Great food, amazing ambiance, wonderful service, and an astounding environment for one on one or group social. You pay for what you get, and you leave without disappointment. I can't wait to go back.

Service was very good and friendly. Dining area is relatively small and seems crowded with tables close together. Food was good but seemed expensive given the ambience and variety. One order was delivered without the side ordered and by time the missing side arrived most people had finished almost 2/3 of their entrees. I don't know if the error was the kitchen or the server forgot to order it. They did comp a glass of wine for the error but I believe they should have also comped the side. Given the ambience, sports on televisions seemed out of place during dining hours, might be OK on weekends and afternoons but not dining hours, doesn't match the desired surroundings.

We made a reservation for Seared before a show at the United Center. It was fantastic. Servers were knowledgeable and friendly, the food was delicious, and the wine list is impressive. Higher end, dim lighting and quiet - perfect for a date. Be prepared to spend a bit, but it’s definitely worth it!

We were the only ones in the restaurant, so the service was excellent. Food was very good. I noticed a few changes to some of the menu items we had previously ordered at Shula's, unfortunately those changes weren't for the better. The prices were more for people with expense accounts. For the money, you can do better at one of the steakhouses that's not in a hotel.

We got ribeye steak and Chilean sea bass... steak was great, but fish not that good. Service was excellent & ambiance was fun. The Nutella Crepes dessert is also definitely worth trying

The duck duet and pretzel crusted chicken were both fantastic. The prices for the food seemed very reasonable based on the quality of the food. We ordered the house Pinot Grigio, which at $16/glass seemed a bit much. Service was very good and the atmosphere top notch.

Disappointed. This is a new restaurant. We are local and went for the NYE prix fix dinner. The lamb chops were overcooked while the filet was undercooked. Replacement lamb chops were then undercooked and excessively fatty. Our server was pleasant but slow, especially given there were only four other tables occupied and there were other servers. Deserts were bland and the mango ice cream seemed previously thawed and refrozen. The only positive was the quality of the meat was very good.

A bit expensive for what they serve. The Chilean Sea Bass a must. Filet was slightly over cooked so a touch dry.

Steak was overcooked and tasted funny. so I sent it back. Second steak was cooked as requested, but also tasted funny. I've never had a steak taste quite so weird... and an expensive one at that. Garlic fries were cold and tasted like frozen fries. Asparagus was overcooked. It also took 30 minutes-plus to get our food and another 20 minutes to get my second steak. Everybody else was done by the time my second one showed up For what it was, the food was terribly overpriced. Avoid this place. There are plenty of other good restaurants near the mall in Schaumburg. Better food. Better ambience. Significantly better value.

We went for our anniversary--The food and the service were exemplary! The pork belly taco appetizer is excellent and unlike any you have tried before, and the duck and lamb entrees were wonderful! The ambiance was good, better after the table next to ours was cleared. We will return:)

Small room and we were the only ones there. Wedding party from banquet came in and dominated the bar and the service was nonexistent when that happened. The food came out cold Very small menu. The filet was nicely done. It was a one person waitstaff!

They need to add some green salads to their appetizers. Prices are a little high, but the food (mostly beef at our table) was very good. I suggest new utensils as no one in my group was able to rest their steak knife on their plate during bites - the knives kept falling off the plate. It became a game/challenge to keep the steak knife on the edge of the plate and no one won! Also, the seating was too low.

Food was good, but not at the standard that demands the price being charged. There is no Ambiance, looks like a conference room with tables and a bar, very stark. Server was attentive, but slow with food considering there were only 3 tables active. If your on an expense account with no transportation, I guess you could do worse. Otherwise, call a cab and go elsewhere.
