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
On the evening of February 7th 2018, my wife and I were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary at the Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse located in the Marni City Towers in Chicago Illinois. I brought my wife to this restaurant a few years ago for her Birthday, and thought that she would enjoy dining here again, as the last time was sooooo very memorable.
We arrived and were seated immediately at a table that afforded us a wonderful view of the Chicago River. Our waiter (who seemed a bit cheeky…but in a very good, humorous way) made us feel comfortable and ‘at home’ as he told us the specials for the day.
My wife started with the Lobster Bisque Soup and I had an Iceberg Wedge Salad (both of which were wonderful). I then ordered the Signature Bone-In Filet (which I devoured and thoroughly enjoyed) and the wife had the Veal Chop Milanese (which was sooooo huge, she needed a ‘doggie bag’ afterward).
From the starters to the Main Course, the service was second to none. Although there were several others being served during our time there, we felt like the only diners. That was how special the staff made us feel, without hovering or being somewhat clingy. Everything about the dining experience was professional, friendly, and courteous.
Food was excellent ambience was amazing will definitely be going back.
My husband and I dined at Smith & Wollensky for Valentine's Day. Upon entering we were warmly greeted by quite a few members of the staff. The hostess checked our coats and was very friendly. We were seated right away. Our waiter Juan V. welcomed us told us he'd give us a few minutes to look over the menu and he'll be back to take our order. Shortly after he left us a party of 5 was seated right next to us. Juan was their server also. My husband and I began talking and got wrapped up in conversation when we realized that the party of 5 was being served their drinks and placing their food order. Our order had yet to be taking. Our server had never retired, not even to take our drink order. Just as we were discussing leaving because of the service, Juan came over and apologized. I believe he saw the frustration on my face. Juan apologized and explained that the large party took up a little more of his time then expected. He took our drink order and came back fairly quickly to take our food order. I was prepared to leave a bad review here but Juan redeemed himself and the restaurant. I understand the service industry so I'm aware that theirs always a opportunity to turn a bad experience into a great one and Juan did just that, he more then compensated for the inconvenience he felt we had experienced and made the rest of the evening superbly enjoyable and we'll definitely dine at Smith & Wollensky again. Thank you Juan my husband and I had a Valentine to remember ❤️
Everything was great accept the vegetables were not temperature hot.
Always the best steak here, and fantastic service. We had a late lunch on Valentine's day and it was like we booked out the entire restaurant! I had the steak fitted, and the meat tasted funny so we let the server know and they were incredibly nice, very apologetic, and comped us dessert. It's just not service and friendliness you get everywhere (we had olive oil that had gone bad at another place and the response was this is what people have been eating all day). They have a great bar which, when not busy, has fantastic views, but we also like the main room which has a more elegant touch. Summertime dining on the patio is also fantastic.
