Mother’s Day Brunch was fantastic. Food and service were outstanding. Only complaint is the lighting- the dark ambiance for a day time brunch made me tired.

The service was good. The soup and salad were ok. Our 3 medium done steaks were over cooked, over charbroiled. Too salty and too garlicky. Couldn't enjoying the quality of the meat. The bread was good. Won't be going back.

My parents live in Oak Lawn and I thought I’d be to every local restaurant in the area. I can’t believe I’ve never been to Rockefeller’s! Great food - I has the ahi tuna tartare and the Caprese salad. Both first rate. Look forward to a future visit

The food was very delicious. My steak was cooked perfectly. I just wish that there were a little more mashed potatoes and that a vegetable wasn’t extra. Service was fantastic. I will definitely recommend it and go back soon

We've been there a few times now. Owner is very friendly and conscientious. Service, however, has always been spotty and slow. Food is outstanding, but a tad over priced for comparable restaurants.

Came in for a late dinner and was greeted and serviced with a smile by hostess and waitstaff. The bartender Nicky made the perfect martini. This was my first time trying the lamb chops and they were seasoned to perfection and very tender. The ambiance is always good and the people are always friendly, whether you are looking for a quick bite or a full dinner do not hesitate to check out Rockefeller’s you will not be disappointed!

The food is amazing and the restaurant looks great. The servers are attentive, and all of them are willing to help and assist when your server is away. There is always music playing and if you catch the right day, you can hear live music. The drinks are great and they have the wines you'd expect. Everything on the menu is amazing, but if you can survive the dozens of great appetizers, the steak or the lamb needs to be on your table. This is definitely one of the best finds on the south side and I guarantee you'll make your second reservation before your first dinner ends.

Great ambience, and excellent service! The staff is very attentive, and the food is always delicious. Sunday Funday Bruch had a wide variety of tasty foods, and unique drinks. The owners make it a fun and comfortable atmosphere! Can't wait to go back!

We are hopeful that more vegetarian options - portabella mushrooms or cauliflower steaks would be a nice added options for those of us who dine with the carnivores!!

Our dinners were a mixed bag. Sea bass was outstanding, 5 stars, wedge salad was made from a funky head of lettuce 3 stars, Steak was cooked as ordered, rare, but badly charred on the outside, fatty and tuff, 1/2 star. Server was poor to fair, way overpriced for what you get.

My bone-in rib eye Steak was a good piece of meat but it was way over-cooked. It was medium-well in part but mostly well-done. My friend also ordered the same steak and requested medium-rare and his steak came medium-well too. This should not happen at nearly $50 for a steak. And, it should not happen when a supposedly upscale steakhouse is less than 10% full. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive but the steaks were extremely disappointing.

Rockefeller's is a nice addition to the southside. If you are looking for an alternative to a downtown steak house, this place is a comparable. The filet was cooked perfectly and the side options were decent. Not a huge menu, but stick to what you know I guess.

Food is as amazing! Brought my 10 year old twins and they have a kids menu which other places have not. Noise level was not bad and service was good. Not the first time we were there and won’t be the last.
