The food was fabulous and the table service great thanks to Heath and Chris
The door staff and manager on duty were completely awful, I’ve never been less satisfied in a restaurant in Chicago. I had a 6:30 reservation and the restaurant was empty yet they horrible hostess and horrible manager would not seat me while my guests were parking. I will never return.

If the seating area was busy is one thing, but the restaurant was empty. Terrible customer service, Steak 48 should be ashamed of themselves. You cost yourself another $200 worth of revenue

Shameful

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we felt important and recognized. We were well greeted and seated right away. Our waiters were awesome and kind. The service and food was great and I’d highly recommend this restaurant for steak or seafood. Thank you!

Great location for our 89th birthday party celebration. Steak 48 gave us a quiet table in the back where you can watch the cooks at work through a glass wall. Quite, private - worked well for our celebration.

Arrived waited a few minutes to be seated. Hostess set us- we asked for different seating, they were Avery accommodating. Waiter was busy, forgot a few things a few times, had to remind him or flag others down. Overall food was good but service lacked.

We celebrated my husband's birthday on January 8th at Steak 48 following a friend's recommendation. He definitely did not disappoint us. My husband is the pickiest person I know, so when he says "we are going back here", that means he's happy with the overall experience. Service is great! Food is amazing! The place is warm and cozy and clean. The staff are all friendly. I want to give you 10 stars but it only allows for 5.

I normally don't write a review but doing it now because our experience with Steak 48 was outstanding.

We are definitely going back.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, Steak 48 missed the mark. Compared to other steakhouses, a bit surprised about the quality of food and service.

My friend ordered a filet, which was not cooked properly as requested. Rack of lamb was ok definitely not worth the $90 (MP)! Sea bass was good. Ordered a seafood tower ... crab legs were over salty and partially frozen (oysters were good) other items were ok. After returning the crab legs, the replacements weren't any different, which we didnt enjoy nor finished (surprisingly we were still charged for the crab legs!)

Good for drinks ... skip the dinner.

I was a little disappointed about our arrival, one of the ladies apart of my party was wearing black legging type pants and there was an issue of where we would be sat because of it, after we requested to see the manager. Before the manager arrived another man was allowed to enter with his Bears Jersey and we were told it wasn't considered as SPORTS ATTIRE. Now correct me when I am wrong Bears is a SPORTS TEAM. We were not there to cause confusion and my guest didn't appear as if she was going out for a run but a pair of slim fitting black pants that so happen to be a trend for women these days. After we we made the comparison with the manager he decided that she wld be able to stay but they would have to change our seating location. Thankfully the seat we was presented with was just fine on the upper level, and our server John was great and so was the food.

Great restaurant and food was delicious. For an upscale dining restaurant we felt like we were rushed through all of our courses so they could turn the table over. Felt like our server was reading from the menu or only suggesting the most expensive item instead of getting to know what we like and building a meal around that. For a higher end steak restaurant I expected better. On the flip side, The food was pretty good - we got the KC strip and tomahawk pork chops. Both were good, served medium and more than we could eat.

Now that Del Frisco's has closed, this will be my new favorite steak place in Chicago. Steak portions are great and were cooked perfectly. The service is top notch and the martinis were wonderful. Great value overall for a high end steak place. The crowd is a bit mixed, so not sure what sort of place this will eventually turn into. But will definitely return time and time again to find out until it settles down.

I enjoyed Steak 48. However I would rate it at $$ not $$. Our bill for 5 people was $600+. Glad we didn't order more than 2 sides. The steaks and the crab legs were outstanding. I guess you get what you pay for. I will go there again but split the bill.

We celebrated my birthday at Steak 48 in Chicago, and it was a wonderful night. We had reservations at 5 pm, and we had tickets to see Hamilton at 7:30. Our waitress and the staff did a wonderful job at making the evening enjoyable without feeling rushed, and we made it to our show with time to spare. The steak was great, rolls divine, and the mac and cheese is a must - so good! Thanks so much for a wonderful meal with my family.
