Steak 48 - Chicago
Book your next event with us
Rushed service really where they had the steaks lined up before half the appetizers were done and started removing the plates
A bit pushy with the service as well - didn’t have the elegance of fine dining or the feel of an upscale steak house
Steaks themselves were over seasoned for my taste but well cooked and not bad quality
But I would say there are many other great choices in Chicago
Wonderful food and service (thank you Marcus). So good that despite the heavy price, we went back the next day.
I made this reservation for my boss and associates and they raved about the food. I will definitely reserve again when they return to Chicago.
The Host was overwhelmed and the manager was not engaged for the over they over booked. 45 minutes late being sat but entire upstairs wide open. Poor staffing for restaurant show. Server was there but not leading a great guest experience. Our steaks where cooked perfectly and the sides were stellar. Red wine was served too cold and took a long while to open. Timing of the meal was spot on. No managers were visible on the floor only in the open kitchen area. They needed to be at the host stand to talk with guest. I have been to steak 48 6 times and this was my first poor/average visit
Steak 48 never dissapoints! Excellent food and service!
The service and the food was top shelf. We had customers in from Colombia and they were impressed with both the service and the variety and quality of the food. The GM did a great job accommodating our large group
Me and my wife went there on our last night in the city. Loved the place the second we walked in, great ambiance, lots of people, great decoration, Huge place!
The food was exquisite and service was spectacular!!! Would go again everytime we visit Chicago!!!
This is my second time at Steak 48. The service was great, and the waiter answered all the questions that were thrown at him. Food quality, variety and portion size was perfect. It’s a little high on the price side but for the overall experience it’s well worth it.
The ribeye was outstanding!! It was also cooked perfectly. The vanilla butter cake was a great finish with the ice cream and REAL whipped cream. Wonderful service!!
Great wine list, worth the money.
The waiter recommend that I try the chops and they were very tender and seasoned well. Thanks!
Excellent! We went on a Sunday to celebrate our eldest daughter's upcoming 18th! Our server, Anthony was superb, he felt like family! The steak and sides were phenomenal and will come back.
Great cops, bone in filet, and meat loaf. Server was prompt and very welcoming. I will be coming back again.
What can you say about perfection! When I say Steak 48 is soaring above all other in the steakhouse Chicago grouping it truly is. They know how to treat conventioneers alike. They have beautiful shellfish towers, I wanted to have some Chicago dry aged steak but instead had some American Wagyu, THE BEST STEAK IVE EVER HAD!!! The service here is what stood out as exceptional Marcus was honestly one of the best servers we’ve ever had. The timing was great, food was incredible, there really isn’t more I can say that you haven’t heard. We will be back next year!
The meal was flawless. We will be returning as often as we can!
The atmosphere is great. The food is good - solid quality but we all felt was very salty - maybe because of the rub. Otherwise great place to visit.
This was my third time. In anticipation of eating at one of my favorite steak restaurants, I bragged to my friend about the greatness of Steak48. Upon arrival, and with reservations, we were seated in the dining room inside the main bar area. I didn’t really like the seat, felt like a drop in luck to get a last minute seat in the bar. On my way to the restroom, I asked the hostess about moving. Without a problem, she made it happen. Thank you! Our server was really hurried. After receiving our food, which I enjoyed, my friend mentioned her bone-in filet wasn’t too good and very wet. She didn’t complain when the GM approached the table and asked. We’re not complainer. Later I told her that she should let the GM know, she resisted, and I insisted. After all I bragged about the restaurant and made the reservations way in advance because Steak48 is fabulous. She didn’t want to express her displeasure so I decided to do so, and asked the table assistant to have the manager go over. He asked if there was a problem, and I shared with him our conversation and her experience. Instead of the manager, he sent our server over. My mind changed about Steak48. Remember, the server was hurried all evening. After sharing my friend’s feedback, her response an offer of dessert. No thank you. Her next comment, “if I had known earlier I would have gotten you another”. I was shocked. We were not lookin for anything to be complimented but, at least, a more empathic response and apology would have gone further. The manager never made it to the table.
Took customers out and everything was exceptional
Upon being seated we were immediately served a dish of delicious hot rolls!
Excellent wine choices....nice pour of wine by the glass.
Our steaks were tender and cooked to perfection. The asparagus had that nice crunch..not soggy. As we were celebrating two birthdays our server brought warm vanilla caramel cake (delicious) and berries with whipped cream for the person in our party who was gluten free. Nice touch!
Our server was top notch!! Very attentive. As we were leaving several people thanked us for coming. Wonderful dining experience.
Visiting our son and his recommendation on the best steak in Chicago. He was right! Amazing Filets, sides- crepe brûlée’s corn should be a dessert…great wine selection and the house specialty caramel cake was beyond words. The meal was great but to make the night 5star was our service. Tony was our server and he was fantastic! Really went the extra step to make our short visit with our son beyond memorable!
Exceptional meal with great service
Everything was wonderful. Great way to celebrate a law school graduation.
Fantastic! Food was delicious. Service was impeccable.
I had one night in Chicago, and I chose Steak 48 once again. The food is amazing. So much variety. And once again, service was off the charts. Marcus is an amazing and attentive server, and we were happy to have him once again. Can't wait for my next trip to Chicago!
Steak48 always excellent food...
Was disappoomted ran out of white fish special but my filet mignon was excellent.THE BEST=DOUBLE BAKED POTATO W/TRUFFLES & the dirty martini's with stuffed goat cheese olives! YUM!

Amazing all the time
The food was wonderful, the wine fabulous and the service excellent!!!
The restaurant was great, by the time we finished our dinner, my wife already asked to come here again if we come back to Chicago.
The food was great & service was excellent!
Everything was good service, food, and desserts. The only problem I had was a woman there loudly fussing at teenage son the whole time we were there she was very loud. From the time she sat down until the time she left, she was loud and rude.
I first went to Steak 48 for my husband's birthday last September and I fell in LOVE with the excellent service and great tasting food. The steaks are so delicious with a side of Crab mac & cheese to die for. The servers and their team makes you feel like you're the only one they are waiting on. I will continue to make it a tradition for birthdays and or special holidays.
Food was awesome and delicious! Everything was on time!
Big shout out to my waiter David, his service went above and beyond.
This was my second time going. I attended back in March for my birthday and loved it. So I thought it would be a perfect place for Mother’s day.
I brought my Mother, Aunt and a friend for dinner on Mother’s Day. It was the best dining experience ever. The food and service was excellent, including the Carmel Cake. I would recommend anyone to dine at Steak 48 because the atmosphere is just as pleasing as the food and service.
This is the best Steakhouse in the Chi! I’ve been to all of them and this is the best!!!!! Chef Key and my excellent waiter Tony was sooooo nice, professional and welcoming!!! Love them! Will definitely go back and tell my family, friends and co workers!!!
Steak 48 has become my favorite steak house in Chicago
Excellent Service the food was great wine was great. Great hospitality very nice and elegant place I would go there everyday if I could.
Steak 48 is always a wonderful 5 Star experience. I look forward to my next visit as it is the go to restaurant for Mother's Day for the last 2 years.
