A sophisticated setting within the acclaimed steakhouse, the room seats up to 20 guests and features a striking, temperature-controlled wall of wine, contemporary furnishings and artwork. Its menu is ever changing and revolves around seasonal ingredients.
Reserved table, seated promptly, excellent waiter, great food. Special touch to celebrate my birthday. Had a wonderful meal and wonderful time
We went on the last day it was open so I would not recommend it to anybody because it is closed now
I had a gift card that I forgot about so I decided to have a pre surgery night out, so I made a reservation at Primehouse and booked a room at the James Hotel for the night. When I went down to the restaurant, I found out that my gift card was no longer taken after an owner change. My server Kevin was so superb, giving me comp treats through out my dinner, which was also superb, that I really felt special, and I went up to my room with memories of a wonderful time. Thank you Primehouse!
Birthday dinner, service was less than par (bus boy as a server?) food was good, but for the price of it all, did not hold up to expectations. I know they are closing, but why not go out strong rather than flat. And that’s kind of how our group felt. Sad to have such high expectations when we had booked.
Tim, our server for the evening was one of the best!
Nice restaurant perfect food and drinks rest service
Steaks not cooked to desired temperature. For an $85 steak, you would expect more.
Desert dry. They are closing in 2 weeks, so clearly they don’t care.
we saw this online and we make the reservation. Actually there are many steak house in Chicago is good but we choose a soso one. The price is high and the food is soso too. The fires has some cheese flavor we dont like it
Heard some excellent reviews of this restaurant but our experience with the shared Porterhouse was poor. Meat undercooked and then when returned back from the kitchen completely charred. Waited 20 mins more of reorder food while our guests continued the complete the meal. Not impressed and won't be back.
The Primehouse is a great place for a 'special' steak dinner. The menu is simple but very high-quality.
Terrible Thanksgiving Dinner, turkey was tough and the gravy was not much better. Not sure how they do with there steaks but I would be suspicious of a restaurant that can’t cook a turkey. How could the possible serve a decent steak.
Very enjoyable ambiance and the food was delicious.
If you are a fine wine enthusiast, you need to droo in. They have the corvin system that allows you to enjoy fine older reds (10 to 20 + years old) by the glass!
The 55 day dry aged ribeye Rare with a nice char is one if the best steaks wver!
Our waiter Tim was awesome. The food was great but his service made the meal!
Outstanding service and food. I highly recommend the Ceasar Salad which is prepared table side, the Delmonico Steak and the Creamy Greens.
Great food, Wonderful server. Fun menu. Great place.
I've always enjoyed the menu at Primehouse. The steaks were exceptional this time, as always. However, my friends and I were slightly disappointed that the pop-over bread is no longer on the menu. The bread is definitely one of the highlights and unique thing about Primehouse. The sourdough bread is something that we find at every other restaurants and it wasn't that great compared to other places we've been at. The overall experience was still great, because we obviously came for the steak, not the bread, but definitely something I was looking forward to coming back for.
Delicious food in a great atmosphere! We loved the Caesar salad prepared tableside. The strip steak was flavorful and well proportioned. The food was beautifully presented by an attentive staff.
A great steak dinner and lovely service from Kevin. Bring back the popovers!
We were unable to have a drink pre-bear game was a disappointment, as so many other bars and restaurants in the area have bar service Sunday am, good food, not a surprise restaurant was empty due to their restricted liquor license
One of the best places to get a steak in Chicago. Awesome dry aged ribeyes!
One of the best, if not the best, burgers in the city. Looking forward to trying the steak next time.
Great food, empty restaurant
Service was excellent. Knowledgeable, helpful, friendly staff collaborate as an impressive team. Super attentive. We had not expedienced dry aged before and after the first experience we are not fans. It doesnt help that although the ribeye came medium rare as ordered, the strip also ordered medium rare came medium to well. The salads were wonderful. Great presentation and taste. Sides were tasty though very modest portions. Fortunately an additional side came out compliments of the house.
We had a great first-time experience. I have a food allergy and our waiter was extremely in tune with everything on the menu and was very helpful and accommodating; worry free dining is hard to find sometimes. We made a reservation got seated right away. It was a quite night and we had excellent food and excellent service!
Food was substandard for price. Service was slow. Will not recommend or be back. Does not live up to “number one” ranking by any stretch of the imagination.
To whom it might be concerned,
Hope you are doing great! Would like to share with you our experience, so you can improve.
First Impression is extremely poor. Felt judged by look by the hostess.
Our server Jackie (Jack) was amazing! Great knowledge about food and wines, was excellent. Food was delicious.
However, experience with hostess ruined all experience. Hostess gave bad looks about most of the customers while looking at colleagues and walking them to the table.
I am working in Park Hyatt in California and my partner is working in The Peninsula Chicago and we were extremely disappointed.
Inform your hostess not to give a look to people from head to the bottom. She looked how we dressed, our jewelry. Felt very uncomfortable. Training will be appropriate.
We were visiting Chicago and heard great reviews about Primehouse. I can only say that our meal was superb. The steak melted in my mouth and the favor was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Chicago. The staff was also an added extra bonus. Very knowledgeable and friendly!!
We went here (9/11/17 6:30 table of 3)on the recommendation of a coworker who had visited in 2015. Upon arrival, it looked like a standard hotel steakhouse. That being said, it was actually far from. It would be an understatement to say it was the best steak (35 day KC Strip) I've ever had (and I've had plenty). We asked about the dry aging process and were invited to take a tour of the storing area. Everything we saw was explained in great detail. It was refreshing to SEE that what we were promised was actually what we were getting...NOT a marketing gimmick.
I apologize for not having names of staff to thank. Kudos to all 11/10.
The dry-aged steaks and the basil mashed potatoes were delicious! Service was excellent.
Very average steak at WAY above average price. Tiny portion sides. Not the crispest lettuce on the salad. For the price just not really impressed.
Not what it was... they cut corners and dumped the wonderful popovers they used to have for a stale bun. Won't be back anytime soon... they had a huge number of tables open when we arrived, I know why now.
Hands down best steak we have ever had! 35 day Kansas City strip is the one to get. It's big enough to split and it won't disappoint. We ordered it medium rare like we would a filet. It was tender and better than any filet we've ever had. Order some wine and a couple of sides and you won't be disappointed.
Very flavorful, well aged steaks. Service is very professional.
We've been going to David Burke's Prime House for years. Last Friday went for my wife's birthday and found out it is no longer David Burke's. It's just Prime House. And it's just not good. The steaks were barely fair, and I had to send mine back because the meat quality was terrible. The potatoes had no taste. And they no longer serve the popovers. Now that it's no longer associated with David Burke, it's not longer anywhere near the same restaurant. Expect for the prices. Those are still as they used to be . . . high. Won't go back. It's the disappointing end to what was a very special restaurant.
Service was top notch
The restaurante did NOT live up to all the superlatives given in previous testes
Steaks were magnificent! Never had Prime aged steaks and the flavor was amazing!
A little pricey but well worth it! It's not often my husband and I go out in a date!
Delicious steak, super-friendly service, and excellent cocktails (try the Whiskey Old Fashioned).
