Marcus is very very good at his job one of the best servers we have ever had, I was apart of a group of 7 business people, we had just left a small cocktail reception and the service as well as the food did not disappoint. Steak 48 has an amazing ambiance my group sat next to the kitchen where we could see the chefs execute flawlessly, due to the reception we came for the MEAT and the meat here is fabulous, most of the groups members are from Texas where we know the cow, it’s just the cow here is different. This may be the best steak house in the country

I'm very pleased to write this review because my previous one wasn't as flattering! On our last visit, the service was so poor that it overshadowed great food, etc. Enough about that....because our most recent try was fantastic! The service was awesome! The food was absolutely delicious and cooked exactly to our specifications. We truly had a great time and will be bringing friends for our next visit--and there WILL be another visit! I think it's safe to say that Steak 48 will now become one of our go-to spots for a great meal, in a great atmosphere with the all important great service provided!

I dined here with a friend on December 9th. We had reservations and were seated fairly quickly. We ordered the fried deviled eggs as an appetizer. They were ok. I wouldn’t get them again. We shared the 12 oz filet, prepared medium. The steak was very good, served on am extremely hot plate. So be careful of your steak continually cooking past your ordered temperature. The flavor was great. They do offer to serve your sides for you, which we declined. I thought that was a little too much service. We got the scalloped potatoes, brussel sprouts and creme brulee corn. All were very good. I do not think I would get the corn again though. Was pretty sweet as you can imagine. They gave us a free dessert since it was my birthday dinner. I chose the caramel pound cake which was good.

Overall really good experience. Would definitely eat there again.

My family and I dined at Steak 48 this past weekend for a special birthday celebration. The entire dining experience was outstanding, from the food and service to the restaurant decor. There are many great steakhouses in Chicago and I would put this latest Maestros concept at the top of the list. I cannot wait for my next visit.

Third time having dinner and it’s now our favorite spot to eat in all of the city. You are swarmed from start to finish by all available staff. Everyone is friendly, the ambiance is heavenly seductive, the food is amazing. How do they do the steaks is my question. This place is t cheap though, but be prepared for an unforgettable experience as you dine at 48. Going back next month to treat my parents

My husband and I went to Steak 48 after a matinee play and loved everything about it. The bar seating is comfortable and the bartender was fun. We were seated in one of the smaller rooms, which was beautiful. Our server, Diego, was outstanding -- very friendly and knowledgeable. He also handled a food allergy with care. Our appetizers (calamari and oysters) were very fresh, the sides (especially the mac and cheese with crab and lobster) were delicious and our steaks were cooked to perfection. The entire staff was very welcoming and professional yet fun. We thought it was the best steakhouse in Chicago...and we've been to most if not all of them. The prices were also fair, especially the drinks. We would highly recommend Steak 48.

Amazing table with a private view of the kitchen. Executive chef even posed for a picture! Boyfriend said it was one of the best steaks he’s ever had - 22oz ribeye. My filet was delicious as well. Whipped mash side and caramel vanilla cake desert were fantastic! Pricey but impeccable service and overall worth it.

My daughter and I surprised my husband for his birthday. He's a vegetarian but was able to make his main course from their side dish options. And, he was extremely excited about his red velvet bread pudding!! He probably could've eaten 2 portions!!

My go-to restaurant for business dinners and personal too. The service is outstanding and the food is exceptional. Steaks are excellent, but there are other things to like as well, such as the salmon (prepared two ways) and the short rib. Sides are delicious, such as the corn creme brulee. Excellent desserts too. Cocktails are imaginative, and the wine list, while on the pricey side, still has some good choices. Always a great evening.

We tried Steak 48 right after it opened due to not getting into our regular spot - Joe's. We have never looked back. We have been to Steak 48 at least 8 times this year and love everything about it. Unbelievable vibe in the bar and in each separate area from the Chef's tables right next to the kitchen to the Raw Bar seating area and even upstairs including some great outdoor seating for the summer months. We have never had better service at any restaurant. Tsolt has been our go to but recently he was off and we had Jose leading our experience - every bit as good. Both of them very comfortable and flawless in execution. We will continue to be loyal Steak 48 guests!

The food and service are outstanding. The only complaint would be that the tables are close together and the tables for two are small, so when you have plates for two entrees, bread and a couple of side options, it is hard to find table space for wine glasses etc. That being said, it seems more restaurants are leaning towards the tighter seating layouts these days and the food and service are worth the visit.

I was there this past Sunday night. Maybe we had a new server ? She was horrible! Very educated on the menu ... even after we told her this was our 7th time dining she proceeded to tell us about the menu and how the steak was cooked. When we reminded her that we didn’t need to hear about the menu she continued.. she also was very “ in your face “ we wanted to have a relaxing experience with great food ... the server really killed the vibe.

Excellent Steaks, maybe the best I have ever had. We chose to eat at the bar, which was lively and fun.
Again the NY Strip was fantastic and would rate it higher then any I have had in Chicago.

To me Steak 48 is the best steakhouse in Chicago. We live close so we dine often. The atmosphere is warm but eclectic. Great vibe in the bar and restaurant. We normally enjoy a bottle of wine and dinner at the bar. The wine list will satisfy almost all and the food is great. We shared a wedge salad which was excellent, we both had a filet which was perfectly done along with side of Spinach which was also great. You will always be treated well and have a great meal at Steak 48
