Always a real treat to enjoy dinner with friends/colleagues at S&W. The view is great and the food is always top notch. Try their caramel creme desert (believe it was called that). It won’t disappoint!
windows next to our table, right by the river, were filthy on the outside. I get it - hard to clean. but you could hardly see outside.
I get the price - it's what you expect. but the mashed potatoes were runny. Filets okay. sprouts good.
Although they were more than accommodating for our group of 20, the service on the backend was horrendous. We have dined here for many, many occasions; birthdays, business, anniversaries, etc. And have definitely referred this restaurant many times; however this time was nothing but insulting. Our bill in total was close to $3,000 and the waiter could not separate checks and made numerous mistakes and then after all had paid, told us we still owed $800, which by the way was an error on his part. After all the business we have given them over the years to be insulted like this at their error and have nothing said to us by management is horrific. Will have to rethink any future visits...very disappointed as the food is amazing!
Food was not worth the cost
The staff was very accomodating and they gave me the river side seat I was hoping for with much less of a wait than they first stated. The staff and service were great.
The best views though, when indoor seating, are down in the grill with a more basic menu. Feels like they should switch that. But the views in the grill are excellent. Right on the river. And if you ask, they will give you the upstairs menus.
Drinks were good.
The food though seemed standard. It was yummy, but I did have higher expectations.
Still, overall, I enjoyed it.
Always a great place to spend St Patrick’s Day!!!!
Service was superb, very attentive. Absolutely loved the complimentary shrimp and mashed potato appetizer. Our meal was delicious as always. One of our favorite to go places when we have theatre tickets.
Amazing quality and taste, great service, a little too pricey
Took my wife out for her birthday dinner and everything was fantastic from the moment we stepped through the doors. The hostess promptly sat us at a river view table. The waiter Gerald was excellent and even offered to show me the downstairs bar/kitchen. The meal was outstanding from the crab cakes , split pea soup, shrimp chowder and of course the lobster macaroni! To top the evening off , our waiter ( Gerald ) brought out this humongous piece of chocolate cake with a candle to help celebrate the occasion. I can’t wait to return during the summer months to really enjoy the Riverwalk and boating scenery. Smith and Wollensky...job well done !
Views downstairs by windows are awesome. Overall very good but expected more. Side order Mac n cheese not hot at all. Wedge salad wasn’t great (core of lettuce still there and little brown) w large pieces of pork (not typical bacon) which I didn’t care for. Empty cocktail glasses left of table when serving second drinks. No bread service. Ribeye Steak very good. Scallops very good. Huge serving of cake. For the prices I expected more.
Excellent service and excellent food.
Will definitely come back here when I’m back in Chicago for business or pleasure
It as been a few years since I ate here but a from Germany wanted to eat here because of the pass experience. The service and the staff were great!! The food and the value for food and wine was not great.
It as slipped from it previous years. Its a shame because I always loved it.
We just arrived from New Orleans. We wanted a steak. We picked this restaurant. Walked a mile in our New Orleans spring clothing in 30 degree weather. The receptionist sat us at the prefect seat overlooking the Chicago river. Our waiter, Lee was friendly and efficient. Everything he recommended was fantastic especially the bone in fillet.
$70 Steak was undercooked
We went here for our anniversary. We were met by our waiter with two glasses of champagne. Our waiter made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. He was very attentive, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable with everything on the menu. Our food was prepared to perfection and so were our cocktails. This was my second time here and both experiences were absolutely amazing!
Great date night with my husband. My martini drink tasted amazing but I couldn't handle the alcohol so my husband finished it:)
Service was perfect and the food was amazing! Everything from steak to seafood to brussel sprouts and lobster mac & cheese, absolutely delicious! We ordered one of every desert and they did not disappoint!! The perfect place for a special night with a view of the river!
A group of us went before seeing a show at The Chicago Theater and we had a fabulous meal and service! Highly recommend this staple in Chicago. Loved the view of the river and the city!
Great food, excellent wine, and attentive/wonderful service. We were not disappointed.
Juan was very personable, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was very flavorful - definitely high quality and excellent preparation. Everyone from manager to waitstaff to host gave us personalized service for a very enjoyable dining experience.
Great view of river, ambiance and service was excellent
The food was superb. The service was excellent: attentive but not over-bearing. And you can't beat the view!
It was good the host sat us near the window for a river view which was fantastic
I have been there several times before - always had a great time. This time was for a special family event and we had a terrific time as well! Excellent seafood tower, steaks, sides and dessert! Service was spot on!
The food was incredible and our service was very good. Only issue was beyond the restaurants control. A patron brought a crying baby they would not attend to properly. The waiter and manager were incredible and bought us a dessert and a cocktail. I will definitely go back again.
The food was delicious, service was great, and the view was great! It's in a great location, perfect for us as we had a musical to go to afterwards, and the walk was only a few blocks.
Excellent service, food, ambiance for a romantic date night with my wife. Chateaubriand for two was delicious and plentiful. Great cocktails and terrific view.
We had a party of nine and everyone was very happy with our dining experience. Our food was delicious and our service was outstanding.
The food was amazing and service was fast and professional. Highly recommended!
Food excellent as expected.
Service just outstanding
Family dinner after Hamilton
I chose Smith & Wollensky for my birthday dinner party of 10 . The ambiance, the staff, and the food especially, met all my expectations! We all truly enjoyed our visit, everything was perfect!
Many servers servicing our table. Everyone was extremely friendly and the food was excellent. Will definitely be returning.
Fantastic time! Our server, Christy, was top notch! She took such great care of us. We were celebrating a work promotion, and received a ginormous piece of chocolate cake as a gift.
They also left my partner a card congratulating her on her special day.
The food was phenomenal as well! We will definitely be back - and will recommend S&W to friends and family.
Awesome IGOR is the man !
My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this gem on yelp. We were pleasantly surprised at how tasty our steaks were. We usually go to Chicago Cut if we are looking for a good steak in that area. However, we may be hitting up Smith & Wollensky more regularly. Great spot!
Best strakhouse in Chicago I think
