Our waiter, Gerald, was great!!! Very knowledgeable re the menu/specials/brand, and friendly! 😊
One of my favorite restaurants. Especially sitting outside on their patio. Our server (Mark) was AMAZING - patient, attentive, and accommodating.
The restaurant was old and dated. There are a ton of steakhouses in Chicago and this should be skipped.
La carne no fue lo que esperábamos, no estaba tan rica de sabor y el servicio muy malo, pedimos agua como 3 veces y cuando acabamos de comer la trajeron
Muy caro para la calidad de comida y servicio
The location and service was great, sadly the range of dishes and value for money was not entirely great. We had a very ordinary bottle of red wine that was beyond expensive. I would not frequent this place because of the prices and limited menu.
Just a date night with wife and I. Great time and experience. Will go agin.
The steak was chard, Steak 48 is a better choice for the money
Overpriced but justifiable by views and location. Waiter not friendly or informative. Killed about 2 dozen fruit flies while eating a $65 steak. Would not recommend.
Loved the riverfront location and fabulous view from our second level waterfront table. The hanging tomahawk Waygu beef was the finest steak we’d ever experienced and plenty to share for the 4 of us. And the seafood tower for four was fresh and delicious and be careful with the Atomic horseradish-it’s out of this world! Dessert portions are huge and aught to be shared. Our server Laura was exceptional. We would definitely recommend this fine steakhouse!
It's not cheap. But it's worth every penny.
My wife and I both had the filet - mine was Oscar with a lobster tail. The steaks were tender enough you could almost drink them through a straw. The roasted beets appetizer was excellent. JJ was friendly, attentive, and answered all over our questions without any of the pretentiousness you can sometimes find in restaurants of this caliber.
The four of us ordered steaks and every one of them had absolutely no flavor. The best part of the meal were the salads. Definitely not worth the $50 to $68 per steak. Would not recommend if you are really craving a delicious steak...as we were!
Food was delicious. The filet was cooked exactly how I ordered it. The truffle Mac n cheese is so good. Great choices of wine and drinks. Food was out to our table within 15 minutes of ordering. We will definitely be going back next time we are in Chicago.
Great venue to celebrate my wife's birthday. Good service, great food!
Excellent evening out on the town!
Good food and ambience.
Went for lunch and it was great, we were seated outside, food was delicious, service super friendly and helpful overall very pleseant
As usual, the steaks, sides and libation were typical of this particular restaurant's excellence in the realm of high end steak houses. I highly recommend Smith and Wollensky Chicago
Great food, great service and beautiful view. We sat outside. We needed to be out on time to see a show and our waiter made sure it happened. Walking distance to the CBIC theater.
I was a little disappointed at first, I requested a window seat and they sat us on the 2nd floor near the window by the patio doors and you couldn't enjoy the view because you had the outdoor seating area which was closed because of the cold weather. My husband went and asked if there was another table by the window so they got us a spot on the 1st floor in the Grill portion and then we got a good view of the river by the window. The service was great, the food was great. The noise level in the Grill portion of the restaurant can get very loud, the loudness was not so great. My husband was disappointed that they took the steak on the salt bed off of the menu. The overall experience was good.
Service was superb food was great!!
Brittney our server was great! Gave us good recommendations ! It was our first visit to Chicago and we will definitely come back here again!
The grill one level below has an awesome view of the river - the staff was fantastic - very attentive - food wasvsuperb
Waitress was outstanding food was the best. One of my favorite places to eat. You can’t top this place!
Wonderful service. The staff all work in sync. We had the porterhouse and the two of us could not finish it. The tempura Alaska King crab legs were delicious as well. Don't forget the Massive chocolate cake. We also got the coconut cake and it was light as air.
Overpriced and poor service. Outdoor patio only redeeming point
We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere! They were able to find us a table by the windows on the river per our request. Watching the boats go by and seeing the city lights was great. The steak and lobster Mac n cheese were to die for!!! So good!
Food was superb.
Incredible ambiance and atmosphere! Service was stellar! Romantic river view! Lovely time.
It was our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. Great food and service. Will be going back next time we are back in Chicago.
The service was amazing and the views of the river make the experience good but the steaks were overcooked and the sides were bland. A good place to go for a glass of wine on the patio but not the quality of food you should expect in Chicago
This is the second year we’ve gone there for birthday dinner. The Pea soup is fabulous. We ordered the “bacon” on the appetizer menu which was one of the best items I’ve ever tasted. I had the bone-in New York steak and it was cooked to perfection. The other party had a filet mignon which was also absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable. We had great ( house ) wine and great cocktails so I highly recommend Smith and W for every day dining and especially a birthday, anniversary etc.
Excellent as always! View, service, drinks, and food!
Our server James was amazing! He made us feel very comfortable and we had an amazing time celebrating our first year of marriage. We will definitely come back.
Food and service was excellent
This was easily the best steak that I have ever eaten. Will absolutely be going here again if I am in the Chicago area. Very knowledgeable waiter.
We had a beautiful experience, great food, accommodating staff, ambiance, my husband had a beautiful birthday dinner excellent steak and superior Brut and a cake as big as his
Great service great food and a nice atmosphere
Tried to get a reservation at Gibson’s, couldn’t get in so we decided to go here. It was a bit pricy but hot damn was the steak delicious.
Steak wasn’t cooked right. Asked for medium rare. Came out medium plus.
