    We always have a wonderful experience here! The food is easily accessible but elevated and delightful. Servers are all phenomenal, easy to talk to and knowledgeable. Everything is made in house with a lot of care into everything they do. This is a gem of a place.

    Steadfast has cusine that is unique compared to other Loop restaurant choices. The area of the restaurant enclosed with glass is ideal in terms of noise level, able to have a conversation. Would recommend for lunch.

    Steadfast is in fact a hotel restaurant but it does not feel like it. It was very quiet on the Saturday evening we were there, in fact apart from a couple at the bar, there was nobody. It is strange as the decor is beautiful, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding (especially the bread basket!). Hopefully on other nights it will be a bit more lively as we will certainly come back here.

    The bread was fantastic. We were seated by the open kitchen which was super loud and hot. I wish we had asked to move. Nothing was terribly wrong but nothing was that great either. I ordered the steak bordelaise medium rare. Which looked right but tasted well done though the sauce was amazing. I guess for a hotel restaurant it is very good. But compared to what the Chicago food scene has to offer, it’s definitely mediocre. If you’re not a serious foodie, you will be fine.

    Fantastic all around! Must haves are: large homemade bread basket, duck egg carbonara, salmon almondine, pork shank. The desserts are named after the major flavor profile of the dish. The Apple was spectacular but the Corn, Pumpkin, and Grape were also delicious. Order a few and pass them around the table for best effect! My family will definitely be back!

    I was disappointed. I went for restaurant week, but they require the entire table to participate. I have not encountered that anywhere else during restaurant week. My guest could not part take in the menu, so I had to skip it and that was the reason I picked the restaurant. Had that been disclosed, we would not have gone and then felt we were stuck. Food was good overall, but chicken added to salad was dry. Dessert was tiny.

    The butternut squash soup was delicious. The Ruben Sandwich meat was grisly couldn't eat and had to return it. Very accommodating to that and I ordered a steak sandwich, very good. One other person with us had to return the steak sandwich because it was not cooked as she asked. The staff was very accommodating and friendly.

    I gave it a low rating because the pastrami was so tough I was unable to eat it. Our waiter only came around once so I couldn't ask him to bring me something else. The other food that my dining partners ate was fine. I was disappointed.

    I liked my meal and the service was top notch but I paid $10 to have 2 ounces of salmon added to my salad. They also sat me next to angled wall just inside the door that made it difficult for me to get in and out and sit squarely at the table. Good food and drink, great service, but not in line with what I paid.

    Our lunch at Steadfast on Friday was okay, but not better than okay. The space was raucously loud when we arrived, but as the lunch crowd emptied out, it became reasonably quiet. I would not go to this restaurant at the height of lunch hour due to the noise level. The food was okay. I had the lobster roll, which was small and ordinary and came with a lot of French fries. To the point that I felt like I was having French fries for lunch. My friend had the soup, which he said was good, and a Greek salad, which was again okay but nothing special. I would not run back to Steadfast - it used to be better.

    It's shiny and new and the staff are nice enough. I don't know how any business gets done over lunch, it is so loud inside, and I assume that's their primary audience during the week. The chicken served with salads was weird, it was like a pesto chicken served with every salad offering. Strange. But I ate it, and the chicken was cooked well.

    The Duck is a must have! Staff is incredibly well-studied on the menu and ready to make recommendations that aren’t just careless up-sells. Fantastic food and a lovely way to spend your time if you find yourself downtown. Only a couple blocks away from the Christkindlemarket (seasonal recommendation) if you’re looking for a place to grab a bite after being warmed up by some cider and mulled wine!

    I met a friend for lunch on 11/22. We both ordered the exact same thing. After waiting a considerable amount of time, the waitress brought us food, but it belonged to the couple sitting next to us, who had arrived long after we did. It wasn’t until then that the waitress realized our order had been forgotten. Fortunately, we didn’t have tight time constraints. The food finally arrived - the cheeseburger and side salad were amazing. At no time did a manager come to our table to apologize and no one offered us a complimentary drink or dessert. When the bill arrived, we were charged the full amount. Maybe we should have escalated the situation ourselves, but really shouldn’t have had to.

    My only complaint is that the waiter brought us more appetizers than necessary for the number of people - hence inflating the bill and wasting food. My fault for leaving it up to him but I hate feeling like I was taken advantage of.
