Very rude hostess! Not likely to go back for a while
I love the food, service was nice! I arrived about 13 minutes before my reservation and was told I had to wait I guess that's standard.
Food was overrated, terrible actually. The Morton’s tastes wayyyy better.
We absolutely Love this restaurant! We actually sat at the bar upstairs this time and had dinner. Everyone is always so helpful and accommodating.
This is by far our favorite place for dinner when we go to the city.
My husband and I went for a nice romantic dinner and it was perfect! The food was delicious and cooked to perfection.
Enjoyed steak and crab legs, both delicious. Great Brussels sprouts side, not greasy like most and love the double baked potato.
Great hostess! We asked for a a quiet booth and she sat us by the kitchen in a glass booth. It was the perfect place for us to sit! Great waiter. Efficient, personable without being overbearing. Overall perfect ambiance. I will definitely be returning!
Good food and meat but too noisy. Good wine glass.
Steaks here are just a notch above, so is the service. Our server Marcus is one of the best we’ve had in the city. We will be back soon ..... MT
Scallops were overcooked.
They did offer to remove from bill or bring another order.
I took my wife out for her birthday. We heard about Steak 48 while watching an episode of Check Please! I asked for a booth to which they accommodated us and they were so considerate they even gave my wife a birthday card. Our waiter Chris was AMAZING! We’ve been to some great restaurants with some fantastic service especially out in Vegas and Chris was by far the the BEST waiter we’ve ever had. Full of knowledge about the cuts of steak and he suggested the perfect glass of wine to us. The crispy shrimp was so delicious with the perfect amount of sweet and spice, the spice does not linger so every bite is like your first. We had a special appetizer that wasn’t on the menu, it was Carpaccio which was really good as well but when we go back we’d get a bigger size of the shrimp. I got the bone-in ribeye 22oz and my wife got the 12oz boneless filet. Both were cooked to perfection and we also got a side of whipped potatoes with all of their buttery goodness and also sautéed mushrooms which were also delicious. We got to choose our desert and they brought it out with Happy Birthday written on the plate with chocolate and a candle. We had the ultimate vanilla caramel cake and it was AWESOME! I highly recommend coming here for any occasion and we will be back.
The food was delicious but my waiter was mean . By the end of the meal she lighten up but she had a nasty disposition.
Best Steak in Chicago
It is really a good restaurant and I would give 5 starts if not for the noise level. It is stated as energetic, but even in the small separate dining room the music was so loud that we had to shout to each other. I would advertise it for the younger than 40 crowd. Sadly that is a deterrent from a really good place.
My 30th birthday dinner! Was very amazing
I wasn’t 100% pleased with my waitress she wasn’t as attentive as she was to other tables! I also would’ve preferred to sit upstairs and they didn’t pack my bread in my to go bag! Outside of that everything was amazing as usual! I will be back! It was my friends 1st experience and he was definitely pleased!
A real nice restaurant to eat at staff is friendly and food was great..
Sarah was a fantastic server and really made our experience enjoyable. On top of that, the food was very good.
The service and food were outstanding. Definitely will go back to Steak 48 again.
Love our server Zsolt. Makes it such a great experience. And the food of course is the best in the city!
Pricey and not comparable to Mastros or Swift & Sons. Generally a pompous crowd
We went here for my husband’s birthday and loved the food his second time my first. Ally our waitress was awesome 👏
Pork chops and bone in rib-eye was excellent.
Fabulous time! Great service with all of the staff and Jessica! Her suggestions helped the family throughout the experience and truly makes Steak 48 an outstanding restaurant amongst the many giants on the Chicago food scene. From the choice of black or white linens to the outstanding cocktails and an unbelievable wine list, this was our first experience here and we will definitely be back. The steaks and sides were absolutely delicious and again with Jessica’s help we ordered the perfect temp steak. What a great way to start the new decade, 2020!🎉 Cheers!
Good food, knowledgeable staff and service from start to finish. Very enjoyable evening there celebrating a birthday.
The waiter was tremendous. I wanted to get the filet but was recommended the tomahawk pork chop. I went with the pork chop and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Great experience
We were so excited to try Steak48. The food was better than good, but not excellent, as it should be for the price. And the service was terrible. Our server did not smile, seemed very annoyed, and rushed our meal. Part of what I pay for at a more expensive restaurant like this is the highest quality service. We did not have that at all. Very disappointed.
Extensive wine list and the Food was amazing. Had a variety of apps and for dinner settled on the NY strip and filet. The fries were superb! The sad part was the service I felt as though our waitress was judgmental. I used to be in the service industry and No matter who sits in your section they are money. It doesn’t matter if they’re wearing the most high end fashion or not, some people are just more discrete about flaunting their money, keep that in mind. We won’t be back
Great service besides when I first went to the bar
The food was amazing and everything tasted great. The drinks were unique and delicious as well but were pricier than bars at comparable restaurants. We really enjoyed the crispy shrimp appetizer and the filets were cooked to perfection!
I only rated the service low on this because of the hostess. Our server was amazing!
I am on a knee scooter and asked to be seated ahead of all members of my party being there which I know is the restaurant policy. It was NOT a busy night or I would not have asked. I was offered a chair in the entry like I was in time out. I could not go to the bar as it has a step which I can not navigate in my present state.
My request to be seated early was granted without a word being spoken to me simply a disgusted look and a then another person seated us.
I come to this restaurant in both the bar and the formal dining area and I recommend it quite regularly because I love the food and service. I hope that other people are not treated as I was at the host stand very often as this is an important first impression.
Never disappoints. The fresh rolls are to die for. The steaks are aged to perfection. We were in a room we Han never been in before, actually live sitting in the area near the bar.
