Oh my gosh! I went for Valentine’s Day with My girlfriend celebrating our five year anniversary and we had the best server, Grace! Please ask for her, she knows her food. We ate so much and it was all so amazing. The beef bacon is NOT to be skipped, they don’t play around there! Overall, beautiful place and amazing food with great servers! Only downfall was the wait, even though I had a reservation and I arrived late after having called. In there defense, it was Valentine’s Day.

Entire experience was excellent. Wait staff was professional and friendly and prompt but not intrusive. Food was prepared to perfection and the presentation impeccable. A bit beyond our normal price point and would only return for very special occasions.

I ate lunch there yesterday and normally have a great experience. I had the tenderloin tips on a wollensky salad and the tips were undercooked (I ordered them medium and they were very rare) had a lot of gristle and tasted very strong (like they were about to go bad). The salad itself was overdressed. Very disappointing.

We had a lovely meal at S & W as usual. This was a particularly great evening as we were celebrating an 85th birthday. Salads, crab cakes, steaks were all wonderful and cooked to perfection. Our waiter Peter was superb and surprised us with a delicious chocolate cake and whipped cream for the table. The atmosphere was as a steak house should be; we were able to carry on a conversation and overall is was warm, cozy and yet lively. I am a regular host for events here but I am glad to have had such an amazing evening with my family this occasion. Thank you S & W!!!

Our table was ready upon arrival. We were immediately greeted with a card and sparkling wine in celebration of our anniversary. This made the whole night for both of us making our event even more unique/special.
The service was relaxed and professional. A recommendation for wine paring was right on with the steak. The steaks were cooked to medium as requested, and the side of carrots a unique taste (excellent taste btw!)
All being said, we will see us there again!
Thank you S&W

My wife and I have had the pleasure of dining here twice. Once back in 2006 and again a week ago to celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary. In both cases, the service and the food were beyond reproach. I ordered the filet mignon oscar both visits; a perfect steak with asparagus and crabmeat with a hollandaise sauce. I've had incredible steaks over the years (including some well known steak houses in Chicago) and this was my favorite. The 10oz size was perfect for me.

The wait staff was fantastic, treating us both like royalty! I can't say enough good things about the dining experience here. You will not be disappointed! I look forward to visiting again soon.

The service was excellent. I usually like this place but the meal this time was flat. My steak was tough and not worth the price. The side dishes were mixed -- the mushrooms were inedible but the sprouts were great. Appetizers were very good.

We dined here for Christmas dinner. Our table was right next to the window which is what I had requested. The restaurant is beautiful. We were served bread and butter fairly quickly which was nice. Our waitress was either swamped or checked out. She served our dinner but never brought me a plate. So as my family was eating dinner on their nice warm plates I waited until she came by (which was infrequent at best) to ask for a plate. She then brought me an ice cold plate which only made my steak which was already Luke warm even more cold. When we got a refill on our drinks she never bothered to take the old cups so for a party of 6 with multiple refills it makes a somewhat small table more cluttered.
Overall the food was good but service was lacking. For an upscale steak house I expected a lot more. Especially when our tab was over $400. I’d stick with the capital grill where they come and dust your crumbs off the table.
