Service was excellent and they catered to everything we needed! The price definitely makes up for the experience. Patios have a beautiful view of the skyline and lake
Everything was delicious! Waiter was great - good time!
Outstanding. Best steakhouse in Chicago (And NYC & Vegas). Service, Quality and simply the best steaks!
Our first time at this location and it was the Best! We sat outside and had a fantastic time.
Thank you S&W for a memorable meal and experience!
Excellent wine and champagne selections recommended by our server. Food was delicious, with ample portions. Outstanding server and courteous Valet parking. A true winner in the Chicago tradition of steak and seafood.
Excellent food and service. Our business team had a fantastic experience.
My steak was cook as requested. My wife had salmon which was just ok. For the price I would expect more though and I would not recommend this place or return
It was my birthday
Kristy was our waitress. She was wonderful
Love it! Food was great and ambiance!
Took my wife to celebrate her birthday. She loved it.
Waiter was very rude and steak was not cooked as asked for. I was hoping for the money we paid we would have had better service. Such a disappointment
I usually tip 30% for good service, but this time I was planning on leaving 20% tip. However, to my surprise an 18% tip was already included with our check. I haven’t experienced this practice at other places in the area like Maple & Ash, Prime & Provisions, or Bavette's Bar & Boeuf.
I’m wondering if they limit themselves in that way to make up for the bad quality in food and service.
We had an amazing 16th year anniversary dinner! The staff at the restaurant were simply outstanding. We enjoyed great tasting food, great service, and great vibes. They made our night extremely special! We will be back soon!
It was a really good place. Steak was cooked just right.
Everything was great except for our waiter’s attitude………it was horrible! It appeared that we were bothering him placing our order! I’ve been here a couple of times and never experienced anything like this before. Too expensive of a restaurant for a bad attitude!
Our server Igor was so attentive and nice!
Waitress was rude at the end and wanted us to leave that she gets another table. We felt pressured to leave
Good 👍 Good 👍 👏 👌 🙌 😎 😌 👍 👏 👌 🙌 😎 😌 👍 👏 👌
Lovely window table with view of the river as requested. Staff was great and so was food!!
Fabulous seating and view of the water. The wait staff was knowledgeable and accommodating.
They were simply awesome. We sat outside with an incredible view of the river. The service was absolutely first rate and the timing between courses was perfect. The confit bacon and angry shrimp were awesome. The salads were great. The main courses were just perfect. All in all a fantastic Chicago dining experience!
I specifically requested a table by the window and the host says they're all taken. We then said we would wait until something opens up and she said it will take hours since most of them just sat down. We then ended up taking a table which was in everyone's way. We saw a table get up after 15 minutes of being sat down. We requested if we could move and apparently someone had requested that table after we had sat down. From there, everything went down the hill. Our server was extremely rude and barely checked on us. Once we got our food, she didn't check if it was cooked the way we wanted it nor check if everything was ok. Once we are done, didn't bother to box the food instead just handed me the to go box. When I looked around, she was very friendly to other tables and even boxed their food. Very disappointed since it was our anniversary dinner and visiting Chicago. I expected a better service! I would not recommend this place at all.
Great place for after work drinks and dinner with the team.
Great place and service
Andrew was great!!! Made our anniversary very special!
Food and view were fabulous as was our waiter.
Nothing beat view outdoor in front Chicago River and Igor our server is fantastic
Food was delicious and the service was fantastic! The weather was great we sat on the patio, great food and service was a perfect dinner.
Very expensive but if you look behind the curtain, you will simply see the wizard.
It was a great
Service was excellent and dinner was great! Front of house staff was very helpful, friendly and courteous.
Great location and view but felt rushed. Steaks were great. Truffle Mac and Cheese was almost too truffle forward. Lobster crab cake was very well executed with loads of crab and lobster claw. Dessert was standard New York cheesecake. I am not sure if the 90 minute seating limit is a city thing or covid thing but the waiter at times seemed too pushy and we weren’t lingering but we were done just before the 90 minutes. It was not relaxing.
Great service - food was good. Ambience was mixed. Expected better for prices charged.
This is a fantastic restaurant with uncanny service and excellent food. The views of the Chicago River are amazing! Make sure to go here it’s worth it
Good food and good service.
Wonderful time at a great location with excellent service and exquisite food.
Amazing Steakhouse in front of the River. The food is outstanding and the service is great.
This is my 3rd time to dine here. Each time it has been excellent in all areas of service. The food was excellent and served appropriately with good timing beteeen the appetizer and main course. The wine and seating were great! Can’t wait to return!
Had a glitch which was a matter of miscommunication but the general manager rectified the situation. Lucy was instrumental and professional.
Hands down the best steaks in the city! The wait staff is always so knowledgable, whether you need a wine pairing recommendation, can't decide which amazing sides to order or are torn between which steak to get. Not a red meat fan? The fish is just as good! The lobster & crab cakes are amazing and their raw fish towers are impressive. You can always count on Smith & Wollensky to have consistent service, phenomenal food and the best views right on the river.
Don’t come here!!! Beautiful place on the Chicago River. Their ONLY focus is to turn every table in 90 minutes and that is in writing on the table. Management has aggravated so many patrons with this policy there were three people at the bar and barely a handful on the beautiful patio with NO people waiting. I will NEVER return here.
