Unfortunately, way too loud for a business dinner. Even for Chicago's Steakhouse scene, their pricing was extraordinarily high for even mediocre liquor or food items. There are too many high end steak restaurants in Chicago to give them a pass. It was the service, and we all know we have to accept shortages of staff at this time. This seemed like the management wants to take advantage because they could.

The chicken fried lobster was very good. Actually it was the best thing on the menu for me. The praline sweet potatoes were good as well. I didn't like that it is so crowed you are almost on top of each other. The table that sat next to us was so close I could have ate off their plate without moving from my seat. Also, for the price of my steak it was not very tasty as expected. I had better tasting steaks at Longhorn so that should tell you something. Overall, it was a successful night out with friends and a wonderful experience to try a new place. But will not return just overpriced food that taste mediocre but James the server gave great service.

The food was very good, however there are 5-6 better steakhouses in Chicago that are less expensive. This place has all the bells and whistles you'd expect, but you can get a little better food for a little less money at several other steakhouses in the city.

I love Steak 48 and have dined there several times in the past few months. On this particular day, which was Sweetest Day, we could not modify our reservations to add 2 people. We were given the excuse that it was a busy day and that they were expecting the tables that were empty around us to be filled very quickly. We were there for at least 2 hrs and only one of the tables near us was filled. Needles to say that the accommodation could have and should have been made seeing as if the tables were not filled as stated by the waiter. We could have asked for a manager but that wouldn't have changed anything but it did leave a bad taste in my mouth as far as wanting to come back.

I can’t believe a high-end steakhouse has the audacity to tell you the minute you sit down that there is a $100 minimum per person. How insulting. I have eaten at many steak houses in Chicago and have never been told that by any of them. That alone will keep me from going back. The steak was average the brussels sprouts were tasteless. The scallops and the oysters were fantastic. The whipped potatoes were good.And for the first time they are 500° plates overwhelmed the room we were in with the smell of a hot kitchen and grease. It was extremely disappointing considering I’ve been there three times prior. I will not be going back

Rude staff. Starting for the security guy at the door: very Rude, discourteous, impertinent. The the host, she was very unfriendly. Our waiter was nice, but asking me for more tip (already he charged without my permission 18% - we were only 4 people on table).
For sure, There are at least 200 restaurants way better than this in chicago.
Food was good but not for the price. You can eat the same steak in any other place for half of the price. They try to reach the level as a “fine restaurant” but for sure they are not!!!!
we asked for 2 Hendricks and Tonic and the barman did not has an idea how to prepare it. Not recommended!! Please don’t go and don’t waste your money.
