for our anniversary!
We were very happy with the drinks, service and food. The surprise birthday cheesecake was also wonderful. The reason I did not give an outstanding recommendation is my bone-in rib eye, which was cooked to perfection, was quite chewy and not the tender steak I was expecting. My husband's wagyu sirloin was very good.
Great stake and great value when you consider soup or salad and potato are included.
Wine list is reasonably priced.
The food was great, we sat at the bar and it was a great atmosphere. The bartenders were friendly and attentive. We will come back.
The atmosphere was casual, but upscale. Service was both unobtrusive and very timely; we never had to look for a server, but weren't constantly bothered with mindless 'how is everything?' inquiries every three minutes. Perfect balance of attention and privacy.
The food was cooked precisely as ordered, delivered quickly and consistently delicious. With one visit, this became our new 'steak place', and we look forward to going back soon.
Great food. Service needs some work.
Primal Cut is an upscale friendly neighborhood restaurant. The food is excellent and their is something for everyone's palate. And the desserts are amazing.
1st time in Chicago and wanted to experience a nice steakhouse. Found this little gem based on reviews from open table. Was seated quickly and service was on point. Food and environment was perfect. Thank you Cory for making this experience great.
Exceeded our expectations and the staff was great. They even gave us a treat for it being our wedding anniversary! It’s nice to find a place that is open to all people, and the Primal Cut did just that for us.
Great atmosphere. Everything we ordered was great! The staff was extremely fast and friendly. They made sure we had whatever we needed. Definitely going back!
Amazing place to go!
Great food and service. Would highly recommend for any occasion.
food was incredible , waitress and bus boys were on top of everything , carrot cake was amazing but wish I new that the pieces were so big ! If I knew that we would have only bought one piece . everything was so GOOOOOOOOOOD !
We went to the Primal Cut for our 2nd year Anniversary at the last minute. The place was very nice the service was excellent. At the end of our dinner they bought us out a little cheese cake and wished us a happy anniversary. We will go back
My 2 brothers and I were warmly greeted at the host counter by Mary. We told her it was our first visit, and Mary took the time to show us around before choosing seating. Our server, Liz, was so very friendly and cheerful and welcomed us with a warm smile. She answered all our questions, and I just casually mentioned we were celebrating my brother’s birthday. The service was wonderful, the food excellent, and Liz surprised us with a birthday cupcake and candle for my brother after dinner. What a sweet gesture by her. We all agreed we would definitely return here, and I will highly recommend Primal Cut.
The filet mignon was excellent. Very tender, flavorful and cooked perfectly for me. Also had the stuffed crab mushrooms. They were good too, just a little too much breading/filler. Being a native Marylander, I like to have more crab and less filling. My husband had the crab soup. That was delicious as well. He had the seafood pasta for dinner and said it was good but there was a lot of it. The chocolate mousse torte for dessert was very good too. We will definitely be back to try more of the steak options.
Best time!! Food was amazing! Our waitress was awesome and checked on us often!!
The manager made me feel welcome the moment I walked in the door!! Very generous portions of delicious food! Can’t complain about anything!!! Can’t wait to go back again!!
And if you like French martinis, try the Stoli French. Out of this world!!
Great decor, love the wine bottle lights. The food is tasty and good quality. Generous portions. We will be back.
Very pricey for the amount of food you get. We celebrated for our 20 th wedding anniversary and our waiter brought me the wrong meal that I ordered. I didn’t want to wait while my husband ate his meal.
Adam our server was amazing and food was great! All servers were smiling and really make the restaurant an enjoyable atmosphere.
The best steak I’ve ever had. All of the food here was absolutely delicious. Our server was so kind and attentive. We sat on their outdoor terrace for a night dinner and had a wonderful time. Primal Cut is our new favorite special occasion dinner!
