The steak was ok. In a scale of 10 being the highest and zero the lowest- the steak is probably 6. I’ve been to a lot of steakhouses that served better steaks. The staffs were very nice and extra accommodating. They even gave us three complimentary birthday cakes for our three friends celebrating their birth month, which was truly pleasing.
The cakes were very good and very tasty. I actually loved the cake more than the steaks
Our favorite place to eat when we drive to Chicago for special occasions. Always treated with respect and the servers are top notch! First time using reservations, since it was st. Patty’s eve.
Good however had to send scallops back as not fully cooked. Fries were over cooked
Many thanks for the private dinning room for our Business eeting. Everything was perfect in this evening.
Service seemed extremely lacking for our visit. It was not overly crowded on a Friday night, but our service, surprisingly, was very slow. Our bottle of wine was dropped off but not opened for almost 10 minutes. Our waitress came by with my martini, but did not open then wine. Instead we saw her go take an order at another table. Oysters arrived promptly and were delicious, but then we went near 25 minutes without a visit or checkin from our server. Steaks arrived hot and were fantastic, but overall the service was very disappointing.
Celebrated daughter’s 18th birthday.
We went out out for my friends birthday dinner. We are from out of town. The birthday card was an excellent touch. Our server, food, ambiance and the rest of the staff was amazing. Highly recommend the truffle Mac & Cheese but everything was so good. We had an overall great experience. Would definitely recommend.
Came in for st Patrick’s day and stumbled across this place. Excellent dining experience!!! FYI the upper floor is more formal but they also have a lower floor that is more casual but can still get the same meals
The bacon-wrapped sirloin was literally one of the best steaks I've had in my life.
Beautiful table. Server was great!
Our waiter was amazing and
Nothing bad nothing exceptional
Great service and fantastic food.
Location not ideal for having a car, but view is great over the river.
It was wine tasting night but it added some entertainment with great energy. Thanks to Teresa for a perfect table. Service with Hiem (sp?) was top notch. We’ll be back.
Mark is the Best waiter! Always a good time
Wine Week always fun
Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse is a consistent great value. I've visited this restaurant numerous times over the past 6 years as work took me to Chicago and it has always been exceptional. If you're looking for a true dining experience, I highly recommend this restaurant.
Excelente lugar y comida.
The staff was so nice and treated me and my friends well. I went there to celebrate my birthday. They gave me a card and a generous amount of cake. Food was amazing, I had the lobster macaroni. It was great, would def recommend to a friend.
Unfortunately not a great night. First put a disgusting pail on our table to chill the wine...looked like a cleanup bucket ...not what you would expect for a high end steak house. Next steaks all of our steaks were over cooked and fries were served cold.
Service was well-timed and friendly. Love the Food and the view.
We were a bit disappointed in the food compared to the NY location. The crab cakes in NY were accompanied by a pickle and avocado type sauce with a remoulade sauce on the side and the crab cakes were better. I had been looking forward to those for months, thinking they would be the same for my birthday dinner.
Great food and service. We were seated at a table with a great river view. The food was fantastic and portions are large. The gigantic chocolate cake is gigantic!!
Great food & view at the Grille.
We ordered a porterhouse for 117 USD and it was carbonized...so lots of waist
Overall one of the nicest restaurants in Chicago. The Tomahawk Wagyu, while tasty, was not as tender as I expect Wagyu to be. The other steaks therefore might be pushing the boundary of price to value, though still reasonable for downtown Chicago.
Fantastic steak overlooking the river. Great service and experience. The end.
Seafood was not up to par - lobster was over cooked - steaks were great
Fun night out to dinner with ladies from our office while at the Midwinter Dental Meeting. Terrific service, great food and and a nice experience. Thanks!
We had a wonderful time with great food and excellent service. Always a great overall experience.
I'm a steak lover and this was the best dining experience I've ever had
Visiting from out of state
Good service, great loxation, but the steak was way too buttery
Gerald is a passionate employee proud of his craft and your company. Our dinner was custom made for us without hesitation and with exuberance! We will visit again soon!
Quality food, quality service and great ambiance!!
Fantastic experience! We left STK around the corner after realizing it was going to be a terrible experience and walked over. Seated immediately and had amazing service, food and wine. We enjoyed the tomahawk sliced table side! We will back again soon!!
Outstanding Angus beef bacon appetizer. My truffle rubbed tenderloin main course may have been the most tender, tastiest steak I’ve ever eaten!
All around excellent experience for everyone. It’s no wonder why this establishment is such a Chicago staple. We’ll be back!
Food is delicious and the service is great. Our reservation was for 8:45, but they did not seat us until 9:15. However, they made sure to honor our request to seat near the window overlooking the river. The view was great. I would definitely recommend Smith & Wollensky.
Overall was great. Would go back for sure.
