Go for the view. It’s a typical steakhouse with typical food. Nothing special.
Thanks for your comments
Great food and service. Quality you would expect from a well established steak house. The staff recognized us for our anniversary with a nice card and complimentary dessert. They did a great job at keeping everything hygienic while still feeling classy. Location on the river made for a really nice ambiance and amazing views. Thanks again.

We were right by a large open window as we requested. Food was up to its usual high standard. The staff was attentive and safe. They took Covid precautions seriously and that made our decision to venture out to celebrate our anniversary worth it. We had a great night and felt safe.
Thank you so much Mary, we are pleased you celebrated with us and felt safe doing so.
Amazing food and and service. This place never disappoints.
Thanks Nick, much appreciated.
Amazingly romantic... Captivating view, ambience was just right for that night ... and the 4 week aged 46 oz. steak 🥩 was cooked to perfection. I will most definitely be there again.
Thank you for the lovely review and for giving us the chance to serve you. Hope to see you again soon
We went to Smith and Wollensky to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter Jay Jay did a great job explaining everything and checking on us. I would definitely go back.
Thank you for the very kind review and I will share your kind words with Jaye.
Great sea bass! Well recommended.
We are so pleased you enjoyed the new addition of the Sea Bass, it's one of my favorites.
Was able to sit on patio right on the river! Perfect night. Great food and service! Was never rushed and wife and I was able to enjoy a night out with a superb meal!
Thank you for spending your evening out with us. We enjoyed your company also!
Attentive service, great tasting food and drinks! Too full to try dessert, maybe next time.
We look forward to your next visit and you should really save room for dessert.... or maybe take one home to enjoy the next day???
Bone-in ribeye was among the best I've had. Great Caesar salad, nice ambiance. Great diiner.
Thank you so much Chris!
Excellent Ribeye but a little bit expensive. The wine list should ne more international.
Thank you for your comments and I will share your wine thoughts with our Beverage director
I tried the Coffee& Cocoa Rubbed Filet. It was outstanding. The SW team continues to impress. Great ambiance eating outside by the Chicago river!
Paul, Thank you for the lovely review and we are so pleased you enjoyed the C&C filet. Looking forward to your next visit.
My boyfriends 35th bday! Our waitress was extremely nice and helpful when we needed recommendations. Regina was her name ! The layered coconut cake was delicious to say the least! It was actually voted one of the best deserts on the planet she mentioned!!
Thank you so much and we are so pleased you celebrated your special occasion with us
Great food, great views, and great service. What more can you ask for? Also received a HUGE slice of cake for my birthday 🎂. Extra kudos for not being stingy!
You have to celebrate with cake!! Thanks for celebrating with us and look forward to your next visit.
Celebrating out engagement with the best steaks in the city! Thank you for the excellent service and making our engagement dinner memorable. We started off with oyster on the half shell which were super refreshing. My fiancé had the 21oz boneless new york strip which she found phenomenal and i had the 28oz boneless rib eye which was absolutely out of this world. We accompanied them with whipped potatoes and the truffle mac which were both insanely good! We capped it off with a fresh baked skillet chocolate chip cookie and a slice of the coconut cake. Unbelievably delicious!!!
Thank you for celebrating your special moment with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon..... or for the 1st Anniversary???
I have been to Smith and Wollensky Steakhouse several times. One of the reasons is their outdoor patio, facing the Chicago River (great view). During our visit, I order the Ribeye Steak (Medium) and the shrimp enhancement. My wife order the New York Strip Steak (Medium). Both food items were delicious and tasted perfect. For the sides we order the onion rings and macaroni & cheese. Again, both were delicious and met our expectations. The restaurant offers valet service for $15.00, it's fast and good. The service staff was good and on top of their tables. We will definitely continue coming back!
Joe, Thank you so much for the very kind review We are so pleased you enjoyed the experience and hope to serve you again soon.
