The customer service here is outstanding!! Everyone that works there is extremely friendly and made us feel so welcomed. They even remembered what our favorite wine was from our previous visit. The food is also delicious, the creme brulee corn is ridiculous, its a must order! There are many steak restaurant options in Chicago, but this is by far our top pick. Cant wait to return.

Came here on 12/12 to celebrate the end of the year with my best friend. The hostess immediately lead us to be seated on the second floor, although the first floor was completely empty. It was around 5:30 pm, we had dinner reservations, and the after work crowd had not yet come. Not sure why she directed us there, and as two women of color you don’t want to be overly suspicious but we couldn’t help but think a certain way. After we asked to be seated on the totally open first floor she acquiesced. After being seated, our server was very attentive, and the appetizers and drinks we chose were on point.

For our main meal I choose the rib eye with blue cheese topping, and my friend chose the New York strip with truffle butter. The server brought my steak out with what appeared to be blue cheese dressing, which left me baffled. I’ve eaten at this restaurant before and I know the blue cheese should come melted on the steak. Our waiter corrected this mistake and overall my meal was good. However my friends steak was tough, overcooked and seemed to be of low quality. The manager only asked my friend if she wanted her steak butterflied, but never offered to redo this horrendous hunk of tough beef they gave her.

The final straw of the night is when the young lady working the coat check, lost my friends coat, and asked her to come in the coat check area to find her coat herself. To say the least this was beyond unprofessional and rude, and I wonder if we were another race would she had been so quick to make this suggestion. I will definitely be reaching out to their corporate office and other social media outlets regarding our negative experience at this restaurant. African Americans please do not spend your money here. You and not valued and neither is your money. Go somewhere where you are treated equal to other patrons.

The food was very good, but for as expensive as the entrees are it should come with a side or at least a salad instead of having to pay for every side dish. The waitress was very professional and knew anything and everything about the menu. The wet cloths afterwards was a nice touch too!

The best thing about Steak 48 was by far the outstanding service. At first I was pleased with our table which was in the room by the kitchen. We find it entertaining to watch the staff. But it soon became apparent my husband and I would not be having much conversation due to loud music and depending on which tables were occupied nearby, loud voices. The food was adequate. Honestly, for the price I expected better. My beet salad was simply beets chopped on a plate with some nuts and cheese thrown on - not a lot of flavor. The au gratin potatoes were not very flavorful. My steak was ok - very tender but again not all that tasty relatively speaking when compared to other steaks I've had. My husband ordered the asparagus fries and thought the coating was too heavy. Our favorites were the dinner rolls and whipped potatoes, which for the price we can get just as good elsewhere.

The music was so loud that I couldn’t hear my husband sitting across from me. It was pop songs that seemed more appropriate for a club than such a beautiful restaurant. It really took away from the experience. Also, the website mentions appropriate attire so I wore a dress and my husband had on dress pants and a suit jacket. We were seated next to a woman in a T-shirt and another in sweatpants and gym shoes. If it doesn’t matter why put it on your site.

This was our first time here celebrating my husband’s birthday and the service and food were phenomenal. My husband ordered the ribeye and I the wagyu - both cooked to perfection. The ambiance was dope, we could view the kitchen and seafood spread. It was a great experience.

Raul, our server was absolutely fabulous! Knowledgeable, fun and friendly, didn’t miss a beat! A party seven; we shared the excellent appetizers, plenty for all of us. The meals; steak, fish and pork chops were all outstanding and served sizzling hot! We had a lovely evening and will definitely return on our next trip back to Chicago!

Fantastic service and I'm not sure if I've ever had a better steak. My wife's filet could almost be cut with a fork. Perfect portion sizes. Our waiter Wayne was attentive and helpful but in no way overbearing or intrusive. Great suggestions too.

The choice is music was very odd. A more relaxed and/or classical music choice would be better than pop being blasted.

Reservation stated business casual dress code strictly enforced. Not so true. People were in t shirts and jeans and kids were running around uncontrolled and bumped into my arm causing me to spill my wine. Food was average. Under seasoned and over cooked.
